This podcast is the audio-version of all things connected the organization and movement called One Solution. We believe that there is a simple solution to many of the world’s most challenging and persistent problems. That solution is an understanding of how all global challenges originate in the human mind and can be directly addressed in the human mind. Change the thinking that drives global issues, and we can actually begin to solve our challenges, rather than dealing with the symptoms.
Olympic athletes, Social Impact and Healing our planet with Andrew Moss
In this episode, we talk with Andrew Moss and his story from being a kid that liked to bring people together to later making that his career. This sounds like a simple and linear path, but like most stories, it's more about the challenges we faced, and the insights we had on the way that's important. And Andrew's life and career is example of that. His inspiration to unlock the dormant potential we all have inside with his clients came from struggling with not seeing his own. His ability to really see someone for who they are coming from experiencing how it was to truly be seen by his own coach and mentor. His focus on helping others came from realizing and looking honestly at how much he was thinking about himself. Join us in exploring the link between Olympic athletes, social impact leaders, rethinking the student experience and potential, and healing our planet! We hope you find Andrew as inspiring as we do!!
Here's a favorite quote from the podcast:
"We need to connect people from all diverse sets of backgrounds and human experiences into a conversation about what the human experience is all about. What it's been for them, and what it's been for everybody else because THAT'S what is going to bring humanity back together and heal the planet - understanding that we're all the same."
We explore topics like:
How to bring the best out of people.
Uncovering what you have inside instead of teaching information
Unlocking what we are not seeing that stops us from being who we are
The link between Olympic athletes and doing good in the world.
Going beyond doing what you're supposed to do, and finding what really matters to you
Going from trying to "be someone" to listen to your internal wisdom.
How even his body transformed from letting go of stress and pressure.
Seeing neutrally what we are creating in our life, without judging it.
And much more!

More about Andrew:
My professional career has provided many unique experiences, all of which my clients benefit from. I chose to be a coach from the very start of my career and have never looked back. For the first two decades, I was in the high-performance sports world starting out as a coach working with elite athletes including Olympic and World Champions and from there I moved into roles coaching other coaches and talent development experts across a range of Olympic sports.
In 2016 I attended a performance conference in New York City and heard top talent experts from many different contexts, business, arts, education, medicine, and sport, all speaking on the same topic and I realized that my gift for helping athletes see something new in themselves was applicable to any group of people with ambition, work ethic and a desire to realize their own most inspiring dreams.
That insight led me to begin my current efforts in private coaching where I work with talented and driven people with big dreams and a feeling of frustration about the state of the world, and determination to do something about it.
Personally, I am a father to four daughters and have learned so much from them; I’m passionate about social issues, especially those of Indigenous people in Canada. In 2019, I spent two and half weeks hiking over 600km across northern Canada in memory of the death of a young indigenous boy in the 1960’s who was trying to escape from a residential school and return to his family. I wrote a post about this experience here. I’m also an avid sailor and skier and love to be in nature - you can catch my morning sunrise walks on my Instagram

Change in the Unknown Part 1 with Dajohn White
This interview series is the audio version of the One Solution Deep Dive series, where we explored how to create change in the unknown. It was originally a 4-hour long conversation with different guests, and this podcast series will highlight each interview one at a time.
This first interview is with Dajohn White, Co-founder and CEO of the Rebels for Peace.
If you wish to be part of these interviews LIVE, make sure you subscribe on youtube and Facebook, or newsletter.
The Rebels for Peace and Brian Gleason
In today's episode, we have a beautiful conversation between Dajohn White and Prince Jimmar from the Rebels for Peace in Chicago and Brian Gleason, an LA-based therapist who's been working with youth for over 20 years. We're excited about this one, as it is really candid conversation between people from different backgrounds, ages, and upbringing that discussed our common humanity, connection, and resilience. It shows how we can connect in both joy and in struggle.
Brian brings his own beautiful and personal story of learning how to accept himself fully and how the struggles he had as a young kid was what later drew him to working with young people and supporting them - and in the end making it his lifes work. The Rebels for Peace share from their perspective of growing up as a young person in South-side Chicago and how that experience inspired them to now be leaders of youth. We love how these seemingly different people can have the same story and the metaphor that can be for mending a divided society.
IOS-Webinar 3: Bringing it all together with Q/A
PS! We are sorry to say that the event we are referring to in this webinar was canceled due to the recent pandemic, but we hope to set up a new one very soon. If you're interested in the event or have any questions or want to get involved with the IOS collective, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
In our final webinar in our webinar series with the IOS collective, it's all about the participants. We want to highlight the simplicity of the change all of us can do
both inside ourselves and in relation to the world. We got some great questions regarding addictions, what's needed to get started helping people, the fears we are up against,
and sharing experiences working in schools, prisons, and communities.
We hope after these 3 webinars you are closer to see our common humanity and connection, and how seeing more of that is the key to be helping facilitate change
anywhere, anytime with anyone.
Thank you so much for your participation.
The IOS Collective.
IOS-Webinar 2: Stories of transformation
This is the second webinar in the 3 part series on Collective Community Change we did with the IOS Collective.
In this webinar we dove deeper into the stories of change we've seen in our work, and how those stories can be scaled and happen to anyone.
We firmly believe that change is something that is possible for everyone, and that a new thought and a new life is just around the corner. We've seen that no matter
the circumstance, backround, situation or past experiences, we can all shift. And what we're looking for is already inside of us, it's not something we have to manufacture.
As with these webinars you will hear a wide range of stories, but we invite you too see beyond the personal and find what is universal and true for everyone.
See you on the next one!
One Solution Team and the IOS Collective.
