    #102 - Living a Beautiful Life with Jan and Chip Chipman

    #102 - Living a Beautiful Life with Jan and Chip Chipman

    Welcome to the podcast. I’m delighted to present this episode, “Living a Beautiful Life” with Jan and Chip Chipman. The theme for the ClarityLive conference it was recorded at was “How to make 2022 your most beautiful year yet” and it was really lovely. We had people joining us from all around the world, and there was a great sense of community, with lots of profound realisations. 
     
    And one of the highlights of the weekend was my session with my dear friends, mentors, colleagues and collaborators, Jan and Chip Chipman. Jan, Chip and I met nearly 13 years ago and have been friends ever since. We’ve run retreats together in the Canary Islands and mainland Spain. They spent years being mentored by Sydney Banks, and one of the things you’re going to love about this conversation is the feeling they bring. Chip also tells me favourite Syd Banks story in this session, so I hope you enjoy that too.
     
    Just before we get to that, I wanted to mention that the doors are about to close for the final intake of  our flagship Clarity Certification Training programme. I say ‘final’ because as you may have heard, I’ve decided to stop all business activities except for delivering programmes that I already have in the calendar for 2022. And I’m doing this so I have the time to write the second edition of my book CLARITY, and to create the space for what’s going to come next. You know, when I first came to the principles, it was relatively unknown, and very few people knew how to share this understanding with others. And it was clear to me that we needed a cadre of highly-skilled coaches, trainers and change-workers who could share this understanding and have a big impact with their clients. 
     
    Ten years on, and we’ve trained over 300 Clarity Coaches and I couldn’t be more delighted. We now have that cadre of highly-skilled people with a deep understanding in place. Now it’s time to get these principles out into the world in a bigger way, and I need the space to do that, so… 
     
    This is the last time I’m going to be delivering Clarity Certification Training. 30 of the 36 places are now taken, so there are 6 places left as I speak. And I’m really looking for leaders who want to take this understanding out into the world at a time when there’s never been a greater need for it. And for the first time ever, I’ve added a massive bonus package worth over £13,000, including the chance to sit in on a 3-day coaching intensive with a corporate client, later this year.
     
    And Jan and Chip Chipman are two of the teachers who do Masterclasses on the CCT programme, as well as mentoring our Advanced Clarity Coaches. 
     
    So if you want to join me for the last ever Clarity Certification Training, go to www.JamieSmart.com/coach
     
    So now to the episode.

    #101 - Burning It All Down with Charlie Madison

    #101 - Burning It All Down with Charlie Madison

    I’m really happy to share this episode with you, with the unusual title of ‘Burning It All Down’, because it’s a recording from the ClarityLive! event we held earlier this month. The theme for the event was “How to make 2022 your most beautiful year yet” and it was really lovely. We had people joining us from all around the world, and there was a great sense of community, with lots of profound realisations. And one of the things we did was I had ‘fireside chat’ conversations with Certified Clarity Coaches who’ve been having a big impact in the world, and I picked their brains about what it means to live a beautiful life, and how this understanding has helped them do exactly that. And my idea for this was that we would be talking shop; the kind of conversation that I have with my colleagues over a coffee, and that most people never get to hear. So in this podcast, you’re going to be hearing one of those, a conversation I had with business owner & entrepreneur Charlie Madison. 
     
    Just before we get to that, I wanted to mention that the doors are now open for the final intake of our flagship Clarity Certification Training programme. I say ‘final’ because as you may have heard, I’ve decided to stop all business activities except for delivering programmes that I already have on the calendar.

    This is the last time I’m going to be delivering Clarity Certification Training. 26 of the 36 places are now taken, so there are 10 places left as I speak. And I’m really looking for leaders who want to take this understanding out into the world at a time when there’s never been a greater need for it. And for the first time ever, I’ve added a massive bonus package worth over £13,000, including the chance to sit in on a 3-day coaching intensive with a corporate client, later this year.
     
    And we have an EarlyBird price so you can save up to £1,500 when you book your place by Monday, January 24th. Just go to www.JamieSmart.com/coach to learn more.
     
    And Clarity Certification Training is the programme Charlie did a couple of years ago when he was earlier in his journey. So now to the episode.

    #099 - The Power of Precision with Mamoon Yusaf

    I’ve called this episode, “The Power of Precision”, and I’m excited to share this episode with you because it’s a recording from the ClarityLive! event we held, just last weekend. The theme for the event was “How to make 2022 your most beautiful year yet” and it was really terrific. We had people joining us from all around the world, and there was a lovely sense of community, with lots of profound insights. And one of the things we did was I had ‘fireside chat’ conversations with Certified Clarity Coaches who have been having a big impact in the world, and I picked their brains about what it means to live a beautiful life, and how this understanding has helped them do that.

    #098 - The 3 Principles at work: Louise O'Dalaigh

    #098 - The 3 Principles at work: Louise O'Dalaigh

    I’m Jamie Smart - welcome to the podcast. In this episode you’re going to be hearing something I’m very happy to share with you. It’s the recording of a conversation I had with Clarity Coach Louise O’Dalaigh at the last ClarityLive event a few months ago. Louise is trained as a nurse and has spent the last 30 years working in the healthcare field. Her current role is as a Quality Improvement Lead for an NHS organisation with over 10,000 staff. So it was a real treat to be able to have one of my ‘fireside chat’ conversations with her and find out the kind of difference the principles understanding is making in her life and in her organisation.
     
    Just before we get to that, a bit of housekeeping. I’m working on the second edition of my book, CLARITY, and I had a realisation. I realised that just as the release of CLARITY planted a seed that grew into everything I’ve been doing for the past 10 years, I now want to create the space for the seeds I’ll be planting with the second edition.
    So I’ve made a decision.
    Between now and July 2022, I’m stopping all business activities except the delivery of the programmes that are already in the calendar for 2022.
    I have the strong sense that there’s something new getting ready to emerge, and I want to create room for it.
    This means that the Clarity Certification Training I do starting at the end of this month - January 2022 may be the last one I ever do (or at least the last one I do in its current form). 
    It seems to me that the world has never had a greater need for this understanding, and that conditions have never been better to share it as widely as possible. In fact, the technologies that are playing a part in creating this crisis may also have the capacity to play a part in its solution.
    I don’t know what part I’m going to play in all of this.  
    What I do know is that I’m interested in exploring emerging technologies and new models to align communities as we take this understanding out into the world in a brand new form. 
    To the people who have been through (or are preparing to go through) Clarity Certification Training, you’re not just early adopters; you’re trailblazers, and I’m grateful to be on the journey with you.
    In Syd Banks’ final talk, “The Ultimate Answer”, he says that when this gets out into the world, “literally, it will help millions of people.”
    The more I’ve learned from Syd’s work, the more I’ve learned to take him literally. And I think it might just be time.
    So, there are 11 places left on the Clarity Certification Training programme, and I’ve decided to really push the boat out, and added some extra bonuses including the chance to sit in on a live 1:1 coaching intensive. If you want to find out more, just go to www.JamieSmart.com/coach that’s www.JamieSmart.com/coach 
     
    So now to the episode.

    #097 - Freedom, Authoritarianism & True Identity - A conversation with Garret Kramer

    #097 - Freedom, Authoritarianism & True Identity - A conversation with Garret Kramer

    I’m Jamie Smart. Welcome to the podcast. 
     
    The recording you’re about to hear is a conversation with my dear friend and colleague Garret Kramer on the state of the world today.
     
    It often seems to me like we’re living in the pages of a Marvel comic, and a lot has changed since Garret & I last spoke together in public, so it seemed like a good time to catch up.
     
    We had a great conversation, and we covered topics as wide-ranging as the 3 principles, authoritarianism, true identity, various mandates and much more.
     
    Just before we get to that, I wanted to mention that the doors are now open for the January 2022 intake of our flagship Clarity Certification Training programme. 
     
    Clarity Certification has recently been accredited by the International Coaching Federation (the ICF) as a provider of Continuous Coach Education, so if you’re already an ICF-certified coach, you can use the programme to earn CCE units. Either way, you can take part in CCT with full confidence that the programme is fully accredited by the ICF as a Continuous Coaching Education provider. And you can save up to £2000 when you book your place by the end of November. Just go to www.JamieSmart.com/coach.
     
    So now to the episode.
