    Imposter Syndrome & Finding Your Voice - with Paul Larsen

    Imposter Syndrome & Finding Your Voice - with Paul Larsen

    I really wanted to start this season off with a conversation about something that I think has a way of worming its way into almost every area of every person’s life: imposter syndrome.
    And what I love about this conversation with Paul Larsen is that he sees imposter syndrome as an inevitability for people with a growth mindset. If you’re not trying to do anything new, if you’re not trying to grow, then you’re probably not going to hear that little voice in the back of your head talking you down.
    But when you think about taking a risk, when you start a new season of your life, we start to doubt ourselves — and, really, if I’ve learned anything after 143 episodes of this show, it’s how common this is.
    When we understand that this is just a natural phenomenon that occurs in the human brain, then we can remind ourselves that we don’t need to overcome anything — it’s just a little hint that we’re growing. And Paul has some great advice for how we can start to reframe that feeling in every area of our lives.

    Community, Connection, & Conversation: Growing into Our Potential Together - with Michael Scott

    Community, Connection, & Conversation: Growing into Our Potential Together - with Michael Scott

    It’s really easy to get stuck in a rut. We get accustomed to doing the same thing day in and day out. We can close ourselves off to new thinking, perspectives, experiences, and people.
    So today, I’m sitting down with Michael Scott to talk about the winding turns of his career journey, how his breadth of experiences drove constant personal growth, and how he’s now channeling his personal passion for books to create momentum for others on a global scale through Great Books + Great Minds.

    The Tao of Self-Confidence: Imposter Syndrome, Trauma, Community, & Self-Love - with Sheena Yap Chan

    The Tao of Self-Confidence: Imposter Syndrome, Trauma, Community, & Self-Love - with Sheena Yap Chan

    This is an episode that feels very personal to me, and one I feel will be able to connect with so many others.
    My guest, Sheena Yap Chan, is The Wall Street Journal Bestselling author of “The Tao of Self-Confidence” and an award-winning podcast host who has interviewed hundreds of Asian women about their inner journey to self-confidence, which is all part of her journey to help women overcome their self-limiting beliefs and live a better life.
    When I read Sheena’s book, I appreciated her desire to bring these cultural and historical mindsets to the forefront. Too often, we inherit limiting beliefs and behaviors that hold us back, and I really saw my own experiences reflected in those pages.
    These barriers of self-confidence, imposter syndrome, trauma — these are universal challenges, and I think it’s so valuable that more people are openly talking about their experiences overcoming these roadblocks because, as Sheena shares in this episode, it’s so much harder for us to do that without community, without stories to fuel us with inspiration.
    So I hope you are inspired by Sheena’s story, and I’m thrilled that I can support her on her mission to help Asian Women live their authentic selves and create a stronger voice in the world.

    Work From the Inside Out: Fit, Fulfillment, & Sustainable Change - with Tammy Gooler Loeb

    Work From the Inside Out: Fit, Fulfillment, & Sustainable Change - with Tammy Gooler Loeb

    For a lot of us, when we feel stuck, it’s not necessarily because we don’t know what we want — it may be that we feel like we’ve invested too much time and effort to change course now, or we feel scared of stepping into uncertainty, or we feel like the step’s just too big to take given our circumstances.
    We spend so much time convincing ourselves that we’re better off feeling safe than feeling happy, but that perception is more in our heads than it is reality.
    So today, Tammy Gooler Loeb, author of “Work From the Inside Out” and host of a podcast with the same name, shares her expertise on the critical importance of introspection and self-discovery in shaping — and revealing — a meaningful, satisfying and sustainable career path. We'll explore how deep personal understanding can be a powerful driver for professional growth and success, and how we can tap into the people around us as a source of inspiration and knowledge.

    Unlearning Silence: Transforming Unconscious Inaction into Conscious Action - with Elaine Lin Hering

    Unlearning Silence: Transforming Unconscious Inaction into Conscious Action - with Elaine Lin Hering

    Today’s conversation feels really important, and it’s a topic that really struck a chord with me personally.
    Elaine Lin Hering’s book — “Unlearning Silence: How to Speak Your Mind, Unleash Talent, and Live More Fully” — really gets to the heart of how and why so many of us feel stuck in our careers and life, as well as the internal and external forces that perpetuate this feeling.
    And perhaps even more importantly, Elaine shares how we can start to move forward by identifying the unconscious actions — or inaction — that drive so many behaviors, both individually and collectively, so that we can start to make conscious choices to change our experiences, careers, and organizations to better empower everyone.
