    A Manager's Guide for How to Be with Transformation in High Pressure Organizations with Elodie Loing

    A Manager's Guide for How to Be with Transformation in High Pressure Organizations with Elodie Loing

    Have you ever been a part of a transformation project? Or an organization who was looking to make scalable, rapid change? Being a part of these times in an organization can be stressful and intense. Many times employees are nervous about entering a transformation project due to all of the unknowns.

    Today Deepa is speaking with Elodie Loing about transformation in critical situations within organizations. Elodie shares her real life experiences with scaling organizations and creating change within teams. Elodie’s approach is about empathy, letting go and collective responsibility. This episode is for any one who may be experiencing a critical time in their organization, but especially for executives and managers.

    Key Points from this Episode:

    - Many times change agents are called into a project and organizations are called in too late.
    - Critical times happen when there is high pressure and stress within an organization. It is generally systemic and performance is low.
    - Being a mediator is different from being an operational manager.
    - Empathy is enriching and humbling because you are looking at the situation from another person’s perspective.
    - Being unattached - the ability to do the best you can and let go of what the future holds or what the outcome actually is.
    - There is an opportunity to grow in every situation.
    - Promote diversity in your teams. Hire those who have different opinions from yours and let them talk.
    - Here’s an easy way to practice stillness - make an appointment with yourself, put it in your calendar!
    - The hardest part of a reset is your ego and your rational brain. Watch out for those!
    - Co-creation allows you to let go of your own ideas and let others in to help you. Give your teams the benefit of working with you.
    - Collective responsibility comes from within each person.
    - Accept yourself - the strengths you have, the weaknesses you have, every part of you. And realize you will make mistakes. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.

    We hope you enjoyed this episode! Elodie gave so much wisdom. Let us know in the comments, have you been a part of a transformation project? Was it during a critical time? What was the most memorable part? Was it stressful or fun? :)

    How Bold Leadership Actually Helps You with Zana Goic Petricevic

    How Bold Leadership Actually Helps You with Zana Goic Petricevic

    How many times have you had an idea or suggestion and not actually spoken it out loud? How many times have you seen something wrong happening in your workplace but you have not told anyone about it? Did you know that you are having an impact whether or not you are speaking? What is the legacy that you want to leave as a leader?

    Today, Deepa is joined with Zana Goic Petricevic, Founder of Bold Leadership Culture, to discuss how and why you need to be bold in your leadership. We are all leaders of our own lives, so why not be bold about it?

    Key Points from the Episode:

    - Boldness takes your soulfulness. In order to be bold, you have to engage your entire soul.
    - There is a limit to your boldness that comes from your head.
    - Reasonable and safe behaviors and decisions come from the brain. Unreasonable and risky behaviors and decisions come from the heart or soul, anywhere besides the brain.
    - You have a choice to act more boldly and step outside of your comfort zone.
    - Your discomfort matters less than your vision. This pushes you to act boldly.
    - Zana shares a perspective to see how bold you are, based on SOUL - Self, Other, Universe, and Legacy.
    - Leadership is as much about the “being” space as it is in the “doing” space. There needs to be moments of pause and presence as well as moments that challenge and grow us.
    - There is no boldness without personal risk involved.
    - Break out of the mindset that your work is solely a means for income.
    - You cannot create legacy by staying small.
    - You are creating an impact whether or not you speak up.
    Silence is a misused privilege.

    We hope you liked this episode! Let us know in the comments what part of the SOUL was most intriguing to you and your bold leadership.

    About Zana Goic Petricevic

    How to Persevere Through Crisis with Magali Euverte

    How to Persevere Through Crisis with Magali Euverte

    Many organizations are finding themselves in crisis right now. The pandemic has turned businesses upside down. So how do you persevere through crisis and come out stronger on the other side?

    Today, Deepa is joined with Magali Euverte who is the Director of the Normandy lines contract with SNCF. Magali shares her experience of pushing through crisis, when it lasts for more than a year. Listen to this episode to hear real life experience of how you can inspire and invest in your team to build collective responsibility and achieve success.

    Key Points from this Episode:
    - Invest time and training in your frontline managers. Get them on board and encourage them to bring their teams.
    - Find your purpose and why you will continue on this journey. If you don’t know your why, you won’t have much luck in continuing when the journey gets difficult.
    - Understand what is in it for your fellow employees. Both in the sense of empathy as well as anticipating any possible roadblocks that may come along down the way.
    - Celebrate every step along the way, otherwise the team will lose their motivation.
    - Transparency includes engaging your employees in solutions, allowing them to contribute their feedback to build the solution.
    - It pays to spend more time on the short term goals, rather than the long term goal.
    - Communication builds team spirit. Team Spirit is what keeps the project going, even for over a year.
    - It is important to be able to zoom in to the short term and zoom out to the long term, even with the crisis right in front of you there is a need to put processes in place that will help in the long term.
    - Remember to reward every part of the project, especially in support of the long term goals.
    - Resiliency is needed during a long crisis.
    - Be honest about the crisis now and hold the future goal – yes the process will be hard and we can see what the future will be so we are going to keep going.

    We hope you liked this episode! Let us know in the comments what was the most inspiring part of Magali’s journey.

    The Intersection of Spirituality & Leadership with Gaurav Arora

    The Intersection of Spirituality & Leadership with Gaurav Arora

    What is spirituality? Does that question make you nervous? Spirituality is not a part of the rational mind. This is why it is so hard for us to get into a practice of including spirituality into our lives because it is not in our comfort zone. The world favors the rational mind and we are conditioned to leave behind what is innately in us.

    Join Deepa and her guest, Gaurav Arora, as they explore the intersection of spirituality and leadership. How could including a practice of spirituality improve your leadership? What does it mean to ‘come home’? Are you living a life of intention? Listen to get simple tips on how you can start on this journey today.

    Key Points from this Episode:
    - From Gaurav’s perspective, spirituality is a process of coming back home. Where you unlearn what you’ve learned from social conditioning. Spirituality is being your true authentic self without any need of appreciation or acknowledgement from the world. It is a lifelong journey.
    - Just by starting to ask questions about how you begin this journey, you have started this important work.
    - Ask yourself “Who am I?” continuously over time, keep checking in with yourself and discovering who you are.
    - Find your source of joy.
    - When you are fully in what gives you joy,, you are not fulfilling a need. A need to show how smart you are or a need for approval from others.
    - Define your version of success, and make sure it is truly from you instead from others or the world.
    - Intentions are extremely important. They can guide you on this journey. To find your intentions, ask yourself “What do I stand for?”. Your intentions should be the foundation of your leadership.
    - Take a moment before your day starts or before a meeting to question, “What is my intention for this day or meeting?”.
    - Gaurav says Leadership is a process of a leader leading a team to a common goal. It is a performance art. “Who you are is how you lead.”
    - “Who you are is how you lead.” If you don’t know who you are, you won’t be able to lead.

    We hope you liked this episode! Let us know in the comments how you define spirituality and how it is included in your leadership journey. If you’d like to dive deeper into how you can achieve more in harmony, come take Deepa’s masterclass on why you need to rethink leadership here (www.meetmypotenital.com/webinar).

    Arrogance: Triggers, Awareness, & Responsibility with Bob Anderson

    Arrogance: Triggers, Awareness, & Responsibility with Bob Anderson

    Have you ever come across an arrogant leader? I bet everyone has come across at least 1 arrogant leader. I have come across many in my years as a Transformation coach, working with many high level executives in organization. But, have you ever taken the time to turn around and examine your own arrogance? What would you find if you asked yourself why that leader’s arrogance bothers you?

    We will always have arrogance to deal with, but the most important piece of this is to recognize what triggers you and how you can better deal with the arrogance. Once you know why arrogance irritates you, you’ll be better equipped to name it and move forward. Listen to this interview with Bob Anderson where we dive into specific examples of arrogance.

    Key Points from this Episode:
    - It is easy to spot arrogance in others around us but more importantly arrogance needs to be identified within us. Instead of placing blame on others, first look at yourself and see what you find in yourself.
    - We can feel vulnerable in work environments. As much as we want to feel like we are equal to or have the same amount of power as another, the truth is we all have different amounts of power at work.
    - We attach many things to our identity, our ego. We get validation from those around us which inforce how we think about ourselves. This has the potential to grow our arrogance.
    - If you are curious about how you are showing up, go ask a few of your colleagues how they see you. You might be surprised to hear what you are telling those you work with, even just with your facial expressions!
    - You never know someone’s story, where they came from and what they are dealing with. Remember compassion.
    - There are no difficult people. They only exist because they raise a difficulty in ourselves.
    - “It’s not who we are, it’s how we’re not who we are.”
    - Get in the practice of asking yourself, “Am I part of the problem?”
    - It is so easy to identify ourselves as our ideas or our title, and if those things are not accepted then we feel not accepted.
    - Remember to be open and listen.
    - Our life stories have developed us in a certain way. This is not a bad thing, but it is something that needs to be examined and looked at so that we can know why we behave the way we do.

    I hope you liked this episode! If you are curious about knowing how and why you behave the way you do, schedule some time with me! I love helping others get to the root of how they act and figuring out next steps to create the change you are wanting. Schedule a session with me here - https://go.oncehub.com/meetpotential.

    How to Make Complex Simple with Lisa Bodell

    How to Make Complex Simple with Lisa Bodell

    Our world is built on a lot of complexity. But what would happen if we stopped and took the time to evaluate if that complexity is serving us? What if we realized that the complexity within our organizations is actually wasting time and doing the opposite that we are hoping for?

    Today I’m joined by Lisa Bodell and we talk about why it is important to get back to simple. There can be so much value in simple things like asking ourselves what are we saying yes to? In this question you can find what you are valuing and you will instantly know if you are on track to what you’ve said is the purpose of your work. Take a listen and get ready to be very honest with yourself!

    Key Points from this Episode:

    - We add complexity with the best of intentions, we are trying to solve a problem or trying to add onto a process we already have. - We should spend more time stopping and getting back to simple.
    - The goal of simplifying means to get to the heart of the work, meaningful work. We get too stuck in the meetings and emails.
    - We all value getting stuff done. We all need to check our behaviors to take into account not our own work loads, but also our colleagues’ load.
    - Complexity is driven by fear and creates comfort because there are places to hide.
    - Most of us have been taught to not take risks. And no one gets punished by following the status quo so not taking risks is reinforced.
    - Change won’t happen unless the leaders give permission.
    - ‘Kill a stupid rule’ exercise - remember to look at the rules that you adhere to each day, not only the rules in other departments.
    - The way to make change stick is to change behaviors. Instead of changing tactics, you must change behaviors. Start doing this by questioning the assumptions around you and that you are run by.
    - Complexity not only wastes time but it also kills your company culture.
    - When everything is simplified, transparency rises above everything. It is easier to spot the problems and see what needs to change to make companies more efficient and innovative.
    - Everywhere can have simplicity, no matter how regulated it is.
    - Do a calendar audit - think about how many meetings you may not be needing to attend a week!
    - These 3 behaviors are needed to embrace simplicity: Permission to be questioned, Say No, and Streamline decision making.

    Thanks for listening! If you liked this episode, you will LOVE my masterclass on how to Achieve Success in Harmony. It is all about diving into what drives you and what behaviors you could add into your life to achieve more balance in your life. Check it out here!
