Overcoming Adversity With Sean Ackerman

The Answers From Leadership Podcast Episode 13

In episode 13 of the Answers From Leadership podcast, our guest is Sean Ackerman. Sean is a husband, father, business professional, podcaster, writer, and entrepreneur. He has over 25 years practicing business management in small privately-owned companies to larger organizations. And now he wants to help you lead yourself to success.

You can beat adversity and stress

What else do you want us to know about you, Sean?

Overcoming adversity is what I started You Leading You from. My family and I had a period of homelessness.

After this trying period, I took the bull by the horns only to crash.

From this crash, I realized he wasn’t doing much. Sure, I was busy but I wasn’t leaving a legacy. That had to change.

How did you get into leadership and become the kind of leader you are today?

8 Leadership Podcasts I Listen To

Great leaders are constantly looking to increase their knowledge. They know the more they know (and apply), the more effectively they’ll lead.

This thirst for knowledge is why I’m consistently asked what I’m reading and what I’m listening to.

Today, I want to share with all of you the top leadership posts I’m listening to and why you will want to check them out.

1. The Andy Stanley Leadership Podcast: Andy Stanley has been a huge inspiration in my life. Having seen him multiple times at the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta, GA, he’s probably had one of the largest impacts on my leadership.

Though his podcast seems to be inconsistent in coming out, you will always learn a new leadership insight from this podcast.

2. The Catalyst Podcast: Catalyst is an organization that has helped shape my leadership style and focus. Co-founded by John Maxwell, they are dedicated to helping young Christian leaders lead their churches better.
