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 person that talks and has no like a garden full of weeds." - Unknown

What's it cost to be kind?  NOT A DAMN THING!  So...if it's free why aren't more people practicing kindness?  That's the kind of question that is best left up to asking Mr. Owl (of Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop fame) but this week we do talk about the kindness habit with my good friend and fellow cowbell enthusiast, Allison Clarke, CSP.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Allison for quite a while.  She smart, funny and walks the walk.   Her leadership views parallel my own (maybe that's why I like her so much).  

I know you'll enjoy our conversation as much as I did.  Grab a cold one and ENJOY!
