#24 Susan Robertson on Getting Over Mind Created Fear

For this episode, I’m speaking with Susan Robertson, founder and managing partner of Linceis Conscious Business. She is also the author of two books: REAL Leadership: Waken to Wisdom and her upcoming book, REAL Culture: The Catalyst for Conscious Business.

Su and I have a long history together that covers a lot of different domains. Before Linceis Conscious Business, she was a founder along with her husband Barry of Stop at Nothing, who ran one of the deepest, most effective leadership programs I’ve ever seen or experienced. Well over 50% of the people who attended that program had positive changes to their lives afterwards, including me. After attending many of the Stop at Nothing programs, I eventually taught the program for about 10 years.

With Linceis Conscious Business, she is taking her expertise in human development to a whole new level. When she works with teams, she helps them bring a whole new level of psychological safety and trust to bear – which then brings a new level of effectiveness to the team and to the whole culture.

We covered so much in this conversation – starting with fear. You will hear the story of when I was sure Su was sending me out to be attacked by the Texas Chainsaw guy when the biggest risk was really mosquitoes. That would be mind created fear – and Su dives deep into what we can do to keep those fears from robbing our joy.

She also shares some deep coaching wisdom with several stories with clients – names changed to protect the innocent of course.

Here’s Su’s bio:
