    Season 5, Episode 7: Breaking Through to Enhanced Performance and Joy

    Season 5, Episode 7: Breaking Through to Enhanced Performance and Joy

    Breakthrough Coaching helps leaders get out of their own way.
    In the Jan/Feb 2022 issue of Harvard Business Review, there was an article called Family Ghosts in the Executive Suite by Deborah Ancona and Dennis N.T. Perkins.   It ended up generating an unforgettable conversation in our Review Club that month, as the members shared their own roles in their families of origin and connected these previously unconscious patterns to their current work lives.  Epiphanies galore.
    Join Kedren as she interviews Dr. Laura Groves to learn about Work Wisdom’s unique way of connecting family systems to our clients’ consciousness to push through obstacles that are preventing optimal performance and joy.

    Season 5, Episode 6: One Foot in Front of The Other: Moving Forward When The World Is Falling Apart

    Season 5, Episode 6: One Foot in Front of The Other: Moving Forward When The World Is Falling Apart

    For most of our listeners, it’s been a brutal week, compounded by a tumultuous couple of years.  We heard you when you asked for concrete advice about how to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

    This is required listening for leaders, because you are both emotionally highly contagious to your teams (who want to feel valued right now) AND you are responsible for progress in our companies and communities.  It’s a big lift when the world feels like it’s unraveling.

    Join Dr. McCray and Kedren to learn about three categories of ordering the chaos, and then consider whether borrowing their habits could help you or potentially serve your team as we collectively put one foot in front of the other.
