EP 73: Creating Headspace: Tips for Leaders

Ep 73

If you’re a leader who is constantly firefighting and feels like you’re not as effective or influential as you’d like to be, today’s episode is for you. Learn how to go from a reactive to a proactive leader by clearing more headspace so you can be a more conscious leader, able to see the big picture in your business or career. 

Executive and Leadership coach Akua Nyame-Mensah gives you insight into her SEE Better Method, the key to having more headspace and the capacity to make more strategic, rather than tactical, decisions. 

This episode will be especially helpful if you are a high-achiever in business, a founder, or a proactive leader in the corporate or service provider space who feels like you’ve hit a plateau and aren’t as effective as you’d like.

Highlights in this episode: 

  • The subconscious mind makes up more than 90% of our brain power and includes things like bodily functions and making memories. 
  • Why it’s important to create headspace to be a more conscious and strategic leader. 
  • Self-awareness is the first step in Akua’s 3-step leadership process, called the “SEE Better Method.” 
  • Cultivating our self-awareness and making more headspace is a cyclical process. As leaders, you always need to be open to reflection.
  • Akua talks about the importance of building a routine around self-reflection and actively scheduling the time. 
  • Find out how to hold yourself accountable when it comes to reflection and being more conscious.
  • To move forward and grow, you may find yourself needing to first slow down a bit, and that’s okay!
