Dr. Andrew Temte on his new book, 'Balancing Act: Teach Coach Mentor Inspire'

In times of chaos and uncertainty, steadfast and confident leadership is critical to the success of any organization. Yet, in our world of social unrest, sharp divisions, pandemic and fear, people seek leaders who are also sensitive to ethnic and cultural differences, listen to their concerns, and demonstrate empathy.

A seasoned executive and mentor with experienced insights on preparing future leaders, Dr. Andrew Temte, CFA, President and Global Head of Corporate Learning at Kaplan North America, firmly believes: “The most important attribute of strong leadership is balance.” In his new book, "Balancing Act: Teach Coach Mentor Inspire,” Dr. Temte shares candid insights and timely lessons about the balance needed to succeed as a leader. A thought leader on issues related to workforce reskilling and upskilling, Dr. Temte's 30+ year career includes teaching and executive leadership roles in both professional education and higher education institutions.

In his interview with Rebecca Ray, Dr. Temte introduces the concept of organizational entropy and dives deeper into the tools used to combat it. Specifically, Dr. Temte discusses the benefits of adopting a "Lifelong Learning Mindset," a unique view into the tenets of continuous improvement, the basic tools to identify and minimize waste in your business, the relationship between organizational health and business success, and the importance of having a laser-focus on your customer. More information on "Balancing Act" can be found here.
