EP.037 – Facing The Myth Of Self-Importance with Laura Gassner Otting

In this episode of the UV Effect Podcast, I am joined by entrepreneur, author and speaker, Laura Gassner Otting. I had the pleasure of meeting Laura at Inbound 2017 where we both spoke. After hearing her Bold Talk, I knew I had to have her on the show and bring her message to my listeners.  Laura has used her years working at the White House and non-profits to develop an incredible platform for helping people understand where the need is. We discuss the importance of asking the right questions when there is a need, pursuing facts over truths and so much more.  Get ready for an honest and thought-provoking conversation about facing the myth of self-importance with Laura Gassner Otting.

"Action doesn’t equal impact"

Laura Gassner Otting

Questions I asked:

  • Telling us about yourself. Where did you get your start and what made you shift to the direction you are in today?

  • You have a company called “Limitless Possibility”. Tell us about what you do and why you started it.

  • In your Inbound Talk, you spoke about the importance of people asking themselves “How can I help?” Please explain that question.

  • How can someone who wants to help a cause or solve a problem, figure out what’s within them that will allow them to make the most effective impact in service?

  • How can a person properly diagnose a problem before they jump into trying to solve it?

  • Is there anything else you like to share?

In this episode you will learn:

  • We don’t realize what service means.

  • We feel like we can’t serve others unless we are scarifying of ourselves.

  • How can I help vs. What needs to happen.

  • There is a unique place in the world where only we stand.

  • Own your Onliness.

  • Ask what does the solution need not what does my ego need.

  • You have to determine what gives you confidence.

  • When you start with how can I help you are also asking how am I not helping.

  • We end up crafting elegant perfectly executed solutions to problems we have misdiagnose.

  • We have to stop pursuing truths and we have to start pursuing facts

  • We all are leaders to somebody.
