My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is one of the most sought-after executive leadership coaches in the world. Her extensive cross-cultural expertise spans 14 countries, six languages and hundreds of companies. She has written thousands of articles, columns, speeches and presentations. She is the author of two books: Trust Inc and Thoughts Spoken from the heart, where she brings expertise to her work that is grounded in behavioral and psychological principles along with 30 years of experience. She has worked across a wide range of industries and organisations within corporate, nonprofit, government, and business development domains, encouraging, pushing and setting guidelines for achieving high and consistent performance And now after decades of coaching powerful executives around the world, our guest has observed that leaders rise to their positions relying on a specific set of values and traits. But in time, every executive reaches a point when their performance suffers and failure persists. Very few understand why or how to prevent it. And she has bound up all this knowledge within the covers of her new book “The Leadership Gap” what gets between you and your greatness which is coming out shortly. So of course its great to be great, but how do you push past those feeling of doubt and insecurity that all high achievers struggle with in their lives? And did she work to get to this point in her life, or as so many guests have revealed…it’s been a pleasant surprise to her, that her dots have led her to this point? Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Lolly Daskal. Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Lolly Daskal such as: Why we should realise that when things are hard, the more focus we put in the easier things will become. It may seem the harder route but will get us to where we want to be quicker. Lolly explains her theory that we all should just go for what feels right in your life, which is where success is waiting. Trust your gut to make the right decisions for you. Why so many people fail to reflect on their own lives due to their busy schedule, until someone reflects it back on them by their own failures and struggles. and lastly…. We discuss how the imposter syndrome can hold us back in our lives, unless we accept that perfection wont ever happen, just get on with it.
