Episode 186: On Voluntary Leadership and Mimesis

Listen On:

Imitation is often described as the sincerest form of flattery, but it can also serve as the best way to create new habits and learn new skills. In this episode, Chad and Stephanie talk about imitation as a tool for accelerated learning and why you need to be working with people who are better than you.
