The Freedom Fridays Podcast started as Pete Clark's weekly experiment with time and focus. Where the aim was to reclaim Fridays and make them a day free from the constraints of work. The podcast has since evolved to become Pete's weekly conversation with ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

We explore some of the big changes people have gone through and what’s helped the journey. The intention is to share as openly as possible some of the ingredients – the good, the bad, the ugly – that shape our shift from ‘I have to’ into ‘I choose to’.

The lessons are hiding in open sight within the conversation – it’s up to you how you apply them.

    In Episode #53 Pete chats with Conor O’Malley, a Scot with an Irish name and an English accent, who now calls himself an Australian too. Conor is an executive coach for leaders who want to learn, and be more effective leaders of their business, their team, and in society. He is also the author of “Trust – Begins and ends with self” and the creator of the life and coaching philosophy Observe | Choose | Act.

    Conor and Pete chat about the definition of a leader, how it’s changing, and the importance of being a more effective leader in and of society. They discuss the internal freedom gained from letting go of a story that is holding you and how that, in turn, leads to external freedom. And they look at the concept of shifting your way of being so you can shift your way of doing.

Karen, with her 30 years of experience, has a deep understanding of what it takes to transform a business culture from the ‘inside out’. Ask Karen what her purpose is, and she’ll say it’s helping you realign with yours so you can realise your full potential. 

    Pete and Karen have an in-depth conversation about being free to be who you are, the pitfalls of comparing yourself to others, and the small practices that need implementation to make lasting change. 

    As part of the podcast Karen shares her penned poem Come As You Are:

    If you want your team to achieve a lot more, please leave your hierarchy at the door.Come join the discussion as the person you are, be present, and curious don't judge from afar.

    Open yourself up to not being 'the boss', diversity of thought should be nurtured not lost. Every team player has the potential to share,tho' willingness comes when there is trust and care.

    So be the boss that shows the spirit to create, and not the one that needs to dominate. And when you do leave your hierarchy at the door, just watch how your team will achieve so much more!
