Welcome to Classic Rock Leadership

Rock on!

Welcome to the Classic Rock Leadership blog.  Author Brian Roberts combined two of his passions…classic rock music and serving as a Trusted Advisor to CEOs and business leaders.  He uses titles and lyrics of classic rock songs and weaves in a valuable business or leadership lesson including real world stories either he or his CEO clients have experienced.

Brian has also added a fun fact (or “riff” as he calls it), on the selected song and has also included a link to the band’s website, another to their Wikipedia page, and a third link with a YouTube video of the song for your listening pleasure.

So enjoy the tunes and the stories, and GET YOUR BUSINESS ROCKIN’!
