As managers we lead busy lives!
Between working from home or in the office, potentially managing a remote team and fitting in time to consistently work on personal growth becomes a challenge – especially when you’re already juggling the pressures of work, family, health, stress of the current world situation and just generally trying to enjoy life.
However, one of the easiest ways for busy people to add an extra dose of education to their daily routine is through podcasts! Whether it’s on your commute or at the gym, finding 30 minutes to listen to a podcast will have a positive impact on your leadership/management style.
