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!

“Be yourself! Don’t try to fabricate your personality in the guise of impressing others.”  ― Ashish Patela

Do you hate giving presentations?  You're not alone.  Most do.  But, research suggests, that people that can effective present get promoted faster, make more money, and eat without gaining weight (I made that last fact up) (But...I wish it were true)).

If you're looking to "up your game" in presenting the material that is going to make a difference for your organization, then this episode is for you!  I had the great privilege to talk to, Diane Diresta!  She is a communications expert, presentations expert, former media coach for the short, she has got the GOODS!

I've been speaking professionally for nearly 10 years and Diane gave me some tips I had never considered before so get a pen, get some paper and get ready to get better!
