Hi, we’re Laura and Jonathan, unorthodox leadership coaches.

We are so so so bored with the same old conversations about what it takes to be a great leader. They have gotten us to where we are, but won’t take us to where we need to go.

Join us as we explore two riddles we’re absolutely obsessed with: “what the HECK is leadership?” and “what does it take to BE a highly effective leader?” In our attempts to revisit and answer those questions, we will detail tools, tips and topics all in the name of bridging The Leadership Gap.

This is not just another leadership podcast.

Actionable takeaways

This is a fantastic podcast - Jon is a great interviewer and clearly very passionate about helping people better express themselves with each other. After each podcast I find that I immediately have new communication skills that impact my day-to-day life. I recommend this podcast to anyone who is looking to improve how they connect with other people. Thanks Jon.
