Great insights, great guests!
I listened to the recent episode with Jerry Sachs and it had some great insights into how to make an impact in your community through leadership efforts. This episode is so applicable to a wide audience! As a small business owner who puts an emphasis on community service and regularly giving back, this episode gave me ideas on how to implement some of the best practices mentioned to make an impact past monetary donations to specific organizations. Mahan did a great job personalizing Jerry’s experiences and expertise as a leader to be applicable for listeners - a true testament to his hosting.

Relevance that Resonates!
Mahan has that special sauce, you know the one that makes a good thing even better?! I loved his interview with Shannon Huffman Polson so much, I listened to it twice. It’s important to interview leaders who have insights to share, but you must also engage your audience with different viewpoints. Mahan is an active listener and with his ability to quickly identify the critical “nugget” in a segment-he drives home the value of each conversation and of this leadership podcast. Shannon’s conversation on her new book, “The Grit Factor “ is about a powerful women leading through adversity. Added bonus during COVID and this interview is that Mahan gave his two teenage daughters a chance to ask Shannon a question. What a great opportunity for young women and all people to engage with a role model!
