104. Establish Better Connections By Understanding The Neuroscience Of Engagement
As leaders, we want to positively connect with, influence, and impact others. But, getting individuals to feel comfortable to engage with us isn’t always easy.  There’s an evolutionary reason for this. If people are not sure of their situation, they will default to reading it as unsafe and retreat.   Whether it’s your direct report, your boss, or even your child, there’s something essential that you must know that precedes every good interaction: the other person must perceive you as safe to engage with. But, in a world where so many things are perceived as a threat, how do we not appear dangerous too?    In this episode, I’m sharing with you my simple 4-step S.A.F.E. process that the savviest managers and most effective leaders use that will drastically increase the quality of your engagements and allow others to not only feel safe but truly empowered by you.  Our mission is to help you become unstoppable so you can do the best work of your career while you enjoy more inner peace and freedom.

103. How To Overcome An Upper Limit Problem
Each of us has a limit – think an internal thermometer – for how much success we will allow ourselves to have. This is called your “upper limit” or your success comfort zone.  When you exceed this perceived limit, you unconsciously sabotage yourself and return to an old familiar place where you feel in control. But when you understand the concept of having an “upper limit,” you can truly learn how to overcome it and allow yourself the desired success in your business, your career, your relationships, and your overall life. Tune in to this episode to learn how to spot your upper limit problem, recognize the self-sabotage when it happens, and get comfortable being uncomfortable so you can move closer to the career and life you say you want.  Grab your copy of The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks here.

102. Rethinking Getting Things Done (4 Tools To Make Better Choices With Your Time)
How do you manage getting everything done and still have a life of your own? The answer I have for you today may not be the one you expect. This daily quest of “getting things done” and chasing work-life balance is always on my clients’ minds and it’s one that many of us struggle with. In this episode, I’m sharing the game-changing lesson I learned on a trip to Europe: sometimes we move too fast. Society’s training leads us to believe we will feel good when we get it all done, but if we deny the reality that we’re never actually getting it all done, we are destined to be unsatisfied as long as we remain on this impossible quest. Tune in to this episode to learn 4 techniques to stop being motivated solely to get it all done, to make better choices with your time, and reconfigure how you determine your worth. Our mission is to help you become unstoppable so you can do the best work of your career while you enjoy more inner peace and personal freedom.

100. Leading From a Heart at Peace

100. Leading From a Heart at Peace
To celebrate our 100th episode, I’m sharing a hot topic that I am passionate about and that I’ve never shared until today!  It has to do with how we approach solving our problems, fixing our relationships, and advancing results.   I am bringing this up because our life is filled with problems to which we spend our days seeking solutions.  All day long we seek to fix things — the economy, security, our children, our marriages, those we manage.  The reason so often we remain mired in our problems even when we have exceptional solutions is because of what happens BEFORE we seek to fix the problem.  In other words, it has EVERYTHING to do with how we approach these problems for which we believe we have the answer.  As a leader, it is no longer enough anymore to simply ‘fix it’ or ‘get it done.’  It’s not enough to find and execute the ‘right’ solutions.  It matters how we got there. Do we create war or bad blood or bad sentiment or do we cultivate trust and peace in the process?  It matters because an intelligent strategy is only effective when it is connected to a peaceful inner one.  Otherwise, even the best solution will be unheard and dismissed.  This episode will reveal what your solutions are missing and what you must do BEFORE your best ideas are ever heard. I will show you how to implement the unique differentiator in problem solving and the anatomy of peace.   I’ll share a personal story along with the story of a Black man and KKK member, and a  current Supreme Court Justice.  You want to tune into this episode to learn how to be heard when presenting your exceptional solutions.  Our mission is to help you become unstoppable so you can do the best work of your career while you enjoy more inner peace and personal freedom.

99. How To Boost Your Patience, Energy and Progress So You Can Do the Best Work Of Your Career
It happens to the best of us. We find ourselves impatient and frustrated that we’re not accomplishing or creating fast enough.

Today, I want to introduce you to a  game-changing tool that will help you boost your patience and energy for whatever masterpiece you currently are or want to build.  This tool has been responsible for helping many left-brain dominant, high-performers get out of their own way and onto building the best work of their career.  It’s also a great reminder that getting back to basics helps you gain the clarity and passion to ultimately succeed at the mission behind  your work.    Our mission is to help you become unstoppable so you can do the best work of your career while you enjoy more inner peace and personal freedom.

98. Unleashing the Power Of Fun (plus my 4-Part Sensational Summer Blueprint)
When was the last time you did something just because it delighted you? When was the last time you broke from your routine and were fully immersed in an activity for pure enjoyment? Or when you added a little absurdity into your day simply because it made you feel alive?  Doing something for the fun of it not because it serves some greater purpose may seem like a luxury to you today, but research confirms something quite different. Far from being frivolous, self-indulgent, irresponsible, or even selfish, having fun is actually ESSENTIAL to a life well played. Unfortunately, in our uber goal-focused lives, as much as we crave activity for pure fun, we have a hard time giving ourselves permission to embrace it.  Today, I’m sharing with you a personal moment that reminded me not only that it was time to get my play on again regardless of what I had accomplished, but some of the science behind unleashing the power of fun in our lives. I’m also sharing with you my go-to 4-part blueprint (and challenge!). It’s a ritual I do at this time every year.  When you do it you’ll ensure you don’t get to the end of summer and realize you  missed out or denied yourself the fun that you need and silently crave.

97. Embracing Fear Without Being Flattened By It

97. Embracing Fear Without Being Flattened By It
Have you ever hesitated to make a key call in your business? Go for a heavier weight at the gym? Say “yes” to a great invitation? Or move forward in your most important work? Or big idea? Today’s episode is perfect for you if you’ve noticed your attachment to certainty or getting it right may be slowing you down. Oftentimes, attempts to avoid situations that might be uncertain are unconsciously disguised as being busy, over preparing, or refining our work.  Ultimately, it becomes impossible to innovate, share controversial ideas or effect the change we want.   The truth is fear can hold you back and limit you in every area of your life without you even knowing it. That’s why today I’m sharing with you the one lesson I wish I knew years ago: no matter how accomplished, how much older, or how recognized you become, fear is going to accompany you. And the worst problem we can actually face is not knowing that it’s fear that’s holding us back. Join me in this episode as I share the things I feared most, how surrendering to that fear led to my greatest experiences, and my favorite approach to acknowledge your fear and use your past to inform how to create your most satisfying and rewarding present and future.   The good news: You can change your relationship to fear and allow this to be the end of avoiding situations that might bring it.  I am glad you’re here.

96. A 10-Minute Challenge To Uncover What You Stand For

96. A 10-Minute Challenge To Uncover What You Stand For
If you’re looking to bring more energy, freedom and meaning to your work and days, uncovering what you stand for may be what you need. Do you ever have a day, when despite accomplishing a lot, you step back and question  is this meaningful? Or you wonder what is the reason for all the effort and energy that you expend daily? Do you wonder if what you are doing matters? If so, you are not alone. The pursuit of goals alone can be very unsatisfying. The extrinsic rewards of money, achievement and admiration do not fill us.  If you want to guarantee that your days reflect what is most important to you, that your work is contributing to something beyond yourself, or you’re simply looking to reinvigorate your team, this episode is for you.  There is quite literally no better formula for bringing forth the genuine brave warrior in you and others, than knowing what you stand for.  And in this episode I talk about a no-nonsense formula to uncover your stand, that thing that makes you courageous, how to distinguish it from a position, and what knowing your stand can do for your business and even your personal world. When you uncover your stand you will feel a surge of energy and freedom that many describe they’ve been missing over the past couple of years. Today I’m giving you the tools you need to get clear on what you stand for and how to use that knowledge to guide all that you do.
