Lisa Green | The Journal Gazette

Realtors, brokers and developers might be among those most interested in a new podcast series The Urban Land Institute announced today.

The series, "Leading Voices with ULI," offers personal leadership stories from "some of the most innovative professionals in the real estate and land use industries," a news release said.

The podcasts will look at leaders’ career journeys, including obstacles overcome, and reflections. Produced by the ULI Leadership Network, the podcasts even explore the effect of factors such as upbringing and social experiences.

"We are excited about the potential of the series to inspire and guide the next generation of industry leaders,”  said ULI Global Chief Executive Officer Patrick L. Phillips.

The series will be hosted by ULI Foundation Governor Matt Slepin, founder of the San Francisco–based Terra Search Partners, a national executive search firm helping real estate companies build successful teams. 

“We are talking to leaders and founders of companies, elected and career government officials, business leaders, and others who are making a huge difference in their communities," Slepin said in a statement. "The podcast series is an opportunity to do deep dives with these people about the genius of their work, the roots of their passion, and what got them to where they are in their careers.”

Each episode in the series will be available for public download for a limited time before being moved to ULI member–only access. Listeners can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or find episodes at uli.org/leadingvoices.
