What I love about the Center Agile Leadership Podcast and Rikki Schwartz is their willingness to go deep into the topic and what it takes to really create change. So many podcasts and hosts bounce around the surface, but Rikki uses her questions to take the guests and the listeners to a whole other level of self-reflection and actionable ideas.
Stunned at how fun
I'm not even the leader of any kind of team, yet I look forward gleefully to this podcast because of how fun Rikki makes it, and the lessons that apply to general human interaction. If the world ever gets strange enough that I'm in charge of a group of people, I'll probably do it better because I listened to this podcast. Thanks, Rikki et al!
Learned a lot about leadership!
It was awesome to hear Brian's journey launching the Agile Leadership movement. Getting the knowledge straight form the founder was refreshing and exciting.
I think he has a ton of insights that we all can benefit from. Would recommend to anyone trying to learn more about Agile Leadership.
