    E322 | A Better Way to Organize Your Thoughts: Part 1

    E322 | A Better Way to Organize Your Thoughts: Part 1

    You have to admit, it happens a lot.  You’ll be doing something mundane and BOOM, an amazing idea hits you that you’ll want to remember for later.  Only you don’t, and all of that potential slips away…  
    The amount of books that go unwritten, keynote speeches undelivered, businesses or products not developed - the list is endless.  High-performers recognize the power of capturing these thoughts and have a system for seizing and converting them into something tangible that can add value to the world and change people’s lives. 
    As with any topic, before you can figure out how to make it the most applicable to you, we must start from the beginning.  In this podcast we discuss:
    How capturing ideas can reduce cognitive load
    Developing a flexible structure that doesn’t stifle your personality 
    Tips for organizing thoughts and ideas so you can recall them when the time is right
    The many benefits of using voice memos that you’ve probably never considered before
    We created this episode from the overwhelming number of responses we had to our episode with Andrew Coates on Information Overload.  If you’d like us to continue this series, or have suggestions or questions you’d like covered in a future episode, let us know at artofcoaching.com/question.  
    If you struggle with turning your ideas into actions we offer virtual one to one mentoring to tailor our services to best fit your needs, on your schedule!  Take the next step by emailing us at info@artofcoaching.com.  We can’t wait to hear from you!
    Compiling thoughts and organizing them into a well-crafted message is the essence of public speaking.  We’ll walk you through this process step-by-step, give you the reps you need to refine your message, and specific feedback through a research-backed evaluation at our only Speaker School of the year June 1st & 2nd in Phoenix, AZ.  Whether you’d like to keynote and develop a speaking career or just get better being in front of people, this event is a MUST.  If you have any questions and want to find out if this, or any of our other  live events are for you, reach out at info@artofcoaching.com and we’ll figure out how we can help.

    E321 | Practical Strategies for Setting and Managing Expectations

    E321 | Practical Strategies for Setting and Managing Expectations

    "What a letdown! I expected more…"
    We’ve all felt this way when something fails to meet our expectations.  It’s one thing if it’s a product we bought off Amazon or an over-hyped movie, but what if it’s something bigger?  What if a misstep in communication hurts us professionally or negatively impacts a personal relationship?  
    Today’s episode is your how-to, practical guide to setting and managing expectations.  If done well, we can preemptively address potential misunderstandings and conflicts and allocate more of our resources where we need them most.  
    Over the course of this episode, we’ll discuss:
    The reasons setting expectations is critical from a psychological standpoint
    Practical steps to earn trust with new colleagues 
    Aspects to consider when establishing new boundaries in a personal relationship
    Speaking points you can use tomorrow with your team to jumpstart buy-in
    This episode was directly inspired by questions submitted by our listeners.  If you’d like to submit a topic for us to cover in a future episode, visit artofcoaching.com/question.  If you want a deeper dive into anything we do or want hands-on guidance on a personal issue, we offer live events and virtual one-to-one mentoring.  For options email us at info@artofcoaching.com - we’d love to help!

    E319 | Taylor Somerville: Stress Management for High-Achievers

    E319 | Taylor Somerville: Stress Management for High-Achievers

    We’ve heard it all before.  Stay calm. Relax. Carve out some time for yourself.
    But let’s face it - stress is part of the human condition. Is there anything we can realistically do to manage this force that has the potential to wreak havoc on our lives?
    Our guest today has fought this battle and emerged a better version of himself.  Taylor Somerville spent 15 years in the investment business, but the stress and anxiety of it left him deep in burnout .  So, he left that all behind, and in 2018 he founded Symmetry, a company that helps organizations, athletes, and individuals across multiple spectrums improve their own stress management, performance, and overall health and wellness.  
    In today’s episode, we discuss:
    What it takes to pivot in your career 
    How to find your audience and cultivate your niche
    Strategies and tools to harness the power of breathwork
    How reframing can be a powerful tool for stress management

Grow With Garcia ,

Great content and super helpful for anyone’s growth journey

I've just wrapped up the latest episode, and I must say, this podcast is a breath of fresh air. It's rare to find a show that not only delivers top-notch information but also presents it in such a polished yet approachable manner. Each episode is a treasure trove of insights, meticulously researched and thoughtfully laid out, making complex concepts accessible to everyone. What sets this podcast apart, however, is its gritty realism. It doesn't shy away from the tough, uncomfortable topics. Instead, it tackles them head-on, with honesty and integrity, which I believe is invaluable. This approach resonates deeply with me, making the learning process not just educational but profoundly relatable.
The hosts have a unique talent for storytelling, blending expertise with personal anecdotes that make you feel like you're part of a conversation rather than a lecture. It's this balance of professionalism and personal touch that has me hooked. The episodes are well-paced, with just the right mix of depth and digestibility, ensuring that you come away feeling enlightened, not overwhelmed. The production quality, too, deserves a shout-out. Crisp, clear sound, and just the right amount of editing make for a seamless listening experience.
In closing, I cannot recommend this podcast highly enough. It's clear that a lot of heart and hard work goes into each episode, and it doesn't go unnoticed. To the team behind the scenes, your efforts are greatly appreciated. I eagerly await what's next and am excited to continue this journey of learning and discovery with you. Keep up the fantastic work!

Be ready to be challenged

Brett does a great job of hosting a wide range of industry leaders from all walks of life to discuss effective communication. If you a true life long learner you will find value in this podcast. If you have read his book, this is a great companion to dive deeper. If you hadn’t read his book what are you waiting for?
Bottom line if you want to become a better leader/communicator this is the place for you!
