I always enjoy when I get to interview successful leaders on my C-Suite radio show.  However, it was a nice change to be on the other end of the interview for a change.  I was recently showcased on The Leadership Coaching Group’s show with Liz Roney.  We discussed emotional intelligence based on my research for my book It’s Not You, It’s Your Personality.
