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 heart of leadership is people.  Every person is different and every leader is different which, yes, makes every interaction unique.  Do you know how to connect with your individual team members and get their real story?  You need to if you want to lead in today's world.  You're in luck! 

This week's guest, Stan Meytin, is the master at getting the real story and on this week's podcast we talk about how to break down the barriers between you and the team to create real connections.  This was a particularly fun interview for me and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  CHEERS!

More on Stan (in his own words)...

I am a serial storyteller. Do you want a good story? Try the one about how I wear my emotions on my sleeve, or the one about the chip on my shoulder. I strive to outperform myself everyday and bring something extraordinary to the world!

I am a creator, a builder, and a producer. I get a kick out of seeing ideas come together, even when they are not my own. Everyone has ideas, but they're nothing without execution. That's where I come in. It's in my blood; I was born that way. My life is about discovering, communicating and executing. My gift is understanding the needs of people, companies, brands, and products. My virtue is developing concepts that excite, engage and connect customers with companies. Since the day I turned a profit in the schoolyard selling candy, I have been an inspired entrepreneur. Business is a way of life, but it does not rule my life.

I want to build something that people get excited about, that inspires and motivates. I am driven by the customer experience and won't stop working until their experience is flawless. My wife thinks I'm crazy and says I'll never stop working. Coming from the hospitality industry has a tendency to do that.

Hospitality made me who I am. It made me insist upon only the very best service, both as a consumer and a humble supplier. I strive to get things done ahead of schedule and provide the best experience for all involved.

The digital landscape drove me to adapt. I take an aggressive but intuitive approach to marketing. I laid many foundations and have built upon them ever since. I love to adopt new technology but never let it adopt me.

A perfect day is surrounding myself with innovators, creators, and dreamers. Yet I understand why people need to feel the safety of conformity, and I don’t judge anyone for being that way. In fact, I love that we're all different. My goal is to connect people emotionally, regardless of their differences.
