In this episode, Arthur Woods and I discuss how 2020 has taught us that we must be human-centered and shift our inner narrative to reshape our priorities. He shares what’s possible when we unlock the power of human potential, anchor on our purpose and create workplaces where EVERYONE feels like they can meaningfully contribute and make an impact - especially among people with disabilities and other underrepresented communities. And we talk about mindset shifts that help us wake-up and show up as leaders to influence positive change. Arthur is a dynamo leader taking a systems-focused approach to bring about impactful change and address biases that prevent inclusivity in our workplaces. I walked away energized and having greater hope for humanity and hope you feel the same.
In this episode, I chat with Nancy Pautsch, Chief Evangelist of Stakeholder Value (i.e., president) of Envision IT, about the value of listening when life throws “wake-up calls” at us and that it’s never too late to reset. We talk about her leadership awakening and how necessary it is to do the messy inner work and embrace the ongoing journey of developing ourselves, ground ourselves in the clarity our purpose brings, recognize that perfection is pure fiction and move from stress and fear-based catastrophizing to building our ability to ground ourselves and rise strong when we fall - and recognize we’re enough and have value. There's so much inspiration and wisdom in Nancy’s journey and our conversation. I know you’ll walk away thinking differently about your own leadership journey and nuggets you can hopefully apply to help you be intentional to show up fully and authentically in your life.
In this episode, Lynne Twist, Alexander McCobin and I talk about how, now more than ever, it is so critical for us to show up differently and more conscious. Lynne is the epitome of a conscious leader making a difference around her every single day and discusses the critical transformation we need to make from the unconscious and unexamined assumptions we hold to move from a lens of scarcity to sufficiency. Alexander is a beacon of energy and positivity to change the DNA of our business world and discusses the important role Conscious Capitalism is playing in this. The problems our world is facing demand we ALL show up as leaders and that the business and activist communities start partnering to find solutions together. We are neurobiologically hardwired for connection; our conversation reinforces this and that we need to partner and be in relationship to pave a path for a better, more sustainable future. I walked away inspired, encouraged and hopeful and know you’ll feel the same!
In this episode, Laura Hall and I talk about how important it is that we don’t let perfection be the enemy of progress and that seemingly small steps can lead to having a large impact. In other words, we all can start somewhere and have a ripple effect around us. Laura is an incredible force for good in this world and is bringing conscious leadership principles to a key stakeholder - our children. And we share a love of accessories! I hope you’ll walk away encouraged, inspired and energized like I was when we finished our interview.
In this episode, Bob Chapman and I talk about the incredible power of listening and a leadership and humanistic skill that can heal relationships, workplaces and communities and the mission he’s on to change the world through Truly Human Leadership. I’m so inspired by the path Bob is paving for a better future for our kids and us all and have his book ridiculously highlighted and tabbed. It’s always uplifting and inspiring to talk with him -- and this conversation was no exception!
