040: Be More Successful in Your Personal Power with Libby Stone

040: Be More Successful in Your Personal Power with Libby Stone

You Can Be More Successful in Your Personal Power

We all have a superpower: it’s recognising that we are more than capable of navigating our way through success. And this can be achieved if we’re able to step into the realm of our personal power. 

In this episode, I chat with Libby Stone who comes from an interesting background of theatre, TV, radio and is currently empowering people with the help of various coaching tools and programs.

Libby gives a delightful insight into how people can reclaim their life and power after feeling lost. Her meaning behind the word P.O.W.E.R provides the steps needed by an individual to take charge of his life and march on to success. 

For Libby, true personal power includes accepting the past, being open to oneself and others, willingness to learn from the past, embracing the moment and responding to present events. 

Real strength lies within personal power, it allows us to influence, make a difference and get to where we want to be.

038: Team Performance Tips for Business Success with Andrew Bull

038: Team Performance Tips for Business Success with Andrew Bull

Team Performance Tips

Managing a business is like weaving through various interpersonal relationships. These relationships can make or break a company; either the leader will get a team that is filled with tension or one that takes ownership. What can happen when team performance is low?

A team that is not performing well could lead to business and personal relationship failure. This can cause a number of issues including stress, absenteeism, anxiety and depression. Employees will have to work longer in a more stressful environment as well as spending less time with their friends and families.

In this episode, I chat with Andrew Bull, a business and life strategist. We discuss why having outstanding team performance is the true foundation of success. Andrew shares his Interstellar Way of Life philosophy where every single member of the team (leader included) takes ownership of their actions. 

When the team incorporates ownership, employees become engaged, they develop the right mindset, and they are able to perform at a high level.

037: Creating Strategy on Purpose with Alex Brueckmann

Strategy meets Purpose

Consumers and employees can see beyond the marketing facade of businesses. Large corporations especially are put under the spotlight on what they can offer to the people. 

It’s important for business owners to pair their purpose with impact or changes that they want to see in the community and the environment. 

Whether you are a solopreneur or a large organization, you need to understand that companies are seen as an integral part of the society. Once the government fails to address environmental and social concerns, business organizations need to step in.

In this episode, we are joined by Alex Brueckmann, who has been helping business owners formulate strategies that are practical and specifically helps companies with what needs to be done. 

Through his extensive 15 years of practice, Alex has developed the Nine Elements of Organizational Identity that leads to business strategies that move purpose into powerful impacts.
