Make An Impact While Healing From The Hard Things
The Unburdened Leader is a podcast about leadership, the burdens of trauma, and the journey you take to find your biggest impact as a leader. Join me, Rebecca Ching, as I discover practical strategies for redefining challenges and vulnerability while becoming a better leader. Find the courage, confidence, clarity, and compassion to step up for yourself and others—even when things feel really, really hard.
About The Unburdened Leader
Meet thriving leaders who have embraced their own humanity and life’s mission through the burdens they carry, how these burdens often take them down, and how they rise from them. In each episode, we dive into how leaders like you deal with struggle and growth so that you can lead without burnout or loneliness and continually make an impact for the greater good.
Why A Podcast?
