In this episode, I sit with Edgar Butler Jr. Edgar is a seasoned leader with a background in the insurance industry. Edgar is also a leadership and employee development coach and author of Clarify, Construct, and Control Your Career. We discuss Edgar’s early days that shaped and molded his leadership style with great tips and a framework for leading your people.


  • Manage process. Lead people
  • Help your teams by putting them in the best position to create success for themselves while achieving company goals
  • Your team, individually, wants to know you care about them
  • The words you use with your team, and about your team, really do matter so choose wisely
  • We’re pouring (ourselves) into individuals because we want to understand who they are as people
  • We’re pulling the ‘greater’ out of people especially when they may not be hitting the mark
  • We’re pushing because we see the potential in them to go on and become successful
