As CEOs and business leaders, the mere thought of adding something else to the sacred “must do” list can be exhausting. While we seek continued growth and new learning, it can be overwhelming with our already busy schedules. Books, articles, blogs, webinars (and the like) can suck valuable time from an over-packed schedules, and often without adding much value.
For those who are fueled by new ideas, thought leaders, and constant improvement, podcasts are an excellent alternative to take in new learning on a regular basis without pushing the envelope of your already busy schedule. The beauty of Podcasts is that they can be listened to while on your commute or even in the shower while working through your morning routine.
Three Podcasts that we love for CEO’s, business owners, and business leaders are included below. Each features interviews with business, finance, systems, marketing, and leadership experts and authors. Most are 15-30 minutes, a perfect length for your commute or as a background to your morning routine.
The EntreLeadership Podcast
They help business owners become better leaders. Their membership community equips you to grow yourself, your team and your profits. Born from Dave Ramsey’s best selling business leadership book, EntreLeadership, this powerful podcast features a range of topics for business leaders including communication, culture, goals, growth, leadership, money, time, and personnel.
Building a StoryBrand
Based on their podcast description, you would think all they cover is marketing. But that’s not the case at all. While their marketing advice and discussions are the best you’ll find, host (and selling author) Donald Miller, interviews a wide range of business leaders and experts in an array of other relevant topics for CEOs. It’s light in style, but deep in content. It’s one not to miss if you are looking to grow your business, improve your culture, and clarify your business message.
Harvard Business Review Idea Cast
Brought to you by the Harvard Business Review, this podcasts interviews business leaders and heavy-weights. The beauty of the podcast is that each episode is short, 10-12 minutes tops. It entertains, enlightens, and educates with the goal of growing you as a business leader.
