Dr. Alex Auerbach, Senior Director of Wellness and Development for the Toronto Raptors and coach to elite athletes from the NBA, NFL, MLB, and the Olympics, as well as Fortune 5 companies, presents a new episode on how to lead yourself. In this episode, Alex reveals a proven framework for leading yourself towards optimal health and achieving your goals. He emphasizes the importance of leading yourself first through self-regulation, planning, preparation, and managing any situation based on tools, context, and feedback. These essential life strategies provide feedback from our environment and body, allowing us to adjust accordingly and evaluate scenarios critically, ultimately improving our decision-making skills.

Episode 2 Quotable Moments:
12:24 “I think [leading ourselves] really boils down to me to self-regulation. And that means is really two things. One, it means being able to kind of manage, direct, or control your thinking, feeling, and physiology, and as a result. And then two is to optimize how much you learn so that you can better execute the skills that you have on a regular basis.”
14:02 “Lead yourself first into the best, highest performer I can possibly be, so that I can give out everything I have to give to the world around me. That to me, is like true servant leadership. It's not, let me pick up everything for you.”
18:04 “Ultimately, like that's what high performance is. It's knowing what skills to use in what context, and so without context sensitivity, you're not gonna know what skills to use. You can't lead yourself first.”
19:19 “To me, that's what leading yourself is, right? It's about knowing like, how do I be the best me that I can be in each moment. And that involves reading the room essentially, right? Knowing yourself and then adjusting to the feedback from both places.”
