224: Todd Cherches—Want To Lead Better? You Must Visualize The New, Not Fear It

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jul 20, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to “see” where you want your team to go

At SAMC, we often work with people who need or want to change. That’s our job as corporate anthropologists. And what we have learned over the years is that people hate to change unless they can literally see what it is they have to move toward. The human brain is designed to keep us in today’s habits and not let us wander too far astray. But if you can see something new, you can begin to visualize how you can adapt it for yourself. In fact, without visualizing or experiencing the new, you don’t know what it is. You flee it or fear it. You are never sure what “it” is. In this podcast, I bring to you Todd Cherches who has just published a new book about Visual Leadership. It's said, if you can see it you can be it. Listen in as Todd shows us why this is true.

Career coaching is Mike’s passion and calling, and he loves helping clients make their best next career move. Are you facing some big changes in your work, your life?

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.
