“Your level of success rarely exceeds your level of personal development”
One of my all-time favourite quotes, and one that so perfectly ties into this week’s new PPMP episode with Michelle Terkelsen – one of the Founders and Managing Directors of People Leaders, alongside Jan Terkelsen (who couldn’t make it this time around, but will be joining us to share even more leadership insights in a 2.0 episode in the coming weeks).
From revealing what they do with their Mastermind Programs, to their experience during COVID 2020 and their observations about leadership at the time, this episode is chock-a-block with valuable leadership insights for all allied health business owners.
Self-leadership is a prevalent topic in this episode. It really urges us to stop and think about whether we’re investing in ourselves enough. Because, as I always say, your business is rarely going to be better than you are.
When was the last time you looked to expand your leadership toolkit? Have you stepped into your leadership power yet?
Another highlight of the episode is certainly our discussion on Leadership Shadows. You’ll have to give it a listen to fully understand what I’m talking about, but a glimpse into the concept is that it’s all about lighting up those blind spots to put you back on the right path.
You are in some ways metaphorically training to run a marathon in business. Just like training properly for a marathon in a way that suits your abilities, finding your leadership power is about doing those sustaining practices that are unique to you, relevant, and impactful.
It’s not about what you do and don’t do, it’s about your commitment to yourself and stepping into your leadership power.
I’ll leave you with this gem to think about:
How are you prioritising your own leadership development?
