Fearless – Leadership Lessons at the Crossroads

During the early days of the pandemic, CEO of OneCause, Steve Johns showed incredible leadership through the dual crises of the pandemic and the racial tension after the murder of George Floyd. Steve has written a book about those early months, the decisions he and his leadership team made, and some real time reflection on the evolving situations. Fearless – Leadership Lessons at the Crossroads is a collection of Steve’s weekly updates to his team. Reading it is like putting yourself right there in the moment. Steve returns to Status Go to talk about the lessons he learned from the struggles during 2020 and 2021. If you enjoy this episode, we invite you to tune into Steve’s previous Status Go episode.
