Actionable advice

If you’re looking to be a better leader, start with the trilogy and keep going! Wish I would have found this before my first manager role.
The advice is simple, easy to understand and they provide step by step instructions on how to implement.
You won’t find better, but you may pay more. 😂

Disappointed Former Listener/Member

I used to love this podcast for the actionable content, thoughtful structure and forward-looking insight. Those days are, regrettably, long gone. The new hosts are arrogant, condescending. They fill the first 90% of the episode with rude or irrelevant fluff before getting to solid content. That dynamic is puzzling at best. You’d expect a podcast on management to be well-managed and professional with coherent material. Or at least, that’s what I expect. I’ve canceled my membership and will now steer clear of this podcast.

Tone and cadence makes it difficult to listen

I understand fluffing up the podcast. I don’t mind it in itself. But you can tell from the tone and cadence how fake it is. I point this out because I believe the messages in there are great! But I have difficulty listening to it and it certainly makes me wonder if a paid membership means needing to suffer through more 30 minutes of dialogue that pains me. And doing that just more often for 30 seconds of useful content.
