Innovative Leaders Driving Thriving Organizations with Maureen Metcalf– August 7, 2018

Empowerment: A Significant Key to Engagement and Results

Empowerment is foundational to employee engagement. We have been talking about it for over a decade and yet, many leaders are unclear about how to use it and still maintain accountability and responsibility to drive results. During this interview, Linda and Maureen will talk about empowerment basics then move into the nuances of how to empower people to drive better results rather than abdicating responsibility. This has been a long term question of balance for many leaders. During the discussion, we will explore: 1) How do you define empowerment? 2) Why is empowering others such a key skill in leadership and growing a movement? 3) How does empowerment help us navigate an environment subjected to significant change and disruption? 4) What makes empowering others such a challenge for the leader? Why do leaders fail to empower others? 6) What are the essential skills needed to empower others? 8) What are 3 key tips to empowerment?

The Paradise Within Show – September 25, 2017

Like you, Linda Patten, who was a former Four-star General in The U.S.A Army, is more than just the role of woman, wife, mother, business owner, crafter and more.

In 2008, her world began to crash and burn. In the rush and demands of being a business owner with, at that time 3 divisions of her business, Linda had put her dreams in a really nice box, tied it with a beautiful ribbon and placed it on a shelf in the back of her mental closet, never to be seen again.

Later, Linda and her husband decided to downsize drastically by selling our 3700-square-foot-home of 18 years and moving into a 940-square-foot apartment.

Their offices once again moved to commercial space, and they were together in this healthy environment. This was also the time Linda was introduced to two companies that have had her take a look on that shelf, pull the box down, unwrap it and re-envision those dreams.

Please listen and enjoy!
