Leadership is not just for Marines

My Marine son-in-law and I were looking for road-trip entertainment. Moments in Leadership was suggested for us I am glad we started listening. I heard some great insights into leadership that applies not only to the military but also to the civilian world.

After our trip, I was intrigued enough to start from the beginning. I highly recommend giving this a listen.

Candid & Authentic: Distilled Leadership lessons Multiple generations

One of my favorite podcasts. Dave has a unique way of getting the stories we’ll learn the most from. Almost like sitting around BSing but way more productive! Between the Hotwash, Andy Milburn and Gen Alford it’s hard to say what my favorite episode is but that just means we’ll have to figure it out for ourselves. Would love to see some more Sr enlisted on the show but that just means I’ll have to make some recommendations!! Great work and a must listen for any serious leader. Semper Fidelis Teufelhunden !!

Real quick real quick ,
