For speakers and leaders….I wasn’t going to share this with you, but I think you’ll be glad I did. Derek Loudermilk, host of The Art of Adventure podcast, interviewed me on a book he’s writing, and I recorded it for my own records. But as I listened to the playback I realized that there was so much good content in it about what makes a great leader and leadership as a practice, and more, that I couldn’t not share it with you. Be warned, the audio is a bit rough, but if you can get past the typing sounds, you’ll be glad you did.
