Scott Edinger stops by the Business LockerRoom to discuss his brand new book, The Hidden Leader: Discover and Develop Greatness Within Your Company. Tune in to hear Scott discuss how to identify and develop powerhouse leaders! Also joining me in the LockerRoom is veteran sportscaster and author of Talk Sporty to Me, Jen Mueller. She will talk about how she uses sports fandom and sports conversations to improve communications and build business!
Companies with great leadership have a built-in competitive advantage. The problem? Most companies simply promote their best performers to leadership without any criteria other than the results they produce. Scott will provide a lot of insight to the leadership that exists within a company that often goes unnoticed! Lots of people talk about leadership — in this episode, we get real!!
And in the Business LockerRoom, we gotta love someone who touts “sports conversations” as a way to drive business!! Can’t wait to talk to Jen — SPORTS BROADCASTER, SIDELINE REPORTER, and someone who learned how to communicate by interviewing top athletes and coaches. It’s gonna be awesome!
