Why did you develop Leadercast Now?

A few years ago, the number-one question that we received from people who attended the Leadercast Live event was: “What now?” Our attendees wanted to know how they could continue to develop their leadership skills – and inspire their team -- after the event.

We know that are a lot of leadership development options out there, and people have a lot to choose from. We also understand that not everyone has the time or budget to attend long-form or off-site leadership training were all busy! 

So we created a digital platform that offer real leaders and peers sharing their true stories, insights and solutions. Amazing, meaningful content like you get at Leadercast Live, PLUS MORE.

Leadercast Now is your 365-day leadership-learning that provides daily leadership inspiration and action, and helps people become Leaders Worth Following, all in five minutes or less a day!

What type of content do you have?

Leadercast Now offers powerful videos, expert e-books, articles, training series, and more. All of our content has been carefully created so we can share insights, tips, challenges, solutions, and experiences from respected leaders across all types of industries, organizations and backgrounds.

We start with short, high-impact videos. Then we reinforce the learning with action items and reflection questions that help you immediately apply the learning to your own world. Gold members can track the number of videos theyve watched and the number of action items theyve completed.

How is Leadercast Now different than TED talks?
How is this different than YouTube videos?

While there is a similarity between TED talks/YouTube and Leadercast Now in that all of them use video as primary method of communication, that is where the similarity ends.

Leadercast Now is designed from the ground up to help people learn real solutions to leadership challenges on a daily basis; to provide values-based leadership learning; and to help people become Leaders Worth Following.

TED talks and YouTube, on the other hand, cover a wide variety of topics – very few are focused on the top most-searched leadership topics or meant to provide leadership learning and development. You’ll find that  each video on the Leadercast Now platform is designed specifically around leadership learning for the time-starved individual. Short, high-impact videos are coupled with immediate action challenges to help create a bridge between learning and your real leadership challenges!

Much different than the goals of TED talks/YouTube, the goal of Leadercast Now is to ensure that each subscriber is inspired by the leadership learning, can quickly put the insights and actions to use in their own lives, and can begin to think and behave in ways that exemplify Leaders Worth Following.

How is the content organized?

Leadercast Now is guided by and focused on the belief that Leaders Worth Following think and behave differently; they are values-based; human-first; and model behaviors such as ethical leadership; clarity; bravery; simplicity, building teamwork, developing great culture, and more. To help leaders, content segments are organized around 15 key leadership topics and 7 values.  Our goal is to provide videos that offer true takeaways and meaningful actions in less than five minutes.
