How to become a leader and commit to change This week’s guest is off the charts motivating and charming, he lights up the room every time he walks in and he loves, cares, and serves at the highest level possible. Billy Boughey is master of all things leadership, and hands down one of the most dynamic speakers I have ever seen. He leads with example and from the soul, and as an enneagram 7, has truly mastered how to bring fun and movement into leadership. Listen to this podcast to hear how you can leverage media to tell stories and connect, increase performance and improve your business culture, and find out exactly what it takes to be a leader and commit to overhauling your company culture—starting with you. Listen now The story behind the glory We start off discussing Billy’s success and how most people look at the glory instead of the story behind it. He shares how the grind and hustle determines your mindset—how you have to decide whether things happen to you or for you. He shares what it was like growing up in his household, how his stepfather was emotionally and physically abusive, how they lived paycheck to paycheck as his mother struggled to support them. Billy speaks about playing professional baseball and how it enabled him to find faith and confidence, and how this led to his transition to leading. He discusses how identifying your strengths and weaknesses and working on self-awareness are part of the process to becoming a better leader, and how it ensures that your weaknesses aren’t your undoing. Starting the movement When it comes to overhauling a culture, he shares how he helps and how you have to be willing to commit to the process and make the decision to change in order to see change happen. He shares the four things he tells every leader, and how doing the work as a leader first will help others follow. Billy discusses how he uses entertainment, songs, and movement throughout his work, and how putting action and movement creates lasting change. Stop withholding and start doing--the beauty happens when you start moving into who you are supposed to be.
