    Understanding and Dealing with Anxiety

    Understanding and Dealing with Anxiety

    I have an important topic to cover this week that I think many of us are feeling right now or have felt at some point during this pandemic: anxiety. Most of us blow right by anxiety and right into behaviors, denying those feelings, or avoiding the work to process it. I'm going to challenge you to notice where anxiety has showed up in your life right now. Then I'll share how to better understand your anxiety and work through it.

    Holding Space For Others and Making Amends

    Holding Space For Others and Making Amends

    This week, I want to talk about how we can hold space for others, widen our perspective of what others are going through, and not allow our ego to make quick judgments right now. I also want to discuss how we can make what I call repair attempts (AKA: mulligans, do-overs, making amends!) when we screw up.

Love this podcast!

Such great advice and I love that it centers around one point - the ego. Once you figure out how ego drives negativity and negative results, everything changes. Cy is great and so easy to relate to. Thank you Cy!

Ego is not your Amigo

If you have drama in your work or personal life and don’t know how to deal.... plug in and listen up. Simple, effective, and why didn’t I think of that?! It will change how you see your world and the world others present to you. Self reflection, making positive choices and toggling up when you want to have your own pity party. Pack up the drama and live a better life! Cy will help you work through it. I learn something with every episode.

Legendary leaders!

Cy and her stellar guests shine the brightest of lights on what it means to be a leader! Bold, insightful, and engaging are just a few of the words I’d use to describe the time you’ll spend with them. You’ll get tons of actionable advice and tangible tips, but you’ll also get heaps of inspiration from truly engaging individuals that have been where you are and want to see you succeed. Thanks for putting out such a superb show Cy - keep up the great work!
