Lead your team!

If you want to be the best leader that you possibly can then call Loren or Lauren Marie at Kutsko Consulting. Kutsko will help you apply the eight Dimensions to your team. Whether you are a leader in your first leadership position, or if you have been a leader for four decades, the eight dimensions cover in a concise clear way, the basic issues of being a good leader. If you are a new leader you will learn the eight dimensions of being a strong leader. If you have been leading teams for four decades, the podcast is a great reminder of how you can keep your leadership strong.

Solid real life examples

Listening to Lauren and Loren I walk away with a couple of items I can work on each episode. I enjoy the real life scenarios they use and the examples from their experience! A great podcast to share!

Highly recommend

I’m only one pod in so far but I can already tell this is an amazing podcast done by two people who are true experts in the field. Lauren and Loren have great rapport and play off each other so well to make this easy to listen to and understand. I’ve been in a leadership position for several years and I think their points on how to be a truly effective leader are spot on! Wish I had this available years ago…could have saved a lot of trial and error LOL!
