Have you ever worked on a team going through a lot of change?

I’m guessing you have many times and in many different scenarios. I’m also guessing your experience of that change had a lot to do with the level of trust that the team had for one another and the leaders of the team and/or organization.

When there is a high level of trust the impacts of the change are softened. When there is low trust change can be traumatic.

Clearly, we want to work in teams that have high trust but if that’s not the current condition, how do we get there? To answer that question I’ve asked Malia Monaco to join me for this episode.  

In this episode Malia and I talk about:

·         The work that Malia does for leaders and organizations through Positive Intelligence involving change management and trust building.

·         What it takes to build trust in teams and what becomes possible when trust grows.

·         Why it’s important to get to the root of the problem rather than tackling the symptoms, which is where many organizational initiatives go wrong.

·         How our belief system will shape what we see around us and determine whether we bring harsh judgment or blameless discernment to our reactions.

·         While insights are important, they only make up 20% of sustainable long-lasting change what makes up the other 80%.

Corporate wellness programs are very common now but how effective are they?

Many people talk about what their company offer but when you dig in many of these programs are underutilized. The reasons, and they vary, include the programs don’t fit the demographics of the organization, there’s a lack of awareness of what the company offers, lack of accessibility to the programs.

I recently met a consultant who had a fresh take on corporate wellness and I asked her to have a conversation with me to give you an opportunity to think about your own wellness programs, if your company offers one, and if it’s meeting the needs of the entire organization, especially yours.

Meet Tawn Williams

A renowned leader in the wellness space, Tawn Williams is a wellness consultant, speaker, and leadership development expert. She currently functions as the CEO and Head Holistic Experience Curator at House of Anaya, a platform she founded to help people access tools for wellness. One of only a handful of women of color in the corporate wellness consulting space, Tawn holds over 20 years of industry experience, having worked with international leadership teams at Intel, Avnet, and BRP. Tawn uses her unique lens and extensive background to help design corporate and individual wellness plans that feel holistic, personal, and inclusive.

In this episode Tawn and I discuss:

  • Why, despite corporate wellness programs being a $53 billion dollar industry, burnout and stress continue to be at an all-time high.
  • How well thought out wellness initiative, folded into the culture give companies a strategic advantage in today's competitive recruiting landscape.
  • How effective wellness programs take into account not only physical and mental health but emotional, social, financial, and spiritual well-being.
  • Anaya Wellness’s upcoming Impact Leadership Summit and Retreat

Several weeks ago I released Ep 492 How to Release the Grip Imposter Syndrome Has on You with Kim Meninger. So many of you responded with follow-up questions that I asked Kim if she would be open to doing a Live Stream to answer questions on Imposter Syndrome.

Kim was happy to do it and we promoted that event for anyone who wanted to attend live and put a call out for question submissions from those who would not be able to attend or would like to remain anonymous.

In this episode Kim and I discuss:

  • What causes the condition of Imposter Syndrome, the consequences of its development and the ages that are most at risk.
  • How to head off an episode of Imposter Syndrome before you get triggered into a fight or flight response.
  • How to discern the difference between Imposter Syndrome and realistically not being qualified to do something.
  • How to interact with others when you are both the youngest leader in your organization and the youngest person on your team.
  • How to manage others who are experiencing Imposter Syndrome.
