Episode 19 – Ask Me Anything Volume 1

Lately I’ve had several of my coaching clients say they need a “Rosie in their pocket” and have some sort of bobblehead or something with reminders to help them. After the laughter subsided, I thought maybe there’s another way. So I decided to put out an invitation to “Ask Me Anything” to the Show Up as a Leader Community, and there was a lot thrown at me. So this episode is for you...I covered how to make a difference when you don’t have the title or authority, how (and why) you can still show up courageously when others are armored, dealing with difficult people, and having conversations around important topics when you’re operating from a totally different paradigm than the other person. And, yes, by request, I take myself through the questions I ask every guest so you can know a little more about me. I hope you find some helpful insights and enjoy!

Rosie Ward, Ph.D., MPH, MCHES, BCC, CEO & Co-Founder - Salveo Partners

Dr. Rosie Ward is an energetic, passionate, compassionate leader, consultant, coach, speaker and author who focuses on transformation from the inside out. Her mission started over 20 years ago when she experienced firsthand the ill effects of working in a toxic work environment and found her wellbeing eroding. Since then, she has worked tirelessly to find a solution so this experience is no longer the norm. She is sought after to help rehumanize workplaces so that people are freed, fueled and inspired to bring their best selves to work – and home – each day.

Rosie serves as CEO and co-founder of Salveo Partners, LLC, a consulting and professional development firm focused on equipping organizations to find success while putting people back at the forefront of their business. They focus on leveraging The Fusion (the inextricable interconnectedness of organizational and employee wellbeing) to help transform workplaces and support people in integrating their personal and professional lives. A fierce advocate for humanity, Rosie consults with organizations of all sizes and industries, coaches leaders to be more effective, develops a growing community of Paradigm Pioneers, and serves on the leadership team for the Twin Cities chapter of Conscious Capitalism.

Her first book, How to Build a Thriving Culture at Work: Featuring the 7 Points of Transformation, has served as a blueprint for hundreds of organizations to break past old, outdated paradigms and rehumanize their workplace. Rosie and her business partner, Dr. Jon Robison, are honored to be among the founding authors of Conscious Capitalism Press for their latest book, Rehumanizing the Workplace: Future-proofing your organization while restoring hope, wellbeing and performance.

A lifelong learner, Rosie devotes herself to her own ongoing development and sharing her insights with others. In addition to having a Ph.D. and numerous coaching, assessment and program delivery certifications, Rosie was trained by Dr. Brené Brown as a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator. She is often referred to as a “Ph.D. with a personality” and is known for challenging and inspiring people to think differently about what it takes to become the best version of themselves and for organizations to foster their growth and development. She has an incredible gift for taking complex ideas about culture, leadership, behavior change, and what it means to be human and synthesizing them in a way that makes them relevant, understandable, and meaningful for people. Rosie currently lives in Minneapolis with her husband and son.
