This L3 Leadership podcast episode comes to you from our breakfast series. We recently had Jeff Leake, Pastor of Allison Park Church, speak. We split our time with Jeff into two episodes for the podcast. In this episode, you will hear Jeff’s talk. He spoke on finding joy in our journey. We believe this is a critical lesson for you to learn in your leadership journey. In episode #101 of the podcast, you can listen to our question and answer session with Jeff.
