The LeaderShift Project with Shani Magosky

By As Seen On

Shani and I discussed the inspiration behind the book, taking an uncomfortable risk that ends up being a game changer, the REWIRE Framework, making learning stick, stimulating cognitive flexibility, creating meaningful lasting change, using intentionality & agility to respond in a more creative & open-minded way, and producing the impact we desire as leaders.

We played with applying these concepts to helping leaders and their teams shift their mindsets about the outcome of the U.S. Presidential election and other factors that are distracting people at work and at home these days.

Don’t miss this highly engaging and practical discussion!

Episode 28: We need our heads AND our hearts with David Taylor Klaus

David and I explore what it means to live and lead with the head and the heart. We discuss how money can distract us from the things that are important to us and how we can reconnect with our hearts by going deep with our values. David shares the story of how he discovered his life’s work and what it means to be a heart-centered leader. We also discuss what “bully values” are and emphasize the power of language to reflect and create how we think of the world.

“There’s knowing in one’s head and knowing in one’s heart. Connect with both, so you don’t enter a boxing ring with one arm tied behind your back”
— David Taylor-Klaus

LeadChange – “Dare Yourself to Face Tough Situations”

By As Seen On

We’re nearly seven months into this pandemic, and many of us are still grappling with assembling some version of the “new normal.” Many of us have had to make tough decisions and carve new paths forward. However, some of us are still frozen in place, waiting for things to go back to the way they always were or are avoiding taking that uncertain first step forward.

You may be stewing over whether to find a new job with more flexibility or quitting your job altogether to stay home to assist the kids with virtual learning. Or maybe it’s the prospect of launching a new business or a new product line that has you frozen in place. In any case, the time spent circling the worry drain is energy expended … energy wasted.

What if, instead, you spent that energy envisioning how brilliant it could be on the other side? What if you spent the time imagining a positive future beyond the difficulty that’s coming?

Quoted in Forbes: Feeling Isolated? 13 Ways To Combat Loneliness In Entrepreneurship

By As Seen On

Acknowledge How You Feel. You’re not alone in feeling alone. Loneliness is a common experience for entrepreneurs. The first step in combating loneliness, as in all challenges, is to acknowledge your feelings. The most critical step is next: Remove the judgment. Once you’ve acknowledged where you are and have given yourself a break for feeling that way, then you can begin to reach out and take action to change it.”

When you rise to the top of your field or become the head of an organization, the old adage about how lonely it can be at the top often starts to ring true. To validate the sacrifices you’re making—and perhaps to distract yourself from the pressure of working solo much of the time—you may up your load, trying to bring every big idea to life. Although many entrepreneurs lose themselves in their work in this way, no one can escape the fact that humans are social animals by nature, and being disconnected from others will eventually impact your health.
