Podcast Resources

In the interest of being helpful, I thought I’d take a minute a list a few of the audio resources that I find valuable.  Enjoy.

Andy Stanley Leadership Podcast – I’ve mentioned this before, but you really should be subscribed to this monthly podcast.  There are lots of ideas that make you think mixed with practical, actionable steps.  You can subscribe here.

Marcus Buckingham – Take Control of Your Career and Your Life.  This podcast has eight (8) sessions approx. 20-30 min. each that give a great overview of his teaching on strengths.  You’ll get a good “big picture” view of the information you find in his books:  First, Break All the Rules; Now, Discover Your Strengths; The One Thing You Need to Know; Go, Put Your Strengths to Work.  Subscribe to the iTunes podcast here; or, if you prefer a more in-depth approach, you can go through all the material as an online workshop, complete with downloads, here.

Quick and Dirty Tips – a new favorite of mine.  These are short podcasts (4-7 minutes) with quick, helpful tips.  There are currently about eight (8) different ones each week.  Check out the website for all the quick and dirty tips network podcasts – there’s at least one podcast that you’ll find informational or interesting.  My current favorites are:  Grammar Girl, Get-it-Done-Guy, and The Public Speaker.

Harvard Business Review (HBR) Idea Cast – These are relatively short (15-20 min) and packed with information.  The content will definitely make you use your brain.  Thanks to my friend Ryan Fitzgerald for the tip on this one.  Plus, there’s a little something for everyone, past episode topics include:  Creativity at Pixar, How to Keep your Job in a Recession, Singapore Airlines Great Customer Service, and Should Managers Have a Green Hippocratic Oath.  Subscribe now.
