Available on these channels and more

How do you create purposeful success?

As a leader it can be challenging to define what success means to you. To achieve this, you need to master your inner journey by reflecting, collaborating, and reinventing yourself.

My guest in this episode, Paolo Gallo, is an expert in developing leaders who do just that. We talk about the importance of foundational beliefs that guide how leaders think and behave. As well as how we should think about what success means, and what it implies for who you spend your time with, and what you spend your time on.

We reflect on what it takes to refresh and reinvent your identity as you look to amplify and enhance your leadership impact. Paolo also discusses why leaders can have such narrow definitions of success.

You’ll hear about:

  • Why personal beliefs are important to Paolo
  • Paolo’s most important belief
  • How do so many people lose their identity?
  • What leads to narrow definitions of success?
  • What does it take to find peace with oneself?
  • Knowing yourself vs playing the outer game
  • Achieving spiritual levels of leadership
  • Myths about leadership

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