The Talent Magnet Leadership Podcast


Episode #186: I Quit!

One of the hardest things to do as a leader is to say no. On this episode of the Talent Magnet Leadership Podcast, Mike is reflecting on his journey with the podcast, what he has learned, and what's next for the Talent Magnet Institute® team. He also talks about the importance of taking pauses, and the impact the podcast has had on its listeners, clients, and its team.

  • Growth-minded leaders are willing to pause and assess, and then go after what’s most important. These leaders focus on the things that most align to their values, and lead them closer to where they want to go. In order to do this, leaders also have to learn how to say no. [00:54]
  • Mike gives a brief recap of all past episodes, and the impact they have had on listeners. The episodes and conversations have helped people connect and let them know that they are not alone in their leadership journey. [2:11]
  • Saying ‘I quit’ does not have to be negative. Quitting can open doors of opportunity that you would not have had otherwise. [6:27]
  • Mike talks about the various leadership courses that are available on the Talent Magnet Institute website. [8:23]
  • The world is changing and that is inevitable and uncontrollable. However, leaders can control how they invest and develop themselves to adapt to these changes and successfully harness the opportunities that come their way. [9:27]
  • “We're going to put 100% of our focus on our community and direct our time and effort on serving alongside those in our community and those clients and members who rely on us,” Mike begins. “The last couple of years have taught us that we all need support, we need guidance, and we need to be proactive in the trenches,” he adds. [10:32]
  • In his closing remarks, Mike thanks everyone who has been a part of the podcast from the beginning, and shares where listeners can go to access the free leadership courses. [13:28]
