Humans have told stories since the beginning of time as a medium to connect and pass knowledge from one generation to the next. Robert and Michael aim to explore these stories with today’s leaders with real and raw conversation – getting rid of all the noise in today’s data driven, twitter-fed society. The art of storytelling has taken a back seat to 24 hour news, politicking and diminished attention spans. As we began to contemplate this shift, we developed The Climb – Cross Roads and Defining Moments – to capture the stories of today’s leaders. Each of our esteemed guests will bring their own unique set of circumstances they faced in their life to our podcast so that our listeners can hear the raw and unfiltered truth. The climb is never easy – the cross roads and defining moments shape us.
