ADVENTURE & Leadership (John Gronski)
Play • 32 min

Being a leader is an adventure. It opens us up to criticism but also gives us opportunities to serve others. John reminds us of the importance of creating more options in our lives and tells us how to do that. He shares the role of divine intervention and vulnerability in his own life.


John is a proven combat leader with over forty years’ service in the United States Army including active duty and in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. John is a leadership and peak performance expert, a motivational storyteller, and a much sought-after speaker and leadership seminar leader.  John is a thoughtful leader and he has a reputation as a servant leader.


The Ride of Our Lives is a true story of John Gronski’s bicycle ride across the United States with his wife, Berti, and fifteen-month-old son, Stephen. In the 3-month adventure the Gronski family experience trials, triumphs, and learning lessons. They discovered incredible people from Tacoma Washington to Scranton Pennsylvania. They faced wind, rain, traffic, and an angry bull.  They never gave up. The book is a powerful reminder that neither should you.
