Literally the most unsung podcast on the internet. Jeff Akin should be on the tip of everyone's tongue when it comes to leadership. TED talks, talk show appearances...people, this is your guy! On this podcast, Jeff teaches next leadership through Star Trek! It's incredible. It's fun, it's interesting, it's engaging and it is effective. Highly recommend!
I am a huge Star Trek fan but haven't enjoyed a lot of the new stuff that has come out. This podcast has renewed my love for the franchise! Jeff is energetic, charismatic, entertaining and brilliant. His ability to take these episodes, even the terrible ones, and teach such actionable and timely leadership and management lessons is amazing. I highly recommend this podcast.
I heard of Jeff Akin when he appeared on Something For Nothing- A Rush Fancast. Where he talked about his love of Rush and in particular their drummer, Neil Peart (The Professor). From there I heard of this podcast dealing with leadership principles in the light of Star Trek. I started at the beginning of this podcast and have a ways to catch up. I have enjoyed it so far. I look forward to digging in deeper. -WJames💀’s and🌈’s
This podcast is interesting because it uses the Star Trek shows as examples of great leadership. He gives specific and actionable insights and activities related to leadership. Fun to listen to even if you don’t watch Star Trek. Guarantee you’ll learn something.
This show is so fun! What a creative way to revisit the Trekkie universe and entertain at the same time. Obvious choice for the fans.
I’m not a regular fan of Star Trek programs, but I’m super impressed with this podcast and the energy in each episode. I like the premise of using episodes of the Star Trek universe to pull out timely leadership practices and tips. Nice work! Definitely recommend this for any leaders that also love sci-fi!
If you’re looking for a new view on leadership, and more Star Trek, this is your podcast! Jeff even broke down The Infinite Vulcan and did a fantastic job of showing how well Star Trek covers diversity & how we can all apply it into our own business. Jeff Akin has the business experience that will help you boldly go where no one has gone before.
I am not a Star Trek fan, not because it isn’t entertaining, rather much of its core messaging is extremely problematic. That being said, Jeff creates a very entertaining and well done podcast that really draws you in. His message is distilling leadership principles from the episodes, which is something on which we can agree. Jeff’s experience, humor, and obvious talent comes through each episode and leaves the listener entertained, engaged, and thinking. I don’t know what else you would want. If you are a Star Trek fan, this is a no-brainer, if you are not, I still encourage you to listen. You will find as I did, that it is well worth your time.
I love Jeff’s take on summarizing episodes of Star Trek canon, sharing some behind-the-scenes facts, then pulling lessons on leadership out of those episodes. I had forgotten there was an animated series until this show! Great blend of fun, humor, entertainment, and ah-ha moments.
This show is fantastic! I recommend it often to friends who are interested in leadership or Star Trek or BOTH! Jeff is an absolute pro with a killer voice and a passion for this. Hit play…you won’t regret it!
First, this show is just fun. The enthusiasm is palpable and stories are classic. Second, the production is fantastic! It features lots of clips and sound bites from the original shows. Really nicely done! Third, the principles are sound. It’s easy for leadership material to feel dry. This format makes it so great to take in! I was a bit put off by the sheer quantity of ads (I lost count after 6), but I know a show has to pay the bills somehow. Overall it’s an amazing show that you should definitely drop in and listen to!
I was encouraged by many of the podcast’s reviews from others like me that said they weren’t huge fans of Star Trek but enjoyed the show. I’m glad that was enough to convince me to give it a chance because who doesn’t love a show that finds a way to engage you on an interesting topic but with a truly unique spin? Whoever that person is we wouldn’t be friends anyway and I definitely wouldn’t trust their podcast recommendation or playlist. This show is worth a listen. The host has an incredible podcasting voice that’s extremely easy and enjoyable to listen to. His enthusiasm is obvious and one might say unarguably contagious. Try not to get sucked in all you want - but I promise that you can’t!
This podcast is incredibly creative. I love the way that the host has found a way to take a topic that he loves, and review that while also applying it to leadership principles, and sharing takeaways that we can all take into our every day lives. Well done!
I’m not a big Star Trek fan , but thoroughly enjoyed how the host weaved in elements of the show with leadership advice. I found this podcast to be unique and engaging. Well done!
As a Star Trek fan and fellow podcaster (Simplify Jesus podcast), this is a fun one to listen to! Good leadership talks using episodes and scenarios from all throughout the Star Trek timeline in a fun and engaging way.
This podcast is well produced and a really fun way to learn about leadership. Give it a listen!
This is such a creative way to explore leadership! Jeff gives a fun recap of the Star Trek episode at the beginning before digging into the lessons we can take away from it. Even if you’re not a Trekkie, you’ll enjoy Jeff’s take.
To be transparent I do not know much about star trek so I didn't expect to be captured by this podcast! However I was greatly uplifted hearing how he can relate the leadership qualities from the characters from the show! He really brings it down to earth with applicable lessons on how we can improve out own leadership! Thank you
I’m soooo pleased that I found this podcast! Very happy that the r planes were so relevant to my organization even though I’ve never seen the Star Trek episode that was referenced. It didn’t matter because the truths that were communicated are universal. Excellent addition to anyone’s podcast feed! Looking forward to more.
While I would never call myself a true “trekky I grew up on Star Trek. I have has mixed feelings over the years about the shows that have come and gone. I wanted to find out more about the new show and I have got to say, they now have my attention. The insights and just passion on this show make me believe I have been missing out by not trying the new show.
This is a very unique show concept that illustrates how Star Trek is full of leadership examples. It has the trivia and fandom warranted of Star Trek but it gets translated into day to day life lessons and leadership insights. If you have any passion for science fiction, and at least no aversion to Star Trek, you will enjoy this podcast.
I’ll admit right away that I’m not that well versed in Star Trek. I only seem to recall the beginning of one of the movies I saw in theaters where the champagne bottle smashed into the spaceship? But Jeff has piqued my interest in it! He adds a layer of depth with his analyses and analogies that make me want to go more in depth into the show, very well done!!!
I try to fill my podcast feed with both educational and entertainment podcasts. This one helps me check both boxes. I sincerely hope this is helping me to improve both as a coach and a leader
Jeff proves you can do a lot with some hefty Star Trek knowledge and makes a great pitch for what you can gain from Starfleet Academy!
What a unique cool show! If you enjoy Star Trek and you strive to learn more about leadership - this is the best podcast out there!!! Don’t miss this, A+
i’ve been listening to this podcast for a month, and I really like it. I’ll be honest, I usually can’t stand leadership and self-help podcasts, but this one has the magic formula for me. I feel like it will appeal to fans of the genre, and grumpy nerds like me.
It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross; but it's not for the timid."
As a Trekkie, I love the episode recaps and insights. As a manager, I love the leadership tips and ideas Jeff explores. Add the extra benefits of humor and personal stories, makes this podcast a must listen.
This podcast is 100% worth the listen. I wanted to hear some leadership content, little did I know I was going be hooked on Star Trek…thankfully there’s plenty of episodes to carry me through for a while. Can’t wait to use the advice I learned as well as the Star Trek references at my business.
