“Leadership comes from within, inspires others, and becomes a collective force that drives transformative social change.”
What defines a truly great leader? What drives them? What is it that makes them stand up in the crowd to inspire others? These are the questions that inspired Jack Heath and Dr. Deborah Osgood to partner up and create the book Kick-Ass Leadership. Together, they created a mission to not just discover what makes today’s great leaders tick, but explore how YOU can learn from them to become a better leader! After meeting the six leaders featured in their book and hearing their stories, they knew they had to keep this conversation going. Through the Movers & Shakers radio show, they continue their mission, inviting a different leader from a different background on the show each week to learn what drives them, what they are passionate about, and how they are moving and shaking things up to bring about positive change.
Join them by tuning in on Saturdays at 11:00 and Sundays at 10:00 am on WGIR AM610 and NewsTalk 96.7.

Through her PhD research she proved that mind can create matter and that true, long-lasting success begins with knowing who we are followed by what we know. Whether she was managing a multimillion-dollar investment portfolio for an international conglomerate, turning around a fledgling manufacturing company to become a global leader in high-end consumer electronics, or launching a public/private hybrid to facilitate collaboration in driving workforce and small business development nationally, she recognized that success relied first on believing in what you were doing. From there, learning what you needed to know to succeed came naturally.
Through her innovative workforce and entrepreneurial development programs, she is changing the conversation from “job creation” to “creating your own job!” As she puts it, “It’s simply about awakening the human spirit, having goals, and then getting out of the way!” Whether it’s at the individual or corporate level, she’s inspiring individuals and empowering America’s workforce.
