Loved Ep. 260

In 260 Chris vocalizes something I’ve never been able to put into words.

I manage a team of 4 in a fast paced learning environment and Chris nails it with his 4 requirements for successful teaching

Also Lorenzos comparison to a cooking show was hilarious and so true

MichaelUnbroken ,

Powerful show for leaders

I've been in leadership for the majority of my career and this show is like a companion for me on my journey. Leadership can sometimes feel lonely but when I listen I always feels like someone has my back!

Redbullio ,

Aspirations to do great things in leadership

I was given the wonderful opportunity to experience leading in a non traditional space with the guidance of people who work directly with Lorenzo. And it was through this that I was given this series. I have learned so much from this in regards to helping those I was responsible for supporting and it has carried over to my actual position within my company… I almost feel like this is required listening to truly understand to to be an effectual leader and to provide the best support… make sure you take it all in and prepare to be transformed.
