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!
In this episode of The Transformative Leader Podcast, I’m excited to bring you a discussion with leadership expert, speaker, and consultant, Beth Wonson. Beth understands that often traditional leadership training is absent for those moving into leadership positions, leaving them to ill-prepared for the challenges they will face. And even when training is present, it usually falls fall short of equipping people with the skills and mindset they need to thrive and succeed, both in terms of results and satisfaction. All in all, it was a great conversation with great leader doing the hard work of creating more leaders, and I hope you give this episode a listen!
In this episode of The Transformative Leader Podcast, I’m excited to bring you a discussion with consultant, author, TEDx speaker, and entrepreneur, Moe Carrick. Moe seeks to help people thrive in the companies for which they work and grounds her approach in a unifying and undeniable truth: successful work is dependent on human relationships. Recognizing that most of us spend most of our lives at work, and that consequently, work plays a huge role in the meaning and satisfaction we experience in life, Moe offers a fresh, honest, and direct roadmap for leaders everywhere who seek to make their workplace “fit for human life.” This message, about the absolute indispensability of “soft skills“ and taking care of the human side of work, is relevant to leaders in all organizations, at every level, as well as those in development, HR, OD, coaching, and consulting who advise others about organizational culture, leadership, structures, and teams.
