The Market Your Genius Podcast

Aug 22, 2023

If you want to be a powerful leader, you must first learn how to lead yourself

In this episode of the Market Your Genius Podcast, host Nikki Nash interviews coach Andy McDowell about the powerful concept of self-leadership. Discover how to elevate your leadership skills and create a thriving team culture.

Here are just a few takeaways from the episode:

1. **Shift from Human Doing to Human Being**: Are you just focused on results, or are you investing in building genuine relationships with your team members? Becoming a true self-leader means valuing the growth of your team members as individuals.

2. **Embrace Authenticity**: Encourage open conversations where team members can admit their areas for improvement and discuss how they're actively working on them. Authenticity breeds trust, loyalty, and a healthier work environment.

3. **Transform Fear, Shame, and Judgment**: Recognize that fear, shame, and judgment are natural emotions, but they can either hinder or drive growth. Instead of avoiding them, create an environment where they can be acknowledged and then transformed into tools for personal development.

4. **Invest in Your Team's Self-Leadership**: Foster self-leadership by providing an emotionally safe space for your team to explore their goals, challenges, and areas for growth. Support them in their journey to become the best versions of themselves.
