Lead with Grace, The Podcast

Join us, two everyday leaders, led by a spirit of grace, working to lead right where our feet are planted. Here we’ll circle together for conversations with leaders from all backgrounds and hear their stories. We’ll see how intentional lives are led and dive into the tools, mindsets, communication methods, collaborative strategies, and self-care that make it all possible. Lead with Grace, The Podcast celebrates the mosaic of everyday leaders leading right where they are with everything they are. Blending the practical and profound, conversations and reflections explore stories of vocation, especially as it intersects with communication, collaboration, connection, and calling. Hosted by Karina Nelsen, an educator and communications coach, and Jenny Bean, an occupational therapist and small business owner.
