"We have to think differently to achieve different results" Liz's guest on this episode of The Leadership Coaching Group podcast is Pragito Dove. Pragito has twenty years of stress management and meditation counseling experience. Listen as we discuss meditation and how it benefits leaders. Pragito defines meditation as awareness and being in the present moment. When we lose focus, the mind distracts us from what our bodies are doing. Pragito believes that our mind is the bridge between our inner and outer selves. Although we need the mind, we don't need the anxiety that the mind creates. Listen, as Pragito shares how to know that the mind is controlling us in any given moment, how, when you judge other people, you are judging yourself, and why we are drawn to authentic people. Are you distracted and having trouble focusing? This is the episode you don't want to miss. Liz wants to introduce you to the concept that your thoughts have a primary impact on your life. It isn't just other people or a pandemic; these are just other factors that can influence you, but what's most important is how you allow your thoughts about those things to drive your actions.

This episode is for the truly high achiever.  For the leader that gets up at 3am or 4am to chip away at your big goals.  For the leader who looks left and right and is aware of the pain, striving, exhaustion, and overwhelm of others, but doesn't consider that they might be victim to all of those same threats.  This is not for someone who sleeps in, talks about "cheat days", or doesn't live to be of use to others and the world...you've already got this stuff mastered.  For that small select group that actually fits the prior description, here's what we are covering: Getting a sense of how burnout might be sneaking up on you Being real about what you need to accomplish right now Exploring what NOT doing certain work does (or doesn't do)to you Taking time and making space for doing very deep thought work and honoring that such work might exhaust you Follow us on @theleadershipcoachinggroup on IG and @leadershipcoachliz on Facebook

Have you heard about mass layoffs via email and robo-callers?  Safe to say, that's a little bit of a communication red flag.  After all, the way we speak to employees impacts their vision, not only of us as leaders, but of entire organizations.  So do we need edit our language now that we are in unprecedented times?  We are discussing that and more in today's episode.  
As the varied stressors the pandemic continue to build, issues around mental health are starting to become more common in the news.  For leaders who feel incredibly taxed by their new home demands and new work challenges, this could be a real concern.  Though we cannot offer any medical advice, we are chatting about some DIY ways to maintain personal grounding and interpersonal connection during these trying times.

Leaders often love to be problem solvers.  And while this absolutely can be a strength, it is not necessarily the right mindset to take into conversations with your employees. Why?  Because active listening is more about creating a safe psychological space for others to speak freely so you can explore the root cause of their problems.  And the best way to connect, according to Dr. Marcia Reynolds, is through non-reactive empathy.  By removing the "reactive" behaviors commonly associated with empathy, you allow the focus to stay on your employee instead of distracting them to focus on your reactions.
