225: Graham Boyd—Isn't It Time To See What We Are Ignoring?

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jul 23, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear how to transform yourself, your work, and our global challenges.

In this podcast, Graham Boyd and I talk about his passion for helping people see things in new ways. He asks big questions, like, Why is climate change not changing us and why aren’t we addressing it? Why has the coronavirus immobilized some countries and their leadership, particularly the U.S., when China knew what to do from its earlier experience with SARS1 and could have shown others how to respond quickly and effectively? What is it about us humans that keeps us from seeing ourselves in healthy ways so we can help each other thrive? Listen in!

220: Rick Barton and Kit Lunney—Can We Bring Peace To The World Today?

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jul 10, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear how real peace can be accomplished in the world

I had the pleasure of meeting Ambassador Rick Barton when he was Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He joins us on the podcast today to share with you his perspective on how to bring peace to the world — not a simple subject. Joining him is his very successful wife, Kathryn (Kit) Lunney. Together they share their perspectives on their journeys throughout the world trying to understand conflicts and find ways to bring people together to end them. This is truly one you do not want to miss.

154: Benjamin Mathes—Recovering The Lost Art Of Listening

Posted by Andrea Simon on Sep 30, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Learn what the incredible power of listening can do!

I received a copy of Benjamin Mathes’ book, Short Paragraphs on Listening,” as a gift after a speech I gave recently in Los Angeles. Not knowing much about Ben, I was curious about why an actor was teaching others about how to listen, even asking them to post signs on street corners encouraging strangers to come speak with them. But that is Ben’s magic. In our podcast, we dig deep into Ben’s own life experiences and the need to listen to others if we are going to find ourselves. As you listen to Ben, you too will realize that listening is far more important than most of us ever thought. Perhaps you'll find yourself pausing, listening and enjoying others in totally new ways. That's what happened to me...hopefully to you too. Enjoy, and please share.
