The Self-Aware Leader, a Roundtable Discussion, Part 8
“Seeing Your Margins”
Everyone says they’re busy. The reality is that we spend our greatest resource, our time, on what matters to us. Those of us who listen to podcasts are the type where we can let margins erode. This is an important topic for all of us. Terry and three prominent leadership coaches talk about the working with margins in leadership, based on his book, The Self-Aware Leader.

THE SELF-AWARE LEADER MASTERMIND COACHING GROUP
Terry made a big announcement here first on 37 the Podcast: He is offering the opportunity for you to have a seat in the next The Self-Aware Leader Mastermind Coaching Group.
Terry will take a group of 6-10 people who want to engage with him in a high-level mastermind coaching group for a four month period. Terry has packed it full of the best leadership material and beneficial exercises that will give you greater self-awareness, confidence, clarity, and spiritual vitality.
- The group will work through the material from The Self-Aware Leader and related sources.
- Each person will personally walk with Terry through six prominent personality and work profiles.
- Each month there will be worksheets that focus on time management, goal-setting, the cycle of executive leadership, and more.
- Each participant will engage in two video conference calls monthly with the group that will provide a rich community of like-minded leaders who will help you process
- Each person will have two private one-on-one coaching phone calls with Terry each month.
- A private Facebook group will support members of the mastermind gorup throughout the entire four-month period.
This mastermind coaching group costs what many coaching experiences cost for a single month. The low cost allows leaders of all types in all situations to easily afford it.
