Aidan McCullen: Developing a reinvention mindset
How do you develop a reinvention mindset?
Who better to talk with than Aidan McCullen, who’s used this mindset as he’s moved from being a professional rugby player, to commentator, to innovation leader, to transformational consultant, keynote speaker, and host of the successful Innovation Show. He talks about what it takes to reinvent yourself, how to think about your mindset (your ‘software’) and how to look after yourself as you experience discomfort and anxiety. Aidan emphasises the importance of a ‘fuzzy’ vision to help guide you as you make important decisions.
You’ll hear about:
- What is mindset?
- How to manage yourself to make wise decisions
- Improve yourself to reinvent yourself
- Managing anxiety as you go through reinvention
- The importance of a vision
- Aidan’s process of learning storytelling
- What has most inspired Aidan from his podcast?
- Misconceptions about discipline and innovation
- What does Aidan struggle with?
- What impact does Aidan want to have on the world?
The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Strategic Leader.
