In this episode, Jordan and Christine discuss:
Helping teams improve means challenging them to consider new options.
Different ways of challenging strong executives to consider other options
How to support leaders and their teams through change
In the short run, challenging teams can be disturbing to them
Reaching out before things get difficult
Transformations don't always need to happen through drastic changes but by constantly committing to change little by little.
Positive change is often disturbing but you’ll eventually come to a realization that it’s good for you.
We have barriers that we set up to protect ourselves, but we don’t realize that the barrier that keeps us safe might also be limiting us and keeping us from being our very best self.
You don’t have to be in a very tough situation before reaching out to someone. Reach out before things get difficult, it might even be more effective that way.
“I realized that one small change in the body can totally change the results. You don’t need to put a lot of effort to have a big impact. Very small effort is enough. ”— Christine Billy
