Lead, Love and Communicate with Justin Patton

It's said that one of the most devastating things a person can say about another (or yourself) is that he or she failed to live up to their...potential. You're about to meet keynote speaker, executive coach and author Justin Patton who understands what it's like to misunderstand potential but better yet...how to  regroup and come back as a leader who isn't afraid to communicate with honesty and love with passion. I sat down with Justin for this wide ranging conversation when he appeared at the Central Iowa Business Conference in May of 2022. This is some, seriously, good stuff!

Meet Jack Stack: businessman, author, keynote speaker who, in the next several minutes, will share with you how you can build a thriving business by getting everybody on board...and it's not done by holding hands and singing Kumbaya.

And, it not only can help businesses but also families and that, he says, will cure so many of our nation's ills. Strap in for Jack Stack.

From Bust to Trust Meet Kylie Gottschalk - Tero International

Over the past fifteen years I have had the opportunity to interview thousands of business people. Every so often we come up on an unexpected story line and the interview just clicks.  This is one of those times. Before I met Kylie Gottschalk I assumed we would talk about her new role as a Tero Trainer but the more I heard, the story evolved. This turned into a lesson on how important it is for a company to really tune into the possibilities you're hearing in that interview process. Something Tero International did and the result is amazing.
