We all have a story. Our stories with all their pain and joy, challenge and gifts shape us in so many ways. I believe that when we take our pain and challenges, shape and transform them into gifts that help others, we ourselves transform into bringers of Light and catalysts of change.

I invited one such Light bringer and change catalyst, Rodney Mueller, an executive coach, business advisor, and host of The Absent Father Podcast to a conversation with me.

Rodney, who’s been interviewed by Oprah, shares his vulnerable, powerful story about his absent father, how it’s shaped him and his life. We also talk about how it’s shaped his work as a leader, and the gifts that such an experience brings.

The Absent Father Podcast is a wonderful resource if you’ve had an absent or distant father, or any wounding around your father. I’m so delighted that Rodney with his warmth, vulnerability, and vision is hosting this for the world. Do check it out.


Here’s the interview:
