Zoë Routh Leadership Podcast

Feb 13, 2022

A leadership mindset where spirituality meets practicality

As a corporate executive in a cut-throat environment managing big teams and even bigger budgets, Amy Lynn Durham knew something had to change. With tiny adjustments and brave experimentation she took her team on a journey to build connection through emotional and spiritual intelligence. The process built bonds and the business, and was the catalyst for Amy’s Create Magic At Work coaching practice and book. From crystals and journaling to setting the past on fire, Amy’s radically different approach gets to the heart and soul of great team cultures.

Why you should listen: Connection expands leadership perspective

  • Use your leadership strengths to bring lightness to deep work
  • People crave deeper insights and connection: help them get it at work
  • Advanced emotional intelligence begins with reflection

We explore a calm and healing leadership presence

  • Why a connected team frees up leadership headspace
  • Journaling as a team development strategy
  • Let the humanity in and the leadership ego out
