When it comes to career development, there are many resources at your disposal to take your career to the next level. Courses, online training, books and podcasts are most popular for their accessibility and effectiveness. Podcasts are especially great for busy professionals looking to advance their careers because they’re convenient to listen to while on the go or while multitasking.

We recently asked our executives for their top podcast advice for career growth.

Here are their responses…

John Schembari, Senior Education Director

ofI’ve been lucky because there are many quality niche podcasts in my field of teaching, leadership, and of my favorites is pedagogy worship Because these themes apply across the spectrum of K16 education (ie, strategies that can be quickly implemented in most classrooms the next day).

I think the bigger question, given how many high-quality podcasts there are across industries, and because they tend to be ethereal, at least in my field, is “what type of podcast do I prefer for professional development?”

I look for the following in professional development podcasts:

  1. An easy gain – something I can immediately use in my practice.
  2. A podcast guest/host that I can relate to/approachable.
  3. A podcast that provides related resources for more information.
  4. Podcasts that mention other podcasts in the space – collaborate not compete.
  5. Each episode of the podcast focuses on a specific topic.
  6. Podcasts are conversations, not monologues.
  7. A podcast that might make me a future guest.

Outside of executive panels with Work It Daily, my favorite professional podcast is Kelly Merbler.her podcast is called coffee with kelly.

coffee with kelly Meetings are held every Friday from 8:00 am to 9:00 am Occasionally, meetings are held on Fridays at 11:30 am to accommodate some West Coast attendees.

Kelly Merbler started the podcast three years ago in response to the shutdown of the country due to COVID-19. The call started with five women who wanted to keep in touch during the national shutdown.

Friday’s conference call had grown to more than 80 participants. There are women and men from all walks of life. They also reached several countries.

Kelly also has a Slack channel to keep track of podcast recordings, job boards, past and upcoming events, and more.

I don’t remember how I met Kelly – our moms both died of Alzheimer’s. At Christmas, she goes to the nursing home where her mother lives and visits all the patients. These visits bring smiles and laughter to many patients.

As far as the deal goes, Kelly is a leadership development consultant and a motivational speaker who can rally any crowd. Podcast topics range from guest motivational speakers for already started businesses to job search ideas.

I love Kelly Merbler because she has so much energy and love for people. Her heart is in a beautiful place. I am so proud to be a part of her tribe!

bravery with brian johnson.

That being said, the daily podcasts made up of what Brian calls “+1’s” are just the tip of the iceberg.

Many personal and professional development podcasts seem to contain different “tips” that are shared with listeners as ways to solve life or business challenges on a tactical basis.

Brian is, in the truest sense of the word, a philosopher (i.e., someone who both studies “philosophy” and implements it on a minute-by-minute basis).So instead of simply throwing ideas out as everyday “+1’s,” he incorporates these and other information he distills from ancient and modern ways of thinking into his own comprehensive philosophy (see his website League of Legends).

As someone who seeks practicality, “adult” wisdom, and “fit-for-purpose” things, I’ve found it to be – dare I say it – a particularly useful source of enlightenment.

Mark Taylor Over 20 years of risk, technology and product management experience in global and regional financial services firms in the UK and US. He has managed over 40 teams, successfully resolved over 100 regulatory issues and saved the company over $15 million.
