    The Secrets You Need to Know to Create Your Dream Life with Kristina Karlsson

    The Secrets You Need to Know to Create Your Dream Life with Kristina Karlsson

    I am so excited to kick off the new year with an amazing guest, Kristina Karlsson. Kristina is the founder of Dream Life Store and the global Swedish design and stationery brand, Kikki K. She is also the author of the book, "Your Dream Life Starts Here," and is on a mission to inspire 101 million people to dream big and make their dreams happen.
    Kristina shares her personal journey of manifesting her dreams and provides incredible insights and actionable tips for creating your own dream life. Her story is so inspiring, and I hope it encourages you to take the necessary steps towards turning your dreams into reality.
    Kristina's path to manifesting her dream life started at the age of 23 when she moved from Sweden to Australia. She was feeling lost and unsure about her future. One sleepless night, she asked her partner, Paul, for guidance on what she should do with her life. He suggested that she write down what was important to her.
    On that list, Kristina discovered that she wanted to drive to work every day and love it. She also wanted to have her own business, work with Swedish design, have a connection with Sweden, and have the flexibility to be there for her family when needed. She even added a dream of having her life in both countries. These dreams seemed impossible at the time, but Kristina has gone on to achieve every single one of them.
    Coming through a very challenging time when Kikki-K was taken into voluntary administration not once, but twice during Covid, Kristina Karlsson shared openly about how the power of walking in nature, meditation and journaling helped her through. 
    I left this conversation feeling empowered to start my own list of dreams to bring into 2024, and I hope you do too.

    2024 Released: The Art of Choice in Shaping Your Year

    2024 Released: The Art of Choice in Shaping Your Year

    Happy New Year! At the beginning of this brand new chapter, I want to share some inspiring insights today about the art of choice in shaping your year. So often we start the year out strong with new goals and dreams, and then once life has settled back to normal, we return to our old habits. I believe that it doesn’t have to be this way because you always have a choice about how you live your life. 
    In this episode, I share the story of one of my clients who juggled so many responsibilities that she ended up neglecting herself and feeling overwhelmed. Each year, she would write down all the things she wanted to do for herself, but inevitably her goals fell by the wayside. 
    Much like my client, many people in this situation struggle because they lose connection with their values and they lack firm boundaries. If you say yes to everyone and everything, you’re left overwhelmed and disconnected from yourself. Trying to please everyone and living out of alignment with your values is exhausting and unsatisfying. Life is too short for this! 
    As we enter 2024, I want to remind you that you have a choice in how you shape your year. Although life doesn't always go according to plan, being crystal clear about who you are, your values, and how you want to experience the year makes it easier to anchor yourself and take meaningful steps towards a life you love. Don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone, make difficult decisions, and establish new routines. Embrace saying no when necessary and focus on what truly matters to you.
    This journey isn’t about neglecting your responsibilities or relationships; it's about creating a legacy you're proud of. Every day, you have the power to shape your own legacy and make choices aligned with your goals and dreams. Cherish each moment, find joy in every season of life, and prioritise your happiness. Remember, you can't please everyone, and trying to do so will only hinder your own progress and fulfilment.
    After listening to this episode, I invite you to take a moment to reflect on how you want this year to be. Write down your dreams and aspirations, and choose three things to focus on. Take these three things and break them down into bite-sized pieces, so you can conquer small tasks that lead to greater goals. Remember, building new habits and achieving goals is a process that requires commitment, but it is well worth the effort.

    Steering Through the Storm True to You with Leah Mether

    Steering Through the Storm True to You with Leah Mether

    In times of uncertainty, effective leadership becomes essential. The ability to navigate storms, whether personal or professional, requires resilience, empathy, and a real focus on communication. My guest today is Leah Mether, a renowned speaker, trainer, and author, who joins me to share her insights on leading through challenging times. We dive deep into her experiences and expertise to explore the strategies and mindset required to successfully guide teams and oneself through storms.
     
    In this episode, we dive into some of the wisdom Leah writes about in her book, Steer Through The Storm. And let me tell you, the strategies Leah shares have been tried and tested in her own life. During our conversation, Leah candidly shares how she approached her marriage separation and divorce with love, kindness and compassion as her anchor. 
     
    We talk about the importance of leaders recognising their responsibility to steer their teams through change, not just initiating the change. Even if the change is not within their control, leaders must guide their teams, providing support, empathy, and clear communication. This is what true leadership is. 
     
    Furthering this topic, we also spoke about the significance of balancing empathy and accountability. Understanding how humans instinctively respond to change is crucial. By expecting resistance and acknowledging the varied emotional reactions, leaders can create a safe space for open dialogue. Curiosity, rather than anger, can help leaders understand the fears and concerns of their team members.
     
    Toward the end of the episode, Leah shares a powerful insight which drives home the importance of long-term thinking. She shares how asking yourself what you want to be known for helps to create a touchstone that you can come back to during challenging times. As leaders, doing this helps us to rise above the momentary difficulties and envision the future we want to build.
     
    Change is inevitable but how we as leaders choose to navigate it is what sets us apart. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

    Resilience Recipes That Work for Your Wellbeing with Fleur Heazelwood

    Resilience Recipes That Work for Your Wellbeing with Fleur Heazelwood

    In our fast-paced and demanding world, finding ways to prioritise our well-being can often feel like a challenge.
    In this episode, we dive into this problem with the incredible Fleur Heazelwood, a leadership expert, founder of the Blueberry Institute, and author of Resilience Recipes. She shares her journey in the corporate world, the lessons she learned from it, and the wisdom she has gained further studying resilience. 
    Fleur doesn’t like the traditional notion of work-life balance and proposes a more holistic approach to well-being. She emphasizes that our lives should not be divided into separate compartments, but rather, we should view it as one interconnected whole. By considering work as just one piece of the larger puzzle of life, we can find a better balance that aligns with our priorities and values.
    Fleur believes that resilience is a skill set that can be developed. She discussed the importance of emotional agility, mental adaptability, and optimizing energy as key components of building resilience. By understanding our strengths and weaknesses in these areas, we can create a personalised resilience recipe that suits our unique needs.
    Fleur emphasised the role of leaders in fostering workplace well-being. She highlighted the importance of leaders prioritising their well-being first to be able to support their teams effectively. Fleur's second book focuses on how leaders can create a high-performing team by introducing conversations around mental health and cultivating a supportive team environment.
    I know you’ll love this conversation with Fleur and her insights into prioritizing well-being and incorporating resilience into our daily lives. Enjoy!

    The 8 Types of Busy and Why You Need to Know Yours

    Thank you for joining me today as we delve into a topic that I am so passionate about – busyness. It's amazing how much time we can waste being busy and how it often consumes our lives. As a leadership coach and author, I have encountered countless clients who struggle with this issue. In fact, it is one of the most common resolutions people make at the start of each year – to stop being so busy.
    In this episode, I share with you the 8 different types of busy that I have identified and which I discuss in my book, You Always Have a Choice. By understanding how you do busy, you’ll be able to gain the self-awareness needed to break free from the vortex of busyness.
    The 8 Types of Busy:
    The Comfort Zoner The Dramatic The Badge of Honour The Disorganised The Snapper FOMO The Control Freak The People Pleaser Any of these look familiar to you? Well, if you’re like me, you might resonate with more than one at any given time. I’ll take you through each type of busy and discuss the patterns and behaviours that often come with it. I encourage you to embrace strategies such as delegation, saying no when necessary and prioritising self-care to combat the effects of your type of busy. 
    So, take a moment to reflect on your own busy habits and start making small changes today. Remember, nothing changes unless you change it!

    A Lady on a Mission to Give All Australian Women Dignity with Rochelle Courtenay

    A Lady on a Mission to Give All Australian Women Dignity with Rochelle Courtenay

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like to not have access to basic sanitary items during your period? Unfortunately for many women in Australia facing homelessness, this is an awful reality, and one that is often overlooked by the wider society. 
    In this episode, I sit down with Rochelle Courtenay, AKA ‘Pad Lady’, who is on a mission to give all Australian women dignity. Throughout our conversation, Rochelle shares what inspired the noble cause of providing homeless women with sanitary items. She talks about the force of the campaign she led to remove GST from all period products in Australia, and encourages us to use our own voices to make a positive change in our world. 
    Rochelle is the founder and managing director of Share the Dignity, a national charity founded in 2015 with the mission to ensure that everyone is afforded the dignity in life that so many of us take for granted. She has received numerous accolades for her work, including Finalist of Australian of the Year, Cosmopolitan Humanitarian of the Year and Pride of Australia. With her charity drive It’s In The Bag, Rochelle and her network of volunteers have now collected 4.4 million packets of period products for disadvantaged women. 
    We hear about Rochelle’s own childhood being plagued with domestic violence, and how this has given her the empathy and insight into the struggles of the women she aims to support. We discuss the importance of breaking down the stigma surrounding menstruation and creating a supportive environment for all women.
    While Rochelle’s drive and ability to make a difference in women’s lives is awe-inspiring, she attributes the success of her efforts to the power of teamwork. This made itself abundantly clear when on 1 January 2019, with over 100,000 signatures on a federal petition led by Rochelle, the government removed GST from all period products in Australia.
    Rochelle’s story is incredibly moving, and I know you’ll find her an inspiration as you endeavour to make your world a better place. So join me today and hear how you can take action, raise your voice and be a part of ending period poverty.
