    12. MLK Day of Service, 6 Steps of Nonviolent Social Change, and the Beloved Community

    12. MLK Day of Service, 6 Steps of Nonviolent Social Change, and the Beloved Community

    Today is January 18th, 2021, the 35th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day federal holiday. In 1994, congress established the MLK federal holiday to be a national day of service to continue Dr. King’s dream of communities rooted in freedom, justice, equality, and peace.

    As we honor and remember the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Nobel Peace Prize laureate, pastor and social justice campaigner and his wife, Coretta Scott King, the author, activist and civil rights leader, host Sean Riley explores his words as useful leadership lessons that every non-profit, impact-driven leader, corporate professional or anyone in a leadership position can use to move towards peace and justice for all.

    Originally by the philosopher and theologian Josiah Royce, Dr. King popularized the term "Beloved Community." The Beloved Community is a global vision in which people can share in the wealth of the earth.  "In the Beloved Community, poverty, hunger and homelessness will not be tolerated because international standards of human decency will not allow it." - TheKingCenter.org.

    This episode contains clips from Dr. King's last Christmas sermon "A Christmas Sermon On Peace," originally delivered on December 24, 1967 at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia which prophetically presents his long-term vision of nonviolence as a path toward world peace. 

    In this episode, Host Sean Riley outlines the "Six Steps of Nonviolent Social Change" from The King Center, part of Dr. King's work to emphasize love in action and to help get us closer to that Beloved Community that Dr. King revered.

    11. Mark Monchek, Founder of The Opportunity Lab, on Conscious Leadership, and Creating a Culture of Opportunity

    11. Mark Monchek, Founder of The Opportunity Lab, on Conscious Leadership, and Creating a Culture of Opportunity

    Mark Monchek is the Founder of The Opportunity Lab, a strategy consulting firm which empowers leaders focused on conscious and sustainable growth.

    Mark is the author of the Amazon bestseller, Culture of Opportunity: How to Grow Your Business in an Age of Disruption, and he has worked with leaders from Google, Apple, Columbia University, Warby Parker, the United Nations, General Electric, NBC, The NYTimes, and others.

    Mark has also been featured in Real Leaders Magazine, The LifeTime Network, Conscious Talk Radio, NewsDay, The San Francisco Chronicle and various other media publications and interviews.

    How do we create great companies that make a difference? How do companies take an expanded view of their stakeholders and define mission statements that succeed in today’s shifting economy? What does it take for an organization to succeed and be sustainable over time? And how does one find opportunity amidst major life disruptions, like the pandemic, which has taken a major toll on the economy and small businesses?

    In this episode, Mark Monchek shares how he went through a spiritual awakening at the time of the Great Recession, and experienced theft from his company which led to a depression resulting in him getting treatment and feeling a deep sense of gratitude and opportunity. As he recounts in his Amazon bestselling book, doing this reflection led him to notice what companies that succeeded during this time were doing differently. His strategic consulting firm offers a variety of tools to help businesses cope with disruption, adapt to changes, and succeed in any economy. 

    Mark has spent a large part of his life supporting others, specifically companies that rebuilt after 9/11, university students and social enterprises.

    Mark Monchek and Host Sean Riley discuss ShareLab, The Opportunity Community, his book Culture of Opportunity, SuccessDNA, and dive into the deeper layers behind his compassion, and generosity by discussing his personal side, adversity, upbringing and rapid fire questions.

    8. A Tipping Point For Ending Systemic Racism with Eunice Makinde and Janna Allen

    8. A Tipping Point For Ending Systemic Racism with Eunice Makinde and Janna Allen

    “The most disrespected person in America is the black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the black woman. The most neglected person in America is the black woman.” - Malcolm X.

    The tragic death of George Floyd led to Black Lives Matter protests across the world. Police departments have been re-examining the nature of policing. Corporations have responded with public Diversity, Equity and Inclusion statements. People have been out marching, having conversations, donating to racial justice organizations and registering to vote like never before. Where do we go from here? Is this a real inflection point in the fight to end racial injustice? 

    In today's episode of How Are You Helping?, the former director of the Diversity & Inclusion office at Portland State University's School of Business, Eunice Makinde, and a social justice activist and founder of the blog "Of Hope & Hunger", Janna Allen from Austin, TX, join Host, Sean Riley, for a special episode on how to be anti-racist, being an effective ally, how to find joy in times of grief, pain, and unrest, how we overturn systemic oppression in day to day life and much, much more.

Refreshing and inspirational

How are you helping? When I first heard this I could not think of something so refreshing. Many people want to help and don’t know how to start. Sean does an amazing job bringing in the best of the best leaders from multiple organizations across the Nation. He is a young man doing what people talk about. He is making that 1% everyday. He is getting the information from leaders that everyone wonders about. He speaks with energy and passion. The topics he and leaders discuss are the hard topics no one wants to talk about nor care. Sean goes out of his comfort zone to bring awareness and help communities while focusing on others and not himself. When you listen to this you will not regret it! This is the first step on how you are able to help!

Inspiring

We encounter so much negativity in society today. In spite of the world seeming chaotic and selfish, it is nice to be able to come across this kind of podcast. It inspires you to find your purpose and to use it not just to look after yourself but for other people.
