Whether you listen to them on your morning commute or while you’re plugging away at your desk, there’s no doubt that podcasts are a great way to learn something new in an entertaining way.
And thanks to the massive growth in the format, there are podcasts on a plethora of topics, including several surrounding the workplace.
This time around we’re looking at workplace innovation. So, have a read, click through to the links, and listen to whichever ones pique your interest.
Produced by work collaboration app Slack, Work in Progress focuses on “the meaning and identity we find in work”.
Hosted by Dan Misener, the show aims to share stories of “personal ambition and debilitating insecurities, great successes and abject failures”.
Each episode also includes a feature detailing the innovative ways people use Slack.
Hosted by Mike Petrusky, The Facility Management Innovator Podcast brings together industry leaders to talk about workplace trends, challenges, and the future of the built environment.
The podcast covers effective marketing and sales strategies, resources available to facility managers, and opportunities for collaboration in the FM community.
A weekly show, The Future of Work Podcast sees futurist Jacob Morgan interviewing senior executives and business leaders around the world on the future of work.
Given that innovation is all about looking toward — and helping create — the future, it’s a great resource for getting ideas on why the world of work is changing, how it’s changing, and what you and your organisation need to do about it.
Produced by Australian radio station ABC, Best Practice claims to bring you the “big ideas in workplace culture, leadership, innovation and trends”.
Presented by Richard Aedy, the show is aimed at bosses and workers alike and considers everything from workplace culture, to trends and ethics.
Innovation Ecosystem was created specifically to help organisations and leaders improve their innovation results.
Hosts Mark Bidwell and Iain Fitzpatrick do this by deconstructing the “world-class performance of remarkable and thought-provoking people on the topics of innovation, leadership and change in the worlds of business, academia and sports”.
While the guests on each episode may not always be known to you, the lessons learned from them are almost always universally applicable.
Ask anyone where the global centre of innovation lies and they’ll most likely point to Silicon Valley.
It makes sense too. So many of the products and services we use on a daily basis have their origin in this comparatively small strip of land on the US’ West Coast.
Inside/Outside, hosted by Brian Ardinger and Josh Berry, gives listeners insight into how some of the most successful companies in “The Valley” have built their innovative cultures and what lessons can be taken from them.
