In this episode, I chat with Eddie Enever, a naturopath, meditation teacher and cancer survivor who is out there to spread a very important message surrounding stress, health and lifestyle.Eddie shares with us his incredible cancer journey and how the key to getting well was all about changing how he was showing up in life and business - and he drops some truth bombs along the way.We chat about the difference between acute stress and chronic persistent stress, the role of emotional coaching throughout a person’s cancer journey, plus hypothermic and hyperthermic treatments in the body and how they apply to different health situations.Key highlights on this episode include:As humans, we tend to jump into action when we can see and/or measure something, but when you can’t we can become complacentWhen two humans become vulnerable within a conversation, that’s when big shifts happenBreathwork needs to be your anchor whether it’s a physical, mental or emotional challenge.To find out more about Eddie head to his website, or connect with him further on Facebook and Instagram.#podcast #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment #mentalhealth #health #ruok #mindset #cancer #cancerjourney #naturopath #menshealth
In this episode I chat with Wendy De Rosa, Intuitive Healer & Founder of the School of Intuitive Studies. We discuss what intuition actually is and how it happens, the difference between empathy and empathic intuition, and how social media has impacted on how people are awakening and seeking teachers in this area. We also explore the validation of intuition especially in the Western world driven by science, reason and intellect.We touch on staying grounded and resilient with the frantic pace of life, and how by leaning into the front part of our body - trying to problem-solve life - we can get depleted. But if we learn to lean back into meditation and contemplation and filling up from source, that can give us the life-force energy for resiliency.Key highlights on this episode include:Consciousness is rising - more people are waking up to their abilities and gifts.How cultivating a practice of grounding yourself is a way to tap into your intuitionSo much self-care is needed to manage the intensity of what happens in business, so pausing becomes crucial to stay connected to yourself.To learn more about Wendy and her courses head on over to the School of Intuitive Studies, or connect with her on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.#podcast #inspiredenergy #intuition #intuitivehealer #energy #energyhealer #mentalhealth #health #entrepreneur #business #personaldevelopment #gratitude #school #leadership
Leah Keogh is a Strengths-based coach based out of Seattle, Washington state. She works with teams and large groups on assessing and bringing out strengths to achieve peak performance in both individuals and organizations.In this episode, we chat about Strengths-based emotional development in teams, how Leah uses her strengths as a tool to intuitively figure out what teams and individuals need, and why using pre-work to answer questions before a team-based strengths exercise has been a game-changer for both facilitators, leaders and teams.Leah’s top ten strengths are:Connectedness, Positivity, Ideation, Input, Empathy, Futuristic, Belief, Individualisation, Developer, and Command.Even though Positivity was the most surprising strength for Leah, it was Connectedness that had such a large emotional component to it. She sees the big picture, the dynamics, what’s emotionally happening for people - and she fits those puzzle pieces together.Key highlights on this episode include:As a leader or manager, you need to ask yourself - how do you feel you’re showing up? Where are you successful? What areas could be running smoother?When it comes to blindspots with your strengths, you need to look at who you need on your team to help you excel. How do we collaborate more for greater success?Leadership strength is in knowing your team - your people - and many corporations are missing that people aspect. It’s not just about the numbers.You can find out more about what Leah does over on her website LK Strengths, or connect with her further on LinkedIn.#podcast #leadership #culture #teamwork #facilitator #strengths #cliftonstrengths #growth
In this episode I chat with Pete Holliday - a self confessed futurist - about why it’s important to consider the impact of future trends on organisations and leadership.Pete is an Organisational Futurist and Business Agility expert who helps to solve long-standing organisational challenges, empowering staff and developing progressive and agile mindsets.So what does it mean to be a future-focused organisation? Essentially, it comes down to being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to navigating disruption. We chat about future trends, how to build leaders who are fit for the future, upgrading organisational systems and the fine balance between the organisation’s values and what the market actually cares about.We also touch on the six traits of progressive organisations and getting back to the human element in the work environment.Key highlights on this episode include:- We need to blend values set by leaders at the top level AND the lower levels of an organisation.- When dealing with rapid change or disruption in an industry, businesses must review what they do, then recombine or re-organise it in a different way to create more value for the market.- Why coherence, cohesion and coordination are key aspects of future fit teams.You can find out more about Pete and what he does over on his website or on LinkedIn. #podcast #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #futurist #futureofwork #vuca #lean #digital #agile #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment
In this episode, I chat to Jason Vidovich about human nature, vulnerability in leadership and the trends happening with our health in the quest for efficiency.Jason is an Organisational Development (OD) consultant with over 15 years experience working within the disciplines of OD, Human Resources and Learning and Development. He has consulted in this discipline, working and living throughout Australia and across the world.Throughout his travels, he has had some key awakenings about humans and their nature, both in work and play. At the core of it, people are people - no matter where you are in the world.We discuss leadership and vulnerability, how to bring that out in others, and how the recipient of training and coaching needs to be ready and willing to learn. There’s been many cases when an organisation hires a coach for their employees, and some take that as ‘there’s something wrong with me’ - the notion of feedback needs to flip from negative to positive. And finally, we chat about the power of active listening and the magic of words.Key highlights include:Take action on the weak signals, rather than waiting for situations to get worseWe need to move past coaching as being seen as being implemented when you’re doing something wrong, and flip it to coaching being about helping you achieve your potential and unlock your performanceStart to draw inspiration from your own life, what you already know and who you already look up to. Use this to shape your leadership role and style.You can find out more about Jason and his work over on his website - jvtc.#podcast #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment #mentalhealth #health #ruok
In the final part of the Leaders Who Give a Damn podcast series, we delve into the role of leaders creating a culture where people feel safe.Over this series, I partnered with Becky from Isogo Strong and if you know her at all, you know that she is a maven in the Strengths world. Becky partners with organisations across the USA to build cultures where people are more engaged and thrive. Becky also inspires couples and mums to look at life differently through a lens of strengths, focussing on what’s right and getting more flow back into their lives.Together, we get to chat about some aspects of leadership that are perhaps LEAST talked about yet have the opportunity to be MOST impactful in your role as leader. Whether you are in that role as a leader now or it is in your future, this series is for you.In this episode we discuss how creating safe spaces is all about trust – and freedom.The freedom to fail, to make mistakes, to have tough conversations and resolve conflict, and the freedom to talk about how you feel and not be judged by your leader or your peers. The greatest success with implementing this is everyone knowing the difference between freedom and expectation.We also discuss examples of spaces that are not safe and the further impact this had on the team and even the customers – it’s a long game that has far reaching effect.Other key takeaways from this episode include:The steps leaders need to take to start creating safe spaces – hint, it starts with how you show up!How we build a culture of trust and meeting the four needs of our followers.How to create an environment where there’s a collaborative and ongoing conversation.So, catch this conversation about Leaders Who Give a Damn on your favourite podcast app.Don't forget to also check out the other leadership conversations in this four-part series.Check out to download your free infographic of 90 tips to be a Leader Who Gives A Damn.

Ciera Tyler is a podcaster and public speaker, with a commitment to living a purpose-driven life after growing up in a strengths-based family.In this episode of the Inspired Energy podcast we discuss her unique strengths story, as Ciera actually discovered her Gallup strengths at the ripe old age of 12, through the encouragement of her father - Strengths coach, Brandon Miller CEO of 34 Strong). Wise beyond her years, Ciera was able to hone her strengths before reaching adulthood and thus able to apply them with purpose from a very early age.That’s not to say it was all easy! Throughout the podcast we discuss the challenges in knowing your strengths so young and how that shapes how you show up to your peers, as well as how you show up to classic school activities and events.Ciera’s top 5 strengths are Competition, Activator, Communication, Strategic and Achiever.Even though Ciera’s favourite strength is Communication as it’s given her purpose, she had to be coached through other Influencer strengths - especially Command - to be able to apply herself positively in leadership roles both in school and in her current role.Other key highlights on this episode include...Everyone needs to be approached differently, based on their individual strengths and lens that they see things through.Navigating deep relationships with others when the majority of your top strengths lie in the Influencer domain.Just because you know your strengths doesn’t mean you don’t take responsibility for how you show up. It means you have an extra responsibility to know how you may be perceived.Connect further with Ciera over on her website or say hi on Instagram.#podcast #strengths #cliftonstrengths #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment #mentalhealth #health #school #family #love #gratitude
In the third part of this special Leaders Who Give A Damn podcast series, we unpack the notion of doing less in the realm of leadership.Over this series, I partnered with Becky from Isogo Strong and if you know her at all, you know that she is a maven in the Strengths world. Becky partners with organisations across the USA to build cultures where people are more engaged and thrive. Becky also inspires couples and mums to look at life differently through a lens of strengths, focussing on what’s right and getting more flow back into their lives.Together, we get to chat about some aspects of leadership that are perhaps LEAST talked about yet have the opportunity to be MOST impactful in your role as leader. Whether you are in that role as a leader now or it is in your future, this series is for you.When you think about the role of leaders, there are a broad range of responsibilities, tasks and activities that leaders need to do. Often leaders can feel overwhelmed with all the stuff they need to do and how this gets in the way of the role of being a leader for the people that need their leadership every day.There is a different way and in this conversation, Becky and I explore achieving a bigger, more effective impact in your leadership through doing less.We explore why it is so easy to stay in the notion of ‘busy’ especially where you are using the momentum of the busyness to keep all the plates spinning. But is it about doing and rushing and being busy…or should it be about enjoying the journey and being connected with people, too?With busyness we can often get caught up in excess things filling our day. We need to start by asking, is this element that is filling my day really needed? We can also explore Professor Sidney Dekker’s concept of asking yourself (or your team!), “What’s the stupidest thing I have to do?” to open up the conversation around what is not effective in a role or task, and perhaps do something about it. Providing opportunities where your team feels like they can be more effective by doing less is also an important part of leadership.It was such a great conversation, with real takeaways that you can apply right away,, some of the key highlights on this episode include…· How can we implement the Lean strategy within leadership - achieving more with less and removing waste.· Strategies to analyse your daily tasks and achieve more through less.· The leadership mindset to embrace to be an effective leader, here’s hint, it’s not always about doing more! ;-)So, catch this conversation about Leaders Who Give a Damn on your favourite podcast app.Check out to download your free infographic of 90 tips to be a Leader Who Gives A Damn.

In Part 2 of the Leaders Who Give a Damn podcast series, we delve into the importance in how you show up, how relationships are so interconnected and affect each other. We discuss just how much your personal relationships impact the relationships you have at work, and why we also mustn't forget our relationship with ourselves AND our own health as well. Are you picking up and taking action on early health signs, just as you would take action on metrics not being delivered on at work?We also jump into planning and preparation, including how your physical environment looks (inbox, desk space, etc), so you can continue to show up and give your best to your team, your family and your self, and why there is an important emphasis on a solid and inspiring morning routine to get your mind into work mode - including being purposeful about your journey to work and how you spend it.Key highlights include:Whether you like it or not, as a leader, you’re on show. You influence others whether you like it or not. It becomes a ’trickle-down’ culture.Why it’s super important to prepare and plan for the next day or next week, reflecting on what has gone well and what the new focus is.As a leader, showing up for your team is directly affected by your relationships outside of the work environment, how you treat your health, the status of your environment and how you show up for meetings.Stay tuned for Part 3 of this 4 part series, where we focus on being a better leader through doing less.Check out to download your free infographic of 90 tips to be a Leader Who Gives A Damn.

Leaders Who Give A Damn - a special podcast seriesWhen Becky Hammond and I get together it’s like a powerhouse conversation, and this special Leaders Who Give A Damn (LWGAD) episode is no different. We discuss what are the little things that superstar leaders do on a daily basis (and your mindset around it), how to lead when your Strengths don’t lie within the relationship building category, and how breath work can enhance leadership skills.We also delve into the awareness that leaders have around where they’re investing their time, and how much time they’re investing into the technical aspects of their role versus the leadership elements of the role. And why every time you have a chance to interact with someone in a small way, starts to create a culture - whether you are present to it or not.Key highlights include:Why you need to have a workplace morning routine too - it sets the tone for the culture of the dayLeadership is not just a role, it’s not an aspect that you 'tick the box’ on a daily/weekly/monthly basis - it’s a way to show upWhy the old style working relationship between managers and people isn’t working - the practice of command and control is just not inspiring.This is part one of our four part series on Leaders Who Give A Damn. Stay tuned for more episodes in this series where we discuss more topics of leadership and making a difference.Check out to download your free infographic of 90 tips to be a Leader Who Gives A Damn.

In this episode I catch up with another awesome Strengths coach - Heidi Convery! Heidi is a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach and founder of Flourish LLC, a strengths-based coaching business focused on putting purpose back in the workplace.  I loved getting insights from Heidi about the Texas culture and how that influences corporate culture. We chat about why Heidi went into business for herself, her struggles with profitability and pricing your skills when YOU are the capital. We also discuss how Heidi leads with Includer (her other top 5 include Activator, Learner, Input and Belief), and why she strongly feels that everyone needs to know how much they matter. It is with this that Heidi prefers to work with smaller organisations so that she can get to know and impact each and every person - it suffices to say she is creating a huge ripple effect with her work! Key highlights on this episode include:The purpose of a coach is not to be there forever, it is to teach you how to do it for yourself so that you can take charge of your development.There is a need to get excited about WHO you are. It is not just who we are as an adult, but who we have always been our whole life.Inspired energy is that fizzy feeling inside of us that bubbles up - like a carbonated drink. You need to tap into that.To connect further with Heidi, visit her website or say hi on Instagram.#podcast #strengths #cliftonstrengths #gallup #leadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #leadership
TyAnn is a success guide and strengths guru, whose transformational strengths-based coaching and training empowers employees to discover the value of their unique abilities so they can become more engaged, build stronger relationships, and authentically show up in their daily lives.We cover a lot of topics in this episode, with so many gems thrown in!Including why TyAnn's time at Dell was more valuable than her MBA, how getting out of your environment and existing in a different part of the world opens your mind to other ways of being and thinking, and we dive deep into energy vampires (and energy-sucking tasks) and what you can do to mitigate this.Key highlights on this episode include:Companies need to ask - what does good look like? What does great look like? How can we measure success in this? What would it look like a year from now if we haven’t addressed this issue?Why the futuristic strength allows those gifted with it to see the future in a very tangible state, showing others how they can see the future beyond an initial hurdle.Energy is like a bank account, it’s not infinite and it gets depleted. If you spend your energy in a negative ROI way, you’re not going to have energy for the awesome things in your life.TyAnn’s top Strengths include Maximizer, Significance, Learner, Communication and Futuristic. And we’ll leave you with TyAnn’s definition of strengths based leadership (as it’s epic!): How do I go from knowing my superpowers into how do I understand the superpowers of my team and harness those for the best possible result together. How do I step up my leadership so that it becomes servant leadership to them - I have no success without their success.You can connect with TyAnn over on her website, on Twitter and LinkedIn. #podcast #strengths #cliftonstrengths #gallup #leadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #leadership

On this solo episode, Murray is inspired by magnetic fields and how these can mimic the environment of the application of our training and development.Magnets: have you ever thought about that magnetic field of energy? What about the parallels between magnetic energy and the energy around applying and cementing new ways of being?When we scatter iron filings/ferromagnetic material, then magnetic waves either attracts or repels those ferromagnetic materials.We are like iron filings in a magnetic field. These magnetic fields could be your work environment, home environment, friends circle, etc.You then go away and learn additional insights, and your world is shaken up. You may have new language, new framework, a new way of seeing the people around you. But then integrating back into your daily life - your daily environment - is where the challenge of change lies. Murray discusses the challenges of trying to integrate your new way of being into the previous culture, the previous systems, the old ways of doing things. And follows it up by discussing "locking in" those new learnings and creating an environment that facilitates them. #entrepreneur #business #change #mindset #attitude #learning #growth #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #training #development 
Alexandria Joy (AJ) is the powerhouse founder of UQ Power, a collective of Company Culture Architects supporting CEO's, HR and Marketing Directors to design and build strong company cultures that build their brand and market share through sustainable relationships.AJ's top 5 strengths are learner, connectedness, strategic, futuristic, and input - and you can see these shine through in this episode! We discussed why, as leaders, a lot of people go for mastery first. They take on external stimulus - do courses, read books, listen to podcasts - all to master becoming a good leader. It needs to be an inside/out game rather than an outside/in one.How? Through...mindset (going within to clear the slate and set up for success, know yourself)minimalism (strip away what doesn’t work for you - reduce the noise, the friction, reduce the need to do things just to please others), andmastery (then polish the stone, add the skills).Other key highlights on this episode include...When working with people or facilitating workshops, set your intention of allowing whatever needs to come through to be there - have the curriculum, but also meet people where they’re at.As leaders you can’t take the world or your team further than you’ve gone inside.The human mind can’t be creative and logical at once. So when everything is full - your space, your calendar, your mind - you can’t get into that creative space.You can find out more about AJ in the following spaces: Leading Ladies International, on LinkedIn, over at UQ Power and the The Joy Box.#culture #business #leadership #minimalism #selfleadership #personaldevelopment #business #entrepreneur #mastery #mindset #attitude #strengths #cliftonstrengths #gallup #inspired #inspiring #inspiredenergy #podcast #anchor

Graeme Cowan helps leaders and their tribes to create an environment, culture and have conversations that change people’s lives. His purpose is to help teams become more caring, resilient and growth oriented.Graeme helped Gavin Larkin and a small team launch the R U OK? movement in 2000 - the powerful question that has given permission for open conversation with mental illness and general life struggles. He is a regular media commenter, speaker and author of three books. Motivated due to his own mental breakdown in 2000, he has discovered simple rituals that can increase wellbeing and effectiveness and has created a career around sharing these with others.In this episode we discuss how to support a colleague in distress, the foundational things to do to encourage an R U OK culture in the workplace, why having good relationships with others is one of the key aspects to happiness and how improving your sleep is one of the fastest ways to improve your life. We also discuss my own recovery from my accident and how the emotional recovery has been the biggest challenge. Key highlights include... Most people are happy to ask R U OK? but are not sure what to do if they say no. So to support a colleague in distress, utilise ICARE - Identify, Compassion, Access experts, Revitalise and Exercise. If leaders practice their own self-care and sustainability, it flows on to what others do around them. If you’re not in good shape yourself, how can you support your team? The three cups of self care that we need to fill are Vitality (physical energy, exercise, sleep, nutrition), Intimacy (having positive and fulfilling relationships with others) and Prosperity (our contribution - whether it’s work, community focused, legacy, etc).Check out the I CARE framework for supporting a colleague in distress here - can find out more about Graeme and his work here or connect with him on LinkedIn. #podcast #inspiredenergy #inspired #inspiration #resilience #mentalhealth #health #leadership #culture #teamwork #teams #stressless #business #ruok
In this episode Jenni and I discuss the bigger picture in business, why systems and structures are so important for growth, and the importance of never losing sight of your values and your why.Jenni has a passion for developing helping people maximise their potential. With expertise in leadership development, team building, capability development, business strategy and facilitation, Jenni helps individuals and teams to understand their purpose, define their vision and to develop processes that will enable them to work to their potential, and beyond. She works with leadership teams to understand how they work and develop strategies to solve complex problems through new and innovative solutions. Jenni launched Elephant in the Room Consulting, a boutique consulting house specialising in the realignment of organisational culture and process.In this episode we discuss the bigger picture in business, why systems and structures are so important for growth, why Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz is a fantastic role model for leadership (and how Toto represents the value system), and we also talk about when something happens to shake up your life, give yourself the respect and time to process it internally. Key highlights on this episode include:Business owners not only have to look at the details but also the bigger picture too - we have a responsibility and a commitment towards that.We often hire for skill and experience rather than connection and fit, and long term success in the business comes from shared values. So before hiring, we need to get clear on what our personal and business values are.When we think about scaling a business, we often think technology, but what we also need to look at is how can you do you job consistently over time so that your business grows and that it still stays aligned with your mission and purpose.Find out more about Jenni over at Elephant in the Room, and connect with her on Instagram and Facebook.  #podcast #strengths #leadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #dorothy #wizardofoz
In Episode 16, Health and Wellbeing Coach, Dave Conley and I discuss unconscious habits and the very small steps we can take to change these, how to adopt radical self-care as the foundation for lifelong happiness plus the steps he took in rebooting his life after tragedy.Dave was put on this earth for some huge work - to upgrade the human experience and bring joy through transformation. Dave's life has included getting 32 million people on the internet for the first time, rebooting his life after tragedy, and now flipping the self-help business model by inspiring others to adopt radical-self care as the foundation for lifelong happiness. Dave’s top 5 strengths include Ideation, Strategic, Woo, Futuristic & Activator.In this episode we discuss unconscious habits and the very small steps we can take to change these, why the worst thing that happened to Dave turned out to be the best thing that could’ve happened, and why 4 small things (mindfulness, exercise, diet and sleep) that you’re doing right now, with the smallest shifts, can turn them into self care superpowers.He shares his journey of how losing his wife actually put him on a different path which transformed his life - losing 150 pounds, quitting cigarettes and his job, and launching his own business. Dave wholeheartedly believes that self-care can springboard your life into one that is limitless, and shares key highlights such as:Why 99% of what we do day in and day out is based upon our unconscious habits and how we feel about them. Those two things go together and basically drive us on automatic everywhere we go and with everything we do.You can change your habits in small ways, but if you can also change how you feel, and then establish new habits around that - then that’s where the magic happens.People feel guilty about spending time in their jobs and not with their family, so they’ll give up sleep, eating right and exercise, in favour of either spending time with family or being at their jobs. But the more time you spend on yourself means you can bring so much more to your loved ones, your vocation, your community and ultimately, your legacy.Checkout Dave's complimentary sleep tips at out more about Dave at, and connect with him over on Facebook and Instagram.#podcast #health #wellbeing #mindset #leadership #selfleadership #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business
