Andy Stanley is my Enneagram #1 spirit animal. His leadership wisdom is incredibly valuable and I’d give about anything to have coffee with him and ask allllllll of the questions. That’s obviously not happening so his monthly podcasts are the next best thing! 😆
My #1 podcast
Music Download Master
I've been listening to this podcast since the very inception many years ago. I've listened to every episode at least 3 times and often more than that. I've also shared some episodes with the Executive team in my workplace, whom I interact with regularly. The content is relevant for those working outside of the church or volunteering in a myriad of community organizations. It has helped me develop in my leadership abilities. I've also gotten great book recommendations out of it, which I often use to lead small groups in discussion at work. Andy is a great communicator, able to boil ideas down into simple, practical steps. I highly recommend it.
Content is okay but I often feel condescended to
The content of much of what Is produced on this podcast is great. The dilemma I have is, after listening to “generational diversity in the workplace,” I found both moderators to be very condescending toward members of generations who were not invited into the room.
It’s ironic these episodes were about generational diversity but ONLY featured 2 men from the same age bracket.
Like father like son

As a young married man I listened to Dr.Charles Stanley every day on the job site. His ministry was a true guiding light as a new husband then and through out my life raising children. Today, I listen to Andy using his leadership pod cast in my daily life, and, as a business consultant developing leadership within organizations. I trust Andy and his guests because I know the principles instilled in him and those that he follows. He won’t lead you astray. I look forward to hearing every one - Bob, Las Vegas, NV
bite-sized and full of amazing content. Can't wait for each new episode. Andy has real wisdom that is applicable to leadership in any industry.
Leadership and Parenting
I have been listening to Andy Stanley for quite sometime. I enjoyed his conversations up until I listened the podcast regarding the above. Andy and his wife was talking about parenting principle and the first one was "honor your mother". No mention of father. The second was " Thou shall not lie" and the third "Don't worship the devil". I agree with him on the last two principles but not the first. By saying the first principle he broke the other two principles. The first commandment with a promise is, according to "EPHESIANS 6:2 NASB“ HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER. I'm praying for him so that Holy Spirit will reveal him the truth and that he will speak only the truth according to the word of God. Father is the leader of the house and if he takes that responsibility seriously and walk with God, the rest of the things will automatically happen and God will bless the family.
Good topics- Too much fluff - Delivery lacking
I like the topics of most of the shows. I feel like there is often times just too much time spent waiting to get to the meat of the content. The first 8-9 minutes seems to be a slow build up.
I recommend making this better by getting to the topic within the first 2 minutes of the podcast. Cut out about 1/3 of the podcast that isn’t driving the narrative.
I see strong potential for this Podcast and I still value the content once I finally get to it. Stick with the initial fluff and circling around the main topic and you can find some very good information to take back to your teams.
Informational, transformational and inspirational...every time!

Andy Stanley is one of the best communicators in America. He understands leadership as well as anyone in any sphere of engagement, and he uses his gift for communication to share those complex ideas in a way that benefits all of us. Every episode is worth the time you will invest.
Great work on the leadership and parenting segment, especially part two. This was very helpful and made a ton of good points.
Loving Your Work!!
These episodes are what every aspiring leader or growth oriented professional needs.
Keep them coming!
Andy Stanley Leadership Podcast has been such an impact on my life.
This podcast has really changed my perspective and has helped me grow as a leader and a person. He provides fresh direction on how to be an influencer.
Short And Strong
My favorite thing about this podcast other than the insight is that it not too long. In the life if a leader time is a valuable commodity, Andy understands that.
Andy’s podcast allow time for self reflection. Let’s face it leadership is an old topic. Nothing is new if you have studied for a few years. The perspective shared is great....
One of the very best leadership podcasts
Andy Stanley is the real deal—as a non-profit leader I listen to a lot of leadership podcasts. This is engaging, and gives me the best, most effective ideas to apply and to grow our organization. Highly recommend
I always take something away
I try a lot of podcasts that don’t capture me and get deleted after awhile. This one is full of usable content. I listen to episodes multiple times because they are full of gold. I’m not particularly faith-based either; these lessons translate to any team.
LOVE THIS PODCAST
I look forward to it coming out every month. Wish it was more!
Better Than Seminary
This podcast has been better prep for ministry than my biblical education. So grateful for the contribution this podcast has made and the thousands that’ll be impacted just through my ministry as a result.
Always a powerful leadership truth!
I’ve been listening for almost a year now. Self-Leadership Part 2 was most recent. I was very convicted to do the activity of writing out what I would want those closest to me to say at my funeral.
Then it hit me.
It’s not just hoping what I want them to say, but realizing what am I doing NOW to influence them so that what they say is not just my hope, but a reality.
I love anything by Andy Stanley and this is no different. He hits on hard topics and breaks them down into simple terms that anyone can understand. Thankful for his leadership and what he does for the Kingdom of God! This podcast is a must listen to!
My only wish is that there was more than once a month release. Great content, I learn something from every episode. Thanks Andy and team!
Every Leader Should Listen
It has been my experience that leaders with a foundation of integrity and spiritual principles excel in organizational life. I am so grateful for this podcast series.
5-star content, 1-star delivery
The content in this podcast is great, but most of the episodes over the past year have been split into multiple parts. That's not a bad thing to do for a weekly podcast, but since this is a monthly podcast, it's a terrible way to deliver content.
I'd much rather they leave all the episodes intact and just skip months for releasing them if there's no new content to release.
Good, but not enough of them.
These are good podcasts with great leaders as guests. But, once a month is not enough I don’t think.
I really dig this one.
I have found this podcast to be practical and encouraging.
Realistic and encouraging
Good to hear and learn from Andy’s experiences.
I love the Andy Stanley Leadership Podcast because it focuses on business from a biblical perspective. Andy is such an effective, clear communicator and gives very practical advice on very complicated topics.
This podcast has changed my leadership life. I am a faithful follower who does not miss an episode. I teach the new lessons I learn to my leadership team. It means a great deal to me that this content is filtered through the lens of a Christian worldview. However, I never feel “preachy” if I use the material when leading someone not of faith. Thank you for coaching me in an authentic and actionable manner.
Can't get enough!
I am a huge fan of this podcast! The leadership principles from Andy resonate with me so much as a church leader. I have been motivated on multiple occassions to work the principles discussed on the podcast into my leadership role and my team.
Leaders should listen!
Julie Anne Rupp
This is my favorite leadership podcast that I listen to, and I am a podcast junkie. Andy Stanley makes complex leadership principles easy to understand, and even brings in guest speakers on a semi-regular basis to give great perspective. My only negative is that I wish it could be broadcast every week because I love it so much.
This is an amazing podcast & I would suggest it to anyone! I can't tell you how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to listen. It has changed my life & when I am successful I will owe a lot of it to the advice I learned here. Even if you aren't into leadership this is still a must listen!!!! Invaluable to me & my progression as I take on the corporate world. My job thanks you, I thank you & my wife & kids thank you because everyone has seen a difference in my attitude since listening.
Great leaders learn
Awesome podcast! Full of great content!
What a great podcast for leaders that you can apply at work and home!
Nicholas A Beaird
So much wisdom from Andy Stanley. This is for Leaders in every sector of business and non profit.
Really enjoy this!
Very helpful insights from many different leaders in many different areas of life.
Not doing it
Called by God
Some of the things spoken are good, but so much is flimsy and unclear. We need to hear clear exposition from the word of God. That is not what we are getting here.
Has helped me out a lot
Andy is amazing
Transforms Gods truth in to real life practical applications 💕
Great Leadership Resource
Caleb Mason (Ohio)
Andy always delivers gold every month whether it's in the form of a lesson or interview. I look forward to it every month!
Wise and practical
I just started listening to this podcast. It's a tool that you want to keep in your back pocket as a leader, father, husband. It's life applicable. Great for business. Great for ministry. Listen and grow! Thank you Andy for sharing the wisdom that you have learned with us and making it free and accessible. Thank you! I got here through your friend, Craig Groeschel's podcast. I'm glad I made it here.
I have been listening to Andy Stanley's messages from his church and TV show for some time now. From the first time that I ever heard him speak, I was captivated with him and the gift of communication that God has given him. It is wonderful for that to carry over into this arena, reaching many other people that may not have otherwise been reached. I am glad that God is using Andy to accomplish great things. I highly recommend this podcast to ANYONE!
I am not a pastor or a leader in my career however I have found great value from listening to Andy and his interviews. You can still find yourself in positions of leading others around you without being the manager of your team.
Look forward to new ones
I've been reading & listening to Andy for years. Didn't know about this until a few months ago. The good news is I was able to binge listen. The bad news is waiting for new ones.
My go-to place for leadership insights
I'm essentially drinking the Andy Stanley kool aid at this point, but I consistently find his advice and interviews to be extremely helpful to me as I try to grow as a leader at work and in my church community.
Incredibly Valuable Content
May be the most valuable podcast minute by minute I have ever listened to. Quality content, clearly explained, excellent examples. Truly transformational.
Each episode includes outstanding Thought Leadership - Outstanding!
The best leadership podcast
I've been listening to ASLP since 2009.
There were just a few episodes that i didn't care much about.
Here's why I totally love it and keep on recommending it to my friends:
No bla bla bla
Andy makes complicated issues simple and doable.
It's totally worth it.
Solid well-produced reflection on leadership
Andy Stanley is pastor of the one of the largest churches in the United States and his organizational thinking is solid and he is an excellent communicator. The podcast is well-produced and Stanley's comments are regularly stimulating. Stanley describes his insights in such a way that they can be applicable in a wide range of settings. Stanley is himself a leader of an organization that continues to change, which gives his insights freshness. He is continuing to learn. Listen to this podcast along with the HBR IdeaCast.
