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!

Was this year a reset or a regress?  Regardless, it's never too late to start a new path.

On this episode, I talk with coach Jess Ruggieri.  This woman has got the goods!  One (of many) things I took from our time together is how dedication and consistency always provide results.  Take the time to do yourself a favor and take a listen!

CHEERS!

More on Jess (from Jess)...

My purpose is helping people live better. My career is engaging employees. To me, feels like a perfect fit of personal & professional purpose.

A few of the ways I do this:

1) have been the lead trainer & operations manager at the fun dept. where I had the opportunity to work closely with leaders, managers, and employee engagement teams teaching them a simple model of brief and all-inclusive activities to connect their teams and boost morale.

2) I utilize my Masters in Health Promotion and certificate of Health Coaching to work with individuals who are looking to establish healthy behavior change.

3) As a personal trainer and fitness coach, I take care of my own health and inspire others to stay active, stay connected, and stay inspired.

4) Working at UD with our Development & Alumni Engagement Staff creating a workplace culture that is the premiere place to work in the high education space.
