What's going on over at JKWD and Better Humanhood these days?

JKWD Episode 147: Power of 3 Leadership with Steven Mays

Through both his military and civilian careers, Steven Mays ran into good leaders and bad leaders, and when he boiled it down, he realized that there were a few things the good leaders had that the bad leaders were missing.

He detailed these in this short book, Power of 3: Lessons in Leadership, and brings us those lessons today. Don't let the length of this podcast throw you — this was a wide-ranging conversation that just flew by. Enjoy!
