Love these

I absolutely love all the wisdom of John Maxwell a must for all leaders

Inspirational and relatable

I am a nurse in health care, Australia.
These podcasts are so helpful and applicable to my role and have made me reflect on the issues in our workplace and finally see a way ‘out of them’- lots of work, lots of transformation for individuals, but hopefully others find this work as inspiring and reflective as me

Encouraged

I’m a young student pastor here in Australia trying to grow as a leader. A friend recommended John Maxwell and I’ve been reading he’s books like a madman ever since. Unfortunately, I don’t always have the time..

But now I’ve stumbled on this podcast after typing in ‘leadership’ in the search bar. I’ve scrolled down to listen to the first few episodes and I’m so excited to learn about the diversified content of this podcast. You can bet I’ll be tuning in everywhere I go!

Praise God for the work you guys are doing.
