Hamza is a multi-award winning marketer, best-selling author, and global keynote speaker whose TEDx talk “Stop Managing, Start Leading” has been viewed over a million times.

In our episode with Hamza last season, we talked about his leadership experiences, challenging the status quo, as well as his take on burnout being a leadership issue. In today’s episode, we focus on his new book, Leadership Reinvented and go through his belief that Servitude, Innovation, Diversity, and Empathy (SIDE) are the key to 21st century leadership. We hope you enjoy this episode with Hamza Khan.
