We use the 2017 movie "The Post" as a backdrop where Graham (played by Meryl Streep) wrestles with the complexities of taking a company public, testing the first amendment and proving she can lead with a Board that initially sees her as incapable. We talk about her growth as a leader, her courage, how her values came into play and how she processed an agonizing decision.

After years of working with professionals across the globe, Leslie Ehm, stumbled on a number of principles that she believes can help answer these questions. In this week's show, we talk about her new book, "Swagger - Unleash Everything You Are and Become Everything You Want."

Episode 76 - Hile Rutledge and Hoosiers
31:50In 1986, the film Hoosiers was released and told the story of a small high school in Indiana where the boys basketball team defies the odds with a new coach to make a run at the state title. It's the classic David & Goliath story and it's loosely based on a real high school in the mid-1950s. Hile and I use the movie to talk about how the coach led this small team (it only had 7 players) against state powerhouses, a town that wanted the coach to be fired and a star player who wasn't on the team. We talk about admitting mistakes, resilience, compassion and listening to the team.
