Rank #1: Episode 148: So Many Incompetent Leaders

Podcast cover
Read more

Most leaders in business and politics are male, and most of us rate our leaders poorly. Would that change if more leaders were women? In this show I meet up with Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, author of 'Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders?' We discuss confidence versus competence, learning to distrust our instincts, and how bad leadership can drive a lot of us out of a job (voluntarily).

Rank #3: Episode 149: Forgiveness at Work

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode we look at forgiveness as a career tactic. A lot of us stew for weeks or months over things that have happened at work. My guest Christie Lindor decided the way to get ahead in her career was to forgive the aggressions - micro and otherwise - she was subject to at the office. She talks about how and why she chose forgiveness as a way forward, and how focusing on what you want to come out of a bad situation can help you deal with hurt, anger and resentment. If you're fuming over a work situation right now, tune in. This is the last episode you'll hear for a while as The Broad Experience goes on hiatus for a few months.

Rank #10: The Broad Experience 74: On Confidence

Podcast cover
Read more
Study after study shows women have less confidence than men. But you hardly need a study to work that out. Just look around you - how many women do you know who exude the same self-belief as the men in your life? Confidence, or the lack of it, is a big issue in many women's careers, including my own. In this show I talk to business owner Denise Barreto, whose confidence I envy, and NPR reporter Stacey Vanek Smith, who shares a lot of my hangups. She has to psych herself up to ask for things at work, because she's not quite sure she deserves it.

Rank #12: Episode 130: How to Make the Most of Your Time (re-release)

Podcast cover

We say it repeatedly - that we're 'crazy busy' and 'don't have time' for various things we enjoy, or used to. The pressure of work and life is too much. Or is it?


In this show I talk to author and journalist Laura Vanderkam about women and time management. Her book is I Know How She Does It - How Successful Women Make the Most of Their Time. Laura says many of us buy into a negative storyline about what's (im)possible as a worker and a parent. She argues there are ways to have a senior job and a family and not lose your mind - you just have to think creatively.

Chances are you've noticed that professional women are often stressed out. In this show we aim to find out why and bring some relief. First we meet Jen Yip, a Broad Experience listener who lived a stressful existence for years, but kept going because plowing through was the only option she knew - until she started to crack. Then we hear from therapist and corporate consultant Marjorie Hirsch, who has some advice about how to cut down on stress. This includes tackling stuff women tend to suck at, such as saying no, setting boundaries, and asking questions that'll make your life easier.

We all need inspiration in the form of successful women. But sometimes the pitches I get about the latest amazing, do-it-all star who's 'killing it' can make me feel tired rather than inspired. Financial Times columnist Pilita Clark is in the same boat. She argues that true equality means not having to be utterly stellar to receive recognition. In this show we discuss her theory that women should be allowed to be as mediocre as any man.

Women hear that we negotiate less than men, that we're not as good at it as men, that we get backlash when we do negotiate. All such negative stuff. Yet there's so much power in negotiation. It's a vital tool to get us what we want at work and everywhere else. In this show I sit down with Natalie Reynolds to demystify negotiation and talk about how women can make it work for them - in their own way. That includes not accepting 'no' as a final answer. Natalie is CEO of negotiation consultancy Advantage Spring and author of the book We Have a Deal. This is the first of a two-part show.
