    Curiosity Never Killed the Cat (..and other things to be curious about)

    Curiosity Never Killed the Cat (..and other things to be curious about)

    In today’s episode, our co-hosts Dave and Susan Kenney welcomes the founder and CEO of Polnareff Consulting and media-based business, Dr. Diane Hamilton. She talks about curiosity, how to find it, how to keep it, why it can break the status quo and how to turn it into one of life’s key factors to success. The impact of curiosity is also connected to one’s perception, which she teases a bit about in the book she is writing now.
    Curiosity comes naturally to all of us in our younger years. As we grow old, it becomes inhibited by what she calls FATE and when it is unlocked once more, it will lead a person to knowing their real life purpose.
    She also links curiosity as a factor behind successful companies and businesses as it makes lives a lot less boring, making the workers or employees more interactive and productive.
    Curiosity fuels the will to move onwards in everyone. Rise above and know more about curiosity by listening to the full show and discover that curious side of you!

    Connection: The Antidote to Addiction and The Gateway to Resilience - Part 2

    Connection: The Antidote to Addiction and The Gateway to Resilience - Part 2

    Part 2 of our excellent interview with Dr. Kolari
    ----
    Jennifer Kolari is one of the nation's leading and sought after Child and Family Therapists and co-founder of “Connected Parenting”. 

    The role of a parent today is to be their children's substitute frontal lobe and you have to know as a parent, how and when to back out. This world has changed. With pre life crisis, teenagers being oriented to each other rather than their parents and an entire generation growing up with screens not having neurological hardware to handle trouble. Parenting has changed, kids have changed.

    Learn how connection turns into resilience in children. Good adversaries make them better persons but hyper-parenting causes them to become over dependent. Furthermore, it will be explained where parenting instincts are located in the brain and where emergency responses in children are. Jennifer also found out that connection can solve addiction just from a mouse experiment. 

    “Connect before you correct”

    We can use the mirroring technique, a therapy technique about building, regulating a child's mood, increasing trust and compliance, improving brain function and building a greater immune system. Rise above with this superpower!

    Having deep connections is essential for optimal health, and living your best and most vibrant life

    Having deep connections is essential for optimal health, and living your best and most vibrant life

    Isolating oneself can be a bigger factor of health and mortality risk versus smoking, alcohol consumption, even poor diet! The way our brain is programmed, we want to keep things the same because same equals safe. However, transformations are easily, beautifully facilitated when you have other people who are going through a similar situation -- thresholds are stretched and we push through the other side a much more whole, healthy individual. You can't cultivate true health transformation without people.
    “When the other’s story is so similar to yours, but they've transformed that and turn it into their power, that instantaneously gives you permission to do the same”
    Learn that the connections with others create that trust and create that foundation for true, lasting change to happen. Rise above when you harness the impact of the community and the empowering wonders it does to ones health.

    Wellness Coaching: What It Is and How It Helps

    Wellness Coaching: What It Is and How It Helps

    Erika talks about Wellcoaches and how their intense coaching course touches on a lot of the human behavior, physical and emotional aspects.
    “Coaches are the best listeners. They are the best at open-ended inquiry. The best at reflecting what someone has just said so that that client or patient feels heard. The best just being there in the moment without an agenda to push, force, prod someone along into the result that they think that client should be moving toward. And we have unconditional positive regard because of our deep belief that everyone has strengths, and everyone has had some kind of success or best experience that can be learned from. We hold hope.”
    Learn what coaching is, who coaching is not a good fit for, the difference between coaching and counseling and therapy, a “strengths based” process, the power of the question, VIA, “win or lose” vs. “win/learn” etc.
    “People are not resistant to change. People are resistant to being changed.”
    Hosts Susan and Dave Kenney discover how coaching is a continuing education for experienced professionals. Rise above by getting a glimpse of how coaches are coached.
