The Unplugged Leader

Welcome to The Unplugged Leader, a podcast in which I dive deep into the transformative journeys of the people who have experienced our powerful Unplug 48 retreats. I'm your host, Carlien Cavens, founder of Unplug 48. In each episode, we'll explore the trials, triumphs, and transformations of our guests, digging into their pre-retreat life, their retreat experiences, and how they've evolved since. Let's unplug and start the conversation.

Note: This used to be 48 Minutes, a podcast series in which I interviewed inspiring leaders, to discover what makes them stand out.
