Episode 17: Together is Better. Leadership and Sports Talk w/Patrick Godfrey
On this episode of the View 112 Podcast I interview a colleague I admire, Patrick Godfrey. Patrick is one of the most inspiring leaders I know. His work ethic and integrity are unmatched. Last year, during my 112 Books reading challenge, Patrick gifted me a very special book, Together is Better by Simon Sinek. I was touched by such a thoughtful and insightful gesture. Patrick gave me this book right at the start of a new professional journey. I read a few of these (my favorite) quotes from the book to Patrick and we had quite a fun chat:
“Leadership is an education. And the best leaders think of themlseves as the students, not the teachers” p.89
“If the challenge doesn’t scare us, then it’s probably not important” p.45
“The opportunity is not to discover the perfect company for ourselves. The opportunity is to build the perfect company for each other” p.80
"Fulfillment is not born of the dream. Fulfillment is born of the journey" p.91.
"Don’t complain, contribute" p.4
Patrick hails from the state of Ohio is all about Ohio sports. For part 2 of this episode, Patrick and I (with a few friends) head over to The Big Board in Washington, DC and watch Game 1 of the NBA Finals. We talk LeBron and I get Patrick's NBA Finals prediction.
This one was fun! Thanks so much Patrick for being on the View 112 Podcast.
