    Episode 89 - Renee Giarrusso | The Gift Mindset

    Episode 89 - Renee Giarrusso | The Gift Mindset

    Renee Giarrusso is a communication, leadership and mindset expert. She is a speaker, author, facilitator, educator and coach who works with leaders, teams and organisations to energise mindset and accelerate communication, collaboration and leadership to lift performance and culture.

    Her first book Limitless Leadership in 2016 was soon followed by the Leaders of Influence anthology. This episode with Renee is jam-packed with practical tips as we unpack her new book, The Gift Mindset - Unwrap the 12 gifts to lead and live a life of purpose, connection and contribution.

    We explore how to apply the Gift Mindset to both challenging and positive circumstances. Also some of the barriers to living a gift mindset.

    Renee's stories throughout this episode are really peppered with some immediately implementable actions so make sure to have a paper and pen handy!

    Key episode highlights include:


    What bookend habits can you develop? What is something that you can do that anchor the beginning and end of your working day?
    Don't just confine yourself to one workspace. Change it up according to your mood and tasks being completed.
    Ask yourself, what habits are working for me and which ones do I need to rewrite?
    Don't use success as a secret weapon, share it with others to elevate the whole organisation.
    Try this: when you need a breather from work, open every window in your house, and then shut them again. Not only will it increase oxygen by 200% but it's a great brain break and gets your body moving!

    To connect further with Renee, head to her website or find her on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And of course, check out The Gift Mindset here.

    Episode 88 - 2021 Success Map Series | Word for the year

    Episode 88 - 2021 Success Map Series | Word for the year

    Across this 5-part podcast series, I chat with co-facilitator of Leaders Who Give A Damn, Becky Hammond from Isogo Strong on how to create your success map to learn from 2020 and set your sights for success in 2021. We cover topics such as growth mindset, reflection, goal setting, actions, accountability & partnerships, and word for the year.

    In this final episode of the series, we dive into your word of the year - again using the supportive Success Map 2021 resource as we go.
    The 'word of the year' concept has been around for a really long time (even as far back as the 1940s) and for good reason! It is an intentional theme, an anchor word, to take you through the year and keep coming back to. But if it hasn't dropped in yet, don't despair! Think of the process of figuring out your word as an invitation, not a pressure.
    We end on inviting you to bring your word into each day by asking a reflection question: How am I being *insert word* today?

    Key points:


    Let your word of the year just drop in - don't force it
    Your word of the year doesn't necessarily need to be an action-based one - it could convey that you need more space
    Allow your word of the year to inspire you and shift your energy
    Bring your word into daily action via the process of reflection.

    To create your own 2021 Success Map, head over to the Leaders Who Give a Damn website for the free resource which contains the workbook for this podcast episode.

We cover topics such as growth mindset, reflection, goal setting, actions, accountability & partnerships, and word for the year.

    We speak about how to chunk down goals with tangible steps, the differences between accountability and support, plus how we need to use discernment when choosing the things we want to action.

    Key points:


    Big goals need to be chunked down to actionable baby steps
    Goals don't just get met by being out there
    Doing ALL of the things just makes every day overwhelming

    Episode 86 - 2021 Success Map Series | Goal Setting

    Across this 5-part podcast series, I chat with co-facilitator of Leaders Who Give A Damn, Becky Hammond from Isogo Strong on how to create your success map to learn from 2020 and set your sights for success in 2021. We cover topics such as growth mindset, reflection, goal setting, actions, accountability & partnerships, and word for the year.

    In this episode, we dive deep into goal setting and walk you through the Success Map 2021 workbook on this.

    It's proven that people who set goals are happier, healthier, feel a higher sense of achievement and gain more momentum, self-assurance, and self-esteem. We look at what areas you should consider having goals in, the beauty in being really specific and clear in what you want, and why self-care needs to be in there too.

    Key points:


    Have a mixture of smaller goals and stretch goals
    Visualise to enhance your goal clarity
    Being the best version of you should always be on your goal list
    Bring other people on board to help you achieve your goals

    Episode 85 - 2021 Success Map Series | Reflection

    Episode 85 - 2021 Success Map Series | Reflection

    This is part 2 of this 5-part podcast series, where I chat with co-facilitator of Leaders Who Give A Damn, Becky Hammond from Isogo Strong on how to create your success map to learn from 2020 and set your sights for success in 2021. We cover topics such as growth mindset, reflection, goal setting, actions, accountability & partnerships, and word for the year.

    In this episode, we reflect on 2020, and walk you through the Success Map 2021 workbook on reflection.

    Reflecting on 2020, Becky and I open up about the year we both had and what themes came through (they may not be what you expect!) and how our core Strengths themes shine through during the reflection process. We also discuss mental health, how there's no switch to make 2021 great, and focusing on how to move past our individual stressors no matter the year or global circumstance.

    Key points:


    Allow 2020 to bring you wisdom rather than darkness.
    Reflect, review, then apply.
    Did you pause long enough to celebrate the good things?
    When reviewing, ask yourself how could this be better or more efficient?

Actionable and Entertaining

Murray never disappoints. I know when I tune into an episode I’m about to learn something that I can immediately put to use. And to be thoroughly entertained along the way...

Conversational style. Leadership and growth expertise!

These interview style podcasts are so authentic and organic. It often feels like I’m just sitting right there listening in on a conversation between not only experts, but friends too. Definitely a worthy part of my podcast rotation!
