Continuous Improvement!!!

Brad, Just when I think your podcast can’t get any better you surprise me with another great interview. Your love of learning is both obvious and contagious. Keep up the great work!

Good info for all industries

Despite not being in building/lumber I enjoy many of these podcasts. Good leadership ideas and good interviews are time well spent for me. I especially like hearing from women and BIPOC guests who are often up against extra hurdles in the leadership positions in this industry. Learning about the tenacity required to thrive is encouraging and applicable to me. Thanks!
