JeVon McCormick has a success story for the ages. The son of an orphaned sex worker and a drug dealer, JeVon grew up poor in the 1970s without reliable access to food, water, and electricity. Experiencing an identity crisis and lack of belonging as a mixed-race person, he also faced long periods of abandonment and several stints in juvenile prison. Today, JeVon is not only a mentor to high-risk youth, but the CEO of Scribe, a publisher whose company culture has been ranked #1 in the United States. Named Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young, Jevon is also the best-selling author of Modern Leader, in parts memoir and outside-the-box business strategy. Jevon and David sit down to discuss personal definitions of success, the connections between possibility and responsibility, as well as the corporate world’s changing tides in regard to the leadership “playbook.”
