My wife and I are raving fans of Dave Ramsey, Chris LoCurto, and their team. As a teaching organization, they communicate their lessons about financial peace, leadership, and business development with clarity, passion and energy. After listening to one of their Entreleadership lessons, I always feel I have a few ideas that I can use in my family and team today.
So, why should you care about Entreleadership? I believe that leadership and education are highly correlated crafts. John Maxwell in his book “Developing the Leader in You” has a great quote: “The growth and development of people is the highest calling of a leader.” A great deal of the book talks about creating great teams. It would appear that educators and business leaders must both have the “heart of a teacher.”
Here are my seven favorite Entreleadership podcasts. They have been life changing for me. I hope they kickstart your leadership and teaching for 2016.
