In the show this week
Sue’s been helping business owners to find their inner super hero (no small ask at Breakfast time!) and Sherry’s been checking out where her LinkedIn clients are hiding their lights under bushels! (01.25 – 08.44)
This week we chew over an issue commonly faced by senior leaders in organisations, entrepreneurs and small business owners alike…. isolation and loneliness in leadership. There’s no doubt that leadership can be lonely, and it’s important to have strategies in place to keep you on track, to help you connect & communicate with those around you (and yourself!), and to ensure you stay fully aligned with your purpose – the big Why that led you to this leadership opportunity. We explore some of those strategies and share our own experience of what we’ve learned so far in our own leadership journeys. (08.45 – 28.50)
Momentum is critical in getting past the Tipping Point! Sue’s been grasping opportunities with both hands, not just speaking but also accepting an invitation to talk about Team Building on BBC radio. Sherry gets really honest about an area that’s not gathering momentum….. yet, which prompts a quick discussion on the importance of chunk size in getting things going! (28.55 – 35.05)
Sue introduces us to her six year old neighbour who knows how to ask for what he wants – with a clarity that can be very helpful to us in business. Sherry’s been inspired and deeply moved by the work of Helen Bennett, who helps teenagers to build self confidence and self esteem through creating the opportunity for them to have dinner and discussion with local business leaders. Inspirational! (35.10 – 40.30)
Sue notices that our discussion has prompted her to give some thought to how she adds even more ‘wow’ to her work with clients, and Sherry is looking forward to achieving the right level of balance between family and business during the holidays. (40.32 – 42.50)
