Welcome back to The Executive Book Club podcast! We resume our shows with a book that's equal parts memoir, history, and prescription for finally confronting America's most painful legacy - race. As author Mitch Landrieu asserts, this is a passionate, personal, and urgent book for all Americans to help advance the conversation in our organizations and communities.

In this episode, I focus on one key insight from the book. As leaders, we're often called upon to lead in times of crisis and disaster. But can our life and legacy hold more than being the go-to person in an emergency? What do we do to step away from those day-to-day threats, and how do we heed the call to do something long-lasting and worthwhile? Listen to this episode for answers.
