Mike interviews Mike Milano.

In this riveting podcast episode, prepare yourself for an immersive journey into the world of leadership as the one and only Mike Milano spills the beans about his game-changing book, “Large and In Charge No More.” Trust me, you’re in for a treat—a no-nonsense conversation that delves into the real, raw essence of leadership, pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo.


Our conversation kicks off with Milano setting the stage for an exploration of leadership principles that flip the script. Forget the typical leadership talk filled with buzzwords and clichés; this is a genuine discussion about what it takes to be a leader who connects with their team on a whole different level. Milano, a seasoned author and speaker, unleashes a wealth of insights that’ll leave you nodding your head in agreement and jotting down notes like your life depends on it.

Now, let’s get to the good stuff—the heart of the conversation. Milano takes center stage, advocating for a leadership style that embraces vulnerability. It’s not your run-of-the-mill leadership spiel; it’s leadership with foresight, an artful dance of thinking ahead, strategizing, and preparing for the curveballs life throws your way.

But what sets this episode on fire is the authenticity oozing from every word. Milano’s tonality is not your typical business podcast monotone; it’s like sitting down with a wise buddy at your favourite bar. No fluff, no unnecessary jargon—just two guys having a real talk about what it means to lead from the heart. Milano introduces the concept of authentic versus strategic vulnerability, driving home the point that being open about your limitations is a strength, not a weakness.

As the conversation flows, Milano seamlessly weaves in personal stories that breathe life into the leadership principles he’s preaching. This ain’t no abstract theory; it’s the real deal, with Milano laying bare moments when he questioned his own leadership. It’s like getting an all-access pass to the behind-the-scenes of a leader who’s not afraid to admit imperfections.

Entrepreneurship takes center stage as Milano draws parallels between personal development and the business journey. It’s not just about making money; it’s a journey of self-discovery cleverly disguised as a business venture. Milano’s take on self-awareness, maintaining composure, and fostering an abundance mindset is nothing short of mind-blowing, making this episode a must-listen for aspiring entrepreneurs.

Hold on tight; things get emotional as Milano tackles the inevitable setbacks and failures leaders face. He urges leaders to embrace vulnerability as a tool for dealing with setbacks and openly admits to his own role in organizational failures. It’s a rare gem—a take on accountability that’s often missing from the leadership discourse.
