Lessons on Leadership – with Brian Covey

Nick is in conversation with Brian Covey, Wealth Advisor and host of the highly successful ‘The Brian Covey Show’ podcast discussing the ways to grow and scale businesses and achieve your goals.

Brian shares great content about why empowering others and collaboration is the ultimate key to achieving sustainable and successful growth that has value and culture at its heart.

The more you connect with people the more you grow and it’s vital to remember you are always potentially only one conversation or connection away from changing your life.


  • Start with the end in mind and understand what you want the business to be and look like in 5-10 years
  • Identify other leaders on your team because at some point during scaling you will need to empower others
  • Get clear on what you want to build and understand in detail what you are both good and not so good at
  • You can have wonderful collaborations with people who are not in your office
  • Attractive leadership is about letting people know how you are working and if you don’t go out across social media and ask  proactively it’s not going to happen
  • In the early stages, it’s about creativity and everyone having a voice that’s heard that fuels growth
  • Leaders empower others and recognise that helping others to think critically is about supporting them to get out of their comfort zone and creating a collaborative environment
  • Being intentional about your growth is everything
  • Values and culture underpin everything and there are values that should be discussed early on and shared clearly, honestly and often
  • When you are intentional about growth you seek new learning every day
  • If you are a high achiever you are going to do the things that others aren’t prepared to do
  • The more you connect with people the more you grow


‘Without trust, integrity and character at some point, things will crash and burn’

‘You are always one conversation, one connection away from changing your life’

‘The more people have their voice heard and input felt the more ownership they feel’

Brian Covey


My name is Nick Bradley. I’m an entrepreneur, author, speaker and investor. My background is in growing and scaling VC and Private Equity backed businesses.

Having successfully built, bought and sold a number of companies, and removed myself from day-to-day operations, my focus now is on helping entrepreneurs get to where they want to be, in business and in life. As well as investing in growth businesses and backing turnarounds – with the ultimate aim of creating value from significant capital events.

I’m passionate about personal and professional development – showing up and being the best version of myself … every day.

My bigger vision is to help bring entrepreneurial skills, experience and mindset to people in developing nations – so they can follow their dreams, live life more on their terms – utilising entrepreneurship as a global force for good.
