Episode 52 – Dave McKeown | Author of The Self Evolved Leader
In this episode I chat with Dave McKeown – the founder of Outfield Leadership plus author, speaker, leadership trainer and business advisor.
We discuss his new book – The Self Evolved Leader – and how it was designed to be applicable to anyone, with practical strategies to implement immediately. Dave guides us through his process of writing the book in a very short amount of time, plus some of his key leadership learnings, including the cycle of mediocrity, collective shared goals, and how to implement a change in perception.
Key episode highlights include:
- It’s not necessarily those leaders who are functionally good at their jobs that have the greatest impact
- You’re the only one who is responsible for your own growth and development
- Leaders can often have an addiction to ‘saving the day’ – the heroism – that not only steals their time but ultimately prevents others from learning as well
- Every interaction is a possibility to be a more effective leader.
