Today we spoke with Ken King – Talent developer, leader, entrepreneur and CEO of Boost Innovation
Ken has moved from coaching basketball to being a leader of a large international organisation that focuses on on-going learning, resiliency and culture analytics with Boost Institute. Check out the fundamental learning skills according to Boost such as culture, feedback and communication controllables and all the other fantastic work that they are doing.
In this episode we hear about the origin story of Boost, the dragonfly - and family and corporate values...and Ken's leadership journey. Ken talks about quality and scalability and that challenging balance; he also shares his experience from the prestigious altMBA course run by Seth Godin.
Ken sheds light on the values of his company and how they haven't really changed - despite significant innovation, product diversity, service offering progressions and increased company size. We really admire that! Here's a story of a full time coach in basketball at 23 - who took the plunge to become a full-fledged entrepreneur, and is succeeding and inspiring many.
Thanks for joining us Ken!
