    Episode 218: Finding Zen with Ginny Whitelaw

    Episode 218: Finding Zen with Ginny Whitelaw

    Want to become more heart-centered? We invite you to join us on Deb’s Dailies (daily blog and newsletter), a daily reflection on living and loving life as a heart-centered leader.
    From her first science job working in a high energy physics lab to learning how to work with energy in Aikido and Zen training, to her doctoral research in biophysics, Ginny Whitelaw has had a passion for bringing energy, mind, and body together.
    When she was a senior leader at NASA in charge of integrating the Space Station Program, she took several leadership courses, but was dissatisfied that their “head-only” approach ignored the body where enduring change occurs.
    It became clear that integrating science and the physical, energetic practices from the dojo into leadership development was her work to do. For more than 25 years, she has taught and coached whole leaders in top companies all over the world.
    But it wasn’t until she founded the Institute for Zen Leadership in 2012 that she saw how much further she could take a self-selected group of leaders over the course of even a long weekend.
    How fulfilling to lift the wings of people already committed to making a positive difference! She’d found her life’s work.
    Ginny Jiko Whitelaw Roshi is a Zen priest, teacher, and writer. She is the author of four books, including The Zen Leader and award-winning, Resonate: Zen and the Way of Making a Difference.
    Together with her psychologist husband, Mark Kiefaber, she developed the FEBI®, which measures four energy patterns in the nervous system that link mind, body, and behaviors, giving a view into the whole person that called her into this field from the start.
    She loves the stillness of meditation, the vibrancy of dance, and the feeling of being on the water and digging in the dirt.

    Episode 217: Trauma-informed Change Leadership with Dr. Mary Jo Burchard

    Episode 217: Trauma-informed Change Leadership with Dr. Mary Jo Burchard

    Want to become more heart-centered? We invite you to join us on Deb’s Dailies (daily blog and newsletter), a daily reflection on living and loving life as a heart-centered leader.

    Dr. Mary Jo Burchard is a change leadership coach and consultant currently living in Virgian Beach, VA. MJ’s journey started in higher ed, teaching organizational leadership.

    During that time, she and her husband adopted a little boy from Ukraine, whose childhood involved more surgeries than grades. This experience shaped her understanding of what impact belonging has on being able to tell the truth about who we are, what we need, and the power of caring deeply enough about people to accept them fully as they are.

    Her doctoral work involved the impact of high-octane altruistic leaders who are impacted by unprocessed trauma. She noticed that these kinds of people tend to pour everything into their role and let the rest of their personhood become dormant.

    She likes to tell the leaders she coaches to “AirDrop her into the messy” and let’s work on being humane as possible while we walk through non-negotiable tough things.
