Exploring Impactful Leadership

TO BECOME AN IMPACTFUL LEADER YOU NEED TO GO THROUGH A PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION RATHER THAN JUST LEARNING FROM BOOKS

Is this Micro Episode of we explore Impactful Leadership

Timestamps:

☞ 01:18 You cannot expect to positively impact the people around you lead unless you have a willingness to go on a transformational journey first.

☞ 02:59 Leadership development is more about going out there, testing what works, experimenting and being creative.

☞ 03:38 Most of the things that distract from us being leaders stem from fear.

☞ 05:17 It’s only through continuous exploration and curiosity that you are going to become an impactful leader.

☞ 05:52 Any transformation you go through will be uncomfortable at some point, similar to going to the gym and getting yourself fit, but you get stronger.

☞  06:20 You can only improve by being reflective, having a curious mindset and acting on feedback.

07:14 To create a psychologically safe space for people to do their best work, you need to be comfortable in your own skin.

08:07 If you hide away from decisions, if you don’t trust people, they will not trust you back, and may even copy your toxic behaviour.

09:27 Don’t be afraid to get stuff wrong or sometimes upset people because it will happen, but as long as you show up authentically and have a willingness to admit when you got it wrong, people will be much more forgiving than you think.

Although I never planned it this way, I had two parallel careers before co-founding my own company. I performed as an electronic musician at numerous international festivals and clubs, including the Glastonbury and Creamfields festivals. At the same time, I served as a people manager for large-scale organisations in Europe and the Middle East. Balancing such diverse careers helped bring the benefits of creativity into the workplace and gave me valuable problem-solving and leadership experience. My travels through business, music performances, and personal adventures have taken me to 50 countries and five continents. Those experiences allowed me to cultivate meaningful relationships with people from many different cultures and backgrounds. Throughout my career, I learned how to maximise individuals' potential and create the right conditions for creativity and innovation to flourish. By fostering diverse thinking and developing a psychologically safe environment, I am skilled in bringing out the best in others and showing others how to build high-performing teams from their own experience. My leadership approach has always been to trust first, nurture growth through opportunities that arise from failure and uncertainty. Knowing first-hand the value of communication and self-reflection, I seek to guide people to reconnect with their wisdom, creativity, and passion for life. Over the last two decades, I developed hundreds of individuals and high-performing teams for Orange Telecom in the United Kingdom and Zurich International Life in the United Arab Emirates, and Booking.com in Germany. Currently, I work as a creativity consultant, certified executive coach, and mentor.

  1. Excellent job Peter. People thrive in environments of mutual respect and appreciation. Good leaders ensure their people feel they are worth their time and interest. Getting to know employees personally and professionally, praising them for things they do well, offering guidance, not criticism for things they don’t, and helping them to achieve their goals goes a long way in creating trust and loyalty. Trust takes time particularly when you are changing the status quo.
