Refreshing and Educational!

I just started listening to this podcast a few weeks ago and I’m really enjoying it. As a newer leader in my organization, I find the real-life examples and advice very helpful as I grow and define myself and my leadership style. The guests are truly inspiring and Heather is a great host. Highly recommend.
