In this episode of the Heromakers Podcast, Laurie and Ann wrap up Season 1 of the Heromakers Podcast with an incredible conversation with Col. Jim McDonough (USA, Ret.), Executive Director of Headstrong, an organization dedicated to healing the hidden wounds of war among our active duty military, veterans, and their families. Jim shares lessons he learned from his 26 years of active duty along with other positions he has held in civilian and non-profit sectors. Jim was previously Director of Veteran Affairs for the state of New York. You can find his bio here: https://getheadstrong.org/jim-mcdonough.
Jim talks about his time overseas and those who impacted him the most, lessons he learned about working with others and leadership, and the power of vulnerability and failure in becoming a better leader.
We talk honestly about suffering in silence and about the power of breaking silence to find healing. Grab a notebook for this episode as you will find lots of great takeaways about everything from selfless servanthood to the difference between being a supervisor and being a leader.
