Politics and Sports (20:37) Gregory Murray, Ph.D., is Executive Director of the Association for Politics and the Life Sciences and an Associate Professor of Political Science at Augusta University. Football and politics seem like they are worlds apart. One deals with a ball and teams and the other deals with the country and laws. But some say that football fanatics and politicians are not that different. Greg Murray explains how partisan politics and sports fandom are similar. Leading in the Moment (1:09:57) Judith Humphrey is the founder of The Humphrey Group, a premier leadership communications firm. She is a communications expert whose business teaches global clients how to communicate as confident, compelling leaders. One of the characteristics of great leaders is their ability to think on their feet and respond on the spot. They are able to inspire and influence in everyday situations, whether it be in the elevator, in the hallway, or in a meeting. Yet many of us are afraid to speak up in these situations. We are afraid of being judged, of being criticized, or of having nothing meaningful to say. Judith Humphrey shares her new book, Impromptu: Leading in the Moment, which explains how to think on our feet and respond eloquently to any situation.
