    Finding Your Flow - Dynamo Energy

    Finding Your Flow - Dynamo Energy

    Do you ever feel like you just wish you had more energy to get through your day? You’ve had the life sucked of you and you're reaching for the fridge, or the worst type of thing, to help pick you up?

    Understanding your natural flow, and the flow of those around you, can help you stay out of that downward spiral. This is especially true for leaders who are constantly dealing with teams of conflicting energies.

    We’ve dedicated 5 podcasts to flow and the energies behind it. This is part 2 of our series.

    Part 1: Profile Tests: Finding Your Flow in Business explored several different personality profiling tools, the pros and cons of using them in business and why we use one that we do, Wealth Dynamics (spoiler alert - because it was built for business and leaders).

    Today’s episode is dedicated to understanding and identifying “Dynamo” energy.

    Self discovery seems to be built into our DNA. We are innately curious about ourselves. Join in today’s conversation to learn more about how -when used well- profile tests can help you transform old patterns, find your flow, build kick-ass teams and more.

    Feeling Stuck? Lead from Your Future Self

    Feeling Stuck? Lead from Your Future Self

    Is your future filled with infinite possibilities? Or are you creating a future based on your past? What is the difference, and how can you know?

    So often we have an ideal, a vision of how our lives could be, and we wake each morning into the hamster wheel that is our lives. No space for that big goal we set at the beginning of January, no time to put towards who we know we could be.

    In today’s podcast Stephanie and Maren talk about the realities BEHIND getting what you most want in your life and becoming the person you dream you could be. They share great examples like the caterpillar who has no idea it’s destined to become a butterfly, blunt talk about everything that comes up between you and the goals you set, AND several practical tools - which makes today’s episode one you’ll want to bookmark.

    If you’re tired of the trudge and you’re ready to invite some magic into your life and leadership (yes, leaders can have magical lives, too), listen in - and then let us know your favorite part!

    Beyond Resolutions: Breaking the Blame-Shame Game

    Beyond Resolutions: Breaking the Blame-Shame Game

    This time of year feels like a fresh start, a reset, an opportunity to recreate ourselves, and then we hit a wall, make a mistake or get side swiped by life and everything slows down (or comes to a screeching halt). We start doubting ourselves, shaming ourselves and blaming ourselves, our situations and others.,

    As with all things, there is another option. It’s just we’re so convinced that we’re alone in our ‘I didn’t so what I said I’d do’ narrative that we stay stuck, we get paralyzed and go back to the habits we know, resolutions and goals can wait until next year.

    Did you know that not shaming and not blaming is an actual practice? 

    This toxic, hidden subject is what Stephanie and Maren bring into the open on today’s podcast. They talk bluntly about how internalizing blame and shame starts a downward spiral, how leadership starts by ending the shame cycle in oneself and how each of us can shift our own narrative to become better instead of bitter.

    Some of the highlights of today’s episode are the wonderful Sufi teaching story, leadership lessons from the show The Bear and the questions about living in a friendly or unfriendly universe.

    Planning with Your Inner GPS

    Planning with Your Inner GPS

    What is a plan? A way to make God laugh? A way to ensure you won’t fail? 

    We have so many contradictory thoughts (and sayings) about planning it makes us wonder, is it important? And is it possible to create a plan that doesn’t come from a figuring, forcing, or fixing place?

    This is the rich, and timely topic that Stephanie and Maren discuss in today’s podcast.

    So often we set our goals and then get so busy pushing to make something happen, we stop listening to what actually wants to happen, to our guidance. We’re head down, butt up, missing the left turn that would have resulted in an even more beautiful option. Or the focus backfires and we find ourselves in a bad country song - sick, spouse leaving and losing the house. 

    There really IS a better way to do goal achievement, and there are very few people who are talking about it. You actually can have your goal, be healthy and keep your spouse and house. It’s just not how you thought it would look.
