    Don’t Be Anxious

    Don’t Be Anxious

    Easier said than done! Anxiety is also seen as one of those “four-letter” words. Certain types of anxiety are good and healthy, and others are not, no big shock in that statement. In this episode we discuss the good and the bad sides of anxiety and how we’ve failed and been successful at dealing with it.

    Buddies to Boss

    Buddies to Boss

    One of the most frequent questions we get is, “Can I still be friends with the people I worked with but am now leading?” Self-awareness, emotions, favoritism and so many other things factor into this question but the bottom line is “YES” you should be able to do it, but it definitely depends on how you both handle it.

Worth your time to listen

I don’t have much spare time in my day but this podcast definitely makes my short list of things I make time to listen to! Create content, guests, and great hosts!

Refreshing, humble advice

Love this podcast! Last one I listened to touched on the ultra race RAAM. I loved that the discussion was about how teams work together and practical advice on recovery, people moments, growth and development. It was not about how awesome or amazing a RAAM rider is physically. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the athletics of doing something like that. But more importantly, what makes someone like that tick? What is important to them? What do the focus on or think about in terms of humanity. You will find content like that here. Content like that grows, informs and inspires the human condition. Keep it coming!
