S2 E23: Masculinity As A Concept Is Questionable ft. Jindy Mann
Take a moment to think about the ideas of masculinity you have grown up with. How do they affect your life and the men around you?
Our guest today comes with a mission to break down these norms. Jindy Mann everyone. A coach and mentor. And facilitator who works with men to help them discover and express their authentic masculinity.
This conversation is for everyone, not just men. Help this episode reach the right people by leaving a rating and a review on either Spotify or Apple Podcasts. Every share counts. Every like counts.
In this episode, we explore Jindy's life, dented by the loss of his father at a tender age, and how it shaped his perception of what it means to be a man in a dual-patriarchal world.
As you listen, think about the assumptions you've carried about your own masculinity or that of the men around you. What does it truly mean to be a man in today's world, and how can we redefine those notions for a more fulfilling life?
We humans are complex and messy creatures. We crave certainty in the form of patterns and neatly defined categories just to make sense of this world. And change is a threat to that.
If you're already living by the definitions of others, how would you define life for yourself?
Jindy's story is another inspiring example where individuals have boldly navigated the turbulent waters to reach their true potential, and to be their authentic selves.
Meet Jindy Live at the coaching conclave with 50+ pioneers and thought leaders who are coming together to talk about Coaching To Unleash Human Potential. The tickets are available at 30% discount on www.thecoachingconclave.com.
S2 E22: Visionaries Are Damaged People Ft. Justin Breen
Are visionaries born?
Are they built?
Can any everyday Joe or Jane become a visionary?
That's the curveball I throw Justin right off the bat. His answer? Well, Justin's got a thing or two to say about that.
Justin is not your typical PR guy. He is a visionary who sees things differently and helps others do the same. He has a knack for finding and telling stories that resonate with the media and the masses. He has worked with some of the most influential people in the world, from billionaires to celebrities to world changers.
He's not talking about the Steve Jobs and Richard Bransons of the world – he's tipping his hat to folks who are the unsung heroes who redefine what it means to chase a vision.
And if I have you here, please take a moment to follow this podcast on Apple or Spotify. As I always say I love reading your reviews. So please drop a feedback, a rating and review. Anything that helps us become better.
So yeah, back to Justin! Can we really label everyone who follows a vision as a visionary? I mean, doesn't that water down the term?
Well for all those questions we have Justin here.

Learn how coaching plays a pivotal role in guiding individuals beyond the confines of perception management, allowing them to focus on the contributions they are truly capable of making.
S2 E19: Your Trauma Is NOT Entirely Yours with Raj Sisodia
Not all stories are true.
Not all stories are helpful. Not all stories are healthy.
Some stories are distorted, some stories are incomplete, some stories are harmful. Some stories are holding us back, some stories are hurting us, some stories are killing us.
In this episode, Raj Sisodia and I confront the stories that we have been telling ourselves about life and work. He reveals the traumas that he have experienced and inherited, and how it shaped his choices and actions.
He does not do this to indulge in self-pity or to blame others. He did this to heal himself and to heal others. He did this to create a new story, a story of compassion and wisdom, a story of purpose and meaning, a story of hope and joy.
This episode is not for the faint of heart.
It is for those who dare to look at themselves and the world with honesty and courage. It is for those who want to make a difference, not only in business, but in life.
This episode is for you.
