Now that you’ve set your big hairy audacious goals (see episode 14), how will you set yourself up for success so that you achieve those goals? In this episode of On The Tipping Point, leadership coaches Sue Revell and Sherry Bevan to discover the secrets of success.
Where or how have you felt most alive this week?
Sue’s been to a rescheduled International Women’s Day event and been inspired by the three ‘celebrity’ speakers who very openly shared the personal stories and challenges that lay behind their individual and unique achievements – particularly the topic of navigating ‘difference’ in the world today.
Sherry, as usual, has been out and about continuing her training, being inspired by nature. It’s definitely her space for not only getting creative but also for finding inner peace in her day and week. (01.30 – 7.06)
How have you been challenged?
Crikey – we cover some ground in this episode! We follow on from our last podcast where we talked about setting big hairy audacious goals, and look at how to set ourselves up for success. We briefly revisit some of the key points in goal setting, as an essential component in achieving success, and also look at how we recognise the gap between where we are and where we want to be, and what we can do to move us on! Sherry shares how she has really been examining her goals, since our last conversation, and critically appraising whether or not her proposed actions will truly move her closer to the goal. We also explore the importance of balance in achieving our most amazing life so that it’s not all about work! We conclude by sharing our own personal top tips for being confident in who we are and achieving success in what we do – drawing on our personal, corporate and entrepreneurial experience. (07.07 – 40.45)
** Regrettably, due to Sherry’s recent health news and surgery, we have had to postpone our next event until 2019. Watch this space for other possibilities to work with us during the autumn!
So where are you building momentum right now?
As we keep saying, momentum is critical in getting past the Tipping Point. Sue has completed the Mission Map (and here’s another shout out for Alison Jones who sneaks into almost every episode!) for her Mission Unstoppable programme – bringing together the core skills that change makers and legacy leavers need, to be their best selves in leading their mission. Sherry is continuing work on her Career Confidence Hub and is looking forward to gathering feedback from prospective clients before getting ready for the big launch later this year. (40.46 – 46.14)
How have you been inspired this week?
Sue’s been inspired, at the funeral of a very good friend, by a poem about ‘the dash’ that represents the life lived, in between a person’s year of birth and year of death. An incredibly powerful challenge when we stop to consider the meaning of a simple hyphen when it is used to signify the meaning of our life. Sherry’s been inspired by Vicky Warr, one of her fellow master-minders, who has completely re-recorded every video in her daily online fitness programme, to better meet the needs of her clients – such consistency and resilience! (46.15 – 50.32)
What else or what next?
Sue shares one of the key messages from the women’s event she mentions at the beginning of the pod – to keep on looking forward, focussing on what you have yet to do, not what you may not yet have achieved. Sherry commits to looking after herself more and to keep on doing so! (50.33 – 53.25)
