SUMMARY:

What does it mean to be a leader? Does it mean having a Type A personality? Voraciously digesting every book and conference about leadership? What if there are other ways to lead? In this fascinating conversation with Jason Jaggard, Bianca Juárez Olthoff unpacks the relationship between creativity and leadership, and how creatives can more easily embrace their own influence. Bianca also reveals how to transition well to a new opportunity, and how to establish and curate great teams.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

FIND YOUR WHY. Your capacity to create expands when you get connected to the thing that makes you tear up or helps you connect with God.

HOW YOU END IS HOW YOU BEGIN. When you are processing leaving, take a moment to consider the burdens that your current leader may be carrying and commit to leaving well.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A “QUINTESSENTIAL LEADER.” It’s not a matter of conforming to someone else’s image of leadership; show up with who you are. Most leaders are reluctant leaders.

LEADERSHIP DOES NOT HAVE TO BE RESTRICTIVE. You can be a “leader by proxy”: creating first and “leading” second.

SOMETIMES WE JUST NEED TO KNOW HOW OTHERS SEE US. Many creatives are vulnerable, and it can be difficult to identify and own the influence they have.

STRUCTURE AND DEADLINES ARE HELPFUL TO LEVERAGE LEADERSHIP (EVEN FOR CREATIVES). Treat creating beauty like your job.

“TEAM” WELL. Look for people who are different from you and focus on coming together to create something beautiful.

DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF ASKING. Many people just want to be invited into something.

YOUR VIBE ATTRACTS YOUR TRIBE. Don’t worry about the “total package.” Find people you can develop and train them.

GENEROSITY IS MUCH MORE THAN JUST FINANCES. It is also time, and talk, and “soul connection.”
