Five Must-Listen Podcasts for Warehouse Managers

The day-to-day job of a warehouse manager is a complex one that requires versatility, strong multitasking skills and the ability to make decisions on the fly. Between synchronizing shipping and receiving, monitoring financial records, and managing stock levels, the average warehouse manager has their hands full.

You can learn how to manage your time, amongst other tips and tricks, from listening to any one of the following podcasts. Not only will these programs help you keep your warehouse on track, they’ll give you handy advice you can use to be a role model both inside and outside the workplace.

1. Supply Chain and Logistics Management by Cranfield University

With episodes dating back to 2011, all of which are available for free streaming and download via iTunes, Supply Chain and Logistics Management by Cranfield University is one of the first of its kind. Broadcasting out of the Cranfield Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management, located in the Cranfield School of Management, it’s one of your best and most reputable sources for up-to-date information in the field of supply chain, logistics and warehouse management.

2. Supply Chain Insights

Supply Chain Insights is more than a podcast; it serves as a comprehensive online portal to all things related to the supply chain. There are webinars, articles and other services; but the meat of this site is really in the podcasts. With well over 200 shows and counting, the podcast features interviews with industry insiders, demonstrations on breakthrough warehouse technology, insight regarding the latest trends, and much more.

3. The MakingChips Podcast For Manufacturing Leaders

While it’s certainly a mouthful to say aloud, The MakingChips Podcast for Manufacturing Leaders challenges listeners to “think differently about manufacturing.” With regular hosts including Jason Zenger and Jim Carr, along with members of the Metalworking Nation, the show revolves around common problems faced in manufacturing, new forms of manufacturing technology, the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT), and a lot more.

4. Coaching for Leaders by Dave Stachowiak

Hosted by Dr. Dave Stachowiak and appearing on a weekly basis since 2011, Coaching for Leaders embraces the motto that “leaders are not born, they are made.” As such, the wisdom here is releveant in many different areas of the warehouse and manufacturing plant. Much of the insight comes from Dr. Stachowiak’s own experience as a leader at Dale Carnegie – but weekly stories feature a special listener success story.

5. What Great Bosses Know by Jill Geisler and The Poynter Institute

A collaboration between Jill Geisler and the professionals at The Poynter Institute, this audio program is an invaluable resource for coaches and leaders of all kinds. It draws heavily from Jill’s book, “Work Happy: What Great Bosses Know,” but features plenty of original and all-new content, too.
