Top 10 business podcasts

I love learning new things every day. There’s always something new to discover and, sometimes, to challenge you to think differently. That’s why I love podcasts so much. They feed my brain with new information, perspectives and insights. 

And what better time to expand your knowledge with a podcast whilst enjoying the sunshine than over the summer holidays?  

Whether you’re in a tent, a plane or a sun lounger, here are some of the best podcasts I’ve listened to so far this year (in no particular order).

Dare to lead 

This episode is a two-hour, deep-dive conversation with Jim Collins on his work and how it shaped who Brene Brown is as a person, as a leader, and as a researcher. They talk about their values, shadow values, the power of curiosity, decades of grounded theory research and comparative analysis, and how he explains thirty years of research with one integrated framework called The Map. Jim’s books, including his new one, Beyond Entrepreneurship 2.0, have captured the hearts and minds of his readers and changed how we think about building and leading organizations.
