THE COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP SERIES

A special 5-part series on courageous leadership during an unprecedented time of COVID-19 and the global pandemic.

 

Meant to help more people show up and not shrink, but shine, so they can be their best for their company, organization, team, community and family. Available on all major podcast platforms.

THE COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP GUIDE

A guide to help you shine, not shrink, in leading a company, a team, a community or your family during an unprecedented time in our society.

PART I
PART II
PART III
PART IV
PART V

PART I: MINDSET. MESSAGING. MOVING FORWARD.

This is the first installment of a 5-part series on courageous leadership. COVID-19 and the global pandemic has put us in an unprecedented situation and we need more people showing up and not shrinking, but shining.

Yes, this means YOU and ME.

This series of solocasts will focus on mindset, messaging and moving forward, whether you’re leading a company, a team, a community or your family.

Let’s all be our best and OUTPERFORM together.

PART II: MINDSET. MESSAGING. MOVING FORWARD.

This is the second installment of a 5-part series on courageous leadership. COVID-19 and the global pandemic has put us in an unprecedented situation and we need more people showing up and not shrinking, but shining.

Yes, this means YOU and ME.

This series of solocasts will focus on mindset, messaging and moving forward, whether you’re leading a company, a team, a community or your family.

Let’s all be our best and OUTPERFORM together.

PART III: MINDSET. MESSAGING. MOVING FORWARD.

Courage: mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear or difficulty

I’ve had many conversations with coaching clients over the last few days on the current circumstances we’re all facing and the difficult decisions that are resulting from it.

Many of them are business-related. Stay open or close? And if you’re being forced to close, do you layoff people knowing they’re living paycheck to paycheck, or do you put the business at financial risk?

Heavy, hard questions that yield no easy answers.

Making difficult decisions is the common thread of this third installment and it can apply to any area of life:

PART IV: MINDSET. MESSAGING. MOVING FORWARD.

This is the fourth installment of a 5-part series on courageous leadership. COVID-19 and the global pandemic has put us in an unprecedented situation and we need more people showing up and not shrinking, but shining.

As courageous leaders, this means:

More anxiety must be met with more patience.

More pessimism must be met with more positivity.

More ambiguity must be met with more principle.

This is a call to YOU and ME to step up.

PART V: MINDSET. MESSAGING. MOVING FORWARD.

Covered in this episode is the seriousness of what’s happening in our society: death, sickness, suffering, isolation and financial devastation. None of these are laughing matters.

Still, sometimes, what matters is laughing, and there are scientific benefits for doing it that make it even MORE important now than ever before.

Beyond this, I discuss the importance of communicating by letting people see you and hear you, and the two questions we’re all going to need to ask ourselves as we move forward.

Keep leading courageously and let’s OUTPERFORM together.

“Leadership is a commitment to consistently showing up as your best, to influence and inspire others to see more, do more and become more, towards the achievement of a goal or worthwhile ambition.”

Scott Welle

Outperforming Leaders Are Not Born.
They're Made.

Great leaders have exceptionally high standards, are able to persevere through change and conflict, and have the ability to consistently get the best out of others in working towards a common, shared goal.

Outperformers know:

Leadership is not a position. Your title or position on the organizational chart doesn't guarantee leadership.

Leadership is not a paycheck. Digits and decimal points have nothing to do with people following a direction.

Leadership is not a personality type. Introverts or extroverts. Thinkers or feelers. Commanding or compassionate. Leaders come in all shapes and sizes.

Leadership is a privilege. It is a not a right, and if you’re reading this right now, leading others is a tremendous opportunity and a blessing.

Leadership is power. Leaders have followers, and this mass can be used for good or bad. As an Outperformer, I know that you seek the former.

Leadership is people. We manage things (budgets, KPI’s, metrics, targets, etc.). We lead people.
