Podcast Synopsis:

Looking for a way to incorporate some powerful professional development into your day? Use your daily commute and download Coaching for Leaders with Dave Stachowiak. As Stachowiak, with years of leadership at Dale Carnegie and his own global leadership academy states, "Leaders aren't born, they're made." These podcasts are a great start. 

Valued by many, this 5-star podcast is downloaded 150,000 times monthly by leaders in all fields interested in conversations with best-selling authors and in learning the latest research. Dave's interviews and guests consistently introduce new tools you can depend on daily as either a systems or instructional coach. After each podcast, your professional tool box will burst with intriguing ideas and imaginative resources. That's right on target with Dave's goal to "help leaders discover practical wisdom, build meaningful relationships and create movement for genuine results." 

Additional materials can be found at the Coaching for Leaders website. The Dashboard provides access to archived podcasts like those with Patrick Lencioni and Michael Bungay Stanier. The Resources tab links you to on-line courses, additional materials and affiliated podcasts. Don't skip the Book Notes tab where Dave shares personal highlights and notes from current best sellers in the field often before the author's interview is even podcast.

Why I Recommend This Podcast: 

Make that time spent commuting work for you. Share it with Dave Stachowiak as he provides the latest on professional development for coaches in all fields.
