As a leader, do you find that you’re putting out fires instead of taking intentional steps toward the growth of your organization? If so, this is the podcast for you. While there’s no doubt that the post-pandemic business world has placed increasing demands on the business leader’s time and energy, this episode’s guest says that it’s possible to adapt and rise above the chaos. Listen in and learn from Dave McKeown, author of The Self-Evolved Leader, all about how to approach the faster pace, prioritize what matters, and elevate your focus above what doesn’t.


  • Even after we return to the workplace, the world will continue its rigorous pace, so our leaders need to learn to adapt to this “new normal.”
  • When leaders see new information come in, they feel obligated to respond urgently, a demand placed on them from our clients, the industry as a whole, and the leaders above them.
  • Many leaders end up leading through active heroism which, over time, builds learned helplessness in our people.
  • A self-evolved leader desires rigorous debate and discussion to arrive at a solution rather than implementing a top-down approach to problem-solving.
  • Sometimes the greatest leaders have no answers — all they do is ask really good questions and help people come to their own conclusions.


Dave McKeown is the Founder and CEO of Outfield Leadership, the author of The Self-Evolved Leader, and a leadership strategy coach, speaker, and trainer. With experience in helping organizations achieve scalable growth, Dave is passionate about seeing business teams reach not only their leadership but also their company-wide goals.
