    Grit, Gut, and Relationships (with Chris Cabott)

    Before he repped the first-round NFL draft picks and negotiated mega endorsement deals, Chris Cabott was a small-town Pennsylvania kid who was driven to help others make a difference. Decades later, Chris still feels compelled to help, but he also knows what it takes to build long-lasting, meaningful relationships. On this week’s episode we link up with Chris, the president and CEO of Steinberg Sports & Entertainment, to talk about the lessons he’s learned about managing elite talent, rebounding from failure, and always trusting your gut.

    A Frontline Data Revolution (with Ville Levaniemi)

    A Frontline Data Revolution (with Ville Levaniemi)

    If the customer is always right, shouldn’t we listen to what they have to say? And shouldn’t we get their feedback to the employees who can act on it? That’s just what Ville Levaniemi’s company, HappyOrNot, is doing. The company’s globally recognizable feedback system uses smiley faces—and frowny faces—to instantly turn consumer responses into clear, actionable information. Believing data should be both transparent and democratized, Ville is looking to disrupt the way organizations relate to their employees and instantly get the feedback to the people who need it most, the frontline worker. Join us this week as we chat with Ville about the power of harnessing real-time feedback and how it can revolutionize the future of business and the customer experience.

    More Than the Game (with Jared Odrick)

    More Than the Game (with Jared Odrick)

    For Jared Odrick, life after professional football has been anything but boring. From world travel and speaking engagements to creative exploration and self-reflection, he didn’t get the memo that “retirement” means slowing down. But whether he’s clashing on the gladiatorial gridiron, writing his next opinion piece, or hashing out the intricacies of faith with a group of Orthodox priests, Jared is always pushing back against a world (and a game) that preaches conformity, using his distinct perspective to humanize the way we think about our athletes. Join us for this week’s episode with Jared Odrick, as we examine life after sports, controlling your own story, and our profound misunderstanding of the modern athlete.

Super Interesting and Compelling

Every episode has made me look at part of the world in a different way. Shawn’s meaningful yet poignant interview style is somehow matched by the guests he has chosen to share their stories and experiences. There are so many things to learn and appreciate from his guests who are willing to share their amazing journeys with us. On top of all of that, Shawn still finds a way to add enough humor to make some of the heavier topics easier to carry. 5 Stars!
