Some of the best leadership lessons I’ve learned have come from conversations I’ve had with sports legends like Ned Yost on the podcast (you can listen here as he talks about how to build a winning team culture). But there’s nothing like learning alongside a friend. That’s why I’m glad to have Brad Williams back for this episode of Leading Simple. Join us as we sit down to talk about the lessons on leadership we’ve picked up on throughout the summer, our hopes for the Lakers, and why magnifying the positive is crucial for any leader.
