    70 - How to Awaken Your Servant Leader with Katrijn Van Oudheusden

    70 - How to Awaken Your Servant Leader with Katrijn Van Oudheusden

    Welcome to the Kayleigh O’Keefe Show!
     
    What does it take to awaken our inner servant leader? That is the question that Katrijn Van Oudheusden helps aspiring servant leaders answer. Katrijn is an international bestselling author with her chapter in The X Factor: The Spiritual Secrets Behind Successful Executives and Entrepreneurs and is a coach to servant leaders around the world. In today’s episode, Katrijn teaches us the philosophy of letting the ego fall away and going with the flow to achieve a more fulfilling and less stressful life.
     
    Tune into this week’s episode of The Kayleigh O’Keefe Show to learn more about:
    • The concept of servant leadership
    • How to change your internal landscape and let go of your ego
    • How to become more attuned to your intuition
    • And why servant leadership lives within all of us!
     
    Quotes
    • “For the longest time, servant leadership has been out there as a set of qualities that leaders can embody and a moral ideal to strive for. I want to be a servant leader; I want to do good, be good, and be of service to others.” (3:20-3:40)
    • “For me, I found out that servant leadership is what we really are. It’s our true nature as human beings if we get our ego out of the way.” (5:04-5:16)
    • “We are not the control mechanism doing our lives. This is really key, because with servant leadership we think it’s something we need to figure out and then do.  But it’s the opposite. It’s not only seeing I can transcend this ego thing, this deficit thing. It’s also seeing: I’m not doing my life. I’m being lived. This body and this mind is here in this universe and this reality and it’s being lived and I can let go and flow with that.” (12:20-13:01)
    • “You see very clearly that what is happening is what is supposed to be happening because nobody is controlling anything.” (17:50-17:55)
    • “We have to fire our minds from the position of CEO. We’ve made the mind the CEO of everything. We think everything can be solved by using thinking or knowledge or the mind. And that’s not true, because our actual nature is more the heart or intuition or being in service, whatever name you give it, awareness, being. That’s also and maybe even more what we are than the mind. Because the mind appears to us. Thoughts appear to us and we don’t control them.” (31:44-32:27)

    69 - How to Master the World Within to Lead the Future of Corporate with Author Sasha Stair

    69 - How to Master the World Within to Lead the Future of Corporate with Author Sasha Stair

    Welcome to the Kayleigh O’Keefe Show!
     
    What will it take to lead the future of the corporate world? This is the question that Sasha Stair seeks to answer in her book The Inside Job: Master the World Within to Lead the Future of Corporate. The first solo author that has published with Soul Excellence Publishing, Sasha dives deep into the ins and outs of conscious leadership and what it takes to master your inner self, so you can thrive in work and in life. 
     
    Tune into this week’s episode of The Kayleigh O’Keefe Show to learn more about:
    • Sasha’s journey to becoming a solo author
    • How Sasha uses spirituality and intuition to powerfully inform her decisions
    • Why COVID has sparked a trust breakdown in many organizations
    • How to build the next generation of leaders while in your role
    • And why tapping into failure is a fundamental step towards success!
     
    Quotes
    • “It’s not being spiritual that creates that connection; it’s figuring out what works for you in order to build that relationship with yourself and be on your path of growth and become the leader that you so desire to be.” (06:25-06:39)
    • “If you’re all in and you’re willing to go there and do the work and show up authentically, vulnerably, that is where you will have not only fulfillment every day where you lay your head down to rest at night, but you’re also inspiring that in your teams and creating that environment, holding that container, for great leaders to come out of the ranks.” (15:05-15:25)
    • “If you feel like you can’t take what I’ve taught you and carry on, I missed a step. And I’ve found that I need to shift how I mentor at that level while I’m at a company, so that when I leave that torch can carry on.” (16:57-17:15)
    • “I keep getting attracted to supporting these women who are empowered, embodied, conscious leaders, just like I want to create in the world.” (26:20-26:29)
    • “The success of failure is being able to fail without feeling like a failure. And, I think so often companies, whether it’s failure, innovation, culture, they’re like, ‘Hey, we want to create a culture of fail fast. We want to create a culture of innovating.’ But, they don’t live it!” (29:42-29:58)
