    Becoming Unstoppable with Dr. Ronda Beaman

    Have you ever had a week where everything went wrong? It might have been an awful day or even just one challenging situation. But then the next day, something else happened to knock you down, and before you know it, your whole week has gone by in a spiral of sadness and hopelessness. You feel like nothing is going right for you--like life is out to get you. This may sound familiar to many people who are trying to balance work with their personal lives while also coping with stressors of all kinds on top of that. What if it doesn't need to be this way? That there are ways we can learn from our experiences and find resilience within ourselves so that we become unstoppable no matter what.

    In this episode, Dr. Ronda Beaman talks with Ameé about resilience and building it up in ourselves. You'll learn if you are born resilient or not, why we need more of it in the world today, what things can actually reduce your own personal level of resilience even if you already have some built up, and finally best strategies for building strength both inside yourself as well as within others around you.

    Gaslighting at Work with Dr. Stephanie Sarkis

    Gaslighting at Work with Dr. Stephanie Sarkis

    How many of you out there have ever had to deal with a co-worker or boss who has said things to you that have made you doubt yourself and wonder if you’re not going a little crazy because they are pretty convinced that the “real world” is very different from the one you are seeing or experiencing. For example, are they charming with everyone else, but controlling and demeaning towards you? Or do you have a co-worker constantly taking credit for your hard work? Do you have a boss who never admits their mistakes and puts blame on everyone else around them? 
    Gaslighting is not only a form of emotional abuse but is also recognized as a form of workplace harassment. It is manipulative, controlling, and can make our work and life experiences intolerable. Also, if you have ever experienced abuse in your life, being around these people can be retraumatizing. 
    In this episode, Ameé speaks with Dr. Stephanie Sarkis, the author of Gaslighting: Recognize Manipulative and Emotionally Abusive People – and Break Free. 
    You will hear: 
    How to recognize the signs of gaslightingHow to protect yourself at work from gaslighters, emotionally and legallyWhat a company and human resources need to have in place for reporting harassment claims like thisWho is more vulnerable to the inappropriate tactics gaslighters and manipulators useHow gaslighting can trigger past abuse trauma and PTSDHow important work culture is in establishing a true anti-harassment environmentHow important hiring is in keeping manipulative and aggressive people out of the company to begin withLinks from this episode:
