The 50 Essential Oklahoma Reads list is live! Head to to get your copy today. Let the reading (and debating?) begin!

My guest for Chapter 26 is Kevin DeShazo. Kevin is a speaker, consultant, author, and podcaster whose single focus is on helping people get better. His primary work is in the leadership space, particularly with student athletes and college athletic departments. He's authored three books: iAthlete: Impacting Student-Athletes of a Digital Generation, Leadership Interrupted, and his latest - Keep Chopping Wood. In our conversation we talk about about his written work with some focus on his non-traditional approach to both writing and publishing. We also talk about the ideas of helping people get better and his work with student athletes and athletic leadership in the areas of social media and team culture.

You can connect with Kevin and his work across multiple media forms at
