Dr. Chris Johnson joins me for episode #237 of my Run Your Life podcast. She’s the author of the book The Leadership Pause and is a highly sought after speaker and executive coach to many successful leaders. The experience she has, as a leadership consultant, has provided her deep insight into the real needs and challenges that leaders face on an ongoing basis.
In today's episode, Chris and I unpack some of the key principles from her book the Leadership Pause: Sharpen Your Attention, Deepen Your Presence, and Navigate the Future which was published in July 2022. In her book, Chris takes us on a guided journey into our most truthful future as leaders. Her call to action is for all leaders--new and seasoned professionals alike--to take on the important practice of pausing.
The Leadership Pause shows how to quiet the noise of the daily hustle so we can hear the still-small voice of purposeful curiosity that lives within us, which breeds wisdom in both work and life.
The Leadership Pause teaches us all:
- the gift of mindful awareness that leads to clarity of mind and heart, reduced stress, and increased resilience
- a deeper connection to self
- a clearer vision of the natural leader resting just beneath the surface
Chris' book is for anyone looking to deepen their impact on the lives around them, leave a profound mark on their organizations, and build a legacy of intentional focus, pragmatic ambition, grounded compassion, and empathy-in-action. It was a genuine honor to have her on my podcast and I hope that after hearing our discussion today, you get your hands on a copy of Chris' book The Leadership Pause as it's sure to help you sharpen your skills as a leader. Thanks for listening and please share this episode with anyone who you feel will benefit from tuning in.
