Tall poppy's Leadership conversations
Tathra gets interesting guests to take different angles on leadership and their personal experience in response to her thoughtful questions. Tathra and guests have made me think more about my own personal development and I've spent time looking up some of their work and references after listening.
Each podcast episode becomes an opportunity for professional development. Rich listening here for leaders and those stepping into leadership without formal authority. Highly recommended.
