Leaders Drink Last

Brock Yordy and Jake Fletcher

Do you like your job? Do you believe in the companies vision? What type of leader do you want to be? If you just answered "Yes" - "Sometimes" - " The type that doesn't suck," Then join Jake and Brock on Leaders Drink Last Podcast, where we will discuss experiences on construction projects around the world, new and old leadership styles, failures, quitting jobs, coaches, mentors, building teams, trust, empathy, life, and beer. Ironically when you start to feel like you are making an impact, happy hour continues to push back late into the evening. Author/Leader Brock Yordy: "As leaders, we have to recognize what our teams require to be successful. A new hire in their early 20s may have few life experiences to pull from to overcome situations with lousy vision or no vision at all. We must dig deeper to know our team beyond the skills required to do the job." www.driller.com "How to be the Leader." Author/ Captain Jacob Fletcher: " Adaptive leadership is a matter of humility. It is the act of “we” not “me.” It demonstrates the importance of each person and figures out how to bring out the best from them. In the ROTC, they taught us the phrase “mission first, people always.” I find many leaders have forgotten the second piece of that phrase. You cannot complete a mission, whether winning a baseball game or drilling water well, without people. A leader people cannot trust cannot expect those people to follow. Of course, there are other ways to earn trust, but for me, adaptiveness is my bread and butter. I challenge you to give it a shot. www.driller.com "Add Adaptive Leadership to their Toolbox."
