    There's not much worse than looking at a blank page, computer screen or canvas waiting for 'inspiration' to strike. How do we move 'beyond the blank'? What do we do when we have No Idea(s)?

    Holding Space

    Holding Space

    Many are awakening to a deep dissatisfaction with the way things were. Of having little motivation, in spite of creative projects and possibilities. An almost overwhelming sense of ‘what’s the point?’.

    The point is that we are being invited to be the change. Humanity is changing, at a deep heart and soul level. In this episode I talk about the importance of 'holding space - for yourself, first and foremost' and how finding our purpose can come out of that space.

    Choose to Begin

    Choose to Begin

    The poem, Breaking Surface by Mark Nepo, is a wonderful invitation to authenticity… to be bold, to rejoice in the beauty of being yourself. It’s also a great reminder about setting boundaries – particularly during the creative process.

    One of the things I've noticed over the years of coaching and directing, is how often we allow ourselves to be intimidated by, or perhaps unnecessarily influenced by other people's work, and more importantly other people's opinions. It's time to stand strong in our belief in ourselves, and choose to begin - whatever that work might be.

    Lead with Light

    Lead with Light

    What does it mean to lead with light?
    It means to be a voice for change through the gift of being yourself. It means to step into your full truth, your authenticity, with an open heart. And when you connect that truth and that open-heartedness you are able to see the light, not only within yourself, but in all living things.

    In the words of Aristotle, a Greek philosopher and polymath who lived and taught during the Classical period in Ancient Greece, " It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the Light." This quote has as much resonance for humanity right now as ever it did in 350 BC. It is in these times of difficulty – our darkest moments – that we must focus on finding – and leading with - light.

    Being Brave

    Being Brave

    Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful: Yourself. (Alan Alda). In this episode, Simone de Haas shares some insights and a few strategies to help you access your brave, develop curiosity and let the magic happen.

    Vulnerability: the new Visibility. Part 2

    Vulnerability is the new visibility. PART 2
    Being willing to be vulnerable looks different for everyone.

In this episode Simone de Haas shares some personal and creative insights into the power of vulnerability. This podcast was recorded in front of a live audience, as part of the Short & Sassy Podcast launch, and has been split into Part 1 & Part 2.

An Idiot On Stage ,

Perfect words, perfect length.

Your succinct podcasts have highlighted that I must guard against over empathising with my clients and lead from a position of strength and hope. Your words reminded me that I have that freedom and that it is needed in these times. The impact of this on recent conversations with clients has been enormous. Thank you.

What a gem!

I love Simone’s “short and sassy” podcast. She is real, authentic, humourous and cares and us and our journey in living a more genuine and aligned life. I’m finding that she shines her light on a myriad of topics and with that, changes the frame in which I view my own life. Love it!!

Short. Sassy. Striking.

Finally, a crisp (perfect length!) podcast to get you thinking. Fresh, concise and colourful. Simone is a master story-teller, and her insight into self-worth, self-respect and self-reflection is sensationally uplifting. Personal. Thought-provoking. Joyful. Short. Sassy. HIGHLY recommended.
