AGL 277: The Art of Caring with Phillip Kane

About Phillip

In his day job, Phillip Kane is a husband, father, and caring leader.  He has had a successful business career of more than 30 years in some of the world’s best-known corporations.  Working for brands like Goodyear, Pirelli, Rothschild, and NAPA, Kane has had the privilege to lead thousands of individuals and has managed billions of dollars in value for stakeholders.  Consistently recognized by the leaders of these organizations for excellence, Kane though credits any personal success to those he has led and who have made each win possible.

Born in Detroit, the grandson of an International Harvester (now Navistar) truck dealer, Kane has spent a lifetime in and around cars and trucks.  An Eagle Scout, Kane has been serving others since he was a young boy.  Crediting his father and a Nigerian priest with almost every good thing he has learned about life, leadership, business and the art of storytelling, Kane uses stories each Friday to help business associates relate to key issues facing the organizations he has the privilege to lead. These weekly letters have less to do with what is going on in the business than how people think about what is going on in the business. Kane has been recognized twice by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, authors of The Leadership Challenge, for the impact of his storytelling on teams. By helping shift and align his teams’ point of view, Kane and the teams he leads are able to accomplish more and win more often. Much because of the stories he tells. Many of them are assembled in one place for the first time – in his book, The Not So Subtle Art of Caring.

A2 Hosting

A2 HostingI’ve been using A2 Hosting for several years.  They offer state of the art SSD hosting for all of their plans.  Their sites are super fast and easy to setup.  I rarely need support, but when I was migrating my sites to a larger plan I used their support services and they were phenomenal.  I highly recommend A2 hosting for all of your hosting needs.  And I also recommend everyone to have a personal website. If you’re in technology and looking for a job and don’t have your own website, I probably wouldn’t hire you.  Just sayin’.
