IAM1870 – Coach Helps Leaders in Making Sustainable Changes in their Thinking, Behaviors and Actions

Podcast Interview with Payal Nanjiani

Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”:

In this episode of the IAMCEO Podcast, the speaker is Payal Nanjiani, a globally acclaimed leadership expert, executive coach, and author. Lauded by the TIMES Group as the most influential leadership speaker and executive coach, Payal is on a mission to humanize leadership through her distinct concept of ‘Success Within Leadership,' focusing on helping leaders make sustainable changes in their thinking, behaviors, and actions.

With over two decades of experience, she has assisted leaders in achieving massive breakthroughs, propelling them and their organizations to extraordinary levels of success. Her journey began when she started working in corporate America and noticed that about 75%-80% of employees were stuck in mid-level roles despite working exceptionally hard, with only about 15% reaching the top. This prompted her to seek answers and led to the birth of the idea of Success Within Leadership.

Payal offers coaching to clients ready to elevate their current position and willing to make necessary changes. Her unique factor, or ‘Secret Sauce,' lies in her deep passion for serving people and transforming their thinking and behavior.

  • CEO Hack: Payal finds deep connection and value in reading which she believes helps in serving people better.
  • CEO Nugget: She advocates for the well-rounded care of one's physical, emotional, financial, and spiritual well-being. According to her, understanding all the dimensions of life is crucial to playing one's role and winning the game.
  • CEO Defined: To Payal, being a CEO pertains to serving people, catalyzing power from within, and helping individuals transform their lofty goals into realities.

Please take care of yourself physically, emotionally, financially, spiritually. You can only play your role and win the game if you feel stable, nourished in all dimensions of your life, and if not in all, at least in the majority part of your life.

Intro 00:18

Do you want to learn effective ways to build relationships, generate sales, and grow your business from successful entrepreneurs, startups, and CEOs without listening to a long, long, long interview?

If so, you've come to the right place. Gresham Harkness values your time and is ready to share with you precisely the information you're in search of.

This is the IAMCEO podcast.

Gresham Harkless 00:45

Hello. Hello. Hello. This is Gresham from the IAMCEO podcast, and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you've been listening this year, you know that we hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we're repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories, topics, or as I like to call them, business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, and business owners, or what I like to call the CB nation, architects who are looking to level up their organizations.

This month we are focused on leadership management and coaching. When we think of leadership, management and coaching, we often think of doing all of the other things, but often it's a person that's able to build up their team, that's able to cultivate a creative and innovative culture so that people can excel and actually be their own leaders. So that's why this month we're focusing on those three big topics because they make a huge impact on the organizations that we're part of.
