TCFP134: LEADERSHIP IN IMPOSSIBLE SITUATIONS WITH CHAD HYMAS

Thank you for listening to the Champion Forum Podcast with Jeff Hancher! Have you ever gone through a situation that seemed impossible? My guest on this week’s episode knows what it means to have to overcome obstacles. After being crushed and mostly paralyzed by a 2000 ton bale of hay in 2001, Chad Hymas had a choice to make. How was he going to respond? In today’s episode, we talk all about how he chooses to respond and move forward. But we also talk about the influence one man had on his ability to come out of the accident as a better man: his father. You’ll hear story after story about how his father’s influence taught him to be a better leader, father, husband, and businessman. I know that this episode is going to inspire you as much as it inspired me.

3 Quick Takeaways:

  1. If you want to be a good leader, find someone doing something great and recognize them.

  2. Intentionally make deposits in other people.

  3. If you choose to not change in a world that continues to change, life will be painful. Take risks and listen to your gut instinct because when you do, you can go to bed knowing that you have done everything you can.

Reflection Questions

Q: Who in your life demonstrated leadership when it would have been easier to pass blame or avoid a crucial issue? How did their leadership impact you? Have you ever been in a situation where you led someone else through a challenge? How did you respond?

Q: Chad spoke about the value of being a teachable person. What does being teachable mean to you? Have you ever worked with someone who was not teachable? Describe that scenario. What was the outcome? How have you grown to be more teachable recently?

Q: Leaders own the results, even when they aren’t ideal. How do you feel when you have to take ownership for a mistake? Do you think there is a limit to the ownership a leader should take? Why or why not? How would your life look different if you took radical ownership in your family or business?
