Have you ever considered how your perception forms your reality? If that sparks your interest, then you'll love our episode with Andy Erickson, a seasoned consultant with an impressive track record in the construction and manufacturing sectors. Andy provides valuable insights into the power of perception and how it can significantly influence our personal and professional lives. He touches on the critical role of language and how our reactions shape our experiences.

Imagine navigating through a chaotic work environment, and finding the strength to rise above it all. Andy takes us through his experiences, shedding light on the methods he has used to stay focused and strategic amidst chaos. We delve into the world of biases and how they affect our relationships even before we meet people, and how choosing our reactions can alter the outcome of situations.

Leadership comes with its challenges, including the quest for acceptance and dealing with various prejudices. We discuss the liberating feeling of accepting that not everyone will like us and the importance of getting the right support. The conversation ends with the emphasis on building relationships in business and putting people first. Andy shares his experience in large organizations and how a clear mission can create a more productive work environment. Tune in for an insightful discussion with Andy Erickson.
