Empathy in Servant Leadership with Paul Gunn

Empathy in Servant Leadership with Roxanne Derhodge and Paul Gunn

Authentic Life Quote:  “I’m going in and having these conversations and making connections based on a genuine desire to connect to understand and how it’s going to help someone other than myself.”  Paul Gunn

People today are demanding better.  At home, in the workplace as well as the companies we deal with.  We want to know that what we spend our money on is going to deserving and caring companies.  On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome servant leader Paul Gunn to share his thoughts on how we can all become more empathetic in life and in business.    

Paul has developed a career around procurement, logistics and supply chain. He is highly skilled in this domain with proven results as evidenced by the firms he has owned and the stellar delivery performance records of each firm. Some of his capabilities include consulting, training and project management implementing quality management, continuous improvement and technology solutions for global organizations leading cross-functional teams in Asia, Europe, Middle East, and America. He is a proven skilled servant leader in lifecycle and business process management.
