These days, it seems there’s a podcast for every topic that exists, which is great news if you are a life coach looking for guidance, inspiration, and encouragement for your chosen career path. Not surprisingly, many coaches find that they are much more effective at helping others when they have taken the time to fill up their own value bank, and podcasts have become a popular source for doing exactly that.
If you are looking for a way to stay at the top of your game, then you will love the four podcasts discussed here today. They are all easily accessible, topic-specific, and provide a never-ending supply of nuggets of wisdom at your fingertips. The best part? They’re all completely free.
How Podcasts Can Be a Game-Changer For Your Career
As a life coach, you wear many hats.
You are an entrepreneur, counselor, authority figure, and dozen of other roles you serve as part of this career. You are frequently expected to have the answers that others do not. You are also expected to maintain a positive attitude and overall strength and confidence that you can model and teach to others. But, just like anybody else, you also need a source of support, guidance, and motivation that you can turn to whenever you need it.
Podcasts have been a godsend to so many. Life coaches benefit from the many perspectives that are offered in this format. Depending on your interests and values, you can create playlists that are coaching specific, or choose a combination of topics that will allow you to refine your skills and knowledge. There is always something new to learn and the more time we invest in understanding ourselves, others, and the world around us, the better we can serve our clients. Podcasts are an amazing (and did I mention free?) way to master our craft as a life coach.
