As you men know by now, leadership lies at the core of what it means to be a man. We’ve all had great leaders. We’ve all had horrible leaders.
My guest today, David Burkus, talks with us about what it means to be a leader, how to align your vision with others, how to be more influential, and how to make an impact in the lives of those who matter most.

David Burkus is a someone I came across as I was looking for successful men to come on the show and, you’re going to hear in the podcast today, that I connected with someone who is incredibly qualified to speak with us on the subject of leadership.
He’s an author. He’s a podcaster. And, he’s also an associate professor of management at Oral Roberts University.
He wrote a book I really enjoyed titled, Under New Management, where he challenges the traditional vision of business management and proves they’re outdated and just don’t work. He gets into that a little in the show today.
He’s also a speaker. He’s worked Fortune 500 companies and the Naval Academy and contributes to Business Review and Inc.
Today he’s here to talk with us about management, leadership, and how to cast your vision and make an impact.

The Iron Council
This month, we’re talking all about time management inside our elite mastermind, The Iron Council. We’re covering efficiency, effectiveness, the tools, the strategies, and the resources to use your time to its maximum.
Each and every month we cover a completely new topic to help you take your life to the next level from communication to leadership – from time management to physical fitness. We cover it all inside the Iron Council and give you all the tools, insights, strategies, and resources to help you take your life to the next level.
You’ll have access to the other 200+ men inside the council – all on their own journey – and have the opportunity to learn from me and from them how you can be a better father, husband, business man, and leader.
If you’re interested in learning what we’re about, head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil where you can see our schedule, what’s included in the membership, and reach out with any questions you may have.
We hope to see you inside The Council.
