Engaged & Intentional
April’s podcasts and blog posts circle around not only the theme engagement and intentionality as Third Turn leaders, but provide an array of resources to help us translate that theme into practical results.
New Maestro-level leader Cohort Starting!
Linda Milanowski-Westdorp, our newest facilitator coming to us after more than three decades of leadership at MillerKnoll, is a gift to anyone who joins the cohort she gathers. The 4-year peer-cohort experience is designed to offer a place of camaraderie, with navigational tools, executive advising, and scheduled calendar time dedicated to the important, and often delicate, work of transitioning from the top leadership position to whatever is next in life - whether via retirement, sale of a company, or, simply time to move on. She would be delighted to hear from you via email at email@example.com.

"Oftentimes people that are achievement driven will be very empathetic of people around them. They just won't show empathy because they want to get the job done. Their growth needs to be in that domain of emotional expression, not necessarily in terms of internal empathy."
- Mark Baker (Episode 68)
"Often, this is another kind of entrepreneurial moment, right? Like, we know what success has looked like. And now we're looking further out to what it might look like further out, and it's a returning to an entrepreneurial moment to say, what does growth and innovation look like now?"
- Kristin Evenson (Episode 69)
Engagement and Intentionality – This consistent theme weaves through:
- Episode 68 – Getting Your Empathy One – Our guest Mark Baker, CEO and Chief Psychologist of MyGrow, not only enriches our understanding of EQ but also offers practical wisdom and strategies for growing our own and that of our teams—all backed by neuroscience.
- Don’t Hit Your Son – As parents, community members, and organizational leaders, Mark calls us to find an engaged and intentional middle ground in the character development of others—between an overbearing approach of the past and present-day “outsourcing”. Especially since both childhood and employment represent the bulk of our learning and life.
- Episode 69 – Third Turn Resources – Mark and Kristin share an array of resources that can support our intentions, whether pursuing organizational opportunities like future value or the growth and development of our own selves and others.
Helpful ConceptsPractical resources for squishy but significant things – Whether your sights are set on seemingly elusive things like future value, leadership development, or emotional intelligence, Getting Your Empathy On and Third Turn Resources provide practical resources that can help us translate otherwise squishy things into things tangible and practical.
Teams with higher EQ have proven to be 20% more productive, and a resource like MyGrow can help increase emotional intelligence with as little as 15 minutes in the “EQ gym” daily.
