Joining me for episode #172 is Jerry Bussell, previously a guest on episode #137. Today, we’re talking about his recent book, Anatomy of a Lean Leader. I just saw Jerry talk about the book yesterday at the AME spring conference here in San Antonio.
Jerry talks about how he defines a “Lean leader” and why President Abraham Lincoln fits into that description. He’ll talk about some of the modern CEOs he would put on the list of great Lean leaders, including the owner of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars. Visit the website for Jerry’s book here.
