Today’s guest is Billy Taylor.  Billy is a retired executive from Goodyear and is now the CEO of his own firm LinkedXL. Since joining Goodyear in 1989, Billy has progressed through a series of leadership positions. He has served as a plant director for both union and non-union facilities, leading lean transformations in Goodyear’s largest and most complex tire-producing sites.

Today Billy and I will talk about a wide range of topics including how leaders set the standard by what they accept,  How to build a culture of engagement, and how to develop the technical and personal competencies to challenge the process.
