Hot Air Balloons and Other Fears That Hold You Back Grounding and Growing Leadership Podcast

    • Business

Are you ready to fly? In today’s episode, we are thrilled to share our experience of going on a hot air balloon ride and how it helped us gain some insights into conquering those fears that hold you back. (You’re going to need to listen to discover who is deathly afraid of heights and still rode in the balloon.)

Facing a fear can give you a whole new perspective on your environment and open up new possibilities that you may have never considered. Sometimes it’s about showing up in a space and letting things happen with a trusted friend or colleague. 

We hope that by sharing our adventure, we will encourage you to name a fear you have with one of your trusted people and then take some steps to conquer that fear. And once you do that, let us know. We’d love to celebrate with you! Celebrating is so important when you stop holding yourself back from something you thought you could never do. 

At the Grounding and Growing Leadership podcast, we believe everyone is a leader and that leadership starts with you. Join Tara Gronhovd, Gallup Certified Clifton Strengths Coach and e2Grow High Performing Team Coach, and Pamela Nelson, Certified Leadership Coach, Counselor, and Spiritual Director, as we navigate conversations to grow you and your teams on your leadership journeys.

CliftonStrengths (aka Strengthsfinder) is an assessment that is based on positive psychology and measures core motivations. It’s an extremely powerful tool for personal and professional development as well as improving team dynamics. You will hear us reference Strengths frequently in our podcasts. If you are interested in learning more and taking the CliftonStrengths assessment for you or your team, please reach out to tara@aligntransform.com.
