    Emotional Resilience in a World of Burnout

    Emotional Resilience in a World of Burnout

    Emotional resilience, a key component of Dimensional Leadership, comprises self-awareness, persistence, emotional control, and flexibility. Dimensional Leadership is about leading your company forward and being comfortable outside your comfort zone, a concept that is crucial in the context of emotional resilience. 
     
    Our response to each situation and its relative stress is a reflection of our emotional resilience. In a world filled with high stress and dramatic change, the ability to flex in our actions, thinking, and feelings becomes crucial. This adaptability is a key aspect of resilience, allowing us to navigate through pressure cooker situations with self-awareness, trust in ourselves, and a moral compass. It's this trust in ourselves that gives us the confidence to navigate through any situation. 
     
    Jess Dewell welcomes three esteemed guests to share their insights and experiences about building emotional resilience. Ben Baker, President and CEO of Your Brand Marketing, Mark Carruthers, Principal and Senior Consultant, and Andrew Hutton, Founder and CEO of Day One. Together, they discuss the importance of self-trust, using a moral compass, and getting uncomfortable in the journey of building emotional resilience.

    Intentional Leadership as a Catalyst for Growth

    "It's all in the preparation" sounds anything but exciting in our instant-gratification world. Yet, it's the key to success, providing a sense of security and control in the unpredictable business landscape. Success comes from consistent attention to how you, as a founder or business owner, show up—which requires preparation! 
     
    Your mindset directly relates to the actions you prioritize. There is potential to be tapped into for efficiency and adaptability. The creativity from having a shared vision and embracing long-term goals defines excellence and how it is demonstrated. To do this, stepping outside your comfort zone is more than ideal. Today, stepping into being uncomfortable is necessary to create a lasting business.
     
    In this program, you will hear about two questions that will make you uncomfortable, the creativity that comes with the limits of a 24-hour day, and how preparation can make or break the timeline set to reach your goals. 
     
    Jess Dewell discusses with Andy Lee, Parallaxes Capital's Chief Investment Officer, the importance of embracing individuality by leading purposefully. They also explore strategies for thinking differently, making even a 1% difference through intention and focusing on business growth.

    Discipline to be Exceptional at One Thing

    Discipline to be Exceptional at One Thing

    One key aspect of excelling in any field is the discipline to focus on one thing and be exceptional at it. It is important to acknowledge the inevitable gap between our knowledge and being entirely right when making decisions. Striking the right balance between confidence and self-assurance is crucial in navigating this uncertainty.
     
    Jess Dewell engaged in a thought-provoking conversation with Michael Silverman, the CEO of Flipp. They delved into the crucial role of embracing change within the business landscape.

Their conversation discussed the significance of setting clear priorities, continuous learning, and identifying key business prioritization areas.
     
    Moreover, the discussion went deeper into the frameworks and leadership styles that form the bedrock of Flipp's adaptive strategy, shedding light on the innovative approaches driving the company's success.

    Prepare Your Business for Successful Sale

    Prepare Your Business for Successful Sale

    Selling your business isn’t as simple as it seems. For sellers, this means understanding their role in the business and preparing it for a successful transition. For buyers, this means knowing what they’re looking for and what kind of business aligns with their skills and goals. 
     
    Business buyers and sellers want to have confidence in their ability to maximize their business's value, attract the right buyers, and create a seamless transition. To do that, it's crucial to have strong business fundamentals. This includes a depth of knowledge and the ability to communicate cash flow, operational efficiency, and customer satisfaction.
     
    In this program, you will hear about the actual cost of burnout and selling your business, an exercise to determine what you are really selling, and what to know about a person who is buying your business. 
     
    Jess Dewell talks with David C Barnett, a Private Transaction Advisor, about how to uncover the hidden truths and be objective about the company you have to sell, and why it is BOLD to take the time to get real about a salable business.

    It's Your Business: Want Results? Stop Planning Start Deciding

    It's Your Business: Want Results? Stop Planning Start Deciding

    Forget perfect plans and endless strategizing. The secret to achievement is found by taking action, learning from mistakes, and making choices that align with your biggest goals. 
     
    Ultimately, decision-making is a framework for action. Even imperfect choices create an environment that fosters gathering more information to hone in on what you don't know, what you assumed … or even those actions that turned out to be great. Making decisions is a skill and a craft that requires stamina, energy, and commitment. Every action affirms that you are moving away from or toward the goal.
     
    This "It's Your Business" program features audience questions and real experiences from Christy Maxfield, President and CEO at Purpose First Advisors; Quentin Ortega, Founder and Lead Consultant at QCO Consulting; and your host, Jess Dewell, Managing Partner at Red Direction. 
     
    You will hear how to stay competitive, that decisions don't have to last forever, how to measure the results of your decisions, and how making decisions is crucial to your success.
