Aug 14, 2017

This week sees me having a chat with Digby Scott over a cup of tea and piece of cake. Among other things Digby is a leadership development thinker and practitioner. He specialises in accelerating the next generation of restless go-getters, which he’ll tell us about in the chat. Digby is all about finding your edge, the point where capability meets uncertainty in all aspects of life.

Some of the topics we cover today include;

+ Being scared of the Ocean and the process of getting over that to the point the Ocean is now his mistress

+ The distinction between being pulled towards something rather than pushed

+ Doing something every day that terrifies you and excites you

+ Avoiding the flatline of experience and the value of peaks and troughs

+ The importance of consistently showing up

+ The Ocean as a metaphor for life

+ The importance of having people to nudge you along in the right direction

+ Finding your edge and staying true to it

+ How he identifies if he is going too far, or not far enough

+ Training your courage muscles

+ The fear about putting yourself out there

+ Shifting the bell curve to the right

+ Cultivating, curiosity, courage, connectedness and conviction

+ And of course how to get uncomfortable

This is another conversation with an awesome guest so make sure to share out Digby’s knowledge. Sorry for knocking over the microphone part way through.
