Episode in a Tweet: In some areas of our business, I will never be the master. And that’s okay. As long as I can retain and motivate the masters we have on staff, as long as I can empower those folks who are ninjas, we will be successful.
Background: I’ve known Jeremy Osterberger for almost a decade now as he is the President and COO of BIC Alliance. In fact, BIC Magazine, one of the major brands of BIC Alliance, was the first magazine to pick up my leadership articles. In this episode, Jeremy and I discuss how he learned to be a leader, starting as a young kid and working his way up the ranks at BIC. We share so many things in common, such as an affinity to self-leadership, developing and empowering others, and staying humble as we find success. The theme throughout the show is how life teaches you leadership lessons when you pause long enough to learn from them. Please have a listen and let me know what you think!
