    The Four Layers of Self-Knowledge

    The Four Layers of Self-Knowledge

    EPISODE 62                 

    In this final episode of the series on interior life and leadership, I discuss four distinct and deepening layers of knowing ourselves.

    As interior pilgrims we need to understand why self-knowledge needs to go beyond knowing about ourselves to learning how to attune to our inner selves and knowing how to lead ourselves into unity and wholeness.

    - Spend some time thinking how you can help yourself grow a little bit more in self-knowledge in that particular layer.

    Self-Leadership: Scripts, Temperament & Motivational Design

    Self-Leadership: Scripts, Temperament & Motivational Design

    EPISODE 61                 

    What does it look like to use what we learn about our scripts, temperament and motivational design to help us show up as our best and also most authentic selves? 

    In this episode I illustrate what this process can be like in concrete terms using my own experience and journey as an example. I share how growing in self-acceptance, becoming more aware of my scripts and learning about my temperament and motivational design through the Myers-Briggs (MBTI Step II®) and Motivation Code (MCODE®) instruments helped me lead myself into greater authenticity and effectiveness.

    Leveraging our Gifts and Honouring our Limits in Leadership

    Leveraging our Gifts and Honouring our Limits in Leadership

    EPISODE 60               

    How can we bring the best that we can offer as a leader through leveraging our areas of giftedness and honouring our limits? What can we do to increase our effectiveness and impact without burning out and without needing to be inauthentic? Sometimes it's not what we have or don't have, but knowing HOW to manage and use what we have that makes all the difference.

    In this episode I discuss how we can grow in self-awareness about our gifts and our limits as well as four ways we can use that awareness to be more effective and authentic in our leadership.

    Dealing with Our Insecurities in Leadership

    Dealing with Our Insecurities in Leadership

    EPISODE 59               

    What do we do when our insecurity rears its head? When we feel vulnerable and exposed, incompetent but we still have to lead?  Denying, suppressing or bypassing our insecurities may give us short-term relief but will inevitably lead us to greater stress and disintegration.

    In this episode I explain why learning to recognise and deal with our insecurities in a healthy, self-compassionate way is essential to leading effectively.  I go on to offer 4 steps we can take to become better at leading ourselves through our insecurities.

    The Perils of Leadership (with Timothy Khoo)

    The Perils of Leadership (with Timothy Khoo)

    EPISODE 58             

    In this special episode of the Leadership series, I share a conversation with a fellow interior pilgrim who had tasted the heights of success in leadership but found himself tumbling into the search for authenticity and meaning when the personas that had defined him were taken from him.

    My guest for this episode is a former President and CEO of a global charitable organisation who now lives with the reality of the undeniable fact that true leadership is not only exercised with skilful hands but with integrity of heart. I hope you enjoy listening to this conversation with Timothy Khoo -  existential coach, sojourner guide, and founder of Desert Odyssey.

Becoming Me

Ann’s honesty and sincerity in sharing her own past struggles echoed so much with my own life. She gave me the courage to start digging up my well manicured cemetery lawn of buried aspects of me and allowing Jesus to breathe life into them again. I’m becoming me, can’t find a better word for it. If you feel burnt out, directionless, overwhelmed or just want to give up, listen to Ann, her stories and down to earth manner will definitely speak to your heart.

Helps me figure out where I was, am at, and where I need to be

These podcasts have accompanied me through a trying season in my life so it’s very timely. Grateful for this life-giving resource which teaches me how to dig deep and begin my own interior journey of authenticity. Still struggling and grappling, but I sincerely hope to grow and be better after doing the inner work. Life-changing podcast and I look forward to similar future digital products!
