Wolfey Tea cup ,

I have gained a deeper understanding of Conscious Leadership!

I’ve just listened to the episode with Marika about Conscious Leadership. I very much enjoyed the flow of the conversation and Marika’s approach to the topic was so eloquent. Thank you Andy and Marika for offering such a fresh perspective on leadership!
I feel enlightened, challenged, and inspired.

David-Savage ,

So refreshingly real…

Just listened to a conversation on Resilience and Drive. I really loved the down to earth questions and space for honesty and humility. None of this stuff is easy but that doesn’t mean we can use this as an excuse to give up and go home. Was inspiring to hear how patience and perseverance really do work! Cheers Andy for diving into these essentially important topics.

laubm94 ,

Superb for leaders

This is an excellent, relevant, current, and inspiring podcast for leaders, CEOs, and HRDs looking to build performing and happy employees. Andy is knowledgeable and engaging to listen to.
