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!

Are you ready for something new?  Or, how about something a bit different?  Then this week's episode is for you!  I was so excited to talk to my guest this week, Melissa Agnes, because it was a topic I had never covered on the show and something that was completely new to me.  Melissa is a brand and crisis communications expert and she knows her STUFF!  There is so much great content in this episode that you're going to need to listen to it more than once.  Melissa shares how to handle things when crisis occurs but, more importantly, how to be prepared to mitigate the fallout.  ENJOY!
