    Hot Air Balloons and Other Fears That Hold You Back

    Hot Air Balloons and Other Fears That Hold You Back

    Are you ready to fly? In today’s episode, we are thrilled to share our experience of going on a hot air balloon ride and how it helped us gain some insights into conquering those fears that hold you back. (You’re going to need to listen to discover who is deathly afraid of heights and still rode in the balloon.)

    Facing a fear can give you a whole new perspective on your environment and open up new possibilities that you may have never considered. Sometimes it’s about showing up in a space and letting things happen with a trusted friend or colleague. 

    We hope that by sharing our adventure, we will encourage you to name a fear you have with one of your trusted people and then take some steps to conquer that fear. And once you do that, let us know. We’d love to celebrate with you! Celebrating is so important when you stop holding yourself back from something you thought you could never do.

    Living and Working with an Abundance Mindset, with Katie Christensen

    Living and Working with an Abundance Mindset, with Katie Christensen

    What does it mean to coach and lead with an abundance mindset instead of a scarcity mindset? When you hear the word abundance, do you think about only what you have, or do you think about what the community shares?

    In today’s podcast, Katie Christensen is back with her refreshing view about living with an abundance mindset. Her credentials are impressive, to say the least: Katie is a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, an e2grow-Certified High-Performing Team Coach, and the CEO and Founder of Beekuba. And while she has many talents, today we’re joining her in a conversation about how she uses her abundance mindset to guide her steps not only as a leader and coach, but as a wife, mother, and incredible human. 

    Katie operates out of a mindset of abundance instead of scarcity by working in collaboration with those around her. She celebrates the Strengths that she’s great at, while also celebrating the different Strengths of others, using everyone’s different Strengths to bring teams together as communities built on collaboration and trust. 

    Listen today to discover some techniques to help you live in a mindset of abundance instead of a mindset of scarcity, not only at work but in your personal life as well.

    Strengths Series Wrap Up: Core Beliefs and our Strengths

    Strengths Series Wrap Up: Core Beliefs and our Strengths

    We’re back in our Strength Series as we wrap it up today. Are you ready to go deep with us as we discuss how Negative Core Beliefs hold us back from thriving in our Strengths?  

    Core Beliefs can often feel like gospel truth to us and affect how we react and respond to things around us. Negative Core Beliefs tend to stay with us no matter where we are and what we’re trying to navigate. 

    Understanding our Core Beliefs can be powerful from a Strengths perspective. Listen today to learn how you positively navigate through those Negative Core Beliefs as you grow as an Emotionally Mature Leader. 

    At the Grounding and Growing Leadership podcast, we believe everyone is a leader and that leadership starts with you. Join Tara Gronhovd, Gallup Certified Clifton Strengths Coach and e2Grow High Performing Team Coach, and Pamela Nelson, Certified Leadership Coach, Counselor, and Spiritual Director, as we navigate conversations to grow you and your teams on your leadership journeys.

Multiple thanks!

Tara You have been there for me since day 1 of my Strengths journey, seen me at my worst, seen some growth and have always been there when I needed some coaching or just a friend. I already feel I owe a debt I could never repay and here you go and have to introduce me to Pamela via the podcast!😁. She is awesome! Grounded and Growing is my commute to work companion and will continue to be as it is chock full of nuggets I can quote, full of reminders of that in which I sometimes forget, and most of all full of insights that this old dog can put into use daily.
