This podcast series presents conversations about, well, conversation. Noted communication and leadership counselor Drew Kugler talks with people from all walks of life, and a range of professions, who have made an impact in the world. These episodes offer insights that you can apply to conversations in the workplace, at home, and anywhere that you want to make a difference.
What's The Moral?
It's easy to watch a news story and decide what we think of the characters involved. In this episode, I explore how we can better pause and learn the lessons of what happens around us - not so we can make judgements about others, but so we can make changes in ourselves.
What makes the best leaders? My guest today discusses the dedication to listening and caring she believes to be the cornerstone of true leadership. In a world that focuses so much on what people do, Shellye and I take the time to dive into how good leaders make the people around them feel.
How are your political conversations going these days? Not with people with whom you agree - I mean the ones with people whose views you can't even begin to fathom. Are you even having them? Just remember - no matter what happens in this election, those people aren't going anywhere. If you're not constructively engaging in the discomfort, what are you accomplishing?
It's not just showing up to the scene and taking pictures. My guest this week discusses how he uses conversation to build trust and respect on the ground, even in the most dangerous and emotionally charged situations, in order to produce the best photographs for the New York Times.
How do you guide an organization and the people it serves through uncertainty? My guest today explains how his school uses its mission and values as a "north star," regardless of the circumstances they can't control.
Forget where "Cancel Culture" shows up in the slog of news and media. Instead, think about where it shows up in your life. When is the last time you shut someone out, and why? Indulge me in a brief exploration of how we can better engage with people who we feel have wronged us or those we care about.

Great listening to great conversation
This podcast features practitioners and thinkers from an array of professions-education, corporate leadership, religion, marketing, entertainment-some you likely know, some you likely don’t, all of whom are interesting to hear in this informal context, regardless of your own profession. There’s much to learn, and understanding to gain, without being a TED-like presentation (even though I can see each guest at a TED). Kugler easily slides between friendly banter and questions that draw out his guest. You’ll be interested in topics and people you never thought you would have been.
Great guests but drew talks too much
Hard to get to the good stuff because of Drew’s babbling on and on
Drew Kugler has gotten some true heavyweights to appear with him on his podcast. He's able to establish a real conversational intimacy with his guests, and that's led to some really fascinating and entertaining conversations. More, please!...
