Podcasts have quickly become a convenient way to consume new content on any topic. Whether it’s business, faith, education, politics, or just plain fun - there’s a wide selection of podcasts to help you gain fresh insight.

Why Podcasts?

Podcasts are easily accessible and cover a wide range of topics. You are sure to find a podcast that you enjoy!

Podcasts are also easy to fit into your day. You can listen during more mundane tasks such as cleaning, cooking, exercising, or during your commute. Why not use those times to grow yourself as a leader?

What Does Christianity Have to do with Leadership?

Leadership principles such as integrity, service, vision, and innovation are all found throughout the Bible - and God is the source for all of those things.

We are called to be influencers in this world. I’m not talking about (just) Instagram influencers! God has commanded us to influence those around us with His hope, joy and love. We are called to be living ambassadors for Him.

So, guess what? That makes YOU a leader!
