This is the podcast that host and creator,  Giselle Corbie, wish she had had when she started in her career, a podcast where we can learn from the insights of diverse leaders. The problems that our organizations face now are complex and benefit from having as many perspectives and voices as possible to help develop the most creative and sustainable solutions.


A Different Kind of Leader features diverse leaders and their journeys, insights, and experiences in their personal and leadership journey. We aim to lift the voices and stories of these incredible leaders who have changed the landscape of leadership.
