#068: Looking back on “You Get What You Settle For!” with Heather Anstey-Myers

Insights: Leading a more fulfilling life.

What does it mean to settle? And how do we navigate our way out of stuckness in order to live and lead a life with more impact and greater fulfilment?

In last week’s interview (#067) I talked to Chief Executive of Manufacturing Wales, and Business News Wales, Heather Anstey-Myers. During our conversation she shared her personal story of navigating a challenging childhood, and how a throwaway phrase from Thelma & Louise significantly impacted the beliefs and values that were to drive the next 30 years as her leadership career unfolded.

Looking back on our conversation, I begin by considering what it really means to compromise living our best lives, by settling for less than we deserve. I then look at the importance of values-based leadership if we are to find fulfilment in our mission.

If you’re looking to create more personal impact and experience a deeper level of fulfilment in your mission, this week’s Insights episode is for you.
