Playing for the Championship

Alexa and Laura talk to media & marketing executive turned entrepreneur Ross Martin, Founder & CEO of Blackbird, on building business based on leadership, the relationship between a company’s operating and belief system, and his "free agency" version of betting on leaders now to shape the future. Hear Ross’ view on how leaders of the future will be identified by the portfolio of work they lead vs. job titles and predetermined roles they’ve filled (think: we need to build for the Championship vs. the MVP). Plus advice that framed his success (Thanks, Mom & Dad) and his #KillBuyDIY that has a restaurant recommendation included.  Come for the laughs, leave with a master class in modern leadership.
