Eternal Leadership (general)

The 5 factors that are crucial for emotionally intelligent leadership

What makes a great leader?

Emotional IntelligenceWe all know, or have heard stories of, highly skilled people in business who have been promoted to a leadership position only to fail.  We also know of others that while seemingly average get promoted to a leadership position and have excelled!  What is the difference?

"There was a study done at Stanford, their business council, on what's the number one skill that people need to be successful in life.  This council said that it was self-awareness" - Fran LaMattina

In this episode Fran shares what emotional intelligence (EI) is, how it is a learned skill, and its application to leadership.  Daniel Goleman in his article  on 'What Makes A Leader' in the Harvard Business Review states that the higher the rank of a person considered to be a star performer, the more emotional intelligence capabilities showed up as the reason for his or her effectiveness.

These are the components of EI that Fran will walk you through:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Self-Regulation
  • Motivation
  • Empathy
  • Social Skill

What it Takes to Be Extraordinary in All You Do

We often accomplish more by doing less. Activity is the anesthesia of the modern person. When we stay insanely busy we think we are accomplishing something but we are just staying insanely busy. Ask yourself, what’s important and am I accomplishing it!

"We all have same number of hours and minutes in a day. It’s what we do with those that determine if we have an ordinary or extraordinary life." - Mark Sanborn

The Most ImportantMark Sanborn was recently named to the Top Leadership Experts to Follow in 2015.  His best selling book The Fred Factor: How Passion in Your Work and Life Can Turn the Ordinary into the Extraordinary reveals a clear path to an extraordinary life

How do you define extraordinary? It is something that stands out. Ordinary is unremarkable. We don’t remember the ordinary. Sameness is a bad business and life strategy.

Savor what you are able to create and do. Mark explains that we are in one of three places in our lives

  • Stuck
  • Struggling
  • Successful – We run the risk of becoming stuck, just stuck at a higher level.

When stuck you need a push and a plan. You need to do the work yourselves but we can encourage others and find encouragement for ourselves.

Your plan should define what success looks like but we often lack clarity on the outcome we want.  We assume that people without clarity haven’t taken time to define what they want. It could be the case that you just don’t know what you want. You might need to do more things, try more things and it would give you perspective.

Don’t get into a state where you don’t move forward until you have perfect clarity.

Sometimes people are afraid to aspire to more. Successful people are not afraid to aspire higher. It’s about aiming a little higher so you get more than you would have gotten.

Live life fully!  Try a lot of things and be intentional about what success looks like.

 “The appetite for significance is at an all time high, yet most people have no idea where or how to identify their gifts and talent—and to connect to their passions. And that’s my love for Halftime. Nothing satisfies more than to help a man or woman say, ‘This is what God has for me to do.’”   — Dean Niewolny, Halftime Institute CEO

 

You are probably going to live a whole adult lifetime that wasn’t available to your parents and grandparents.

Their life expectancy at birth was 50 years. We have two lifetimes now. Life I is what occurs before halftime, and Life II comes afterwards. Most people have a pretty good plan for Life I, but few can see their way forward into Life II.

Halftime is the in-between season that occurs at about age 45, plus or minus a few years. It’s the time first described in the book, Halftime – the season of “now what?” In our time, halftime really marks the end of Life I and the beginning of this whole new second adult season that we’ve identified as Life II or the second half. Halftime used to be the beginning of the end. Now it is the beginning of a whole new beginning: a season that for many has turned out to be the richest and most meaning-filled season of all.

Peter Drucker once told Bob Buford, “The strongest insight you had in Halftime was that there is more than one lifetime.”

Life II takes most people by surprise. Most people are unprepared and they are searching for meaning in mid-life.

The Halftime Institute is the leading authority on creating a second half defined by joy, impact and balance.  We’ve served thousands of men and women from varied backgrounds. We also serve organizations like Kingdom Advisors, Young Presidents Organization (YPO) and World Presidents Organization (WPO).

"God has a plan for each and every one of us and He wants us to live in this sweet spot." - Dean Niewolny

 You will learn

  • How to find your passion
  • How to find your Ephesians 2:10 calling
  • The steps to discover how God wired you and the incredible potential that unlocks
  • How to find perfect clarity on the life you want to create for yourself
  • How God sees success and what that means for you

Bio

Dean NiewolnyDean Niewolny spent 23 years in executive roles with three of Wall Street’s largest financial firms, finishing his career in the financial sector as market manager for Wells Fargo Advisors in Chicago, where he oversaw a $100mm market. While in Chicago, he and his wife, Lisa, traveled many times to Africa and, seeing the abject needs of widows and orphans, made life changes that enabled them to get involved, such as helping to complete an orphan home and a Hospice home in Durbin, South Africa.

In 2010, Dean traded his marketplace career for Halftime to help more people who, like him, wanted to expand their own “first half” success and skills into passion and purpose for meeting human needs and making a significant difference. Dean joined Halftime as managing director and in 2011 became chief executive officer. He speaks at events around the world, encouraging business leaders to channel first-half achievement into a second half defined by joy, impact and balance.

Having grown up playing sports—eventually in college and semi-professional baseball—Dean still enjoys coaching youth sports, especially his son’s little league teams. He and Lisa have two children and live in Southlake, Texas.

"It's amazing how the human mind works.  If you think you can, you can. If you think you can’t, you can’t. You’ve got to be careful what you put in your mind, because you’ll soon be there.” –Jerry Anderson

 

 In this episode, Jerry Anderson shares how he discovered the key to turning multiple business failures into phenomenal success was this: character development.  He changed his mentality with clients from “I hope they buy” to “I need to help them be successful.”  He adds, “Sometimes I cared about their business more than they did!” 

 

 Jerry saw immediate results from his change in perspective and he realized that he could help others achieve the same results in their lives.  He started round table groups to mentor businesspeople in the areas of character and values.  His teaching spread to other parts of the world; suddenly, he was helping transform governments and cultures!  Jerry can help you start your own round table group, or change the values and attitudes in your workplace or business.  He has even started to bring these values-based programs to schools; grades have gone up and bullying has dramatically decreased.

 

 “When I’m doing the right things, the right things happen and I don’t have to create them.  I just show up.” –Jerry Anderson

How to develop your own character to transform your business

How to discern what should and should not be going into your brain

 

How to be open and available for incredible opportunities

How to bring positive values back to your own sphere of influence

There is deep value in creating meaningful relationships.



It is through building relationships that we can truly be servant leaders and add value to others. Our guest Judy Robinett shares how she went from a shy small-town girl to the pinnacles of the business world by doing just that. Judy shares practical steps on what it means to give before you get!

Judy Robinett shares how to build a network based on serving others. This is a critical factor for success in business, ministry and in life.

She grew up in a small town in Idaho of less than 300 people, so she has had to put in the time, effort and energy to build her network.  In addition, Judy had to overcome her shyness and emotional scars from years of being bullied in school.  Judy shares the turning point that created a shift in how she viewed relationships that changed the trajectory of her life.

The key is knowing the value of relationships and how to connect with people to build and solidify those relationships. She says it boils down to a few things; one of those is being in the right room.  You have to connect and bond with people who share your same values and passions and are willing to help; and you have to know the right rooms to find them in.

Regardless of where you are in your life, Judy says we all have the following to offer others:

  • Your ability to listen and be a friend.
  • Your willingness to put aside your own troubles and give them the gift of your time. Just talking it over with a trusted friend, solutions can be found to many problems.
  • Listening to someone allows them to know, like and trust you. And when someone knows you and likes you and trusts you, they are far more likely to help you with your problems and to connect you with their sphere of influence.

What you will Learn

  • A Biblical model for networking
  • How to find and connect with the people you need in your network
  • The three golden questions and when to ask them – These are powerful!
  • How to be authentic in asking your network for help
  • What it takes to leverage your network to add value to others
