Active CEO Performance Tip

Recover With Purpose – It’s important as a leader that you Recover With Purpose and have a clear state of mind. Sleep deprivation and chronic tiredness results in poor performance and productivity, has negative impacts on your health, disrupts workplaces and leads to higher levels of stress, anxiety and frustration. You can improve your ability to recover with purpose by sleeping 7-9 hours per night; creating a digital sunrise and sunset; sleeping in a quiet, cool, clean and dark bedroom; being exposed to fresh air; having cold showers when you wake up and before you go to sleep; avoid caffeinated drinks after 2pm; free your mind with meditation, mindfulness and breathing techniques; eat well and hydrate regularly; and exercise daily. Recovery wont take care of itself, you have to recover with purpose.


“What you believe doesn’t make you a better person, the way you behave does.” Catherine Molloy on being The Conscious Leader, on the active CEO Podcast.

“If you don’t make that great first connection, it can take up to twelve more positive interactions with that person to create that likeability.” Catherine Molloy explains why the first impression is so important, on the active CEO Podcast.

“On stage you have up to 15 seconds to capture the audience before they are going to go back to their phones.” Making an impact with Catherine Molloy, on the active CEO Podcast.
