Love the Diversity of Guests

Leadership is such a broad topic. It ranges from leading yourself to coaching sports teams, heading up organizations, politics and the military to name a few. Knowing that, I appreciate the diversity of guests Patrick has on his show. Some are giants in their field (Goldsmith, Cialdini, Clark) and others, while not as well known, are pleasant surprises. If you want to grow your leadership capacity give this podcast a listen.

Motivate Me to Action Every Time

Every time I finish listening to an episode, I’m completely stoked to try new leadership and entrepreneurial ideas. I’m at my desk now motivated to tackle a new idea after listening to episode 49 with author and wildpreneur Tamara Jacobi. Same result after listening to episode 46 with Atlanta Braves prospect Dansby Swanson. Two guests in particular who are young and honestly had me wondering if they could help me, but they were both outstanding episodes. Dr. Leddin is always exceptionally prepared and the episodes are always entertaining, too. Count me in for the long haul!
