Our mission at LifeLabs Learning is to help people master life’s most useful skills — and since we spend half of our lives at work, we like to think of the workplace as a practice lab for these skills. In this season's final episode, LifeLabs Learning Co-CEOs LeeAnn Renninger and Tania Luna share LifeLabs' origin story, and how we’ve navigated the extraordinary changes the last two years presented, all while growing the business, supporting other organizations, and distilling what we’ve learned into our new book: The Leader Lab: CORE Skills to Become a Great Manager, Faster.
