Cover art for Leadership Caffeine PodcastI truly love creating these shows. While Morely Safer and other great interviewers are secure in their jobs as I learn the challenging art of interviewing and strive to minimize my “uh’s,” the guests are fantastic!

Joining us for this episode is John Baldoni, one of the top leadership authors, bloggers, speakers and executive coaches in the world, and in my opinion, a genuinely nice guy! John is the author of 10 books on leadership and a regular citizen of the blogosphere, writing and posting on a number of channels including the HBR blogs.

We caught up towards the end of June and recorded a conversation that ranged far and wide on leadership, legacy and management.
