This podcast is for individuals who are ready to engage their heart, mind and soul in growing themselves and others to:Think positively, Live healthy, Build faith, Read more, Stay strong, Work hard, Network well, Worry less, Love always… AND Lead Uncommonly! In a fun interview format I will be engaging leaders from various walks of life who have a great story to tell and experience or have experienced similar challenges that we face every day. We will banter about relevant topics in Leadership through fun conversation and dialogue. We will examine current subjects and events and introduce simple, yet impactful steps you can take to make a difference… all in less than the time of your commute, your lunch, your workout or your walk to 10,000 steps a day! I might even sneak in some solo podcasts on those topics that I encounter with my coaching and consulting clients.

Uncommon Path: Passionate Leadership Rooted in Faith - Joseph Gallagher
Hey Uncommon Leaders welcome back – Today is a special day, as you'll be hearing from a very unique voice – my son, Joseph Gallagher. I've been holding onto this recording, waiting for the perfect time to share it with you all. You see, Joseph is a man marked by passion – passion for rock climbing, passion for his new wife, Amy, whom he just married this past weekend and a deep passion for his relationship with Jesus. One of the things about the wedding that impacted me the most was when Joseph’s friends shared stories about their friendship over the years with Joseph.  The common theme… Passion!Joseph is currently a Staff Associate for the Young Life Organization in Boulder, CO, where he has a burden to see a movement of students come to know the Lord in Boulder.This episode comes nearly two years to the day after his first official sermon in Boulder, Colorado, so  It's not your typical leadership talk, but if there's anything I've learned, it's that the Uncommon often hides in the not-so-typical. So, imagine exhibiting the kind of passion Joseph displays in his sermon  in your daily work. What could that make possible? The answer is straightforward: Uncommon marriages, uncommon friendships, and an uncommon impact in business and in life. So, get ready for an experience as we dive into this episode packed with passion, faith, and a perspective only Jo-Jo Gallagher can bring. Thanks for listening in to the Uncommon Leader Podcast.
