Emergent Leader Podcast Episode 19: The Importance of Being an Energetic Leader

In this episode I talk about why it's so important to be an energetic person.  

As Tony Schwartz says, “Each of us has a finite reservoir of energy in any given day. Whatever amount of energy we spend obsessing about missteps we have made, decisions that do not go our way or the belief we have been treated unfairly is energy no longer available to add value in the world.” This is why it's so important to cultivate a mindset that is energetic and a body to match your mind. 

Did you know that energetic people typically get hired more easily, get raises more readily and can persuade audiences more frequently.  It's a fact- it pays to be energetic.  Still, you don't want to be perceived as overly "peppy" or "hyper" but rather, as someone with confidence enough to get the job done.

Emergent Leader Podcast Episode 18: How Blogging Makes You A Better Professional

In this episode of the Emergent Leader Podcast, I talk about how blogging isn't dead- in fact it's a sign of a true professional.  Companies that blog are more "with it" and will ultimately attract better talent.  For individuals too, blogging makes so much sense and in this episode, I explain why.

Emergent Leader Podcast Episode 17: Interview with Michael Sliwinski

In this new episode of the Emergent Leader Podcast, I had the privilege of talking with Michael Sliwinski of Nozbe.  Michael and I talk about teleworking, the success of remote teams and how to cut down on interruptions during the day.  

Michael is one of those persons that just exudes positive energy!  He's generous, ambitious and kind.  

I've used Nozbe for years and keep going back to it for my daily work.  Nozbe 3.0 was just released and celebrates nine years of "simply getting it all done".

Emergent Leader Podcast Episode 15: Guest Interview with Mark Sanborn

Have you ever wondered how some people deliver amazing results week after week and month after month?  In this episode of the Emergent Leader Podcast, I talk with Mark Sanborn, author and speaker.  Mark was an awesome guest- full of wisdom and really down to earth.  

Mark and I talk about several of his books, including The Fred Factor and You Don't Need a Title to be a Leader.  We also chat about productivity and the need for personal reflection.  Mark is someone who I could talk to for hours on end.  Since he's an author, his thoughts have all been synthesized into a cohesive curriculum for a career (and life) of excellence.
