Jeff Akin makes leadership a blast. I love how he uses Star Trek to teach really complex stuff. He’s totally changed how I watch Star Trek and is an important part of my growth as a leader.
MC Anime He knows what he does and how Star Trek is his inspiration. The passion he has for what he does and giving purpose to people through leadership is wonderful. In one conversation there is not enough to express to get know him in that short amount of time. He is a great guy and strives for best version of yourself you can be. The training you can receive with leadership and Star Trek is his pride and joy. He is definitely the Star Trek Leading Guru. 5 out 5 for what a special should be. Definitely, recommend him to anyone who wants an interesting story, leadership, business management, wrestling, and Star Trek.
I'm a relatively new listener to the Starfleet Leadership Academy and as I work through the back catalogue of episodes I find this quickly becoming one of my favourite podcasts. It is both fun and informative with many gems of wisdom that I am keen to apply to my daily life. Would recommend to anyone whether an aspiring leader or not.
Jeff Atkin is taking one of the greatest sci-fi franchises of all time and making it applicable for today’s leaders. Love it!
I’m not a Trekkie (if anyone asks, I mean… shhh), but I used to work in the corporate world. Now that I work mostly solo, you might think that I’d have no use for a corporate leadership podcast. However, after listening to a couple episodes I’ve found this show to be as helpful as it is entertaining. The host masterfully draws the principles out of the episodes. I generally find one solid principle per episode, and I’ve actually found a surprising context in which to apply them: my own household. Keep up the great work!
If you’re tired of the same old corporate type leadership info, Jeff Akin’s podcast is for you! A look at leadership thru the lens of Star Trek. Thoughtful and entertaining!
Jeff distills the lessons I’m Trek in an insightful and humorous way. Great show and a must listen.
This is, honestly, the most unique and valuable podcast I’ve ever heard. Jeff’s ability to pull this stuff from Star Trek is amazing. This is a must listen podcast.
If you love Star Trek, then you are going to LOVE this podcast. Both die-hard and casual fans will leave entertained by this!
Jeff is so creative and fun. This podcast was such a find and so thankful I decided to stop and listen. Jeff's view and how he presents leadership is for everyone; and the bonus is learing about the Star Trek characters from a leadership perspective. Always hear something I can apply to my life when I listen!
Jeff is gifted at taking complex problems and turning them into consumable nuggets. His experience, wit & the way he’s able to connect such valuable lessons is why this podcast rocks!
Jeff does a great job teaching leadership examples through some sci-fi fun! The delivery of real life management and critical communication lessons through Star Trek episodes is a unique way to professionally and personally grow. Jeffs delivery makes me laugh and smile throughout every episode. I look forward to new episode releases and recommend this to anyone who would like some real food for thought while nostalgia flows full force.
I have been in federal management for years. I just finished an MBA thinking it would help me in my career. I think I have learned so much more about leadership through the podcast than I did with my MBA. The subject matter makes it thought provoking and relatable to me- as I love ST. Mr. Akin, thanks for this. I look forward to each new podcast.
Self improvement is the key to success and the way jeff lays it out is so interesting, entertaining and helpful. Always enjoy listening! Keep up the great work
Not all podcasts are the same and this one stands out! I absolutely love the leadership Academy. Keep up the great work, the community as a whole could benefit from following this podcast! Leaders with a proven track record. Now if Jeff would run for Governor...
Absolutely stunning podcasts with sound reasoning, thought provoking concepts and truly amazing and talented production. Listening to these podcasts helps me see things in a new light and helps me think about my own leadership through the lens of Starfleet Leadership Academy Podcast. Looking forward to more episodes.
Leadership taught through the lens of some of my favorite Star Trek episodes is simply genius. This is both nostalgic and informative. Salute to Jeff…Tea,Earl grey, Hot
Jeff always keeps it funny and draws on experience as a manager to make this a relatable and great podcast even for, gulp, non-Trek fans.
Well produced and interesting. I enjoy the thoughtful way that the host presents has ideas and it’s interesting to move between series over each episode.
This is a really well put together podcast. The quality is pro level. Cool concept to use Star Trek as a leadership tool. I love the idea, keep it coming!
