    Do You Actually Relate to People? | Over Drinks with Evan Woolley

    How can the right leadership navigate the recent, and history repeated, events in order to continue moving forward? There really is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ leadership; just misled leaders. Leading and navigating with your team is a process that grows with the amount of obstacles you face and overcome. Trust in an organization and in the public, as we’ll hear in this episode, is an essential element that sprouts from experiences, struggles and the ability as a leader to relate with his people.


     


    It can feel like a hamonic dance yet a constant battle of dealing with problems and discovering solutions.

Join me today as the youngest  councillor for the city of Calgary, Evan Woolley, shares his insights and knowledge from a curtain many of us are not familiar with.

    They inform our priorities, they expand our horizons and harness our strengths.

    Who Do You Need To Be To Build Resilience For The Future
    Maya and I talk about the last quarter. The projects we were working on and the lessons they presented. The gapple with trying to get it right, the power of just going with the flow and the benefit of implementing custom systems and structures that supports (not constraints) creativity.


    I know it all sounds like a big contradiction. 
    WELCOME TO YOUR LIFE.


    Each of you listening has the ability and the freedom to create a possible future. When we’re able to flex the muscles of adaptability, resilience and intuition at a moment’s notice, your ability to navigate the unpredictable seasons of the future improves. 


    New opportunities present themselves.


    It’s just whether we’re paying attention and willing to embrace and implement the systems of support to build, pivot or keep going. 


    There’s work to be done to define, understand and articulate who you are, what you stand for.
    You’re here to be of service and make a difference.
    You’re here to bring value.
    You’re here to push boundaries and create new possibilities.
    To explore new positions, new areas of focus and new directions to take.


    I believe all of us are visionary and that it's time for you to create what’s next, leading yourself and others into the emerging future. 


    The question is...what are you waiting for?

    The game of entrepreneurship keeps you driven and hungry.


    Busy building and doing, and rarely with a clear plan. 


    At the beginning that's a good thing! 


     


    What better environment to figure things out but rolling up your sleeves and digging in.


    While there is always a part of us that wished we would have had MORE support, insight, awareness, mentorship.


    Would it have really made the difference?


    Would you have lost interest too soon?


    Do you think you would have committed as much to doing the necessary work?


     


    Being a leader and building anything is a practice and an evolution.


    There is a moving towards and when the time is ready, the desire for a more clearly defined picture of the future (your vision) will emerge.
