We will provide the infrastructure and mentoring to produce a podcast mini-series of 6-8 episodes of a podcast that will be published on The HLA Listen service broadcasting on Spotify, Apple Music and the majority of podcasting platforms.

To Build a Leader


The Problem

Leadership is an abstract concept. Everyone wants to be a good leader yet very few people can define what that is. We find ourselves thinking of examples but ultimately there is no one true formula.

That being said, there are definitely tangible characteristics, skills and abilities that we associate with good leadership and understanding these is a good practical step to understanding leadership.

The Solution

Join our trio of doctors and medical students on our brand new podcast as they explore the world of leadership. They’ll use anecdotes, research and experiences to delve into the skills they’ve found to be essential to leadership in every walk of life.
