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!

It's always nice when you get to talk to someone whose leadership ideas and practices align so closely with your own AND you get to learn some new stuff along the way.  This week's guest, Steven Iwerson, CSP is the BOMB!  He's a seasoned leader who knows how to deal with "prickly" people and with "prickly" situations.  We talk about how everyone deserves to be respected, how to properly race a porcupine and his new book!  Check it out!
