Growth Think Tank (fka "Leaders in the Trenches")

Have you ever wondered how it feels to be coached? The experience is not comfortable. You get insight into how you see the world and how you could see it. Your coach has a different perspective and is not emotionally attached to the way you currently are being and what you are doing. Today's special guest is Cameron Herold who is the former COO of 1-800-Got-Junk, author of many books, founder of the COO Alliance and has many other accomplishments. I admire Cameron so much that I thought I would let him coach me on strategies for growth in my business. If you want to know how it feels to be coached, this episode shows you behind the scenes of the coaching experience. Cameron shares with me new strategies that are perfect for me.

Leadership effectiveness is more determined on what you let go of what you keep doing. Let's start with a question. Do you know who Marie Kondo is? She is the author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I have been watching the Netflix show with Marie Kondo. I started thinking about how leadership effectiveness and cleaning up are very closely related. I am sharing a personal side of me today to share insights on leadership effectiveness. You can learn from this story and make improvements in your leadership effectiveness.

Even the most talented and accomplished leaders benefit from working with an executive coach. In today’s episode, I share with you the benefits of having an executive coach. The biggest reason of all is results. To lead others through times of growth, you must grow yourself. It is hard. And it is required. An executive coach can give you insight into your personal limitations that keep you from growth. Working with an executive coach early in my business growth allowed me to go beyond a million in revenue to get to five million within three years. Tune-in today to get the benefits of an executive coach.

How to manage overwhelm with one quick exercise. I have been feeling overwhelmed lately. My clients feel overwhelmed too. That is one reason why they have a coach. This past Monday I had to take some time to decompress and think about my work, projects, and clients. I know that overwhelm is an emotion that pulls energy away from me being my best leader. I decided to do what I call “The Overwhelm Time Bubble” exercise. This is a simple tool I use with my clients…and this time I did it for myself. I wanted to get a clearer idea of all the work that I must do.

Today, I am sharing with you this simple — no-cost — exercise to help you manage overwhelm. In this video, you will get a view of what I face to grow my business, and you can walk along with me using “The Overwhelm Time Bubble” exercise.
