Episode 49 - Emotion at Work in Power of Love Leadership

In this longer than usual episode, I interview Sarah Higgins who is a Leadership Coach and Author of her own book The Power of Love Leadership. Here, she developed 7 Strategies for leadership, team, business, and life to not only drive success but to manage and understand one’s own emotions in order to become a better leader (and person really).


We walk through Sarah’s Model in Detail from the different components like Fear to each of the 7 Strategies which are Gratitude, Hope, Learning, Forgiveness, Enthusiasm, Compassion, and Humility. She opens up about how she came to not only use the model with leaders but also with herself, with her daughter, and in all kinds of contexts. The topic of how we are not taught to manage our emotions is discussed at length and Sarah gives some really great examples of how she has learned to manage them within herself, and tips for others to do the same.
