Podcast: Clark Hunt, CEO of the Kansas City Chiefs, on 'Leading the Way'

We're thrilled to introduce the new weekly podcast series Leading the Way, which will highlight influential business leaders and key insights from i4cp. Hosted by Emmy-award winning radio host Scott Murray and i4cp's Angel Carlton, the show will feature interviews with respected business leaders, from restaurateur Phil Romano to "Shark Tank" investor Mark Cuban.

Our first guest is Clark Hunt, CEO and chairman of the Kansas City Chiefs. Hunt discusses the challenges of working in the world of professional sports, tackling topics such as culture, transparency, and essential leadership traits.

Key soundbites

  • On making tough decisions... "Approach them from a position of integrity, and trying to treat our employees and customers the best we can."
  • On transparency... "Transparency is more important today than it has ever been. Your employees need to be a part of the decision making process."
  • On corporate culture... "You're not going to be successful unless you have the best people and you empower them to use the skills they have. I find this works on the sports side and the business side."
  • On leadership... "People don't want an autocratic leader they want somebody who is inclusive."

Next show: Phil Romano

On the next show, Scott and Angel will interview Phil Romano, world-renowned restaurateur and entrepreneur. The show airs live each Sunday at 4pm CT on KLIF 570 in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and will debut on the i4cp website the following week.
