    109: Commit to a rhythm of TIME OUTs

    109: Commit to a rhythm of TIME OUTs

    #109 is a short solo episode to wrap up this season and update you on my areas of focus for the months ahead.
    In particular, we explore the power of committing to a rhythm of breaks or TIME OUTs. I've found this to be a critical part of a sustainable leadership lifestyle. Since 2016 I’ve had a regular week or so off work to reset and recharge every quarter. 
    If you’re a leader, I encourage you to schedule and commit to some rest, recovery and reflection this month. Your body, your mind, your family and your team will thank you later for taking the time to recharge. #leadershiplifestyle
    Enjoy!

    108: RECAP - Empathy-accountability continuum

    108: RECAP - Empathy-accountability continuum

    "Don't practise until you can get it right, practise until you can't get it wrong." - Michael Jordan
    ____
    As a mentor and coach, I see far too many over-empathetic leaders (like I used to be) who are working for their business instead of the other way around.
    The empathy-accountability continuum helps over-empathetic leaders recognise and resolve this trait. 
    This episode revisits the empathy-accountability continuum model introduced in episode 82 and referred to in episodes 106 and 107.
    I’m repeating a section of episode 87 because it’s probably the most important content I’ve ever produced.
    Mastering this skill will transform your leadership lifestyle and guide you to better control your business.
    Enjoy!

    107: TOO MUCH empathy is KILLING your business

    107: TOO MUCH empathy is KILLING your business

    In this episode, I'm going in hard. 
    Too much empathy is killing businesses and sucking the life out of service-based entrepreneurs. 
    Empathy has its place, but I argue it's being overdone by far too many leaders. It's time for some real talk on this topic and today's the day we're going to have that conversation.
    Enjoy!

    106: Are you leading with TOO MUCH empathy?

    106: Are you leading with TOO MUCH empathy?

    This short solo episode focuses on leading with empathy and whether service-based leaders are getting the blend of empathy and assertiveness in the right mix.
     
    In it the episode, we explore the slightly controversial question: are you leading with too much empathy?

    Overdoing empathy in our approach to leadership can be detrimental not only to individual and team performance but to the leader's physical and mental health.
    Enjoy!

    105: Confessions of a recovering perfectionist

    105: Confessions of a recovering perfectionist

    This short solo episode looks at the many ways my perfectionism – which I always thought of as a good thing – actually gets in the way of me doing the work and enjoying the process. 
    If you can recognise yourself in any part of my story, and many service-based entrepreneurs do, there are a few suggestions to help you reframe your perfectionism and/or procrastination too.
    Enjoy!

    104: When is your Finish Line for 2021?

    104: When is your Finish Line for 2021?

    To round out a huge 2021, I wanted to check in with you to ask: When is your Finish Line for 2021?
    To impact the world the way many of us service-based entrepreneurs dream of doing is hard work.
    It's so very important that we all decide when to wrap up one year, take a time out to recharge and then restart the next year with energy and focus, so when is your Finish Line for 2021?
    And, are you sticking to it?
    Enjoy!
