#002 | The Challenge of Leading a Team of 100 Volunteers | Tarek KHOLOUSSY, CEO of Nomads Skillshare
Welcome to the first coaching podcast for CEOs. In this episode, I coach Tarek KHOLOUSSY, CEO of Nomads Giving Back & Nomads Skillshare.
As the CEO of Nomads Giving Back (and its new little sister, Nomads Skillshare), Tarek has the opportunity to lead a team of 100+ volunteering digital nomads around the world.
Tarek comes with two main challenges. The first on leadership. The second is on creating a sustainable organization.
The second one is definitely rooted.
What I see is that Tarek doesn't love money unconditionally, even though he has been making progress in that direction for the past few years.
As he mentioned, he moved from keeping his eyes on the money every day at Godman Sachs to the other side of the spectrum today, which is to ''not care about money."
The way for him to make peace within, which will have an impact on his leadership, is to come back to balance (i.e., not being at one side or another of the spectrum) and loving money with all his heart, without attaching any notion of heaven or hell to it.
Also, a way for him to bring more freedom and satisfaction to his life is to come back to simplicity: doing more of what energizes him and erasing the rest.
Nomads Giving Back's mission is to create positive social change around the world through social impact-themed trips, culture & language exchanges, skill-sharing programs, advocacy events, meet-ups, impact workshops, volunteering access to organizations, and more.
It's a social enterprise with the vision to inspire nomads, expats, and travelers to make it easier to give back to the communities they call ''home away from home.''
