A couple of years ago, I had never heard a single podcast. Now, I listen to several podcasts that STRETCH me on a regular basis thanks to the wonders of technology and the iPod. In keeping with the recent trend on The Stretched Blog, I’d like to use this Monday to provide feedback on a resource. (Last week, I reviewed The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson. And the week before, I reviewed an eBook by Michael D. Perkins – Manifesto On Being Myself.)
Today, I’m passing along my two cents on the EntreLeadership podcast. EntreLeadership is based on a book of the same name written by Dave Ramsey. The EntreLeadership podcast launched on August 17, 2011 by Dave Ramsey and his team. Since then, twelve podcasts have been published (twice every month) that have highlighted different aspects of leadership.
The podcasts vary in length between 35 and 50 minutes. Each podcast which is hosted by Chris LoCurto typically starts with an excerpt from a Dave Ramsey speech followed by interviews from various leaders. These leaders have included Jim Collins, Dan Miller, Tony Dungy, Tim Sanders, Dan Cathy, Simon Sinek, and others. Each podcast is focused on a leadership topic. The topics have included servant leadership, recognition, mission, accountability, unity, and decision-making.
I typically listen to the podcasts while I’m running or driving. Occasionally, I’ve had to pull the car over to jot down a key point or note from what I’ve just heard. The podcasts are filled with wisdom for leaders. Whether you are starting your own business, leading in your company, leading in your church, or leading in any type of organization, I would recommend checking out the EntreLeadership podcast. The podcast provides information that will inspire you and encourage you to step out and be the best leader you can be.
Do you listen to the EntreLeadership podcast? If so, what is one of your biggest take aways from what you’ve heard? What other podcasts do you recommend and listen to regularly?
