With a very unique and expansive background, today’s guest brings a totally different perspective to the topic of leadership. Peter Docker, author of the book Leading From the Jumpseat, joins the podcast today and how his experience in multiple and vastly different career fields have prepared him to be a successful leader and keynote speaker.
Today’s guest, Abdallah Aljurf, is a consultant working with leaders in the Middle East. His extensive background has given him the experience necessary to guide organizations and companies to leadership success and his passion for coaching is evident in this interview. In this episode, we focus on the skills needed in leadership, the pitfalls of new leaders, and integrity. What is integrity and why is it important in business leadership? How can you demonstrate integrity in everything you do?
According to today’s guest, everyone has a leadership voice, whether they know it or not. But unfortunately, most people don’t know their leadership voice or how to use it. Not only that, but most people don’t understand the voices of others and thus creates a communication conundrum. That’s where the 5 Voices comes in. Jeremie Kubicek joins me today as we talk about the design of the 5 Voices and its impact on organizations.
Today’s guest is Dr. Bob Nelson who is an expert on the subject of employee recognition and engagement. He is the author of several books, but today we hone in on the topic of making work fun and his most recent publication Work Made Fun Gets Done: Easy Ways to Boost Energy, Morale, and Results. This topic is badly needed right now during the “great resignation” which Dr. Nelson discusses in this interview.
In her most recent book, Drinking From a Different Well, author Annette Simmons looks at the “genius of women’s narratives about power.” After reading the book myself, I highly recommend it to both women and men in leadership. It is both challenging and fascinating, helpful and informative, because whatever we say about progress, there’s more to be done for equality in this space.
In this unique episode, my invited guest turned the tables and decided that he would be interviewing me. Although not at all what was planned, ultimately this experience was a fun way to discuss today’s topic of developing a successful coaching business. How do you start? What are the most important components? When is the right time? There is a lot to consider and learn in this endeavor.
