Cory Booker is one of those most compelling and dynamic voices in American politics: the former mayor of Newark, New Jersey, the subject of the 2005 documentary “Street Fight” that chronicles his initial 2002 bid for mayor, and he’s particularly engaged on the topic of education reform - a subject that’s near and dear to my own heart. He’s also an incredibly candid and open personality who’s willing to share many things that those in his position typically haven’t - which is not only refreshing but ultimately makes him that much more effective as a leader.
Today on the podcast,
* Sen Booker is incredibly good at getting eyeballs on the causes he advocates for, and he gets into the tactics he uses
* He talks very openly about the times he’s fallen short and even outright failed - and how we turned those into valuable learning experiences.
* The techniques Sen Booker he uses to take control during those inevitable moments where we get overwhelmed and feel our emotions getting away from us
