Atheists Drink Dunkin Donuts (Leadership Thoughts)

I spend a bit of time working on projects at Starbucks. On top of that, my wife Michelle happens to be a Starbucks aficionado. That’s why I wasn’t surprised when one day as we were there together, Michelle told me the District Manager was sitting at one of the tables. My wife being the ever shy girl she is, walked over and began a conversation. As we talked, I realized that this woman had incredible leadership insights and was leading at a very high level. Her name is Tricia Lowder and she currently oversees eleven local stores (more on the way).

I invited Tricia to speak with our Creative Arts and Student Ministry teams at Central last week and we recorded it. We had some issues with the audio so the sound quality isn’t amazing, but the content of what Tricia shared with us is powerful. The first part of the video is my interview with Tricia and the second part is the Q&A when the team asked her questions. We talked Starbucks, Dutch Brothers, Dunkin Donuts, alcohol, atheists, and a few other things as well.
