Much of what leaders have been taught may be working against them–and they don’t even realize it.

For example, “CEO warriors” work hard and fight tough battles to pursue their goals. They believe you’ve got to work hard to win.

But what if you didn’t really have to work so hard?

Leaders who lead with authenticity lead with more ease and get better results. They go beyond the “thinking mind” to leverage their full capacity.

Leading is not simply about “doing,” it requires understanding who the leader is as human being–how they view themselves and the world around them.

Gayle Lantz speaks with Amy Levin and Amanda Sanders, founders of Authentic CEO. With their breakthrough Growth Catalyst Framework, they maximize founder and team growth potential to activate rapid business growth for companies. Through neuroscience and quantum physics, they are changing the way business is done.

Amanda Sanders –is a 10xentrepreneur with a dynamic journey. Mechanical Engineer by degree, award-winning Enterprise Software Executive by trade, and Human Potential Activator by passion. She has made more than one unicorn company from the inside, and now is on the outside forging a path to help companies activate their core potential to grow and succeed with maximum impact. She’s worked with Apple, Dell, Visa, Wells Fargo, Zynga, Yahoo!, Verizon, AT&T, Southwest, Honda, and many other widely known brands.

Amy Levin- began her career as an open-heart nurse along with a degree in public health policy and a background in health and wellness. She developed a passion for team collaboration and personal development, which provided her the opportunity to help open a multi-specialty surgery center which became of the largest in Indiana and repeatedly ranked #1 in the state.

Their understanding of quantum physics and neuroscience created the foundation from which Amy and Amanda guide leaders and their teams to unlock and live their highest human

potential.

Amy and Amanda are also co-founders of Wai Mohala  Ventures, a VC Fund that is changing the fundamentals of investing. They are also part of the FourthWave Accelerator coaching team for high potential female tech entrepreneurs.

This episode covers:

  • The value of leadership authenticity
  • Neuroscience concepts that apply to human potential
  • The importance of play and seeing through the eyes of a child
  • The danger of “monocropping” your business and what to do instead

Leaders are feeling exhausted, tired or fatigued. And there is a lot of advice on what to do to gain more energy…tips on what to eat or drink, ways to move your body or get more sleep.

While there is much you can do physically to gain more energy, there are also ways to energize yourself through the power of your mind.

Whenever you feel lack of energy, it is an opportunity to do some internal exploration to discover more of what energizes you now–possibly something different compared to what it might have been in the past.

Instead of dwelling on what’s zapping your energy, you’ve got to look more closely at what brings you more energy…at what you want instead of what you don’t want.

Gayle Lantz stresses the importance of generating energy internally as opposed to looking outside for answers. She offers two simple questions to ask yourself when you lose energy:

  1. What would I think or do if I felt more energized?” This question requires using your imagination which can be a powerful force to help generate new ideas and new energy.
  2. “What am I paying attention to?” This question helps you become more deliberate about putting your focus on what energizes you. It’s a decision.

This short episode is designed to help leaders stay more energized so they can be at their best leading their teams and organizations.

Ultimately they can energize others and make a more positive impact.

Stress at work is extremely high. Leaders are under greater pressure to steady the ship in rough waters.

But first they must steady themselves while finding new ways to lead in a changing environment.

The process starts by looking within as opposed to depending on conditions outside yourself to be in your favor.

Leadership reinvention is needed to be most effective in the new paradigm of work. Traditional approaches to leadership are fading.

Today’s leaders have the opportunity to lead differently–being more of who they really are, resisting pressure to show up in ways that may have felt inauthentic in the past.

Employees crave authenticity from their leaders. Being real is in.

In this episode, Gayle Lantz shares perspective to consider for leaders who want to lead most effectively–especially under stress. It starts by understanding who you are and why you lead the way you do.

She encourages listeners to challenge their thinking about themselves, honor their personal values and use stress as a catalyst to become even better as a leader.

Now is the time for leaders to increase their impact by leading in new ways to achieve what they truly care about.

This episode covers:

  • How to understand who you really are as a leader
  • Factors that influence how people think about leadership
  • What employees want from their manager
  • How to know if you are leading authentically
