    Season 5 Ep. 4 Relieving Stress Using SBNRR - Stop Breathe Notice Reflect Respond

    Is stress a good thing or dreadful thing? It is a question of whether you have more pressure than resources to deal with it. In this episode, I will give you a simple mindfulness exercise to relieve stress – with SBNRR or Stop, Breathe, Notice, Reflect, Respond. I want you to integrate this practice with your everyday routine.  
    Pick an activity today that has the potential to trigger you or cause you stress. Perhaps it’s a commute to work, or a particular job or activity, or possibly an interaction with a difficult person. Try it and let me know how it worked out for you, by writing to me on shivraj@brevis.in

    Hi, I’m Shivraj Parshad, a Communication and Executive Coach, Trainer, Podcaster & Presenter. And more recently a practitioner of mindfulness which has an enormous impact on how we communicate with ourselves and others.

    Season 5 Ep 1. Mindful Communication - A Guided Meditation to Speak Empathetically

    Season 5 Ep 1. Mindful Communication - A Guided Meditation to Speak Empathetically

    Real life involves speaking and communicating every day. Today I want to talk you through a brief meditation practice to just train yourself to make mindful communication a habit. The goal here is to get you to speak mindfully. Taking note of the way you speak and how it impacts others. This means removing unnecessary gossip, unkind and divisive words.
    I would recommend listening to this episode everyday for at least 5 days and let me know how it impacts the way you speak and your relationships with others.

    Ep 14. Break the Chain of Exclusion and Discrimination with Aparna Mittal, Founder, Samana Centre

    Ep 14. Break the Chain of Exclusion and Discrimination with Aparna Mittal, Founder, Samana Centre

    June was Pride month with the corporate spotlight on LGBTQ+ inclusion. But what about the remaining 11 months? Get your pens and papers ready for this crucial conversation with Aparna Mittal, Founder of Samāna Centre for Gender, Policy and Law. She addresses very existential questions:  Do issues of  differences like gender, sexuality, other identities of caste, creed, class and so on and so forth, not matter? What are the implications of overlooking them in our dynamic and diverse workforce? Is it only about the business bottom-line or more?

    Aparna tells us how she works with corporate, non-corporate entities and leaders to get them to introspect on what Diversity, Inclusion and Equity (DI&E) actually entails. She breaks it down not just in conceptual and compliance terms but also what it means on the ground for businesses who plan to be successful and stick around. 

    What did you think of this conversation? I'd love to know. Just email me at shivraj@brevis.in.
    You can also let me know if there is someone you'd like featured on my podcast by sending me a voice ?on WhatsApp to +919625475442 or email Shivraj@brevis.in.
