Unveiling the Layers of Leadership: April Ballestero on the Connection Heroes Podcast
I recently had the incredible opportunity to sit down with Chris Trezise from the Connection Heroes podcast through Knox B2B to discuss one of my greatest passions: leadership. It was an enlightening conversation where we delved deep into the essence of leadership, the journey of self-discovery, and how we can all become better leaders in our personal and professional lives.

Discovering Leadership
In this episode, titled "Unveiling the Layers of Leadership," we explored how leadership is not just about guiding others but first about leading ourselves. I shared the story of how One Light Ahead and One Light Academy came to be, starting with a seminar in 2006 that eventually grew into the coaching and training powerhouse it is today. Our mission has always been to empower individuals with the tools and knowledge to lead themselves effectively before stepping up to lead others.

The Importance of Self-Leadership
One of the key points I discussed with Chris is the critical role of self-leadership. Many people don't see themselves as leaders, and this mindset can hold them back from reaching their full potential. At One Light Academy, we focus on helping individuals understand their thought patterns, develop self-awareness, and cultivate the confidence to lead themselves. This foundation is essential for anyone looking to inspire and guide others.

Personalized Coaching for Every Journey
Every leader's journey is unique, and that's why we offer personalized coaching tailored to individual needs. Utilizing assessments and tools, we help clients uncover their strengths and areas for growth. Whether you're a seasoned professional or just starting your leadership journey, we provide resources like our Everyday Wins program and my book, "Slaying the Onion," to support your development. Our retreats and courses offer immersive experiences where you can learn, apply principles of self-leadership, and continue your growth long after the program ends.

Join the Conversation
I encourage you to listen to the full episode of the Connection Heroes podcast to gain deeper insights into leadership and how you can start your journey today. Chris and I covered a lot of ground, discussing everything from the basics of self-leadership to advanced team-building strategies. It's a conversation full of practical advice and inspiration that you won't want to miss.
