Here’s what 2020 taught me. Relationships are a non-negotiable. Connection is not a luxury that only some company cultures are good at. We are social, emotional beings. We need each other and we need our emotions engaged to do good work. We are all looking for leaders who will acknowledge this very human part of us, understand our perspective, and lead us with whole life understanding.
To help you find your groove early in 2021, I’m bringing back a favorite guest to kick off the new year on The Porch. We are mixing science and art on this one with one of my favorite neuroscience researchers and poet, Ann Betz. We’ll be talking about why having heart-centered orgs and a person who holds that space (people with titles like Chief People Officer, Heart Officer, Culture Coach) make sense for both the brains and the hearts of the people on your team.
Ann Betz, CPCC, PCC, CNTC, is the co-founder of BEabove Leadership and an international speaker and trainer on the intersection of neuroscience, coaching and human transformation. Ann served as the neuroscience consultant to The Coaches Training Institute (CTI) for many years, and provides neuroscience, leadership and coaching consulting to many other corporations and non-profits.
I’m sitting in an audience of 200 other public speakers waiting to hear from Broadway playwright and performer, Bo Eason. He is brilliant. When he’s on stage I ignore my cell phone entirely (which says a lot coming from a millennial).
He walks on stage, puts his arm around Joan Rosenberg and says “if you want to be an incredible public speaker, you need therapy. You need a therapist on your team to help you process the pressure and the ego it takes to do this for the long haul. You are here to GIVE to the audience, not take. You don’t need the audience to give psychologically and emotionally to you. You need to give to THEM. Get a therapist to take care of yourself so you can truly take care of others.”
Ever since that moment, nearly five years ago, I’ve been grateful for my weekly appointment with my therapist. It has become an anchor for my week and how I show up for the people in my life. I am so grateful for this unexpected (and strange) advice from Bo!
And as a little holiday gift from me to you, I figured it was about time I introduced you to Joan. She’s not my therapist, but she’s the therapist to a who’s who list of celebrities and someone I have deeply admired for a long time.
Joan Rosenberg, PhD, is the creator of Emotional Mastery and a highly regarded expert psychologist. Her two books, Ease Your Anxiety and 90 Seconds to a Life You Love: How to Master Your Difficult Feelings to Cultivate Lasting Confidence, Resilience, and Authenticity have been pivotal resources for me in my life.
Join me on The Porch as I talk with Joan about how we can all work through difficult feelings that may be circling as 2020 comes to a close.
I can't wait for you to meet my next guest on The Porch, Robb Holman. He's an internationally recognized leadership expert, executive coach, keynote speaker, podcast co-host, and best-selling author. He has a heart for authentic relationships and a true talent for equipping people with the skills and the knowledge necessary for their success.
In his most recent book, All In - he outlines his counterintuitive approach to leadership. He says:
"So much in leadership comes down to how you build trust, but organizations are often obsessed with numbers. They care about how much is built, but not how it is built. Imagine if leaders would channel that energy in a different way? A way that focuses on "the one" rather than the crowds."
Hmmm.... As you can imagine, this will be a refreshing look and a lively conversation. Want to join us?
Join me as I chat with Adam Weber, Chief People Officer of Emplify. We will be discussing employee engagement, culture, and team development – because in the year of COVID, these topics seem more important than ever (right?!). You’ll love hearing about how Emplify takes a data driven approach to understanding employee engagement, and I can promise you we’ll be talking about how that data helps us work with different generations on our work teams (and in the rest of our life too).
Oh, 2020. The year of ups and downs, pivots and new ways of… well, everything.
If you’re like me, you probably feel like you have a few emotional bumps, bruises and battle scars from navigating the past few months.
I always love sharing my go-to resources with you, but especially when times are tough and we all need a little boost.
That’s why I invited my friend Ryan Stanley to join me on The Porch next week. We’ll be talking about lessons learned about ourselves and others in the age of COVID, and Ryan will share why being patient, present and joyful can make all the difference (even in a year like this… actually, especially in a year like this).
Won’t you join us for this conversation? Bring your dog, a glass of end-of-summer iced tea and your questions for Ryan. You’re going to love being a part of this episode!
Oh, believe me. This one is going to be good. I’m turning up the volume on The Porch with my good friend, Amy Woodall. One of the reasons I love and appreciate Amy so much is because she is obsessed (in a good way) with keeping it real.
She’s a straight shooter, a to-the-point trainer and advisor to many, and truly practices what she preaches. On this episode of The Porch, Amy and I will be talking about what she calls “Owning Your 50,” or how to take responsibility for your life and recognize your personal power. Wow. See, I told you this would be a don’t-miss episode.
WHEN: Tuesday, August 18th at 4pm
Don’t you wish you could predict the future (especially this year!)?
I’m hearing from so many of you who work in Human Resources that you’re constantly being asked what will happen if/when/maybe things go back to normal… if we even know what “normal” is anymore!
I decided it was time to bring in one of the brightest minds in the state of Indiana to help us all understand where the trends in HR are headed as we adjust to changes in the workplace. Join me as I talk with JoDee Curtis, the Founder of Purple Ink and the Chair of the 2020 HR Indiana statewide conference as we explore what HR pros can expect in the months ahead.
Jill Castilla is the president of Citizens bank in Edmond, OK and is most recently in the news for partnering with Mark Cuban from Shark Tank, to help get much needed funds into our hands QUICKER during a national crisis. Anytime in the last 3 years when I've talked about the future of banking, I pull up a slide with Jill's face on it. Not just because she's making huge strides as a leader in her industry, but because she really LISTENS and cares for her colleagues and clients.
Come chat with a national leader, who cares about her community deeply, and is making a life changing difference in thousands of people's lives. I know you'll feel empowered after hearing from her.
WHEN: Tuesday, July 28th at 4:30pm
I want to hear from YOU! Do you have a question spinning in your head that you'd love to ask? Generational questions about your team? Figuring out how to coach (and really love) your teammates well? A scenario you want feedback on?
I'd love to hear from you in advance of our time on the 21st and if you're willing to be bold, come on The Porch to chat about it. Send me an email! If you'd rather write your question to me and stay anonymous, that works too.
Join us live to hear the questions and answers and gain some new insight.
