Episode 30: Success Mindsets w. Dr. Ryan Gottfredson
You've no doubt asked the question (or at least thought about it!) - what do leaders need to do to be effective? The thing is, leadership isn't just about doing the right thing, it's also being someone people want to follow.
So how do we successfully tap into the 'being' side of leadership?
In this episode, Dr. Ryan Gottfredson shares his work in the realm of mindsets, neuroscience, and vertical development. His Success Mindsets help us grow beyond a self-protective mindset and move into a more cognitively and emotionally sophisticated way to make sense of the world. He believes that by growing ourselves in this way we are actually healing ourselves.
Join Sara and Ryan as they “geek out” over these ideas.

A wonderful guide for exploring the fascinating case study that is you.
Very pertinent to our current world
I enjoy all episodes of this podcast, but this episode, which aired on Election Day but I am just listening to now, should be a requirement to serve in Congress or the White House. What a great conversation and reflection in listening to others.
Am I part of the problem?
In this election cycle, where so many of us are feeling frustrated, anxious, angry, etc, this is an episode that shines light in some dark places. If I am not listening with curiosity to colleagues and friends who hold different perspectives than my own, I am part of the problem. Karl and Keith identify ways to lean in and be curious , to be brave and be kind, with those who hold different viewpoints than my own. When I can really understand the other’s perspective, I chose growth.
