Boiling Point is the podcast for the ever-evolving entrepreneur and forward-thinking movement pioneer.
In a powerful episode that starts with a tribute to our dear friend, Bruce McLeod, we tackle the issue of emotional well-being head-on. Dr Bill Howatt joins us to share how he wants to help people have no regret in life and start living well.
Over the last two years, many people have undergone career changes, most unexpectedly. Like any life changes, these have challenged some to go outside their comfort zones. But how do we measure that comfort zone idea, and what does it mean to be brave to expand past it? Our returning guest Marilyn Barefoot joins us to talk about her career changes and the experience of building her new podcast, Breaking Brave.
Hard To Be Human
Being human isn't easy. We get overwhelmed with emotions, caught up in overthinking and sometimes react a little too much. Why is it difficult to be who we are? What is it about us that makes it challenging just to be us? If you've wondered why we do what we do, think how we think, and feel what we feel, you need to listen to our conversation with Ted Cadsby.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
What emotion would you feel if someone told you you had to be in court tomorrow to solve a dispute? For most of us outside the legal profession, having to be a part of the justice system can be daunting. But today’s guest, Ron Veale, joins us to share how there’s another way, Alternative Dispute Resolution.
You may recognize the last name of our guest, who, beyond his accomplishments in politics, the law and being Chief Justice on the Supreme Court of Yukon until his recent retirement, also raised our host, Dave Veale. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, Dave’s Dad, is on the podcast! Ron shares some great judicial insights with us and a few family tales. Ron also discusses with Emily, who experienced the personal injury side of the law first hand, areas that could be improved and other methods available.
Are You Aware Of Your Emotional Intelligence?
Do you consider yourself to be intelligent? Many of us would humbly agree that we are and be able to list the skillsets where we show off those smarts. But, how emotionally intelligent are you? Do you know how to start to measure that? Do you know how you’ve built your resilience over your life? It begins with self-awareness, and someone who helps us be self-aware is our guest, Marilyn Orr.
Marilyn combines her Master’s in Counselling and all of her different Coaching certifications and years of experience to wear different hats to help her clients build their emotional intelligence, resilience and ability to become self-aware.
A Leader That Follows
Do you consider yourself a leader? Leadership is not just about one cookie-cutter ideal. Traits and characteristics support different leadership styles, and we aren’t always aware we have. While you may be comparing yourself to someone whose been placed in a leadership role, questioning why you can’t be more like them, others may be looking at your innate abilities and appreciating how you help them grow.
We welcome a colleague and coachee of Emily’s, Phil Jewell, to join her and Dave, talking about different leadership styles and how his path through being an officer in the British Army brought out his leadership skills. This conversation helps to highlight how there are different leadership journeys, and it’s more about finding the right one for you. Phil shares what he is bringing to his clients as a coach and some concepts he feels will help others create impact.
Great podcast for the business community
Greg and Dave are energetic hosts who use innovative questions to encourage guests to bring their best information about motivation to each episode. I had the honor to be a guest on Episode 147 and enjoyed sharing my experience about Authentic Negotiating.
Definitely recommend the podcast to the business community who want to learn from their peers.
