The Workplace Forward Podcast is designed to empower perpetually busy, always overstretched senior leaders to prioritize professional development. We aim to answer the question: what behaviors, practices, beliefs and skills must the future leader possess that will enable them to lead systems that have and will continue to change at warp speed?
Based on the success of her first podcast for growth-oriented leaders—the Life & Leadership Podcast, cohosted with Katie Rasoul—Executive Coach Tegan Trovato launched The Workplace Forward Podcast in 2021. The Workplace Forward Podcast provides senior-level leaders and executives with essential insights they can use to navigate the future workplace—along with best practices on bringing out the more human side of leadership.
The Podcast features Tegan’s interviews with executives, experts, authors, and innovators about their leadership journeys. Tegan’s conversations focus on workplace issues, business initiatives, and self-care solutions that will help executives take well-deserved time to learn, recharge, and stay ahead of the curve on emerging leadership ideas to gain peace of mind.
