TRANSFORMING INFLUENCERS TO BE HIGH PERFORMING LEADERS
On this episode of the active CEO Podcast, Craig Johns speaks with Paul Veric about being a Peaceful Warrior CEO, lessons learnt as a transformational CEO, allowing children to build their own resilience, speaking to students about suicide and love, and the responsibility of protecting communities. We also talk about being Head Boy and Headmaster of New Plymouth Boys High School, why Surf Lifesaving is such an effective platform for developing future leaders, growing up in Taranaki in New Zealand, and what it took to be a New Zealand Kayak and Surf Lifesaving champion.
On this episode of the active CEO Podcast we talk about How Exercise Enhances Leadership Performance, on episode #3 of Breaking The CEO Code. Craig talks about the positive impacts regular exercise has on a CEO or leader’s performance including stress reduction, improving cognitive function, positive emotional development, inspiring creativity, developing discipline, workplace wellbeing, and reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer and mental health illnesses.
Why should a CEO dedicate time in their busy schedule to incorporate exercise into their daily routine? A CEO with low energy poses a big problem for a company, as they create a stress environment each day. Creativeness, decision-making and attention suffer as a consequence. Family relationships and social life will be impaired, as they will take longer to complete tasks and will have less energy, than a fit CEO, to use use after work has finished for the day.
