About Us

Stories heal us and bring us joy. Sharing our stories with others helps us gain insight, meaning and become our best selves. Hearing other people's stories helps us feel a sense of belonging, connection, and empathy. For the past 15 years as an executive coach and corporate trainer, I've heard over 50,000 personal stories from over 10,000 men and women from all around the world. This podcast is unique in that you get to join in real time as people share their insight from taking The Dale Carnegie Leadership Course and examples from practicing the principles from How to Win Friends and Influence People and How to Stop Worrying and Start Living. People have shared childhood stories, life lessons, how to resolve conflict, and best practices parenting. People have shared how to change, how to overcome imposter syndrome, and how to lead and inspire teams. This podcast is a gift back to all my clients for sharing their lives and learnings. My hope is that you as a listener might be inspired, empowered, entertained and encouraged. These are authentic, spontaneous, unscripted, imperfect, and raw. People are cracked open and vulnerable and we get to listen along as they willingly share what they are discovering about human nature and themselves. You get to overhear their experiment in living, loving, and leading. My hope is you're willing to trade perfect sound and script for authentic human experience and camaraderie. I hope you enjoy "eavesdropping" on people sharing stories and exchanging wisdom so you can be happy, kind and open to share your stories and connect with others.
