    The Business of Beauty with Plastic Surgeon Kamakshi Zeidler

    Self-confidence is a superpower that can help determine our success. It is a force that gives us the courage and strength to take any risk, despite knowing our weaknesses. Our leaders play a great role in empowering us, supporting us in rebuilding ourselves and reinventing our self-expression.
     
    In this episode of Fifth Dimensional Leadership, I interview Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler, Managing Partner and Founder of Aesthetx. Growing up in a working-class home caring for her siblings, Dr. Zeidler appreciated the ability to care for others. As her interest in medicine grew, so did her passion for helping others in a way that inspired her creativity and sense of beauty. In our conversation, Dr. Zeidler discusses the science behind rebuilding our self-confidence and reshaping our success.
     
    Dr. Zeidler received her Bachelor of Arts degree in biology from Rice University in Houston, Texas. She earned her Doctor of Medicine Degree at the University of California, San Francisco, one of the top five medical schools in the country. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, her experience in reconstruction gives her more than just a broad understanding of the complexities of the human body, but allows her to understand exactly how significantly cosmetic surgery can change someone's life for the better.
     
    Along with her stellar reputation in aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, Dr. Zeidler is considered a leading authority on the newest technologies related to breast surgery. Dr. Zeidler works as a clinical researcher for companies such as  Allergan and Sientra. She has also written several publications and lectured across the country to educate other plastic surgeons on these technologies, as well as her own techniques in aesthetic breast surgery.

Emerging aesthetic trends among those from different generations. What it means to have a “right to beauty” and how the ideals of beauty have changed in recent years. How self-confidence and self-expression can lead to success. Quotes: “As a surgeon, thinking like a chef means you’re creating something beautiful; medically sound, life-saving, beautifying, and making someone whole using those principles.” - Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler
     
    “You can express your own style and not be worried that someone is going to discount anything that you have to say. Your research and credibility are not affected by a little bit of self-expression.” - Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler
     
    “Your overall sense of self and self-confidence is tied to your personal perception of your self-expression, whether it’s beauty, or youth. For everyone, it means something different.” - Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler
     
    “The idea of confidence with your physical presence in the world is tied with success.” - Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler

    Reclaiming Freedom and Happiness through Conscious Leadership with Emilio Diez Barroso

    The more relentlessly we pursue our goals, the more we fail to realize that we are already perpetuating our suffering. We become so preoccupied with seeking prosperity, pleasure and recognition that we forget to live in the moment.

    “The body is very much in the present moment, and it’s always in a relationship right now.” - Emilio Diez Barrosso

    Transforming Leaders by “Leading with Heart” with Edward Sullivan

    It's a challenge to create a safe workplace where each of us can thrive, and the pressure falls hard on our leaders. It takes courage and significant motivation to help leaders improve so they can better lead their people in this complex time.
     
    In this episode of Fifth Dimensional Leadership, I interview Edward Sullivan, CEO & Managing Partner at Velocity Coaching. Edward has coached and mentored start-up founders, Fortune 500 executives, and political leaders for over 20 years. Edward helps startup CEOs and their executive teams scale their leadership skills and build cultures of collaboration, high performance, and psychological safety. When working with more established companies, he focuses on helping CEOs transform their teams and culture to be more agile and responsive to compete in today’s fast-paced environment. 
     
    In our conversation, Edward talks about transforming leadership to build cultures of collaboration, connection, and psychological safety.
     
    Edward holds an MBA from the Wharton School, an MPA from the Harvard Kennedy School, and trained as a coach at Co-Active Training Institute and New Ventures West.

    “Change has to come from [leaders] for the system to heal. Not all systems heal because one person is able to be brave.” - Edward Sullivan
     
    “When a company is printing billions of dollars per year, there’s really no incentive to change. But it takes transformative leadership to stop and think if it’s the company you want to build.” - Edward Sullivan
     
    “Have the courage to ask for what we need and the curiosity to ask other what they need” - Edward Sullivan
     
    “We can create change in the dysfunctional system by taking off our masks, putting down our shields, and being vulnerable again.” - Edward Sullivan
     
    “Often, the CEO or the Founder has the clearest lens of what good looks like, but if no one is meeting that expectation, it’s a leadership problem, not performance.” - Edward Sullivan
     
    “If we endure for months that feeling of not being seen, not emotionally connected, and not appreciated by our team and leaders, that’s when we start to feel emotionally exhausted and that is the true cause of burnout.” - Edward Sullivan

Fifth Dimensional Understanding

I recently found Ginny Clark and I have been missing out! This podcast isn't just a breath of fresh air; it's like stepping into a whole new dimension of leadership wisdom. With each episode, I feel like I'm unlocking a fifth-dimensional understanding of what it truly means to lead.

Not only does this podcast redefine leadership in the workplace, but it also extends its insightful guidance to every aspect of life. It's like having a personal mentor guiding you not just through professional challenges, but through the complexities of life itself. Prepare to be inspired, enlightened, and empowered to lead not just at work, but in every facet of your life. Thank you, Ginny!

Phenomenal Example of Leading with Empathy

Each episode dives into the attributes of a true leader. It takes in the nuances of personality, external as well as internal circumstances and provides a foundation of where to build your leadership from. I thoroughly enjoy how Ginny’s voice has this sense of a cadence when asking questions and sharing about her background. This podcast dismantles the theory of imposter syndrome and highlights in what ways do you yield your power as a leader and how you may be unintentionally controlling other’s power. A very great podcast to listen to as you go about your day. Great work Ginny!
