028: Barbara Stegemann – Mission
Welcome to Episode 028 of the Transformational Leader Podcast with one of our Top 4 Finalists from the Transformational Leadership Award, Barbara Stegemann! Named one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada, first female Honorary Colonel for 14 Wing Greenwood base, Royal Canadian Airforce, also author of the bestselling book, “The 7 Virtues of a Philosopher Queen.” She really does it ALL! Stegemann is the Founder & CEO of The 7 Virtues, a Canadian company sourcing fair market natural essential oils from nations rebuilding after war or strife. They are on a mission to ignite a cavalry of businesses to come and do trade with nations rebuilding.
On this episode, Barbara shares with us how she didn’t expect leadership to happen to her – she was just doing life like any other person. Her mentor who was serving in the forces at the time was wounded in Afghanistan and she promised him to take on the mission of peace. Stegemann shares with us her journey to oils and how she got into the industry with absolutely no background at all. Someone has to make a change as Rick Morris said and Barbara did just that. Through all the struggles and bank rejections, Barbara never gave up and we are so lucky to have her as a guest and share the mission she created and the beautiful path of leadership she is now on!
