Nervous about asking your boss for more responsibility? Jittery about expressing what might bring more satisfaction in your job? Don’t be. It’s time to be brave at work.
It’s human nature to feel anxiety in work situations. But it’s also liberating to practice bravery.
We all need to find ways to be braver at work, and the valuable insights that Ed shares in this episode will positively impact your leadership and managerial development, as well as improve your overall work environment.
Ed Evarts is the Founder and President at Excellius Leadership Development and comes with more than 12 years of leadership coaching experience. He is also the author of several books, including Drive Your Career, which is what Todd and Ed dive into on this episode! How can you take charge and control your own destiny when you might be working with a boss that’s detached from your success? Ed shares his tips on how you can grow as well as develop your leadership abilities along the way.
In 2008, my guest this week Ed Evarts was unexpectedly laid off from his job as a senior HR director at records management giant Iron Mountain.
In the middle of a recession and with no network outside his former employer, he set about building his own coaching practice Excellius. It’s now thriving and Ed tells us how he made it happen.
Often my pods can get a bit philosophical, but this one is packed with practical advice, whether you’re building your career within a proper job or you’re out there on your own.
So what’s true leadership all about? Is it just bossing people around or is it something deeper? Well if you’re a fan of this show, you already know where my and my guests opinions lie on this matter, and that true leadership is so much more than just delegating tasks to whoever is available. What we haven’t talked about much on The Hot Mic though is about how one becomes a leader. What’s the catalyst? How does it begin?
In this HCI Podcast episode, Dr. Westover talks with Ed Evarts about leadership coaching, “playing the hand you have been dealt,” and the idea that “pausing is powerful.”
