    S2 - 23 - Breathing training from Lesley

    S2 - 23 - Breathing training from Lesley

    In this episode, Lesley takes the lead and walks Rod, and you listeners, through breathing training.  Inhale 1 - 2 - 3; hold 1 - 2 - 3; exhale 1 - 2 - 3....
    Rod asks the newbie questions, following Lesley's expert guidance to a calmer amygdala.  


    A note to our faithful listeners... Rod and Lesley are taking a mid-season 2 intermission and will be back in a couple of months.

    S2 - 22 - From cognitive dissonance to harmonic resonance

    S2 - 22 - From cognitive dissonance to harmonic resonance

    In this episode, Rod and Lesley dig deep into the vault of 1950s psychology experiments to talk about Cognitive Dissonance.  This is a term is used to describe the mental discomfort that results from holding two conflicting beliefs, values, or attitudes. Rod and Lesley relate real examples of when this comes up, and how to spot these uncomfortable dissonance feelings - which is the first step into dealing with them.

    S2-21 - Talking biases

    S2-21 - Talking biases

    In this episode, Rod and Lesley talk about their favourite biases.  No, ones they like that we have, silly.  The ones they think are worth knowing more about so we can start to overcome them.  They discuss biases in recognition of March 8 and international women's day. The conversation gets into understanding micro aggressions, types on how to talk about them, and a recognition that we all have more to learn!

    S2 - 20 - Sometimes the easy to believe stuff, is just plain misleading

    S2 - 20 - Sometimes the easy to believe stuff, is just plain misleading

    In this episode, Rod and Lesley discuss the change adoption curve (The innovation adoption curve).  This is part two of two in the mini series that takes on well known models and helps you know their misinterpretations.
    The upside-down-U-bell-shaped curve that is taught ubiquitously through many change management courses. It is Rod's turn to go through a commonly known concept by those in the change field, and widely heard of term by everyone else - and bash it apart!  Yes, it is intuitive to think there are early adopters to something, and there are laggards, or change resistors too.  Listen to hear why this leads you down the wrong path and why not to take simple models too far.

    S2 - 19 - Is it the 80/20 rule or the 20/80 rule?

    S2 - 19 - Is it the 80/20 rule or the 20/80 rule?

    In this episode, Rod and Lesley talk about something we all thought we knew - but were (mostly) wrong!  Many of us have heard about the 80/20 rule.  But, as Lesley will explain, it is really the 20/80 rule.  And the origin was based on the idea that 20 percent effort leads to 80 percent of the outcome.  This episode is the first of a mini series of two where your fearless hosts take on simple models that have lost their way and lead people to wrong ideas.  Next week... the 'Change Curve'... from adopters to resisters.
