I love everything about this show and look forward to new episodes. As an Executive Coach I'm taking mental notes about how to elevate my practice and appreciate the candid discussions. Thanks to the whole team for producing such soulful pieces. XOXO
An invitation to clarity
I’m struck by the way Colonna’s heart language leads guests out of their professional/resume speak into the deeper actualities of what is going on in their life circumstances. He has helped me do the same in almost every episode. My favorite podcast discovery of 2019.
My favorite episode of Reboot Podcast
Re: Reboot Extra #5 – Women’s Conversations: Making Space for Your Own Truth. This conversation was so refreshing and real. I enjoyed every minute of it. I would love to dive into more detail of women's experiences in the workplace and what are these "common experiences" that we often feel so alone in, or seem too "taboo" to discuss publicly. I loved hearing about the book recommendation for "The Little Girl Who Gave Zero F^cks". What a beautiful story?! And I've been thinking about not giving my f*ks away needlessly every day since. I want to hear more specific stories of how women rise together. And stories of how female leaders have turned around from an experience of resentment to an experinence fulfillment. What were the things that needed to shift to get there? And being a working parent and any examples from ANYONE that feels like they're managing that well. Please do tell. More! More! More! More smart and honest discussions like this, please.
