Recommended podcasts to enhance your professional development

Effective leadership requires a commitment to continuous learning. Leaders can stay up-to-date with industry trends and best practices by constantly acquiring new knowledge and skills. It leads to personal and professional growth, improving critical thinking skills, and enhancing problem-solving abilities. Moreover, leaders who prioritize continuous learning set a positive example for their team members, inspiring them to seek opportunities for growth and development. Ultimately, investing in continuous learning can help leaders adapt to changing circumstances, lead their teams successfully, and achieve long-term success.  During last month’s CAPIO Leadership Summit, I shared a list of my favorite leadership and professional growth podcasts along with a list of my favorite books on leadership.  Below are some of my favorite podcasts.  View my full professional development reading list here.
