Description

Discover the transformative power of self-aware leadership and emotional intelligence with our special guest, Lisa Nordquist, a certified health and wellness coach. Lisa shares her personal journey from struggling with self-care to fully embracing holistic wellness practices. Learn how the intrinsic connection between mind and body, mindset, and limbic learning processes can lead to sustainable well-being. Gain insight into the broader scope of self-awareness, encompassing mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical states, and the crucial role mindfulness plays in managing these interconnected aspects of life.

Explore the pivotal concept of psychological safety in leadership development. Drawing on Amy Edmondson's research and Google's Aristotle project, we discuss the creation of a safe environment that fosters innovation and collaboration within teams. We then shift to practical coaching strategies, emphasizing the balance between empathy and authority. Using engaging analogies, like the Mutant Ninja Turtles, we illustrate how leveraging individual strengths and addressing weaknesses can enhance team performance.

Delve into the nuances of personalized appreciation and its impact on employee engagement. We uncover how tailored recognition can significantly boost workplace morale and performance. The conversation extends to adaptable leadership styles and the importance of maintaining self-awareness and thoughtful responses. Additionally, we address effective coaching techniques for different generations, the necessity of social and relational intelligence amidst technological advancements, and the ongoing journey towards self-awareness in leadership. Join us for a compelling discussion that promises to enrich your leadership journey and equip you with practical tools for fostering a thriving and collaborative team environment.
