39- Rocking LEADERSHIP with Alain Hunkins, Author and Leadership Coach

View descriptionShare

LEADERSHIP.  What does leadership trigger in you? I know it triggered some things in me... so let's rock this:

1: Let's Rock with Amy: This week was interesting for me, as leadership is not something I have ever focused on. all the segments touch on the qualities that make a leader, and I looked and smaller ways that we can lead and the daily practices that can make us actualize our innate leader. I also talk about the acts of service that Alain talks about, and a reframe of that. Don't forget that my new FREE meditation is out too! Access that and other free stuff HERE!

2: The Interview (12:57): Interview this week is with Alain Hunkins, bestselling author of Cracking the Leadership Code and CEO of Hunkins Leadership Group. Every single thing Alain says in our conversation is so worth listening to! We covered how shifting our mindset around leadership can be crucial; anything we do essentially takes leadership; the real key to leadership; how to find the connection with others when we can’t be one-on-one (so good!); I ask about using the power of leadership for good vs. evil; he tells me what he’s learning right now; the importance of grounding ourselves; the beautiful reframe and power of intentionality; and Alain says, "Leadership is everyone’s business. And if you’re really keen on growing yourself, the number one thing you can do is reach out to other people and ask for some feedback. And find people who are going to tell you the good and the bad and the ugly— you have to ask everyone out there. Leadership— and personal personal and professional development— is much better done when traveling in groups. So find a support team, coaches, some allies, that can help you on the path." He emphasizes being of service as a leader and that we can all find ways to do that. Definitely listen to this interview, very inspiring! And you can also connect with Alain on LinkedIn and download a free chapter of his book HERE.

3: Go Aff Yourself (29:44) with Affirmation Maven Jill Faulkner of Is Michael Scott a leader? Do leaders really eat last? We talk about stepping up in certain situations; familial roles; leading by example wherever you are or in whatever way; being a leader in the context of self-love; subtle leadership qualities like vulnerability; and this week's Affirmation is: I Live and Lead By Example.

4: BYOBBB (44:04) Build Your Own Brand, Biz + Brain with Bijou Finney: Bijou feels that it is hard to be a leader right now in this climate and thinks judgments are running high. What do we do when we don’t know where to look for leaders or know how to find It ourselves? I feel a responsibility to lead; I talk about the compassion required of a leader, and the noise vs looking within; we talk about who leaders we look to are (that’s a little harder than we thought!); I speak about what leading looks like for me in podcasting and life; and we talk the New Moon and Intentions. Don't forget, too, you can still access our free pdf that can help you with your core brand values!
