Carolyn Nolan, CFP and CEO, found herself juggling the roles of Visionary and Integrator within her company. She recognized the need for a dedicated Integrator and embarked on a journey that would transform the business.

In a lighthearted reflection, Carolyn shares the serendipitous tale of manifesting Jeana-Rae Kendall, COO and Integrator, and how they connected over their shared passion for reading and growth. 

In this episode, Carolyn and Jeana-Rae relate how their complementary roles have helped them navigate the challenges of growing a business while staying true to their Core Values. 

“Before hiring Jeana-Rae, I managed so many tasks because I had to. Someone had to get it done. But just because you can doesn’t mean you should. And at that point, I became aware of how much it was draining me and my creativity.” — Carolyn Nolan [14:43]

By embracing the Visionary/Integrator dynamic and creating a culture of openness and accountability, Carolyn and Jeana-Rae have found a formula for success in their business endeavors.

“When you focus on the long-term vision, you are clear on where you’re trying to go. And when you genuinely understand other people’s lanes, you start to see how you can create this masterful highway by connecting with the right people.” — Carolyn Nolan [33:30]

When looking into the EOS Toolbox™, what makes Carolyn and Jeana-Rae so successful is asking the right Core Questions. And this guides them through the vision side of the Vision/Traction Organizer®

If you aspire to create a thriving company culture with increased alignment among your team, this episode of Rocket Fuel™ is an absolute must-listen.

About The Rocket Fuel Podcast

Every outstanding entrepreneurial business has a common element that launched it to success. 

It has a Visionary who sees the big picture, envisions the future, and lives for challenge and risk. It also has an Integrator™, who works behind the scenes executing the business plan and doing the backbreaking work of making the Visionary’s dreams a reality. 

On their own, these two types of leaders have potential, but together they form an essential relationship that propels their business to new heights – we call that Rocket Fuel™. 

Join real and raw conversations with the world’s top entrepreneurial duos as they talk about their journey to getting more of what they want from their business. Hosted by Mark C. Winters, Visionary and co-author of Rocket Fuel.
