I read (and listen to) a lot of leadership material. I wasn't sure what to expect from "The Great Courses" but I was very pleasantly surprised. Since this is a lecture series, I had some reservations that the material may be too academic or presented in an overly dry manor, but it is not. The pace of narration and clarity of the speaker (Michael A. Roberto) are excellent. While this may seem pricey (if you are not buying with credits) I think there is more value here than you would expect. Even with a basic membership the cost is very reasonable. There is a lot of information covered and if you are keeping notes it will likely inspire you to read (or listen to) some followup books that are available on Audible as well.
Whether you are a practicing leader or just getting into this subject matter for the first time, I would highly recommend that you take a chance on this series.

It just so happens I am a grad student in a business leadership program in the midwest. Since we are off for the summer I was looking for something to help keep me from getting rusty, so I've been listening to this course while driving back and forth to work.
I prefer the half hour format per lecture (my drive is about that length). While not as in depth as the individual courses I've taken so far, as one would expect the perspective is slightly different from those presented by my professors and the case studies are different from the ones we discussed in class giving me the opportunity to digest the content in a more nuanced manner.
Definitely worth a listen!

I loved the attention to nuance and lack of dogma. Covers leadership from several points of view and offers concrete, solid and actionable advice.

started slow and quite dry with theory and models and then got much more interesting
