About This Episode

Leaders are always making decisions, and when we’re in tune with awareness we’re better equipped to make those important decisions.


Dave Richards is the CEO and Lead Coach at Elite Performance Associates and a former executive director for John Maxwell’s company. In this episode, he’ll talk with Tricia about self-awareness, relational awareness and situational awareness and how leaders can benefit from more of each.

1. Emotional intelligence will determine the trajectory of your career.

It starts with self awareness and how you receive and communicate information. It’s when you understand how you process things and are clear on where you need to work and grow.

2. Know the difference between a reaction and a response.

Emotional intelligence involves a great deal of self control. Make sure you understand how to control your emotions and create pauses when necessary so you have more of a response than a reaction.

3. Understand the interpersonal dynamics of your relationships.

Know when you might need to take a pause, slow down, before you say something. Or know if you need to be a little more blunt and to the point. This will allow you to better connect with someone else who might have a different process than yours. Through applications like DISC, take the time to know others and know how to approach them.
