Empathy and Caring in Servant Leadership with Paul Gunn

Empathy and Caring in Servant Leadership with Roxanne Derhodge and Paul Gunn

Servant Leadership 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

When I first met Paul, we discussed my soon-to-be-released book, ROR, Return on Relationships, Amplify Your Authentic Leadership to Build More Resilient Teams and the role he plays in his company as a truly authentic CEO. As my book launch is fast approaching, I wanted to reintroduce you to Paul and the fantastic information that he shared about servant leadership.

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 servant leadership and 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 leader in lifecycle and business process management.
