What’s Your Dream?

Phronesis: Practical Wisdom for Leaders

with Diogo Seixas


Quotes From This Episode
  • “You can really learn leadership if you do this right… and because I saw myself changing, my friends changing, I decided that that was something that I wanted to pursue.”
  • “I knew that I wanted to help people. I didn’t know, how. When I learned about leadership – that became a passion and I connected both things.”
  • “That’s my call to action…I had to do something about it. Because I was only talking about it. I was only telling people, ‘hey, this is why you should have a dream.’ But I never taught them how to have a dream.”
  • “I want people to stop and evaluate what’s happening. Now. Then go and make a conscious decision of what comes next.”
