Do you care about the environment but feel "I want to act but if no one else does it won't make a difference" and "But if you don't solve everything it isn't worth doing anything"?
We are the antidote! You're not alone. Hearing role models overcome the same feelings to enjoy acting on their values creates meaning, purpose, community, and emotional reward.
Want to improve as a leader? Bestselling author, leadership speaker, coach, and professor Joshua Spodek, PhD MBA, brings joy and inspiration to acting on the environment. You'll learn to lead without relying on authority.
We bring you leaders from many areas -- business, politics, sports, arts, education, and more -- to share their expertise for you to learn from. We then ask them to share and act on their environmental values. That's leadership without authority -- so they act for their reasons, not out of guilt, blame, doom, gloom, or someone telling them what to do.
Guests include
Dan Pink, 40+ million Ted talk viewsMarshall Goldsmith, #1 ranked leadership guru and authorFrances Hesselbein, Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree, former CEO of the Girl ScoutsElizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize winning authorDavid Allen, author of Getting Things DoneKen Blanchard, author, The One Minute ManagerVincent Stanley, Director of PatagoniaDorie Clark, bestselling authorBryan Braman, Super Bowl champion Philadelphia EagleJohn Lee Dumas, top entrepreneurial podcasterAlisa Cohn, top 100 speaker and coachDavid Biello, Science curator for TED

Love the Challenges

The only podcast I've listened to that makes you think about what you can do to improve yourself and of course contribute to the environment in some way. Joshua has great guests that are very interesting and offer useful and pratical info on various topics. Would definitely recommend.

Entertaining and informative

It's really great to see Josh pracitcing what we teaches in his classes and his book, and enouraging other leaders - and listeners - to do the same and keeping them accountable!

The podcast is great as it feels like I am listening to an authentic conversation between leaders who are willing to make changes for the environment.

Insightful and inspiring

Josh’s podcast is a great idea for leaders (as well as for all of us) to do something—personally--to benefit the environment. The guests are wonderful people and true experts in their fields, but what I like the most is that the interview portrays them as normal, everyday people who are willing to do something for the environment, each in their own way. Can’t wait to hear the second part of each guest, when they come back with their results!
