Tajh Boyd: Nobody Cleans Up After Clemson
Show Notes

When Tajh Boyd was the star quarterback at Clemson University he started a new tradition—cleaning movie theaters. Each week following the team's movie night, Tajh led the team in cleaning the entire theater rather than leaving a mess for the theater staff. Tajh saw it as a way to lead by example and build a winning culture around a simple philosophy—how you do one thing is how you do everything. In this conversation, Andrew talks with Tajh about leadership, how to create a winning culture, and uncovers lessons we can all apply to achieve big results by doing the little things the right way.
