How Struggle & Failure Builds a Leader & Grows a Brand
In this unique episode - Rainmaker podcaster Andrew Olsen, CFRE interviews Mark P. Fisher of Inspiring Growth. According to Andrew - Here are 6 key points we hit in this discussion: 1. Mark's personal story of going 100+ miles per hour as a leader until he hit a wall...and it nearly killed him. He talks about how this experience helped him reset his priorities and focus, and create Inspiring Growth, his life's calling. 2. The importance of caring for yourself as a leader in order to allow you to truly serve those you lead. 3. The power of kindness, and how it helps you lead well. 4. The importance of resilient thinking, and how that allows you to pick up the pieces and move on after failure or setbacks. 5. As a leader, why you should strive to believe the best about people, and how that can radically change the culture in your organization. 6. How to use a post mortem or after action review to overcome failure and create learning that will move your organization forward in a healthy way, even when a major project or initiative doesn't turn out the way you'd hoped. ________________ Thinking of buying or selling a house?
