What a journey! Thanks for listening and being a part OF this leadership podcast. Listen in as we reminisce on our podcast experience over the past few years and sum up some of our most formative leadership knowledge!

Mentorshipping (as the kids say?) - Let's talk about it.
As the OF Leadership Crew gets together, Zac has decided this episode would be great to talk about mentorship as a topic, as well as the crew's experiences with mentorship.

OF Stories - Tyler's Reflections on Dealing with Anxiety from Childhood into Adulthood
Talking with the OF Leadership Crew in this episode is Tyler! Tyler is a longtime listener and has been wanting to be a guest on the podcast for a long time! We appreciate Tyler's vulnerability, sharing his story. It's a his unique story but with many themes which resonate : dealing with childhood trauma and unknowable expectations, anxiety about making decisions, the stress of indecision, and the drain of an unfulfilling job. Thanks to Tyler for sharing!
[OF] A Book Review : Unwinding Anxiety by Judson Brewer
In this episode the OF Crew takes a look at Judson Brewer's book Unwinding Anxiety. Judson Brewer applies Cognitive Behavioral Theory, alongside a meditatively-inspired awareness perspective to understand and approaching the underlying processes that generate the and perpetuate anxiety. It's an interesting lens to look at and see what Bowen's Theory tells us about and alongside Jud's work.
John, Alec and Zac bring a fresh perspective to leadership and always keep it lively. I like when they have guests on who also have good stories and next to share. Quality production, keep it up!
Value and understanding
Subject of program clear. It is stated at the start of the meeging. As things moves along, it would be good to restate subject to restate it and keep everyone on track. . Alex should slow down some on speech for better understanding. Good examples presented showing problems, with examples on how to respond or act for positive outcome. Mr Bowan would be pleased.
Astoundingly relevant and useful
I don’t know how I stumbled upon this podcast because the “leadership” category might have turned me away, but every single episode has given me at least one of those moments when someone articulates some vague thought that has been rattling around in your head and you are stunned with relief and validation. Topics are applicable in many different areas of life and relationships.
