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!

She's been a Pastor, a Vice-President and President of a College and now is the Assistant to the Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America for Executive Administration.  Her name?  Louise Johnson.  

From my first meeting with Louise a little over a month ago, I knew that she was the kind of leader I could follow.  That's saying a lot because my expectations are pretty high when I'm following.  Louise's grasp on what it takes to build a team and then lead them through the challenge of change is a matter of record.  She and I discuss faithful leadership and innovation in these turbulent time...and listening to this episode will be worth YOUR time.

More on Louise (in her own words)...

I am an ordained pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and an experienced executive leader. I have a long and demonstrated history of effective innovation, change leadership, and organizational transformation. I was President of a struggling school in a downward trending industry. In less than five years, the school experienced the highest enrollment and fund raising years in its 165 year history. I am skilled in Communication, Strategy, Public Speaking, and Finance, but I am fundamentally a leader. I know how to build a strong team, work with a variety of constituencies, and drive toward mission. In addition to a Master of Divinity degree, I have a Certificate in Leadership and Management from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education.
