It takes engaging leaders to engage leaders – leaders of good faith, good will, and also of good humor. In this episode Dave Hillis and Rick Enloe explore the role of humor in setting a table of joy where everyone is engaged through sharing the communion of laughter and pain. Together, these essential components of life shared at a common table bring people together, engage everyone present, and expand our capacity to see, hear, care and play together, turning our streets and cities into playgrounds.
How do you make cities better? In this episode, Rick Enloe and Dave Hillis further explore the Advancement Plus Project and the singular focus that it produced: LF develops leaders who drive the wheel of change in their cities.

In this Whispercast, we explore Leadership Foundations' Advancement Plus Project through the lens of Thomas Kuhn's idea of paradigm shifts.
