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!

"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination." - Albert Einstein

How are you holding up?  Are you staying home?  Washing your hands?  Staying safe?  How's your leadership life going?  Are you finding that it's a little more difficult to do what you used to do without changing things up?  You are not alone!

On this episode, I had the pleasure of talking with innovation expert, Chuck Swoboda, about his new book: The Innovator's Spirit.  This is a very relevant conversation for all of us as we are traversing through new territory. One key thing that Chuck shares is that in every crisis, there is also an opportunity.  Are you ready to grab your opportunity?  Listen and find out how you can with some great tips from Chuck!

As a note:  The internet (due to increased usage in my area) has been a bit choppy.  There are a few areas where my voice got garbled and I tried to edit it out but there are a couple of places where I couldn't.  It all still works.
