Wayfinding for the Weary Entrepreneur, with E. Keller Fitzsimmons

7/1/2020
It’s easy for entrepreneurs and leaders to get so caught up in the day-to-day that we fall into a kind of sleepiness. And for many, it takes a dark night of the soul to wake us up to what’s really important. But what if we’d rather not wait for a crisis to find our way? How can we develop the self-awareness to lead with intention and follow our calling? Today, we’re joined by E. Keller Fitzsimmons, the author of Lost in Startuplandia: Wayfinding for the Weary Entrepreneur. An accomplished tech entrepreneur and artist, she earned the Silvertip PwC Entrepreneurship Award and Speech Technology’s Luminary Award.

She explains how she learned to appreciate her strength of positivity and challenges us to own our strengths—and accept our shadow side.

Creating Superb Teams (Using 6 Team Conditions), with Dr. Ruth Wageman and Dr. Krister Lowe

6/3/2020
Most of us involved in the practice of leading and coaching teams take a relational approach, focusing on group dynamics and resolving conflicts as they arise. But what if we’re treating symptoms without getting to the root cause? All the conflict resolution in the world won’t help if a team lacks the underlying conditions necessary to be successful. So, how do we create an environment that puts our teams on a positive trajectory from the start? Today, we’re joined by Dr. Ruth Wageman and Dr. Krister Lowe, part of the core team of Team Diagnostics, LLC and co-hosts of the 6 Conditions Podcast. Ruth is one of the creators of the 6 Team Conditions Framework and Team Diagnostic Survey. She is one of the foremost scholars in the field of team performance, having led original research programs as a professor at Columbia, Dartmouth and Harvard Universities. She co-authored Senior Leadership Teams: What It Takes to Make Them Great. Krister is an organizational psychologist and team coach. He is the founder of the professional training platform The Team Coaching Zone. As a 20-year veteran of the team coaching space, he has developed an expertise in providing learning and development solutions for leading organizations around the globe. Ruth and Krister begin by walking us through the 6 Team Conditions Framework, explaining what makes their design more effective than a relational approach and what teams can do to assess their standing in each of the 6 areas. Ruth and Krister discuss the most common dysfunctions they encounter among the wide range of teams they coach and share what they are ultimately trying to accomplish through this work in fostering true collaboration. Listen in to understand what trends Ruth and Krister notice in their work with teams, what they are doing to support team leaders in meeting these challenges, and how YOU might benefit from a deeper understanding of the 6 Team Conditions Framework.

Mental Health for All, with Alexa James of NAMI

5/6/2020
We all assess how we’re feeling physically on a daily basis and use that data to inform our decisions. (If our knee hurts, we don’t run that day.) But we don’t do that with our mental health. Despite the fact that it drives our physical health and the way we see the world, we tend to consider mental wellness a luxury rather than a foundational piece of our wellbeing. Today, we’re joined by Alexa James, the Executive Director of the Chicago Chapter for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), an organization dedicated to providing hope and improving the quality of life for people affected by mental health conditions. A licensed clinical social worker with Master’s Degrees in Social Work and Child Development, Alexa has devoted her professional life to serving people living with mental illness as well as those impacted by poverty and trauma. Alexa begins by explaining how biology, genetics and environment impact our mental health, offering insight into what a toxic community looks like and what we can do to create communities of wellness. She introduces us to the idea of proactively asking employees what accommodations they need to navigate stress and describes how she set the tone for her team by prioritizing her own mental health. Listen in for advice on using person-first language to talk about people living with mental illness and learn what YOU can do to remove the stigma associated with mental health.

Anger: What It Is and How to Use It for Good!

4/1/2020
“Anybody can become angry. That is easy. But to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose and in the right way? That is not within everybody’s power—and is not easy.” —Aristotle We’ve been socialized to see anger as a bad thing. So, we ignore it and let it fester. Or we lose control and unleash it. But what if there’s a third option? What if we can learn to work WITH our anger and channel it to, say, solve problems or fight for justice? What if we can use our anger for good? Today, we’re discussing where anger comes from and what purpose it serves. We address the stigma around anger in our culture, reframing it as a neutral emotion that has benefits when we can choose it as a response. We go on to explore the relationship between the way anger is modeled for us as children and our ability to name and express it as adults. Listen in for insight into the research on gender differences and anger at work and learn how to leverage your anger to take action for the greater good!

Habits That Make You a Better Leader

3/4/2020
A habit is not something you do sometimes. Even something you do ‘most of the time’ doesn’t qualify. To be a true habit, the practice has to be a part of you. Something you do so regularly that it’s hard to give it up. And the quickest route to being a better leader is to establish habits that support the way you want to show up for your team. Today, we are sharing the five areas of habit development that have the greatest impact on leadership prowess. We discuss the communication habits you can use to inspire employees, explaining how storytelling and emotional language expand our ability to communicate effectively and guide a team. We introduce you to the power of planning to set boundaries around your time and energy and explore the tactical leadership habits that make for more meaningful and efficient meetings. Listen in to understand how being present with your people benefits both you and your team—and get our advice on how to cultivate new leadership habits that align with what matters to you!

Year-End Review and New Year Planning: 3rd Edition

1/1/2020
What intentions did you fulfill in 2019? Where did you fall short? Did unexpected circumstances change your plans? As driven, high achievers, we want to be in control of life’s outcomes. But life doesn’t always go according to plan. In fact, the most rewarding parts of life are often the most unpredictable. So, how do we plan for a new year knowing we can’t know everything? How can we set intentions without getting attached to a particular outcome? Today, we are walking you through our process for reflecting on 2019 and creating a vision for 2020. We look back at the last 12 months, sharing what we learned about tapping into a new level of commitment and welcoming the cycles of life—even when it’s painful. And we get real about the challenges we faced in this year’s planning process. We introduce you to the Life Purpose Reading that informed our process and discuss our personal intentions for the new year, describing how unknowns (like becoming a mom!) shift the way we plan and why it’s crucial to appreciate action in ALL its forms. Listen in for insight around focusing on who you want to BE versus what you want to DO and learn our framework for setting intentions in a way that embraces the unexpected.

The Imposter Syndrome with Dr. Valerie Young

8/21/2019
Maya Angelou famously said, “I have written 11 books, but each time I think, ‘Uh oh, they’re going to find out now. I’ve run a game on everybody, and they’re going to find me out!’” This phenomenon of feeling less capable or talented than people think—despite ample evidence to the contrary—is known as imposter syndrome, and it impacts 70% of the population. So, how does imposter syndrome impact our behavior? And what can we do about it? Today, we’re joined by Dr. Valerie Young, the internationally recognized authority on imposter syndrome and author of the award-winning book, The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women: Why Capable People Suffer from the Imposter Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It. Valerie’s career advice has been cited in media outlets such as BBC Radio, CNN Money, The Wall Street Journal and O Magazine, just to name a few. She has been invited to speak at 90-plus universities around the globe and for prestigious corporate clients such as Boeing, Facebook and Microsoft. Valerie begins by defining imposter syndrome and explaining how it manifests differently in men and women. She walks us through the ‘perfectly good reasons why you might feel like a fraud,’ sharing the social and situational factors that fuel self-doubt. Valerie also discusses the concept of stereotype threat and offers examples of how being an outlier influences our behavior. Listen in for insight around the coping mechanisms we use to protect ourselves from imposter syndrome and learn how to reframe imposter thoughts and replace them with new ways of thinking!

90-Day Commitments (Part 2)

7/31/2019
How do you measure success in the pursuit of 90-day commitments? Is it more important to follow through on what you set out to do—even if doesn’t feel right? Or allow yourself the flexibility to pivot to a goal that feels good? What can you learn from the habits that don’t stick? Today on the podcast, we’re checking in to share the outcomes around our 90-day commitments. We discuss what we learned about the difference between writing for creativity versus output, explaining how our true intentions (to write without a deliverable in mind) revealed themselves through the process. We also explore the idea of chasing your core desired feelings and allowing goals to evolve to meet your needs. We go on to describe how our 90-day commitments around daily meditation shifted, offering a more expansive view of what meditation looks like and inspiring us to live in consciousness. Listen in for insight on learning from what you choose NOT to do and learn why it’s more important to be flexible within the framework than to force yourself to pursue goals that aren’t working.

Belonging and Psychological Safety

7/10/2019
Do you feel a sense of belonging at work? Or do you spend time and energy trying to fit in? Do you downplay any part of who you are? Do you feel safe being vulnerable with colleagues? Cultivating a sense of belonging and psychological safety is crucial for innovation, creativity and risk-taking, yet most of us don’t feel comfortable bringing our whole selves to work. Today, we explore the concepts of belonging and psychological safety, describing what it looks and feels like when these attributes are present—or absent—in work culture. We discuss Brené Brown’s research on the distinction between belonging and fitting in and explain how our sense of belonging impacts our performance at work. We go on to introduce the idea of psychological safety and describe its role as a core competency of high-functioning teams. Listen in for insight around how leaders show up in organizations with high psychological safety and learn how creating intentional connections inspires engagement at work!

Feminine Genius with LiYana Silver

6/19/2019
We all have an innate ability to connect to the collective intelligence. To be in our bodies. To feel. But these predominantly feminine qualities are seen as weaknesses in a patriarchal culture, so we disown these vital parts of ourselves. What would happen if we used intuition AND logic to make decisions? What if we could access and acknowledge the message behind our emotions? What becomes possible when we reconnect with our feminine genius? Today, we’re joined by LiYana Silver, the mentor, speaker and author behind Feminine Genius: The Provocative Path to Waking Up and Turning On the Wisdom of Being a Woman. She supports success-minded women in waking up their body wisdom and turning on their feminine strength—in and out of the office. In her 13-plus years of private coaching practice, LiYana has worked with artists, healers, entrepreneurs, and Fortune 500 executives, and her work has been featured in Forbes, The Huffington Post and Jezebel, among many other media outlets. LiYana begins by defining feminine genius and describing the vitality and personal satisfaction that come from plugging into the wisdom of our bodies. She offers insight around accessing our intuition when it comes to business and putting pleasure before productivity to get more done and improve the quality of our work. LiYana also speaks to why competition among women is in our cultural DNA and how we can practice letting other women in. Listen in to understand the benefit of connecting to the collective soul and learn to value the core messages in emotions like anger, grief and depression.

Contemporary life makes it incredibly challenging to stay present. We are processing more information than ever before, and with so many things vying for our attention, it’s no wonder that our focus is fractured. So, what can we do to truly experience life? To show up for the people we care about? To stay grounded in the NOW? Today on the podcast, we discuss what being present looks like in our lives. We share our own struggles to stay present when we’re overscheduled and describe the challenge of being responsive to social media for business—without getting sucked into the world of the screen. We go on to cover the concept of psychological hygiene, exploring how to replace damaging ruminations and what-ifs with positive thoughts of being safe and whole. Listen in for insight around practices you can use to stay grounded in the moment and learn the benefits of being a fully present leader!
