#207- Alan Dunstan & Lewis Keens: What We Can Learn From Fear
Show Notes

Alan Dunstan and Lewis Keens join me on the show for a discussion about the role that fear plays in our lives in regards to our growth and learning. 

As Alan and Lewis co-host their own podcast called Infinite Leaders, we decided that we would release our conversation on both of our podcasts. 

Both Lewis and Alan have leadership roles in education and have a combined 33 years of experience between them. They are passionate about leadership development and have devoted themselves to not only learning as much as they can about what great leaders do, they regularly share this knowledge on their Infinite Leaders podcast which now has more than 60 episodes. 

Great story here…..Alan was Lewis’s physical education teaching in high school many years back. After graduating from high school, Lewis and Alan developed a deep friendship which led to them working together for many years in Asia at a top international school. 

We decided to connect and do this podcast as we have many similar values and beliefs when it comes to leadership development. In our conversation today, we unpack what fear is and why it is so important in our life. 

We not only look at it from an evolutionary perspective, but also strategies to grapple with fear when faced with uncertainty, challenge, and hardship. Alan and Lewis bring a load of experience and knowledge into this conversation today. 

It was a pleasure to connect with them and I look forward to further collaboration.
