No Need For Sight When You Have A Vision: What Blindness Teaches Us About Leadership (Part 1)

My guest today is an exceptional leader who teaches people to see. He believes that there is no need for sight when you have a vision. His story is incredible and there is so much to learn from him. Lex Gillette is an amazing champion. He is the best totally blind long and triple jumper in the history of the U.S. Paralympic movement. He is the current world record holder in the long jump, a five-time Paralympic medalist, a four-time long jump world champion, and an 18-time national champion. He is the only totally blind athlete to ever eclipse the 22-foot barrier in the long jump.

I believe that as a leader, there is a lot we can learn from the experience of blind persons when it comes to leading at times when we have little or no visibility. His unique story led Lex to coin the phrase NO NEED FOR SIGHT WHEN YOU HAVE A VISION®. In this interview you'll learn from his wisdom and be inspired.
