Consider your potential, the potential of your people, and the potential of your company. If you’re not looking for ways to develop potential all around, chances are you are missing out on major opportunities.


Joanna Bloor is a career futurist, multi-time TED speaker, and author of Tales of Potential: The Cinderella Story You Haven’t Heard. She has joined the podcast to discuss tactics for unlocking potential to become the best version of yourself as a leader or draw out the best in your team.


The nature of the workforce is continually changing, but one badge of honor always seems to stick — being busy. Too many people consider being busy the greatest measure of their productivity, but what if we can transform perceived busy-ness into harnessing greater potential?


In Cinderella’s story, the key to her success wasn’t the appearance of her fairy godmother. Her preparation, consistency, and leadership skills laid the foundation for her success long before she was faced with a pumpkin that turned into a coach or had to make the split-second decision to leave her glass slipper behind.


It becomes infinitely easier to be an effective leader when you begin to view others not as a charity case that needs to be fixed, but as a “princess” with potential that an effective leader can help unlock. Listen in as Joanna highlights different potential leadership styles that harness the strengths that are already there and just need to be brought to light.
