Manage episode 327207800 series 3159742
In this episode, I'm talking with Paul Glover who is known as the No B.S. Coach. Paul works with business owners and executives, mainly in the distribution and manufacturing sector, and tells them exactly how it is.
Paul used to be an aggressive barrister, focussed on doing whatever he needed to in order to win his case. After falling in with the wrong crowd and being tempted into bending the rules a little too far, he got found out and spent the next 5 and half years in prison.
(I was going to call this episode “From The Bar to Behind Bars” but there's much more to the conversation than just this event)
Having forced himself to take a good hard look at himself, he became a reformed character and realised that his experiences could help others. After all, a lot of leadership is all about managing some very tricky relationships and taking responsibility for your own actions.
At the heart of it all, Paul cares about people – and cares about them enough to tell them the truth.
Amongst many other things we discuss subjects such as:
- coping with situations outside of your control, regardless of the impact upon you;
- how everyone has a voice that is worth listening to; and
- the importance of facing up to reality.
We even have a conversation about what 'truth' actually is.
