#137 - 1% Better Leadership (with Andy Ellis)

Imagine if you could get 1% better every day at something and do this for an entire year. Well, that's 365 days. And you go, okay, fine. 1%. 1%. That's going to be like 3.65%, right? No, because it compounds. And if you go ahead and open up your calculator and you take 1.01 and you raise it to the 365th power you're going to get 37.78. On today's show we have Andy Ellis discuss ways to get 1% better as a leader.
