    Episode 22 - Toxic Work Environments: How to Recover and Thrive after a traumatic work experience with Dr. Randall Bell

    Episode 22 - Toxic Work Environments: How to Recover and Thrive after a traumatic work experience with Dr. Randall Bell

    As a career coach, I've helped many clients either currently in toxic work environments or those who left, but still feel shaken to the core by their past experiences. 

    In this episode, I connect with trauma expert, Dr. Randall Bell to discuss ways to help individuals still reeling from negative work experiences and strategies to help them not only survive, but also thrive as they embark upon the next chapter of their career.

    Randall Bell, PhD, is a sociologist and economist who specializes in disaster recovery projects.
    No stranger to how harsh the world is, Dr. Bell has consulted in more tragedies around the world than anyone. He was retained for the World Trade Center, Flight 93, Sandy Hook, BP Oil Spill, Hurricane Katrina, the Bikini Atoll Nuclear Test sites, the BP Oil spill, the Northridge earthquake, OJ Simpson, Jon Benet Ramsey, Heaven's Gate, and hundreds of other cases. He has been retained by the Federal Governments of the United States, Canada, and Australia to help resolve numerous crises, and his work has generated billions of dollars to rebuild damaged communities.
    Dr. Bell’s investigations have taken him to 50 states, and seven continents. Having met with countless victims, he earned the nickname of Master of Disaster. In every case, Dr. Bell observed the emotional consequences and how some fared better than others. He was inspired to put his unique research skills to work and study the cycle of trauma.
    A frequent guest of the media, Dr. Bell is the featured expert in Topic’s “Distressed Real Estate” documentary series directed by Jason Stefaniak. His career has been profiled by NBC's Today Show, Rolling Stone Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, People Magazine, ABC's 20/20, Hallmark’s Home & Family, and many others.
    Dr. Bell is the author of MeWeDoBe and the founder of Core IQ, a non-profit educational foundation that provides free online training on life skills. 
    In Post-Traumatic Thriving, Dr. Bell lays out the academic research and speaks freely about his trauma of being born with a congenital heart defect. Diagnosed with PTSD, he utilized these principles to heal from his childhood trauma and summit Africa's Mt. Kilimanjaro at 60.

    Episode 18: Career Pivots - Jason Mikell's journey from working as a Recruiter to being a TV Anchor/Meteorologist

    You might think that working as a recruiter and being a TV anchor-meteorologist have nothing in common, but today’s guest, Jason Mikell, is here to prove us wrong. Jason worked as a recruiter for several years before pursuing his meteorology passion and becoming an on-air TV meteorologist. In today’s episode, Jason shares insights into this transition and how he went from planning the pivot to putting it into action. There is a fine balance between planning and getting stuck in analysis paralysis, which is why it is important to put things in motion. We talk about how Jason keeps growing professionally, the importance of being open to learning, and how to communicate your value. Seeing that Jason was a former recruiter, we couldn’t resist picking his brain about some questions on the topic, like how to interview for a high-profile career, what you can do to stand out in the job market, and some top networking tips. Tune in to hear it all!
