Discover Relevant, Practical Insights
Now with Coaching for Leaders Plus, I am inviting you to accelerate your learning, build your confidence, and invest more fully in developing others.
Over 75% of listeners to the Coaching for Leaders podcast are managers, executives, or business owners. More than half hold graduate degrees. And a majority of listeners have purchased three or more books in the last ninety days.
But there's one thing you likely don't have: time to integrate everything.
That's why I regularly get questions from listeners such as:
- Can you recommend the best 2-3 episodes I should listen to on delegation?
- I know you've talked on past episodes about handling tough questions — but I'm just looking for a simple roadmap to get started.
- I've been sharing the podcast episodes with my team for awhile. I'd love to hear even more from some of your guests to help us go further.
That's why I'm inviting you to join Coaching for Leaders Plus. With your membership, you will:
Develop and diversify your own leadership skills and support the professional development of others through my practical guidance on relevant topics.
Topic Guides include videos from me on how to integrate past episodes, a detailed roadmap and key points to follow, and questions for your own reflection.
Accelerate your learning by receiving my written insights on how to integrate the wisdom of multiple experts.
I'm leveraging the knowledge and experience from over a decade of expert interviews in my monthly articles. I'm writing these to help you identify the most useful starting points on critical leadership situations.
Build your confidence by hearing even more insight from the experts who appear on the podcast.
Once a month, I'm sharing a video recording with you of a guest expert who's answered live questions from a panel of our Academy and Pro members. Plus, full access to years of prior recordings.
What the Experts Are Saying
Dave is the most gracious of teachers. Not only is he brilliant at teasing out insights from his guests on his acclaimed podcast, he has the rare gift of sharing insights through a combination of his wisdom and generosity. If you're looking to go beyond the obvious, this might well be the resource you're looking for.”
“The response I got from listeners when I appeared on the Coaching for Leaders podcast was incredible. They made clear they learned not only from Dave's and my conversation but from all of the episodes in the archive. It is a treasure trove for managers and leaders.”
Dave's insights have provided me with invaluable guidance in the most difficult challenges in my career. What impresses me the most about Dave is that even though he's one of the leading voices on the subject, he's always learning more from experts in the field, which makes his programs, resources, and content even more practical.”
Coaching for Leaders is not just valuable; It's been critical to the success of many people I've talked to. They share in depth stories about how something that they got from Dave made a turning point impact in their life or their work.”
Practical Guidance on Key Topics
Over 40,000 listeners already utilize the free membership to search for interviews by topic, download my reading highlights and notes, learn from audio courses, and search my personal library. Thousands of links on the website begs this question: where's the best place to start?
That's why I've crafted Topic Guides as a key feature of Coaching for Leaders Plus to help accelerate your learning and provide a simple and useful framework to develop others.
I have researched the most common topic suggestions and created Topic Guides to address common questions from listeners, such as:
- How do I hold people accountable?
- What are the best ways to connect with hybrid and remote employees?
- How do I build a network outside of my organization?
In each Topic Guide, I'm providing a brief video introduction to the topic, recommending the best 3-5 episodes to review, highlighting the key points relevant to each topic, and providing detailed reflection questions. Use the Topic Guides for your own development – and as a starting point for professional development conversations with employees, colleagues, or clients.Join $120 Annually
Dave's Integration of Research and Practice
Dave's Integration of Research and Practice
Each time you listen to the podcast, you hear me zero in with an expert on a useful framework for a particular aspect of leadership. You also hear me cross-reference related episodes at the end of conversations.
Almost every effective leader today needs a broad range of skills to handle many, dynamic situations. Yet, there's rarely time on the podcast for me to offer a detailed analysis and integration across multiple experts on key topics.
That's why I'm regularly writing long-form articles to integrate the wisdom of multiple experts and share my perspective on key topics. As part of Coaching for Leaders Plus, you'll receive monthly articles from me, delivered to your inbox, and ongoing access to past articles, searchable by topic.Join $120 Annually
Relevant Perspective From the Experts
You've heard hundreds of guest experts interviewed on the podcast. You've read their books and watched their TED talks. But have you heard their discussions with real leaders who are implementing their ideas?
Here's a past Expert Chat with Jonathan Raymond, creator of the Accountability Dial:
Once a month, our Academy and Pro members sit down with a guest expert for a conversation we call the Expert Chat. Instead of me asking the questions, members ask relevant questions on how to best utilize that expert's wisdom in their own organization.
We've already talked with Jonathan Raymond on holding people accountable (see above), Michael Bungay Stanier on how to begin, Ginger Hardage on creating an unstoppable culture, Lisa Cummings on leveraging StrengthsFinder for teams, Kwame Christian on having difficult conversations, David Marquet on asking better questions – and dozens more.
Coaching for Leaders Plus includes full access to every past Expert Chat recording and session notes – plus a new recording each month as Expert Chat events are recorded.Join $120 Annually
