To kickoff the podcast, Severin reviews how the list of the best executive coaching podcasts was determined:
First, a focus was placed on podcasts whose purpose is to advance the art and/or science of executive coaching using content that is congruent with the generally accepted practices and definitions of coaching promulgated by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), EMCC Global, International Coaching Association (ICA), and Association for Coaching. Furthermore, the list intentionally leans towards podcasts that include executive coaching material consistent with current evidence-based coaching research.
Second, highest priority was given to podcasts under Google’s organic search results of the phrase: “Executive Coach Podcast'' in which podcasts that fell within the top 10 Google organic search page results and the top 10 Google organic display rank for podcast series were included on the list. Any podcasts that did not have at least a 25 minimum listener audience score on ListenNotes were excluded.
Third, the appropriateness of content for executive coaches, leadership coaches, organizational development coaches, business leaders, business owners, CEOs, and key-level executives was considered.
Fourth, the podcasts in consideration were listed as being in the top 200 podcasts on Apple Podcasts in the categories of “management” and/or “business.”
Fifth, podcast backlinks to other sites were considered as, according to Google and research scholars, they determine relevance and importance of a document.
