This is the Leadership Journey series on the Choosing Leadership Podcast.

I believe we all have a lot to learn from each other’s stories – of where we started, where we are now, and our successes and struggles on the way. With this series of interviews, my attempt is to give leaders an opportunity to share their stories and for all of us to learn from their generous sharing. If you know a leader whom you would like to see celebrated on the show, please send me a message on LinkedIn with their name.

Tune in to our latest podcast episode as we sit down with Karoli, the brilliant mind behind Jobbatical, a game-changing company using automation and AI to revolutionize the way we navigate the often bewildering world of visas and relocations.
