Looking to learn more about leadership to build a better team or advance your own career?

Going through work challenges and want to know how top executives resolved similar situations?

The Leadership Playbook podcast asks top executives from the business world’s most recognizable brands and companies about the stories behind their success, their leadership secrets, and the biggest obstacles they’ve faced and overcome.

Candid, often humorous, and always inspiring, think of The Leadership Playbook as a mini-MBA on how to become the best leader you could ever be.

The show consists of six 45-minute to one-hour episodes per season, one in Fall and the other in Spring. Three episodes are interviews with business leaders hosted by Joseph M.

Past speakers include former Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz, Costco co-founder Jim Sinegal, former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, and more.
