In this episode, we talk about,
The concept of being a Polymath and why Kurt resonates with the idea of being a person of wide knowledge or learning.Kurt shares the idea that if you’re going to worry about something, leave worrying until 5 minutes before the thing you’re worrying about.Kurt kindly shares the tragic loss of his wife passing away 5 years ago and the impact that has had on his outlook on life, and the unexpected position he now finds himself in as a single parent.Kurt shares the idea of finding “Subtle Supporters” in order for your thinking to be challenged whilst at the same time having a support network around you.We ask ourselves the question, How do we separate what we think from how we feel? And why this is an important question to ask and live into.We discuss how children appear to have what may be considered natural confidence, and that over time the external environment and their experience erodes that natural confidence.We explore the impact of confidence within the organisation setting and how essential it is for leaders to be confident in saying, “I don't know”, whilst maintaining belief in the teams ability to create the best way forward.Kurt shares his belief in sulking, having a day in your pajamas but only for a self agreed amount of time. We discuss the idea of creating a virtual personal boardroom, made up of people you would love to have guiding and advising you.Finally Kurt shares the idea of having just enough confidence to say hello, and how impactful that can be in developing and improving your confidence.Kurt's energy is infectious and authentic, his passion for human learning and development shines throughout this conversation. Kurt challenges us to think about meaning and context, and to really question what we believe is important about confidence. We’re provided with thought provoking ideas and the reality that all humans at some point have battled with their confidence. There’s an abundance of warmth and compassion that comes from Kurt and we hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did recording it.
