Taren Gesell: Total Health, Mottiv Method & Beyond Triathlon Taren

On episode 62 I speak to Taren Gesell, known my many as ‘Triathlon Taren'. We dive into his recent transition from a triathlon coach to more of a holistic health coach, changing his platform to Mottiv and moving out to Vancouver Island. After years of building this brand, a seriously impressive YouTube channel and plenty of research, Taren has live the ups and downs and is now sharing a unique view on endurance sport with an emphasis on ‘total health'. We speak about life transitions, learning to listen and follow your heart to be in alignment with ourselves, and of course triathlon. Taren shares some insights on nutrition, training and why kettlebells are the best. I've learned a ton from Taren via his podcast and YouTube channel, so it was slightly surreal to actually get to speak with him, and I really enjoyed it. This episode is support by Open — a mindfulness studio offering experiences that combine breathwork, meditation, yoga, Pilates, and more to support transformation and personal development.

However if physical therapists give their clients 4 exercises, not only will they do them, but they are much more likely to do them multiple times a day. This sparked an idea in me to prepare classes that were only 4 poses in length and see what they did not only in my motivation to prepare them as a teacher (it went through the roof by the way) and also your motivation to practice them as my students.

To get your free GSR template (for a Project Manager) go to http://www.btacademy.com/ce/download/gsr-template/ So if you listen to this show with any regularity, it's pretty safe to say the organism that is your business is evolving.  And while that's an exciting feeling, it also brings about a feeling of uncertainty you're probably familiar with…. Are my people doing what I hired them to do?  Are they an ROI-generating asset for my business?  Or are they just an expense?  Are they executing at the level that I was back when I was doing their job (and a million others)? Or are they a costly piece of dead weight?  I realize that might sound a little cynical.  Or like we're assuming the worst.  But I'm sure most of you have had this thought cross your mind at least once or twice. When your business was small and simple.  This question was pretty easy to answer.  If you hired a laborer to work alongside you, you could see with your own two eyes that they're completely effing the D.  There's the door.  Bye!   But as your company evolves, roles become more complex and nuanced, layers get added to the organizational chart, truly knowing how people are performing becomes less clear.   So the question becomes…. How do we, as leaders, manage at scale?  How do we make sure our individual team members are executing on their individual goals, so that we as a company hit ours? To answer this question we brought Dave Stephens on the show.  Dave's company, Lida Homes is an 8 figure custom home builder and high end renovation contractor.  He runs a tight ship of 24, and specifically in this show we're going to learn how he uses one on one Goal Setting and Review meetings (or GSR for short) to lead his 5 project managers to create award winning homes and customer experience.   Over the last 3 years, he's won the Canadian Home Builders Association's builder of the year award, and over the last two has received the highest level customer satisfaction award in his Vancouver Island region.  Dave directly attributes this success and recognition to the way he leads his team through GSR.   His people do their jobs. Extremely well. In today's Episode: What a GSR is and why it is important to both quality and growth in your business How to use a point system in your GSRs to create black and white accountability What a contracting business looks like before implementing GSRs vs after implementing GSRs How you can expect your team (especially your PM's) to respond when you introduce GSRs What a great GSR with a project manager specifically looks like How to have a hard conversation with an employee who is underperforming See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

“A colossal battle to save the last temperate rainforest on Vancouver Island, Canada, is under way, as police and forest protectors are engaged in a cat-and-mouse chase through hundreds of kilometres of thick woods,” Brandi Morin wrote earlier this summer for Al Jazeera English. Since then, the battle in British Columbia has only gotten more intense as Indigenous land protectors and non-Indigenous activists put their bodies on the line to defend the ancient rainforest in the Fairy Creek and Central Walbran areas, facing arrest and forced removal by Canadian police.In this segment of The Marc Steiner Show, Marc speaks with Morin about what she's seen on the ground covering this crucial struggle to preserve unceded First Nations land from the onslaught of settler-colonial violence and the environmentally destructive logging industry. Brandi Morin is an award-winning French/Cree/Iroquois journalist from Treaty 6 territory in Alberta, Canada. Her work has appeared in numerous outlets, including Al Jazeera English, The Guardian, The National Observer, The New York Times, Vice Canada, and CBC Indigenous.Tune in for new episodes of The Marc Steiner Show every Tuesday and Friday on TRNN.Pre-Production/Studio/Post Production: Stephen FrankHelp us continue producing The Marc Steiner Show by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer:Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-pod-mssSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/nl-pod-stGet The Marc Steiner Show updates: https://therealnews.com/up-pod-stLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews

Fossil Huntress — Palaeo Sommelier

The islands have gone by many names. To the people who call the islands home, Haida Gwaii means “island of the people,” it is a shortened version of an earlier name, Haadala Gwaii-ai, or “taken out of concealment.” Back at the time of Nangkilslas, it was called Didakwaa Gwaii, or “shoreward country.” By any name, the islands are a place of beauty and spirit and enjoy a special place in both the natural and supernatural world. Haida oral history traces the lineage of their families back to the ocean's origins. Spear points from Huxley Island confirm a date of between 12,500 - 13,500 years ago. Their stories bear witness to the last ice age, great floods, changes in sea levels and the arrival of the first tree – each binding them closer to the land and sea and enriching our understanding of this special place. The islands form part of Wrangellia, an exotic terrane that includes parts of western British Columbia, Vancouver Island and Alaska. Today, the mist-shrouded archipelago of Haida Gwaii is separated from the British Columbia mainland by Hecate Strait, a 40-mile wide channel of tempestuous water. Haida oral tradition tells of a time when the strait was mostly dry, dotted here and there with lakes. And indeed, during the last ice age, glaciers locked up so much water that the sea level was hundreds of feet lower than it is today. Soil samples from the seafloor of Hecate Strait contain wood, pollen, and other terrestrial plant materials that tell of a tundra-like environment. Whether or not the strait was ever completely dry during these times, it seems that it did at least contain a series of stepping-stone islands and bridges that remained free of ice.
