In this episode of The Transformative Leader Podcast, I’m excited to be bringing you a powerful discussion with transformational coach, speaker, and author, Maki Moussavi. Maki is a fellow corporate career veteran, who, like many high achievers, grew up with messages of working hard, chasing the dream, getting degrees, and making money. However, after achieving the “success” she had always wanted, she still felt stuck, restless, and unsatisfied. Soon, she realized that “success“ wasn’t all it was cracked up to be after all. This experience led to Maki turning her attention to an often neglected area in business and in life: what it takes to find fulfillment no matter where you are. Now, Maki focuses on guiding fellow high achievers and executives through the journey of personal development, coaching them through the deep work of transforming their mindset to achieve fulfillment in addition to their success. This was a great conversation with a fascinating guest about a very important and powerful topic, so this is another episode that listeners can’t afford to miss!
Today’s post is about a topic that most people, even highly educated and successful people, often know very little about or pay little attention to. It is about how personal financial habits have far-reaching implications on the quality of your life and the amount of career satisfaction you will experience, no matter where you are on your journey. This post is not about necessarily elevating one method over any others, but just about the value of financial integrity in general, how it has benefited The Ghannad Group personally and professionally, and how it can do the same for you. And fair warning: this is going to be a long one.
The title of this post has probably already driven some people away and it may have some of you who decided to check it out wondering, “What does love got to do with leadership?” My answer is, of course, “Everything!” That may sound way too “kumbaya,” but I’m not going to apologize for it because it’s the truth. The bottom line is that if you do not love your people, you will fall short in leading them and you will most certainly not serve them to the best of your ability.
