The Mindset of a Leadership Explorer with Don Schmincke

As a best-selling author, Don trains 700 CEOs annually, and can be found sharing his unique methods at keynote speeches or implementing them with clients.  His scientific methods make him the thought-leader in applying genetics, evolution, and anthropology to strategic growth. The industry agrees, finding it a refreshing alternative to the trendy theories and "programs-of-the-month" that frustrate senior executives: - Acclaimed as a Top 10 speaker for the world’s largest CEO organization. - Author of best-selling books "The Code of the Executive" and “High Altitude Leadership” (with NBC Emmy-nominated climber Chris Warner). - Published in over 14 languages, - Featured by CNN, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and more than 60 industry publications annually. Today, Don flies 200K miles annually working with clients across every industry including healthcare, manufacturing, non-profits, distribution, technology, communications, finance, and insurance.  He occasionally can be found at universities inflicting his unconventional techniques on innocent graduate students!  Now, after working with over 7,000 CEOs, Don and the team have validated the protocols for success.  This is a fascinating podcast episode with Don on Leadership and Mindset. One not to be missed...
