Reflection feels like a void, or a nice idea that other people have time for. But not leaders who are working in spaces where social opportunities never end and the resources are already stretched. 

But did you know that reflection can give you access to untapped resources and better decision making in as little as 30 seconds?

That’s what I discussed with Doug Taylor. CEO of The Smith Family on our Leading Generous Teams podcast this week. 

Doug Taylor was appointed CEO of The Smith Family in August 2021. Doug has built a 25-year career in the social sector with national and international experience in leading innovative social impact initiatives in partnership with the not-for-profit, government, philanthropic and corporate sectors. 

In this episode:

  • How Doug Taylor fuels and engages his team, even when delivery such complex work

  • Insights into how a CEO personally and professionally reflects throughout the week

  • How he circuit breaks in constant change
