Welcome to the UnRuley Leadership podcast! In this very first episode, I talk about what inspired me to make a podcast and how listening to the podcast will help you to fulfill your greatest career aspirations.

Even though I’m a leadership & life coach, my background is actually in economics and I had never even heard of the term ‘emotional intelligence’ before my thirties! I discovered the world of leadership development by accident when I read Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In and I’ve been hooked on leadership books ever since. I decided to make the UnRuley Leadership to share my thoughts on energetic leadership, productivity, achieving a work-life balance, style and more.
