Growing in the direction that feels right for you - My Story - Episode 12

9/18/2018
More
There's no doubt that my decision to leave my corporate job was the biggest step that I've ever taken in pursuit of being who I truly want to be in the world. But my path of discovering cultural laws that were limiting me and re-defining how I choose to live my life didn't end there. What challenges have I faced and how did I overcome them? Right now, I'm facing another life decision that feels almost as big as when I quit my last job. Given everything that I've learned along the way, how...

Many ways to climb a mountain - Interview with Gina Hayden - Episode 11

9/4/2018
More
Growing up in South Africa, Gina Hayden experienced a set of cultural laws that most of us find hard to imagine. Television was banned by the government until she was ten years old and access to learning courses was restricted. What are Gina’s reflections on that time and how did her early experiences impact who she has become today? Sensing into a feeling of rebellion, Gina knew that she didn’t want to live by sets of rules and obligations that she had not created. Freedom and...

A Short Interlude

8/14/2018
More
In a very real part of my quest to be who I truly want to be in the world, I've decided to take a three week break from releasing a podcast episode and I've recorded a ten minute mini-episode explaining why. It's not just because its August that I've decided to take a short break. I'm working on a new passion project to support gender equality in schools, which I'd like to give some undivided attention to before the new school year starts. I'm also facing some new challenges of my own and...

Carve out the life you want - Interview with Carlos Saba - Episode 10

7/31/2018
More
Carlos grew up with a simple philosophy in life of following his nose. Academically successful, he could have pursued a number of different professions but his instinct told him that his soul would have died if he followed a career just for the money. What work did Carlos end up doing and why did he prioritise building a company that suited his lifestyle over one that made the most profits? Once we achieve a certain level of material success, we are often left pondering the question ‘what’s...

Being with all of who you are - My Story - Episode 8

7/3/2018
More
After a haphazard time in my twenties, I got a job with Flight Centre UK. It felt like this was something that I could probably do for about 2 years and then figure out what I really wanted to do with my life. I hadn’t realised then just how much growth, success and opportunity Flight Centre would offer me. Eight years later, I realised that I was in the wrong place and there was something else for me to do in life. What practices of self-reflection was I using at that and how did they...

Cecile describes how it was her body that eventually told her it was time to make a big life change.

Peeling away what isn't true - Interview with Elizabeth Lovius - Episode 6

6/5/2018
More
As a leadership consultant, Elizabeth understands that in business, winning over hearts and minds is equally, if not more important than winning based on intellectual debate. When this work led her to the principles of human insights, it felt like the rug had been pulled from beneath her feet. What was it that knocked her off balance and how did she find solid ground again? Her personal practice has led Elizabeth to a life that feels more free and trusting with less judgement of herself as...

In this episode, we welcome Alex Kjerulf, founder of Woo Hoo Inc and author of ‘Happy Hour Is 9-5’ and ‘Leading With Happiness’. Alex’s biggest passion in life is being happy at work, so much so that he left the successful IT company that he co-founded to pursue his passion full time.
