Welcome to the ‘Julie Cross’ Podcast SHOW!
What you can expect when you stop by is that you will be empowered, energised or entertained… or perhaps all three at once. This will happen through the sharing my thoughts, learning and reflections. It will happen through storytelling, sharing both my stories and the stories of others, it will also happen through interviews with people, maybe not famous people but people on the street. It is going to grow and change as we do and as I get to know what you want to hear. But what I can promise you is that no matter the content, my vision will always be take you on a ‘feeling’ journey leave you ‘feeling’ glad that you stopped by. Enjoy! And I look forward to reading your comments and thoughts.
Dancing on a shifting carpet
In these times where we are in constant change and uncertainty, we need to nurture ourselves mentally, emotionally and spiritually. https://www.juliecross/backstage
Another #thomaskentcan funny moment
Another #thomaskentcan funny moment... as we are exposed to more people and more situations I learn the conversations I still have not had with Thomas... like the fact that men marry men and women marry women, it was an interesting conversation initially!
#thomaskentcan... make me laugh
#thomaskentcan... make me laugh. You know there will always be a funny story somewhere with me!
Autism tends to have no filter so I find myself having to be very aware of what Thomas is saying and how that is coming across to his customers... oh you just have to laugh!
#thomaskentcan..what we focus on grows
#thomaskentcan... As many of you know I have helped Thomas start his own business, it has been difficult to find a job with Autism along for the ride and I was so tired of hearing everything he can't do... and in case you don't know my married name is 'Kent', so we called his business Thomas Kent Can! What we focus on expands so let us start concentrating on what he can do not just what he can't do! This is some of what we have both learn along the way.
Reframing a challenge situation
We will all have challenges to face and move through, it is helpful to notice your thinking so that you can ask yourself if it is serving you in this situation, and then remember that you can change your thoughts to improve your outlook which will empower you to take the steps necessary to move through the challenges, this is an example of how I had to do that.
Leadership Versus Management
Leadership Versus Management... what is the difference between leadership and management and can we be good at one and not the other? It times of natural disasters and major challenges 'Leadership' is always under the spotlight, and rightly so, because it is in these times a country, or a community, needs a strong leader to calm, care, comfort and empower the people to know they can handle the situation, and that as a leader they will be walking beside them every step of the way.
