Episode 5 – Nancy Pautsch on Showing Up as a Self-Aware, Conscious Leader

In this episode, I chat with Nancy Pautsch, Chief Evangelist of Stakeholder Value (i.e., president) of Envision IT, about the value of listening when life throws “wake-up calls” at us and that it’s never too late to reset. We talk about her leadership awakening and how necessary it is to do the messy inner work and embrace the ongoing journey of developing ourselves, ground ourselves in the clarity our purpose brings, recognize that perfection is pure fiction and move from stress and fear-based catastrophizing to building our ability to ground ourselves and rise strong when we fall - and recognize we’re enough and have value. There's so much inspiration and wisdom in Nancy’s journey and our conversation. I know you’ll walk away thinking differently about your own leadership journey and nuggets you can hopefully apply to help you be intentional to show up fully and authentically in your life.
