    Pastor Craig Groeschel continues to deliver captivating content based on religious views, yet able to be transferred to any worldview. As a member of the Life.Church family (go Team LC!), I was led to this podcast where Pastor Craig expands on some of his messages from a leadership perspective. Not only does he expand on parts of his weekly church message, but he also incorporates guest episodes and other perspectives that open the mind and heart to new ideas that can be fine tuned for leaders anywhere! I am an aspiring school counselor and I have had so many takeaways that I cannot wait to put to use in my future career. Keep up the awesome work Pastor Craig and team!

    Actionable, inspiring leadership coaching
    Since following the podcast, Craig Groeschel has become a primary source of leadership learning and coaching for me. Every episode provides actionable and inspiring content that makes me want to be a better leader and shows me the path to grow. I have needed this content to help me stay the course during these most challenging pandemic years. I am deeply appreciative of the content you provide for the good of all and for free. Thank you.

    Best leadership mentoring
    This podcast is packed full of “mic drop” moments. Be prepared to feel as if every word he says you want to write down and take notes on. Truly invaluable leadership coaching. I do leadership coaching as a big portion of my job and I use the tools Craig shares in his episodes regularly! This feels like content you should be paying for, grateful for it!

    Being a better leader
    Thank you for challenging me to think about how I lead and when to let go. Your podcast has become a greatly anticipated habit. I soak up important and life leading nuggets from every episode. I’m going online today to order the leaders guide. Thank you!!
  • Josh Chick- Reliable
    Outstanding perspective with practical steps towards improving leadership!
    I am a business owner with nearly 45 employees. I have great natural leadership qualities but with the level of growth our business is experiencing I am constantly evaluating my team and my own leadership qualities to see where we can improve. I have listened to “Lead like it Matters” Part 1 and 2 at least 3x each for the past two days and it has been so helpful! I have assigned each of my leaders the task to listen to each of these episodes to aid in their leadership development! Strongly recommend listening to this channel!

    Thirst for the tried and true.
    Craig is my local pastor, I love this home. I’ve been fed and lead in so many times where I was certain I wouldn’t see the morning. I have a huge story(often I’m thankful for it often I’m not), that many of those who also follow Craig, guided me home every time the dark tried to shut out the light. I started listening to this podcast when one of the leaders of True North Ministries, James, talked me into listening in. I’ve been thirsty for the tried and true road from those who are lead and gifted to guide the rest of us into becoming a better person and leader. I’ve found rescue here. I’ve been given a wonderful opportunity at feeling fathered by good men and mothered by incredible women when I didn’t and still don’t have that in my personal life. Thank you for taking the time to truly lead. Means the world to me to have access to this teaching!

    Love this podcast
    I have been listening to this podcast for a couple of years and I always learn something new and have a new tool to use in my everyday life. I also love the format, and the length is good for a quick little tidbit of information. Thanks Craig! Keep up the good work.
  • Lara Allen
    Full of practical tips I can do immediately
    This episode with Vanessa Van Edwards was hands-down the most practical, usable podcast I’ve listen to. I went straight to the website to get the notes because I am going to use so many of these tips with my team in the next week.

    Leadership School
    I am a Founder of a nonprofit home for young women aging out of foster care or facing homelessness. I try to listen to a leadership podcast each week and implement something from it. I’m thankful to have this free resource available to help me grow and learn from experienced Christian leaders! The podcasts are like having your own personal coaching sessions!

    He is my mentor but he doesn’t know it. Lol
    This is an intentional teaching and it will take you out of the comfort zone. You will never regret to be part of this community. This podcast represent a community that want to make the invisible God visible. Thanks Craig!!

    Highly Recommend
    I usually listen to a new episode of this podcast each week during my commute to work. My full time job is a terminal manager for a trucking company and I also serve as the Young Families Pastor at our local church. I’ve found this podcast to be very practical , informational, and useful in my roles as a manager and a Pastor.
  • Barkdaddy
    Thanks, Craig
    During my 30 minute commute to my job I am able to get in two leadership podcasts (to work and then back home). The content is presented clearly, concisely, and practically. I am able to get bite size coaching during my commute. This podcast has been extremely helpful to me as I lead my respective ministry at our church. Not to mention, our team is also reading your “Lead Like ‘It’ Matters” book. Thanks, Craig!

    Leadership that Matters
    If you want to learn how to lead in a way that matters, this is the stop for you.

    My Favorite Leadership Podcast !!!!!!
    Thank you Craig for churning out such short and impactful teachings on Leadership and exposing your listeners to a diverse spectrum leaders sharing from wealth of knowledge . So much to learn from each leader across gender and age . From core ministry to Christain business leaders. There seems to be an intentionality to showcase both female and male leaders . Christain Caine,Mike Todd,Sadie Robertson ,Ramsey and our dear Sage ;John Maxwell. I will like to specially thank Shawn Johnson on his session on Attacking Anxiety in Leadership which undoubtedly is the most powerful session to date. Love to Amy and yes,thank you also for the YouVerion Bible app . Feedback :I tried to donate from my home country Nigeria and have been unable to do so. Tara Feladurotoye , Nigeria

    Practical leadership advice for physicians
    Craig has great leader ship advice for all occupations. As physicians we need people like this leadership team to guide us in the medical world now more than ever. this includes hospital, clinical, and the medical schools and residencies. Thank you for the information and great show notes that follow.

    Favorite day of the month
    Love your content. How you organize your topics and make it flow is priceless. This should be on every leaders top 3 must listen monthly. Thankful for the guidance you given me since I started listening! There hasn’t been an episode I have not shared with a friend or fellow leader. Amazing stuff!

    Always Motivational and Spot On!
    Just love everything about your style of interviews and thoughtful advice. I hope to be interviewed by you one day.....on my way! :) I'm about to publish a daily devotional on how to put alcohol to the side for 12 weeks. :)

    My Favorite
    This podcast has truly taught me and encouraged me to do and be more as a leader.
  • SSG Jonathan Smith
    Best leadership advice you will ever find.
    I am a Non Commissioned Officer in the US Army and I listen to this podcast every week. I use these skills and advice when leading my soldiers and I’ve seen that good, authentic leadership truly does make a difference. It is true that people would rather follow a leader that is always real than a leader that is always right. Thanks Craig for all the work you put into bringing this content.
  • kzehfuss
    If I had to pick 1 podcast, this would be it
    I likePodcasts and I listen to the most famous ones including Lewis Howes, Tim Ferriss, Huberman Lab, etc. respect for those people, but none of them can come close to what Craig Groeschel has done. I did not know of him prior to finding his podcast. But he is a master of leadership. Absolutely the kind of person I would like to work for. His podcast are short, concise, and focused on being helpful. Well done everyone. Leading with integrity and so many other lessons have been learned.

    The Best Podcast for Career Growth
    I really don’t listen to any podcasts, but I listen to the Craig Groeschel leadership podcast religiously because it unpacks such helpful and awesome material briefly but wholly. My idea of my leadership has made a 180 and has made me so much better.

    Highly Recommended Podcast
    This podcast is great to anyone that is looking to improve their leadership. I just started listening, and it has already opened my eyes up to the possible deficiencies I’m my leadership. (I play on a basketball team that I’m the main vocal leader of the team) This podcast has shown me how to grow and get better, and now I can be more prepared for next season!
  • MKuha
    Thanks so much for the great info. that inspires me as a leader. I appreciate that this is offered for free to all of us. It’s invaluable.
  • Bible Piper
    Learned more in the last 3 months
    I’m at a point in my life where I am a sponge for information. I have learned so much about leadership in the last 3 months than my entire 9 year military career. I wish I had leaders that represent what Pastor Craig talks about. But it gives me an opportunity to make myself that leader.
  • Brian Bentler
    BEST PODCAST EVER!!! - Thank you Craig!
    Craig, thank you so much for generously giving of your time to invest in leaders throughout the world! I spent the last 5 years under leaders who did not understand or apply the principles of your teachings and it limited my leadership potential and natural, God-given giftings. I felt like I was missing something and your podcast has put exact words to it. The best way to empower your employees is the give them more responsibility, clear vision and direction, and leadership opportunities - it’s at that point that they will develop and flourish. Frustrated by poor leadership, I decided to go out on my own to create Boise Landscape Design, which does exactly what you teach - empower others, provide clear vision and process, and exceed the customers’ expectations. Each time I listen to your podcast I learn something new about the latent leadership skills within me, learn practical tools that I can implement everyday, and experience the hope, joy, and passion that our Creator has instilled within me. God bless you for your sacrifice and service to the body of Christ and the business world! If you are ever in need of a landscape design to remodel or update your yard, I would love to bless you with a free design as a thank you for all your hard work. God bless! #craiggroeschel

    Leasing after crisis
    Was sent the two leading after crisis episodes by one of my board members. It was extremely helpful in realizing I am depleted. Promptly shared it with my leadership team.

    Battling Anxiety Episode 111 with Shawn.J
    What an incredible and surprising message. I went in listening to this leadership podcast today hoping to gain more material in strengthening my leader ship role in my own business, and I came out realizing that I had some significant signs of anxiety during some really difficult times in my life. all I can do now is just thank Jesus for saving me time and time again and feel so blessed for this podcast and this message, that it showed me things that I had no idea were anxiety and things that I can look forward to working on to strengthen my fight. Thank you for sharing. Life changing!
  • TaraStriet
    Love the transparency!
    So glad I found Craig’s podcast. I love this new wave of pastors sharing their different experiences! I recently bought a business and have been struggling with some anxiety and depression, and just so happened that TODAYS new episode was about just that (May 2022). It was so helpful and encouraging. “You are enough. AND you are broken. You can be both.” 🤯 cue the tears!! Thank you again- love the podcast and resources!
