The Dignity Dialogue Podcast

For nearly 20 years, Joe Kiedinger’s life pursuit has been researching and re-imagining what it means to lead others. It all started with a desire to better communicate with his stepson and led to his discovery of leadership through dignity—being worthy of honor and respect.

This podcast digs deep into culture, communication, dignity, personal development and organizational health topics with the goal of strengthening your company and your leadership skills. Joe provides practical advice for leaders and real, honest conversation with a lot of wit along the way.

Who are Joe and April?

Joe Kiedinger is a well-versed podcaster, keynote speaker, entrepreneur, author of three books on leadership (The Brander in Chief, Remove Your Fear, Build Your Career and The Dignity Based Franchise), blogger of Wisdom on Wednesday, CEO of Dignify, and a father of four. He also holds a utility patent for the technology Dignify. He was named one of the top “20 People You Should Know” by the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce and is deeply passionate about his personal purpose: teaching acceptance in an unaccepting world.

Joe discovered the idea for his life-changing tool, Dignify, while struggling to communicate with his pre-teen stepson, Alex. Since its inception, the Dignify platform has grown and adapted to help thousands of people in the workplace to improve communication, enhance efficiency, develop cohesive teams and drive visions forward.

April Johnson is the Director of Coaching & Curriculum at Dignify. As a coach, she proves to be a great listener and guide, no doubt due to her experience as a teacher. April is a proud mother of six and grandparent of one granddaughter, River. She is inspiration personified, striving to leave the world a better place than she found it.

I want to join in on the fun!
