Episode 1: Heart and Humility with Kate Kelly and Kim Motes

If there was ever a time to lead with heart, it was during the trying times of 2020-2021. This episode explores those who embody heart-based leadership, to inspire loyalty and build powerful relationships by being kind, caring, and humble. Leading with heart doesn’t always mean a soft approach, it can also mean high expectation and firm accountability.

Beth Kieffer Leonard kicks off this first episode with her vision on leading with heart and what this leadership style can inspire. She moderates the conversation in an interview style with Kate Kelly from PNC Bank and Kim Motes for the Children’s Theater. Camille Burns from national WPO joins Beth during the episode intro to speak to the outstanding community of WPO Chapter One.
