Today we're interviewing Mike Watson, Founder of Heart-centric Leadership, about what else - heart-centric leadership! What is heart-centric leadership?

Here's what Mike has to say about it: "There is a leadership and engagement crisis in organizations that I believe (and I am doing research on for my doctorate) is associated with a lack of willingness by leaders to embrace spiritual intelligence, along with IQ and emotional intelligence. This crisis extends beyond the organization and into our home lives wherein we are all leaders of our own lives, and is evident with the number of people that say they don't know what their purpose in life is, and how to find it. When we listen to our heart, and let it inform our mind prior to decision-making then we are also allowing space for spiritual intelligence to guide us on our own purposeful journey."

Mike spent 15 years in organizational leadership, where his insights and foundation were shaped for Heart-centric Leadership www.mikewatson.today. He has done multiple keynotes and workshops for Universities and organizations. He's also appeared on HuffPost Live 3x as guest panelist to discuss leadership and social activism, and has been the beloved Emcee for TEDx Charlotte. He is currently completing his doctorate in organizational leadership, with a dissertation on Spiritual Intelligence in Leadership, with an online course series launching this summer. 

He will be hiking Mount Kilimanjaro in July to raise awareness and money for the prevention of foot-born diseases, and to honor the work of Samaritan's Feet 15 year anniversary. Join us as we pick the genius brain and warm heart of Mr. Mike Watson.
