Episode 9

Xavier Williams, who played college basketball at Edinboro University, was with AT&T for 30 years. Today he serves as CEO of American Virtual Cloud Technologies and leads with the motto: “Culture trumps strategy.” In this episode, you will get a behind the scenes look into how Xavier took one of the country’s lowest-ranking AT&T branches, and turned it into the fourth-best within two and half years, without changing a single team member. Xavier reveals steps you can implement today to spur growth and camaraderie. Doing the work from 8 to 5 is expected, but it takes a true Corporate Competitor to prepare and expand your knowledge from 5 to 8. Leaders are learners, and Xavier Williams is the perfect example.

You will learn:

  •  4:00   Why culture trumps strategy when you’re trying to build a winning team.
  •  8:30   How competing against teammates can make you better.
  • 12:00  The importance of balanced leadership.
