I started following Brent online when he was posting samples of the weekly newsletter he prepared for the physicians at his hospital. A lot of today’s leaders forget about this old school, but very effective way of communication. Later he started posting his music videos. I highly recommend listening to his music as Brent is a very accomplished musician. From his music choices, you can tell he was a rock ‘n roller back in the day. What began as a personal reflective time for Brent, became something he shared with the LinkedIn community weekly. For him, it’s his time for relaxation and an opportunity to clear his head. Leaders need to find time away from their work to rest both physically and mentally. It makes for better leaders in the long run.
I’m happy to include Brent’s thoughts on communication and reflection in the book.
