Self-Leadership & How to Recognize Life’s Teachable Moments with Captain Sandy Yawn


Powered by RedCircle

This episode is an exciting one! I have Captain Sandy on from the hit show Below Deck Mediterranean. Sandy is not only one of the most renowned yacht captains in the industry, but also a well known mentor and leader who is an inspiration to other female entrepreneurs looking to level up. Sandy and I dig into what leadership actually looks like, exploring her concept of ‘Self-Leadership’ and how you can reach your full potential by becoming self-aware and taking care of yourself first in order to take care of others. 

Show Notes: 

01:27 Sharing Growth Potential           

Sandy opens up with how she got into the maritime industry after some personal struggles and how now, she works as a captain while being filmed for a hit reality show. She talks about how the show has been great to be able to reach people in similar situations to what she used to be in to show that they can turn things around and reach their full potential.  

06:54 Self-Leadership from the Inside Out               

When it comes to self-leadership, Sandy stresses the importance of self-care. Taking care of your physical, mental, and emotional state will help equip you to be a better leader. She also mentions the importance of staying open to growth and learning. Being mindful of others and selflessness also play a big part in being a leader.  

12:22 Personal Growth in Leadership  

Tools, resources, and support for personal growth is huge. No one has all of the answers, so it’s important to seek out ways to keep improving and moving forward. Be aware, open minded, patient, and kind. When you experience moments where you’re not your best self, own up to it and work on improving your actions in the future. Check your motives.
