The Bill Perry Show

The holiday season is my favorite time of year. I grew up in a great family situation where holidays were marked with extended family time together with good food and great family engagements. However, there is a lot of pressure attached to the holidays. This year, I would encourage you to take a step back and relieve some of that stress during this busy season.

It’s my pleasure to have my friend, Mike Kim, on the show this week. Mike is a marketing strategist, and his philosophy is, “Marketing isn’t about closing a sale. It’s about opening a relationship.” As we move through this discussion, you will hear that if you don’t love yourself, you’re not going to manage any other relationship around you.

More Episodes

We’re continuing our series on developing leadership skills, specifically focusing on taking care of yourself as a leader first. Why is this important? Because healthy teams can contribute significantly to your ROI and they require healthy leaders.

In this week’s episode, we unpack leadership self-care skill #2: becoming chemically dependent!

Healthy chemical dependencies for leaders have nothing to do with caffeine, wine and alcohol—the great elixirs of truth—or mind-altering substances that eventually destroy the very faculties you desperately need to stay on top of your game.

I’m referring to the biochemical influences that influence self-regard and healthy interactions with your team.

I’m talking endorphins, dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and melatonin, or collectively, EDSOM. These five naturally occurring chemicals set us up for success in creating highly engaged workplaces, families, and communities because they reinforce all the feel-good elements of safe relationships, achieving goals, and being a valuable team member. When these chemicals are in healthy balance, you are an amazing person to live and work with. When they are out of balance, it’s a different story.

Understanding how these neurotransmitters and biochemicals can affect your interactions will make you more aware of the influence you’re having on your team and will propel you to greater levels of presence in your work and your personal life.

Listen in for simple strategies you can implement today that will encourage healthy chemical dependencies for you and your team and strengthen the bonds of your organization.

As always, my hope is to encourage you in the pursuit of a better you, better team, better business, better life!
