On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, I am honored to have Lolly Daskal join me to discuss her book The Leadership Gap. Lolly Daskal is one of the most sought-after executive leadership coaches in the world. As founder and CEO of Lead From Within, her proprietary leadership program is engineered to be a catalyst for leaders who want to enhance performance and make a meaningful difference in their companies, their lives, and the world.
In this episode, we discuss:
–The Leadership Gap and shifting concepts of leadership
-Lolly’s RETHINK system which celebrates all archetypes and shadow traits of leaders
-Taking advantage of leadership gaps created by the imposter syndrome
-Making the leap from good to great leadership
-And so much more!
Everyone has a chance to be a leader in their current roles as Lolly states, “If you are impacting someone, if you are influencing someone, if you are advising someone and if people come to you for help, you’re a leader.” The one commonality to becoming a great leader is, “we have to learn to lead from within.”
From Fortune 500 executives to stay-at-home mothers, all leaders can identify with virtues and shadow traits outlined in her book. Lolly reminds us, “These are human beings… It is so universal.”
Leaders can create self-doubt by comparing themselves to others. Lolly believes that to be a strong leader, “We have to stop looking outward… look inward—that is where all the treasure is.”
The potential to be a better leader occurs every day and leaders should always strive to be better tomorrow. Lolly advices, “When we choose greatness, then we take the higher standard of who we are.”
