Encore: Why Hard Work Isn’t Enough and What Leaders Need to do Instead

December 18, 2023
Zed Williamson

Working hard is essential for success. But it’s not a long-term solution for your leadership credibility. In fact, you may need to “unlearn” some behaviors and beliefs that got you to where you are today. About a year ago, we spoke with leadership coach and author Jeff Shannon about these very topics. 

In this encore episode, sponsored by Alpha Sophia, we tear down some challenges that every leader faces in identifying blind spots and establishing executive presence, along with discussing what needs to happen to get your team on board with new ideas and innovation.

What we discuss in the episode:

  • Why the best leaders know how to reduce friction and do this regularly
  • The concept of unlearning and why it’s so essential for MedTech leaders and managers
  • Why you should not be treating everyone the same (it’s not what you think)
  • Signs that may suggest that you may lack executive presence and what to do about it
  • How to resist the urge to “fly the plane”and instead coach others, even if they fail in the process
