Alain Hunkins is a leadership expert, speaker, author and coach with a recently released book called "Cracking the leadership code". He connects the science of high performance with the performing art of leadership. He is also an excellent storyteller and some of the stories from Alain in this episode include the following:

"My prospective customers are aspiring leaders.  They have many faulty assumptions--they think they "earned" being a leader, that others "should" listen to them, and comply."
"Other misunderstandings include that others understand them, they agree they care and will take appropriate action." 
“There is no absolute expectation. It all has to do with perception"
Advice from a comedian
“We’re no funnier than anyone else, we just take better notes”
Favourite quote: "Assumptions are the termites of relationships"--Henry Winkler
Cracking the Leadership Code now available on Amazon
"One of the most practical books on the planet when it comes to leadership and how to make a difference."
