I love leadership, laughs (and yes) libations.  I also love learning.  Although I've been in leadership roles for over 30 years, I love talking to leaders that are in the trenches and learning what works, what doesn't and what I can do differently.

This podcast is for everyone out there that is working to lead better, get more done and leave a legacy.  Leading others is a deliberative act and we can always get better.

Pop yourself open a cold one, sit back and enjoy!

As leaders, we're...

I've been on a LOT of teams.  I've been on big teams, small teams, teams that have done very little and teams that have done a lot.  The best teams were the ones where high performance and innovation weren't a fluke, they were the norm. 

Thinking back...I've always wondered what it was that made the difference between...

What's the best present you can give your team?  Your actual presence! 

But, let's face it, we live in busy times that are often very chaotic.  As leaders, we're not just responsible for our own stuff...we're responsible for other's as well and it can be difficult to be on point and in the moment. 

This week, I have the...
