In the United States, we have always lived with the history and realities of racism.Whether we have lived with it as an active part of our life or have had the privilege to ignore it and deny it, it has shaped our understanding of our country and each other. Since racism has always been a loaded, hot-button, triggering topic to discuss, many leaders have flatly avoided talking about it. Since the summer of 2020, however, organizations are realizing that this issue is not going away.Workers want organizations that are inclusive and equitable. As such, the avoidance strategy that has allowed leaders to manage this issue in the past is emerging as the biggest problem of all.Fortunately for all of us, Gena Cox has taken the time to think deeply about how to open the door to these important conversations.Listen in for compassionate, insightful, and practical advice to help all of us navigate conversations about creating inclusion in the workplace.Join us as we discuss:How the root cause of the failure of most DEI initiatives is avoidance driven by a lack of skills on the part of even the most well-meaning leadersHow respect is the opposite of grandstanding and is the foundation of our only viable path forward to create inclusive workplacesHow to have respectful relationships with your employees even when difficult conversations and decisions are neededThe Unleashing Your Great Work podcast is sponsored by the Great Work Journal! The Great Work Journal is here to answer the question “But HOW?” How can we figure out what our Great Work is?

We are excited to bring you another encore presentation of a popular episode of Season 2. We hope you enjoy!As human beings, we are constantly focused on the doing, doing, doing, and Jeanette advises us that if we could just take a “power-pause” and listen more, we can gain a better understanding of what we need to accomplish our Great Work.Jeanette believes if we can listen more to ourselves, we can begin to understand what we need right now and truly begin to feel to engage in what Jeanette calls “mental listening”. We, as humans, are amazing, we are here to solve problems, and the things we worry about are the things we care about the most.If we can pause for a moment, and shift the “care for” to “care about”, we can understand that solving problems is not just about needing time off or time to get away, it’s about learning to “un-worry”. It is only then that we discover “self-care isn’t really about self…it’s about care.”The Unleashing Your Great Work podcast is sponsored by the Great Work Journal! The Great Work Journal is here to answer the question “But HOW?” How can we figure out what our Great Work is?

We are excited to bring you another encore presentation of a popular episode of Season 2. We hope you enjoy!In this week’s episode we are diving into the two kinds of people in the world: lone wolves and pack wolves. Pack wolves who are great at creating things in community, and lone wolves who are great at generating outcomes from their own internal motivations and drive. As a natural born lone wolf myself, I am making the case that we really need both sets of skills if we are going to do Great Work.Join me as we discuss:Why it feels easier (to me) to be a lone wolfHow developing the skills of the pack wolf can elevate and improve the lone wolf’s Great WorkThe pitfalls of being a disciple and the joys of being an apprenticeHow our pack wolf skills can help us understand our audience and enjoy our friends and familyThe Unleashing Your Great Work podcast is sponsored by the Great Work Journal! The Great Work Journal is here to answer the question “But HOW?” How can we figure out what our Great Work is?

We are excited to bring you another encore presentation of a popular episode of Season 2. We hope you enjoy!Do you remember a time when a project took you so long to complete because everything needed to be “just right”?Maybe you’re a music composer, and you can’t quite finish that new song because something in the lyrics just refuses to make sense.Or, maybe you’re like me, and you were writing a book that created internal turmoil because that book could only house thirteen brilliant ideas individually picked from a lifetime of knowledge.The explanation?Perfectionism.The problem with perfectionism? It’s impossible.It’s waiting for every single piece of the puzzle to be spotless.When we find ourselves confronting spouts of perfectionism, it makes accomplishing our Great Work ten times harder and ten times longer to achieve.If we can find a way to let go of being the best and pleasing every single person on the face of this earth, we can achieve something greater than perfection: Commitment to Excellence.I celebrate my willingness to be unique and my strength to fail fast.Because if we can’t let go of getting it right on the first try, there’s no possible way to achieve our Great Work in enough time to be able to celebrate it.Resources Mentioned: Join the Great Work Community here: amandacrowell.com/great-work-communityClick here to get your own copy of Amanda's book, Great Work.About The Host:Dr. Amanda Crowell is a cognitive psychologist, speaker, author, and coach focused on changing our perspective on the world of work.

Charlie Gilbert is a writer, composer, educator, and theater maker specializing in musical theater. Given my lifelong fascination with musical theater, this made him an obvious choice as a guest for this podcast! And while this episode is chock full of little musical theater tidbits, it’s also a beautiful look at what a lifelong dedication to Great Work looks like. Charlie started doing musical theater as a young man, in college, with his friends. 1979 he wrote Assassins, a musical whose idea was compelling enough to attract the attention of Stephen Sondheim; the musical that Sondheim eventually wrote based on Charlie's idea went on to win the Tony. After teaching and freelancing as a musical theater professional for a number of years, he had the opportunity to start an undergraduate musical program at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. His experiences as an educator and artist led to the development of a signature pedagogy for musical theater performers that he calls the SAVI System. And, for the last ten years, he’s been a composer in residence at the Enchantment Theater company. Listening to Charlie talk about the fire he still has in his belly for even more success in musical theater was inspiring, to say the least. Join us as we discuss:·   How to sustain your interest and passion for something highly competitive and full of disappointments·   What it was like to be peers with Stephen Sondheim, Jonathan Larson, and other broadway legends·   How to juggle multiple interests and areas of expertise in a field usually populated with narrowly focused artistsResources Mentioned: Join the Great Work Community here: amandacrowell.com/great-work-communityClick here to get your own copy of Amanda's book, Great Work.www.chasgilbert.comhttps://enchantmenttheatre.org/north-american-tours/harold/www.savisingingactor.comwww.linktr.ee/chasgilbertAbout The Guest:Charlie is a writer, composer, educator and theater maker who specializes in musical theater. He has been creating original work for the musical stage for nearly fifty years, and is perhaps best known for Assassins, his 1979 musical which was the source of the idea for the Tony Award-winning musical of the same name by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman.His other works for the musical stage include Gemini the Musical, an adaptation of Albert Innaurato’s hit comedy Gemini for which Charlie wrote music and lyrics. For the past ten years, Charlie has been composer-in-residence for Enchantment Theatre Company and has created original music and lyrics for works that have toured the US, including Harold and the Purple Crayon, which will be seen in theaters this spring.He started the undergraduate musical theater program at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 1991 and served as a faculty member and administrator there for over thirty years. His experiences as an educator and artist led to the development of a signature pedagogy for musical theater performers he calls the SAVI System; his book The SAVI Singing Actor was published in 2019, along with an innovative teaching tool called SAVI Cards, and...
Have you ever heard an idea that you thought you understood, but the more you heard, the more profound it became? Paula White’s idea about “Side B” leadership is one such idea!
