Thank you for listening to The Champion Forum Podcast with Jeff Hancher! In today’s episode, Jeff shares a message from his heart about the key to maintaining your enthusiasm and creativity as a leader. As many leaders start to become experienced in their position, their initial feelings of happiness and excitement fade. The things that energized them start to feel frustrating. They start to rely on their routines instead of looking for ways to innovate. What’s the solution? How can you reignite your passion for your work? You change your mindset and start to act like a new hire.
New hires are the ones who are excited, willing to take on new challenges, and ask questions. Your perspective will change when you stop relying on what you’ve learned and instead encourage yourself to be curious, teachable, and willing to do what it takes to move the company forward.
If you’re struggling with burnout or a lack of passion, take a moment to evaluate your mindset and challenge your current perspectives.
When was the last time you challenged a system or collected feedback on the way you do things?
How do you feel when you think about the expectations your bosses are putting on you?
How would your workday look different if you approached it as though today was your first day?
What would it mean to you to walk into work passionately and excited every day?
Think about a recent hire who impressed you. What did they do that stood out? How can you bring that same attitude into your work today?
