Today is a special day. This morning I released the final podcast episode in my inaugural first season consisting of 12 interviews with incredible leaders from around the country. All 12 are incredibly accomplished individuals representing multiple sectors, have powerful leadership lessons to share, and serve as role models for all of us working hard to advance positive change. I am blessed to know each of these individuals and admire their determination, compassion and creativity.
Across all of our discussions, we talked about career pathways, innovation at work and lessons learned from managing people and projects. A common thread that surfaced was the power of relationships — our relationships with ourselves, with others and with our communities. It was relationships with mentors that have guided so many careers, opened doors and challenged assumptions. Relationships across sectors have strengthened and accelerated solutions to social issues. Relationships with communities have expanded opportunities for the most vulnerable, put strengths to work in unique collaborations and mobilized untapped assets.
It has been an honor to interview each of my guests, and I remain committed to helping raise awareness of the positive impact they are making. Be sure to check out each of the following episodes from season one — season two launches soon!
