Available on these channels and more

What can leadership learn from nature?

From operating in demanding, choppy waters with lives on the line, to the individualised attention each fishing catch needs, there are a great many similarities according to my guest in this episode, Oleg Konovalov.

As you’ll hear, it’s not just fishing but nature itself that can teach us about leadership. Oleg shares the lessons he has learned from his time as a fisherman that he now brings into his coaching practices.

We talk about the mindset leaders need to have as they seek to create better futures and make important decisions day in, day out. He also discusses how he avoids taking on passengers and what he learned from falling in icy waters.

You’ll hear about:

  • Words related to leadership
  • Myths about leadership
  • Nature as a leadership coach
  • How do you keep a clear head?
  • How being a master fisherman helps with mindset
  • How to avoid hiring passengers
  • Revealing strengths: the role of a leader
  • Developing a servant-based approach to leadership
  • Oleg’s experience falling into icy waters
  • The impact Oleg wants to have in the world
  • What helps Oleg do his best work?

The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Strategic Leader.
