It’s not an easy skill to have, and there are many ways to go about leadership, since everyone responds to different actions in different ways. This podcast, with over 294 episodes, interviews leaders and discusses their techniques and success stories.

Part of entering the real world is being aware of those around you. Opening your mind to learning a little bit about everything can help. TED Radio offers great insights into the world you’re entering while you learn to be more aware of the people you share it with.
