Dayton Moore, the General Manager for the Kansas City Royals, joins me on Dose of Leadership.
He knows a thing or two about how to build winning cultures, leadership and how to be heroic both professionally & personally.
Dayton Moore marks his 14th full season with the Kansas City Royals in 2020.
A native of Wichita, Kansas, he brought an impressive resume to the Royals in 2006, having previously worked for the Atlanta Braves’ organization during their run of 14-straight division titles.
After joining the Royals in 2006, Moore set out to bring a World Championship back to Kansas City, a dream that was brought to fruition in 2015 when the Royals bested the New York Mets in five games to win the franchise’s first World Series championship in 30 years. A leader in the Kansas City community, Moore is also a regular speaker at numerous community events each year. In 2013, Moore started the “C” You In the Major Leagues Foundation, which provides hope and support to children and families by using youth baseball to develop future character-driven leaders.
Following the 2014 season, Moore wrote a book, “More Than a Season” (updated in 2016), with all of the author proceeds going to “C” You In the Major Leagues.
