Not a Star Trek fan, but…

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.

Digging the Star Trek format

I used to be a star trek fan so I’m loving the application of the theme!


Super fun way to go deep on leadership lessons and ideas. Not personally a Star Trek fan but show still resonates on deep levels.

Enjoyable even for a non Trekkie

I really enjoyed the episodes I listened to, and I’m not even a Star Trek fan. That being said, it brought me back to my days of watching this show as a kid with my parents and I learned a few valuable lessons.

Unique and compelling

If you love StarTrek and you value leadership you’ll love this podcast! Jeff is fun to listen to and really takes time to develop the episodes, giving them a layer of depth you don’t often hear in leadership related podcasts. Viewing leadership through the lens of this iconic TV series is such a unique and compelling idea. Keep up the great work.

Love it!

I really like how Jeff draws comparisons to leadership principles in this allegorical way. Great concept and fun to listen to!

Production and Story

I listened to the episode “Unity“. Immediately the level of production stood out to me. The music and sound effects were perfect and well-placed. I have never seen an episode of Voyager, but I grew up a huge TNG fan. Not to worry Jeff did a full recap of the episode of Voyager his unity episode was based on. It was amazing how entertaining his episode recap was. I found myself googling Chakotay and other characters. Ultimately, the lesson from the episode was about cooperation and unity and leadership. It was a great way to illustrate those important principles. I’ll continue listening. My only gripe was the frequency of ads. Perhaps one too many for the episode length.

New twist on Leadership

If you’re looking for a new view on leadership, and more Star Trek, this is your podcast. Jeff Akin has experience that will help you get where you want to go, check it out!

Leadership Has Never Been So Fun

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.

Jeff Akin As a Phenomenal Guest

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.

Leadership for life and 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.

A great Star Trek leadership mashup!

Jeff Atkin is taking one of the greatest sci-fi franchises of all time and making it applicable for today’s leaders. Love it!

Unexpected but welcome combo: Star Trek and Leadership

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!

Excellent and informative

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!


Insightful and informative… loved this..!!! Keep up the great work..!!!

Informative and Funny

Jeff distills the lessons I’m Trek in an insightful and humorous way. Great show and a must listen.

Incredible - 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.

Fun perspective on leadership!

If you love Star Trek, then you are going to LOVE this podcast. Both die-hard and casual fans will leave entertained by this!

Unique and fun take on leadership

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!

A Must 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!

Leadership in a fun and digestible way!!

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.

Great topics!

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.

Jeff is amazing

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


An episode as great as the man narrating it!

I love the leadership academy

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...

Fully Engaged

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.
