“It basically helped me debug this relationship so fast that I went, ‘My goodness, every leader in America, every leader in the world should have access to this process,’” shares Matt Stone, reinvention strategist. Matt got his start as an attorney by working in family law, and he uses what he learned about trust and relationship building to inform his reinvention strategies for CEOs and other visionary leaders. Now, Matt works with Behavioral OS, helping to set a behavioral framework for clients to build stronger interpersonal relationships that translate into successful business endeavors. He joins Mike Horne in conversation to discuss some of his top reinvention strategies for executives and visionaries alike.
According to Matt, to form an authentic interpersonal relationship, a leader needs to be aware of what the other person needs from their interaction. When leaders cultivate a win-win dynamic, they will be able to gain more from each interaction. It’s important for leaders to learn how to determine their constituents values and desires in addition to having a clear understanding of their own underlying values. Matt explains that the reinvention process requires a willingness to change and the ability to practice radical humility because change can be difficult. He also recommends seeking help whenever necessary because it isn’t possible to achieve everything alone all the time. When leaders work out the bugs in their relationships, everything flows smoother and the business has room to flourish.
It’s time to debug your interpersonal relationships and take your business to the next level. Tune into this week’s episode of the Authentic Change Podcast to learn more about reinvention strategies for executives and visionaries, so that you can be the best leader possible.
