305 - Steve Cuss "understanding the types of anxiety leaders carry"

Right-Side Up Leadership Podcast

Once a month we host coaching calls for high capacity leaders in our Right Side Up Collective, a private community of like minded investing in their leadership in a way you wont find anywhere else.  This months coaching call featured leadership and anxiety expert Steve Cuss. Steve unpacked the common types of anxiety leaders often carry, how to identify them in yourself and others, and how to take steps to reducing the anxiety we carry.  This conversation is ripe with application and we wanted to share it with our podcast listeners.  About Steve I cut my teeth on leadership anxiety when I served as a chaplain at a level one trauma hospital. The hospital sent us into every conceivable human experience and we had nothing but our wits and the presence of God to get us through. In that baptism of fire, I learned how to pay attention to what was going on under the surface of my own life, and also the dynamics between family members. I was steeped in family systems theory and then later studied cybernetics in graduate school. My unique experience and training deepened my leadership capacity to mange anxiety and notice it in groups. Since 2005, I have served as Lead Pastor of Discovery Christian Church in Broomfield, Colorado, an innovative and entrepreneurial church that has grown from 150 to more than 1000 in weekly attendance. The church intentionally welcomes spiritual seekers and skeptics and is passionate about partnerships that break the local and global poverty cycle. I have also served at a mega church in Las Vegas, on a ranch for teens struggling with life issues, and as a youth minister in the Appalachian region. I was privileged to grow up in Perth, Western Australia, in an adventurous family of origin. After moving to the United States for theological study, I married Lisa and together we have two sons and a daughter, in whom I take great delight. When I am not working, you can find me laughing with my family, knee-deep in a trout stream, or trying a guitar I cannot afford at a local music store.
