My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I went to see the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem movie. My mind wandered to “Oh great, another reboot… and the animation looks sloppy.”
Other than my love for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there wasn’t much desire to see this new film. Yet, I went because of Reel Leadership. I had to see the latest movie so I could share the leadership lessons found in the film.
