“Learning at the Edge” Podcast’s First Guest: Kevin Eikenberry

I have long found that the best way to spread the word about expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing is through peo­ple: People’s expe­ri­ences in using expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing to lead, han­dle change, com­mu­ni­cate, relate, and succeed.

When I decid­ed to join the ranks of pod­cast­ers, it was obvi­ous to me that my pod­cast should be inter­views with people.

This week I launch Learn­ing at the Edge, a pod­cast in which I inter­view lead­ers, edu­ca­tors, learn­ers, authors and oth­er fas­ci­nat­ing peo­ple who have found ways to suc­cess­ful­ly learn through their expe­ri­ence and can share some of these expe­ri­ences.  We have called the pod­cast  “Learn­ing at the Edge” because learn­ing hap­pens in a space in-between where there is insta­bil­i­ty, unknow­ing and vulnerability.

My first guest fits that to a tee. Kevin Eiken­ber­ry is a world renowned lead­er­ship expert, best-sell­ing author, train­er, coach, leader, pod­cast­er and life­long learn­er. He recent­ly pub­lished The Long-Dis­tance Team­mate, the ulti­mate guide for remote work­ers who want to stay engaged as team mem­bers. In my inter­view with him, he shares his exper­tise in remote work and the impor­tance of build­ing and main­tain­ing rela­tion­ships with your co-work­ers and team mem­bers, even when you’re work­ing remotely.

“Your tech­ni­cal or your sub­ject mat­ter skills per­haps will get you the job. But your suc­cess in any job — fifty years ago, five years ago, fif­teen years from now — will be about your abil­i­ty to cre­ate and main­tain and build relationships.”
