Podcast Episode 69 - "One Million Followers Wasn’t in My Obituary" with Sanyin Siang of The Coach K Center on Leadership and Ethics

We are so excited to get to share today’s interview with Sanyin Siang. She is the executive director of The Coach K Center on Leadership and Ethics, and in addition to sharing what makes Coach K such an excellent coach and leader (hint: it has to do with enabling greatness instead of chasing it), she also told us why having 1 million followers on LinkedIn isn’t the thing she wants to be remembered for. It was so encouraging to hear her share how her identity and value is found first and foremost in what God says is true of her—that she is a beloved child of God. We think her energy and passion is contagious and hope you get a chance to listen in!
