The natural evolution of the book, The Practical Optimist, TurningPoint Founder & President, Ken Schmitt, hosts guests for real conversations about the intersection of leadership and life in his new podcast.
Most leaders come to recognize that their professional and personal lives strongly influence one another – and it’s nearly impossible to be successful in one without the other. Sitting down to speak with highly respected leaders provides a platform for them to share their experiences and insights, both professional and personal, as they navigate the intersection of leadership and life. There’s much to be learned from the good the bad, and the ‘what was I thinking’ moments in these leaders’ lives. This isn’t theoretical advice. It’s straight talk from leaders who are willing to be vulnerable, as they discuss their life’s journey.
The Practical Optimist: An Entrepreneurial Journey through Life’s Turning Points uses Ken Schmitt’s own experiences as an entrepreneur, husband, father, and son to explore well-known leadership topics and explode the myths around them. It is an illuminating and instructive dive into the intersection of leadership and life.
The Podcast can be found on all the major streaming services, including Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Spotify, and more.
