    How to Reach Your Fullest Potential (in Life and Business)

    How to Reach Your Fullest Potential (in Life and Business)

    Ever heard of Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft?

    Well, let’s just say that back in 2014, Microsoft was well, struggling hard. Their market shares were down, they had a not-so-stellar team culture, and they simply just lacked innovation overall compared to their competitors.

    When Nadella took over, he knew things had to change. And, so you know what he did? He started with himself, focusing on empathy and humility.

    He listened to his team and customers and made sure everyone had exactly what they needed to succeed.

    Under his leadership, Microsoft completely turned things around. They introduced new features and products, like AI and OneDrive. And they made a huge acquisition: LinkedIn, for $26.2 billion. Yep.

    In this episode, you’ll learn how aiming for your fullest potential serves everyone around you and how to apply my framework, the "three Ps of reaching YOUR fullest potential”, to your business.

    (00:03:14) How Satya Nadella made Microsoft profitable again.

    (00:04:13) Why you should intentionally seek discomfort.

    (00:06:14) The value of surrounding yourself with a diverse group of people.

    (00:08:15) What it means to practice intellectual humility.

    (00:14:44) How your own personal growth can impact the experience and satisfaction of your clients and customers,

    (00:18:07) How to sell to the highest need in the hierarchy.
