Recap: A Profile in Leadership: Katie Smith Sloan & LeadingAge

This week’s episode of “Let Me Say This About That” covers two major topics all thanks to Katie Smith Sloan, president, and CEO of LeadingAge.  Susan Ryan talked with her on Episode 59. Get your seat belt fastened for this episode – it’s packed with information and insights!  Not only do we highlight the work and leadership of Sloan and LeadingAge, but we also take a deep dive into two areas she discussed with Susan. We explore Level 5 Leadership – what it is, what it includes, and how it connects to Sloan, who describes herself as a quiet leader. When Sloan was asked about the new administration in the White House, she mentioned that her biggest fear is our hyper partisan world. What does that mean in our country? We explore the polarization of America and that sparked research and discussion on a number of articles and some very tangible resources for you to use.    More about Level 5 Leadership here: https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/level-5-leadership.htm  More about the cost of polarization in our country here: https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/what_is_the_true_cost_of_polarization_in_america  More about Braver Angels here: https://braverangels.org/talking-across-the-political-divide/  More about Social Media here: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/why-social-media-makes-us-more-polarized-and-how-to-fix-it/
