Leading with Understanding with JeVon McCormick

Author, speaker, and president and CEO of Scribe Media JeVon McCormick endured racism and poverty growing up. This week, he tells On Your Terms host Erin King about the painful realities of editing and reclaiming his identity as a mixed-race man, and how to ask the hard questions, listen to the answers and work to understand others.

As a leader himself, McCormick has several grievances with the current state of leadership as a whole. From putting down the playbook to treating employees like people to finding a consistent definition for diversity, King and McCormick discuss all that could—and should—change within companies. McCormick continues on to discuss his life philosophies, how he divides his attention in both his work and private life, and everything the having of privilege entails.
