The Power of Podcasts. Are You Using It for Your Leadership Development?

by | Sep 30, 2022 | Podcast

Leaders empower teams through the community they create in their organizations. But, to continue leading their teams in the most impactful way possible, leaders must find a community that empowers them as well. That, in part, is where the Workplace Forward Podcast was born.

It also came as a way to satisfy my natural curiosity about leadership. Let’s be honest, being a leader has never been more difficult, risky, ambiguous, or more rewarding than it is today. Through these podcast interviews, I unearth lessons senior leaders can share with each other. I want to empower leaders to ask themselves the hard questions and discover solutions that can make an impact on themselves, their teams, and their organizations. These discussions also examine what great senior leaders have in common with each other and determine how that might relate to a recipe for excellence in senior leadership. 

International Podcast Day™ is an international celebration of the power of podcasts and I want to take this opportunity to not only celebrate the work we’re doing with this Bright Arrow podcast but also celebrate podcasts that leave me feeling empowered. In a world where we are perpetually busy and always overstretched, my goal is to help senior leaders prioritize professional development and navigate the future workplace. In addition to the Workplace Forward Podcast, below are some of my favorite podcasts – podcasts that leave me feeling inspired, empowered, and asking difficult questions.

  • The Tim Ferriss Show
    Not only is this the #1 business podcast on all of Apple Podcasts, it set the bar for me for podcast production and deep interviewing. His interviews delve into excellence and the human experience.
  • Zen Founder

It is a combination of interviews with successful entrepreneurs, conversations with experts, and honest reflections on entrepreneur life.

    This podcast shares real, individual stories of humanity and how others are experiencing life. These stories are so artfully told and I love hearing about life’s journeys through different perspectives.

    What’s the best way to create more happiness – learn more about it through conversations that explore being happy.
