For this conversation, we spoke with Greg McKeown, the New York Times-bestselling author of the books Multipliers, Essentialism, and Effortless, which was just released earlier this year. When we read both Essentialism and Effortless, we knew we wanted to have Greg on the podcast. Everything he wrote in these books seemed immediately applicable; not just in our lives or careers, but even towards our membership in the Church.Greg is also a Latter-day Saint, and he was able to talk with us about how the concepts of his books apply to issues that are often on the minds of fellow church members—things like callings, raising families, and managing work/life balance.Greg's writing has appeared or been covered by The New York Times, Fast Company, Fortune, HuffPost, Politico, Inc. Magazine, and the Harvard Business Review. He's also appeared on many television and radio programs, including NPR, NBC, and Fox. Greg is originally from London, England, and now lives in Calabasas, California with his wife, Anna, and their four children. He did his graduate work at Stanford University.

Francis Fukuyama, one of the most important living political scientists, is a senior fellow at Stanford University's Freeman Spogli Institute. His writing spans from the origins of society in earliest prehistory to the rise of modern democracy and the identity wars of the 21st century. His new book, Liberalism and Its Discontents, a defense of the values of free societies, is scheduled for release in April 2022.   In this week's conversation, Francis Fukuyama and Yascha Mounk discuss how neoliberalism has gone awry, the excesses of individualism on both the right and the left, and how to rejuvenate liberalism.

Speaker: Pang Laikwan, Professor of Cultural Studies, Chinese University of Hong Kong This paper focuses on the wide popularity of the meme and buzzword jiucai, garlic chives, on China's internet to investigate the cultural and political subjectivity of the ordinary Chinese citizens in a time of fierce competition simply to survive, largely known as neijuan, involution. Through this investigation of the garlic chives meme, the paper also updates Foucault's theory of the biopolitics by investigating the deeply intertwined relation between the biological, the economic, and the political in contemporary Chinese governmentality. While the post-socialist PRC has developed a sophisticated economic rationality to legitimize its state sovereignty, this economic sovereignty also strains the ordinary subjects so much that it begins to pose serious challenge to this legitimacy. PANG Laikwan is Professor of Cultural Studies at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. She is the author of a few books, including, more recently, The Appearing Demos: Hong Kong During and After the Umbrella Movement (U of Michigan, 2021), The Art of Cloning: Creative Production During China's Cultural Revolution (Verso, 2017), andCreativity and Its Discontents: China's Creative Industries and Intellectual Property Rights Offenses (Duke UP, 2012). She will be a CASBS fellow at Stanford University in the academic year of 2021-2022.

Episode Summary: When COVID-19 hit and society decided to use mRNA vaccines for the first time, many questions remained about whether RNA itself was ready for the challenge. But three scientists at Stanford University who had barely worked with each other before the pandemic realized that RNA's limitations were merely a design challenge and not an issue with the substrate itself. Through emails and zooms, Kathrin, Gun, and Hannah built a tool to massively test RNA designs. With it, they screened for RNA with better functionality, increasing the stability and expression of the protein they encode and ultimately creating a platform to improve these life-saving vaccines. Episode Notes:About the AuthorsHannah, Gun, and Kathrin had all been separately researching various aspects of genetics and RNA before the pandemic.When COVID hit and RNA vaccines were being built, the three realized they had newly complementary skill sets.They set aside their individual projects, leveraged their unique backgrounds, and worked in shifts to abide by social distance rules in order to solve multiple issues facing RNA as a substrate for vaccines.Key TakeawaysRNA holds great potential for therapies and vaccines as they are highly programmable, extremely flexible, and are much easier to scale than other options.But RNA is hard to deploy for vaccines because it is extremely unstable both in the body and on the shelf.Enhancing the expression and stability of RNA allows us to reduce the amount needed to give a person, increasing the number of people that can be vaccinated.The three designed PERSIST-seq to test a multitude of RNA designs in one-pot by leveraging synthetic biology and next generation sequencing.They also leveraged citizen science through a “game” called Eterna in order to optimize sequences using the collective brain power of humanity.With it in they found synonymous mutations and alterations to the untranslated regions that changed RNA folding and improved stability and translation.TranslationPERSIST-seq must still be validated in animal models to fully connect how improvements on stability and expression alter vaccine efficacy.The team is ready to leverage their approach through licensing to help RNA vaccine companies improve their designs.The design rules and method to discover them can be used to enhance any RNA therapeutic that will undoubtedly be coming through the pipeline soon.First Authors: Kathrin Leppek, Gun Woo Byeon, and Hannah Wayment-SteelePaper: Combinatorial optimization of mRNA structure, stability, and translation for RNA-based therapeutics

Welcome to season five of The Shine Podcast. This season is going to be focused on leaders and topics related to how we continue to move through the challenges and the complexity that we are all navigating in our workplaces, our home life and the greater world. In today's episode, I will share what I know about the science on triggers, why they are caused, and where they're coming from. I am going to offer you a few helpful practices on how to calm emotional triggers that you can use in your life and share with others. My goal is to help you learn how to cultivate a strong inner game that will enable you to navigate triggers skillfully. The inner game rules the outer game, and the six qualities of the inner game that I've identified and highlighted in my new book really support one to navigate triggers skillfully, create healthy boundaries, and then have the brave exchanges so that the patterns that cause the trigger are minimized, and/or maybe even uprooted.   SHINE Links: Leading from Wholeness Executive Coaching Leading from Wholeness Learning and Development Resources Shine: Ignite Your Inner Game to Lead Consciously at Work and in the World by Carley Hauck Contact Carley Hauck Book Carley for speaking Sign up for the Podcast! Carley on LinkedIn   Resources mentioned in this episode: “How to Deal With Anger at Work” by Carley Hauck   The Imperfect Shownotes   Carley Hauck 0:01   Hi, my name is Carley Hauck. Welcome to another episode of the SHINE podcast. This is the first interview of season five, which will total out 2021. And for those of you that are just joining, I'd love to give you a little backstory on the SHINE podcast and how it came to be.   It started in May 2019, where I was finally sharing lots of interviews that I had previously conducted with incredible leaders as part of the research for my new book, which I spent almost five years writing and debuted this year, February 23 2021, Shine: Ignite Your Inner Game to Lead Consciously at Work and in the World, my publisher is Sounds True.   And I have been really delighted by the response of people to the book, but the podcast continues to go strong. And the podcast is really about the intersection of three things: conscious, inclusive leadership, the recipe for high performing teams and awareness practices. And I go into the science, the spiritual perspective, and then the actual application of this into your life. I will be facilitating two to three episodes a month. And before I tell you about our topic today, I'd love if you could go over to Apple podcasts, hit the subscribe button. And if you love this episode, or any previous episodes that you might want to tune into, if you could write a positive review, it helps so much. And it supports people to find this podcast. Thank you.   This particular season is going to be focused on leaders and topics related to how we continue to move through the challenges and the complexity that we are all navigating in our workplaces, our home life and the greater world. We are in a spiritual and collective awakening, I am sure. And I hope that this podcast will be the light that will support you to shine your light. Our topic for today is how to calm emotional triggers at work and in life. And this is going to be by yours truly.   Carley Hauck 3:10   Has this ever happened to you? Listen to some possibilities. You're at work. You had an experience where most of the day was off, maybe you woke up late. meetings were suddenly canceled, rescheduled but you were prepared. Other folks were expressing impatience, frustration, and communication processes were not easy. And you felt triggered.   This might have happened at home. You could be navigating challenging children, you're working from home. They're at home too. Maybe you have a sick parent in your life, you're feeling under the weather yourself. Or perhaps you're navigating flash flooding, or smoking fires due to climate change. And it's throwing your inner calm and balance off. You feel triggered.   What I'm speaking to is pretty normal. And especially in a highly complex and always changing workplace and world. We are all navigating so much right now. We have been and it's been highlighted in the last 18 or so months since the beginning of the pandemic. Many of our so-called freedoms have been taken away. We're still wearing masks in most public places. We've been more socially isolated than any other time. And as a result are being forced to be on technology more than ever to meet our social needs and to be high performing leaders at work or just folks at work. Being connected to screens and technology is not something that we should be on this many hours a day.   Why? Because when we look at our hunter gatherer ancestors, they were living in community, living in deeper harmony with the land with their food systems. They were engaging in regular exercise, dance song, and expressive arts. Now we are a far cry from living like that. But our nervous systems aren't used to this much arousal. And what I mean by arousal is, when we are on our technology, our devices, these EMF that we're pretty much bombarded with all day long. Guess what it does to the body? It raises our blood pressure or heart rate, and therefore, our arousal, our nervous system response, and we may be perceiving things to be stressful when they actually are not. It is easier under the conditions we are living in to become more triggered, versus calm and responsive.   Carley Hauck 6:21   And so in this episode, I will share what I know about the science on triggers, why they are caused, where they're coming from, and a few helpful practices that you can use in your life, and also share with others. I have been teaching and leading a certain practice around triggers for the last few years, and I have shared it with thousands of folks and leaders in reputable companies. It's also listed in chapter two of my book. And in fact, just about a week or so ago, I shared this particular practice on a training that I facilitated with leaders on increasing empathy and emotional intelligence with some amazing folks at Capital One.   To tell you why I know a lot about triggers and why I developed this practice, I needed help with triggers. I needed help with my own triggers. And so this is where it began. I was dating a man, this was in 2017. We were in a relationship for a few months, and we were deepening into intimacy. And guess what, when intimacy happens, and the veils start to come down, you're going to trigger each other, there's going to be conflict, conflict is part of relationship, it's part of life. And if you're not having conflict in your relationships, then there's probably not a deeper connection. And conflict doesn't have to end the relationship.   In fact, by having the relational skills to navigate it with care and wisdom, it can create more trust, more psychological safety, more intimacy, more connection, more collaboration, even more innovation.   So back to this relationship experience, my partner was triggered. And he did and said some things that then created triggers in me. I am always up for staying in the midst of difficulty and staying in relationship and repairing. And, you know, trying to heal, that's just my orientation. I am a person that really values harmony. And it was a real struggle to do that in our relating. Because he would get triggered, he would go into avoidance, I would get triggered, and I would freeze. And then I wasn't able to do or say the things that would hopefully calm him down, calm myself down. And it was horrible to watch myself.   And the relationship ended. And it was meant to end, we wouldn't have been good partners or people for each other. And I knew that shortly into the relationship but you know, it was only a few months you're figuring it out. Again, conflict is normal and it's normal at work, and it's definitely normal in dating. Conflicts and triggers will arise but it can actually be something that helps you to grow closer, if you have the skills like I'm going to share with you in this episode.   Carley Hauck 10:09   So I developed this practice that I'm going to share with you in a couple minutes. Because I can only choose how I respond, I don't have control of the other. But in the moment that I feel scared, I feel triggered, I can choose how I want to respond if I have awareness and if I have the tools. And so shortly after I developed this practice, I wrote an article on this process. And the article is called “How to Deal With Anger at Work”.   And it was with the digital magazine conscious company, which is now part of socap. In 2018, this was one of the top 20 articles read that year. I felt very proud of that and thought, wow, lots of people need help with triggers, so it felt really lovely to be able to be in service in that way.   So what is a trigger? I've been saying this word a lot, a trigger is in current time, or a cue, or an event that re-stimulates sensations of the past trauma, it can be a word, it can be a verb. For example, a loud voice can be a trigger, a person's fear of being controlled or overpowered. That may have come from early childhood experiences. Additionally, another trigger could be a lack of response, you know, you reach out to someone, or you're trying to have a communication and there's no response. And that could actually create a trigger of abandonment or neglect, so to speak.   And so in the midst of the pandemic, we are becoming more comfortable speaking about trauma, and you heard the definition that I spoke to it could be something that's happening in current time, a cue or an event that really stimulates sensations of the past trauma. So we are becoming more comfortable talking about trauma, talking about mental illness in the workplace, it has always been here. But due to the increased pressure, the social isolation I was talking about before, and the large challenges we were navigating at work and in the world. The symptoms that maybe we were suppressing, maybe we were covering with unhealthy coping mechanisms like alcohol or shopping, or who knows, that can only be pushed down so long before it starts to fester and come to the surface.   Carley Hauck 13:02   And so I want to just preface that if you notice that you've been more triggered recently, in your life, this might be an important time to do some deeper inner work to go into, why is this happening more and more. Most of us have emotional healing to do. And that often affects what we are triggered by. And if we don't acknowledge what is causing the trigger, then those patterns continue and we won't be able to heal or navigate them with more skill. And I speak from experience here one I noticed myself, I've been more triggered recently, in the midst of the pandemic, I have been navigating some very uncertain and complex challenges, more so than normal. And I won't get into all of that. But just to just a preface. I am there with you if you're feeling this too.   And prior to my work and leadership and organizational development consulting, I was going through a very rigorous training, thinking that I might want to be a full time therapist but I actually decided that I wanted to do coaching and consulting more and was already starting to do that. But along the way I I went through lots and lots of supervised hours.   As a marriage and family therapist intern in the Bay Area of California I actually conducted over 3,000 supervised hours as I was learning how to be a therapist, but I was also working as a coach and getting supervision as a coach. I worked specifically for an entire year with men who had deep levels of PTSD and trauma who had been living in San Francisco's in the 80s, and had contracted HIV and AIDS. And so I bring that up because I have worked deeply with folks that are suffering from trauma. And I also worked with families and couples, and was watching the attachment trauma.   Now I bring up attachment trauma, because it actually is related to triggers. So trauma can also have lasting effects in our nervous system in our bodies, if the traumatized person doesn't have an opportunity to process the event, to talk about the event, or be comforted by someone else, right after the event. So we can imagine if this is stemming from childhood, and we didn't have the words and we didn't feel safe to talk about it, and we didn't feel soothed by that experience, then we're probably still holding it. So these are all things to think about when we are thinking about triggers.   And one of the things I also just wanted to preface here and I don't have any answer, before I move into this process is I have worked with a lot of companies and leaders in the last decades around reworks. And reworks, for the most part, are not done very skillfully. The communication I find very harsh, it's not caring, people will have been working at a company for 20 years, maybe 10 years, maybe eight years. And suddenly, they're laid off, they didn't see it coming. And the family at work that they've been a part of that they've been putting their life force, their energy, their love their service, and is no longer there. And there were many layoffs in 2020. That can be traumatic for folks.   And I'd really love to invite workplaces and leaders that are listening, that let's create a different way of treating our people and caring for our people. When we tell them that it's time to go. No, there's this process that happens where when someone is getting laid off, they immediately don't have access to their computer or their files. And some people don't even get a chance to like, gather emails or documents. And I just don't think it's the most effective practice or process. So I don't have the solution.   But my question is, can we design a more compassionate and caring communication process for those that are being asked to leave their current role or their workplace that is honoring and respectful. And I imagine I will have a podcast interview on that topic another day.   Carley Hauck 18:10   But now I'd like to go into the next part of this interview, which is on how cultivating a strong inner game is going to enable you to navigate triggers skillfully. So the inner game is the body of work that I've been developing and teaching for over a decade with 1000s of folks, leadership positions, individual contributors, and students at Stanford University and UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business.   The inner game rules the outer game. And there are six qualities of the inner game that I've identified and that I highlight in my new book that I believe really support one to navigate triggers skillfully, create healthy boundaries, and then have the brave exchanges so that the patterns that cause the trigger are minimized, and maybe even extinguished.   So I value leading with authenticity. So I'm going to share with you all, how I got triggered the other day, and then how I used the six inner game skills to help me come back into balance and have the brave exchange. So I had scheduled two interviews for Friday of last week, and I was prepared for them, and they were on my schedule, and I was looking forward to them. The first interview was canceled due to a really challenging scenario with this particular leader that I was going to be speaking to. This client leader actually shared with me that she needed to reschedule our interview because there was a threat at her child's school and she recognized that she needed some space before having a call she she wasn't actually in the right headspace and so she asked to reschedule and so I really appreciated her cell phone In his her communication, her, her ability to notice she was triggered, she was not in a good place to talk.   And so I honored her. I said, of course, please take care of yourself. And yeah, just reschedule when it's good for you. So that was the first cancellation of the day, it was totally fine. And then next, I had a podcast interview that I had scheduled about a month ago with a friend and colleague of mine, and I was very excited to have the conversation. And I had sent the, you know, Google Calendar and the zoom link, and we had corresponded about it. And the time arrived, I was on zoom, I was waiting.   And there was five minutes that had passed, and I didn't see the guests. So I, so I texted this person. And then I emailed, then there was no response. I waited another few minutes. And because I know this guest, personally, I called them, there was no response. I texted, I sent these Zoom links again. And now it's getting to be around 15 minutes. And I was like, Okay, I guess this isn't happening today. I don't know what happened.   But in the moment, I felt confused. I noticed I felt frustrated, there was some impatience, there was disappointment. After about 25 minutes, there was still no response, there was no acknowledgement. And I wasn't too triggered. But I definitely noticed I was triggered.   And I'm going to share with you a process very soon to help you understand how triggered you are. I accepted that there was some fluke, and I decided, you know what I'm triggered, I'm going to go take a break, I'm going to come back into balance, and I need a break. Anyway, I've been on my computer a lot today. So I noticed that in all these feelings that came up, that there was a need to be acknowledged, there was a need for greater respect, there was a need for efficiency so that my time had been honored.   Carley Hauck 22:19   And I also noticed that there was a request from myself that if we were to reschedule, to do this podcast interview, again, that I would want to make sure that this person was available and capable of responding. You know, maybe 30 minutes before the interview, or even afterwards, just in case there was a technology glitch, or scheduling glitch, so that this didn't happen again. But the no acknowledgement after text after emails after, you know, a call, I thought that was really odd. And I would want to make sure that they were available, their phone was on, they knew, you know that they needed to be available, just in case anything happened so that we were in communication.   So I'm going to break down the process that I went through, that corresponds to the inner game. So self awareness is the first of the six inner game skills. So again, I was aware that I felt triggered. How did I know this, I was aware of the sensations in my body. My heart rate was higher, my blood pressure, I noticed I felt irritation, I was aware of some of the feelings that I already named.   Emotional intelligence is a second inner game skill. And that comprises four dimensions- self awareness, which I already spoke to self regulation, which is this ability to regulate one's nervous system. So I noticed I was feeling triggered, I needed to take some deep breaths, I needed to take a break and shake it off, so to speak. Social awareness is another component of emotional intelligence, and then relationship mastery to our parts of the inner game, and to our parts of the outer game, which you'll see show up when I go into the conversation that I want to have.   And so again, in my self regulation, I was breathing deeply. I actually went and sat outside in the sun, and I was really enjoying the sun because where I live right now in North Carolina, there has just been so much rain and so much gray weather, and I'm not used to it. So having this break in the middle of the day to get a little bit of sun poking through the clouds was actually a really beautiful gift.   And then the third inner game practice is resilience and we can think of that as growth mindset. So the thought that I had while this was happening is I wonder what happened. Why? Why is this happening? Right? Which is coming from more curiosity versus why are they doing this to me? Why did this happen? So I had this sense that there's a reason why this is happening. And you know why? Because I was supposed to do a solo podcast on this topic. That's why it allowed me to use my experience as a teachable moment. For triggers for this first episode of Season Five.   The fourth inner game practice is well being. So again, I took time to pause, I even sang a song in the car as I was driving to get out into the sun and singing helps me to calm down. I walked barefoot in the grass, I unplugged from technology, so I could really lower my arousal state. And I calm down.   Love, that's number five. I was able to turn towards myself with compassion, Carley, you've had like, two people cancel on you today, and your schedule has gotten a little rocked, right? It's a little unpleasant. I offered myself care. And then I offered compassion to this other person, I hope they're okay, hope everything's fine. And so if I'm not able to bring that inner game of love, and compassion, and even forgiveness towards myself, first, it's really hard to put that out into the world and into my relationships.   And the number six, the inner game of authenticity. When I moved into owning what was true for me, what were my feelings? What were my needs, and even going a layer deeper, I actually acknowledged that the trigger stirred some old emotional triggers for me that I've had due to childhood experiences, where I often felt like I was, you know, having to be super responsible, holding everything down, taking care of others, and there wasn't a lot of mutuality, there was sometimes not even communication. And that often then has me feeling a bit triggered, you know, like, I'm not being respected, I'm being neglected. And why do I have to work so hard, you know, to be able to get someone to meet me in this place. So that was coming up for me too.   And I was also really recognizing my request, if we were to reschedule again. So that is coming from the inner game of authenticity. And if this person wasn't able to, you know, agree to some of my requests, in order to schedule another podcast interview, then it's not the right fit, and nothing personal, it's just, this is a process, it's not going to work for me again, and I don't want to have a repeat performance.   So about an hour later, I actually did hear from this person, and they apologize, my name that they thought they were on, you know, Pacific Standard Time, even though all my communication and our Google calendar invite was on Eastern Standard Time, I brought attention to what I did to coordinate the interview to create efficiency. And then I actually had the brave exchange and I named my parameters and the agreement in order to reschedule this interview, and support this person with their new book. So this was honoring myself, my time, my boundaries. And by doing that I can be much more compassionate and forgiving with this person's process.   Carley Hauck 29:15   So that is the way that when we cultivate these six inner game qualities of self awareness, emotional intelligence, resilience, well being love and authenticity, it supports us to have the brave exchange to navigate our triggers more easily because we've developed the skills to relate even in the midst of conflict, even in the midst of trigger. So I told you that I was going to give you a process to try and here it is: are you ready?   This is the first step because we have to understand that we're triggered before we can actually relate skillfully to triggers. This is coming from chapter two in my book, and I'd love for you to just bring your attention inward.   Just bring your awareness to your body to your breath. Kind of digesting everything I've shared, but letting it all go. Maybe move your fingers, your toes, your neck, shoulder circles back, whenever it feels good to just come into the body. This is only going to take a few minutes. So don't do this while you're driving. If you're walking, see if you can, you know, just pause to be still. And now just recall a time that happened recently where you felt triggered at work at home. And bring to mind the situation and go through this process with me.   On a scale of one to 10, see if you can identify the number of trigger one being I feel calm. 10 being I am about to lose it. Can you recall? What was your number? Next, identify your emotions, there might be many: fear, anger, patience, disappointment. All feelings are welcome. Now turn towards your body. What bodily sensations are you aware of is there a tightness constriction, an irritation. And just notice where it's taking up space in your body, your hands, your belly, your head, is it a lot of space is in a little bit of space. And trying to stay in the body, don't go into story.   And next, try to identify what the narrative is about this situation this person did or said or this happened. And we can have lots of narratives and they can either bring us up or they can bring us down. And if you recall, the experience that I shared, I was able to stay in curiosity. I wondered what happened. But I welcome you to really acknowledge whatever narrative is true. Well, what is your narrative about the situation right now.   And notice that you probably have a need from this person from this situation. What need do you have right now that would support you to come into greater balance, maybe you have a need for a break. First, maybe you have a need for connection for respect for whatever it is love for you to just acknowledge what that need is, honor it.   And then bring your awareness back to your body back to your breath. Maybe do a little movement, a little shaking. So that process can take a couple minutes. And it's really helpful for you to go through so that you can start to understand your patterns and be able to have choice over your response in the moment that you're triggered.   Carley Hauck 34:45   And I wanted to share just another piece that when you're first identifying the number on a scale of one to 10. If you're at a five or higher, I would invite you to really pause at that moment. This is not the time to have the conversation. Because in that range of trigger, you've usually left your heart and you're pretty much in your head, which means you're in a more fear based place. If you're in your heart, you're still coming from love, you might still be coming from care, compassion, forgiveness, you're able to really hold space for your experience and the other. But when we're too triggered, we're in attack mode, because that's how our nervous system is wired, we are going to be in fight flight, or freeze versus the, you know, more relaxed care and befriend space.   And so you're human, it's okay, if you're above a five, go take good care of yourself, do what you need to do to shake it off, and then identify what your need is. And so one of the ways that we can communicate that we're triggered, so that we're actually able to salvage and have care for the other, especially if this is in the midst of another person, is we just acknowledge it, I feel triggered, or I'm not in a good place to talk right now.   The other thing that can happen is that we're in dialogue or relationship with someone else who's triggered, and they may not actually even be able to say that they're triggered. So that's also a really wonderful time. If you're aware that this person's triggered, and they're coming from fight flight, or freeze, which means they're withdrawn, they're attacking, or they're just kind of frozen, that you might also interject and say, What do you think about us taking a pause, taking a break, and revisiting this in 15 minutes, or Let's reschedule to another day, right. And you don't necessarily have to say, Hey, I think you're triggered, because that could create more of a trigger for the other person, but you just offer a pause. And if that person isn't able to hear it, you can still take it, because that's you honoring you, and that's you holding healthy boundaries.   So I hope that all this information was helpful to you. And you can grow your inner game, so that you can be a conscious leader at work life in the world. And that inner game will support you to navigate triggers more skillfully. And there are a couple ways for you to cultivate a strong inner game, and to also continue these types of practices.   One is the podcast. I believe this is Episode 48. So all of the podcasts interviews that I have done, I'm sharing practices, I've interviewed leaders, and they're talking about the challenges they've had and what they've utilized to really grow their inner game and navigate their own complexities at work and at home because we bring our whole selves wherever we go, you know, it's not compartmentalised. As I was sharing earlier, our childhood experiences impact, what triggers us at work, and at home.   You can also get my book in hardcopy or an audiobook is available. And I would love to support you with the wonderful stories of leaders in the book and incredible science and the practices that you can apply to your life.   You could also book a free consultation with me and we can develop a specific training for your organization, team, or leadership. I also love creating large scale learning and leadership development programs with these foundational skills embedded. And the links for the book. And booking time with me will all be in the show notes.   Carley Hauck 39:20   Before I say farewell for now, I'd like to invite one more invitation. It's so important that we start to understand the patterns of what triggers us. And so as you go about your day, you might start to explore what are the patterns of things that are causing me to feel triggered at home, at work?   Here are some examples at work. Do I get triggered in group meetings? If so, why? And my one-on-ones with my supervisor. Do I get triggered when they do or say certain things? Why is this potentially related to old experiences in my childhood or my family of origin are another experience that reminds me of this? Do I feel triggered when I am ignored, or when I feel a lack of belonging or trust? Where's that coming from? So, just really being curious.   There's no judgment here, because we all have it. But if we can start to understand the root of it, and we bring caring, and loving awareness, we can start to shift our response and create new healthy patterns on the inside, and less on how we show up on the outside.   Before we part, I am going to share my heart's desire. This feels a bit vulnerable. And I've never used the platform for this purpose, but it feels timely, and we live in a virtual connected world. I am in a wonderful place in my life, where I am seeking a conscious inclusive human being who has a deep commitment to learning growth and using relationship as spiritual practice. This person, like me, has devoted time and energy for many years with teachers, programs, healers, therapists, coaches, to develop and cultivate the inner game skills I've been speaking of: self awareness, emotional intelligence, empathy, growth mindset, leading from love, forgiveness, authenticity. And they are excited and ready to engage in skillful relating and navigating conflict with health, and patients, and responsiveness.   And as I had shared earlier, how I came to develop this practice for myself on navigating triggers was due to the ending of a relationship. But throughout my entire existence of this life, I have yet to find a person that can stay. That has the skills for this type of relating. And I'm at a place where I will not date anyone that does not have the skills, I do not want to go through the pain that has occurred by not being met in these basic capabilities of relating, they feel basic to me. I'm aware, they're not for everyone.   So if you are listening to this, you feel a sense of resonance with me with this image of relating. And you're excited to explore beautiful partnership, and supporting one another to be the best versions of ourselves in service of a more just inclusive and regenerative world, I would love to hear from you. Please reach out. conversations are always a great way to start. And I'm always in the mindset that we are always learning and growing from each other. And I'm always willing to see how we can support each other even if it's not, you know, moving towards what I'm calling in this particular message.   If you are also listening to us and you know, an eligible, single cisgendered heterosexual male who fits this description, and you would like to reach out and introduce us, I would be delighted to hear from you. It's all about introductions and supporting one another, to grow into our best selves with the right community opportunities. So thank you for hearing my heart's desire. And as always, I so appreciate you being part of the podcast community for listening in. And until we meet again, be the light and shine your light.

(Townsend Associates)  Dick joined Townsend to head up their transmitter design and production engineering.  Townsend was acquired by Ampex Corporation which expanded their presence in the Broadcast Industry.  When Ampex suffered some financial setbacks related to their music recording business.  The Broadcast transmitter division was shuttered to improve their bottom line.  In 1972 Dick was part of a group from the closing Ampex transmitter operation that started Spectrum Cable, a company that was seeking cable system franchises in the Western Massachusetts area.  Spectrum was awarded franchises in 3 communities in the suburbs of Springfield, MA.  At that time Cable television was, essentially, a reception service which made operation in city TV markets like Springfield challenging.  Spectrum's offering to that market was superior reception in addition to 2 channels from the Boston, MA market that provided coverage of major hockey and basketball teams.  Spectrum employed a unique network of cylindrical steel towers, with headend electronics at the top and distant signals shared by microwave.  Shortly after Spectrum began operation Home Box Office was added via regional microwave.   Spectrum was acquired by Colony Communications in 1975.  Spectrum's cable systems were combined with 4 cable franchises in the same region operated by Colony.  Dick was hired to head up engineering for that group of cable franchises.  Over time, Dick's responsibilities expanded to head of engineering for all of Colony's cable and MDS microwave systems.  Cable system technology was advancing rapidly during that period.  Channels, received from satellites became common.  Dick worked with the Colony engineering team to install the 2nd 10-meter dia. earth station in the Northeast.  Expansion of cable service channels, from satellite, sparked a rapid growth in public interest in cable TV service.  Colony aggressively supported that expansion of service offerings on their cable systems.  Dick also supported the franchise acquisition team seeking additional cable television communities for Colony.  Dick left Colony at the end of 1981, joining Greater Media Cable at the start of 1982 as Vice President of Engineering.  Greater Media had a strong presence in New England which was expanded through franchising and acquisitions.  That expansion also included one-fourth of the City of Philadelphia and a complex of systems located in the suburbs of Detroit, MI.  Cable television technology was advancing rapidly during that period as operators continued to improve their service offerings and reliability.   During his employment with Greater Media, that operator became a founding member of CableLabs, deployed a 60 channel AML microwave system for the large Worcester complex of towns, began offering DOCSIS data over cable service, began using fiber optic cable for video distribution, and expanded their local video origination service to a full-time live news service.  Dick was active on SCTE, CableLabs, and NCTA Industry committees for Greater Media.  The Greater Media cable operations were sold in 1999.  In 2000 Dick joined RCN, a system operator that competed in the Cable space by building their own facilities in parallel with the incumbent cable television provider, as Director of Video technology.  RCN deployed Video on Demand technology and developed a unique set-top box technology designed to give RCN a competitive advantage in the Chicago cable market.   Dick joined Comcast Cable as a Director in 2005.  Initially, he was part of the team creating a specification for a set-top box design unique to Comcast.  His work continued as part of a small engineering team testing and certifying set-top boxes for deployment to subscribers by Comcast.  His duties also expanded to supporting Comcast's work to improve the energy efficiency of Comcast devices in subscriber's homes.  This included active participation in the DOE's Energy Star program and Cable industry initiatives to address government energy efficiency requirements.  Mr. Kirsche left Comcast in 2010 and opened Kirsche Consulting LLC.  Kirsche Consulting supported Cable Operators' set-top and energy efficiency reporting efforts.  That work included considerable recordkeeping and analysis work for Comcast which led to significant energy savings for Comcast subscribers.Dick officially retired in 2018 but continues to support SCTE standards work as a volunteer.   Christopher J Lammers, COO Emeritus and Senior Executive Advisor, CableLabs® Chris is currently coo emeritus and senior executive advisor for CableLabs leading special projects and initiatives, including the integration of SCTE as a key part of CableLabs, together with supporting relationships across industry associations including ACA Connects, The Cable Center, CCSA, the Emma Bowen Foundation, NCTA, NCTC and WICT. Prior to this, Chris served as senior vice president and chief operating officer at CableLabs directing accounting and finance, IT, facilities and membership development. He remains committed to relationships with mid-sized and smaller MSOs, as well as with international cable operators in Asia, Europe and Latin America, key communities he built at CableLabs. Chris currently serves as a member of the board of directors of The Cable Center and the Emma Bowen Foundation and is actively involved in committees and/or support for several national and international industry trade associations.  He is a member of the Cable TV Pioneers (Class of 2021). Prior to joining CableLabs in 1997, Chris was president and CEO of Western Communications, a mid-sized multiple system operator with cable systems located in the Western United States. Before that, Chris was a partner with the San Francisco law firm of Cooper, White & Cooper. Chris received a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Chicago School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts degree with distinction from Stanford University.AcknowledgmentsA special thank you to Benjamin Monlezun for the use of his original song, Downpoor.The views expressed in this episode are solely those of the podcast host and guests and do not necessarily represent the position, strategy, or opinions of CableLabs.

66: How to Avoid Tax Penalties and Seek the Best Tax Advice

In September, there were still about 17.6M tax returns awaiting processing. Not to mention, the IRS anticipates receiving over 4M more returns in October. The delay has resulted in a lot of frustrated taxpayers, especially those grappling with error notices and being charged penalties and interest for alleged mistakes. Those penalties add up. For the fiscal year 2020, the IRS assessed nearly 31.4B in civil penalties. But are those penalties fair? Are there claims or defenses that can get taxpayers out of those penalties? There's a lot that can go wrong while filing a tax return because the tax code is so huge and increasingly complicated. How can taxpayers seek accessible tax advice, and even defend tax penalty notices if necessary? On today's episode of the Taxgirl podcast, Kelly is joined by Andrew Gradman to chat about the general scope of tax penalties and what taxpayers can do about them, both proactively and retroactively. Andrew is a tax lawyer in Los Angeles specialising in transactional matters. He's the principal at the Law Office of Andrew L. Gradman. He received his BA from Stanford University, his JD from Columbia University, and his Tax LLM and Business Certificate from NYU. He is admitted to the bar in California and Nevada.  Listen to Kelly and Andrew talk about tax penalties: One of the tax penalties that taxpayers are likely most familiar with is IRC 6662, which is an accuracy related penalty. Andrew explains what the details mean and why it exists in the first place. He says, “Penalties are the heart of the tax law.” There's no intent required to be faced with a tax penalty like IRC 6662, which are sometimes referred to as “strict liability penalties.” Why is that rule in place, and how can taxpayers stay on top of these standards? It all comes down to reasonable cause and good faith. Whereas the big problems are negligence and disregard of rules and regulations.  How does negligence apply to taxes? What counts as negligent tax behavior? What are some examples of tax negligence? Andrew explains in plain English that in general, negligence is “a failure to make a reasonable attempt to meet the Internal Revenue laws.” It can also include failure to keep adequate books and records.  If a taxpayer receives a notice for a tax penalty, what can be done about it? If an individual feels the notice isn't “fair,” what options are available to them? Many penalties can be defeated by “reasonable cause” and “good faith,” though there are still some strict liability penalties that are more difficult to combat.  Since the FAQ section of the IRS website is notoriously not to be taken as a binding authority, how can taxpayers reasonably inform and arm themselves against tax penalties?  How can taxpayers prove reasonable cause and good faith in defense of tax penalties? What resources are available during the process? What does “substantial authority” mean in tax law? When there is a mistake when filing, who's responsible? Is it the individual, is it the preparer? What happens next? Andrew says it depends on contracts, courtesy, and (unfortunately sometimes) malpractice.  Sometimes clients don't know that relevant and important information is, in fact, relevant and important when it comes to their tax return, which can lead to an error or penalty down the road. Plus, bad tax advice has never been more abundant than it is now in the age of TikTok and viral media. What is Andrew's advice for finding good and accessible tax advice? When people have access to a tax professional, how candid can they be? What information is necessary to disclose, including bad information or advice they may have heard?  It can feel overwhelming to receive a tax penalty notice. Staying informed and having tax professionals in your corner will give you the tools and empowerment to take a breath and solve the problem.  More about Kelly: Kelly is the creator and host of the Taxgirl...

Why is a sense of humor and humanity so important that you should bring both to work and keep them in your life? In fact, a sense of playfulness can be your superpower. It certainly was for this week's guest: Kathy Klotz-Guest.  In today's episode, Kathy shares her story as a woman in technology who excelled in Silicon Valley by being funny and smart. We delved into the #1 fear most of us share: the fear of judgment especially by others (particularly from our coworkers). Kathy also shares how you can avoid living a fragmented life at work and instead bring more of your personality to the table as an asset. We talk about what you may need to feel psychologically safe enough to let your guard down a bit and show your humanity.  Kathy shares where the magic is as well as other lessons she has learned from her ‘improv' experiences, including a concept called the “yes, and.” Hopefully, after listening to this episode, you'll be inspired to add more humor and a spirit of playfulness into your life.  I also want to invite you to grab your free copy of my Courage Makerspace Playbook. In this playbook, you'll have an opportunity to grow and test your own courage muscles. See where they are today and where they can use some strengthening so that you can get more out of your life. Pick any one of my 7 specific exercises centered on boosting your courage so you get to a point where you rise up and you and you can finally be your real, authentic, and playful self. You see, approaching your life purpose or going after your dreams is a lot easier if you are intentionally playful along the way; and in my playbook, I give you my process.  Simply go to www.melissallarena.com/courage. Once you receive your playbook, turn to page 29 for an exercise that will help you intentionally add playful experiences into your life. You will also notice how intentionally planning for playful experiences each month will get you to a space where you'll be making your responsibilities work around those playful and memorable experiences and not the other way around. Grab your Courage Makerspace right now if you want to rather approach your life purpose and mission laughing, than being burnt out.  About Kathy Klotz-Guest Kathy Klotz-Guest is a speaker, author, comedian, and former tech exec who uses tools of improvisation and humor to help leaders, teams - even companies - be more human and communicate like humans. By helping people bring more of their humorous selves to work, we can lead positive change and create safe spaces for bold, "unsafe" ideas that matter. The founder of Keeping it Human, Kathy trained at ComedySportz and at LA's Second City, and she and her work have been featured in Forbes and The Huffington Post.  Inc.com named her book, “Stop Boring Me!” a must-read for leaders. It was one of the top 10 humor and communication books on Amazon in 2018.  Kathy has graduate degrees from Stanford University and UC Berkeley, and performs stand-up comedy and improv as well as teaches it in theater and business settings. Her 12 yr old still thinks she's funny, though she knows that the window is closing very soon. She is working on her 3rd book and just launched an improv and business course on LinkedIn Learning called 'Leading in the Moment.' Share this episode with a people leader whom you know is secretly a funny person who might just need a nudge to share their gift with others! Encourage them to use their superpower by sharing this conversation with them.  Highlights Curiosity: Consider the idea of saying “yes, and” in your life so that you can follow your hunches and stay the course with whatever might be necessary for you to do during your day-job Creativity: Create or find your own safe space. Watch how creative you can be when you feel psychologically safe. Courage: Honor yourself and your ideas and show up for others. It's time to stop living a fragmented life and start becoming more of yourself. Embrace who you are and that's where the magic is! Leadership: Leaders worth following have a sense of humor and humility. If you take yourself so seriously, you can't laugh at your mistakes and embrace your own humanity.  Humanity: We all have inside of us this capacity for lightheartedness and joy. If we don't want that as part of who we are, then we're not connecting with all of who we are. Fear: The number one fear is people are afraid of being judged by their co-workers, we're afraid of judgment. Perspective: Be honest about the reality that some people will not like who you are. Show up more and the world around you will start to change. Authenticity: If you can be more you during the hiring process, the right employer, the right culture, the right team, and their propensity to accept the real you will reveal itself. Humor: People feel more comfortable with humor when it's organic and when there's psychological safety. Culture: When the people in an organization aren't laughing, it could mean that fear is high and psychological safety is low. And so, look at the net you put under people. Self-aware leaders who are progressive are open to the challenge, and psychological safety starts with them. Adapt: We were born improvisers. Every day, everybody in life and in business has to adapt. They have to pivot and the greatest pivot involves COVID. Playfulness: Play is not the opposite of serious. It's the opposite of depression. Reclaim playfulness starting with doing the little things and whatever works for you. Whatever feeds your soul is valid play. There's no one way to play. Play in the workplace: There's no wrong way to do it. Play a little bit in every meeting. Meetings don't have to be boring!  Safety: As leaders, make it a safe place for people to speak of how they feel, and that kind of safety opens people up. Play is both a top-down and bottoms-up approach. It doesn't excuse leaders from doing their share to create psychological safety.  Joy space: Make sure you do something that brings you joy every day. Whether that's teaching or listening to music, whatever that looks like, create these places where you find joy and feel safe. Self-talk: We all have the universal fear of failure, fear of embarrassment, fear of being wrong, and the fear of being judged. And you've got to rewire the self-talk. The inner critic: Whenever you're criticizing somebody else's creation, you are feeding your inner critic such that when you go to do something creative, it will turn on you because you fed it with other people. So practice grace with other people.

In the era of big tech, groundbreaking technological innovation has given rise to an increasingly efficient and methodical society. But these advances are not without consequence, as unbounded technological growth demands control over how we work, think, consume and communicate. Our panelists say too many have accepted biased algorithms, job-displacing robots, and surveillance-based capitalism as an inexorable cost of innovation, giving a powerful few the reins over our evolving society. Technologists, the venture capitalists who fund them, and the politicians who allow for this unregulated growth have stepped into the seat of power, often prioritizing technological optimization and efficiency over fundamental human values. System Error, authored by three Stanford professors, offers an alternative to this dystopian vision of a world controlled by big tech. Armed with the combined knowledge of philosopher Rob Reich, a leading thinker at the intersection of technology and ethics, political scientist and former Obama staffer Jeremy Weinstein, as well as the director of Stanford's undergraduate computer science program Mehran Sahami, System Error reveals how big tech can be held to account for the power it wields over our society. Join us as professors Reich, Weinstein and Sahami uncover the gripping reality of big tech and explain how we can chart a new path forward to control technology before it controls us. About the Speakers Rob Reich is the director of Stanford University's Center for Ethics in Society; co-director of the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, and associate director of its new Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence; and co-author of System Error:Where Big Tech Went Wrong and How We Can Reboot.

In May of 2008, a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Sichuan, China in the middle of the afternoon. Entire towns were destroyed, schools collapsed, and over 80,000 people died — many of them schoolchildren. When grief-stricken families were denied information about exactly who and how many children died, Chinese artist Ai Weiwei initiated a critical and controversial response by compiling their names and expressing a region's collective grief through art. Enter Ian Boyden, who first encountered the thousands of names while curating Ai's 2016 exhibition, Ai Weiwei: Fault Line, at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art. Over the course of a year, Boyden read and translated the poetic essence of the children's names and composed heartbreaking, elegiac verses in response. The resulting work, A Forest of Names, meditates on humanity, memory, and language. In our 109th episode of In the Moment, Shin Yu Pai and Boyden explore his haunting and healing tribute of the thousands of lives lost. Ian Boyden is a visual artist, translator, writer, and curator whose work holds a deep awareness of East Asian aesthetics. He studied for several years in China and Japan and holds degrees in Art History from Wesleyan University and Yale University. His art and published work are found in many public collections including Reed College, Stanford University, the Portland Art Museum, and the Victoria & Albert Museum. His work is interdisciplinary, and past collaborations have involved scientists, poets, composers, and visual artists. Shin Yu Pai is Program Director for Town Hall. She is the author of eleven books of poetry. Her work has appeared in publications throughout the U.S., Japan, China, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and Canada.

A thousand years ago, most people didn't own a single book. The only way to access knowledge was to consult their memory.  But technology – from paper to hard drives – has permitted us to free our brains from remembering countless facts. Alphabetization and the simple filing cabinet have helped to systematize and save information we might need someday. But now that we can Google just about any subject, have we lost the ability to memorize information? Does this make our brains better or worse?

That's where their work culminates. https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/shapingopinion/Guide_Dogs_auphonic.mp3 Close your eyes. Imagine not being able to see. Then imagine trying to go about your daily routine this way. Even if you have trouble imagining it, you already get a sense of just how tough life can be if you're blind. There are many ways people with blindness work to overcome daily challenges to live normal, productive and successful lives. Today, we're going to talk about one of the more fascinating programs that exists in this way. It's called Guide Dogs for the Blind.  It's based on the belief that everyone deserves to move through the world safely and confidently—to live the life they want to live. While the work of Guide Dogs for the Blind is comprehensive, it all comes down to someone with a need, and the work involved to meet that need. That process starts with finding those special dogs, and then training them, which is a miracle in itself, and then of course, training the dog's partner so that the two are a perfect match. Guide Dogs for the Blind is the largest guide dog school in North America. More than 16,000 guide dog teams have graduated from the school since the organization's founding in 1942. Believe it or not, the organization does not charge its clients. The personalized training and support is provided thanks to the organization's donors and volunteers. Chris Benninger has been the organization's president and CEO since 2014.

Under her leadership, the organization was also able to raise $25.5 million to build The Animal Community Center -- the first facility of its kind in the country. Under Chris' leadership, Guide Dogs for the Blind has expanded its program offerings to include Orientation and Mobility training for individuals with insufficient skills to qualify for guide dog training, a companion dog program for visually-impaired children and advocacy in support of GDB's visually-impaired communities. In addition, annual fundraising has tripled since 2014 and a new state-of-the-art Puppy Center has been built. Current organization-wide initiatives include Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as well as full accessibility throughout GDB and its communication channels.

My guest today is Chris Yeh, entrepreneur, investor, writer, and mentor with two Bachelor’s degrees with distinction from Stanford University and an MBA from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar. Chris co-authored the New York Times best-seller The Alliance as well as the book Blitzscaling with Reid Hoffman (co-founder of LinkedIn). Chris wrote Blitzscaling with Reid to explain how some of the largest companies in the world like Amazon, AirBNB, and Uber use a very specific set of offensive, competitive strategies that prioritize speed to achieve massive scale at incredible speed. In this episode, Chris is going to demystify what some of the world's most valuable companies did in order to reach their highest highs and then break down his concept of blitzscaling. He’ll even go over the principles and methodologies in his book and how they apply to any idea or business. We’ll break down the different principles and methodologies in the book and how they can apply to any idea or business. What You Will Learn How to compete and grow faster than the competition in a winner-take-all market The three key principles of blitzscaling and how they work Business model innovation Strategy innovation Management innovation How the world's most valuable companies use a framework for growth called blitzscaling The five stages of growth a blitzscaling company will go through Why tying your ego in with the company is extremely dangerous Ways to evolve that all-important culture as your company grows How the blitzscaling growth model has changed the world and created the most valuable companies What the network effect is and how it fits into a company’s flywheel Why you must define “what is better” compared to “what currently exists” How to intelligently calculate risks — and why risks are beneficial in innovation Why it’s “better to be a pirate than join the navy” and what that means Current thoughts on raising money and the truth about valuations Bio: Chris Yeh is a writer, investor, and entrepreneur who has had a ringside seat in the world of startups and scaleups since 1995. He has authored such books as The Alliance and Blitzscaling (co-authored with Reid Hoffman of LinkedIn), the book that explains how to build world-changing companies like Amazon, Alibaba, and Airbnb in record time. His books help founders, venture capitalists, corporate leaders, policymakers, and everyday people better understand how the internet has changed the way we work together to build amazing organizations. Quotes: 13:20 - “It really is the case that these feedback loops are getting stronger and stronger. [...] The feedback loop of talent and capital. We’ve seen this happen. Companies that breakout to an early lead find it much easier to attract great talent and the follow-on capital and that’s because people love a winner.” - Chris Yeh 13:53 - “Think of the number of millionaires that have been minted by the Facebooks and the Googles and the AirBnBs of the world.” - Chris Yeh 14:40 - “There’s a little bit of a controversy there because the term Blitzscaling is explicitly modeled on the term Blitzkrieg, which you may remember from your history lessons of WWII. It’s the concept of a lightning war, where your forces go out ahead of their supply line, and is moving faster than anyone is possibly anticipating. It’s a high risk, high reward s
