Who IS the boss of you? Ten concepts we can learn from the leadership traits of CEOs to apply to our wellness journey
What do CEOs have in common with those of us on our wellness journey? Quite a lot it would seem!
I discuss how we go about using the tips and tricks of the world’s greatest leaders to structure our own lives and journeys towards becoming calmer, more optimistic human beings.
There are plenty of my personal experiences in here, too, which I hope will inspire you to start taking baby steps on your own journey!
0-3: Welcome, and information about the free guide I’m offering to listeners!
3-10: Prioritising what to do, and how not to take on too much at once.
10-16: Seeking expert help – we are not islands, and it’s okay to reach out to therapists, and other helpers.
16-20: Delegate domestic jobs to partners, friends, family, cleaners, whoever you need! Don’t try to do everything yourself.
20-25: Communicating with others how we feel is vital: a company doesn’t work without communication, and nor do our domestic relationships.
25-28: If we don’t commit to maintaining our vision of where we want to go, we will struggle. It takes time to head in the right direction, and that’s why it’s so vital to retain commitment for however long it takes.
28-31: Quote of the episode.
31-37: Risk management means being prepared, but not being panicked by undesirable situations. How I plan in advance of events that I think may have unwanted elements, and how I accept things that are beyond my control.
37-42: Teamwork and collaboration are vital to business – the best CEOs make every member of the company relate to them because they give ‘face time’ to their employees. In life, we need to avoid isolation to stay healthy.
42-46: Changes sometimes require us to make last minute changes to our vision. The danger of being blinkered to what’s going on around us is that we refuse to make decisions / change direction.
46-52: Office politics determine company ethics, and overall behaviour of the employees. In our domestic environment, I discuss how negative self-talk and certain relationships can be dangerous to our overall wellbeing.
52-56: Performance measurement – and its importance to wellbeing, goals and taking a realistic view of where we are at on our wellness journey.
