Your actionable podcast and online community for making things better. Each week we interview an expert in change. From personal growth to organizational change to cultural/political shifts, this is where passionate people move from ideas to actions, starting today and finishing for good.
ep010: Alicia Dattner "The Feminine Side of Doing and Change"
Our guest today was voted "Best Comedian" in San Francisco several times for her standup and solo shows. But Alicia Dattner is more than just funny, she also works with groups and individuals on storytelling, self-expression, and creativity in business. We first met on stage years ago as she was improvising some 60-second life stories from members of the audience, and jumped in to serve as the impromptu backup band. Conversations with Alicia are usually fun and rarely predictable. I was pleasantly surprised to end up talking with her about the feminine side of change, here on Doable Change.
Takeaway #1: Feeling stuck? Look for the fear, there are probably a few layers of it that are sticking together and clogging things up for you. One antidote is to simply notice and accept fear, without a need to change it. Often this can dislodge and de-power resistances, helping things just fall away.
Takeaway #2: Embrace the feminine side of change. This is not a substitute for basic goals and planning, but it is critical component of flow. Nourish your emotional responses, give them room, let them move. This exploration may not lead directly to the goal as originally stated but it will lead to something. Likely something even more worthwhile.
Takeaway #3: Getting upset is a great clue. It's a sign that you really care about something. This is not something to placate or to fix, instead it is something to celebrate and to explore further. Try following that care, and seeing where it leads you.
ep009: Metasode on Change
Today is not like our normally scheduled episodes. Instead of a guest interview, it's a checkpoint of sorts. We've asked every guest how they measure their changemaking successes and how they know when they're off track. Here's our chance take a few minutes to examine this for Doable Change itself. The podcast is all about focusing our awareness on integrating best practices, after all.
ep008: Michael Stocker "Sounds of Change"
Today we'll be speaking with a musician and audio engineer turned founder/director non-profit that's changing the way the world thinks about sound. From mixing films like the classic "Koyaanisqatsi" to helping create ISO standards on underwater metrics to speaking at environmental and scientific conferences all over the world and helping shift military and government policy, Michael Stocker is all about making change doable.
Against the odds, his work with Ocean Conservation Research has lead to real changes in the way the decisions are made about noise in our oceans. Here he reveals how that's happened, and what else has changed in the last 25 years.
ep007: David Corbin "Mastering Change"
Today we talk with award-winning inventor and best-selling author, David Corbin. Businesses praise him for helping to contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars to their bottom line as a consultant, and being one of their top motivational speakers. He's helped clients such as Visa, Hallmark, AT&T, Calvin Klein, Home Depot, Domino's Pizza, and agencies like Department of Veterans Affairs and Internal Revenue Service figure out which way is forward when nothing seems certain. Get ready for an engaging conversation about mastering change, here on Doable Change.
ep006: Denise Lynch "Change and The Mind"
Our guest today has personally conducted over 10,000 private sessions, helping people make changes doable in their own lives. She's also taught hundreds of workshops and thousands of people about how to master the skills needed to work directly with the subconscious mind. As owner of the Changes Now hypnotherapy clinic, The Utah School of Hypnosis, and a certified Master Trainer for the National Guild of Hypnotists, Denise Lynch knows a thing or two about how the human mind functions, and how to work with it in a very practical sense. She also has a dozen audio processes available on her Clear Mind label, including "Living an Empowered Life" which for over a year was one of the top Self-Development audiobook on iTunes. She's also my partner, both in business and in life. I'm proud to say we'll celebrate our 5th anniversary this year. We recorded this episode on Valentine's Day, and I hope you enjoy our conversation about Change and The Mind.
Takeaway #1: You can outsmart your own mind. Doing this requires resetting our subconscious triggers, and because it's hard to consciously work with your own subconscious, working with a professional hypnotist can really make huge a difference.
Takeaway #2: Hypnosis is the easiest way to align your subconscious beliefs with your conscious goal. When this happens, the goal becomes practically inevitable because changes made at the level of our beliefs automatically manifest in effortless shifts in our lives.
Takeaway #3: The subconscious mind responds fairly quickly to the repetition of clear messages. Affirmations alone are not usually enough, but can help cement our beliefs in a new direction of our choosing.
ep005: Julian Stodd "Adapting to this Age of Change"
Our guest today creates and implements innovative strategies for improved Leadership, Culture change, and effective Learning design. Julian Stodd founded Sea Salt Learning to better serve his extensive global client list, while he continues to research, write, and share widely. We're happy to speak with him on Doable Change about adapting to this age of change.
