    Quotes by Parissa Behnia:
    “A 3D leader is difficult, dismissive, divisive. They are high-value, high performers, have high positions in an organization, but because of being that 3D leader, they are starting to diminish their value.”
    “Empathy means that we are looking to find out what is driving the behavior of these 3D leaders.”
    “In times of stress, the dark sides of our personalities always come out. But it’s also sometimes the dark sides that help us be super productive and get the results that we’re looking for.”

    Episode 44: A Created Life, with Danusia Malina-Derben

    Excuses are always available.
    And yet there are people who just go for it in life. They have a spark about them. A knack of creating a big, juicy life, not just reacting to a never-ending to-do list.
    Danusia Malina-Derben, is one such woman. She's an entrepreneur, academic, and organizational behavior and development expert. Oh, and she's a mum of ten.
    She's also the host of the School for Mothers and School for Fathers podcasts, and the author of two forthcoming books in 2021. 
    I asked Danusia to share about being brave and handling her insidious inner critic.
    How does Danusia set and accomplish unreasonable goals?
    How does she live a created life on her OWN terms?
    Our conversation covers:
    Changing your inner critic's diet (SO good!) Why unreasonable goals and falling on your face is necessary Doing vs Being How do you play the cards of failure when you're on your face? The power of a bold request - you can't get what you don't ask for Grab your cuppa and join us!

    Episode 43: How to Lead From Behind, with Kelly Wendorf

    Episode 43: How to Lead From Behind, with Kelly Wendorf

    As the world grapples with Covid-19, deep presence and the ability to create a sense of calm and groundedness feel more important than ever in leadership.
    I'm not just talking about VIP's in the business world. I'm talking about self-leadership too.
    Today's guest says a leader is someone entrusted with holding the heart of an endeavour or a family. It's someone who inspires us "to hold each other well." (I mean, how beautiful is that?)
    Kelly Wendorf is a coach, mother, spiritual mentor and founding partner of Equus, an 11-acre experiential learning & discovery campus in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Horses are co-facilitators in their work at the ranch, and much of Kelly's wisdom on leadership has emerged from her life-long observations of the horse herd, a 56-million-year-old system.
    Kelly's also the author of the forthcoming book, Flying Lead Change, published by Sounds True this autumn.
    In this episode, we discuss:
    What it means to lead from behind  Leadership the equine way - tapping into the wisdom of the horse herd Qualities to base your own leadership on What if I don't see myself as charismatic, or having any X-factor? How can I lead? How checking in with your body can change how you plan your diary (and your life) Join us (and alpha horse, Artemis).

    Quotes by Kelly Wendorf:
    “I love to create conditions for people to have transformative experiences and change their lives.”
    “The qualities I trust and I look for, both in myself and in those who I trust to lead, are curiosity, vulnerability, porousness.”
    “These are qualities that are much more powerful because they draw people in.”
    “Be deeply present with what is—our feelings, who we are, our circumstances. That is a powerful spiritual practice.”

    Episode 42: How to Receive, with April Boyd

    Episode 42: How to Receive, with April Boyd

    Ever run yourself ragged hosting a party, and yet DECLINED offers of help (while seething silently)?
    Or maybe you agreed to watch a friend's gaggle of unruly kids for the weekend (while your own bandwidth and energy were already non-existent), and yet declined her offer to reciprocate next weekend.
    You have a huge portal for giving, and a teeny pinhole for receiving. 
    Sound familiar?
    And if so, what the heck is going on there? 
    Today's guest, April Boyd, a psychotherapist, says not receiving can be a way of protecting yourself in relationships.
    After a traumatic event in her own life, April learned that receiving help - and even more, ASKING for it - was riddled with complexity.
    She says it's vulnerable to receive. Asking for help is even more of a challenge. And yet, declining it blocks connection.
    If you regularly utter, "No, it's fine, I've got this," this episode will help you get better at saying, "Thank you, that would be really great."
    We discuss:
    Why receiving feels risky How to determine if you want to receive help from this person How to ask for what you want (without getting all cringey and awkward) Noticing your auto-response to offers of support Self-Check: How often do YOU give when you don’t actually have the bandwidth? HINT: This matters! The role of shame in receiving Ready to receive more (and seethe less)?

    Quotes by April Boyd:
    “One of the things that makes receiving so much harder than giving is it’s actually a really vulnerable place to be.”
    “We have this culture that really encourages us to wear that badge of honor of being so independent and not needing anyone, and being able to do it all. That’s a myth.”
    “How often do you say ‘yes’ when you really mean ‘no’?”
    “Recognize that the guilt is just often a built-in part of this process.”

    Today’s guest is Alexis Artin, owner of a globally renowned female empowerment company who’s on a mission to help women connect with their bodies.
    Before you do a U-turn Gents, this episode isn’t just for women. There’s some real insight here for you too…
    We discuss:

    “I really wear so many hats in my life. My friends refer to me, jokingly, as the Forrest Gump of the Feminine.”
    “What are the three worst words that a man can hear from a woman? ‘We gotta talk.’”
    “It is inherently dangerous to be in a feminine body. Being in a feminine body, life is the ultimate resource and that’s what the feminine is, she’s the source of life.”
    “Feminine Experience of Life: When a woman is in that experience, it’s pleasureful, and that pleasure is magnetic.”

Perfect way to start my day

So far every Moxie Cast I've heard (I'm up to 6) has inspired me, made me think, lit me up, and generally, been a very self-loving way to start my day. Exceptional insights, practical tools, articulate and authentic guests, goofy humor, and Mandy! She is smart AF, funny, cool and real. I'm loving this.

Good insights

I got some great insights into the morning moxiecast to provide some actions for the rest of the day. It good to pause and read/listen even just for 5 minutes to get an uplift for the day.
