Many leaders are so busy with the day-to-day of running their business that they take little time to invest in themselves and their teams. Whitney Johnson has seen that throughout her career and now helps leaders spend more time focusing on personal and team growth.
Whitney is the CEO of Disruption Advisors, an Inc. 5000 2020 fastest-growing private company in America, one of the 50 leading business thinkers in the world as named by Thinkers50, and the host of the popular podcast Disrupt Yourself. In this episode, Whitney talks with Tricia about why leaders don’t invest in their teams and how to get started.
1. Take the right kinds of risks.
Ask yourself, “How am I moving about the world in a way that I’m focused on creating, not competing.” Amateurs compete. Professionals create.
2. Sometimes, we need to take a step back to step forward.
When we disrupt ourselves in this way, whether it’s personally or professionally, people might question what we’re doing. That’s okay. Believe in yourself. Tricia took a step back in her career to go home and take care of her kids, then she came back into a totally different career and grew even more.
3. Stop and slow down.
Too many of us don’t know how to rest and take a break. For some, the pandemic has only made this more-so. Make sure you are taking time in your life to rest, get away from work and the busyness of life. If you want to grow personally, rest has to be a part of the equation.
