    Our mission at LifeLabs Learning is to help people master life’s most useful skills — and since we spend half of our lives at work, we like to think of the workplace as a practice lab for these skills.

    In this season's final episode, LifeLabs Learning Co-CEOs LeeAnn Renninger and Tania Luna share LifeLabs' origin story, and how we’ve navigated the extraordinary changes the last two years presented, all while growing the business, supporting other organizations, and distilling what we’ve learned into our new book: The Leader Lab: CORE Skills to Become a Great Manager, Faster.

Program Coordinator

I lead a team of facilitators that present to elementary school students everyday (experienced facilitator myself) and the whole vibe of life Labs is AMAZING! I get lots of great ideas and nuggets that help me to coach my team …and myself. I appreciate the genuine sentiment to never stop learning. These snackable pod cast episodes are so addicting and I appreciate the thoughtfulness behind them. Please keep them coming! I am inspired!!

Love these Jedi-mind tricks!

Stumbled upon this podcast while looking to brush up on my leadership skills and can already tell that it’s right up my alley.

Somehow manages to be both high-level *and* accessible, which is a feat in itself.

Looking forward to more!
