CEOs always need to be honing their skills and learning from the best. Podcasts are a great way to do just that. To and from work it is a great opportunity to tune into a podcast and gain insights from some of the world’s leading business thinkers.

 You may ask why the title of this article refers to “Israeli CEO”… simply because some of the podcasts mentioned are in Hebrew and because Google Real-time Translate is not yet released 😉


Here are five podcasts any Israeli CEO should listen to:

Harvard Business Review (HBR) Podcast

The HBR podcast is a weekly podcast featuring the leading thinkers in business and management. Business leaders appearing on the podcast recently include Dominic Barton, the global managing partner of Mckinsey&Company, and Kenneth Frazier, the CEO of the pharmaceutical company MSD.

 This podcast is a great way to pick the brains of the world’s leading business minds.

Fareed Zakaria GPS

Fareed Zakaria GPS

Fareed Zakaria GPS takes a comprehensive and in-depth look at foreign affairs and global policies through in-depth, one-on-one interviews and fascinating roundtable discussions. The podcast often discusses major macroeconomic events such as the GOP’s tax cuts, Trump’s tariffs and its effects on global financial markets.

If you’re looking for sophisticated analysis and debate of the world’s most pertinent issues, Fareed Zakaria GPS is an excellent podcast for you to listen to. You will be impressed how many times our prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was on this show.

 This podcast is a great way to pick the brains of the world’s leading business minds.

The McKinsey Podcast

The McKinsey podcast series takes you inside one of management consulting’s leading global firms, featuring conversations with experts on business issues that matter most. A relatively new podcast, the McKinsey Podcast’s first three topics of discussion were on the essentials of innovation, the future of energy and gender equality.

If you want to know more about the future of business innovation and workplace culture this podcast is right for you. If you come visit our office @ DataToCapital, you may hear this podcast in the background; and yes, although our methodologies and way to approach engagements are very different, McKinsey is definitively a source of inspiration for us.
