Leadership is a responsibility not a position…so what we need is more people with leadership skills and the capacity to have a voice of leadership when and where needed. We can learn a LOT about leadership from experienced leaders in business, non-profits, government and all industries. This podcast is intended to hear how experienced leaders developed their own brand of leadership and what others can do to develop leadership capabilities. Learning the difficult balancing act of effective leadership through compassionate accountability is at the core of this podcast.

Mike Skrypnek - Raging River? GET HELP!!
Mike Skrypnek lives in one of the most beautiful areas of the world in British Columbia, Canada. A year ago he found himself walking along the raging river near his home struggling to make a decision – should I jump in and end my emotional pain or continue my walk – for 10 days straight he took the same walk and asked the same question. He didn’t jump because of the pain it would cause his family. The love of his family kept him alive and eventually motivated him to tell his story of abuse and suffering from 40 years ago. The UNLimited Worth Project is his response to this trauma to help others overcome the subconscious limitations abuse causes in our life. Hear about his journey, his suffering and how he decided to break his silence, seek help and overcome his limits.
