From Behind-the-Scenes to Leaning Into Leadership, with Actor/Producer Cress Williams
META PERFORMANCE SHOW | Actor/Producer Cress Williams gives us a candid glimpse into life on set, playing the first African-American superhero on network TV and titular character in Black Lightning (The CW) and making his mark in numerous other hits: Friday Night Lights, ER, Veronica Mars, The West Wing, Hart of Dixie and Grey's Anatomy, among others. Cress tells Jason about the nuances of onscreen kissing etiquette--as learned from Queen Latifah on Living Single--and how he was impacted by Drew Barrymore's leadership style on set of '90s classic Never Been Kissed.

How to Overcome Indecisiveness + Develop a Clear Vision, with Matthew Jones
YOUR FINEST HOUR | Indecisiveness can feel strangely comfortable to us. We sometimes use it to justify our inaction because taking action and making bold choices requires vulnerability; it can lead to disappointment or failure or looking bad. Novus Global coach Johan Martinez-Khalilian talks with his client Matthew "MoJo" Jones about how to decide which career(s) to pursue and founding his podcast production company, Rainbow Creative, and becoming profitable all during the pandemic. They discuss the temptation of jumping to the next shiny thing, letting go of control, the pitfalls of too much choice, and how self-love was key in Matthew's decision to start his business. At the end of the episode Matthew makes yet another big decision. We hope you enjoy this conversation about decision-making, courage, and being more committed to your vision than to your fear.

New Year, New Perspectives On Achieving Goals

New Year, New Perspectives On Achieving Goals
ON COACHING | Why does the topic of New Year’s resolutions often elicit an eye roll? Maybe it feels cliché or maybe it’s your personal history with it or maybe it’s the national track record–an 80% failure rate by February. But what if we shifted our perspective around goal-setting from zeroing in on one particular outcome at one particular time of year to focusing on character growth and becoming a more committed being? A person who consistently follows through, sticks to their word, and has the power to make things happen in the world. Coaches Rosanna Tomiuk, Joseph Thompson, Randy Poon and Chris North turn the traditional idea of goal-setting upside-down, challenging listeners to rethink their approach as they discuss setting goals based on passion and inspiration, rather than on fixing problems; why engaged detachment is so effective; the trap of holding happiness hostage; and the benefit of community for accountability. They send you off into 2022 with specific goal-setting tactics that have made a powerful difference for them and their clients. Thanks for listening and Happy New Year!REFERENCED IN THIS EPISODE• Goal-setting approaches: S.M.A.R.T. goals and OKRs • S.M.A.R.T. goals apps• The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals by Sean Covey, Chris • McChesney, and Jim Huling• Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones by James Clear• One Small Step Can Change Your Life: The Kaizen Way by Robert MaurerWe’d love to hear from you!

The World’s Fastest Blind Man on Not Fearing the Unknown, with David R. Brown
META PERFORMANCE SHOW | Three-time Paralympian David R. Brown talks with us about winning Gold in the 100 meter event at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Brazil and becoming the fastest blind sprinter in the world. After losing his sight at age 13, David overcame the subsequent fear and depression by focusing his energy on his incredible physical abilities, rather than disabilities, and giving himself motivational pep talks under his breath while competing. David shares why he feels good every time another blind runner beats his time and describes the fascinating mechanics of racing while tethered to a guide runner and synchronizing their steps at record-breaking speeds. While David continues his Track and Field training in preparation for the 2024 Paris Games, he also runs a motivational speaking business and has begun playing competing in blind soccer (a.k.a. 5-a-side Football).

Avoiding Burnout + Mastering Rest in the Pursuit of Meta Performance

Avoiding Burnout + Mastering Rest in the Pursuit of Meta Performance
ON COACHING | Meta performance, when pursued effectively, pushes the limits of your capabilities and yields a new level of personal and professional achievement. But there is a risk to watch out for in the journey of meta performance; a slippery slope of expending all your energy on tireless hard work at the cost of physical and emotional wellness. "There needs to be an equal, proportionate upgrade of resting as you upgrade your performance." Listen to coaches Jason Jaggard, Jon Roberts, Amanda Jaggard, and Dan Leffelaar illustrate why self-care and rest are not weaknesses or indulgences but, rather, necessary fuel to allow you to sustain high levels of performance without succumbing to burnout.REFERENCED IN THIS EPISODE• Ep089: A Minute To Think with Juliet Funt & Jason Jaggard - The Global Leadership Podcast• A Minute to Think: Reclaim Creativity, Conquer Busyness, and Do Your Best Work by Juliet FuntNovus Global is a tribe of elite executive coaches who work with Fortune 500 Companies, Professional Athletes, World Renowned Artists and Business Leaders to create lives, teams and companies that go beyond high-performance.Book a free consultation with a Novus Global coach here:  This podcast is produced by Rainbow Creative with Matthew Jones as Senior Producer and Jeremy Davidson as Editor and Audio engineer.

The Holiday Bonus Episode: Family Dynamics, Connection + Grief
Navigating the holidays: three segments with Novus Global coaches Amanda Jaggard, Chris North, Dan Leffelaar and Johan Martinez-Khalilian.1. Family Expectations + AgreementsThe holidays can bring about both joy and immense pressure...demands for your time; high expectations from your kids; managing finances, travel, or sensitive family dynamics. Amanda shares insights from her various lenses over the years--single, married, divorced, before children, after children, and through lifestyle changes. She and the team detail three specific tools to use to set you and your family up for success during the holidays and beyond.2. Cultivating ConnectionWhy do we gather? For many of us, a desire for connectedness is at the root of the holiday tradition; yet meaningful connection sometimes gets overshadowed by a sense of burden and obligation. The group discusses this common disconnect and how to realign. Chris explores divisiveness, tension, curiosity, and why it is so beneficial to approach gatherings with a posture of "listening to understand, rather than speaking to be right."3. Grief + LossIt's natural to feel grief more deeply during the holidays, a time when we're expected to be happy. Johan, Dan and the team share personal stories about their own experiences with grief. They address different types of loss that people face--death, divorce, unemployment, the loss of an expectation ("Why don't I have a family yet?")--and how to create space for both sorrow and joy to coexist.Novus Global is a tribe of elite executive coaches who work with Fortune 500 Companies, Professional Athletes, World Renowned Artists and Business Leaders to create lives, teams and companies that go beyond high-performance.Book a free consultation with a Novus Global coach here:  This podcast is produced by Rainbow Creative with Matthew Jones as Senior Producer and Jeremy Davidson as Editor and Audio engineer.
