In this episode of Transform Your Workplace, Brandon Laws sits down with guest Leo Macleod — thought leader, consultant, and author of From the Ground Up. Listen in as the two discuss stories from Leo’s new book about those who have gone from contributor to leader despite the challenges of climbing the corporate ladder.



  • At the start of the typical career, we are taught to own a task completely and to work independently,
  • The challenge arises when we move into a position of managing other people because we tend to hold on to the project, which is not a good recipe for empowering others.
  • Start by designing your ‘mountain’ —both personally and professionally — and that will inform what skills you need to develop to move forward in your career.
  • Aligning yourself on a team with your mentor puts you in a position of learning the skills and getting the experience to progress in the workplace.
  • Be mindful of how you're spending not so much your time but your energy.
