Welcome to Episode 110 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast, we talk with Dr. Justin Hiebert, an executive leadership coach who works with small business owners, entrepreneurs and world changers of all types. By helping his clients remain focused and “get the right things done,” he frees up their schedules so they can leave a legacy of influence and impact. In our discussion with Justin, we learn how, as a pastor, he saw capable leaders leaving the church because of burnout. With the help of a coach, Justin was able to identify the characteristics of a healthy leader in any industry. Today, with the economic uncertainty of the continuing COVID pandemic, small businesses are faced with enormous challenges. Justin works with them to move beyond their suffering to determine where they are now, where they want to be and what it will take to get there. It’s a particularly timely discussion for anyone who worries about burnout as they struggle to keep their businesses open and successful and to build their legacies.

So if you want to know:

  • Why burnout occurs and what you can do about it
  • The seven practices of a good leader
  • The importance of recognizing that you have more control than you give yourself credit for
  • How structure and routine can help you create the necessary boundaries between your work and personal life
  • A key tip for hiring the right people


About Dr. Justin Hiebert

Dr. Justin Hiebert got started in coaching because he had a coach when he was completing his doctorate in “Ministry and Missional Leadership.” His coach helped him address the problem he had identified that health and burnout issues had caused good leaders to leave the church where he was a pastor. The result was his work on what it means to create healthy leaders and how raising the level of leadership health can make a real difference in our communities. As a SHRM-CP certified HR professional, Justin works with small business owners and entrepreneurs to help them identify clear and meaningful goals, plan for strategic growth, eliminate “overwhelm” and live a fully abundant life. He’s available at his website, justinhiebert.com, and is also on Twitter and Facebook, jhiebertcoaching
