Incisive and Thoughtful

Jesan Sorrells combines thoughtful scholarship with clear application of content to the modern leader. He is a needed and helpful guide through the bloated world of “leadership” training. Take some time and learn! He even reaches out to build up young people.

Great insight

I have had the pleasure of engaging personally with Jesan and have always come away from our time together encouraged and challenged. He has the ability to see the key issues in a leadership situation and then provide sound counsel on how to take the next step forward. I believe anyone will be a better leader by time spent in his presence.

Stephen King's Dear Reader ,

Jesan Sorrells is a Heterodox thinker

If you like John McWhorter, Sam Harris, Jocko Willink, Jordan Peterson, or and of those thinkers operating in the world today, you’ll love this podcast. Literature guides us in ways that very few arts ever do. This podcast seeks to explore the links between literature, business, philosophy and more for leaders in all realms from the civic to the social. Lead better by listening to this podcast.
