Sandee is launching her very own podcast called “The BLT and Tea Podcast”. A podcast where Business, Leadership and Technology intersect over a cup of Tea.

In the first episode of “The BLT and Tea” podcast, Sandee is joined by Rico Bryant. Rico is the recruitment manager of i.c.stars and an alumni of Cycle 34. He is joined by his tea host Destinie Warner from Cycle 40. We find out Rico’s leadership path in the oppression diagram (image shown bellow).

We also find out how he sees himself in reference to the famous question in the icstars galaxy of “Who are you? A proton, neutron or electron?” (image shown bellow)

Here is a brief description on the proton, neutron and electron:

A proton is someone who people think of as the positive one, very outgoing and the life of the party. The down side of the proton is that they are often found alone and feeling down because they look at people for their potential versus where they are in life.

The neutron is someone who balances the good and the bad, the neutron makes pros and cons list. The down side of the neutron is that they are often found in the dilemma of decision making because they are making pros and cons lists they wait too long to make a decision.

The electron is often looked at as the negative person, the one who looks at the glass as half empty. The electron however is a great risk assessor, finding out what could go wrong before it even happens and preventing failure.

About Sandee

Sandee Kastrul's photo
I believe that the definition of leadership is making opportunities for others. I am a leadership geek and find that the richest opportunities for all of our futures lie in education. I am a believer in reciprocity in education and that as educators we are both teacher and student. I believe that the world can be a classroom if we open ourselves to the notion that application, concatenation and liberation start with listening. Schedule Sandee to Speak
