    “I teach investors how to make double-digit returns through ethical property investing as I believe that together we can end homelessness,” says Dr. Payn.
    Dr Dionne Payn is co-founder and CEO of High Impact Property Investments. She specializes in partnering with investors looking for double-digit returns with projects that provide affordable and sustainable homes.
    Right now, they are building affordable and sustainable rental homes for women over 55, the fastest-growing group facing homelessness.

    Tames Rietdijk, Ocean Cleanup, ridding oceans and rivers of plastic

    Tames Rietdijk, Ocean Cleanup, ridding oceans and rivers of plastic

    We are back for another great interview in our Entelechy Series   In today’s episode, we chat with Tames Rietjek.
    Tames is an accomplished C-Level Executive with expertise and proven successes in financial markets, sustainability performance, financial crime prevention, stakeholder management, and business data science.  Currently, Tames is the Business Development at Ocean Cleanup, a company whose mission is to rid the oceans of plastic.
    He was first involved with environmental impact when he developed and launched an exchange in carbon emission rights, and carbon credits under the Kyoto protocol. Under this project, they were cleaning up dirty air, also known as the abusive consequences of economic development. The project was intended to have countries share the burden of the cost of global warming. However, the market on the Kyoto protocol was flooded with financial crime which took away the basis of trust in the carbon credit itself. It was during a raid by the national security agencies at the Euro exchanges in carbon credits who were investigating the number of criminal transactions that were facilitated by those exchanges. Tames was responsible for financial crime prevention and regulatory compliance and risk management of the Exchange, which proved to be the one where they could not find any criminal transaction. 
    There are about 30,000 to 35,000 rivers in the world. But only about 1000  rivers are responsible for 80% to 85% of the plastic that reaches the ocean. Most of these rivers are located in Southeast Asia & Central and South America. This already reduces the problem to very specific geographic areas.
    Oceans cleanup believes that by taking one step at a time,  we could get rid of all the legacy plastic that’s in the ocean. The journey started by involving a very scientific and technology-driven approach by first identifying the problem and running a few pilot projects to see what technology and what approach would serve the solution best. 
    The ocean is filled with legacy plastics because of a lack of filtered systems from when the plastic is consumed to when it ends up in the ocean.  
    Tames and his team are now deploying river technology solutions that catch plastic or catch trash before it reaches the ocean. So to not only take out the legacy plastic but also make sure that the tap is closed and it doesn't continue to grow.
    When it comes to leading a team working on trying to find solutions in search of a complex project, a lot of team dynamics come into play.  As a leader, the organization itself is spending a lot of time and effort to facilitate that psychological safety. People are encouraged to speak up. We have a lot of group meetings. We share a lot of the knowledge internally and everyone's invited to chip in their, 2 cents. 
    In summary, the way to effect this change is to change the mindset of people and the society as a whole.

    Jinny Uppal, author of "IN/Action: Rethinking the Path to Results"

    Jinny Uppal, author of "IN/Action: Rethinking the Path to Results"

    We are back for another great interview in our Entelechy Series   In today’s episode, we chat with Jinny Uppal, an award-winning author, business leader, and team builder.  She has over 20+ year track record of driving transformational growth in Fortune 500 telecom, e-commerce, and retail businesses including companies like Khol, Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy’s, IBM, etc
    Jinny’s recent book titled IN/Action: Rethinking the path to results, where she helps you leverage the power of a thoughtful pause to discover newer paths to great results while exploring the downside of the prevalent cultural bias toward unnecessary and counter-productive action. The book captures insights into the benefits of reflective thinking and thoughtful pauses while presenting a less stressful and more efficient way of achieving more by “doing” less. 
    Jinny got inspired to write this book after she found herself without a conventional job in 2020, she had always worked in a highly structured environment where action-oriented people were valued, and not being in this kind of space really distressed her. At that low point of her life, Jinny self-analyzed and realized her career had a couple of pivots. Every time she was about to start a new career, she had come from a moment of downtime. This period of non-action made her realize that what really drives great progress is inaction.
    Jinny gives a few pointers on how to help inaction give you results:
    Strategic inaction implies a choice. If you're thinking long-term, it's being here for the long game. It's not about doing this today for the sake of doing it. It’s doing this because you want to live to see another day. If you're working in a very complex and dynamic environment, very often the thing to do is wait for better information to come along or wait for things to sort themselves out. So you are not interfering with the flow of what's happening. People who are very action-oriented, are almost overacting at this point.  You don't need to because you're wasting your own mental bandwidth, physical time, and doing things that are not needed. In the book, she stresses it's all about taking thoughtful pauses, long enough for creative ideas to come through. Letting intuition make room for creation to come through you, as opposed to you chasing the idea. As a leader, you can’t mandate your people to change but if you live this way yourself as a leader and people see the consequences, the change in your behavior they will do what you are doing.When it comes to team collaboration, the pause experienced enhances communication. The power of verbal silence in conversations, negotiations, in team meetings. There's a science to prove that something as simple as a thoughtful pause of a few seconds in a meeting just leads to better outcomes for a team meeting.
    In conclusion, the first steps you can start doing are building restorative habits and giving yourself intermittent breaks throughout the day. Very few people truly control their schedules. You can't take a day off or days off at once, but instead, develop a habit of taking 10-minute breaks once a day, or a couple of times a week and do nothing, allowing your mind to declutter.

    Geeta Sidhu Robb, CEO of Nosh Detox

    Geeta Sidhu Robb, CEO of Nosh Detox

    We are back for another great interview in our Entelechy Series.  In today’s episode, we chat with Geeta Sidhu Robb.
    She is an Author, Speaker, Life Coach, CEO & Founder Nosh Detox. She also sits on the board of a Montessori group and is the Chair of Women's Development Board, a Microloan Foundation a women's empowerment and poverty alleviation charity supporting women in Southern Africa. 
    Geeta’s story starts when she was very successful but suddenly she lost everything and had to start her life from scratch. This included having to live with her friend as she looked for a new job. That was where Geeta started noshdetox.com which is an organic food and juice program delivery business back in 2008.
    As a business leader and a charity chair, Geeta believes in living & leading from her purpose. Standing up for what you believe in and having the courage to change the course of the river.  
    As the chair of Microloan Foundation, Geeta says that the benefits of empowering one woman has a ripple effect in that she uses the resources to grow her family, and benefit the community at large. 
    She says that the moment we start to see the world as a community, then we are able to contribute to not just cases in the developing world but right where you are in your neighborhood. 
    Geeta encourages corporates to have more compassion and not just take resources but remember that the priority is on the people who live in those communities where the resources are found. 
    Her work in Montessori teaches children to grow at their own pace so that they don't feel wrong about not growing at someone else's pace. This eventually creates strong and stable adults. She is now scaling this model of teaching children to areas that have refugee children. In that way, breaking the vicious cycle of children who are faced with trauma and that's all they grow up knowing.
    In conclusion, Geeta says Change is inevitable and suffering is totally optional. So you must constantly work on yourself because you are the biggest impediment to your own growth.
