"A life not felt is one that doesn't know what it needs..." In this episode of Being Human, Dr Chua Sook Ning is joined by the creator and co-developer of Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Dr. Leslie Greenberg. When Dr. Greenberg first appeared on Being Human, he talked about the wisdom of our emotions and the importance of listening to what they try to tell us. In this discussion, he shares his insights on why we often reject and recoil from what we feel, and leads Dr. Chua in a short role-play exercise that demonstrates the value of focusing on and sitting with emotions that are present.

Work in Eden and Work in Exile

Ross Tenneson Genesis 2:1-15 Work in Eden and Work in Exile Into: Good morning, church. So glad we get to open God's word together and keep walking through the book of Genesis. Last week, Pastor Sam helped us paused and meditate on the phrase, “male and female he created them.” Now we move on to the next part of the story: Sometimes, our jobs can feel pointless or toilsome. I used to manage group homes. On occasion my overnight staff would call in sick. If I couldn't find someone to replace them, I would have to be awake all night suddenly without planning on it. By the morning, I would feel more like a zombie than a human. The toil of our work we all experience prompts us to consider: Why do we work? Are our jobs a good gift God gave us or a result of the fall? We want to answer this question because we spend so much of our waking hours at work. Day after day, year after year, work takes up so much of our adult lives. The story we area walking through will help us to answer these questions. Where we left off God had just finished making humans, the crown jewel of his creation. Creating humans brought his creation to completion. Now, we get to see the first thing God does after finishing his world: Revelation: 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. Heavens and earth = the spaces God made for his creatures to inhabit. Hosts = inhabitants. Verse 2 is going to show us what finishing all these things leads God to do: 2 And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. After God creates; he rests. Rest = “cease/stop.” God stops working. Why is God resting? Is he tired? He didn't get tired! Rest is not a nap. Rather, space for intimacy w/creation and enjoying what he has accomplished. Rest can look like sleep or laying on the couch, or it can look like a holiday w/ family. This is a time to enjoy V.3 shows us more, 3 So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation. God does two things because he rests on this day: he “blessed” it and “makes it holy.” God has blessed creatures, now he blesses a day. Blessed = to fill with life. This day especially filled with the enjoyment of God's good creation. God set aside a day to enjoy what he made. “made it holy:” first time in the Bible God makes something holy. When God makes something holy, he sets a boundary around it to fill it with himself (holy ground). What's that saying about this day? On seventh day, God is sharing himself with his world, he's taking time to be fully present. What he did in creation was astounding (making everything); what he does in rest more astounding. When dad works, he does amazing things, but not as amazing as coming home and kids jumping in arms. Something missing? “and there was evening and there was morning…” Why? God designed to be an endless day. Story begins with eternal life.[1] How amazing? So much to learn here! Pastor Scott preached a sermon titled, “Sabbath.” One application: God draws clear boundaries between work and rest. One things we should learn: so should we. In our culture (partially enabled by technology), we rest when we should be working and work when we should be resting. We often escape from our work through the internet and our devices. Then, through those same devices, take work home with us in the form of email and texting. We end up not truly working and not truly resting. We neither produce great things nor feel rested. Makes life feel bluh. God sets an example by dividing work from rest as the final boundary he draws. When we let work be work and rest be rest, both our work and our rest can flourish. We can use our gifts at our jobs to accomplish much, and we can feel deeply recharged emotionally, physically, and spiritually. With that in mind, let's see how the story keeps developing from here in V. 4, 4 These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. How many of you agree this is a strange way to continue the story? That's because it is, for us. Normal for Genesis. Phrase: “these are the generations of…” repeats 11x in Genesis. Introduces new part of the story. Usually parents à children (successive generations frames the story).[2] This one is not about parents/children, rather about what God brough through the earth. In what follows, you might think: “this is a lot of Genesis 1 but from a different perspective.” Bingo. Zooms in and tells the story of the creation of humans in greater detail. It's that important. Gen 1:1–2:3 is like a global view of what God did (into). Gen 2:4 zooms in on the characters locally on the characters we will follow (chapter 1). So let's follow that story, 5 When no bush of the field was yet in the land and no small plant of the field had yet sprung up—for the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the land, and there was no man to work the ground, 6 and a mist was going up from the land and was watering the whole face of the ground— New information we have not learned yet: there are parts of the earth that are uncultivated. “field” = wilderness. Part of God's purpose is for man to cultivate it. God describes “the field” in terms similar to the earth in 1:2, “without form and void.”[3] Just as God's work consisted of forming an inhabitable place into a good home, so will man's. One clue in the story that work is a high and holy calling. First time “Lord God” in text: introduction to God's personal name as this story and what follows more personally introduces him.[4] 7 then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. “Formed” = potter.[5] God forms man from the “dust of the ground.” Hebrew for “Adam” = “Adam.” Hebrew for “ground” = “Adamah.” Deep connection. “breath of life,” like putting his mouth up to mans and breathing how own life. Deep connection.[6] Could not have humbler or higher beginnings. One hand: dirt creatures,[7] utter dependence. On other: God who spoke universe into existence personally breathed life into us. Something of both earth and heaven in humans. Bridges. We will see more of this as we go… 8 And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed. Forming his most special creature prompts God to make a special home. What a home: “Garden” = orchard.[8] “In Eden” = “the happy land.”[9] God places man there to flourish (like a plant). 9 And out of the ground the Lord God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Tree “in midst” = “tree of life.” Who gives life? God. Tree represents God's life-giving presence. Garden is also “holy” (God is sharing himself there). Garden meets human need for food and greater need for God's presence. Whether 7th day, or tree of life, story is full if pictures of God moving close to people. Dwelling not distant. Daniel will address tree of knowledge of Good and Evil in future sermon. Further pictures of a place overflowing with life: 10 A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 And the gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there. 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third river is the Tigris, which flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. God makes a river flow through Eden and his garden to water it. God's sustaining his garden. Then he creates four rivers to branch off and water the land around. God makes the life-giving power of water flow out from the garden to the lands around it.[10] The idea of life flowing out from the garden continues in verse 15: 15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. God has a purpose: to work and keep it. God is a worker who gives his highest creature a job like him. When God works in Gen 1, it's ordinary word for work.[11] God is the first worker who gives humans the gift of work; so, all work has dignity. Both humans and our work have value because God created both. Whether you have the most menial job, we tend to think of flipping burgers, or the most prestigious job, we tend to think of the CEO of fortune 500, all work has dignity. As long as it's a job that actually helps humans thrive and find life (some industries are destructive). All work has dignity, because all work is accomplishing the same thing God did at the beginning: making this planet an increasingly hospitable and good home for humanity. And that's a good thing. If you help stock shelves are target or provide research for your company, you're helping this world be a better home for people and that's a good thing. Tim Keller: “Work did not come in after a golden age of leisure. It was part of God's perfect design for human life.”[12] All those hours you spend at work are not unimportant. God has great purpose for them. Closer look at Adam's job to work and keep it: Means something along the lines of “cultivate the orchard and protect it from threats.” To what end? Seems like as Adam works and keeps garden, it will expand outward, possibly until it covers the whole world. Mandate God gives humans in 1:28 is to “fill the earth and subdue it.”[13] This seems to be a picture of how that happens: By cultivating a life-giving garden until it spreads it's life all over the world. The garden is the place where God dwells, so covering the world with the garden will cover it with the glory and presence of God. Could God have given Adam a more remarkable job? Adam is a bridge between heaven and earth and he is supposed to bring heaven to earth by spreading this garden where God is everywhere. This was God's heart and vision for work originally. Not how things remained: Adam failed to protect the garden God entrusted him from a lying serpent. It deceives him and his wife and they sin and God removes Adam and Eve from his garden and curses the ground. Garden/ground; Eden/exile. Blessing mixed with curse. Ever since Adam, toil has filled our work. Instead of just sustaining life, work saps and drains life from us. Under the curse, we not longer live in order to work, we have to work in order to live.[14] Do you ever feel beat after a day of work? And moms, just so you know, raising kids full time is included as “work.” Worst of all: sin separates worship and work from one another. In the garden, Adam's job and Adams worship are joined together. He's worshipping as he grows God's garden. In our world, many people who work do not worship the God who invented work. Also, we who follow Jesus often feel like worshipping Jesus is one thing we do over here and working is another thing. Is that the case for you? Do you wear separate work hats and worshipping Jesus hats? Who would want your job to look more like Adam's in Eden? Where worshipping God and work go hand in hand? The good news of Jesus is that he puts back together what sin breaks apart. One thing he puts together for his people are work and worship. When Jesus came, he perfect worker who worshipped God in all his work. John 4:34: 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. When he died on the cross, his words were “it is finished!” (John 19:30). He did the perfect work of rescuing rebels and remaking them into worshippers. Do you want this? The toil you feel in your life is the toil in your soul. Once Jesus rescues you, he wants to transform you from just a worker into a worshipper who works. Apostle Paul: “Whatever you do, work heartily, as if for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward.” When you follow Jesus, you are no longer working ultimately for your boss or your company, you are ultimately working for him, joining him in continuing to transform this world into a good place for humanity to live. Being godward in your thoughts and intentions is how you worship while you work. Worshipping while you work includes working hard and doing a good job at your job. Work that's below your ability level does not honor God. When you work with all your heart and become a blessing to your coworkers and your community (doing well includes being a friendly, courteous worker), I believe through God will open up new doors of conversation with coworkers and clients to talk about spiritual things: When our work transitions to worship, we should pray that God also turns our work into witness. You will really make a earth a better place for humans to live not only when you produce a good product, but turn other people from their sin to worshipping and following Jesus with you. To summarize: God invented work, and made us workers like himself, so that we could worship him through our work and become witnesses to others. When we work as worshippers and witnesses, we start to do the same work God gave Adam in the garden: bringing heaven to earth as we lead others to worship God with us.

So how is it possible that we have predictable patterns of behaving which can be generalized to others? Continuing the series focused on our new Certification, Dr. Greg, Dr. Bryan, and Amy Grace explore this question while opening up the third-level psychology course through discussion of a case vignette.  Discussed in this episode: What is a case vignette?  The impossibility of generalizing an individual's experience;  Our defenses as crystallized ways we learned to protect ourselves against pain;   The “both and” of predictable patterns of behavior and the unique, unrepeatable ways individuals display that behavior; The family as a school of love where we are meant to learn in that school;   Where does security come from? Attachment theory, and God as our ultimate secure attachment; Learning how to receive God's love in order to give it to one's children;  The importance of genuine love for one's clients in the accompaniment relationship;  How Mentorship locks in on the uniqueness of the person, even in their defenses; The danger of proposing a solution to psychological ills that does not involve the spiritual life; What's coming up next in our Certification series.

This episode of the Being Human is Good For Business podcast is an encore show for September 2021... In this episode of the Being Human is Good For Business Podcast, Trilogy Effect partners Heather Marasse, Wendy Appel and Mary Beth Sawicki discuss listening skills as a ‘superpower' and explain how learning to listen generously can transform a good leader into a truly great one. “Like everyone who is lucky enough to have their sense of hearing, most leaders have been listening all their lives,” explains Managing Partner Heather Marasse. “But that doesn't mean they're actually listening well. It takes a certain openness and curiosity as well as the patience to let things unfold naturally.” Listening is automatic for most people, and what an individual actually takes in is based on the filters they use to process and understand the world around them.   Partner Wendy Appel explains, “When a colleague is talking, you might think, ‘I already know what you're going to say. Can you just get to the point? Hurry up so I can talk', for example. This is listening in order to speak. But great leaders listen actively beyond their filters and encourage their team to share their ideas and opinions. This is how they fuel innovation and create new possibilities.” The profound impact of this superpower is often realized quickly as leaders put their generous listening skills to work. “One recent coaching client told us that she was convinced she didn't have the right people on her team,” says Partner Mary Beth Sawicki. “She had some very clear ideas about these individuals and what they could and, more importantly, couldn't do. Practicing generous listening allowed her to more clearly see the people she's at work with, and to understand them better. Now she leads a high functioning team that's delivering wonderful results. She loves them.” The good news is that, like any skill, you can learn how to be a generous listener and you can constantly improve through practice.  Listen to this podcast to find out how. You will also learn: Practical leadership tips you can put to work right awayHow to make meetings better and more valuable for everyoneHow to develop your listening skills to become your best as a leader.Links to helpful resources and information about some of the tools and concepts mentioned on the show:Listening: The Most Important Leadership SkillTrilogy Effect's free leadership guidebook to be as your best self as a leaderOur free newsletter, full of leadership advice and practical tips.Alignment: What It Is and Why It MattersWhat is Generous Listening?Facebook | LinkedIn | Twitter | InstagramWe invite you to subscribe to the Being Human Is Good for Business Podcast on iTunes, Amazon, Google Podcasts, iHeart Radio and Spotify (links below) or wherever you get your podcasts.

Grateful for you.episode transcription available hereabout Zachary:Zachary Feltey is a meandering student of the Way, mapping his life along trajectories of auspicious interconnectedness on a journey of and for sacred belonging. Catalyzed by crisis and profound suffering in his early twenties, he has been compelled to center his life around spirituality and healing for the last decade and a half, listening longingly and desperately for "the flute of the Godhead behind the near screen of secret woodlands," as Sri Aurobindo so poetically put it. This winding journey has led from a foundation in addiction recovery, through various meditation centers, temples, and monasteries, across pan-Asian (mis)adventures, into and out of various institutions of higher learning, in concert with various spiritual traditions and a number of psycho-spiritual modalities and contexts, from indigenous ceremonies to contemporary and emergent therapeutic innovations, though the true crux has always been a fellowship of indispensably compassionate companions. Though often feeling more lost than found in this winding spiralic pilgrimage, Zach has stumbled into becoming something of a receptacle for various streams of wisdom and compassion, which he struggingly seeks to integratively gestate and birth forth as a kaleidoscopic array of holonomic visionary potentiality, as a sacred offering to a world in peril.

The "Great Unknown" in this episode is the question, "what am I going to do now, after my career just ended?" Minette Norman had a 30 year career in the IT industry, for the past 20 years with the same company and the last 5 as a VP. Leadership changed, and as often happens when leadership changes, she was now an outsider of the new leadership group. The environment became very uncomfortable until she finally decided it was time to leave. Now what? Friends had ideas. She had the belief that she was not entreprenuerial, and after much soul-searching, she stepped into the fear and started her own leadership consulting practice. We talk about rebuilding confidence after a job loss. We talk about the importance of continuous learning. We talk about her new book, The Psychological Safety Playbook, that will come out in February of 2023. And we talked about asking yourself, "Can I give that a Whole Body Yes?" Episode Takeaways: 1. We are not done yet, unless we want to be. We still have so much to give. 2. Never stop learning! 3. Be open to new experiences 4. Embrace "what if..." Treat everything as an experiment.

It is for lifelong learners who are finding meaning and purpose in their lives and living their best life at this next stage of life. The push is on for the Hey Boomer Walk to End Alzheimer's and I want to thank my Walk to End Alzheimer's team.

I also wanted to mention the What's Next group coaching program. This program helps answer the question Who am I now? Who do I want to be? And how am I going to feel useful and relevant again? It's a six week group coaching program. At the end of six weeks, you're going to have a six month plan. And if you're really motivated, you might even have a one year plan to get yourself moving in the direction that's going to feel good to you. That's going to feel like you are on the right path to your next act. You can set up a 20 minute free consultation with me using this calendar link. It's calendly.com /heyboomer/20min, it's 20 minutes that could change your life. And if you want to check out the website first, you can just go to heyboomer.biz/coaching. Today, you know, we're going to talk about stepping off into the great unknown. And I thought it would be good to give you a little background for myself. In February of 2009, my beloved father passed away. Within two years my second marriage ended. I moved out of my beautiful home. I sold my business for a loss. And I found myself sitting in a group program about being grateful. And at the time, I was struggling to figure out what I was grateful for. I was depressed. I felt depleted. My heart was closed. I just didn't know what I was good at anymore or what made me happy. I rejoined the corporate world. And then in 2017, I got laid off because of a corporate merger. Took another job. And then in March of 2020, the pandemic shut down the place I was working, and there I was again. What was I going to do? But this time I decided I was going to start a show that was going to inspire people and help all of us through that time. So I started, Hey Boomer, in April of 2020, and it wasn't long after I started, Hey Boomer, that I experienced this amazing sense of freedom. And it came over me that I could say what I wanted to say. I could be authentic. It was my show. And if people didn't want to listen to what we were talking about on the show, they could turn it off. But it was finally an opportunity to really be authentically myself. And it felt great. And I think that is what stepping off into the great unknown will do for you when you find that passion. It can be very unsettling. It can be terrifying, but if it matches your passion and as you settle into it, you will begin to feel that sense of freedom also. And that is what we're going to talk about today. I am going to bring Minette on because I'm super excited about this conversation. Hi, Minette. Hello, Wendy. So glad you could join us today. Thanks for inviting me. Yeah. Let me do a quick overview of your background and then we'll get into more detail. So Minette spent decades in leadership roles in the software industry. Her last role before leaving the company was as vice president of engineering practices at Autodesk. She began her consulting practice, Minette Norman Consulting LLC in the spring of 2020. Her passion is to develop transformational leaders who create inclusive working environments with a foundation of psychological safety. Minette was named in 2017 as one of the most influential women in the Bay Area business by the San Francisco Business Times and as business role model of the year in 2018 by the Women in Silicon Valley Awards. And she is a recognized leader with a unique perspective. Minette is also the co-author of a book about psychological safety for leaders. The Psychological Safety Playbook: Lead More Powerfully by Being Human, which will be published in February of 2023. Oh, boy. And she's also finishing up another book on inclusive leadership. So you've been busy since you left your corporate job? Yes, I have. Absolutely. Well, let's start there. Like, why did you decide after 20 or 30 years in the industry that you were going to step out? You know, that question could be the whole podcast that we're doing today. It's a really long, it could be a really long answer. So I'm going to try to try to give you a succinct answer to that question. But maybe I'll start by saying I had this amazing career. I spent three decades in the software industry. I didn't expect when I started in 1989 as a technical writer at Adobe that I would end up 25 years later as a VP. I just never considered that. But I did. I had this amazing run. And I guess the short answer is that I had a fabulous career that ended really badly, and the way it ended badly was it was kind of insidious. I didn't quite see what was happening, but with hindsight I can see it very clearly. There I was in this VP role. I was appointed by an SVP who was kind of my sponsor. And when he left the company, that was really the beginning of the end. But I didn't see it so clearly at the time. I got a new boss who was a former peer and he was the peer I got along the least well with, of course, and suddenly he was my boss. And then after I think maybe a year, he brought in a new VP. And so basically the new VP was my boss. I was moved down a rung. And then what happened? This was really the unraveling was this new VP who was my boss. Gradually he did a big reorg and almost all of my responsibilities were taken away. And I had this I had had a very large, very impactful role that really was a wonderful role. And I loved it. I worked with like 3500 people around the globe. I had a big staff, I had big responsibilities, and those were taken away. And at the same time, what I didn't see and that I can see so well now is that basically they were just they were trying to get me to leave because I was now, you know, when the leadership change, they no longer really needed my services, but they didn't say that explicitly. And instead I got some really unpleasant things happen in that I won't talk about because I've signed one of those non-disparagement agreements, so I just am not going to say what actually happened, but it resulted in me leaving and I didn't plan on leaving when I did, but I did. So there I was in 2019, late 2019, and didn't have a plan. Yeah, and that is so common when leadership changes that everything gets shook up and they don't want you. So you didn't have a plan. And, you know, one of the things that we've talked about before we are doing the show live was so how did you feel? What did you do? What do you mean? That's pretty scary. Yeah, I really I didn't have a plan. So, you know, it's kind of interesting when you leave under those conditions, you're always leaving to pursue new opportunities. That's sort of the verbiage. You know, Minette is leaving to pursue new opportunities. And one of the things that was in my mind had been sort of planted by a good friend of mine. And we were attending a nonprofit gala event and we were sitting at a table and he said to me, You know, Minette, you'd be a really good executive director for a nonprofit. And, you know, he's a good friend who's known me for a long, long time. And I thought, what a great idea. And so I started looking around and I got really far into an interview process with a local nonprofit that was looking for a new ED. And it's very good that they ended up picking someone else. And the process took a really long time because midway through it I realized this is not what I want. You know, this was sort of like someone else's idea of what I should be doing, but it wasn't what I really wanted. And I knew this because I'd been on a nonprofit board for several years, and I know what the ED goes through and how hard it is to work with a board and all of that. And I thought, No, I don't want to do that. So that idea sort of faded away. And then, then I was back to Now what? Now what? And one of the things yeah, one of the things that I really knew, like in that last job that I had for five years, I had been, you know, my on paper description was to transform engineering practices across the company and really modernize how we develop software. But what I was actually doing was changing the culture and changing how people interacted. And really I was doing a lot of work on diversity, equity and inclusion and trying to have more inclusive leadership. And in my mind, that's really what was important to me. And I was spending more and more energy on that even when I was in the job. So as I was doing some soul searching about what I might do next, I thought, well, well, maybe I can do that work working for somebody else, right? So whether it's another company or another. Consulting firm. I definitely never thought I'm going to start my own business because, you know, there was part of the self talk that we do. I said to myself, I am not entrepreneurial because I've always worked for somebody else for my entire career. So, you know, the words we say matter. I'm not entrepreneurial. I believed that. And so then I was introduced to another woman who was starting a consulting firm, and she wanted to hire a group of women. She was very deliberate about hiring a group of women who would be leadership consultants and that we would help build better workplaces. And so I thought, well, this is perfect. I don't have to start my own thing. I can go work with her. And so I actually spent a few months meeting with her and meeting with the small team she had assembled, and I was ready to sign on. And then she offered me an agreement. It was a legal agreement of how we would partner. And as I'm reading the fine print, I see that it says that she and her firm would own all perpetual rights to anything I created, whether it was a workshop, a talk, written materials, blog posts, whatever. And honestly, one day that was the aha moment for me where I realized, okay, this is what I have. My intellectual property is really all I have. And people are interested in hiring me because of this experience and knowledge. And I can't give that away. I absolutely cannot give that to anyone. I have to own that. And so I realized, okay, if you want to own it and you want to make the decisions yourself, that means you're going to have to start your own thing. And so that's what I did. There's so much in what you just said. Minette So when did you actually leave the company? I left Autodesk in August of 2019, 2019. So it took you a little over a year to kind of figure out what you were going to do next and go through that journey. It was actually about it was about six months, I guess, because it was like August. And then by kind of the same time you were starting this podcast, I had decided to launch my business. So that's like what, six, seven months? And of course, both of us doing this right at the beginning of a pandemic. The pandemic. Right. That's what we do. Yeah. So you talked about some of the self-talk, you know, like, oh, I'm not an entrepreneur or, you know, or I mean, I think our self-talk can definitely get in our way. And how did you manage to shift that to Oh, well, I could be an entrepreneur and I am an entrepreneur. You know, that's a I don't have, an easy answer to that because I think it was all a very gradual process. Part of it was getting over the fact that my self confidence was so shaken I had to. So when I left when I left Autodesk, I really felt very damaged because I felt like I thought I had a bunch of credibility and that manager that I had made me doubt that. And so I had to really kind of rebuild my my strength and my my belief in myself. And part of that for me is always talking to people that know me like I have I have really good close friends, but I also have a network of trusted ex-colleagues and friends I've made through work and really just talking to them about like what really went down. Am I seeing this clearly? I also I will tell you a little sort of a funny story that when I left Autodesk, because I'd been there 20 years, I knew a lot of people I'd I'd had a very big platform those last five years. So many people had heard me speak or knew me. And I got all these emails as you do when you leave a company you've had a long time. So before I left, I get I had I mean, there were well over maybe there were 100 or 200 emails and I'm like, I can't I don't want to forward all these to my personal account. So what I did is I went through them and I actually copied and pasted some of them, the ones that were like the most meaningful to me. And I put them into one document. So I had this sort of encouragement document of like people who said, you made such an impact, you were really a role model, whatever it was. And I, I went back to that document, however corny that sounds, I would sometimes read the comments in there just to realize that like, okay, you didn't imagine that you, you, you were a good leader and you really did have a positive impact on many people's lives and careers. And so kind of just gradually rebuilding my confidence, I would say, took several months and I was kind of a wreck when I walked out of there. And by the beginning of of 2020, I was starting to feel better. I remember it was just before the pandemic shut down. I did a speaking engagement in San Francisco, and that went really well. And then someone I knew from Salesforce invited me to come in and do a workshop, and it was a leadership offsite. And I did a workshop and it was completely in my wheelhouse and in my comfort zone. And it was. Was great. It went really well. And that gave me that confidence of like, okay, you've just had two wonderful experiences. People wanted you to come in, they appreciated what you had to share. And I was very energized by that. And that that experience was like, okay, well, there's something here. Let me explore what that was and what that is and what that might be. And the first thing I did, because I'd been in tech for so long as well, let's, let's just build a website not knowing what I was getting into. But I thought, well, if I have a website, I have a business. And so I built my first website which I have since turned over to an expert. But at the time that was like, let me do something tangible. And that just sort of got me going. And the other thing that's funny about that, though, because of the timing is I had a website, I had announced my business and every budget was shut down because of the pandemic. So that's right. Right. Everyone I reached out to was like, Oh yeah, we'd love to bring you in, but all of our budgets are frozen. So in a way that was kind of good because it gave me that 2020 period to figure out what is my offering going to be, what is my sort of, as they say, the value proposition that I uniquely can provide. And I took I took a class that was being offered by someone who has his own leadership consulting practice, and he's really successful. How how? Adler And I took this class with him, and he gave us very practical tips for like, how do you run a leadership consulting business? And that was so helpful to like even just practical things like how do you do proposals, how do you do invoicing, how do you do marketing, etc.? So that kind of built my confidence. And then going into the end of 2020 and into 2021, I got my first client and then, you know, it starts to go from there. Yeah, no. And I appreciate your vulnerability about that because, you know, I felt the same way when I got let go in 2017. I was building a training department, I'd built their online university, I was enjoying my job, and then it just went away. And it does rock your world. It does shake your confidence. And it's so funny that you said about your list of positive comments that you got because I did the same thing with you. I did. I did the same thing. And, you know, every once in a while, I, I still will go back and look at things that people have written to me or that I've written to to recenter myself. Because I think as human beings, we sometimes do get off center. And I think fear is a big thing that gets in the way of people. And I was just curious about, you know. Of like fear. There's an acronym. Fear is false evidence appearing real. Right. So we we look out and we go, oh, people are never going to buy our product or they're never going to sign up for what I'm doing. And then you have to step into it. Right. And so some of what you did was, like you said, you took a class. You talk to people. You know, I think part of what people have to realize, we're not alone. Right. So how how are you working that network now and still stepping into that courage that you have to continue to have as a solopreneur? You do. You do. Because I honestly especially because I still feel I'm very new to this this consulting world is that each new engagement, each new potential client, each new introduction is like, okay, can I do this one? Like I did the last one that gave me a little bit of a confidence. But can I can I do this engagement? Is this so? I remind myself, I often remind myself of what I've done before that has worked and that was good and and also what went badly. I haven't had any absolute disasters in my consulting so far, but there are definitely things that didn't go as well as I wanted or things that I would do differently. So just that continuous, like what? What went well, what can I repeat? What can I learn from? What can I do differently? But I also I really I'm a very social person. And so being a solopreneur wouldn't work for me unless I did have this really supportive network. And so I talk to people a lot and I bounce ideas off of people and I'll talk. I know we're going to talk a little bit about the book that's coming out, but I now have this fabulous colleague in Germany who's my co-author on this book that I wrote, and she's also a leadership consultant. And so she's someone when I'm working on something, I bounce a lot of ideas off of like, how would you do this? How have you done this? And just having someone to talk to when you're in business for yourself is really helpful. And I have others as well. And, and even how this person, his company is called Leadership Landing. And I remember like I had gotten a potential client soon after I took his class and I had no idea how to price something. Right. Pricing is actually really hard, especially when you've worked inside. Like I remember when I used to hire consultants when I was a VP and we'd pay him $25,000 for a one day thing, you know? And then when I was out on my own, I'm like, How could I possibly charge that kind of money? Right? So I had no idea how to price my offering. So I actually remember shooting at Hal a text and like I have a proposal to write. How would you even think about pricing this? So having a group of trusted people in the somewhat the same space has been really helpful and has given me confidence. And I remember when I, when I did my first engagement and it was someone who I had worked with at Autodesk and she brought me into another company she was working with. And I totally underpriced. I completely underpriced when I realized how much time I would have to spend on it. And that's that's okay. That's a learning experience. Like, okay, now I need to charge more next time. Yeah, yeah. None of it's fatal, but it's just like you learn as you go and you keep iterating. It is a learning experience. I think that's part of the journey that we're on and that's part of the confidence to right. You start to price yourself a little more as you gain your confidence. Exactly. You realize how good you are. So let's talk about your book, Psychological Safety. And I'm curious what it is. And then I know it's geared to the corporate world, but I'm wondering if there's an application for it as people are moving into this next transition in their lives. Okay. So let me first explain the basic definition of psychological safety, which is and it's not it's not only for the corporate world, it is basically a team phenomenon. So any team, any group you a part of and what it is, is that you have the belief in this group that this is a safe place for you to ask a question, for you to take a risk, make a mistake, and really show up as yourself without fear of embarrassment, humiliation, rejection, ostracism. Right. So that you can in this group, you can challenge someone in the group. You don't have to agree with everybody. That's the basic concept of psychological safety. The research around it, which has one of the biggest researchers in the space, is Amy Edmondson from Harvard, and she's written a book about it called The Fearless Organization. The research has shown that when you're in a psychologically safe environment, you're more innovative because people can share those wild ideas, right? People are not afraid of sharing their ideas because it is a safe place, but also that teams perform better when you have a safe environment and when you don't have it, what happens is that people feel compelled to agree with everyone else. You get this conformity bias because it's not safe to be the one who descends and who says, you know, I have a different viewpoint on this. So that's that's the basic concept. We we decide so how the book came to be. And then I'll talk about your I'll answer your question about your personal and your personal world. So so the how that how the book came to be is I, I hid under under stood the concept back when I was at Autodesk. And in fact I had found Amy Edmondson research. I tried to hire her as a keynote speaker at one point, so I had found her research. Google did a huge study called Project Aristotle that was written about in the New York Times around 2018 or 15. I forget one. So that came out and people started to understand the term beyond academia. So I had understood it, but I had also lived and breathed the absence of it. Right. And I had I had been in and it wasn't just like a toxic environment that I ended up in at the end, but it was. Even being part of a leadership team that was fairly functional. We were really careful, like we were careful with what we said and what we didn't say and we didn't challenge the leader of the group even though he was a good guy, but he didn't invite challenge. You know, he kind of you kind of needed to agree with him. And so it wasn't many of the teams I was a part of were not particularly safe environments. And I remember this feeling of like holding back, being in a meeting and having something I wanted to say and then just holding back and go, God, I don't dare, I don't dare, you know, or and when I did, sometimes, you know, a couple of things would happen. Sometimes people would just ignore you because they didn't want to hear it, and sometimes you'd get an eye roll or just it often wasn't a good situation. So I had definitely been aware of the term, I had experienced it. I had been in rare teams where there was a high level of psychological safety and realized like how powerful that is and how much you can get done when everyone can fully contribute. So I was a real believer in it. And then speaking of classes, so in last year, last spring, I signed up for a class that was based on Amy Edmondson, Zork, and it was to do psychological safety assessments. So basically it was a certification program in her methodology to be able to go into a team and run an assessment on psychological safety. In this class, there were probably about 20 or 25 of us, and we were divided up into smaller groups. And in my smaller group was this woman named Colleen Helbig, who's this leadership consultant in Germany. And she and I just hit it off. And I was on a podcast with another of our students, and she heard it and she emailed me and said, We have to save this email forever because the title of the email said Crazy Idea. And she wrote to me and she said, You know, Minette, I heard you on the podcast and you said, There's not much material that's practical, like how leaders can actually increase the level of psychological safety in their teams. And she goes, I feel that too. And I have this crazy idea. What if you and I wrote a little she wrote pamphlet. The word she used was, What if we wrote a little pamphlet about it? So that was the beginning. And we got on a zoom call and we set up an online whiteboard, or she did, which was great, and we just started brainstorming and we ended up collaborating on a short, deliberately short, but it's not a pamphlet, a full book on how to increase psychological safety. It's called The Psychological Safety Playbook lead more powerfully by being more human, and it's coming out next year. And the idea is that it's really something that you as a manager or a leader in any field could pick up off your shelf, turn to any page because it's got discrete tips in there and and pick up a tip that you might want to try out with your team. And so that's how that all came to be. And we're excited about that. But I do want to answer your question about developing. I think your question was, can we have psychological safety for ourselves? Is that what it was? Yeah. And let me give it a try. Right. Okay. Because listening to what you said and here we are, we've stepped into this great unknown. We're solopreneur as we're trying to build our business. And I would think like I have a board now of advisors, and so I run ideas by them and I feel very safe running my ideas by them. And sometimes they go, Yeah, that's a really great idea. And other times they'll say, Oh, I think you really need to think that. So I think for personally in my own business, I can see psychological safety. In your personal life, there are certainly going to be people that it's not safe to be say things with. That's absolutely right. That yeah, absolutely. I mean, you ideally you want to surround yourself with people with whom you can be real like that you can always be real and that you don't have to hold back. But of course, there are people in your lives where you do, you are cautious and you you choose your words wisely. And that's normal, too. I think one thing is in your personal life is that is maybe not about psychological safety, but it's like, what do we give ourselves permission to do? You know, that's that's more the way I think about it for yourself is. Yeah, yeah. What do what do we let ourselves do and not do? But in terms of our relationships, there's that. Can I. Can I be real with this person? Yeah. And you know what? That makes me think you brought this up earlier too, about the shoulds and the expectations. And I think a lot of the time that we follow those shoulds and those expectations that people have of us, it's because we feel it's safer. You know, it would be so much harder to say to them, oh, that's not really that doesn't really fit me or Yeah, I don't know that that's what I really want to do. It's easier to just say, Well, if that's what you think I should do, okay, I'll go ahead and do that. So I think it plays out there too. And, and having the courage, that was a big thing. Having the courage to say, you know what, it's my time in life now and I don't have to do it. Everyone expects I have to do what I expect, what I feel good about. So, I mean, you've experienced that transition, too, right? Totally. And, you know, I think about you like I'm going to start a podcast, right? Like, did did anyone try to talk you out of that or did you just say, I know I want to do this in my heart of hearts? Sure. A lot of people I mean, a lot of people said to me, how are you going to make money with that? You know, and I wasn't sure at the time, and I'm still developing ways to make money with it. But I knew in my heart minute I knew I had to do this because I knew that there were going to be a lot of people that needed this positive, inspirational, inspiring stories of other people in similar situations. Yeah. And so I just had to do it and, and I just it gave me the strength to say, don't worry about it, I'll figure it out, you know, and it will happen and it will grow. And yeah, it was scary. But it is. It is, you know, it's it's very interesting. I didn't know this term until Caroline introduced me to it. And I think it's from the conscious leadership group. The term you may have heard is can you give it a whole body? Yes. And you heard that term? No, I love that. I do, too. We were talking about Caroline and I were talking about what we might and might not do to promote our book. And she said, like, I don't want to waste time on things that that sap our energy. I want to spend time on things where we can say with our whole body, yes, yes, we want to do this. We're all in on it. Our heart, our mind, our spirit, we all want to do this. And so I really like I ask myself that when I'm hearing the shoulds in my mind, like you should be you should be sending out some emails this week to try to get some more clients. And I'm like, Do I really want to do that? No, I actually want to work on this project. Right, right. And my whole body is saying yes to this and not to doing prospecting emails. Right. That's not what I need to be doing. I want to be doing. So I know and it's not so much that other people are telling me what to do. It's the voices in my own head saying that you should be doing this and doing that. And, you know, we're hard on ourselves. That inner critic is is active all the time. Well, and we've both been leaders and companies. And so when you are used to all the shoulds that things that have to get done, the goals that you have to meet, yeah, you definitely do that to yourself. And I like that whole body. The whole body, yes. Yeah. The book that that's in is is I think I think it's called The Conscious Leader 1515 Tips for the Conscious Leaders from the Conscious Leadership Group. And it's a really good book. Yeah. That's what it comes from. And then I think there's a book, another book called The Whole Body. So anyway, it's it's a known term now, but I'm I'm embracing it, definitely. Yeah, I really like that because it's. Yeah. When you're when you. You know, I make a to do list every week for the whole week and then I do have to prioritize. Know what is it? I guess I look at it two ways. Mannat and tell me if you do something similar. First of all, I look at it and say, what do I want to do? What's going to make me excited? And then what do I need to do to bring in more business? And then the rest of it can kind of go by the wayside and study. I also am studying all the time. Oh, yes, yeah. No. And that's I think that's one of the most important things that I am reading voraciously and listening to podcasts and listening to audiobooks. Because in reading articles, because I feel like, you know, I actually, I, I was going to say imposter syndrome and I hate that term, so I'm just going to leave that one out. But I always feel like there's more to learn and I don't want to feel like I'm stagnating in terms of what I know and what what my body of knowledge. And so I'm I feel like that reading and listening and and informing ourselves is just a constant part of this work. And, and I enjoy that. That's not something I feel like you should be doing. Although there are times when I'm like, I want to read a novel and I should be reading this business book. And so balancing that is an act sometimes, right? It is. So I have my novels by my bedside, my schedule, and I get up early to do some of my early morning. Work type of reading. But you're right. I mean, there's so much to learn. And and and some of it is just reinforcing stuff that we know. That's right. And in fact, I was talking to my sister about this the other day, you know, that we we read something and we learn what we're ready to learn at that moment. And then we go back and look at it another time. Maybe a year later, two years, and you're like, Oh, there's so much more here. You're now ready for more. That is absolutely true. And I have I'm pointing down to my floor here because my shelf is over here. But I have like this stack of business books that I recently ordered that I want to read. And I found one that I had read quite a while ago that I picked up again. And it was like, Oh yeah, I just totally have a different perspective on it. It's so. Interesting, deeper understanding of what what that's. About. Yeah, it's so interesting how that happens. So where are you finding the best places to kind of reach out to the audience that you're looking for? Oh, so the the whole social media question or. Social media in person networking. What are you. Yeah. I have not been doing much in-person stuff yet because of because of COVID. I mean, honestly, just I haven't I've had like two in-person speaking events this year, but the rest has all been virtual. So I've mostly been doing LinkedIn as my primary platform for connecting with people a little bit on Twitter. I use Facebook for personal stuff. And you know, it's really interesting now because the personal and the professional have blurred so much like I know an author that I met who does everything everywhere. So her Facebook is all about promoting her work and I haven't done that. So I mostly LinkedIn for my for my work. But, you know, it's so interesting with this book, these books coming up because the first one is in February and then the inclusive leadership will be out later in 2023. And so building an author platform is a whole thing that I'm just getting started on. And so, you know that that's where my energy is, honestly, right now is like not as much client work as much as trying to build this author platform. Although I have a client engagement with a new client this week. So yeah, it's a it's a mix. And of course everywhere I meet anyone, I'm talking about the book and we have a URL for the book so people can sign up for our mailing list and things like that. But you'll definitely have to let us know when the book comes out. So I. Can. I can promote it to my audience, too. Oh, I will, I will. Yeah. And the social media thing is, you know, I've been taking some classes about promotion and podcasting and growing the audience and and, you know, they say pick two to get really good at. Exactly right. Don't spread yourself across all of the different platforms because they're all different the way. They are all different. So what are your two that you use for the podcast that are your go to ones? Yeah. So I use Facebook because I also have a private group on Facebook for people that are going through this transition to what's next. And so it's a place where we can share ideas and ask questions and that kind of thing. So I really love having that. And then LinkedIn is, you know, there's so many people on LinkedIn that are now in our stage of life. Yeah. And either they've been pushed out or they are thinking about what's next. And so I think LinkedIn is. You know, I think LinkedIn is an interesting place because you have to combine the personal sometimes with the professional so that they get to know you as a person. You know, you and didn't you and I connect because in my viral post about turning 62, that's how we connected, right? Yeah. That's such an interesting story because I had until then been very work focused on LinkedIn. Like when I would post, it was always about my work, those client work or whatever. And for some reason I had turned 62 in June and I had this compulsion to write a post on LinkedIn about anyway, it was personal, but it was also about like ageism in the workplace and, you know, having the freedom to be my own boss and that sort of thing. So I posted that the day after my birthday and it is the first time a post of mine ever went viral. And I had like 1.5 million impressions and 25,000 reactions in 2000 comments and hundreds of shares. And I'm like, What was that? And how am I ever I mean, since then, I haven't had any posts even close to more than 10,000. So yeah. How do you get the 1.5? I would love to get 1.5 million when I start talking more about my book. All the time. And it's my friend Laura that's on this call right now that that pointed me to your post. And. That's right. You know, you've got to connect with her. And of course, the minute we connected, I was so excited and I felt like a kindred spirit. Absolutely. And you know, what was so interesting about that post is how many people reached out to me through private messages. And I ended up having several Zoom calls with people, women who were dealing with the same thing at this stage of their life. Some younger, some a little older. But like, what's next? I've been forced out, you know, trying to reinvent. And there's so many of us. There are so many with so many. Talents and so much energy and so much wisdom and so much to give. And everyone's trying to figure it out. Right? And the ageism is rampant. And it is. And we are not done yet. We are not done yet. Very interesting. Many of the comments were about diversity, equity and inclusion. And several people said, you know, DEI is so popular now and yet no one talks about ageism. When they talk about aspects of diversity, that's the one that seems to be left out. That's right. That's right. So I always like to ask my guests at the end of the interview if they have two or three takeaways. Now, there's been so much we've talked about, so I know it's going to be hard to narrow it down, but do you have a couple of things you'd like to leave with people today? Yeah. I think the first one has to be that you are not done yet no matter who you are and where you are. Like you have so much to give and it's really figuring out what's what's important to you and what is that whole body. Yes. That you want to move forward with and what can you cast aside? And so so you're not done yet unless you want to be. And if you want to be, then embrace what that next phase is. If it's truly retirement and that you want to enjoy time with friends and family, that's cool. But if you don't want to be done, you are not done. And I guess I mentioned it earlier, but I think that what's so important to us is that we never stop learning. And I am absolutely convinced that continuous learning is what keeps us vibrant and relevant and engaged in the world. And one of the things that I learned about taking classes is that it's not only what you're going to learn, but it's who you're going to meet in those classes. So I met my co-author in Bonn, Germany, and an online class, right? Who knew we were going to be friends and colleagues and write a book together? You just never know who you're going to meet in a class. And I've met some amazing people in classes, and they are people who help me with my work going forward. And so maybe a third, you said two or three. I think my third and final would be that one of the things that made our collaboration so successful for Caroline and me is she often would say things like, What if we da da da and she's like, What if we set ourselves a little deadline? And it would be very non-threatening, but to embrace the idea of what if and like treat everything like an experiment. And what if I tried this and what if I did that? And learn from what works and what sticks and what feels good and cast aside the rest and that what if and that treating things like an experiment is very freeing and very it's not as scary as like I'm going to. Instead, it's like, what if what? That's a brilliant. Those are brilliant. And those with tie in together the continuous learning and the what if because you're learning and that whole body. Yes I love that. Thank you. Thank you. I've been sharing how to reach you. You can certainly email minute at but at minute at minute, Norman And you can check out her website at Minette. Norman So get in touch with her. Let her know how much you liked this and sign up for her next book. Thank you so much for having me, Wendy.

Adam Hendrix is back on with Mark and Jess this week to discuss his sabbatical and closing our Being Human series! The word "sin" sounds outdated, old-fashioned, heavy-handed, and guilt-producing. But it's right there in the Bible. What do we do with that? This week, we explore David's major sin and look at how we, as Christians, don't need to avoid sin, but DO need to recognize and become aware of sin. After all, sin, failures, and mistakes are never the end of the story—redemption is. Use Psalm 51 in the Psalm book to examine your heart. Ask God to help you recognize the sin in your life. And then, meditate on Psalm as a way to turn toward the path of redemption. Find a sermon-based study guide for this week: http://menlo.church/studyguide081422

Dan Siegel, PhD, is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine. He is the author of several bestselling books including Mind: A Journey into the Heart of Being Human. In this second part of a two-part series, Dan and Dawson talk about how much bigger the mind is than the brain. They reference research showing that quantum entanglement applies not just at the molecular level, but to large living systems. Besides fields at the level of atoms and molecules, there are large scale fields extending even to the level of societies. These may be the mechanism connecting minds at a distance. When we fill our personal experience with love and kindness, our interior worlds reach out to shape the larger fields of nonlocal mind. Dan and Dawson discuss: The old view that mind and consciousness are epiphenomena of complex brains is outdated Social fields that connect large numbers of human beings Energy is the movement of possibility to actuality How thoughts can move intention toward collapsing possibility into probability The phenomenon of shared mind can extend to the macro level The 3 ingredients of a connected life: focused attention, open awareness, kind intention The way your state of mind will influence people 3 degrees of separation away For more about Dr. Dan Siegel: https://drdansiegel.com/ And more about Dr. Dawson Church: http://dawsongift.com/ #eft #eftuniverse #mindtomatter #blissbrain #highenergyhealth #beinghuman #themind

There are certain questions we have asked as a species collectively, usually the age old question is why. Why are we here? But have we asked ourselves what our call as a species is?

Welcome back to Therapy Chat! This week's episode is replay of a fascinating conversation with someone who needs no introduction. Dr. Dan Siegel is this week's guest, and he explains the concept of interpersonal neurobiology, the nature of the mind, integration and “Mwe”. Personally, I think a "Mwe" consciousness is more crucial than ever right now. He shares his story of becoming interested in the brain and the mind beginning in college, and continuing through his medical school training. He explains his disappointment at discovering in medical school in the late 1980's that there did not seem to be a science of the mind that psychiatry was using to inform mental health work. He wanted to understand both how the body functions and how our mental lives play a part in keeping us alive. He explains that interpersonal neurobiology is not a branch of neurobiology, but a framework combining many disciplines including the mental health fields of psychology, psychiatry, counseling, social work, as well as sociology, philosophy, quantum physics, math and others to answer the question “what is the mind?” He explains that he has interviewed over 100,000 people and none of them had ever had any training in what the mind is, which is a real gap in knowledge considering that we in the mental health field are working in the mind. That is what our work is. He tells us that the mind is where the self comes from; then discusses what the mind is, why it exists, where is it, what's its function. Dan argues we need to understand the mind to understand all of these questions. He discusses this in depth in his new book, Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human, which is coming out in Fall of 2016. He notes that the field called Philosophy of mind discourages asking what is the mind. Psychiatry doesn't have a definition of the mind. Psychology doesn't have a definition and says it's a useful placeholder. What is a healthy mind? What's a healthy thought? Some topics Dan discusses in this episode: Mind is not only emotions in this definition. It includes emotions, feelings, anything you can be subjectively aware of. In Dan's definition, consciousness, subjective experience and information processing are the 3 parts of the mind. He talks about how he noticed that what we call mental health disorders fit into a pattern of chaos and rigidity. In probability theory of math there was an area of study which related to this which states that a complex system has three characteristics: It's open to influences from outside of self; capable of being chaotic and it's non-linear. It's a self organizing, embodied and relational process. This answer comes from math. He explains that in mental health, integration defines health. He states that the best definition of mental health is that the system is Flexible, Adaptive, Coherent, Energized and Stable (FACES). Where attention goes, neural firing flows, neural connection grows Dan talks about how therapists can use these concepts to help clients live happier and more fulfilling lives, not just lives of being free from mental health symptoms.

#133 - Max Tegmark on how a 'put-up-or-shut-up' resolution led him to work on AI and algorithmic news selection

On January 1, 2015, physicist Max Tegmark gave up something most of us love to do: complain about things without ever trying to fix them. That "put up or shut up" New Year's resolution led to the first Puerto Rico conference and Open Letter on Artificial Intelligence - milestones for researchers taking the safe development of highly-capable AI systems seriously. Links to learn more, summary and full transcript. Max's primary work has been cosmology research at MIT, but his energetic and freewheeling nature has led him into so many other projects that you would be forgiven for forgetting it. In the 2010s he wrote two best-selling books, Our Mathematical Universe: My Quest for the Ultimate Nature of Reality, and Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence, and in 2014 founded a non-profit, the Future of Life Institute, which works to reduce all sorts of threats to humanity's future including nuclear war, synthetic biology, and AI. Max has complained about many other things over the years, from killer robots to the impact of social media algorithms on the news we consume. True to his 'put up or shut up' resolution, he and his team went on to produce a video on so-called 'Slaughterbots' which attracted millions of views, and develop a website called 'Improve The News' to help readers separate facts from spin. But given the stunning recent advances in capabilities - from OpenAI's DALL-E to DeepMind's Gato - AI itself remains top of his mind. You can now give an AI system like GPT-3 the text: "I'm going to go to this mountain with the faces on it. What is the capital of the state to the east of the state that that's in?" And it gives the correct answer (Saint Paul, Minnesota) - something most AI researchers would have said was impossible without fundamental breakthroughs just seven years ago. So back at MIT, he now leads a research group dedicated to what he calls "intelligible intelligence." At the moment, AI systems are basically giant black boxes that magically do wildly impressive things. But for us to trust these systems, we need to understand them. He says that training a black box that does something smart needs to just be stage one in a bigger process. Stage two is: "How do we get the knowledge out and put it in a safer system?" Today's conversation starts off giving a broad overview of the key questions about artificial intelligence: What's the potential? What are the threats? How might this story play out? What should we be doing to prepare? Rob and Max then move on to recent advances in capabilities and alignment, the mood we should have, and possible ways we might misunderstand the problem. They then spend roughly the last third talking about Max's current big passion: improving the news we consume - where Rob has a few reservations. They also cover: * Whether we could understand what superintelligent systems were doing * The value of encouraging people to think about the positive future they want * How to give machines goals * Whether 'Big Tech' is followin

The concept of the hero's journey was popularized by Joseph Campbell, and outlined in his 1949 book The Hero With a Thousand Faces. Campbell based the hero's journey framework off of myths from around the world. Since then, the idea of the hero's journey has been used in books and movies like Star Wars, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and many more. But, despite its popularity, Campbell's hero's journey framework has faced a number of criticisms, including that he left women out of the story. Maria Tatar's new book, The Heroine with 1001 Faces, changes that. This hour, we look at the impact of the hero's journey, and its limitations. GUESTS:  Maria Tatar: Professor of Folklore and Mythology at Harvard University, whose new book is The Heroine with 1001 Faces Jeff Garvin: Author of books including The Symptoms of Being Human, and co-host of “The Hero's Journey” podcast Lev Grossman: Author, best known for his Magicians trilogy, whose newest book is The Golden Swif Support the show: http://www.wnpr.org/donateSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Summary: Creative outreach. Wacky prospecting ideas. Gimmicks! How do you separate out the difference between an out of the box prospecting idea that's effective and ones that are really just cute gimmicks in the moment? I brought on Jeremiah Griffin, Head of Sales at the Sales Rebellion to talk about this. Jeremiah describes himself as a professional attention getter and crafter of creative copy. In this episode we break down differences of creative outreach, and gimmicks. He shares out of the box ideas that take planning and creative campaigns that can be run in minutes. Everything from the "Unwritten Story" to the "Coffee Stained Letter" to a story of how he was able to get a meeting using a personalized cutting board and a BINGO card! This is some creative stuff and using his frameworks, it might spark some ideas to you the next time you want to get creative and send someone something good to get you remembered in a good way.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Doe Paoro over Zoom video.Nothing stays still forever, the spirit of nature growing upward towards something greater. Fueled by that understanding, Doe Paoro has spent much of the last year deep in the Costa Rican jungle, exploring ways that music could activate deeper consciousness. Today, the musician, born Sonia Kreitzer, recently released her new EP Divine Surrendering. By deepening her connection with rituals like sound baths, psilocybin ceremonies, and the healing power of music, Paoro's latest work allowed her to entrust in music's potential to be a wellspring of uplift in the midst of gossamer beauty. Like the rebirth Paoro experienced in her own journey, the EP finds comfort in a constant sense of newness, growth, and transformation. Throughout Divine Surrendering, Paoro returns to grand humility, harnessing her strength by losing the self, tapping into something immense and drawing the listener to that same place. About Doe Paoro:Sonia Kreitzer is a singer, songwriter, and sound healer who performs under the name Doe Paoro (ANTI- Records) and lives between Costa Rica and Los Angeles. She has written songs for artists such as Peter Bjorn and John, Monogem, and Chris Ayers. Other artist collaborations include work with Justin Vernon, Son Little, and RAC. Her songs have amassed over 25 million streams across digital platforms and been featured in shows like HBO's Girls, SyFy's Being Human, ABC's Secrets and Lies, and more. She also records guided meditations which have been featured on both Apple Music and InsightTimer. Sonia grew up in Syracuse, New York and has studied music over the years in India, specifically learning Tibetan Opera singing. She comes from a family of healers and is interested in music as a healing modality. When not on tour, she facilitates soundbaths, singing and yoga retreats, and music for ceremonial spaces. She is the creator of Activating the Voice, an online course and workshop series that is dedicated to empowering the voice and tending to vocal-centered trauma through singing.

Shownotes:When we're struck by unexpected suffering, we ask question after question attempting to find meaning in the midst of our pain. We wonder why this diagnosis, disaster, or death had to happen to us or someone we love. We wonder if God is really good. We wonder if it's possible to live within our reality and still have hope, joy, and peace. Though these questions are important, our human nature lends itself toward the comfort of ignorance and flimsy optimism. What are the cultural scripts that dictate our understanding of pain and suffering?  How can we come alongside one another through both the highs and lows? Chris and Eddie are joined by Kate Bowler, author of No Cure for Being Human, professor at Duke Divinity School and host of the podcast, Everything Happens. After receiving an unexpected cancer diagnosis at the age of 35, Kate began to observe that the world does not offer a safe space for people in pain. Her move from crisis to chronic has led her to asking deeper questions about faith, God, and human suffering. She talks to Eddie and Chris about the gift of presence, the absurdity of life, a robustly Christian account of time, and the many ways we try to make meaning out of everything.Resources:Follow Kate Bowler on the web:https://katebowler.com Order No Cure for Being Human here:https://katebowler.com/no-cure-for-being-human/ Order Everything Happens for a Reason: And Other Lies I've Loved here:https://katebowler.com/everything-happens-for-a-reason-2/ Listen to Kate Bowler's podcast Everything Happens here:https://katebowler.com/podcasts/ Follow Kate Bowler on social media:https://www.facebook.com/katecbowler https://www.instagram.com/katecbowler/ https://twitter.com/katecbowlerKate Bowler on YouTubeKate Bowler on Goodreads
