About this Episode

Wendy King is Executive Director/CEO of the International Order of the Golden Rule, and an Executive Director at Raybourn Group International. She has taken a rather colorful career path over the past 35 years. Along the way, she has had to become an expert in fields such as the police and fire service, the roller skating industry, and even the funeral profession. Listen as she explains how she led with her heart and not just a map.

Wendy talks about how regardless of the job you are doing, grasp the opportunity to learn from it. Every experience you have better prepares you for your next job. Show initiative early on (and grab new responsibilities), grow from your mistakes, and finally, fake it until you know it - we all do it. If you are not ever afraid, then you are probably not growing in your role.
