Personal Growth Initiative Part 4b

A Journeyman’s education on how to treat people:

1.      Love people

2.      Value the culture of the company

3.      Acknowledge and know the company history

4.      Listen to the storytelling as a powerful way to see values in action

5.      Appreciate how people from different backgrounds and different cultures can come together and form something new….as they center on shared values.

“You must do much more than just experience life and hope that you learn what you need along the way. You must go out of your way to seize growth opportunities as if your future depended on it. Why? Because it does. Growth doesn’t just happen – not for me, not for you, not for anybody. You have to go after it. “

About the Podcast

The Art of Leadership
Experienced leader, Niña Ellison, focuses on those seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest skills a leader will ever learn.
The Art of Leadership with Niña Ellison focuses on the soft skills of leadership, their value and the power of their influence. As a leader, if you are interested in moving from success to significance then balancing both hard and soft skills is essential!

Hard skills are demonstrated through technical expertise that results in clearly measured goals being reached. They are vital to the success of any initiative or program. On the other hand, soft skills emphasize the transformation of people more than the transaction of tasks. They highlight behavioral changes and making a difference in people’s lives.

This podcast is for leaders who are seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest soft skills a leader will ever learn. You can connect with Niña at https://www.healthyleadership.online

About your host

Profile picture for Niña Ellison

Niña Ellison

In 2019, after years of leading teams varying from international disaster relief and healthcare to the US Corporate world, Niña founded Healthy Leadership to focus on her passion for partnering with leaders in their growth and sustainability. Her own journey into soft skill development has convinced her that while her technical skills helped her get her foot in the door, her soft skills moved the influence of her leadership from success to significance.

As a soft skill specialist Niña takes monthly deep dives in her podcast series, The Art of Leadership, to explore the underlying dimensions of soft skills. She knows that soft skill development is not so much about WHAT but HOW a leader leads.

From a 10,000 foot view a leader pursuing soft skills asks, “How do I interact with others; How do I problem solve; How do I manage time and energy?”

From a 1,000-foot view that same leader, as they dig deeper into soft skills, begins asking questions like, “How do I lead myself; How do I listen; or How do I empathize?”

From Ground Zero the leader begins to recognize the underlying dimensions of soft skills as they ask, “How do I build meaningful relationships; How do I sustain hope; How do I demonstrate appropriate love in the workplace; or How do I maintain the right attitude?”

Nina believes that behind every wildly effective and sustainable system and process are leaders and teams who have interwoven soft skills into every phase of their work.
