Chris Kenny Interviews Me About My Why – Purpose Podcast 046

We turn the tables for this episode and Chris Kenny interviews me about my Why.

I feel most successful when I’m able to have a positive impact on the people I work with and the situations I’m involved with.

How I do that is that I lead with curiosity. I like to get a sense of what the situation is and understand how it came to be as it is. I ask a lot of questions and listen without judgement. I then try to discern what may be holding them back from achieving what they’re committed to. I then either tell them what I see or ask more questions so they can make their own assessments. I then explore what actions they can take to improve the situation.

Ultimately what I do is help entrepreneurs maximize their impact.
