Hi, we’re Laura and Jonathan, unorthodox leadership coaches.

We are so so so bored with the same old conversations about what it takes to be a great leader. They have gotten us to where we are, but won’t take us to where we need to go.

Join us as we explore two riddles we’re absolutely obsessed with: “what the HECK is leadership?” and “what does it take to BE a highly effective leader?” In our attempts to revisit and answer those questions, we will detail tools, tips and topics all in the name of bridging The Leadership Gap.

This is not just another leadership podcast.

A Truly Enlightening and Empowering Podcast!

Full disclosure--when I first started listening to this podcast, I binged every single episode out there. I couldn't get enough!
Not only did it help expand my mind into learning better ways to communicate with others, it offered a glimpse into myself. Since starting this podcast, my relationship with myself has become more positive, supportive, and self-encouraging.
I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who could improve their communication skills (which I think applies to everyone!). You will learn how to talk about difficult subjects, to look into yourself for a better understanding of your habits, and you'll feel empowered to go forth into the world communicating more mindfully and with further compassion for life.
