The Spirit Addict - Tom Mebert
Tom Mebert returns to be with us again on UrStoria (see Episode 3 “Be Your Authentic Self”). Tom’s back to take us through all of the events of late that have made him even more passionate about spirituality. We discuss how professionals who want to develop and be successful in their careers can negotiate and balance the dichotomy between spirituality and the workplace. Are they so different? Do you need to give up one for the other?

Jenn Wegrzyn hosts UrStoria - a podcast that uses story to connect, entertain and inform...Gut instinct vs Over-analysis - how much analysis is too much?

UrStoria - Episode 11 - Professional Development: Reinvention or Atrophy - Your Choice
In this episode, the choice is simple, we can reinvent or we can atrophy…which do you choose? Dean McAlister discusses why, if Professional Development is so important and can be linked to higher profit margins, does it get swept under the rug for more pressing priorities? We speak about looking at leadership and development with the lens of “who” we want to be and not “what” we want to be.
