Episode in a Tweet: Those who educate themselves in the ways of Conscious Leadership will maximize their impact in the new world that is unfolding in front of our very eyes.
Background: Jeffrey Deckman’s mission is to help other small business people to grow their businesses without going through the headache he went through as a serial entrepreneur. He does this by sharing his keys to success:
- Understanding that human capital is more valuable than financial capital
- moving away from authoritarian operating to conscious leadership
- Empowering individuals to maximize the collective genius of the “tribe” and, consequently, increase their profits in a way they can implement in the real world
During the episode, Jeffery and I discuss how the days of command-and-control leadership are over and how the be effective; leaders must learn how to connect with their team members, tapping into what motivates them. We discuss why the journey inward to understanding oneself is the beginning of conscious leadership. We discuss the power of feedback, being coachable, and the freedom of knowing yourself, being okay with who you are, and always being authentic.
This is a fun and spiritual conversation that I know you’ll enjoy. Please have a listen and let me know what you think!
