In her decades-long syndication she's published almost nine million words on luck, the stars and the human condition.

On today's episode, meet Kayla Zeiner, Franchise Partner of Burn Westchase, Florida! As a Burn Boot Camp location owner, Kayla shares her story of how she got started training with Burn and the journey to eventual ownership from support training back in 2016. She shares "right people, right seats" mentality and candidly, how Burn Westchase did not take off initially due to poor hiring, and the evolution to where they are today. Kayla has flexed her leadership muscles in big ways and transformed this location into a successfully operating gym with over 300 members today! Kayla Zeiner had always been passionate about fitness and health, but her career as a teacher kept her in the classroom, rather than in the gym. But when an opportunity presented itself to take over an under-performing Burn Boot Camp location, she knew it was time to take a leap of faith and pursue her passion. Kayla's decision was not an easy one, leaving behind the job security of a teacher is a big step, but she knew that it was a chance for her to make a real impact in the lives of others. She threw herself into the role, putting all her energy and expertise into turning the location around. Through hard work, determination, and a commitment to providing an exceptional fitness experience, Kayla was able to revamp the location and create a thriving community of dedicated members. Her inspiring transformation from a teacher to a successful franchise partner serves as a reminder that with passion and dedication, anything is possible. Connect with Kayla HERE ________________________ Fall in Love with the Process. Fall in Love with Yourself. Change is rarely easy. It takes courage, discipline, and determination. But, what if instead of measuring success based on pounds lost or the reflection in the mirror, it was measured in gratitude?

Rosalie McMillan and Adam Fairweather are co-founders of the materials, design and manufacturing house, Smile Plastics. They have a factory in South Wales which takes plastics and other materials traditionally classed as waste and transforms them into extraordinarily eye-catching, large scale, solid surface panels. Over the years, the company has worked with the likes of Stella McCartney, Christian Dior, Paul Smith, Selfridges and the Wellcome Trust to name just a handful. Interestingly, this is the second coming for the material. I first came across it in the mid-1990s, when it was created by the designer and educator, Jane Atfield, for her renowned RCP2 chair, a piece that is in the permanent collections of the V&A and the Crafts Council and which is currently included the Yinka Ilori show, Parables for Happiness, at the London Design Museum.In this episode we talk about: the history of Smile Plastics; reviving the company in 2014 after it had closed four years earlier; how Adam and Rosalie started in a bomb shelter next to piles of compost; why the company was ahead of its time; the craft behind the material's process; Adam's early fascination with coffee waste; Rosalie's other career in jewellery; their live/work balance; calling the factory's machines Colin; and their ambitious plans for global growth.Support the show

What can I give? How can I give the gift of service? Is the gift of service better than tangible gift items? Do I have to give material gifts? How can I give without gifts? How do I give during the holidays? Do I have to go into debt during the holiday? What gifts are expected? What are the holiday expectations? Why is Christmas so materialistic? In this episode of Love Always, Self, Karista & Shyra discuss holiday gift giving and how materialism has altered our perspectives of giving to others. The majority of families in America are living paycheck to paycheck and the expectation to give gifts beyond our means during the holiday causes extended financial stress beyond the holidays. So how can you give without extending yourself beyond your means? Questions to ask yourself to understand your relationship to gift giving: Am I giving gifts to receive gifts back? Am I giving because of the expectations of others? Am I giving out of fear of not being enough? Alternative “giving” ideas: Volunteer as a family to give back to those that are truly without or in needAnimal shelters Homeless shelters Battered women's shelters Big Brother, Big Sister Blue or Brown Santa Making blankets for homeless Write holiday letters to seniors in assisted living facilities or to children in hospitals Days of kindness; finding one opportunity every day to lift a stranger up Pick an Angel from the Salvation Army Tree (no longer a the mall; located at Wal-mart) Spend quality time togetherGame night Walking the neighborhood admiring holiday lights Holiday crafts Caroling, the gift of song Do yard work for neighbors Host a neighborhood food drive : Other mentions: Volunteer Match https://www.volunteermatch.org/ Operation Blue Santa https://www.bluesanta.org/ Salvation Army Angel Tree https://www.salvationarmyusa.org/usn/walmart-angel-tree/ Build-A-Bear Foundation https://www.buildabear.com/build-a-bear-foundation.html : Announcements: We've launched Divine Living: Style & Decor!

Opening doors, sending flowers and general respect are things that Jae Schmutz has practiced for years. He has seen the importance of modeling positive behavior towards his wife as he teaches his two children what is important to him. Raised by involved and loving parents but losing his mother at an early age to cancer, Jae learned the value of traditions, prioritizing time with family and taking advantage of opportunities to make memories while we have them. Jae's perspective on chivalry, manners and respect will give you a renewed sense of encouragement to treat others the way you wish to be treated and affect a positive change in our society, one interaction at a time, starting in each of our own homes.

Reviving the Sacred in a Secular World Throughout history, humans have seen themselves as part of a larger world, one where God or gods and the supernatural were fundamental. In western societies today, that is no longer true. Our secular culture ignores the supernatural as a way of understanding the way things are. Is it possible to re-sensitize modern society to the sacred? Listen as Lenny joins the Apologetics.com radio panel to discuss how we have become callous to the things of God.
If sin kills renewal, repentance revives renewal. The Israelites come together to confront their sins and engage in heartfelt repentance through honest confession, intentional action, and accepting chastisement. Therefore, when we engage in heartfelt repentance, we experience the peace, restoration, and transformation of God.
Each year since the inception of this podcast in 2017, I have done a Five Unusual Things to Be Thankful For episode during Thanksgiving week. This episode is never one of my most-downloaded episodes, but it is one of my favorites. It is also one of my most personal and vulnerable episodes each year. The purpose is two-fold: To get you thinking about the things in your life that you could look at differently – and to show gratitude for those things that maybe didn't feel so good at the time they were happening. I like to put it this way: Why is this happening for me? Not to me, but for me – for my benefit. The universe isn't out to get me…I'm not a victim here. Here, then, is my 2022 list of unusual things to be thankful for: 5. A great Virtual Assistant (VA). This one's maybe not so unusual, except that I had previously tried to find a VA with zero success. My VA, Robin, has been a game-changer for my business…and she's an absolute delight to work with! I am so very thankful for Robin. My message for you: When we look backward and determine our future based on our past, we are missing the point. If I had decided Robin wouldn't work out because the others hadn't, I would have missed out on one of the most beneficial investments I make every month into my business. Circumstances will be different this time…people will be different this time…YOU will be different this time. 4. When there are no options. In my world of making dozens of decisions every day, it's nice when there really is no decision to be made…when the path is clear and obvious. This year, this happened early on when I found out I had to have major surgery at the end of May and wouldn't be able to walk my dogs for at least six weeks. I was living in an apartment at that time. I really had no option other than to move to a house with a fenced-in backyard. This also happened back in 2020 when my 12-year-old Honda Odyssey all but stopped working. I took it to my mechanic, who couldn't find the electrical problem that was causing the battery to drain daily, back doors not to open and close…and don't even get me started with the haunted interior lights. No option but to purchase a new vehicle. I'm really good at making decisions and having my own back about those decisions. HOWEVER, it's nice to know exactly what you need to do. My message for you: Let easy things be easy. Don't overcomplicate things. Don't assume moving or making a major purchase is going to be hard…just maybe, it won't be. 3. Growing pains. This has been a year of refining my systems and processes to take my business to the next level – along with the mindset needed to see myself differently as my role within the business changes. Of course, I could have kept on with “business as usual” – nothing wrong with that. Except that's not how I roll. I want bigger…I want to serve more clients…I want to have more influence in the world. So these growing pains are absolutely necessary – and it won't be the last time I experience them. My message for you: Don't let yourself stagnate. Be brave and willing to experience the growing pains of seeking a promotion, a new job, a new relationship, new friendships…whatever you desire. Don't expect it to be comfortable or easy or without a few hiccups. Know that the discomfort and difficulties are part of the deal…and that's okay. 2. Reviving a past interest…and finding it's still there. In the process of moving, I knew I wanted a new dining table – I've always hated the one I had. I ended up getting a high-quality table from a local thrift store for $75 that needed a lot of love. After putting about that much money into supplies and a lot of time and elbow grease, it is now my pride and joy. I was coaching a client this week about her job dissatisfaction. I encouraged her to have fun – try some new things, revisit some old things she used to enjoy, be willing to NOT have fun in an effort to have A LOT of fun. This will make her job dissatisfaction have less of an impact on her life. My message for you: Exactly what I coached my client to do. Have you always wanted to make cheese, or learn salsa dancing, or take a Japanese cooking class? DO IT. Did you used to love riding your bike, or horseback riding, or painting? DO IT AGAIN. Step outside your comfort zone. The further, the better. 1. Listening to my gut. I find that my gut is always right. In this incident, I was considering a major purchase for my business. I had an initial sales call that I found difficult to follow…and then the follow-up he promised didn't happen. Then I got a free trial but couldn't utilize it. When I reached out to them for help, they never responded. Then I spoke with two people using the software and heard less-than-glowing reviews. Most recently, I am receiving multiple client referral emails from them every day despite the fact that I am NOT NOR HAVE EVER BEEN THEIR CUSTOMER. It's taken three contacts to get these to stop. My message for you: Listen to your gut. If the facts line up with what your gut is telling you, great. If the facts don't line up with what your gut is telling you, go with your gut. Stop with the rationalizations and accommodations. This works for people too: If someone is showing you who they are, BELIEVE THEM. Happy Thanksgiving! Here's to another year of unusual things to be thankful for. Are you in the wrong job that chips away at you every day?

This week, Tyler Staton joins us to talk about reviving a culture of prayer in a post-Christian world. Prayer is the source of Jesus's most astonishing miracles and the subject of Jesus's most audacious promises, and yet, most people--even most Bible-believing Christians--find prayer to be boring, obligatory, disappointing, confusing, or, most often, all of the above. If you've ever felt this way, today's conversation is hopefully going to turn your conceptions around. If you enjoy this episode with Tyler, I'm sure you'll also enjoy the following: 246: Christine Caine on Drifting in Your Purpose, Deconstruction, Irrational Fear, and Why She Almost Quit 310: Dharius Daniels on Emotional Intelligence, Living Outside Your Identity, and the Misguided Pursuit of “Your Best Self” ++++++ Episode Links: Tyler's Website | Instagram | Buy "Pray Like Monks," Tyler's new book, on Amazon!

Oscar Trimboli: The sophisticated and paradoxical power of deciding if and when to listen. G'day, It's Oscar, and today we have a question from a Deep Listening Ambassador in Japan. Shaney: Hi Oscar. This is Shaney from Tsukuba Ibaraki, Japan, and my question is about listening as a leader. Do you have any suggestions about how to continue to listen deeply as a leader when you tend to receive comments, suggestions, and ideas from so many people all day every day. It can be quite surprising for people who are new to leadership positions to realize just how much time leaders spend listening to people and how tiring it can be when the fourth or the eighth person in a day asks you if you have a minute and then launches into a rant or a criticism or a suggestion of how to improve something. Listening is so very important to leadership, but it can also be really, really hard to listen to comments and suggestions all day long, especially because you feel a personal obligation to fix the problems that people bring to you. Oscar Trimboli: Thanks, Shaney. This is a wonderful paradoxical and universal question independent of organization, culture, location, or country. My favorite kind of question, if you like Shaney, have a question about listening in the workplace, email firstname.lastname@example.org This question, it's a question about choice and timing. It could be about when to listen and when NOT to listen. It's also a question about attention and your listening batteries. When it comes to your listening batteries throughout the day, you need to check and notice what's your battery level right now is a green, yellow, red. You need to check what color your listening battery is before you start listening. Something I learned from James Clear in episode 67, advice is often context dependent. Shaney, I'm going to avoid giving you advice here as James points out questions can help you navigate beyond the context. Let's listen to how James explained it. James Clear: And one of the women that as a reader of mine and I talked to as I was working on the book, she lost a lot of weight, and she had this really great question that she carried around with her. Questions are often more useful than advice in the sense that advice is very context dependent. It's like, "Oh, it works in this situation, but what if you find yourself in a different situation now it doesn't apply as much." And the question that she carried around with her was what would a healthy person do? And so she could go from context to context and sort of have that question to reinforce the identity. That's actually in many ways, more useful than having a good workout program or a good diet plan because that you can only do once. But no matter where you're at, you can ask what would a healthy person do? Oscar Trimboli: Shaney, I'll share with you four types of questions, four categories of questions for groups of questions that have helped my other clients. It's important to understand that the question you are asked is very, very common and it's amplified when you're in a leadership role. The categories of the four questions are what, when, how, and who. Let's start with WHAT. What would make this a good conversation? What would make this a great conversation? What would make this an effective conversation? What do you want from this conversation? In the book, how to listen, we cover off the use of this question throughout the book, creating a listening compass for you and the other participants. It's a great way to hack the conversation to make it much shorter for you and for them. The reason we want to ask a WHAT question right up front is you want to understand the context for them and for you, because shortly I'm going to invite you to make a choice about when you should think about answering this question, Shaney. So let's move to WHEN Here's a group of questions to think about. When is the best time to discuss this with you? When is the best time for us to discuss it? And finally, although I'd love to discuss it right now and listen to you, I don't think I can effectively listen to what you want to achieve in this conversation. Can we discuss this at another time? Professor Cal Newport is very particular about the value he places on his time. And rather than dealing with each individual and their specific question, request feedback experiment, he encourages each of his students or peers to attend a regular weekly meeting. In that meeting, everybody can bring their request or their question along. He does this for three very specific reasons. 1. he has a defined time and more importantly, a defined process for dealing with these random rants, as you call them, Shaney, or the feedback or any of the other issues he's dealing with. He's placing them in space, time, and context where he can arrive with his listening batteries fully charged. 2. he creates the environment where others can participate. Others can listen to the range of questions that Professor Newport is asked, as well as listening to the way he thinks about answering these questions. 3. he thinks about his time being multiplied in a group context with many of the participants either self-solving when hearing others' answers, resolving their question with other participants, helping them in doing so. Newport is building a culture of mutual support. He's making himself independent of the process, and ultimately Newport explains how he would approach thinking about the issue rather than his recommendation to the other person or group about how to solve the issue. Shaney, one of the things I invite you to think about is if you feel like you need to fix, give them a simple framework to think it through rather than giving them an answer. In adopting this approach, Newport creates a sustainable listening process ensuring his listening batteries are fully charged before arriving at this regular meeting, whether it's face to face or virtual. Shaney, back in episode 61, when I discussed this issue with Professor Stefan Van der Stigchel from Utrecht University, he's written multiple books on the importance of attention. He reflected on his more direct approach when students or peers approached him with a question. Stefan Van der Stigchel: People come into my room when I'm on my work quite often to ask me questions or to talk about a certain experiment. And of course, when you're in your working environment, they're things are not always positive, right? What I've tried to learn is that communicate to, if people enter my room to say, this is not the right moment. I cannot listen to you. My mind is not open, my working memory is full, I'm worrying about something. And I've started to realize that people actually appreciate that if you say it in the past, there are too many occasions in which I was claiming to be listening and they ask me questions and I just noticed my mind is somewhere else. My mind wandering about the meeting before, and then I simply have to admit that I have no idea what they're talking about. And that's quite embarrassing and it's frustrating what I've learned from my peers that there are people who can acknowledge that they can acknowledge if somebody walks into the room, ask them a scientific question, please, not now. It's good to have a culture and in a work environment when you can admit that although I might be looking at you right now, I am honestly not listening. And this is not due to you. You're very interesting and you're probably a very interesting question. But what's happening to me right now is that my mind is wandering, and I'm not ready to receive your information. Again, my environment, people have to learn that's a possibility and that they can come back at a later time, but it's not something personal. Previously what happened to me is that I was sort of almost afraid to tell the other person because I was afraid that they were going to take it personally, right? That you are not interesting to me. And I try to make sure that it's not about them, but it's simply that the current situation is for some reason not appropriate. Oscar Trimboli: Shaney, when thinking about the WHEN of listening, the most generous thing, the most sustainable outcome for you, and the person asking the question, the rant, the person wanting to bounce something off you. The most generous thing I think you can do is NOT listen. When you're listening, batteries are drained when they're moving from yellow to red or from red to black. It doesn't help them, you or the organization you lead by listening, transactionally, listening superficially, bouncing between level one and maybe level two, listening for symptoms rather than moving between level two, three and four and listening for systemic implications. Listening is a skill, it's a practice, it's a process and ultimately a way to impact systemic change in a sustainable way for the organization you'd lead. As I mentioned earlier on, Shaney, the question you pose is a universal leadership issue. It's a common question my clients ask me. This is an interview with Katie Burke, who is the leader of people and culture at HubSpot, an organization where she's responsible for 6,000 employees globally. In this interview with Shane Metcalf, Chief People Officer for 15Five an employee engagement software company from June 21, it was called Reviving the Art of Listening with HubSpot's Katie Burke. Listen carefully as Katie describes how she manages her energy to make a bigger impact with her listening. Notice how she conserves her listening batteries and shares the difficult and draining parts of listening with other leaders and members of her team. Katie Burke: In my own journey on this front, I think a few things that have really worked for me, I got some really tough feedback my first few years as CPO that I was distracted and I was, and it was because I was trying to be everywhere at once and be all things to all people. And so the biggest tack for listening that I know is I say NO to almost everything, including I don't get a ton of energy from doing one-on-one coffee chats with people. I've just learned over the years. I feel like I'm saying the same thing over and over again. And also just I got emotionally worn down. It was just tiring. And so I don't do our new hire welcome as a group anymore because it just felt a little tiring. And then I don't do a ton of coffee chats both internally and externally. And the reason I don't do that is not because I don't enjoy doing that occasionally, it was because it was starting to really interfere with my ability to listen and be a great leader for my team. Great listening actually starts with being intentional around what you say no to. So you can be present for the people in your org and be the best leader possible when you're there. Shane Metcalf: It's so interesting around our own energy management, our own state is going to dictate are we able to listen? Especially HR is often the punching bag in an organization because HR people, we are the recipient of so much feedback, positive and negative, humans get flooded with emotion. When we're in a fight or flight state, there's a physiological change that happens in our ears and we actually stop listening. What I'm hearing from you is you needed to set boundaries and create the experience for you to do work that energizes you so that you could actually listen. Katie Burke: I personally think there should be much more discussion for CHROs, for HR business partners, for anyone who bears the emotional breadth of an organization, of talking about how I think people talk a lot about self-care and break and rest. Those are all great, but don't get to the core fix. And I think what I had to learn is I have to actually just be really disciplined around my schedule because it creates space for me to do the things that I know make me a better listener. And for me, that's getting outside once a day, getting my run in the morning. I'm a much better person, leader, manager, you name it. If I get outside and get a workout in. And then the other thing is just being intentional around what gives you energy and being honest about that. I grew up very much a people pleaser. It was a really hard habit for me to break, and I don't think people love that. It's my habit. I've had to get really comfortable with the fact that it is the only thing that allows me to keep listening, to HubSpotters and being a good leader for my team. Shane Metcalf: It's a worthwhile process for all of us to check in. Am I actually in a state where I can listen? Because I've gone through this, I've gone through periods where I'm like, I don't want to hear any more feedback. I'm sick of it. People just complain. We're never going to make people happy. I'm in the pretty negative state and then I have no receptivity to actually listen to what my people are saying and anything they say will probably be viewed through that lens of I don't want to hear it. Katie Burke: Agreed. I've also just had to say no. There are times when I think taking a meeting does you want to listen to someone. If you're not, there is actually a bad use of both of your time. And so one of the things I've said to some people is. Hey, I'm actually not in a great spot to really have the conversation I think we need to have, and so I need to wait until tomorrow. I need to wait until I'm in a better spot or I think someone on my team is better suited to have this conversation given that they can really understand and empathize where you are because I think when people are in an acute state, they need someone to listen to them a 100%. I need to be honest if you're not there. The other thing is just that's where I come back to you're not going to make everyone happy. I used to hold myself to a really high bar. I wanted to think that everyone who, if we had a tough meeting to listen to people that everyone would leave saying like, "Wow, our people operations team is great." What I've started doing is now leaving those meetings where the goal is just to make people feel heard, not to make them feel better, just to make them feel heard. That takes some of the pressure off because the other thing is I'm a bias for action person. I tend to lean into how do we solve things? It takes the pressure off to solve it because my only job there is to be present to what they're feeling. Oscar Trimboli: Shaney, the most impactful, sustainable, and generous listening could be when you choose NOT to listen in that moment, reacting and trying to fight the urge to fix, kind of showing up like the shrewd listening villa from our listening quiz, becoming conscious that your ego wants to fix, solve, and answer. It's great in the moment, but it doesn't drive systemic change. Create a phrase that works for you. The four A's at this point, ask, acknowledge, assess, and agree. Ask what would make this a good conversation or outcome? Acknowledge their point and issue or even question, or problem Assess when is the most effective time for a sustainable, impactful discussion? Agree, when or who to meet with to progress it. Shaney, we've covered the what and when. I just want to quickly talk to you about how and who. These additional categories of questions are really useful when the conversation happens. First, let's talk about HOW. How would you like to discuss it? How will we allocate our time exploring the past and the future? How long have you been thinking about this? How will we know if we've made progress? Let's move on to the WHO Who else noticed this issue originally? Who else does it impact? and Who needs to be involved in discussing or resolving it? Shaney, to make this very practical, very pragmatic, and actionable for you. My go-to question for the random rant, the curious question, or the feisty feedback, What would make this a good conversation for you? They will either tell you they want to have a rant with no outcome, or they may request you to be their thinking partner, or more likely than not, they'll try and put the problem-solving monkey back on your back. At this point, Shaney, notice the pattern in their questions three or more of the same kinds of questions. You're probably dealing with a systemic issue, and I speculate you probably can't solve it alone, or at least in the pair that are discussing the problem. Define an allocated time on a regular basis for you to triage all of these kinds of discussions into one context where your listening batteries are fully charged. As Katie mentioned, sometimes people just want you to hear them out rather than fix, especially when you don't have the listening batteries available to listen and fix in the moment. Finally, every conversation doesn't and can't be a process of deep listening. You can't always deeply listen. You need to be flexible and adjust accordingly in the situation. Sometimes just being present and allowing them to be heard will be enough. This makes your listening light and easy and it doesn't drain your listening batteries. A quick reminder, your role as a listener is not to comprehend everything the speaker says. It's your role to help the speaker better understand what and how they're thinking about an issue and ultimately help them to understand what they mean and where they want to progress. Shaney, thanks for the brilliant question. G'day. It's Oscar. This podcast episode is an experiment in a few parts and one of the things that's happened in between the time Shaney sent me the question, I recorded the responses that I sent it back to her in draft format to ask her for a few reflections. I gave her four questions to ponder. Shaney listened to what I sent her and shared it with her team, and I've asked her to reflect on four questions. Also, in between that time I have been completely flat on my back with a virus for seven days, so my voice is probably sounding a little different. What you'll hear next is Shaney reflecting back on the questions I posed to her. Let me know what was most helpful in what I've explored. Shaney: I don't need to fix, solve, or answer anything when I'm listening to people. I just need to make sure that people are heard. When I played it for my team, they really reacted positively to the concept of a listening battery and also to the idea that not every conversation can or should be a process of deep listening. Oscar Trimboli: Which one of these will you experiment with? Which one will be easy for you to implement? and What will be sustainable in the context in which you leave? Shaney: I will definitely be trying to remember not to go into conversations with the intent to solve anything. This will be very hard for me as I have a lifetime habit of doing just that. I think that this is very important and as a leader, I really need to try to help the people that I'm talking to find ways to solve their own problems instead of trying to solve them for them. People take more ownership of decisions and outcomes when they come to their own conclusions, so I'd like to learn more about how I can suppress my urge to fix things. I need to do a better job of listening to ensure that my colleagues are heard and that they're supported in finding solutions that work for themselves in their own context rather than just me giving advice to them that may or may not work because I may or may not have fully accounted for the context that they're working in. In my team, we talked about how saying no can be quite difficult in our context as one of our goals is to be approachable and available to the students, parents, and staff members at our school. We talked about how we can conserve our batteries by acknowledging the person and their query and actively deciding whether or not this is the best time to have the conversation. We think that can work well with students and parents, but we're still not sure how to say no in a compassionate way that doesn't make our colleagues feel like they're being ignored or rebuffed when they approach us to talk about something that may be, for example, personal or professional. The when is difficult for us. It's pretty difficult for some of my colleagues to have control over when their conversations happen with their colleagues. They can set appointments for students and parents, but conversations with colleagues happen all the time. Two of the colleagues that were in the meeting with me have an office that is in a rather public area, so people walk by and talk to them all the time, and that can be really tiring and they can often get involved in conversations about both professional topics and personal topics, and they mentioned that it can be tiring to switch back and forth between the professional and the personal conversations. We decided as a team that we might experiment with having a set time in our meetings where our colleagues can bring up the professional issues that have come up through the week. This could be one way to say, not now kindly, at least when the issue is professional, by acknowledging the issue and saying, let's talk about it at the next meeting. What would be easy to implement? It would be relatively easy to implement the idea of having a pre-conversation with the person we're speaking with to determine what would make the conversation a success. It could even happen during or after the conversation, or it could be something that we try to remember to ask ourselves as we enter into various conversations throughout the day, And finally, what would be sustainable in the context that we lead? In my context, it's sustainable for me to become more conscious of how my ego is reacting to whatever is being said and to remember to have an awareness of both the state of my listening batteries and that I can choose not to listen deeply at that moment if that is the more considerate and humane response because my batteries are particularly low at that moment. Oscar, I can't believe you made an entire podcast for me and my question. I loved every second of it. I sincerely feel that all of it was useful and productive. You really listened to my question. You heard it and you understood the heart behind the words. Oscar Trimboli: If you like Shaney, have a question about listening in the workplace or you'd like me to pose a few questions or reflections or framework rather than just answering your question, email@example.com. And if you don't have a question yet, you learn something from the question Shaney posed today and possibly hers or her team's reflection, email me firstname.lastname@example.org Let me know what was useful in this episode, the format, the interaction, the questions rather than the answers, and what possibly is transferable and useful into your workplace. I'm Oscar Trimboli and along with the Deep Listening Ambassadors, we're on a quest to create a 100 million Deep Listeners in the workplace and you've given us the greatest gift of all. You've listened to us. Thanks for listening. Shaney : Hi Oscar, it's taken a while, but over the past couple of days, I've been able to catch myself in conversations and work on directing my listening The first step -- self-awareness is so hard, but so crucial as you can't take any other steps until you're actually aware that you're in a situation where you need to test out your new conscious listening paradigm. In at least three conversations over the past two days, I've been able to get to that level of self-awareness that allows me to pause and remind myself not to try to solve any problems for anyone else, and instead try to ask myself what would make this conversation a success. This is revolutionary, the whole flavor of conversations changes. I'm able to relax and actually listen to the person if I don't have to feel the pressure of solving anything. Conversations are also shorter because people feel heard more quickly and are okay with moving on, so I'm ever so grateful to you and your podcast for opening up my eyes to this whole new world.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel like a great historical adventurer? Today I am joined by Elise Wortley, a journalist on a mission to quite literally walk in the shoes of some of history's most fierce female explorers. After reading Alexandra David-Néel's book My Journey to Lhasa at age 16 (and again at 28), Elise was left with many questions about the trials and tribulations Alexandra must have faced being a female traveler in the early 1900s. In search of answers, she set off to India to follow in the author's footsteps, using only items that would have been available during the original journey - a Yak wool coat and wooden backpack. This trip has snowballed into multiple adventures sprinkled throughout the globe, tracing footprints from the past. If you love adventure, you will not want to miss this episode. Elise shares epic stories from her travels and describes exactly what it was like to travel without modern luxuries, important lessons she's learned from the journeys, actions she took to start her first journey, and so much more. Which modern technology do you think would be the hardest to give up when traveling? I'd love to hear your thoughts and hope you will share them by sending me an audio message.
