Podcasts are essential to my self development. Without podcasts, I would not be the same person I am today.
In case you don’t know, a podcast is an audio or video file on the internet for download on any device. There’s podcasts about cats, golf, government, business, investing, anime, baking, and just about anything that may interest you.
Around August of last year, I began my adventure of podcast listening. The following podcasts enriched my life and brought crazy passion. To those podcasters, if you’re reading, THANK YOU! from the bottom of my heart. You’ve made a huge difference in my life.
What I share below are the top podcasts for leaders in no particular order.
This is Your Life – Michael Hyatt
Michael Hyatt, the previous CEO of Thomas Nelson (major publishing company), speaks on living with intentional leadership. He speaks about creating greater focus and living with audacious passion. He usually provides simple step-by-step process to achieve an end result. He also answers around 5-8 listener questions. It’s a great way to get your platform promoted. He’s answered about 4-5 of my questions 😀
Some of my favorite episodes:
How Do Busy Leaders Find Time for Social Media
How to Become a Morning Person
How to Overcome the Resistance
How to Say No Without Feeling Guilty
The How of Wow
48 Days – Dan Miller
Dan Miller is a millionaire career coach with enough inspiration in his finger tip to light a fire in a passionless sloth. He shares success stories and answers questions about business and careers. He has amazing insight into the “why” and “how” of business. If you have any question about your job, business or need a job, please spend 3 minutes and ask him. His podcasts eventually disappear, so get them quick!
If you haven’t already, I’d encourage you to join his online community 48Days.net. This community is alive and active with the pursuit of passion and profitability.
Starve the Doubts – Jared Easley
Jared Easley is the self-proclaimed “Average Guy” who interviews today’s top minds. Jared’s podcast has a great informal approach which provides you a little more insight into who the interviewee is. Jared is not only a friend to me, but an inspiration. He encourages me to pursue the Leadership Dojo and I love him for it.
Some of my fav interviews:
#12 – Chris Brogan
#16 – Pat Flynn
#10 – Dave Delaney
Andy Stanley Leadership Podcast – Andy Stanley
Andy is the Founder of North Point Ministries. His podcasts provide great content of a tried and true leader. I absolutely love his insight on how to move organizations from point A (awful) to point B (awesome!). Sadly, his podcasts are only once a month and disappear over time.
Entrepreneur on Fire – John Lee Dumas
Talk about intense! I can never keep up with this guy! John interviews entrepreneurs who are rocking it. A new podcast comes out every day. John usually asks each guest the same questions, but you never get the same answer.
Interviews on Fire:
8: Amy Porterfield of Facebook Influence
14: Corbett Barr of Think Traffic
70: Erik Fisher of Beyond the To Do List
43: Seth Godin
Eventual Millionaire – Jaime Tardy
Ever wanted to meet and talk to a millionaire? Jaime does it for fun. I love her idea. She interviews millionaires weekly and asks them how did they arrive to their success. You may be surprised by what these rich guys say.
Look like a Million Bucks episodes:
The Entreleadership Podcast – Chris Hogan
This was my first podcast to subscribe to and it remains one of my top favorites. Every two weeks, Chris interviews our nation’s top leaders who are also entrepreneurs. These interviews are spectacular as guests share their incredible wisdom into every topic that is business.
Start with Why – Simon Sinek
Financial Peace – Daniel Lapin
Marketing – Robin Robins
Inspiration – Jenn Lim
Decision Making – Jim Collins
In the Loop with Andy Andrews – Andy Andrews and Robert D. Smith
This is my off-the-wall leadership podcast. Andy never prepares for this, but his wisdom is infinitely valuable. This weekly podcast is a must for any leader who has a desire to think through problems. Andy is great at slowing down a problem and thinking through why the problem exists. He teaches people “How to Think”, not “What to Think”
Podcasts that make you think:
#87 – How to communite with teenagers
#69 – The Art of Goal Setting
#56 – Intention vs. Action
Career Tools/Manager Tools – Mark Horstman and Wendy Wilhelm
This is the BEST podcast for how to do anything in your career, whether you’re starting or leading. I absolutely love Mark’s “I don’t care what you think, I’m right” attitude. He may come across as a know-it-all, but trust me, he knows a lot. They have a great structure and provide HIGHLY valuable content.
Podcasts that I’ve Listened to More than 3 times:
Resumes for Graduates
Dealing with Colleagues Who Don’t Pull Their Weight
Systematic Career Document
Attending a Conference
Disagreeing with Your Boss
Building a Network
The School of Greatness – Lewis Howes
GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND DO SOMETHING! Lewis the motivational guru, once NFL star turned entrepreneur, who motivates me to make something amazing. He weekly interviews sons and daughters of Greatness. His story and the stories of others, make me wanna stand up and shout. Usually I do. Except when in cars.
Interviews of Greatness
Kyle Maynard- No excuses approach to success
How to Live an Unreal Life: Burn Fat and Have More Sex
Tim Ferriss on Meta Learning and Living the Good Life
LDRLB (Leader Lab) – David Burkus
David is the “Professor” of Leadership. He pumps out bi-monthly interviews with leaders across the globe. These are shorter interviews, but the content never suffers. These are great introduction into leaders’ minds and how they operate.
There’s too many more… I left out Chris Brogan because it’s 1:30AM. Please forgive me,
I wanted to keep writing and sharing the podcasts that change me, but my hands hurt.
What life-changing podcasts do you listen to? What is the number 1 podcast you recommend to friends? What ones did I leave out that should be listed?
