Formerly known as The Good Practice Podcast, The Mind Tools L&D Podcast has spent more than five years and 350 episodes mixing expert insights with humor to offer an open and supportive space for HR and L&D professionals. Hosts Gemma Towersey, Ross Dickie, Owen Ferguson, and Ross Garner announced the name change in June 2021 to stay consistent with other Mind Tools products and services.
The podcast welcomes industry leaders, practitioners, and authors to answer some of the biggest questions facing the L&D field, such as the best way to deliver coaching or how to engage and retain employees. Each week, listeners get critical insights into everything from learning needs analysis and evidence-based practice to the impact of technology on work and industry conferences.
Guests use the podcast to share their years of experience in learning. For example, the "Six Ways to Engage Employees" episode, which is listed among the top three most popular episodes this year, features Nebel Crowhurst, chief people officer at Reward Gateway, an employee engagement platform.
