"Because people matter, we must lead them well" One key problem we run into is that we focus on technical skill and don't work on communications and influence. In this podcast I'll help you get more of the important "geek work" done by helping you get others to want to help you!

Excellent Professional Leadership Development
Tom Cooper has a wealth of knowledge on leadership in the business community and he does a great job sharing it with the listener. His podcast is pleasant to listen to, well organized, concise, and - most importantly - helpful to professional development. I highly recommend his podcast.
I love the topics and the show is of high quality. I think the episodes are a great length… not too long and not too short, perfect for my commute. Tom does a great job to help Geeks improve.
Excellent knowledge even fog non Geeks!
Although I am not in the IT world, this is good stuff even for non-geeks. Extremely good production quality as well. Highly recommended!
