Best Podcast Picks for Successful Leaders

Who doesn't like Netflix?  But for those of us who really love audio, podcasts are a great way to transform what might have been dead, downtime into an opportunity to explore, learn and be inspired. 

My favourite times to listen are in the gym (it makes the treadmill or stairmaster so much more bearable), driving (a relief from the tedium of talk radio) and commuting (I have surprised myself by welcoming delays when I am engrossed in a podcast).  Because they are audio only, unlike Netflix, you don't have to look at a screen, making them a fantastic way to multi-task when you are just gardening, walking or housework. 

And the quality is really improving, podcasters have come a long way from the beta days of 10 years ago, now they are mostly professional offering good, free content and reliable scheduling.

I've dipped in and out of various podcasts over the years but there are a few that have really stood the test of time and continue to deliver exceptional quality.  I thought I would share them here so you can try them out yourself.

For Leaders: Coaching for Leaders, Dave Stachowiak, Dave's engaging and humble style belies the huge value leaders, and aspiring leaders can get from his weekly podcasts.  Brilliant guests from the business world, well documented resources and notes, and a wide variety of leadership topics.

For Inspiration: Jordan Harbinger Show, born out of the original Art of Charm team and now going solo, Jordan offers a razor sharp approach and interviews some of the most interesting guests, whilst delving into the psychology of top performers.

For Fun: Stuff You Should Know, more than 500 episodes to explore topics from the bizarre to the commonplace, if you wanted to know that real zombies exist in Haiti, that there is a tribe that practices the lost art of head shrinking, and that Louis Braille was just 15 when he developed his system for a raised alphabet, then this is the podcast for you.
