Krister Ungerböck often works with high-profile CEOs, coaching them on best practices when it comes to leadership, communication and employee engagement. But his efforts to help people lead well extend beyond the upper echelons of organizational management and into everyday workplaces as well as family life.

On Monday’s St. Louis on the Air, St. Louis Public Radio’s Jeremy D. Goodwin talked with Ungerböck as he looked to travel to St. Louis a little later in the week to speak  at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

They discussed what Ungerböck describes in the title of his upcoming book as “The Language of Leadership: Words to Transform How We Lead, Live and Love.”

Ever felt stuck in a problematic job situation? You’re not alone.

The #MeToo movement has led to increased awareness and empowerment around issues of sexual harassment and assault in all sorts of industries. But other forms of mistreatment can crop up in the workplace as well, and employees sometimes feel trapped in difficult environments.

“People do need their jobs, and the more toxic the environment, the harder it can be to leave,” local therapist Dena Bubrick-Tranen said on Wednesday’s St. Louis on the Air.
