This week, GroupSense CEO Kurtis Minder was featured on the first episode of the "When Leaders Talk" podcast. The new podcast focuses on success stories, failures, and what is needed to be a good leader. Host Stefano Calvetti pulls on his years in the Italian navy to get down to what makes certain leaders impactful.
During the episode, Stefano and Kurtis talk about how Kurtis and the co-founders built GroupSense's culture from the ground up. Through mistakes along the way, getting vulnerable with the team, and learning from blunders, GroupSense is building a collaborative culture.
Through their conversation, they identify some of the ways that Kurtis transitioned from being a daily manager to being a leader, including:
- Making time to fulfill personal interests
- Being vulnerable with your team
- Cultivating self-awareness by constantly seeking the "why" in each decision
