Breaking the Chains of Insecurity: A CFO's Leadership Journey (With Owen Wyss)

In this podcast, we discuss how insecurities can unconsciously shape our lives and how assimilating into a new team is crucial for leaders. We also explore how leadership extends beyond work and involves avoiding projecting personal expectations onto others.
