Description

Welcome to "The Good Listening To Podcast" with me Chris Grimes! The Podcast that features "The Clearing", where all good Questions come to be asked - and all good Stories come to be told! Think "Desert Island Discs" but in a Clearing! Also think about William Shakespeare - and about Jaques in "As You Like It" in particular: "All the world's a stage. And all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances. And one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages". Jaques: Act II Scene VII. And as my Guest in the Podcast: Now is your 'moment in the sunshine' to share your story! "Who are you? What's your story? And what 'life-lessons-learned-along-the-way' would you like to share with us?" And just to get a bit "existential on yo ass" too (!) "What would you like your legacy to be?" and "How would you most like to be remembered?" And all my guests have at least 2 things in common: They are all Creative individuals - and all with an interesting story to be told! This is the place then, where - as my guest - we get to 'shake your tree' - hear your story - and listen to the life-lessons-that-you've-learned along the way! "Who are you? And what's the story that you tell?" So "A GLT with me CG!" is a new Podcast series from "MojoCoach", Facilitator & Motivational Comedian, Chris Grimes - with a strong storytelling imperative and with the simple aim of inviting my guests to a creative space of their choosing called "The Clearing", with some nice juicy 'storytelling metaphors' to also enjoy along the way, as we let their thinking unfold: The Clearing itself - a Tree - a lovely Storytelling exercise called "5-4-3-2-1" - some Alchemy - some Gold - and finally a Cake with a cherry on top! When you are "in flow" and truly "at purpose" what is the "Gold" and the "Alchemy" that you bring in the work that you love to do? And for the cherry on the cake: What's the best piece of advice that you've ever been given? What's your favourite inspirational quote? What advice might you give to your younger self? (And other juicy questions like that!) So yes! Join me, Motivational Comedian Chris Grimes and my guests - in conversation - to answer these questions and more, in a "GLT with me CG!" - which of course is a slippery slop to a "G&T with me CG!" (see what I'm doing there?!). Pull up a cup of coffee - or even better - a G&T! - and why not give it a "good listening to"? See also www.secondcurve.uk + www.instantwit.co.uk

So I understand the pressure of being the one in the spotlight that everyone is looking to for a clear story. And I understand the power of storytelling to make your messages memorable and engaging and easy to follow.Authenticity, connection, and clarity are the foundations of great communication, no matter what profession you're in. And for the last decade, I have been helping people demystify the art of communicating. I've been coaching, training, and developing courses that help people overcome their nerves, connect more deeply to their content and their listener, and create messages that resonate beyond the conference room table".A wonderful delight of a rich conversation indeed!Hurrah!So - thanks for listening to another episode of a "GLT with me CG!"The Podcast series that features "The Clearing":  Where all good questions come to be asked and all good stories come to be told!With some lovely juicy storytelling metaphors to also enjoy along the way:The Clearing itself - A Tree (where we get to "shake your tree to see which storytelling apples fall out, in the form of a lovely storytelling exercise called "5-4-3-2-1") - some Alchemy - some Gold - and finally a Cake with a Cherry on Top!Think "Desert Island Discs" but in a Clearing! Also think about William Shakespeare:"All the world's a stage,And all the men and women merely players;They have their exits and their entrances,And one man in his time plays many parts,His acts being seven ages..."Jaques: Act II Scene VIIAnd as my Guest in the Podcast:  Now is your 'moment in the sunshine' to share your story!Who are you?
