S02E02 - Boss Pretending to Be A Leader - How Can You Tell?

Often it's easy to mistake a boss for a leader - usually because they've become good at faking it! Knowing how to spot fake leadership early can save you loads of heartache and stress when the red flags start flying, and the ship starts sinking. In this episode we discuss what makes a good leader, what makes a bad boss, and how to know (and be!) the difference.

S02E01 - Let's Get Educated

We kick off season *two* with a write in from a teacher who went through hell and back - and not because of her students. Too often on this show we only look at corporate America; the standard 9 to 5s. With teaching being the most common profession at municipal level, we thought it was high time to shed some light on the often-political world inside the schoolhouse walls. If you or anyone you love is an educator, this is the one for you! With the launch of season 2, we've started a W.L.B. listener's lounge Facebook group to discuss episodes, issues, and more.
