Episode 37: Why should you prioritize leading yourself over leading others

We are experiencing some of the most challenging times in the lab field, in our personal lives, and in so many industries, especially healthcare.

Limited staffing, high staff turnover, challenges at home…

All these have been going on for some time now.

How can we keep going without breaking under this pressure?

In this episode Lona Small discussed a unique way that lab leaders and teams can keep themselves, their team, and their loved ones calm, strive and grow without bending under pressure, even when things are chaotic.

Lona discussed the importance of leading yourself first and how to utilize the Core Method to do so.

She discussed how you can dig deep and tap into your Core

·       Core Role

·       Core Vision

·       Core Values

·       Core Self

Lona discussed the importance of building mental strength, leading yourself, being a role model, shine the light to others around you, and create the environment where there is growth instead of breaking under pressure.
