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 https://peteholliday.com/ 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 www.leaderswhogiveadamn.com 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 www.leaderswhogiveadamn.com to download your free infographic of 90 tips to be a Leader Who Gives A Damn. Also check out the quiz to find out if you're a leader who gives a damn!Next up is the final conversation in this four-part series, where we explore the importance in leadership in creating safe spaces.#podcast #strengths #cliftonstrengths #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #leaderswhogiveadamn #lwgad #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment
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 www.leaderswhogiveadamn.com 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 www.leaderswhogiveadamn.com 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
