Talk the Walk

Ken enthusiastically recounts his experiences as a leader! The good, the bad, and the ugly of leadership. This isn’t some commercially created content or something from a text book. This is a real life leadership journey all leaders should listen to, especially aspiring and new leaders. I’ve known Ken for awhile and there are two things for sure about him: his hat and his authenticity!
