What is LEADx and The LEADx Show with Kevin Kruse?
Imagine if you could have the world’s best executive coaches and leadership mentors whispering into your ear every morning on your way to work.
Every weekday, there will be a new episode of The LEADx Leadership Show with an interview from a different thought leadership or business expert. Many of these guests are thought leaders, famous authors or high-profile CEOs from innovative startup companies. Others are creatives, artists, entrepreneurs or corporate career leaders. They have all achieved extreme success and they are willing to share practical advice on how to advance your career and develop your leadership and management skills by offering daily career tips on time management, productivity, marketing, personal branding, communication, sales, leadership, team building, talent management and other personal development and career development topics.
There will be a new episode waiting for you every day just in time for your morning commute, morning treadmill session or whatever else it is you do to start your day.
LEADx isn’t just the name of this new podcast, it’s the name of a digital media and online learning company that is re-imagining professional development for millennials and career driven professionals looking to break into manager roles or excel in current leadership and management roles.
If you’re looking for management training or professional development that is delivered in a fun and engaging way, sign up for our daily newsletter at LEADx.org. It’s packed with life hacks, daily career tips and leadership challenges that will turn you into a high potential leader in no time.
What does LEADx stand for? We are exploring leadership. We are about NEXT GENERATION leadership.
We believe that professional training and workplace education has not kept up with advances in digital media. Today’s emerging leaders and management professionals just don’t find 5 day workshops or eLearning modules to be very compelling. Today’s talent is mobile and social.
LEADx wants to help those that want to make an impact. Leadership is not a choice. You don’t need a title to lead. You’re a leader whether you want to be or not. Leadership is about influence.
We want to help those who want to be great leaders. Great leaders at work, at home and in the neighborhood. We want to help others who just want more from life and who want to achieve their full potential.
We hope you join us on this journey! Sign up at LEADx.org.
