We all have a playlist that is running in the background of our lives that acts as a ceiling on our effectiveness. The impact of your current playlist may show up in insidious ways. As a leader, you may be feeling you can’t retain or engage your people. You may feel burned out, or your team may be overwhelmed by the pace of change. You may feel that you can’t delegate or trust your team to deliver. 

The good news, according to Susan Drumm, our guest in Episode 116 of The Mindset Game® podcast and author of The Leader’s Playlist, is that you can leverage the power of music and neuroscience to transform your leadership and your life. Susan discusses the following:

  • The power of music to help make change stick, by priming the neurological landscape to form new neural pathways in a faster, more efficient way. 
  • A process for uncovering a leader’s internal playlist, which directly reduces their leadership effectiveness and personal happiness. 
  • The impact of creating a new playlist to make better decisions by expanding your perception on what is really occurring in the moment vs. filtering data based on old neural pathways. 

Susan Drumm has personally coached billionaire CEOs, high-profile political figures, prominent Fortune 100 executive teams as well as incredible entrepreneurs that set out to disrupt the marketplace. She is CEO and Chief Empowerment Officer of her own firm, Meritage Leadership. She is also the host of the podcast and YouTube channel The Enlightened Executive, where she interviews founders and CEOs on the most cutting-edge programs and techniques in personal and leadership effectiveness.
