Welcome to Episode 30 of Leadership On Tap | Talking Leadership Development & Reviewing Great Beer! In 2016 we have some exciting episodes in store and are changing things up a bit from time to time.  We will feature a few “solo” episodes throughout the year where one of of us (Tristan or Mike) will briefly cover a specific topic and provide an immense amount of valuable content in a very short period of time. In this episode Mike discusses the value of creating a personal learning plan, and how to get started with yours for 2016! So grab a brew (or a cup of coffee if your driving), sit back and enjoy the show!

Beer Reviews

This week I tasted a phenomenal IPA from Fremont Brewery out of Seattle, WA.  I drank the 77 Fremont Select IPA and it was delicious!  I rated it at 4.5 out of 5 starts.  If you can get your hands on some, do yourself a favor and do so ASAP.  Cheers!
