Was the Game of Thrones season too short for you? ME TOO! So, I thought I'd keep it alive by talking about GOT and leadership. There are so many lessons to be gleaned from this show and this week I get to kick off this podcast series with Ken Okel. Ken knows about getting things done under pressure and getting it done right. We discuss how we each have a dragon, how taking a drink and being quiet can help us, and how each of us leaders needs to think about what our Army of the Dead is. Kick back, pour yourself some ale, and listen in!
More on Ken...
For more than a decade, TV audiences watched Ken on the news. At several stations, they saw him perform as a TV news anchor, a reporter, a weatherman, and even a talk show host. Ken covered natural disasters, school shootings, and grieving families. It wasn’t always sad as he got to meet celebrities, find out what makes unforgettable people tick, and get paid to do things like free fall 70 feet, ride through the streets in a motorized armchair, and be safely attacked by a police dog.
Ken then moved into the nonprofit world for several adventures. These saw him do everything from running a professional ballet company to organizing more than 100 hurricane relief volunteers. Through it all, he understood the value of helping those in need.
Today people know Ken for his leadership presentations to companies and associations. Audiences are engaged and entertained as they receive the tools necessary to transform their professional lives. Some enjoy taking part in Ken’s famous Paper Hat Exercise.
How could Ken pass up a chance to be a part of the online world? People around the world listen to his award-winning podcast, The 2 Minute Takeaway. Ken is also know for his weekly column, The Whiner of the Week.
