    Episode 10 – Leaders Driving Culture Change

    Episode 10 – Leaders Driving Culture Change

    In my work with clients, I often hear people say, “how can I motivate this person to do what they’re supposed to? They’re lazy. They’re unmotivated.” The truth is people are always motivated. They’re just not always motivated to do what YOU want them to do.



    In this episode, Judy and her guest, Tara Gregor, founder and CEO of Breakwell, a resource hub for holistic wellness discuss a very different and highly effective approach to motivation. Old models and external motivation tactics simply don't work anymore. So, if those don't work, what does? Tune in to this podcast to learn a new approach.

    Episode 8 – If Not Punishment, Then What?

    In this episode, Judy and her guest, Christen Schweizer, Manager of Application Development at Esse Health discuss Redirecting Negative Behavior. What is negative behavior, what causes it, how do we typically react to it, and what are more productive ways we could respond in the face of it. While negative behavior includes conflict, it includes much more than conflict. This is a rich topic and this episode is something of an overview -- with several additional episodes on this topic in the near future.

    Episode 7 – Game Changing Appreciative Inquiry

    Join Judy and her guest, Lisa Dean from Esse Health, as they discuss a powerful and often unknown communication tool called Appreciative Inquiry. Appreciative Inquiry is asking questions that are appreciative in nature in order to cause intentional outcomes. Using an Appreciative Inquiry approach, managers and peers help themselves and team members refocus their thinking from catastrophizing to possibility thinking. And, that shift helps organizations rally to be part of solutions that result in hope as individuals and as groups.
