Values

Authenticity

From star athletes and CEOs to the role players needed in every organization, Joel's purpose is to tell everyone's story in a genuine way.

Work Ethic

Life will throw anyone curve balls, but Joel believes in controlling the controllable, always doing the little things and working hard.

People

Teams in sports, business or any profession function best when leaders focus on their people. 

Purpose

Why do we do what we do? Finding passion and a reason for doing the little things can unlock big results.

Joel always sees the glass as half full, if not overflowing, and knows energy-givers help provide the ingredients to any success story. 

Joel’s Story

The Man Behind the Microphone

Joel Goldberg broke into the sports broadcasting scene by knocking on the doors of television stations, cold calling broadcast executives and handing out resume tapes in the 1990s.

His career was never handed to him, but rather was a product of building connection, mixed with hard work and dedication from a young age. Joel has worked in four markets during a 25+ year career, covering two World Series Championship teams and thousands of baseball games—not to mention multiple Super Bowls, NHL playoffs and NCAA March Madness basketball games.

He has had the pleasure of interviewing countless athletes, Hall of Famers and celebrities while traveling the world, telling stories from famous stars to under-the-radar role players.

His longtime job of covering the Kansas City Royals as a host and reporter is a privilege, enabling him to entertain, inform and connect athletes with fans. Through his years of storytelling and watching championship organizations succeed (and fail), he realized his access to methods executives use to build culture and championship teams translated to the corporate  world.

Topics like trust, communication, purpose, persistence and mentorship apply to the world of sports, business and life. Joel weaves them all together through his locker room experiences. Plus, he keeps tabs on the business world through numerous conversations with business leaders on his podcast.
