It’s not every day we get to learn about leadership from a man who started as a busboy and rose to the C-Suite of major hospitality brands like Hilton and Marriott. Today our guest is Kimo Kippen, chief learning officer, global talent development leader, and brand ambassador at Hilton Worldwide, who was awarded the prestigious 2015 CLO of the Year award by CLO Magazine. In his conversation with Halelly Azulay, host of the TalentGrow Show podcast, Kimo defines leadership and shares how to practice authentic leadership, ways to develop your self-awareness, and how to be a better coach to your team members. He suggests ways to navigate the complexity of today’s diverse workforce realities and specific questions you can put to use right away to help you build trust and invoke higher performance from your team. Plus, Kimo reveals the biggest mistake leaders make and suggestions for becoming a better leader (and even networker!).
