Great Podcast For Talent Development Professionals

I am making a career change into talent development and was looking for some podcasts to get more familiar with the field and to get some inspiration and I stumbled across this podcast. I’ve enjoyed the episodes that I’ve listened to so far and a lot has to do with Andy, the host. He does a great job moderating his show and its clear he has a robust network of talent development professionals who come on and share their stories, best practices and insights.

I think this is a great podcast to listen to if
A) you are like me, and trying to break into the talent development field
B) already a practitioner in this space, and looking to broaden your knowledge and network of trends and insights in talent development

More than just business

This is a podcast where you think it will be all "business-y", and yes, it is. But so much of what they cover can be applied to your personal life. The ideas presented, shared by leaders from brands we all know, can really make you re-think the way you conduct your business and your life. Well worth the time.
