Episode #086: Leading with Intention with Mindy Hall, PhD

Every Moment is a Choice

Mindy HallI am delighted to welcome today’s guest. Mindy Hall, PhD, has over 25 years of successful results and experience working with leaders in Fortune 50 companies.

In her new book, Leading with Intention: Every Moment is a Choice, Mindy says that leadership begins with self-awareness. You have the power, she says, to choose the impact you want to have.

Every interaction is an opportunity. Every action has an impact. Every moment is a choice.

Whether you’re presenting to an entire organization or talking one-on-one with a colleague – every interaction is a chance to influence and inspire others to achieve extraordinary results.

Your ability to do that, Mindy says, depends on two factors: 1) How aware you are of your impact, and 2) The care and discipline with which you choose your actions, day-by-day, moment-by-moment.
