The more I dive into learning, the more I see the value of podcasts as a leader’s secret weapon for leadership development. Last year, I listened to more podcasts than ever before, and it sparked new ideas for building my personal leadership.

John Maxwell said,
Leadership is influence, nothing more nothing less.
If leadership is influence then one question we must ask ourselves is, what or who is shaping our direction. For me, I choose to surround myself with leaders who are visionary, strategic, outside-the-box thinkers and personal mentors
Additionally, I am influenced by the books and podcasts.
I believe our growth as leaders is never a done deal; we must be continually growing. John Maxwell talks about the Law of the Lid.
The Law of the Lid states that our leadership will only grow to the capacity we have. For example, if the ability of a leader is a three (3) or four (4), they may only grow to be a five (5) or six (6).
However, if a leader's capacity is a seven (7) or eight (8), they have the ability to reach a nine (9) or ten (10).
Which leader would you rather be or follow?
I want to be a nine or ten level leader, but it takes work, humility, and perseverance. I currently have 17 podcasts in my feed, and they span the genres of leadership, marketing, communication, business, technology, education, and productivity.
