The easiest future of work is the future you create at the beginning.
The one that you establish when you start a company.
Everything else is a battle to change established norms. Systems like to stay the same.
So make one you want to keep--sounds easy, no?
Join me, Leela Sinha, for a showcase of the best ideas out there for changing the way we work (and live) for the better. If you're a leader, if you're a founder, if you're an executive who just doesn't believe the way it's always been is the way it has to be, this podcast is for you. We'll talk ethical growth, real change, and networking that really IS about relationships. We'll get creative about solving the problems that make people quit by deconstructing the assumptions that keep us stuck and asking over and over: where does the power need to pivot? How could this be better...and the big one: where do I have the power to change it?
If you're sick of feeling like you have to trade in your integrity to reach the top of your game, tune in.
See you soon!
sell ourselves not our souls
Marketing authentically and speaking to the importance of personal well-being in our businesses.

feed yourself beauty
When we pour a little bit of ourselves into the world, and then we pump, we get water. But a dry pump yields nothing.

kind leadership, good results
What if everybody had "I will not take it out on others" on their top priority list?
Mentioned in this episode:
When I was a kid, I used to dread going to school every single morning, I'd get a little bit sick. And honestly, I thought it was normal. So when I grew up and started going to work, and it kept happening, I thought that was normal too. And it was a long time before I found out that that's not in fact, normal. And then I started my own business, and I figured that the problem would probably go away. Yeah, spoiler, it did not go away. People are unpredictable, and they bring all their emotions with them into the business relationship. And we bring all our emotions with us into the business relationship. And that, that's the part that made me nervous. Wouldn't it be great if everything was just a little more predictable? Wouldn't it be great if you could like guess better what people were going to need or want or what was going to make them mad or what was going to make them happy? With executive coaching based on the Sinha Intensives-Expansives Framework you can do that. We'll help you find just a little bit more of that predictability by understanding what your people want, what your people need, and what makes them feel good. You can better anticipate their responses and meet them where they really are, negotiate better, serve them better, and grow your business better.

fixing quiet quitting
Quiet Quitting isn't really quitting at all. And if employers treated employees with dignity, we wouldn't be talking about it.
An article from In These Times on the Fed, interest rates, and how the Fed's response to inflation is "highly likely to involve some pain."
We are made to be interconnected. We are made to rely on each other, which means we need other people around us. We fall down when we become too reliant on our individualism because being an individual is like being a table with only one leg.
Get to the finish line and find that dopamine! Intensives, the 80% Problem, and deliberately finding things that we can do well and to completion in order to build trust in our own abilities to change the world.
