Work Hard and Be Nice to People

How does a boy from Canton, Ohio, go to Asia to lead teams delivering revenues of US$1mn, while ensuring that his people know he has their back and that each day they leave work knowing it was about more than the bottom line? 


In this first episode, Kevin Withane, talks with Brian Kaiser about:

  • Growing up in Canton, Ohio
  • How Peyton Manning influenced his leadership style
  • Why he moved to Asia
  • How he delivers more than the bottom line
  • Failure
  • Trust
  • 3 tips for future and young leaders


Although not in the interview:  Brian shared that when he drinks, his choice is for a drink is Bud Light – not quite a cocktail – or so you thought…..the cocktail for this episode is: the Dilly Dilly Drink.  You can find the recipe on the blog and photos on Instagram.
