How to Create Your New Leadership Playlist [The Leader’s Playlist]

Sep 20, 2022

Early childhood experiences can impact how we currently interact with others, particularly in stressful situations. Our stress responses become the water we swim in or the demon we live with.


The reality is, your wounds and habits, if not addressed, will become exposed while you try to run the marathon of scaling an organization. But when you do the work of healing yourself, the ripple effect in your company or your team can be transformational.


Today, in our seven-episode series on The Leader’s Playlist, I am excited to have Shep Hyken CSP, CPAE is the CAO (Chief Amazement Officer) of Shepard Presentations, join me as a guest. In this interview, we discuss how our childhood wounds show up in our leadership and the steps we can take to heal ourselves and improve our leadership.


Regardless of how major or minor your wounds and experiences from childhood were, we’ve all gone through something that helped shape us into who we are today. Those experiences shaped the neural pathways in your brain, that are the reason you react the way you do today.


Music can help redefine those pathways and help shift your emotional response to external events, enabling you to react in healthier, more thoughtful ways.
