71 – Paul Callan: Founder of The Callan Course Discusses “Heroic Leadership”

Paul CallanThis is Paul’s second visit to the Dose of Leadership Podcast.  I invited Paul back to the podcast in an attempt to try something different on the show; I wanted to create a “themed” podcast where we focus on one topic. Paul is a great friend and he has created a fantastic leadership development program that focuses on the idea of “Heroic Leadership”. Coming from the warrior culture of the Marine Corps I was intrigued with this idea and thought it would be a great topic for our first themed podcast.

Here is how Paul describes the concept of “Heroic Leadership”: “The highest form of leadership is what I call Heroic Leadership—living a life of noble purpose, honorable aspiration, right action, and a commitment to something greater than oneself. Today, we too often settle for accidental leadership. We mistakenly think of leadership as if it were a coat: something we put on at 8a.m. and take off at 4p.m. Heroic leaders never make that mistake. For Heroic Leaders, leadership is a way of life. For Heroic Leaders, the coat never comes off!”

Paul is a retired US Marine Corps Colonel with nearly 30 years of experience as Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Executive VP, and VP of Supply Chain Management. Paul has honed his expertise through dynamic operational experiences including combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan coupled with advanced education at the post-graduate level.

He has extensive experience leading teams and organizations, providing strategic planning, executive coaching, leadership training and development, and organizational assessment.
