My guest on today’s Podcast is Lon Langston, CEO of the Engaged Banker Experience.
Lon excelled in management and leadership at several companies and non-profits. In 2004, he started his own business, which he grew to $21 million in sales and eventually sold for 11 times EBITDA (eee-bit-da).
After selling his business, he served a 2-year term as Executive in Residence at Clayton State University. In 2010, Lon began studying behavioral science and added it to his understanding of management and leadership to create a unique coaching and consulting method.
He has helped clients in many industries achieve their goals, including serving as Chief People Officer for a bank holding company, which operates three community banks. Lon offers coaching and consulting to community banks with his Engaged Banker eXperience brand and to other businesses with his ThrooCode (through code) brand.
The proof is in the results. Lon’s clients say things like:
“I learned more working with Lon than anyone else, including professors throughout college and direct managers.”
“I am amazed at the breadth of material, but more, the depth to which Lon took us within each topic.”
“Possibly the biggest benefit is that people are so busy they forget to invest in themselves. Lon reminds them and shows them how.”
You will walk away from this podcast episode inspired, happy, and ready for more. Let’s listen in to my podcast discussion with Lon Langston.
