➡️ Comment “CAREER” to join the Crush Your Career Challenge and get access to your free Habit Tracker Spreadsheet!

Most leaders set career goals, but real success is achieved by those who develop habits that they consistently follow, day after day and year after year.

On the flip side, leaders who follow habits inconsistently still wonder why they don’t achieve the same success.

It’s not rocket science.

After my own successful career where the same daily habits saw me achieve the position as CEO of a multi-billion dollar company, I developed the Crush Your Career Challenge.

Delivered in 5 short daily lessons, the challenge offers a framework to help you set your career on the path of effective leadership and real success.

Of course, helping you to develop your own daily habits is a key focus!

5 MILLION DOWNLOADS 🌟🎧🎙️

Our first episode of No Bullsh!t Leadership was produced in August 2018.

This week, we achieved a major milestone - 5 million downloads of the podcast, thanks to you!

To be perfectly honest, Emma and I are pretty ordinary when it comes to celebrating success… and I often cringe at the thinly-veiled, self-congratulatory posts that seem to dominate LinkedIn and some of the other social media platforms.

But I think it’s important to mark this milestone by standing back, and reflecting on what this really means, in the context of our purpose: to improve the quality of leaders, globally!

So, instead of just pumping up our own tyres, in this week's episode of No Bullsh!t Leadership, Em and I have distilled a number of success principles that we learned on our path to 5 million.

We want this behind-the-scenes look to inspire you in your own leadership journey – it’s amazing what you can achieve with a blank sheet of paper and some ridiculously bold aspirations!

What makes you stand out when you’re job hunting?

The harsh reality is… “not much.”

Are you the only ambitious person in the room? Are you the only person who’s working hard?

Say it with me… “No!”

But people DO stand out and DO get ahead.

What’s different about them?

I learned to stand out and I got promoted into more senior leadership roles. Each time I went up, I turned my focus to hiring the next standouts.

How I learned to stand out – and what saw me rise to become CEO of a multi-billion dollar energy company – was to ask high-quality questions.

It’s also what I looked for in the people I hired. If they asked quality questions, it separated them from the pack.

Learn how to ask better questions with my free training, The Art of Asking: Networking, Interviewing and Negotiating with Precision.

How much do you value time with the people who matter most?

Do you constantly promise yourself that you’ll make more time for them?

How’s that working out for you…?

If you’re like I was, you’ll keep trying to fit more into each day, constantly wishing you had ‘more time’..

But this just pushes you into a dangerous cycle of burnout, which ultimately leaves you with even LESS time...

I faced several points in my executive career where I needed to reset my focus on the life demands I was juggling. It’s likely you do too.

My experience taught me that becoming a better leader was the secret sauce to spending less time at work.

Don’t wait to learn the hard way. Learn from me with my free PDF, Breaking the Burnout Cycle - A Leader’s Guide to Regaining Control of Your Workload!

Using the same techniques in this document, I became a more productive leader, improved my health, AND spent more time with the people I love.

Included are instructions on doing a “time audit” – a critical leadership process for knowing what you should do and what you should ditch!

What’s your ‘why’ for getting up every morning? ☀️

For me, the answer has always been clear: my family – their hopes and dreams fueled my ambition to climb the ladder.

But my career success didn’t just happen because I waited for the right opportunity to come around.

The truth is, dream jobs don’t just appear; they come from hard work, dedication and channeling your efforts in the right direction 💪

Have you ever been challenged to rethink a fundamental belief?

That's what happened to me during a mentoring session with a CEO who questioned the 'Friendly, Not Friends' leadership principle.

This conversation made me think deeply about how I articulate my leadership principles. Being a great leader requires judgment, in order to navigate the subtleties of every situation.

It's not so much black and white as it is 1,000 annoying shades of gray!

In this week's podcast episode, I explore some of the nuances of different leadership principles, and how to apply them amidst the complexities of real-world situations!

Leaders worldwide are divided. Where do you stand?

There's no doubt that systemic bias exists in hiring - but sometimes, even with the best intentions, it's really difficult to improve diversity.

Quite often, you’re simply dealing with a shallow pool of talent.

Entrenched beliefs and attitudes at lower levels of an organization act as a barrier to progress - not just for women, but for any minority group that's not the typical appointee.

The homogenous, safe candidate is effectively ‘green lit’ all the way through the process. It's sometimes hard to find the right candidate, who will improve outcomes by offering greater diversity. But it's even harder to change the mindset of the decision-makers who occupy positions of relative power, at all levels of an organization!

This is important for EVERY level of leader...

Because although few of us are going to end up as CEOs of Fortune 100 companies, we can all create our own version of CEO excellence, and I want to tell you how.

Last year, three partners from McKinsey & Company, the world’s premier consulting firm, released a book titled, CEO Excellence.

The interviews with 67 of the world’s top-performing CEOs included household names like Mary Barra from General Motors, Jamie Diamond from JP Morgan Chase, Herbert Hainer from Adidas, Reed Hastings from Netflix, Kaz Hirai from Sony, and Satya Nadella from Microsoft: the who's who list of modern business excellence, right!?

In this week's podcast episode 'Episode #266 What The Best CEOs Do', I distill the findings into some insights about what the best CEOs actually do!

Take these elements and apply them to wherever you are on your leadership journey.

Trust and empathy… accountability and empowerment… self-esteem and job satisfaction…

There are many ingredients to building a team of high performing individuals who deliver results, and love what they do.

And one of the most underrated of these ingredients could be the difference between being a competent leader, and a great leader!

This week’s podcast episode revealed the ingredient which, when added to your repertoire of strong leadership tools and strategies, will turbocharge your team’s performance!

I’ve learnt over my career that there are many ways to end up in the C-suite!

One way is working hard, and waiting for your promotions.

But in larger organizations, this can take MANY years. And at each new layer, you're in competition for the next spot above you with a bunch of other smart, ambitious people from both inside and outside your organization.

Even though I’d never hold up my own career path as something you should try to emulate, there are some interesting learnings to take from it.

Interestingly, some of my best career moves were horizontal shifts—they were my springboard to the CEO office.

Are you an accidental micromanager? 😳

Here are our 4 ways to ensure that you're NOT micromanaging your people:

1️⃣ Instead of giving directions, ask thought-provoking questions. Empower your team to think and act independently.

2️⃣ Interrogate the "what" not the "how." Encourage your team to focus on getting to the destination, focus less on how they get there.

3️⃣ Guide your people to solve problems themselves. Offer support, not solutions, to nurture their growth.

4️⃣ Measure success by outcomes, not just effort. Celebrate achievements and foster a results-driven culture.

For more insights on striking the balance between control and micromanagement, listen to Episode #264 of the No Bullsh!t Leadership podcast on your favourite player, or comment 264 below and we’ll send you the direct listen link 🚀

Everybody hates micromanagers. Even micromanagers hate micromanagers!

So how do you strike the right balance between micromanagement and control?

If you give your people too much autonomy, you risk wasting a lot of effort doing the wrong things… if you exert too much control, you fall into the trap of micromanaging, which introduces inefficiencies and demotivates your people in the process.

I learned throughout my career that balancing autonomy and control isn’t just an esoteric discussion: understanding and executing the principle is a critical leadership imperative that will either enhance or degrade the results you achieve.

In this podcast episode, I look at the fundamental trade-offs between autonomy and control; I share a little about my journey to increasing control, without becoming a micromanager; and I give some really practical tips for striking the right balance with each individual in your team!

When leadership burnout strikes:

👉 You'll feel overwhelmed, cynical and exhausted
👉 You won’t be performing as the effective leader that you know your team deserves

👉 Declining team morale and productivity
👉 A high employee turnover rate
👉 A toxic, micromanaging culture
👉 A loss of passion for your role and career
👉 Mediocre results

Sounds pretty awful, doesn’t it?

Well here’s the good news…

It doesn’t have to be this way!

There are strategies that you can use in order to take control, reduce your workload, and feel like your leadership is actually making a difference to your team.
