As part of my nationally syndicated radio show, Take the Lead, I interview top leaders and successful individuals who share their success stories. I recently had the chance to interview Doug Conant, former Campbell’s Soup CEO and author of Touchpoints: Creating Powerful Leadership Connections. Doug has been listed as one the Top 100 Most Influential Authors in the World. His work at Campbell’s is one of the top case studies that demonstrates the importance of engagement.
