Transformational Leadership: From Exhausted To Energised


In a world where our businesses and lives are often driven by exhausted minds, it’s crucial to find new ways to rejuvenate and energise ourselves and others.

In this episode, we dive deep into the heart of transformational leadership with an exceptional guest, Amy Elizabeth Fox.

Amy is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Mobius Executive Leadership. With her extensive experience as a senior leadership strategist, she has consulted with senior leadership on human capital, organizational health, and leadership development.

Amy is a leader in vertical development and for the last twenty years has led immersive leadership programs for CEOs and senior executives.  She is also a pioneer in trauma informed coaching and serves on the faculty of the African Leadership Institute’s program at Oxford University.

In our conversation, we discuss Amy’s insights on how to create the space for transformational leadership change, helping organisations move from exhaustion to inspiring heart led leadership.

We explore her journey, her work with major international organisations, and the strategies she employs to foster leadership that becomes revitalised. This includes the realisation by many large organisations who have worked with Amy that spirituality is the gold mine under the boardroom table.

Take a look at some of the key highlights from our conversation:

Self-Care and Vulnerability is Key

– Leaders need to value themselves without the need for constant accomplishments. It’s essential to take literal rest to recharge and refocus.

– Vulnerability is a strength. Recognising personal needs and building supportive tribes are crucial for emotional well-being.

Shifting Organisational Culture

– Traditional business models often neglect health, movement, rest, and emotions. It’s time to create work environments that prioritise these aspects to avoid feelings of emptiness and loneliness.

Leading with Compassion and Purpose

– The modern leader must go beyond profit-centric goals. Embrace characteristics like being a dreamer, lover, warrior, and thinker to make a positive societal impact.

– Building a workplace with shared purpose and care is vital for attracting and retaining talent.

If you’re a leader who’s striving for more but often finds yourself on the brink of burnout, this episode is a must-listen!

Join us as we uncover the antidote for transforming tired busy minds into happier, energised and high performing leaders, teams and employees and why this is an essential solution for a better more harmonious world.
