On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Alan Stein joins me to discuss the qualities of great leadership. Alan Stein, Jr. is a veteran basketball performance coach, corporate speaker, podcast host and social media influencer. Alan delivers high-energy keynote performances to develop genuine leadership, authentic team cohesion and true mental toughness. He inspires his audiences to take immediate action and improve their mindset, habits and productivity.
In this episode, we discuss:
-Alan’s transition from basketball performance coach to corporate speaker
-The 3 steps needed to create change: awareness, understanding, reconditioning
-The role of a “change agent” in overcoming barriers to change
-Important qualities in a great leader: self-awareness, vulnerability, competency, vision
-And so much more!
From Alan’s experience, transitioning into a new career does not have to be done overnight and can be developed over the long term. Alan encourages, “Anything good takes time to build.”
Alan promotes utilizing your current network to its utmost potential to support new ventures. He believes, “Relationships are one of our most important currencies.”
Change can often result in setbacks which is why many people fear it; however, Alan finds that change is necessary for improvement and growth. He believes that sustainable change is, “daily recalibration… It’s definitely not this linear ramp that is always going up to improvement.”
Being a leader means positively impacting the lives of those around you. Most of the qualities of leadership can be learned, cultivated, practiced and improved. Alan stresses, “Leadership is a choice.”
