You might love listening to podcasts for entertaining history lessons, true crime stories, long-form interviews, comedy or sports talk – but did you also know you can learn about leadership by listening to podcasts?
As an ambitious professional, it’s important for you to keep learning and growing your skill set. Obviously, listening to a podcast doesn’t provide the same level of learning as formal instruction or years of experience. But a good podcast can change your outlook and inspire you with ideas.
There are many podcasts out there on leadership that are worth your time. Here are six that are worth checking out.
