206: Dave McKeown—The Need For Self-Evolved Leadership

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jun 8, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to be the great leader the future needs!

We have been developing a Leadership Academy for a healthcare system and working with their team to develop great leaders. This is particularly important during times of great stress, like this pandemic that is upon us. But it is equally important during the more normal yet still uncertain times that were affecting the world before the COVID-19 mess. The need for effective leadership goes way beyond healthcare. It is a recurring theme virtually everywhere. But what type of leaders are needed for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, with all the changes to our workplace and workers? Add the pandemic to the mix and leadership is facing its own crisis. How can we soften the great transformation and enable leaders of today to refocus for tomorrow? Listen in.

205: Doris Milton—How You Can Adapt, Fast, To Changing Times

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jun 4, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how you can change and find your dream career!

Doris Milton and I do very similar things, albeit in different ways. We love to help people change so they can thrive in changing times. Today's podcast focuses on how Doris does this for healthcare professionals who have begun to burn out at their jobs. We talk about how to help people who are searching for other paths in their lives, paths that better fit their purpose and passions. With the coronavirus now all around the world, I have a hunch that this podcast is going to speak to far too many healthcare professionals. While we hope they all emerge from the pandemic unscathed, we know that the rigors of their profession take its toll on them. Do listen.

204: David Rendall—The Freak Factor: Discovering Uniqueness by Flaunting Weakness

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jun 1, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to embrace your flaws to achieve success

This was an unexpectedly powerful interview. David Rendall has literally turned lemons into lemonade. As he shares with us, growing up he had a hard time fitting into the norms which his teachers and parents expected of him. He moved around too much, talked too much, and found himself always a little on the outside of what others thought was “normal.” Then he had an epiphany. He realized that what he had was a gift for turning the things that others did not want him to do into things they loved watching him do. He took his weaknesses and turned them into strengths. In this podcast, he teaches us how to do the same. Incredible lessons here! Listen in.

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 26, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to reinvent your reality and embrace change

As we work with our clients during this pandemic, we're noticing a recurring theme. They've figured out how to deal with living at home, working at home and being at home. But now they're beginning to be anxious about what's coming next. It's strange, isn't it, that without a clear vision of the future, it's very hard to live today. In this podcast, I talk about these feelings that so many of us are having, and how this crisis is an excellent time for you to innovate, reinvent your reality, and start doing the things you've been trying to do for a long time. Please listen, learn and share.

201: Karen Dietz—Your Story Is Your Secret to Amazing Success

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 21, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear why stories are the secret to your success

As humans, we are all storytellers. That’s what people do. Our brains take the information they receive and create stories to make sense of it. By the time you are in your late 20s, you pretty much have created your own story, and changing that “reality” is very difficult. You only "see" what your brain tells you fits with your own story. And usually, you are the hero in that story. When a friend introduced me to Karen Dietz, a pioneer in business storytelling, I was thrilled at the opportunity to bring her to you. Karen shares with us her wisdom, and also her own story. Listen in, then think about your own story and ask yourself if it needs changing for today's times?

198: Adam Gamwell—How to Redesign Your Life Using Design Thinking

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 11, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear how to reinvent your future in the midst of crisis

At the height (or depth) of the COVID-19 crisis, we thought it might be valuable to have an anthropologist share with you his perspective on how we might imagine the changes that are going to follow this major economic disruption, especially since we too are anthropologists. We had Adam Gamwell on our podcast back in September 2017 which you can listen to here, and it was natural to want him back now. As you listen, you'll hear how anthropologists are very good at stepping back and observing the changes and adaptations people are making to the crisis. You will enjoy this podcast, as insightful as it is timely. Listen and learn!
