212 — Adam Braun

Podcast Summary:

Adam Braun may be best known for his New York Times Bestselling Book, “The Promise of a Pencil,” and the incredible organization he and his team created, Pencils of Promise, where hundreds of schools were built around the world.

What you may not know is that Adam has set out on another mission with the similar theme of democratizing education. With his wife as an inspiration, Adam and his Co-founder have assembled an incredible team that hopes to reduce the burden of college debt and empower a new generation of men and women with an education built for the 21st Century.

In this interview, Adam and I talk about his continuing journey from Founder to CEO:

  • how he is attempting to change education with MissionU
  • how he approaches leading a very different type of organization
  • how he has learned to trust a team of experts
  • what he learned about himself during his most recent 360 degree feedback leadership evaluation and how this information is helping him scale MissionU
