Meet your hosts


Leanne Elliott is a Business Psychologist with fancy letters after her name and real-world experience…

Leanne is a fully-qualified Business Psychologist, with over 14 years of experience in developing high-performance cultures in leading private and public organisations, including the NHS, Department of Work & Pensions, Pinnacle People and Arielle Executive.

Leanne brings the science and best practice to each episode, drawing on her years of practical experience building outstanding cultures.



Al Elliott is definitely NOT a Business Psychologist. Instead he has real-world experience of building several businesses…

For the last 20+ years, Al (Leanne’s husband) has been an owner-leader of multiple businesses, and has vast experience in clarifying objectives and thinking creatively about processes for organisations like Salford Council & FC Utd, and has been featured on both BBC News & in the Financial Times.

Al’s job is to ensure that every episode contains practical and implementable advice that any leader can immediately use to improve their workplace.

I love the combo of levity and gravity. Leanne and Al are masterful at bringing that into their show. They make it approachable and applicable and, yes, even fun. Highly recommend, especially for anyone (I’m looking at you, leaders) who wants to create better workplace cultures.
