Tony's in Canton, Massachusetts is a PCC coach with the International Coach Federation and learned a long time ago that values and our daily work need to be aligned. By widening his vision to see the new opportunity he was able to then narrow his focus to something new that was more in his calling from biotech financial analyst to PCC coach and leadership development facilitator. In this interview, we explore the use of metaphor leading from behind horse leadership of all things. We explore the value of deep personal connection and navigating change as a leader and how to engage the team in navigating that change. As always, I learned a lot. I hope you do too.

Ep.36 Why Leadership Coaching Works. Guest Lisa Sansom, PCC, Positive Psychology Focus. Ontario, Canada
34:20Connect with Lisa Sansom on LinkedIn Connect with Nate Leslie on LinkedIn Listeners, you've probably heard me say…”this conversation was fun, inviting you to listen. But today with Lisa Sansom, I swear we thread elements of all the episodes that have preceded this one into this one conversation. Lisa is a professional certified coach with the ICF and has been for a long time. She has an MBA. She has a master's in applied positive psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, which is where we spend most of our time talking about that thread between coaching with that layer of positive psychology on it. If you lead people, if you aspire to be a leader, if you are at all curious about the value of coaching and what high performance leadership means with a positive view that will actually change your life personally, as well as professionally. Honestly, this is the conversation. I was introduced to Lisa by episode 22's Eileen Schaeffer. Episode 22 was the number one listened to episode in all of 2022. So I think we have two friends competing for the title here in 2023. With no further adieu, the balance and the layering and the correlations between positive psychology and executive coaching, Lisa Sansom. Enjoy. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/nathan-leslie/message
Ep. 35 Sorry, I Will Start Telling Better Stories. Guest - Author & Master Storyteller Mark Carpenter. Utah, USA
37:51Connect with Nate Leslie - www.nateleslie.ca Connect with Mark Carpenter - www.masterstorytelling.com - Mark Carpenter (Master Storytelling) Thank you so much, Nate. I'm just thrilled to be here with you. As I've listened to a couple of the episodes of your podcast, there's a couple of things that really resonate with me. The first is in that intro that everybody just heard about how the command and control style of leadership is dead. When I first heard that on your podcast, I was jumping up and down for joy. And other people see that the same way that I do. And the other statement is gonna be on the outro that everybody will hear in a little while. And that is about how our brains behave differently when they're invited or encouraged to think rather than told to listen. And that resonates with my heart because I totally believe that. And that's why I'm in the world that I'm in and teaching people how to use storytelling as a way to teach, lead, and inspire, because that's what's gonna encourage people to think. And it gets us past that command and control style of leadership. So thank you for the work that you're doing and for setting the foundation that I think is fantastic. @12:28 - Nate Leslie (nateleslie.ca) Thanks, Mark, your master storytelling, your book, I can see the cover over your shoulder. We'll link to it in the show notes. I see this light bulb exploding. Let's go there right off the hop here. The difference between receiving instruction or receiving info from a document or in a course to turning it into a story, what is so compelling for you about it? @12:51 - Mark Carpenter (Master Storytelling) And one thing you can't see from this distance with the cover of the book is that little light bulb there. It's a bunch of people. @12:58 - Nate Leslie (nateleslie.ca) It's all made up of little people. @13:00 - Mark Carpenter (Master Storytelling) And so it really ties into how our brains work and how our brains think. That idea of inviting people to think rather than telling them to listen, story will do that, think about this, have you been around little children very much, you ever been around like a toddler, an entire career of it for a while? --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/nathan-leslie/message
Ep.34 - Living on Purpose. Guest Amy Eliza Wong. Author, Executive Coach, Facilitator. Berkeley, CA
32:47Connect with Nate Leslie: https://www.linkedin.com/in/natelesliecec/ Connect with Amy Eliza Wong: https://www.linkedin.com/in/amyelizawong/ Get a copy of Amy's new book Living on Purpose: https://amzn.to/3BG6zAy Amy Eliza Wong is the founder of Always On Purpose®. She is an executive leadership coach, author, and facilitator working with organizations such as Salesforce, Roku, LinkedIn, and more. Amy offers transformative leadership development and cutting-edge communication strategies to executives and corporate teams around the world, as well as institutions including Stanford University and the University of California at Berkeley. She pulls from various disciplines, studies, and practices to find a consilient approach to achieve genuine, lasting success - what she refers to as ‘‘the fundamentals of thriving.” Amy's debut book, Living on Purpose, shows readers how to feel more connected to the people around them and be truly satisfied by the life they’re leading. It was released at the end of May 2022, and within less than a week it became an Amazon Bestseller in Work-Life Balance and Business Communication Skills. @12:08 - Nate Leslie (nateleslie.ca) When you think about your book, living on purpose, leadership and executive coaching, whose lives do you think will be impacted most, who are going to listen to this conversation today? @12:24 - Amy Wong (alwaysonpurpose.com) Yeah, great question. So the book really has been written for and who's going to benefit from this conversation is the individual who really is committed to doing well in the world and whether that's by an external standard, internal standard. It's that, you know, they're relatively ambitious. They're relatively committed. They do the work to to quote unquote thrive. And really who this book is written for is for all the folks that have done it, quote unquote, right? And still feel totally unfulfilled. Or you can look at your life on paper and say, wow, I have no reason to be quote unquote unhappy, but yet there's something missing. And it's definitely for the individual that recognizes it's not going to be doing more of the same. I just don't know what to do different. And so who's going to really benefit from our conversation today is the individual who feels that way. It's like, gosh, I'm so close to genuine inner peace. And I know I'm getting in my own way. I get that it's not going to be a bigger title. I get that it's not going to be more money, even though I swear to God, my head is convincing me that's the case. I just don't know what it is. And so that's what I think people have to look forward to is what is that and how do we have to come back? --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/nathan-leslie/message

I see you posting on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram, appearing on guest blogs and podcasts, creating your content, sharing your story, perfecting your elevator pitch, working out the kinks in your about page, learning the ins and outs of copy that converts and sales pages that sell. I see you doing all the right things, checking all the boxes, showing up, diving in, giving it your all and then some. Your drive, your devotion, and your ambition are practically tangible. I see you plagued with self doubt, uncertain whether you have what it takes to make this entrepreneurial thing work. mistakes, vacillating between a mindset of abundance and opportunity, and one of anxiety and self condemnation, desperately trying to brave the storms in your business and your life as the winds swirl and the rain pours. I see you. I see you because I am you. I know all too well what it's like to have a dream, a passion, a desire for something great. When I began my coaching business, I wanted to change the world by connecting with mindful, energized, motivated people who wanted to love their work and their lives. I saw myself serving people powerfully and changing lives. Then shortly after I began my vision clouded. These are just a few words in the letter to the intrepid entrepreneur from my guest today, former psychotherapist and social worker, now executive coach working with entrepreneurs, Lee Shea McDonough, author of Act on Your Business. This is a great conversation where we explore the intersection between therapy and coaching, entrepreneurship, and values leading the decisions that we make as entrepreneurs. Once again, I love the conversation. I hope you do too. Thanks for listening. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/nathan-leslie/message
