The world needs more leaders. Leaders from the past and present share what works, what doesn't, and how you can best lead more people now and in the future.

    Bringing Words to Life with Tucker Bryant

    Bringing Words to Life with Tucker Bryant

    Words are powerful. Whether you use many or few, words have impact, and leaders need to master how and when to use them.

    Tucker Bryant is a master of words. A marketing manager at Google by day and a poet by night, Tucker believes that poetry is the best way to connect to your emotions and describe the world around you.

    Tucker is embarking on his own journey to help leaders and organizations use poetry to better connect and create meaningful experiences. Listen to this episode for Tucker's conversation with host John T. Meyer—and what's surely the coolest opening yet of any episode of the Leadmore Podcast.

    What's John Going to do Next?

    “What are you going to do next?” 
    We all face this question at every milestone in life, forcing us to think about what we want to do next, how we’ll do it, and why. For host John T. Meyer, it’s the most frequently asked question following the recent acquisition of his company, Lemonly. The answer? He doesn’t know, but he’s figuring it out—and he’ll spend the next six months documenting the process for us to learn how one leader is working through a season of change.
    In this special episode of the Leadmore Podcast, John shares three frameworks that are helping him determine what he does next.
