Ep 114: Introducing Leadership Sand Traps

There are three things at the heart of all transformation: what you know, what you don’t know, and what is impossible.

He shares clear examples of resistance of some leaders when challenged with the term impossible and then discusses reasons why the three domains matter to a leader and what a leader can do about it in order to reach the heart of all transformation.

Mid-Week Live Coaching: Kayla

Mid-Week Live Coaching: Kayla

Despite being clear with your purpose, you will still have a hard time chasing after it if you are falling short in managing your wants.

Ep 105: Pitfalls To Leading Up And How To Lead Through Them

Ep 105: Pitfalls To Leading Up And How To Lead Through Them

Good leadership begets more good leadership, and bad leadership begets more bad leadership. It is so much easy to follow orders from a good boss. But for most of us, we find ourselves in challenging places where both good and bad leadership exists, and we experience polarity. It’s always a positive thing when we magnetize towards a transformational leader and be influenced by them. However, we struggle inside when confronted with a bad boss. In that kind of situation, how do we respond? In this episode of Get Lit, Adam Quiney talks about some leadership pitfalls and gives some collected examples we can relate to our own experiences at work or in life on how to become a good leader in the face of poor leadership.

Ep 104: Leading Up

Ep 104: Leading Up

Although leadership is usually discussed in theory as one of the main elements that drive team building, reality still paints it as part of a rigid hierarchal model. Thus, most people refuse to start leading up since it results in a negative connotation rooted in overpowering the people above them. Adam Quiney aims to break this stigma by discussing how one should act when leaders go against their beliefs or expectations. He discusses three challenging scenarios a lot of people usually experience with leadership, as well as how to address each one where growth and understanding on both sides can bloom. He also explains the right way to lead downwards, underlining one important fact about managing a team: inspiration over control.

Ep 102: Why Selling Expertise Won’t Work

Ep 102: Why Selling Expertise Won’t Work

Most leaders and coaches are selling expertise, and frankly speaking, that doesn’t give their clients the ability to become leaders themselves. What a coach typically does is to give someone a path that they can follow and if they can’t, then they must not have been leadership material in the first place. This is where selling expertise falls short. It doesn’t give someone the ability to discover their own truth – the unique leadership potential that lurks within them. It only teaches leadership to those who look like the leader who’s teaching them. Why does this matter? It’s simply because our job as leaders is to create more leaders, not superficial mirrors of our abilities. Listen to this episode as Adam Quiney tells us what we can do to really be of service to others as leaders and coaches.

Mid-Week Live Coaching: Stacey

Mid-Week Live Coaching: Stacey

Have you experienced playing an unwinnable game? At some point in our lives, we might had to say to ourselves, “I can’t, but I must.” A lot of artistic minds often see themselves in this place during the course of their creative careers. In this Mid-Week Live Coaching session, Adam Quiney brings in a friend of his, creative director and brand strategist, Stacey Rae, to share her experience around this. This vulnerable and emotional moment powerfully demonstrates the brilliant ability of the human mind to find a way forward from these seemingly intractable dilemmas. What unwinnable game might you be playing? How is it manifesting in your life? Listen in and allow these realizations to come to you.

Ep 101: Why Hacking Doesn’t Work (Or Confusing Doing with Being)

Ep 101: Why Hacking Doesn’t Work (Or Confusing Doing with Being)

There is a big chasm between doing things like a leader and really being a leader. No amount of hacking will get you to cross that line, no matter how many leadership books you read or how many podcasts like this you listen to. Make no mistake, doing is important, but without the being underneath it, it will never amount to anything. Even if you imitate every single action taken by your model leader, you will always get stuck in an asymptotic relationship with that critical line unless you are willing to do the one thing that will get you through it. It’s going to be uncomfortable, even painful, but it’s the only way to become that great leader you have always envisioned. Listen in to this eye-opening episode as Adam Quiney bursts the bubble that many entrepreneurs and business are living in and awakens them to the harsh reality of creating that being beneath the doing.

Mid-Week Live Coaching: Danielle

Mid-Week Live Coaching: Danielle

Many of us are stuck from pursuing what our hearts desire because we fear what it will have us let go of. In this episode, Adam Quiney coaches someone who is all too familiar with this story. He sits down with Danielle Rondeau, a lawyer who has been working in her own life on the notion of hearing the call of her soul. They discuss how to continue to take the next step without knowing how it will go, create a practice of listening within and take action, and embody this way sustainably. Oftentimes, what keeps us from hearing the call within and pursuing it are the fears we are trying to manage. Break out of them and take that leap as Adam guides Danielle in this transformative coaching session. 

Ep 100: Working with the Breakdown

Ep 100: Working with the Breakdown

When you become a leader, you also step into the pressures that come with the role. Along that journey, you will have to face moments of breakdown.

Adam Quiney helps you work with breakdowns, guiding you to deal with them and become powerful leaders. He tackles the kinds of breakdowns many leaders face and how you can skillfully navigate them. Join Adam as you learn how to take back the ownership and power from these breakdowns in this episode.

Adam Quiney tells you the answers in this episode. He breaks down the two common ways people avoid being with their humanity and how it affects their leadership and personal relationships.
