New Episode | A Podcast Sneak Peak Into What Top Leaders Are Saying About Leadership Today

Ever wish you could have a conversation with top leaders about the issues that matter most in day to day leadership?

So do I.

Which is why I’m launching my new leadership podcast.

That’s exactly what it’s about, and it’s designed to help you lead like never before.

Today I have sneak peak episode preview for you featuring short clips with some of the leaders you’ll hear from in the first few months of the podcast. Just scroll to the bottom or jump on over to iTunes to listen.

And some new artwork for the podcast below. Hope you like it…thank for ALL the input from earlier subscribers. This was your fave hands down.


Clips From Top Leaders

In today’s episode, you’ll hear clips from Andy Stanley, Casey Graham, Jeff Henderson, Ron Edmondson, Rich Birch and more.

I hope this gives you a preview of some of the great conversations to come!


Episode 1 with Andy Stanley Launches Tuesday, September 9th

The first episode, featuring a 30 minute interview with Andy Stanley, goes live next Tuesday, September 9th.

In it, Andy talks about

  • how he keeps growing as a leader
  • where his message ideas come from
  • why he thinks North Point has been so successful
  • his view on other communicators re-preaching his series and content
  • how he’s had to adapt his ministry approach to a changing culture.

It’s a fascinating conversation I think you and your team will love.

5 Things Long Term Leaders Master (And Quitters Never Do)

Very rarely does success come from jumping from one venture to another every few years.

And very rarely does long term impact happen from short term tenure.

And yet in ministry and in life, people often jump from venture to venture or church to church hoping the next fit is better than the last fit, only to be perpetually disappointed.

One of the things that characterizes most leaders who make an impact in our generation is staying power. Andy Stanley has been at North Point since he started it 19 years ago.

Rick Warren has served at Saddleback for three decades. Craig GroeschelPerry NobleSteven Furtick and so many more have all had or are working on long term ministries.


Many Leaders Leave Before Their Critical Breakthrough

In my view too many leaders leave too often before critical breakthroughs happen.

Most people who become ‘overnight’ successes have put in a decade or more before anything really note-worthy has happened.

I’m not saying leaders should never leave. In fact, here’s a post outlining 5 signs it’s time to move on.

It’s just if you go too early, you can miss out on so much.


5 Things Long Term Leaders Learn to Master

Here are 5 things every leader who stays long term learns to master:


The Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast: Preview Episode

Welcome to the first preview episode of my new Leadership Podcast!

In this ten minute teaser episode (scroll to the bottom or just jump to iTunes), I share the heart behind why I’m doing the podcast, what to expect AND I reveal the guest list for the first few months of episodes. I’m so pumped. :)


Your Early Response Has Blown Me Away! Really!

Wow! You blew me away. Seriously.

Because of YOUR support and YOUR awesomeness (and of course, because of God’s incredible grace), the podcast debuted at #1 in iTunes in the US and in Canada in both the Christianity and Religion and Spirituality categories. 

It even broke the Top 50 of ALL podcasts in the US and cracked the Top 10 of ALL podcasts in Canada. 

Are you kidding me?

Here’s the screen shot from the US iTunes rankings this week in Religion and Spirituality.

US iTunes Debut

This completely blew away all my expectations.

And it happened because

  1. You listened.
  2. You subscribed
  3. You shared.
  4. Some of you left (very kind) ratings and reviews (23 in the US iTunes store and 9 in the Canadian store – sweet!)

So you know how this works right? When someone is searching for Oprah or Buddhism, they find my podcast now too. And that’s a great thing for the Kingdom. Crazy!

What’s doubly nuts is we haven’t even really started yet. Episode 001 with Andy Stanley goes live on iTunes on Tuesday, September 9th.

So thank you. Really.

It’s Just Beginning

We haven’t got this all figured out by any stretch. So can you give this episode a listen? And let me know (in the comments):

Is the audio quality clear?

What do you think of the opener and closer?

Do you like the projected length?

Any guests you’d love to hear from?

A New Episode on Tuesday…Then the Debut

This Tuesday, September 2nd, I’ll release a second preview teaser episode with interview highlights. It’s a sneak peak of some of the amazing conversations to come.

And then the BIG debut happens on iTunes on Tuesday, September 9th when I release Episode 001—an interview with Andy Stanley.

All I can say is thanks.

The goal? To help you lead like never before.

You guys blew me away. It’s so amazing to be doing this together.
