John and his incredibler guests shine the brightest of lights on what it means to be a leader!

Thanks for putting out such a robust resource John - keep up the great work!
John Eades he cares listeners growth
Just by his voice and how he explains things you can tell he truly cares about his listeners growth in leadership. I have listened to so many leadership podcast because I want to continue to grow but none of those posed cast spreads the messages like John Eades. With his podcast it continues to inspire me and not forget why my leadership development is so important.
Excellent-Just One Criticism
This is an excellent podcast and I have gained some great insights into leadership. My only criticism is that there are times in episodes, the Bob Tiede one comes to mind, where John interrupts the guest in the middle of his response to ask another question. I understand there are time constraints sometimes but I think it would be better to let someone finish their thought. Again, overall it is a tremendous podcast.
