Episode 064: Dr. Krish Kandiah and Jason Jaggard on Leading with Your Heart
A decade ago, Dr. Krish Kandiah’s leadership bio would read like a typical academic—including titles like author, speaker, apologist and university professor. Then, his wife suggested they consider fostering and adoption. After that point, his personal experiences with foster children moved him to create the British foster care charity Home for Good and become an advocate for fostering and adoption throughout the United Kingdom. In this episode of the GLS Podcast, Jason Jaggard interviews Krish, exploring the leadership insights he has gained through his foster care experiences, including a deeper understanding of what it means to become a servant leader, the importance of proximity and how to approach leadership with both head and heart.
