The Uniform of Leadership with Jason Romano
To be a leader is to have the ability to impact other people’s lives. It’s not about the title, the status, or the amount of money you make; it’s about being a positive influence on those around you. That’s why it doesn’t just appear in the boardroom. There are leaders everywhere — even in the most unexpected places. This week, podcast host and author Jason Romano talks about the importance of servant leadership and how understanding people’s unique value makes a better team.
Win in the Dark with Lucas Jadin
It can be easy to get stuck in a mental prison where your outlook on life focuses on your fears and insecurities, rather than your potential. It takes self-awareness and a willingness to challenge your inner voice to break free of these internal weights holding you down. This week, author and mental architect Lucas Jadin talks about the power of mental preparation and resiliency and how to commit to unpacking the mental side of life.
Investing in Your Future Leadership Skills with Ryan Hawk
For Ryan Hawk, learning the importance of practice and patience came at an early age. When he was 14 and a freshman in high school, he never expected to play on his school’s varsity football team. He spent months training hard and learning from the best. When the first game of the year came around, he was put on the field and ultimately threw the game-winning touchdown pass. Looking back, he realized it was the work he’d put in ahead of time that led to this early success.
Power of Positivity with Jon Gordon
For Jon Gordon, life has been a journey and faith has been at the core of it all. In his early 30s, he entered into a time of questioning and exploration. It led him to read about different religions and types of spirituality and by the time he was in his mid-30s, he decided he wanted to get baptized. Through these varied experiences, Gordon learned to identify his core purpose in life, which he says is crucial for thoughtful decision-making.
BONUS: How Should Athletes & Parents Manage Sports Cancellations & Grief
Former guest Kip Watson, the founder of BrainCode Corp, joins this week's BONUS episode to discuss the world of sports during covid-19, how parents & youth athletes can manage the grief, pain, and heartbreak of league cancellations, and the importance of personal responsibility in overcoming pain.

Mayhem Mindset with Jim Hensel
For Jim Hensel, it all came down to one very important conversation. Facing a challenging time with his work and family, he found himself in the car with his uncle one day. His uncle told him it was time to take responsibility for his life and where it had gone. It was the spark that lit the fire for Hensel and set him on the path toward accountability and self-determination. Shortly thereafter, he wrote down his Strength and Honor Code, which he now lives by, and started to work with children.
