Chelsea Gloeckner, one of my favorite people in the world, recently joined me for a conversation you will find in the video below.

I loved this because it touches themes to which I'm devoted:

  1. Third Turn, Maestro-level leadership
  2. Loving leaders who love leaders
  3. Building a practice that is available to help others, differentiating it, and making it unique.

The more one succeeds, the more opportunities can grow. And when they grow, there is this happy problem of focusing further and making additional distinction. If we can't say no to things we once said yes to, we stop growing, and the yes we want to grow toward becomes impeded. This is true for a person in the helping professions who wants to build a practice. And, it is true for Maestro-level leader figuring out future value for their enterprise, while also figuring out the contribution they want to make as they move more deeply into succession and legacy.

Chelsea's heart for leading well ties to her desire for busy families to live well in all dimensions of life, including that crowded table around which stable family life revolves. Even more, her husband, Matthew Powell (another of my favorite people in the world), was recently named as CEO of Century Fence and is the fourth generation of his family to run this enduring enterprise. She is witness to Maestro-level leadership done well, and together with her husband, they intend to serve long and strong for all our grandchildren's grandchildren.

We will soon release this interview as a podcast episode for the Third Turn Podcast. We invite your subscription and your sharing with others.
