Harness the power of psychology


Harness the power of psychology. In today’s episode Judith Germain speaks to Norman Bacal about slaying the mythical two-headed Perality (Perception and Reality) beast. Norman shares with Judith the collapse of his successful Canadian Law Firm and how he felt and dealt with the feelings of failure and loss.

He wrote three books (the Take Charge series) based from this time. 

They discuss the differences in perceptions and how to use psychology to succeed, and how organisational culture is derived.

In this interesting conversation Norman talks about how to harness your fear and learning how to communicate and serving others are the keys to success in business and in life. He explains why lawyers are often very brittle when dealing with their own personal conflicts.

This podcast was originally recorded in November 22.

Norman Bacal is a rewired lawyer, former law firm leader and one time, one of Canada’s leading film finance attorneys. His TED talk has reached close to half a million viewers.

Maverick leadership is all about thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. It’s about having the courage to take risks and the confidence to lead in a way that is authentic and genuine.

But amplifying your influence as a leader isn’t just about having a strong vision or a big personality. It’s also about having the right leadership capability and being able to execute on your ideas and plans.

The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant. Without the ability to inspire and motivate others, you may struggle to achieve your goals and make a real impact.
