In my featured conversation, Jay Steinfeld, author of “How to Lead From The Core,” states why expressing yourself is a lead core value in his leadership, “I’m happy to express myself. It’s one of my three core values to express yourself. And that means to be honest and authentic and say exactly what’s on your mind as long as you are respectful.”
Also, on today’s show, I’ll feature conversations I had with Jeff Altman on his podcast, “No B.S. Job Search Advice,” and with Rhona Barnett-Pierce on my live stream show, “The Modern Job Search Checklist.”

Here’s more about Jay:
- As long you’re respectful, self-expression is essential and part of Jay’s three core values
- “If they don’t give you that voice if they don’t give you the opportunity to say what you want. Then you’re going to look elsewhere because they don’t respect you. “
- If you’re transient and move from place to place, consider your network to help you find opportunities.
- You will have more fun working for an employer whose core values align with yours.
- “The missions can change the direction that you go can change. But the core values, don’t the core values stay true because they are core. That’s what drives your behavior.”
- Jay says that servant leadership is to make that decision and to provide whatever tools, money, support, technology, processes, and capital allocation to make sure that that happens. If you say you will but won’t, the work won’t happen.
- If you make emotional and trust deposits, you can make withdrawals as a leader.
I will publish the last episode on May 10. The final episode for this season will be a montage of the best quotes, interviews, and job-search advice from the year.
