    141: Brain-Based Cultural Awareness with Coach, Cindy Schmelzenbach

    141: Brain-Based Cultural Awareness with Coach, Cindy Schmelzenbach

    “Real cultural awareness and real cultural sensitivity comes with recognizing that no matter how much I know, especially how much I know cognitively know about something, I never know everything about another person, culture, or way of seeing things.” – Cindy S.
    On this episode, coach and author, Cindy Schmelzenbach shares her passion for embracing the beauty of differences and the value of cultivating cultural competence. Beyond exploring the natural bias that we all bring to relationships as humans, Cindy dives deep into brain-based awareness that allows us to:
    Cultivate grace as we understand natural survival brain responses
    Approach relationships with humility, wonder, and less judgment
    Develop new neural pathways once we recognize our bias
    Expand our connections and embrace differences as wholeness
    Are you ready to show up curious to this courageous conversation? If so, take a few moments to download the FREE REALIFE Needs and Values Assessment as you go deeper in awareness of how you’re personally coming to the conversation!
    After the episode, take a few moments to consider these reflection questions from “Different Like Me: Field Notes from a Cross-Cultural Coach” by Cindy Schmelzenbach:
    What is the impact for me when I consider that my response to “different” may be rooted primarily in a biological default?
    What can I do to more consciously challenge and choose my evaluation of that which is unfamiliar to me?
    How can I partner with clients to empower them to make choices that transcend their biological default processes?
    What does this understanding do to my tendency toward judgement?
    How does this understanding of default processes impact my clients who are constantly in multi- cultural environments where “difference” is a constant factor?
    What am I motivated to do in order to expand my view of the world and its varying people and cultures? as a badge of honor?

    140: Am I Resting or Just Being Lazy?

    140: Am I Resting or Just Being Lazy?

    Are you tired of wearing busyness as a badge of honor?
    “It takes courage to say yes to rest and play in a culture where exhaustion is seen as a status symbol.” - Brené Brown.
    When it comes to rest, there are all kinds of messages we attach to the practice. Some of them are positive and others negative–the stories we tell ourselves are crafted from our upbringing, our current environment, and our own personal choices and experiences.
    On this episode, Erica Vinson, one of our REALIFE Process Coaches and Chief People Officer, is back to have a conversation with me about resting vs. laziness. Together we’ll discuss:

    139: What’s Your Type? [REPLAY]

    139: What’s Your Type? [REPLAY]

    This week, we’re going back to the very beginning of the podcast to replay one of our most listened to episodes. You could say this content has been “foundational” to the podcast, which is fitting, because the tool of the Enneagram is foundational to the work we facilitate with clients as they’re discovering their most authentic self, through the first component of the REALIFE Process®.
    The Enneagram is a tool or map for transformation. It offers us access to our most authentic self and helps us to identify adaptive patterns in our behavior as well as motivations behind the ways we act, feel, think, and react.
    As we dive in together, we’ll start with a big picture view and explore each of the three centers of intelligence–the Head (Types 5,6,7), Heart (Types 2,3,4), and Body (Types 8,9,1) Centers. Each of our home types sits in one of these three centers, but through the Harmony Triad Model have access to the other two centers.
    We’ve created a FREE Enneagram in Your REALIFE Typing Guide Resource you’ll want to download to companion our journey together with this amazing tool!
    So, let’s get right to the question, “What’s Your Type?”

John’s passion for helping others discover their true purpose and exactly how to get there will inspire you to take action today!
    Listen in to this great conversation as John shares:
    What do you do when you recognize you’re suffering from “smoldering discontent”? The cost of living under the tyranny of “they” The power of embracing each day as a second chance Practical ways to pivot and live each day more fully REALIFE Resources
