Leadership & the Power of Self-Discipline with John Eades
Some of the highlights of the show include:
- Eades and Wiesehan discuss the humbling experience that often comes early on in the lives of leaders — you realize that you owe it to those below you to elevate them and treat them well. If there is a failure, which there likely will be, you have no one to blame but yourself.
- Small habits — with an overarching positive goal — compound over time in both life and business.
- If you do things the right way in business — treat your team, customers, etc. right — everything else will come.
- Eades and Wiesehan discuss the concept of habit formation and the differentiation between habits and behavior. Habits are unconscious but are formed after repeating some sort of action 21-66 times, while behavior is something you consciously do.
- Eades discusses the fundamental nature of self-discipline, “the willingness and the ability to sacrifice what you want now for what you want more later on,” and the role it’s played in his life.
- Eades and Wiesehan also dive into their respective relationships with other influential men in their lives. For both Eades and Wiesehan, they credit their fathers but also touch on the complexities of those relationships. Eades also discusses his faith walk and the impact his brother, a Catholic priest, has had on him throughout life and during COVID-19.
- Wiesehan discusses the Latin word, apokaradokía, that, in essence, means the act of stretching the head forward or looking forward. Eades also lends a Latin phrase, nunc incipere, that means, “Now I begin.” These mentalities sum up the hopefulness and positivity both speakers have and their dedication to always strive to be better.
- The two end the podcast discussing Eades’ book: Building the Best: 8 Proven Leadership Principles to Elevate Others to Success and Eades’ points of contact.
