The Best Leadership Podcasts To Listen To in 2020

Leadership is two-fold, the leadership you instill on others and self-leadership.  The best way to inspire and develop others starts by developing yourself.  Continued investment in your personal growth will help you become a better leader.  What if you don’t have time to read a library of leadership books?  A great alternative is to listen to podcasts that give you bite-size information while you are on the go.  This post shares some of the best leadership podcasts out there today.


I have a whole selection of podcasts that I listen to on a regular basis.  A lot more that I downloaded but eventually deleted from my subscription list.


Below are some of the best Podcasts to help you with your leadership and personal development journey.  The podcasts below still remain some of my favorites despite all the host of options out there.


The Best Leadership Podcasts for 2020:


The EntreLeadership Podcast hosted by Ken Coleman

The show is based on Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership book and community.


Features lively discussions and tips on leadership and business by some of the top minds in the business, like Mark Cuban, Seth Godin, Jim Collins, and Simon Sinek.  They often have bonus materials with great cheat sheets and guides that go well with the topic of the show.



The LEADx Leadership Show with Kevin Kruse

I was first introduced to Kevin Kruse through his book, “Employee Engagement for Everyone”.  When I found his podcast, I was curious and listened to a few episodes.  I was pleasantly surprised.  I like the length of the show which is perfect for traveling to the office.


Kevin interviews top leadership experts and business executives and with each episode, you are left with smart career advice and management tips.


At the end of each episode, he challenges the interviewee on how his listeners can get 1% better every single day.



The Tony Robbins Podcast

Not only is Tony Robbins an Entrepreneur, best-selling author, but the Nation’s #1 Life and Business Strategist.  He is probably one of the world’s leading authorities on Leadership and Personal Development.


People spend thousands of dollars for a chance to hear him speak.  This podcast gives listeners a chance to hear his strategies and tactics for free.  In addition to excerpts from his signature events and other exclusive, never before released audio content, Tony and his team also conduct interviews with masterminds.


“Why live an ordinary life, when you can live an extraordinary one?”

The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes

Lewis’ podcast regularly appears in the Top 50 of all iTunes podcasts and gets downloaded over 1 million times per month.


Episodes range from interviews with game-changers in entrepreneurship, health, athletics, mindset, and relationships, to solo rounds with the host.


What I like about Lewis is that he is incredibly authentic and I believe he truly wants to help people achieve their greatness.

Dave Stachowiak is the founder and host of Coaching for Leaders.  This shows help listeners develop the skills required to become leaders.


Topics include:

  • How to better communicate with the people you lead.
  • How to coach others in a way that brings out their best.
  • Where to start as a new leader.

The John Maxwell Leadership Podcast

The John Maxwell Leadership Podcast is a regular examination of what it means to be a transformational leader—someone who daily influences people to think, speak, and act to make a positive difference in their lives and in the lives of others. This podcast will teach you the principles, practices, and process of becoming a transformational leader because leadership isn’t an event—it’s an uphill journey.


For those of you who know or have read his books, you will not be disappointed.  The tools he provides for downloads are great and make the learning journey easy.
