What IS this podcast

all about?


It’s a topic that many would say has been talked and written about FOREVER…is there anything new to say ?
maybe you’re thinking “Not another leadership podcast!”
It’s a fair observation. Let’s face it…

There are lots of podcasts on leadership!

So what makes the Mach 5 Leadership podcast different?

Simply put, The Mach 5 Leadership podcast isn’t just about “leading by the book”. It’s about creating a vision that inspires your team members to want to run through walls to follow you and your vision.

It isn’t just about the latest leadership technique. It’s about something sadly lacking in leadership today-character, integrity and accountability.

It’s about principles that pass the test in the real world, not ivory tower academic theories.

It does a deep-dive exploration into both transformational and servant leadership, two key engines that will provide the thrust to get your organization or your individual goals and aspirations over the top.

So join Tom Heemstra and his distinguished world class guests as they help you “kick the tires and light the fires” in preparation for a Mach 5 takeoff. Then you and your team can launch to new heights!
