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.
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!
Top 5 Christian Leadership Podcasts
We’ve narrowed it down to 5 Leadership Podcasts for you to check out. We think that at least one of these may be a fit for you as you learn to be a better leader.
While some of these hosts are pastors, their podcasts are not only for pastors. They share leadership insights for those leading in secular arenas, as well.
Craig Groeschel (pastor of Life.Church with 30 campuses and over 85,000 attendees) consistently shares content that can be personally applicable. Each episode contains coaching you can readily apply to your leadership strategy. You learn how to lead yourself and your team, maximize your time, grow other leaders and increase your organization.
Andy Stanley’s (pastor of North Point Community Church, with 6 campuses and 38,000 attendees in the Atlanta area) goal for this podcast is to help leaders go farther, faster. His practical teaching will give you insights and get you thinking about how you can be a more effective leader.
If you’re not currently the leader “in charge” of your organization, Andy has a great two-part episode on his podcast from May 2014 called, “How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge.” It’s a great place to start if you’re not the main leader of your workplace or organization.
