How to Use Your Love for Learning to Take Bigger Risks with Katie Anderson

2 - brand messaging & positioning May 26, 2022

Explore the connection between learning and having a learning mindset that drives exponential success with my guest, Katie Anderson.

Katie is a leadership consultant, entrepreneur, keynote speaker, and best-selling author.

As your virtual mentor – I encourage you to listen to the conversation with Katie from a couple of angles. First, she offers some tips on creating learning organizations and leaders who are learners. Second, if you're a consultant or coach who works with organizations, pay attention to how you can consider these best practices as part of your consulting and coaching.

Katie is a Fullbright Scholar who has lived all around the world and has built her career and business success on her learning superpower. She doesn't talk about learning as a business strategy or as part of her consulting. But, it's what she lives. It oozes out of her. It's the subject of her keynote and her book, which I initially thought would be the focus of our conversation.

But when we talked, it was all about the power of learning, having a learning mindset and lifestyle, and how transformative learning is to organizations and business owners.

In our conversation, Katie shares her unique experience of starting her consulting business, moving to Japan, and forging a deep connection with long-term Toyota executive Isao Yoshino. Isao gave her behind-the-scenes insight into the role of learning and the continuous improvement culture of Toyota.

We go deep into the power of having a learning mindset and how it creates the conditions for excellence, risk-taking, and so much more. We also talked about our shared experiences as internal consultants, leaping into business ownership, and how to stay resilient and focused when scaling to new heights.

In this episode, you'll hear:

  • Why entrepreneurs constantly need to step outside of their comfort zone to start or scale their business and how it creates fears and imposter syndrome
  • Katie's strategy for development professionals who love to learn 
  • How you can use your learning superpower to quell fears quickly when you are taking bigger risks with your business

Learning is Katie's superpower, and I bet it is one of yours as a consultant or coach! It may not be #1 like Katie, but it's in your mix. So listen in!
