Stephen Dunns was a career CEO and now teaches about leadership and is exploring a new realm in the shadow side of leadership. What happens when virtues become vices? We discuss the impact of your ‘emotional wake’, the tension in wanting a hero leader but resenting them when we get them, the fact that we want to be in control but no one wants to be controlled. We get to hear Stephen reflect and share the path that went from feedback that gutted him, to being inquisitive, inclusive and a true leader in walking the talk. This is the [...]

It can take a lot to achieve a goal and sometimes we need support to hold ourselves accountable. There are plenty of resources that talk about apps and mindset, advising you to measure progress and manage your energy not your time, great I love all of those, but this is really focusing on practical accountability support. If you’re already clear about why you want to achieve, a specific goal and have a good understanding of what the benefits of achieving it are, here is something that might help.

By | February 22nd, 2017|Productivity, Self-Awareness, Small Business, Uncategorized|
