Dear reader,

The What

For the last two months, I have been interviewing leaders and sharing their leadership journeys in a mini-newsletter. As a subscriber to this (Deploy Yourself) newsletter, you will get the best-curated insights from these interviews in a mini-email like this one. I will send it in the gap week between two regular newsletters. You can also read this mini-issue online.

The Why

We all have a lot to learn from the stories of our leaders – of how they came to be where they are today. These are stories peers and friends don’t usually know, and my attempt is to give you an opportunity to learn from those who have already tasted success and made an impact.

Find out about the events from their lives that shaped them to be the person and leader they are. In the interview, they also share about the people who have influenced them the most in their leadership.

The Who(s)

Mark Horoszowski – “Leadership takes a lot of practice, introspection, and training!”

Mark Horoszowski is the CEO and co-founder of MovingWorlds – which is an award-winning social enterprise that helps individuals scale world-changing ideas. He shares how coming from an immigrant family helped him to be more open to giving and receiving help than most people. He talks about the importance of physical activities for approaching any issue from different perspectives.

In his own words, “Leadership is a challenging skill that takes a lot of practice, introspection, and training.” He further talks about his passion for fairness. “Creating a fair and sustainable planet means we need to tackle the biggest system challenges of our time, and I’m passionate about using my time and skills to do that.”, he adds.

How can you contribute?

Each one of us is on a leadership journey. Our journeys might not look alike. They might resemble more of a roller-coaster ride than a race track, and that is what makes each one of us special and unique in our own ways. I am deeply touched when someone takes the time to share their story with me. The leaders I work with are also left inspired when we listen to each other’s leadership journeys.

If you think that your leadership journey is worth sharing and would be valuable to others, reach out and allow me the privilege to interview you. If you would like to recommend someone else who I should interview, feel free to write to me. You can send me a message on LinkedIn or send me an email at

That’s all for this week! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate. Just hit reply.

See you next week with the regular newsletter.

With gratitude,
