“Sometimes it's in the stillness, the spaces in between, where we find our most creative thoughts, our clearest thinking, our ideas, our commitment to what's next."

Take a listen to hear what you might consider implementing in your leadership journey in 2022.
Vasavi Kumar, a coach and licensed therapist, says real leaders show their full selves - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sharing your messy parts can open doors in others they didn’t even know were closed. While that level of vulnerability isn’t for everyone, Vasavi and I talk about how it leads to unexpected and meaningful connections. As you listen you’ll learn why showing up as your authentic self allows you to skip the drama and how sharing what you're struggling with can be a valuable teaching moment.
You have to work on yourself before you can show up for others. Something easier said than done.

Listen to this episode to hear how Brandon was able to create a sense of abundance in his life and what kind of impact you can make on others by doing the same.

Every conversation with Howie Milstein is a mixture of thoughtfulness, wisdom, silliness and laughter. Howie channels his nontraditional background to serve others as a career coach and as the CEO and Provocateur for the Institute to Stop Taking Yourself So Seriously! We talk about the normalcy of being human, how to create more humanized workplaces, and the key culprit getting in the way of having vibrant workplaces and communities - people’s egos taking over and them showing up as a FD. I hope you’ll walk away with some laughs, insights and things to consider so you can show up as a better version of yourself and create vibrant communities around you.
I so enjoyed this conversation with my fellow Table Group Consultant and Practitioner Alliance colleague, Mark Kenny. He is a successful business owner, keynote speaker, new author and a wonderfully authentic dude. We talk about the importance of being able to truly operate as a team - both within and outside of organizations. Mark discusses why this matters now more than ever, what gets in our way, and some key things we can do to start to address the gaps between silos and get out of our own territorial, self-protective ways to collaborate with others, serve a common purpose, and have a greater impact. I think you’ll walk away with some wonderful insights and tangible actions you can take right now to show up as a leader and unleash the power of teams.
We’re wrapping up our summer mini book club. In this episode I’m talking about key insights from a new book by Jim Detert - Choosing Courage.

I reflect on some key aspects of the book that I see relevant for so many, connect the dots to other key aspects of leveraging courage to be a daring leader, and some things you can think about to start showing up more courageously in your own life. I hope you gain some useful insights from this episode and would love to hear your thoughts as you read the book yourself.
We’re continuing with our summer format plot twist with a mini book club. In this episode I’m talking about key insights from the latest book from Adam Grant - Think Again. As someone who thrives off challenging limited thinking in myself and others, I was geeking out about this book. Adam examines the critical art of rethinking - learning to question your opinions and open other people’s minds. He describes how critical it is that we build our capability to get out of our comfort zones to rethink and unlearn and how it can position us for excellence and work and wisdom in life. I see how important this is every day with my clients, myself and as I observe the world around me. I hope you gain some useful insights from this episode and would love to hear your thoughts as you read the book yourself.
