5 Guiding Principles of Leadership Performance with Ben Putterman
My guest on this episode is Ben Putterman, a Learning and Talent Development leader with over 20 years of experience enhancing personal and organizational performance in multiple industries. I first met Ben when I transitioned from SolarCity to Tesla where he led the Global Learning & Development team, Tesla Academy. Currently, he is the Head of Global Sales Enablement & Readiness at LinkedIn. Throughout his career, Ben has been committed to the belief that any business only goes as far as its people will take it and that people in the right conditions and with the right support can accomplish amazing things. On the show, we learn what type of job he feels everyone should have at some point in the career, why leadership, people and culture matter, what is the first job of any leader, and what lessons he learned early in his career when he worked with the best-selling author of Multipliers, Liz Wiseman. He also shares the 5 key areas he and his leadership team focus on to reach optimal performance, why he believes in always assuming positive intent, what are the skills critical to advancing your career, how self-awareness is the cornerstone of learning, and how letting go of being a micro-manager will set you free. This show is full of insights like these and others so please enjoy the conversation with Ben Putterman on another episode of Insight Out!
