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.

    #78 Freedom Fridays Podcast Featuring Steve Ellis

    #78 Freedom Fridays Podcast Featuring Steve Ellis

    In Episode 78 Pete chats to Steve Ellis, a long-time friend and colleague who works in the same leadership and change space.

    Most will have heard the expression “the cobblers shoes”. Apparently, it derives from an old Spanish proverb which roughly translates to 'the cobbler's children have no shoes'. This means that someone with a specific skill (e.g. leadership and change) is often so busy assisting others that their own affairs (e.g. leadership and change) go unattended.

    The reason this is so relevant to the conversation is that Steve had a significant health scare recently and had to change his behaviour significantly. Being a leadership and change expert ‘that should be easy'…said no-one! 

    Pete and Steve dive into the classic ways to change our behaviours and share some polar opposite distinctions about what worked and didn’t work for Steve going through his lived experience of changing his own behaviour.

    If you or anyone you know needs to change behaviour then this is a must listen.

    #77 Freedom Fridays Podcast Featuring David Sollars

    #77 Freedom Fridays Podcast Featuring David Sollars

    In this episode, Pete chats to David Sollars who is a return guest also featured in episode #46. 

    The essence of their first conversation was Dave sharing his reflections on being provoked by something on the outside that caused him to give away his power, authority and choice.

    Dave & Pete pick up the conversation nearly 2 years later to explore the journey so far and what, if any, progress has been made.

    They take a deeper dive into how Dave has reclaimed his power, authority and choice and the work required to do so.

    Working from the inside out Dave shares his journey of self-reflection and compassion and how he held the tension between endings and beginnings. Courageously he also shares what it’s like navigating the messy middle of the ‘neutral zone’ which is anything but neutral.

    If you’re in the midst of a personal or professional transformation you don’t want to miss this one.
