#0036 – Where No Leadership Podcast has Gone Before with Jeff Akin

Today, my guest is Jeff Akin. Jeff is a former submariner who has more than 20 years of leadership experience in both the public and private sectors. He’s also a motivational speaker, voice-over artist, and podcast host. In fact, I think Jeff has the most unique leadership podcasts on the planet (and maybe other planets as well). He is the host and creator of the Starfleet Leadership Academy podcast. If you’re thinking Star Trek, you are correct. In this podcast, Jeff breaks down episodes of Star Trek and points out all of the important leadership lessons. You don’t have to be a fan of Star Trek fan to really appreciate the creativity of what he is doing. In a world crowded with leadership podcasts, the Starfleet Leadership Academy podcast is truly unique.
