    Interior Life & Leadership

    EPISODE 55       

    We all know how important good leadership is, and  many of us fear that we don't measure up when we have to lead. While there are many ways that we can grow to become more effective as a leader, we often fail to appreciate the harm that an inauthentic and insecure leader can cause - even when we possess other leadership abilities.

    In this episode, I share about my past struggles with leadership when I was still unaware of my lack of interior integration, and how my dependence on external validation made the burdens of leadership heavier than they would have otherwise been.

    3 Reasons You Can't Find Your Calling

    3 Reasons You Can't Find Your Calling

    EPISODE  54     

    If you have been searching for your calling or personal vocation and still feel that you lack clarity, have you wondered how you can help yourself gain clarity in this process?

    In this episode I talk about three reasons we struggle to gain clarity about our personal vocation - a lack of awareness of the scripts that influence our lives; a lack of knowledge about the unique design we have been given; and a lack of interior freedom to be authentic.

    Season 4 Round-up & A Leader's Spirituality

    EPISODE 53

    In this final episode to Season 4, I review what we've covered and once again provide an over-arching view of the thematic arcs of this podcast.

    I also talk about A Leader's Spirituality (ALS), an online course that I will be teaching in Sep-Oct 2022 for the Catholic Leadership Centre where we will delve systematically into the fundamental principles spoken about on this podcast. Specifically, this course facilitates participants in learning now to be a more authentic, integrated and spiritually fruitful leader - at work, in families, or in church contexts.

    Registration is open through July-August 2022. For more information or to register, go to https://www.integroformation.com/als.

    Performing vs Living Life Fully

    Performing vs Living Life Fully

    EPISODE 52  (BONUS)   

    When we are in performance mode we expect to be assessed, evaluated and we seek to impress. There are times when we need to be in performance mode but what if that's how we approach our whole life? We end up exhausted and our identities fuse with the roles we play.

    In this bonus episode I reflect about what happens when we don't get out of "performance mode" and end up never really LIVING our life as our full, human, imperfect and work-in-progress selves.

    Freedom from the Shame that Binds You

    Freedom from the Shame that Binds You

    EPISODE   51       

    Many of us don't realise how much of a hold shame - specifically toxic shame - has over us. When shame is 'toxic', we don't just feel shame over what we do but we experience deep shame over WHO WE ARE.

    Toxic shame at the core of our identity re-tells the lie that our worth depends on never making a mistake or never disappointing others.

    In this episode I share some of my own experiences of shame and how I began to be freed from the hold that it had over me.

    Building Inner Resilience in Stressful Times

    Building Inner Resilience in Stressful Times

    EPISODE  50 

    Being our real selves can be difficult even when we are not under duress. How do we build the inner resilience to still act with authenticity even in times of stress and adversity?

    In this episode I discuss three factors that impact our inner resilience:

     - our level of integration (healing)
    - our ability to self-regulate when we are triggered,
    - and the availability of the right kind of external support.
