Interview with Tom Baker (Video)

I am starting something new called, “Learning to Lead”. It will consist only monthly video interviews with leaders and monthly podcasts, although I am not sure when the podcasts will begin. I hope that they will add value to your life!

Here is my interview with Tom, I hope it adds value to your life. After you watch it, I encourage you to connect with Tom and what he’s doing. Buy his book! You won’t regret it!

My first video interview is with my friend, Tom Baker. I met Tom earlier this year at an event Light of Life put on in which Tom was a nominee for a service award we were giving away. Tom is the VP of Programs for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh. He is also the founder of Baker Leadership, which he talks about in our interview.

From the moment I met Tom, I realized he is a natural leader and is someone that I need to get around and learn from. I took him to lunch and hammered him with questions. I learned a lot. He gave me a copy of his book: “Get Involved“, which I read and highly recommend in my review of the book here. The book’s tagline is “Making the most of your 20’s and 30’s.” It’s excellent.

I interviewed Tom and asked him the following questions:

  • Tell us about yourself, your background, and what you have coming up.
  • Tell us about your book “Get Involved”. What are one or two nuggets from the book that you could share with us?
  • What advice would you give to first time authors?
  • For someone who feels the urge to get involved with something, but doesn’t know where to start, what would you tell them?
  • For young leaders already involved in something, but looking to go to the next level, what advice would you give them?
  • How can people connect with you and what you’re doing in the City of Pittbsurgh through Baker Leadership and Big Brothers Big Sisters?
  • Any other piece of advice?
