The Leadership University Podcast is a weekly exploration of one simple question: what makes a great leader? Every week we have conversations with guests who are way smarter than we are, and we get a little bit closer to answering that question. We talk with brilliant, insanely talented and experienced leaders about their successes and failures, and in doing so, we unlock secrets that help us become better leaders. With Dr. Henry Cloud as our guide, we dive deep into the nature of leadership in all its many forms, in both business and life. Previous guests include: Liz Wiseman, Formerly Global Leader of HR for Oracle, Founder Oracle University; Lauren De Niro Pipher, Former Dir. Astronaut Relations, Virgin Galactic, Current Dir. Special Situations, Uber; Jesse Itzler, Founder Marquis Jet & Zico Coconut Water, Co-Owner Atlanta Hawks; and Mindy Oliver, Dir. Customer Service at Amazon.com.

It’s not just about setting expectations and giving feedback, expecting to see results, but leaders need to take the time to think about how those expectations are set and how feedback is delivered.
