The Highly Valued Leader

With Mel Savage

Welcome to The Highly Valued Leader podcast where I make it simple for leaders at all levels to amplify their value.

You Want to Be a Top Performer

You’re a leader and you’re in a big job. You really want to do well. But there are so many moving pieces. You have people to grow and stakeholders to manage. It feels like you’re in back to back meetings every day. You’re constantly playing wack-a-mole with deadlines and deliverables. And even though you’re working your butt off, your performance isn’t where you want it to be.

And that’s shaking your confidence.

I get it. But don’t worry. You’re definitely leadership material. You just need someone experienced to help you navigate your way back to the top.

That’s where this podcast comes in.

you're in the right place.



You’re new to leadership
and it’s taking you longer than
you thought to settle in.


You’ve been a leader for a while
and there are still a few challenges
holding you back from being
a top performer.


You just got an even bigger
leadership role, and you want
to make sure you don’t miss a beat.

It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, there are commonalities to what makes a highly valued leader. And that’s what we cover in this podcast.
