Ep#12| Being a Human Dad and Manager
Gudjon Svavarsson is a leadership & management trainer, an expert in human management and an awesome dad! Just ask his kids - he got them to travel around the world with their parents for almost a year!
In this episode Gudjon emphasized the importance of self care. In order to be able to lead other people, a leader needs to be able to lead as an example. Taking care of her/himself before others so she can walk the talk and be a role model in her/his organization or even at home.
But that is easier said than done right?
Here's some take away from Gudjon
- Change starts within you. Believe in yourself, don't be afraid to change for what you know is the better
- Importance of disconnecting yourself from work and how to handle stress
- Create a structure that fits you to have space for your different roles
- Learn something everyday
