In this episode, Jordan and JJ Flizanes discuss:

  • How people respond to directness and how we should respond in turn.

  • Dynamics of power and leadership - its feminine and masculine aspects.

  • The journey as a podcaster and a coach.

  • Breaking through your upper limit, the law of attraction and the concept of your Zone of Genius

Key Takeaways

  • Your business will challenge you like nothing else, it will ask you to grow in ways you’re not ready for. You need resilience, commitment and passion to thrive.

  • Masculine and feminine energy are both necessary in power and leadership - to be a good leader, you need both a spine and a heart.

  • Being a workplace warrior isn’t about being abrasive for no reason, it’s all about being authentic, direct, and having a “no time wasted” attitude.

  • Find what you could do all day long, every day, not get tired and never need to get paid for it in a perfect world and stick to it.

  • It’s important to cultivate compassion for people whom your brain is telling you don’t deserve it.

“If we let our circumstances dictate how we will show up, we will always be a victim to circumstances."— JJ Flizanes
