The Mindset of a Leader – Part 2

Artists MBA, Professional ProgramIn this second of three classes on the Mindset of a Leader, we continue the discussion about what a leader thinks and believes.

When we think about leaders, usually our focus is on their behavior and how their behavior influences the world around them.  And perhaps we try to emulate that behavior with varying levels of success.

The reason we have varying levels of success is because behaviors come from underlying beliefs about our world and our place within the world.  In order to become authentic leaders in our own lives, we must build a foundation of beliefs that empower leadership behavior.

In this, the second of 3 classes, using Christopher Howard’s 18 Assumptions of Empowered Leadership, we explore:

  • The second set of 6 Assumptions of Empowered Leadership
  • The benefits and challenges of each assumption
  • And how we can apply them in our day-to-day lives

Step 1: Download the handout: Assumptions for Empowered Leadership Read the first assumption.

  1. Answer the question: What does this mean for me?
  2. Is this something you assume – or if it isn’t, what are you assuming instead?
  3. If it is something you assume, how is it showing up in your life?
  4. If it isn’t something you assume – Imagine if it were an assumption of yours – how would you be different?

a) What would you be thinking/feeling differently

b) How would you behave differently?

c) What new choices or options would it create for you?

Do this for all 6 Assumptions I’m covering in this Class.

Debra Recommends Session Singing In Hollywood

Debra Russell recommends, Music Industry, Session Singing, music business I met John West at the TAXI Road Rally a few years back.  He became my client and one of the projects he worked on was creating this e-Book, Session Singing in Hollywood.  I think that he and Elin Carlson have done a fabulous job of creating a clear manual for pursuing Session work as a musician.  Many of my clients make a seriously good living working as a Session player.  While it may not feed your ego in the same way as being the featured artist on stage.  Being a session player will feed YOU, both financially and also by helping you to develop and hone your skills as a professional musician.

Inside this jam-packed e-book, you’ll learn:

  • How to effectively meet the right people
  • How to conduct yourself in the studio so they will want to hire you again
  • How to completely prepare yourself for making it in Hollywood.
  • How to avoid the pitfalls that many singers make in pursuing their careers, and how to save time and money in that process
  • How to make lifetime residual income
  • How to market yourself for the best possible results
  • How to be, and stay, prepared for the highly competitive world of session singing

And while John and Elin speak specifically in terms of singing in Hollywood, I’m confident you will be able to apply this information to being a session musician in any professional setting.

I heartily recommend John and Elin’s How-To eBook Session Singing In Hollywood.
