On this month’s show, we talk about leadership. And where better to go for that than the head of the organization – the Sovereign Grand Commander himself.
A native of Baton Rouge, LA, Ronald A. Seale has served for 7 years as the 18th Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry for the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States, the mother supreme council of the World. Not a bad title.
But he’ll be the first to quickly add that he tied his plain white lambskin apron on just like you did, and that he stands no higher than any other Master Mason in his Lodge. And admittedly, it’s corny, until you get to know him and you realize he’s not just saying that – but that he truly and deeply believes it.
I recently sat down a talked with him about his leadership style, where he learned it from, his tolerance for leaf blowers, and what he hopes to accomplish in the future and be remembered for.
This is one of the best interviews I've heard. For the first time, I know what the job of the SGC really is. To listen to Brother Ron talk all day long. I truly believe that every new Brother should here Brother Ron talk about gathering around the alter, how to act, meet, part, and throwing out the titles and working for the good of the craft. Awesome job Jason, keep up the good work with these podcasts!!!
