In addition to listening to the morning news, we enjoy podcasts during our morning commutes to Empire Essential Group in order to stay informed and learn about a subject of interest in detail. There are podcasts on leadership, podcasts on productivity, and more. Here are a few team favorites:
• See Something Say Something: It can be hard to imagine what life is like for someone different than you, but building understanding and empathy is a core leadership skill. In this podcast, the producers discuss what it’s really like to be Muslim in America without getting too heavily into politics.
• A16Z: If you love technology and want to stay on top of the latest trends, this podcast lets you listen to the thoughts of leaders in different sectors as they discuss their latest finds and how they think technology will shape the world. Since one key goal of Empire Essential Group is to stay on top of changes in tech, our team really finds this podcast useful.
• TED Radio Hour: Love the clean format of TED Talks and want to take a deeper dive into a subject? This podcast brings together talks and conversations on a subject to give listeners a comprehensive overview of the area under discussion.
Recommend your favorite podcast to a colleague and listen to the suggestions of others during your commute. This is a great way to open conversation and can lead in some surprising directions.
