Leaders with Heart Start with Caring for Themselves
In this episode, Heather speaks with Mario Harding, Associate Chief Operating Officer at Denver Health, about the origins of his leadership style, leading him to success as a humble leader. Mario relays a story when he was not present for his team during a time when they needed him. He sheds light on important qualities of a leader: vulnerability, being present, taking care of yourself first, balance, putting yourself out there for your team, giving yourself grace, and a strong support network. Heather and Mario also discuss how to reconcile personal drive with true care, as well as the sacrifices necessary in leadership— not only to care for others but to care for yourself better as a leader. Delegation can be key to improving yourself, by allowing you to be more present and providing others with opportunities to grow. Key Takeaways: Don’t let your circumstances define what you can do. Take care of yourself and balance priority projects. As a leader, always be present especially during tough times. Be a vulnerable leader and put yourself out there. Being a leader means giving yourself grace. Ask yourself as a leader, “What can I let go of?” Delegation can be seen as giving a gift to someone else. Hear from other leaders; let their stories lift you out of self-doubt. What an insightful episode! Hope you don’t miss this! Seeing Both Sides My leadership journey continues to evolve and grow. I’ve been in the healthcare industry for over 20 plus years now. I have worked at various organizations and hospitals that have way more money. Then there are places like Denver Health, whose mission is to serve the underserved, the uninsured, and the very vulnerable patient population. So along with that comes this humility that I’ve been able to see both sides. As a leader, I continue to learn and to educate myself from others. Building Support Systems I’ve had times where I’ve made mistakes or failures, but I don’t let that override what I’ve accomplished. I try to find some balance in making sure of the things that I do and how I contribute to the organization. It’s also critical to be authentic and at the same time making sure that the things that you’re doing are really valuable to your time as well. If you are striving for perfection, if that’s what you choose to do, just know that you may not get there. But why put that on yourself? I think it’s extremely and absolutely critically important as a leader that when you find yourself in a place where you make a mistake, learn from it, move on and forgive yourself. But like I said, learning point. I think the other thing that comes to mind really is also about surrounding yourself with people who support you. Whether it’s professionally or personally, you’re going to need folks to maybe vent, have honest conversations, or have something that’s creating a challenge for you. It’s absolutely important to help people more to build you up and not tear you down when you need it the most. Again, Support. Surround yourself while there’s enough negativity out. With the pandemic right now, there just is. Personal and Professional I don’t know it all as a leader. You have to be in a position to make sure that you rely on those around you who may have greater experience or knowledge in the subject to help you get to where you need to be. That has helped me in the years as a healthcare lever. I look for opportunities to find leaders who need to be elevated and taken out of their comfort zone a bit. As I work with my direct reports, I really encourage them to do the same—find someone who has a voice but may need to be given the opportunity to use that voice more so than they have in the past. I am very much about supporting my team, lifting them up, and being transparent I want to do more. I want to do better. I’m blessed because having people around me to help support my career certainly has put me in a place that has impacted my leadership role.

Where Can You Go From Here?
When I take my daily walk, I tend to either walk in silence or listen to a podcast. I find that by doing either, I can briefly put aside those things on which I might otherwise be ruminating – or I can gain insight into them. On this particular day, I was listening to Greg McKeown's exceptional "Essentialism" podcast, and his guest literally said something that made me stop and hit the 15-second reverse button. Twice. His guest, Ben Bergeron, trains high-octane athletes for the high-octane sport of "Cross Fit." These are some of the most highly conditioned athletes in the world, but they're also human: they worry. Sometimes a lot. Worrying detracts from good performance, so Bergeron takes the athletes through an extensive mental exercise where they identify all of the things that might take up some mindspace; things that might worry them; things that are an issue that we should be thinking about or anything that could go wrong in training or in competition. They then categorize those thoughts as either in their power to change or influence or outside their power to control. Bergeron then added: 80% of things you’re worrying about are ultimately outside your control. And that's where I stopped and hit the reverse button. Twice. [AN ASIDE: "You mean that some 80% of all that crap that wakes me up at three in the morning and has me tossing and turning is potentially outside of my control?" I asked a squirrel perched upside down on the trunk of a nearby tree. I think it nodded in reply.] Bergeron then goes on to explain that if you're complaining, whining, or making excuses about something, that something is usually outside of your control. So, he advises his clients to focus on what they can control, and in the athlete's world, that's nutrition, conditioning, sleep, recovery, and mindset. The other things? Let them go. The idea of focusing on what you can control leads us to this week's podcast guest, elementary school principal JoAnne Duncan. Let's look at her potential worry situation. COVID-19 just may be a principal's worst nightmare, but as JoAnne reasons, the disease itself is outside her control; what's in her control is how she helps her faculty, kids, and community adjust to it. Reinforcing Bergeron's advice, Ben and Roz Zander, authors of The Art of Possibility, explain the skill JoAnne so aptly demonstrates as "being present with the way things are without resistance." “Without resistance” doesn't mean being resigned to the way things are. Rather it means not dwelling on the negative feelings associated with a given situation. "Letting go of resistance" allows you to turn to the more productive question "What do we want to do from here?" And as you listen to this episode, you'll hear that JoAnne excels at answering that question. If you made it this far, thank you! And if you're intrigued enough to listen to the podcast episode, thank you again! No? Hey, don't worry about it.

Crappy to Happy
Have you ever noticed that good answers and good choices rarely occur when we are stressed out or in crisis mode? You cannot focus. You cannot find clarity of thought. You cannot rationally weigh the pros and cons. It is like trying to hold back the ocean during high tide. You are simply reacting to a situation you cannot change, alter, or win. Our cluttered mind then tells us we have lost or we failed. At this point, our lives are “CRAPPY.” So how do we go from CRAPPY back to HAPPY? My guests today are Kat O'Keefe-Kanavos, one of the primary authors of Crappy to Happy, and Mike Pitocco a contributing author. The book CRAPPY to HAPPY is being released today.

Recovery from Financial ‘Bitchuation’ Using Simple Success Principles
Filomena Day is a best-selling author offering simple strategies and time-tested tips and techniques to show clients better ways to improve their relationships with money and others. She hosts and produces The M Power Hour, a television series empowering viewers to improve their WHOLE life through episodes covering Wealth, Health, Organization, Lifestyle/Love-life, and Entertainment. Her business reflects her “wholeness success” philosophy and is the culmination of a 40+ year career providing personal and professional development programs and financial services as a business and executive coach and consultant, adjunct college professor, group and retreat facilitator, holistic financial planner, energy practitioner, Certified College Planning Advisor, and a CPA. In this interview, Filomena shares how she recovers from her own devastating dilemmas using a simple technique that can immediately change an emotional response to any ‘bitchuation’ as she has coined a bad situation. Her Zio Luigi showed her the technique when she was 12 years old visiting with her family in Italy. It’s a technique that has helped her develop an automatic positive response to various situations that allows her to quickly move out of old spaces (mindsets), into new places, move on and move ahead one positive decision at a time and one day at a time. She now uses it repeatedly to improve all areas of her whole life and has been incorporated into her “wholeness success” philosophy. Filomena operates from a belief that our 'Yes' or 'No' responses to the opportunities provided by the Universe can help us overcome obstacles and create pathways to fulfill dreams and deepest desires. She explains a proprietary process she calls the ‘Yesses & Messes of Opportunities’ which she practices and coaches clients through that uncovers the blessings and messages in each situation, even when saying ‘yes’ results in a misstep or mistake. By ‘connecting the dots’ in this process, the results reveal the bigger picture of one’s potentiality. The practice of the process helps to formulate the spiritual discernment to intuit what and who to say ‘yes’ to! Listen in and discover how the answers to three daily questions become the foundation of beliefs that either serve you or enslave you!

Are You Listening?
Executive coach and author of Are You Listening or Just Waiting to Speak, Jane Adshead-Grant is the guest on today’s show. She shares deep insights about listening with host Kevin Monroe, including why she discourages note-taking during conversations. Don’t Take Notes Kevin often creates some questions to ask podcast guests as a springboard to their conversation. While they are speaking, he jots down notes so that he remembers important points or ideas he wants to revisit. Jane discourages this practice. She says that instead of taking notes, he should trust himself. When you listen deeply, you’re allowing the speaker to continue to think and speak at their very best. You will remember the essential elements of what they said, she assures Kevin. To listen deeply, you must first be at ease with yourself as the listener; you must know that both speaker and listener have equal capacity to think, listen and share; and you must appreciate each other for the qualities that you see in one another. The Gift of Time Kevin asks what listeners can do to be more present in the conversation. Jane advises them to give themselves the gift of this time, free from judgment, distraction, and interruption. Distraction can be both internal and external, she says. An example of internal distraction is when your mind wanders; she advises that you should mentally check yourself when this happens and bring your focus back to the conversation. The most common external distraction is the phone: just put it on silent. When you actively give your attention - paying attention is more passive and reactive, Jane says - you’re giving respect to the other person. You’re saying that in this moment they are more important than anything else. Let Silence Do the Heavy Lifting Jane writes in her book that we should let silence do the heavy lifting. Kevin asks her to unpack that statement. She explains that people need time to process questions or information. Giving them the opportunity to pause while they process their thoughts is a real gift. Humans think in waves and pauses: we have a wave of thinking, and then we naturally pause. If we allow that silence for long enough, the brain itself will soar once more in a new way, Jane says. Don’t Interrupt The brain receives an interruption like an assault, Jane reveals. One of the greatest things we can do is resist the urge to interrupt and allow the person to complete their thoughts, feelings, and ideas. Interrupting prevents the person from flourishing into who they are meant to become. If you absolutely must interrupt, you should do it as gracefully as possible, while the person takes a pause. If you inadvertently interrupt someone, apologize. Listening is a Gift Jane reminds us that listening is a gift that is worth mastering because it shows how much you care. When you listen to someone to generate their best thinking, it frees them to be more, to create more, to feel more courageous. Whereas time is the currency of leadership, listening is the currency of relationship.
