    In today's episode, we address CEO succession, and what's unique is we're going to talk about my succession from the CEO role at Best Christian Workplaces.

Clearly one of the top thought-leadership podcasts available

The Flourishing Culture Podcast is a high-quality show filled with content about healthy organizational culture. The show features guests of Christian-led organizations from churches, to businesses, to authors, and spiritual directors. A simple to follow format with conversational topics, this show provides a lot of information for leaders to learn and grow in their personal leadership and organizational leadership.
