Episode 292 Getting Unstuck with Cynthia Restivo

On this episode of The Lead Up Podcast, Mike is joined by guest Cynthia Restivo. Cynthia is talking about the book she has just written, Stuck In The Wrong Story, that will help you as a leader during these critical times that we have been and are currently facing.

Cynthia shares her motivation for writing the book as an invitation from God to share her knowledge and experience over the years from working with other amazing leaders and coaches to helping, even more, write stories of their own.

They discuss how sometimes our own story can keep us stuck and prevent us from being the best version of ourselves. Cynthia says what we believe about the situations and circumstances in our lives becomes a lid and the narrative of our lives and our belief system is built to support that story. They also discuss how you can challenge that and break free of being stuck in your own story.

Mike touches on the importance of self-awareness and being able to step back from situations and analyze them to see what you can learn and grow from, not only as a leader or coach but also as a person.

Mike and Cynthia discuss the workplace environment and how when it is unhealthy it can be detrimental to the success of the business. Mike shares a recent experience he had with a coaching client about how we have to quit blaming the people that we promote into leadership roles and expecting them to be successful if we’re not helping them to be successful. He explains how this can look different for everyone, some may need to work on themselves to be a healthier mentor and others may need to challenge their behaviors and beliefs because ultimately leadership is about people.
