How to spot talent and develop leaders with Dayton Moore

Last month, I was able to spend time at spring training providing leadership coaching for several major league baseball teams.

I had the opportunity to interview Dayton Moore, General Manager of the Kansas City Royals and asked him to share a few thought on how to develop talent in the next generation.
