Coaching Episode: Healing Work Burnout and Detaching From Praise
Do you have a hard time turning work off and tuning into your own needs? Do you think that failure is NOT an option? How attached to praise are you? Meet Nicole, a hard charging, energetic and successful sales leader who would work 14-hour days to win praise. When it did not come her way, she would feel resentful which would lead her to get back on the hamster wheel and work even harder. This unsustainable pattern resulted in no hobbies and no life outside of work. In our coaching conversation, learn new ways to prevent burnout, celebrate PROGRESS over PERFECTION, embrace failure and see what tuning into your own needs can look like. Success doesn’t need to be painful.
Get Coached: On Combating Impostor Syndrome
Whether you’re at the beginning of your career or the top of your game, we all experience impostor syndrome. This is the voice that says, “You can’t do this. You’re not who they think you are. Just wait ‘til you get found out!”
In this episode, we coach Chris — a leader that people want to follow — who is about to take on a huge new role. He opens up to us about that voice in his head that says, “What if you’re not partner material?”
Through this conversation, you will learn strategies to combat impostor syndrome, gain new insights around how to show up authentically in an interview and understand what it means to be a purposeful leader.
Get Coached: On Having the Courage to Make a Career Change
Many of us have built successful careers in industries that we no longer feel connected to. When we let ourselves daydream, we imagine doing something very different.
Yet our inner critics immediately stop us in our tracks with messages like, “You’re too old/inexperienced/young to make this kind of change. ” Or, “You won’t make enough money.” Or “People won’t understand why you are giving up something so stable.”
In this next “Get Coached” episode, meet Jeanne Griffin. She is a talented interior designer who has built up a very successful practice over the last 10 years. Yet 2 years ago, she had an awakening that opened her up to a new calling.
If you’re someone who’s been contemplating a career change but feels stuck, this is the episode for you. Join us as we coach Jeanne through the fears and resistance that hold her back from embracing the huge opportunity in front of her.
The “Get Coached” episode on Setting Boundaries and Receiving Feedback
“If you avoid conflict to keep the peace, you start a war inside yourself.” - anonymous
How many of you say “yes” when you want to say “no”? Does setting healthy boundaries make you nervous? Are you someone who fears feedback and takes it personally?
In this “Get Coached” episode, we work with Diana, a digital marketer and entrepreneur, to uncover why it is so hard to say no to clients and help her transform her relationship to setting boundaries and receiving feedback.
Through our coaching conversation with Diana, you will receive valuable new strategies for honoring your time, knowing your self-worth, receiving feedback and setting expectations with others to create more fulfillment and productivity in your life.
Embracing our mortality to create more purpose and meaning in life- Our Conversation with Dr. Steven Pantilat
For many of us, thinking about our own death is too daunting, so we turn away. Yet embracing our mortality can help us create more meaning and purpose in our lives and cause us to explore questions like… What do I most hope for? What’s most important to me? What is the legacy I want to leave behind?
These are some of the questions that our wise guest, Dr. Steven Pantilat, founding director of the UCSF Palliative Care program, asks his patients on a daily basis.
In this interview, Dr. Pantilat talks about what it’s like to deliver the devastating news of a terminal diagnosis while holding the space for people to process. He talks about how to find hope, even in the most dire of circumstances. We explore the power of gratitude, our relationship with denial and the big questions to ask yourself when planning for the future.
No matter your situation, our hope is that this conversation will broaden your perspective and inspire you to get moving on what is most important to you.

In this teachable episode, we talk more deeply about the power of knowing your “Why”, how to connect with your purpose and what makes a great partnership. We also share new ways to transform fails into learns and why we should be grateful for making the mistakes we make. Get ready to feel more connected to the work you do and embrace powerful strategies for creating the healthiest partnerships – at work and in life.
