IARA executive director Mark Coleman announced recently that IARA has launched a podcast series called “Hearing Voices,” a play on IARA’s tagline The Voice of the Consignor.
The podcast series is powered by Greater Rockford Auto Auction, and is accessible from IARA’s website at iara.biz, in addition to most podcast outlets.
A Concentrate on Leadership Topics
The initial three episodes of the Hearing Voices podcast feature interviews with Joe Miller, success coach and founding father of Awareness to Motion Coaching, on the subject of leadership and listening; Dave Blake, executive director of the Independent Auction Group and vice chairman at DAA Seattle, on the subject of leadership and repair; and Professor Shann Ferch of Gonzaga University on the subject of leadership and forgiveness.
“IARA’s aim is to assist our members gain a competitive edge,” Coleman said in a Feb. 6 news release, “and good leadership is the final word edge.” Over time, podcast topics will expand to incorporate emerging technologies in remarketing, careers within the industry, and more.
30-Minute Interviews Yield Key Insights
Keeping to a 30-minute format, the podcasts are hosted and produced by Abigail Balk, marketing and communications manager at Greater Rockford Auto Auction. Balk creates thoughtful questions for podcast guests designed to elicit a mixture of non-public experiences from the guests, in addition to sage advice.
“Our goal is to deliver enriching content, while also providing some actionable advice. I believe we hit the mark with our first few installments,” Abigail said.
