Leaders are generous learners, seeking out new ways to grow while sharing their learning with others.

And podcasts are one of my favorite ways to do this! 🤓

Here are my Top 10 favorite October leadership podcasts that inspired & challenged me.

Read through individually or SPOILER ALERT, you can skip to the end for a curated playlist of all ten!


1. Ted Talks Daily: The secret ingredients of great hospitality
