About This Show
This podcast exists for two reasons:
1.) To add Value to You by Learning from those Ahead of Us – When I was 18 years old, I interned at a local church. My mentor encouraged me to take out a high level leader each month and ask them questions. I followed through on that and it was extremely beneficial. After 8 years of doing this, I started to feel selfish. I thought to myself, “I get to spend time with all of these great leaders and learn from them. Why don’t I record these interviews and turn them into a podcast for young leaders to listen to?” Shortly after that I started this podcast.
2.) To Add Value to You by Teaching You What I have Learned about Leadership – That same mentor handed me a leadership lesson on cd by John Maxwell. After listening to it, I was blown away. I called my mentor and asked him for every leadership lesson he had! That was the start of my obsession with personal growth. Since then, I have benefited greatly from leadership resources. Because of this, I have always endeavored to create my own resources to add value to others. As a result of that, I put a personal monthly leadership lesson on this podcast.

Hurdle has led the Pirates to the postseason in three consecutive seasons, joining Fred Clarke (1901-1903) and Jim Leyland (1990-1992) as the only managers in club history to do so. Under Hurdle's guidance, the Pirates posted the second-best record in the Major Leagues in 2015 (98-64) and the best mark overall from May 9 thru the end of the season (85-48, .639).
