Description

This podcast is for individuals who are ready to engage their heart, mind and soul in growing themselves and others to:Think positively, Live healthy, Build faith, Read more, Stay strong, Work hard, Network well, Worry less, Love always… AND Lead Uncommonly! In a fun interview format I will be engaging leaders from various walks of life who have a great story to tell and experience or have experienced similar challenges that we face every day. We will banter about relevant topics in Leadership through fun conversation and dialogue. We will examine current subjects and events and introduce simple, yet impactful steps you can take to make a difference… all in less than the time of your commute, your lunch, your workout or your walk to 10,000 steps a day! I might even sneak in some solo podcasts on those topics that I encounter with my coaching and consulting clients.
