    Raj Sisodia explores his journey to Awaken, finding purpose and making a global impact

    Raj Sisodia explores his journey to Awaken, finding purpose and making a global impact

    What makes you who you are? 
    I know that’s a huge, complex question. However, if you think about it – there would have been a few pivotal moments, relationships and possibly conversations that set you on the path you’re on today.
    Beyond the path, those moments would have also laid the wiring for how you now react, decide and decode the world around you. Laying the foundations for how you show up in every situation, relationship, and moment of your life.
    Today’s conversation is a little different to usual, as it has a very autobiographical feel. 
    However, although this episode is all about my guest’s lifelong journey, leading to the completion of his latest book, the lessons learnt along the way are universal. Offering a roadmap for anyone who wants to examine and reimagine their life - at whatever age.

    Today’s Guest My guest is a friend of the show - Raj Sisodia. Raj is an acclaimed thought leader, speaker and author. Co-founder of the Conscious Capitalism movement, Raj has written a number of the core texts from that field. Including ‘Firms of Endearment’, ‘Conscious Capitalism’, ‘Everybody Matters’ with past guest and incredible human being Bob Chapman and ‘The Healing Organisation’.
    His latest book ‘Awaken: The Path to Purpose, Inner Peace and Healing’ is a guide to leading a life of meaning, purpose and fulfillment. Containing practical advice on how to know yourself, love yourself, be yourself and express yourself from a place of choice – rather than a place of habit. 
    This is Raj’s second time on the podcast, the first time we dove into his journey starting and leading the Conscious Capitalism movement. This time we go deeper into the moments, events and experiences that led to who he became – and who he chooses to become in this next chapter of his life. 
    LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rajendrasisodia/
    Twitter: @RajSisodiaCC 

    You’ll LearnRaj’s definition of what it means to ‘awaken’. Including the acronym ‘LIST’ which he now uses as a roadmap for all his decisions. LIST standing for: Love, Innocence, Simplicity and Truth. His journey of self-discovery – and the strength it takes to dismantle the parts of our lives and personalities that are no longer working. How to find the courage to step back when things don’t feel right and the curiosity to ask: ‘Could there be a better way?’ Finally, why our core childhood memories often hold the key to what we most need to re-examine in order to move forward.
    A couple of quick notes, this episode contains mention and memories of violence and abuse. As always, I leave it to your instincts to decide what’s healthy for you and any listening ears around you.

    Kemi Nekvapil on the true meaning of power and how to live and lead without apology

    Kemi Nekvapil on the true meaning of power and how to live and lead without apology

    When you hear the word ‘power’, what first springs to mind? 
    Do you immediately think of its absence, the moments you felt ‘power-less’ – or the moments you showed up as the fullest version of yourself?
    Is ‘power’ a word or sensation that feels like it belongs to you? Or is it a word that usually belongs to someone else?
    My guest today wants to redefine how we think, approach and own the word ‘power’ in our lives. 
    Today’s Guest Kemi Nekvapil is one of Australia’s leading coaches for female executives and entrepreneurs. She describes her life’s work as being to ‘empower women to live and lead without apology’. 
    Kemi is a certified facilitator for Brenè Brown’s ‘Dare To Lead’ program, and also a facilitator for The Hunger Project Australia which works with communities to enable them to realize a future free from hunger and poverty. 
    She is also a highly sought after international speaker and author who has just published her latest book: ‘Power; A woman’s guide to living and leading without apology’. The book looks at how to navigate the inevitable challenges we face from a place of unapologetic power – in order to show up at the highest possible level. 
    Instagram: @keminekvapil
    Linked In: https://www.linkedin.com/in/kemi-nekvapil-58000027/

    You’ll LearnThe true meaning of the word power, and how it’s our definitions of the word – rather than our own innate strength – that keeps us small.What stops us from stepping into our power. Including all the ways we give our power away, in order to feel a sense of safety and belonging.  The right questions to ask to reclaim your sense of power. In particular, when faced with people and situations that would usually make us shrink.Why real power is often found in the quiet moments, the small decisions, the micro-choices – rather than the big grand gestures.Finally, how to access your intuition and realize that the greatest power comes from outwardly trusting your inner voice. For me, the word ‘power’ has shifted in meaning, particularly over the last few years. Previously it had the energy of pushing. Building, creating, showing up, using your voice – changing what needs to be changed. Forcing where necessary. 
    Yet now, largely thanks to this podcast. That’s fundamentally shifted.
    Now when I think about the word ‘power’, when I embody it, when I witness it - the feeling is one of ‘pulling’. Showing up and holding yourself with such clarity, such intention, such gravity. That the right people and situations are quite literally pulled towards you. That to me is real power.

    Phill Nosworthy on clarity, redefining imposter syndrome and moving at the speed of wisdom

    Phill Nosworthy on clarity, redefining imposter syndrome and moving at the speed of wisdom

    Hands up who’s busy? Busy with work, life, kids, family, businesses, side hustles, resting (now when did that become a task) and everything in between. 
    The reason many of us are so busy, constantly moving and thinking at 100mph is I believe, in its most positive sense, because we want to get it right. 
    We want to be the best we can be in every aspect of our life. Maybe that’s achieving mastery in our field. Maybe it’s being the best leader or parent we can be - or maybe it’s just not waking up one morning and realizing a window of opportunity has passed us by.
    Nobody gets the results, impact, influence or relationships they want without giving it 110%.
    But what if we’re actually too busy to be brilliant? 
    What if by slowing down, not hiding in the story of the ‘busyness’ of our lives, we could step back and reclaim the power we have to create the impact we want. 
    This is the mindset and approach that runs through the entirety of my conversation with today’s guest on the podcast - and no matter which way our conversation turned - every road seemed to lead us right back to that place.
    Today’s Guest Phill Nosworthy is a speaker, author and educator specializing in leadership, personal mastery and high performance. 
    Having spoken around the world over 2000+ times to companies including Microsoft and Universal Music. Phill is also the founder and managing director of Switch L+D; a learning and development company that advises and coaches some of the planet's foremost CEO’s, executives, athletes and entertainers.
    I also know him as one of the most conscious and intentional leaders, husbands, fathers and humans that I have had the pleasure of knowing for more years than I can count.
    LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/phillnosworthy/
    Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/phillnosworthy/

    You’ll LearnImposter syndrome - how to define it and how to tackle it. Honestly Phill has one of the most unique takes on this that I have found, his insights into this one aspect are worth the price of entry alone.The importance of checking in with yourself as you build your influence, specifically what he calls micro check-ins OR ROC’ing - R: relax, O: open up, C:connect. The 1%ers of impact - Simple, practical strategies and improvements you can make, rather than either postponing or tripping up on the big strides. Finally, the importance of ‘prescription vs description’ in leadership, I’ll leave that one there – but suffice to say this one stuck with me in how I both lead and show up as a parent since this conversation.

    Paul Zak returns to unpack the science of Immersion and how to cultivate happiness

    Paul Zak returns to unpack the science of Immersion and how to cultivate happiness

    Do you struggle to immerse yourself in something (anything) without a buzz, ding or vibration pulling you out of your train of thought? 
    If we struggle to pay attention to even the things we care about - how as influencers, leaders and communicators - can we cut through long enough to create real and lasting impact.

    Today’s Guest Paul Zak is a neuroscientist, public speaker and author who has spent the last two decades looking into what our brains crave - and how we can use those cravings to build experiences that actually change our minds. 
    Paul is a Professor of Economics, Psychology and Management at Claremont Graduate University. His TED Talk ‘Trust, morality and oxytocin’ has had almost 2 million views and he has been invited to speak at NATO Supreme HeadQuarters, Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Harvard University to name but a few. 
    His most recent book: ‘Immersion: The Science of the Extraordinary and the Source of Happiness’, is based on 20 years of research into exactly why our brains hunt for the extraordinary - and how we can use this knowledge to create amazing experiences for our customers, employees and audiences.
    LinkedIn : https://www.linkedin.com/in/paul-zak-91123510/

    You’ll LearnWhy understanding what makes an Immersive experience holds the key to designing messages, movements and marketing that significantly changes people’s behavior.The five essential steps of persuasion. Including how to ‘Open Hot’ by starting any piece of persuasive communication in a way that literally changes the blood chemistry of your audience.Why ‘fun’ is always a better motivator than ‘fear’. Although fear may motivate us in the short term, it’s fun (or positive emotion) that continues to motivate long after the fear has disappeared.Finally, how to use the science of Immersion to lead a better, deeper and more enriching life - and why this has become Paul’s dedicated focus for the next 10 years. 
    This is Paul’s second time on the podcast. Since the first I’ve enjoyed many email conversations together on how the science he pioneered has changed the lives – and business outcomes – of tens of thousands of people across the world.
    However, where our connection became deeper, is our shared passion for what science and technology can do to help us pause. 
    Paul’s work is a powerful beacon of light in that direction.

    Michael McQueen on why we are MindStuck and mastering the art of changing minds

    Michael McQueen on why we are MindStuck and mastering the art of changing minds

    Would you consider yourself to be stubborn? Do you bristle at the thought of change and dig your heels in even when presented with undeniable logic? 
    For most of us our instinct is to probably answer ‘no’ to that question.
    It’s everyone else that’s stubborn right? 
    It’s the people on the internet who are blatantly wrong in their points of view. The family member who won’t shift position, regardless of how much evidence you present them with. The colleague that just can’t let go of how it ‘used to be’ and embrace the only logical path forward.
    Or maybe… in order to survive in an age of more information, disruption, ideas, opinions, facts, news, and fake news than we have ever had to process - we’ve ALL become more entrenched and stubborn in our thinking. Simply as a way to survive.
    My guest today believes that not only are we more MindStuck than ever before - but the process of how we go about changing minds – including our own – has to change. 

    Today’s Guest Michael McQueen is a multi-award winning speaker, trend forecaster and best-selling author of nine books. Having helped some of the world’s most successful brands like Pepsi, Mastercard, BP and Cisco navigate disruption and lead in times of extreme change.
    He has also just released his latest book ‘Mindstuck: Mastering the art of changing minds’ which completely flips on its head so much of what we assume to be true about exactly how we influence, in a world where silos and stubbornness are now the norm. 
    LinkedIn : https://www.linkedin.com/in/michaelmcqueen1/

    You’ll LearnWhy we are all more stubborn and MindStuck than ever before - and how accepting that fact opens up a whole new toolkit of influence.The concept of the ‘inquiring mind’ vs the ‘instinctive mind’ – and why we currently spend more than 40% of our time trying to influence the wrong one. Why logic isn’t enough and, in order to influence at the highest level, we need to take a whole different approach to persuasion.The paradox of choice (this one blew my mind) and why giving people the opportunity to opt-out, rather than convincing them to opt-in - almost guarantees they will say yes. Finally, five counter-intuitive strategies to move people from MindStuck to open to new ideas. Including why real trust and persuasion always begins with first having the courage to be wrong.

    Lisa Bragg on purposeful self promotion, loosing the fear and the power of picking yourself

    Lisa Bragg on purposeful self promotion, loosing the fear and the power of picking yourself

    How do you feel about the word ‘bragging’? 
    Does it make you squirm and immediately want to bolt away from the spotlight – or excited about an opportunity to share your success?
    When a colleague, friend or co-worker starts to say things that sound like bragging - does it rub you up the wrong way? Or do you start feeling inspired and curious about how you could get similar results? 
    My guest today thinks we all need to become better braggers. 
    Which as someone who started life as a good British girl, raised to avoid phrases like ‘Too big for your boots’ and the cardinal sin of life becoming ‘Full of yourself’. Had me beginning this conversation already in a full body sweat.
    Today’s Guest Lisa Bragg is an author, speaker and advisor helping people self-promote in a more authentic and un-obnoxious way. 
    She is the founder of MediaFace, a Toronto-based content and consulting firm and author of: ‘Bragging Rights; How To Talk about Your Work Using Purposeful Self-Promotion’. A book that digs into the art of bragging and reveals that people really DO want to hear about our success. 
    That actually, when we share our wins and achievements, not only does it raise the bar on what’s possible for the people around us – it creates a field that immediately starts to attract even greater levels of success and opportunity.
    That’s if we know how to do it right.
    LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/lisabragg
    Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatlisabragg
    Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ThatLisaBragg/ 

    You’ll LearnWhy (unlike the high school sports team) we need to learn to pick ourselves - rather than sitting on the sidelines waiting to be picked. How to move from awkward ‘self promotion’ to authentic ‘purposeful promotion’ - and the right questions to ask to unpack exactly what to say.The power of focusing on what makes you ‘remarkable’ i.e. literally worth ‘remarking’ upon. Including the key questions to help you realize exactly how remarkable you are. The powerful equation of ‘Fear + 10%’. I love this, basically when you face something or someone that makes you want to back down, how to lean in just a little bit further.Finally, why our perceptions of words like ‘bragging’ and self-promotion – even down to the language we use - rob us of way too many brilliant people and ideas at a time when we need them the most.

An Incredible (and deeper) look at influence

What I like so much about this stuff is that the direction that the podcast attacks this huge topic of 'influence' from is not the normal, perfect world rhetoric that clutters social media.

It's real, it's deep, & it is still very practical. Highly recommend if you're tired of hearing people beat the same, standard drum.

Angus Hervey ,

Cannot recommend this enough

It’s very unusual for me to write a review for anything online - there’s just too much content out there and not enough time! I am making a rare exception for this podcast though because it’s that good. Julie is the real deal, a thoughtful, kind and curious host who is also a genuine master of her art, with a deep and profound understanding of what it takes for human beings to make a genuine impact.

The quality of the guests never fails to amaze me - people from every profession, background and walk of life, and every episode has at least one piece of gold, an idea or a principle or even just a turn of phrase that stays with you for months and sometimes years afterwards. If you’re at all interested in making a dent for good in the universe then you need to be listening to this podcast, now! Cannot recommend it highly enough.

BrookeFlint ,

I love this podcast

I saw Julie speak at a recent event and instantly my ears pricked up. Finally, I had heard something unique that spoke to me, something I’d been searching for. What I now realise is that Julie Masters is a translator of influence when she speaks to her incredible line up of guests, I listen with every cell of my being…it truly is the art of influence in action. Well done a superb podcast & I feel more inspired for listening…
