    Living an Intentionally Full and Authentic Life with Darrin Johnson

    Can I be real with you for a moment? I mean, you listen to the podcast so I already know you’re a real one.

    OK, here I go: I'd rather have someone disappointed, upset, or disliking me for being 100% true to myself, than being a mere carbon copy of who they think I should be.

    And that’s a special kind of peace that I wish for you, too.

    In this episode that originally aired on the "I Dare You" podcast with Darrin Johnson, I spill the tea on how I was able to adopt this mindset. You’ll also get a (loving) kick in the pants that’ll inspire you to live a more authentic and purpose-driven life.

    Five Things My Team and I Do to Stay Productive and Reach Our Goals

    When it comes to building a *GREAT* team, let’s just say there are some lessons that I learned the not-so-easy way.

    But that’s ok… because now I’m able to share them with you. (worth it!)

    Some lessons were as simple and light as implementing mental health days (and scheduling them strategically.)

    Others, well, let's just say they stung a bit.

    In this episode, you’ll learn the exact strategies my team and I use to create a more productive, feedback-driven, and mentally healthy team culture. (Psst: I’m even giving you my exact team meeting formula to keep things movin’ and groovin’!)

    (00:01:04) What the whole team and I do (and don’t do) to increase productivity.

    (00:09:49) How the team and I improve, save time, and reach our goals faster.

    (00:16:52) Why we implemented monthly mental health days (and the details behind them).

    (00:17:54) The extra thought that has gone a *long way* for mental health days and holidays.

    (00:19:40) What every leader must do to foster trust and independence in the team.

    (00:21:22) The importance of not settling for mediocrity and continuously pushing for improvement.

    (00:23:06) The risks of complacency and what it can affect in your business.

    (00:24:09) The number one morale and productivity killer. (Avoid this at all costs!)

    (00:30:25) Your action step!

    How to Reach Your Fullest Potential (in Life and Business)

    How to Reach Your Fullest Potential (in Life and Business)

    Ever heard of Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft?

    Well, let’s just say that back in 2014, Microsoft was well, struggling hard. Their market shares were down, they had a not-so-stellar team culture, and they simply just lacked innovation overall compared to their competitors.

    When Nadella took over, he knew things had to change. And, so you know what he did? He started with himself, focusing on empathy and humility.

    He listened to his team and customers and made sure everyone had exactly what they needed to succeed.

    Under his leadership, Microsoft completely turned things around. They introduced new features and products, like AI and OneDrive. And they made a huge acquisition: LinkedIn, for $26.2 billion. Yep.

    In this episode, you’ll learn how aiming for your fullest potential serves everyone around you and how to apply my framework, the "three Ps of reaching YOUR fullest potential”, to your business.

    Click play to hear all of this and…

    (00:00:01) The truth about reaching your fullest potential.

    (00:01:05) Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and how it relates to business and personal growth.

    (00:04:13) Why you should intentionally seek discomfort.

    (00:06:14) The value of surrounding yourself with a diverse group of people.

    (00:08:15) What it means to practice intellectual humility.

    (00:14:44) How your own personal growth can impact the experience and satisfaction of your clients and customers,

    (00:18:07) How to sell to the highest need in the hierarchy.

    (00:20:26) The three Ps of reaching your full potential.
