There’s a lot of bad news these days!  While it’s important to stay up-to-date, it’s easy to get dragged down by current events.  As a supply chain headhunter, I face a lot of challenges at work, so I need to start each day with a positive mindset.  I often listen to podcasts when I’m driving, out for a walk, or doing routine task like cooking or gardening.

I posted a list of my favourite podcasts nearly 2 years ago, but there are a lot of new podcasts I’ve discovered since.   If you like podcasts with substance that have a positive spin, you might like my list.  Help me add to this list by posting your favourite podcasts in the comments!

Here they are, in no particular order:

Tom Bilyeu – Impact Theory – Tom is a filmmaker and serial entrepreneur who co-founded the billion dollar brand Quest Nutrition.  Through the Impact Theory podcast he focuses on building a growth mindset.  He has some fantastic interviews with the world’s highest achievers.  Typically about 40-60 minutes.  https://impacttheory.com/episodes/

Brendon Burchard – The Brendon Show – Brendon is a leading high performance coach and author.  His podcast format is pretty straightforward: it’s just Brendon, sharing his insights and advice on a broad range of subjects on his excellent 10-20 minute podcasts.  https://brendon.com/podcast/

Patrick Lencioni – At the Table with Patrick Lencioni – Pat is a business consultant and author.  I’ve read 3 of his books which were all fantastic.  I just discovered his podcast last week, and so far I’m really enjoying it.  On this podcast, Pat has casual discussions with business leaders on the subjects of leadership, teamwork and organizational health.  https://www.tablegroup.com/at-the-table/

Rob Dial – The Mindset Mentor – Kind of similar to Brendon Burchard, Rob has a very straightforward podcast, it’s just Rob giving advice on life, mindset, mastering your emotions, other great subjects.  His podcasts are typically about 10-15 minutes in length.  https://robdial.com/podcast/

Craig Groeschel – Craig Groeschel Leadership Podcast – Craig is Senior Pastor of Life.Church, but this is not a religious podcast.  Craig has some really interesting podcasts, with a combination of solo podcasts and interviews.  He covers a range of leadership-related topics including negotiation, problem solving, energy management.  About 20-40 minutes per episode.  https://www.life.church/leadershippodcast/

Have I missed a podcast that deserves to be on the list? Let me know in the comments.
