Anese Cavanaugh-Contagious Culture: Show Up, Set the Tone, and Intentionally Create an Organization that Thrives

This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Anese Cavanaugh. The original live interview was 1/8/16.

CONTAGIOUS CULTURE is much more than a leadership guide. It’s a complete cultural mind-shift that embraces infectious energy and enthusiasm at all levels and functions of an organization in order to elevate the capabilities of all leaders and all employees to spot new opportunities and to see their day-to-day work in new ways.

Calling her work “powerful and transformational,” clients say Cavanaugh “builds creative leaders,” “gets people having honest conversations,” and “unlocks potential.”

We’ve hit an interesting time in history where we have greater ability than ever before to do more, be more, strive harder, and push further. But with this ability to do more comes a downside: burnout is high, truly inspiring leaders and invested team players are rare, and the pace of fast business and hard demands has become unsustainable. In order for us to innovate to the next level of business, a new kind of leadership is required. One that is intentional in fostering truly engaged, present, and focused leaders and energized, proactive, and impactful workplaces.

Award-winning leadership advisor and strategist Anese Cavanaugh argues this next era of leadership begins with an inside-out approach that can make the difference between being the leader people want to follow, versus have to follow, the difference between surviving and thriving, and the difference between rejuvenated and burned out.

Your ability to grow others, hold space, and truly optimize impact is highly dependent on your presence, your own growth, and your relationship with yourself,” writes Cavanaugh. “So in order to lead others, you must lead yourself first.”
