Let me start by telling you that I don't have THE answers.
So why listen to my podcast?
Because I focus on asking the right questions, like: What if you stop focusing on what you are doing as a leader and shift to who you're being as a leader?
Did you feel that uncomfortable twinge, deep down inside when you read that? That means we're making progress. It’s also the start of the journey toward realizing your potential as the leader you were meant to be.
This pursuit of true leadership doesn't begin inside the next big business bestseller or with a high-powered leadership consultant. It starts with you, and your potential.
Unlocking your potential as a leader requires a change in your beliefs about who you are and what you can accomplish. That starts within the Potential Leader Lab with our Explore. Experiment. Evolve. framework. Together, we'll seek out new eclectic and provocative insights to form new hypotheses about leadership. Then, we'll take these ideas into the world so you can see what works and what doesn’t. Then, and only then, can you begin your evolution into the leader you were meant to be. That's where the real transformation begins.
Your potential —and your responsibility—as a leader—is ever-increasing and never-ending. This podcast is dedicated and committed to that pursuit.
Welcome to the Lab.

    Emotional Intelligence with Eric Pennington

    Emotional Intelligence with Eric Pennington

    Eric Pennington is the founder of Epic Living, an entity he established in 2006 to help others navigate through life and develop strong leadership skills. While it initially served as a tool for his own entrepreneurial journey, Eric realized the importance of well-being and recognized the gaps in his leadership approach. Fast forward a few years, he met Jim and Lynette Vaive, the founders of Spirit of EQ, and joined their team as a managing partner.
    At Spirit of EQ, their focus is on emotional intelligence and human development. Through their podcasts, workshops, and cohorts, they aim to make emotional intelligence a foundational and learnable skill for everyone.
    Eric shares his insights and experiences on the practical side of EQ, the importance of embracing mystery, and the anxiety that comes with it. He emphasizes the need to do the work and develop skills over time, using examples from jazz musicians and baseball hitters.
    Perry believes the world deserves better leadership; that in every human interaction there is the opportunity to either build others up or tear them down; and that leadership is the choice we make in those moments.
    These beliefs led Perry to create the Potential Leader Lab. He wanted to offer those who share his beliefs the space and safety to explore transformative ideas, experiment with new behaviors, and evolve into the leaders they were meant to be and that the world needs.
    This is a framework he has used again and again with his Vistage peer advisory groups and companies like Turn-Key Tunneling, Convergint, Haughn &  Associates, I Am Boundless, Ketchum & Walton, LSP Technologies, and Ahlum & Arbor.
    Perry lives and works on the shores of Buckeye Lake in Ohio, in the mountains of northwest Georgia, and on the beach in Anna Maria, Florida with his amazingly creative wife Lisa. They have 2 rescue dogs and are intermittently visited by their 3 wonderful children throughout the year. Perry & Lisa are living life in crescendo and focused on exploring, experimenting, and evolving their vision of a life they have no desire to retire from.

    Hilary Blair

    Hilary Blair

    Hilary Blair is the founder and CEO of ARTiculate Real and Clear, where Hilary and her team work with high-achieving, self-aware, individuals and teams, that want to make a shift and are ready to receive real feedback on their communication and presence.
    Throughout the episode, Hilary explores the concept of fear and fatigue as barriers to leadership growth. Drawing from her experience in helping individuals break down walls and be seen for her unique qualities, she highlights the significance of celebrating and finding value in all aspects of oneself, even the ones traditionally seen as negative.
    Hilary also challenges the current paradigm of leadership and management, advocating for a more human-centric approach that values individuality and comfort. We discuss the impact of imposter syndrome and jargon on effective communication and suggest alternative ways to embrace the complexity of language without resorting to simplification.

    Choose Your Boulders Wisely

    Choose Your Boulders Wisely

    In this episode of the Potential Leader Lab podcast, Perry Maughmer discusses the importance of choosing one's boulders wisely.
    The acceleration of achieving our goals depends on the force applied and the mass of the goal itself.
    We should focus on a few significant boulders rather than spreading our efforts across multiple ones. Reflect on what truly matters to you and ask yourself what you want most versus what you want now.
    We have the power we have to choose our boulders and to direct our energy towards meaningful pursuits.

    Why Success Sucks

    Why Success Sucks

    If we want things to change, we need to make different decisions and choices - which invariably require discomfort and risk. But as we become more successful, our propensity to take the risks required to evolve as both people and leaders becomes harder.
    Without a granular understanding of how you want your life to be different, it’s difficult to do the heavy lifting required to make evolution a reality.

    Nobody expects burnout to happen to them. But as our current professional environments demand more and more of our time, there is less energy and focus put on refilling the tank.
    In this episode, Mitch Harrison of Refill Coaching joins me to explore burnout, the need for rest, replenishment, and recuperation, and how the 5R framework is providing high-performance teams with the tools and resources to create balanced workplaces.
