Intentionality: Part I

Personal Growth

Thoughts from Brian Pearson, Executive Coach:

  • Intentionality is based on your core values
  • Being intentional includes understanding the process but also the relationships that go with the process
  • With intentionality you learn to respect the people, the assets, the customers.
  • Intentionality, over time, can be imbedded within a person
  • In this process, there is reciprocity. The one adding value gains value
  • Not everyone sees intentionality this way if instant results are the expectation.
  • Mentoring in leadership is an intentional partnership. It is not designed to be an adversarial relationship

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! These seemingly opposing skills complement rather than compete with each other. 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 Nina at https://www.healthyleadership.online
