Awesome Andrea ,

#1 Best

I am a voracious consumer of podcasts and audiobooks. This is by far one of the best. The variety and caliber of guests is great. The content is well put together, easily digested and relevant to so many aspects of leadership. I can’t recommend this podcast enough.

Important topics

I listened to Brian‘s episode about diversity and inclusion and I really loved how he addressed this topic even though it can be uncomfortable and scary to talk about something where you want to make sure you’re using all the right words. I highly recommend listening to this podcast if you want to learn about important leadership topics not just the fluff!

Brandi22 ,

Fantastic Content!

As a host, Brian clearly makes his guests feel instantly at easy and drives the conversations in interesting directions. Every episode contains so many wonderful ideas and pieces of advice. This is absolutely worth being part of your regular podcast playlist.
