    Navigating The Election with Authenticity

    Navigating The Election with Authenticity

    We’re less than two weeks away from the election here in the United States, and it’s hard not to be aware of the intensity and importance of it.  For a number of reasons, I’ve been feeling scared - anxious to see how it all plays out and nervous about the outcome.  On this episode, I talk about my personal feelings about the election and also about some of the challenges we face in our relationships with people who may be voting for a different candidate than we are.  I offer some ideas for how we can navigate these challenges before and after the election.  I also talk about how we can take positive actions before the election, and then focus on healing and coming together after it’s over.

    The Challenge and Importance of Empathy Right Now

    The Challenge and Importance of Empathy Right Now

    With so much going on these days, many of us are feeling stressed, weary, and burned out.  What most of us need, as much as almost anything right now, is empathy.  However, given all that is going on, there seems to be an understandable empathy deficit within many teams, families, and relationships.  On this episode, I talk about why empathy is both so important during this difficult time and why it is also incredibly challenging.  Additionally, we discuss some specific things you can do to both give and receive more empathy these days, so that you can care for yourself and those around you most effectively.

    You’re Not Crazy, This is Crazy

    You’re Not Crazy, This is Crazy

    Things have been and continue to be crazy right now in our country and our world...and they seem to be getting crazier by the day.  In the midst of all that is going on, it is completely understandable to feel overwhelmed, outraged, and crazy ourselves.  However, it’s important to remember that we’re not crazy, we’re just living in crazy times.  On this episode, I talk about some of the ridiculous and upsetting events of the past few weeks and how we can stay engaged in all that is happening, without making ourselves insane in the process.

    Moment By Moment

    Moment By Moment

    Things continue to be incredibly intense in our country and our world these days.  At times, like last night as I watched the first Presidential debate, I find myself feeling sad, angry, and scared - wondering how we’re going to make our way through this dark period.  At the same time, I’m often reminded of how strong and resilient we are as human beings.  The only place we can find peace and tap into our power is in the present moment.  As challenging as this can be in general, and especially right now, it’s essential for us to operate moment by moment.

    Turn Your Outrage Into Action

    Turn Your Outrage Into Action

    If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been feeling outraged in recent days, weeks, and months, with all of the traumatizing things happening in our country and our world.  While this outrage is understandable and normal right now, it’s also volatile.  Instead of either avoiding our outrage or using it in damaging ways, we have the opportunity to turn it into positive action.  I imagine you’re probably also feeling exhausted, as am I.  However, if we’re willing to dig deep, step up, and act with courage and commitment, we can have a real impact on this election, and on the future of our country and our world.  We can’t control the outcome, but we can control our attitude and our effort...and we can leave it all on the field over these next 40 days.

    The country and the world lost a significant and legendary leader this past Friday with the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG).  My guest today, Susan B.

Fantastic podcast!!

Mike has a very charming voice to listen to. He is very down to earth, it is as if you were listening to a ‘gentle giant’. The insights Mike shares regarding his life past and current seem like he is talking to you about your very own life. Mike mentions the work of Brene’ Brown ....if you like Brene you will love Mike!!

Thanks Mike for sharing your gift with the world. Especially, during these challenging times of our world today.

Journey Well!
Lisa
