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.

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.

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.

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.
