Guest: Terri O'Fallon
Few leaders set out to harm others – but it can happen despite our best intentions. The key is to look outward from our decisions to all the ripple effects they generate.
And the best way to look outward is to look inward!
It’s hardly a secret that our emotions affect our cognition. Our guest, Terri O’Fallon, founder of Stages International, reveals in this episode that identifying and naming our emotions helps us become better leaders, and increases our sense of well-being. With host Maureen Metcalf, Terri delves into the concept of 'developmental ethics' to challenge leaders to embrace their emotions, actively seek out potential harm, and practice adaptability for the greater good with generous spirit.
Here's what Terri and Maureen cover:
- How do emotions influence leadership and how can leaders ensure they are doing no harm?
- What are the benefits of recognizing and labeling emotions, both positive and negative?
- How can leaders cultivate generosity of heart when faced with competitive situations?
