#242: Reading Between The Lines Of Leadership

reading between lines

You’ve heard it said many times, “Readers are leaders”

This is absolutely true, however, leading is about more than just filling your head with a lot of stuff; it is about learning, and most importantly, implementing what you learn.

My guest today exemplifies what this looks like in every way! Jeff and I met earlier this year at a Ray Edwards event, and became fast friends. He is a wonderful leader, and has a beautiful heart.

Most notably, he is making a HUGE impact in our world.

I am incredibly excited to revisit his interview on the program. Let’s go right now to my exclusive interview with Jeff Brown.

When Life Revolves Around Relationship

Last week I shared about the time in life when we, as students, are desperate for a teacher. Tagging along after that, I want to unpack the importance of relationships, and even the importance of a single, strategic relationship.

Everything in life happens because of relationship. We were all created to relate to and with other people. We’re not supposed to be doing this thing called “life” all by ourselves. Every door that will ever open for you, every opportunity that will ever come to you, every promotion you’ll ever receive, every engagement or gig you’ll ever get in your work, if you take a good, hard genuine look, you’ll find all of those doors and opportunities opened because of a certain relationship.

I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.

#241: Monday Mastery – The Double Minded Dilemma

Welcome to our video blog and Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader Podcast with Brian Holmes! Each Monday, we provide a video & podcast audio segment designed to encourage, motivate, challenge, and develop you as a leader and influencer.

When we see what we want or even need to do, sometimes our head says yes but it is disconnected from our heart and we’re not sure we can do what we really want or need. Doubt leads to hesitation. Hesitation leads to failure. Failure creates shame and condemnation. Simply said, double mindedness leads to failure and shame! Let’s switch this around to thinking clearly and propelling us to success.

#240: Breaking Free From The Addiction Of Approval

Play

Hi. My name is Brian Holmes, and I am a recovering people pleaser. Before you get your feathers ruffled, I’m willing to bet you’re one, too!

Why do so many of us struggle with pleasing others and gaining their approval? What motivates us to say yes when we know we shouldn’t? Is it possible to break free from people-pleasing and performance-based approval?

In this episode, we’ll revisit an issue that seemed to resonate with so many of you and answer these questions and more as we talk about The Plague of People Pleasing and How You Can Break Free.

When the Student Is Desperate For a Teacher

There’s an old saying, though I’m not sure who to give credit to, that goes like this: “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”

It has nothing to do with universities or teacher shortages. As we go through life and make an intentional effort to develop our gifts, our talents, our skills, our leadership, and we’re becoming more competent in the things we’ve been called and created to do, we’re spending so much time growing.
