The crucible of self-discipline

The crucible of self- discipline

The missing piece in soft skill development

With the development of soft skills, we are not in a sprint, but rather a marathon.

Four steps to get started in building those new pathways in self discipline:

#1. Get really focused. 

#2. Figure out how you are going to measure small wins. 

#3.  Establish the guidelines you plan to follow. 

#4.  Pause to celebrate your successes.

Self-discipline opens up windows of opportunity whether you are looking at


emotional and intellectual

or spiritual growth and development.

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
