Leading with Passion

Nicola is a coach and neuroscience expert who helps leaders to ‘find their fire’ and lead with passion.  She joins me to talk about why leading with passion is so important.  We discuss: Why passion matters with leaders? What is going to help you be passionate outside of work for those energising energies?

We dive straight into discussions about how we revert to patterns of behaviours and how the brain works to stop us seeing the good things in life and the achievements we have made.

Nicola also shares an exercise she does with her clients to help them recognise the wins and reignite the passion within us.

Could you write 50 reasons why you’re great at what you do?  This is something Emma has her clients do. 

Nicola shares her experience of corporate career and how she grew through the years and wanted more in life and ending up struggling with severe anxiety and depression.  It was her learning in neuroscience that really made a difference to her.
