Cruzeiro is the best ,

Awesome

By far my favorite podcast. 100% evidence based.

MuskieJuls ,

So applicable & relatable!!

I’m kind of obsessed with this podcast (could also be that I’m an org development nerd) Either way, Grant identifies challenges & issues that affect the majority of organizations & offers such interesting examples in his treatment of the topic. Love how the sponsors/ads are connected & integrated. My new favorite!

Articulate, discriminating and real. Not just for work!

I find the content has life value, not just work. I started at a current episode and jumped back to listen to “how to like criticism”. No regrets.
