In this episode, Sina Haghighat talks to Anand Dattani about his spiritual journey; exploring his learnings from spending his summers serving and learning from Monks in ashrams across India. Anand covers how he incorporated his learnings from living the Monk life to living the corporate life and states that resilience and consistency are the key ingredients for success in anything that you aspire to do. At the age of 15, he started to dive deeper into his spiritual journey through his friend Jay Shetty who later on convinced Anand to move back to London from Cardiff whilst he was at University as he was concerned about his spiritual growth there. It is clear that Anand’s journey has stimulated personal growth and instilled a bulletproof mindset; allowing him to pursue his passions and purpose through his own podcast, ‘The Journey Onwards’, where he talks to amazing individuals to relive their backstory and explores how their upbringing and family culture has shaped their values, character, and views on popular life topics.   Connect with Anand: Instagram | @anandsworld Podcast Instagram | @thejourneyonwardspodcast Website | www.podcast.thejourneyonwards.com   Connect with First Serve: Instagram | @firstservepodcast   Connect with Sina: Instagram | @sinahaghighat Website | www.sinahaghighat.com
In this episode Sina Haghighat talks to Ryan Clifford, David Sint and Sanaya Khambatta about the Summer Institute; a program established through the Tech Allies Network to provide University Students with insights into the working world along with essential skills to give them that competitive edge once they enter the workplace. The program has been offered as a face-to-face program for the last couple of years, but in 2020, due to the global pandemic, the team adapted and offered this program virtually which resulted in hundreds of applications from students all over the world. The program is continuing this year which will include masterclasses, challenges and hands-on activities led by professionals from leading tech companies. What Ryan, David and Sanaya have clearly demonstrated is their eagerness and passion to give back to the community and witnessing the growth of students and their appreciation for the initiative is what keeps them motivated to keep this going. If you’re around this summer and you are a University student interested in tech or know someone that is, sign up to the summer institute this summer.

The world needs us to create and foster meaningful communities. As individuals we crave to be part of a community as we are social creatures. We want to be part of community that shares the same values, interests and missions.

In this episode, Jon and Ryan talk about how they created the Tech Allies Network and reflect on how current world events encouraged them to adapt and create a digital community that has enabled them to scale globally. The Tech Allies Network committee consists of a group of industry professionals who are focused on providing cross industry knowledge and development surrounding technology, to professionals.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing a pivotal role in predictions, clinical decision making and diagnosis; revolutionising the healthcare sector by empowering doctors. AI can predict and diagnose disease at a much faster rate than most healthcare professionals, but will AI replace them? In this episode, Dr Keith Grimes takes us through how Babylon Health is utilising AI with the combination of human expertise to 'put an accessible and affordable health service in the hands of every person on Earth'.  AI is helping Babylon Health healthcare professionals work faster and more efficiently and has built a platform to provide personalised and interactive healthcare to patients. Also, through the use of AI-powered chatbots the process of reviewing patient's symptoms have been streamlined; with the chatbot recommending a virtual check-in or face-to-face visit with a healthcare professional after the review.  Connect with Keith: Twitter | @keithgrimes Website | www.drgrimes.co.uk  Connect with First Serve: Instagram | @firstservepodcast Connect with Sina: Instagram | @sinahaghighat Website | www.sinahaghighat.com

#8: We Are All Leaders

#8: We Are All Leaders

2020-11-1444:24

Most of us think that leadership isn't for everyone or that we need to reach a certain age in order to become a leader. You don't need a title to be a leader. The reality is that we are all leaders. We are leaders of our own lives and within our friends and families. If you want to get anything done, it requires leadership. If you want to experience change, it requires leadership. And most importantly, you can’t do it alone. You need a team around you. A team that is aligned to your movement, to achieve greatness collectively and edge everyone closer to their ambitions. It’s about collective leadership and co-creation.  In this episode, Sina Haghighat talks through his leadership experience with David Sint from the Tech Allies Network. Sina dives into what it was like to manage a global team as the youngest team member and how he went about assembling a high performing team. The leadership attributes he mentions can be applied to building your own team. Resources: Drive (Daniel H.

We tend to set goals that are focused on achieving outcomes rather than honing in on the process. As a result, we either fail to reach our goals, or meet them but cannot sustain them. If you want to be a top performer, if you want to have more meaningful relationships, if you want to live a healthy and prosperous life, you need the processes and systems in place to take you to the next level. Your life is the sum of your habits and if you want to experience any type of transformational change to enhance your quality of life, you need to focus on your habits. Not on your goals.  In this episode, Sina Haghighat takes you through 5 steps to build success habits of your own and provides his own personal examples that have put him in the best shape of his life both physically and mentally. The habits he has instilled have raised his self-awareness, increased his confidence, provided structure and stimulated learning and growth. By applying these steps, you will experience transformational change. If you have enjoyed the last 3 solo episodes, on discovering your purpose, setting goals and building success habits, Sina will be launching an online course soon which dives into these areas in more detail. The course is all about you, your journey, your strengths, your passions and your purpose. If you want to raise your self-awareness, gain confidence in your skills and talents and build success habits to you perform at your best, then this course is for you.

Have you set yourself goals and failed to achieve them? We set ourselves so many goals at the beginning of the year, but at the end of the year, we haven't come close to what we set out to do! Where do you want to be? What does success look like to you? Are your goals aligned to your WHY? Are you putting yourself outside your comfort zone to grow?

Do we really know how to listen? In this episode, Richard Mullender speaks to Sina Haghighat about the importance of listening and the common communication mistakes that we make. Richard is a former Hostage Negotiator and has had experience negotiating with the Taliban, dealing with extortion threats overseas and diffusing domestic sieges. His approach has had a global impact, where he has shared his insights with the UN and FBI. As the demand for his listening skills grew, he went on to establish the Listening Institute to teach the business world how to listen like hostage negotiators. By listening to understand, rather than reply, we can build more meaningful and authentic connections, therefore improving our listening skills is key.
