One of the most popular characters in Charles M. Schultz's Peanuts comic strip is Linus Van Pelt, Charlie Brown's best friend. Linus displays great wisdom even as he clings to his always-present blue security blanket. Dr. Victoria Grady, an organization expert with decades of experience working with Fortune 500 companies, sees similarities between Linus and the type of “attachment behavior” that often stalls the progress of companies trying to successfully transform in the digital age. Do you or your colleagues have a mental “blankie” that is holding you back? Dr. Grady, co-author of Stuck: How to Win at Work By Understanding Loss, joins host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart to explain how to identify your attachment behaviors and offers insights on how to get people to “un-stick” and embrace and adopt change.

Around 40% of New Zealanders are neurodivergent in different ways. Some are on the Autism Spectrum, others have ADHD (inattentive or hyperactive; combined type), dyslexia, etc. Despite this wide diversity of individuals, a lot of individuals are not reflected within the Workplace. The brain badge was assembled as a means to work with businesses to facilitate the differences that neurodiverse individuals have in a neurotypically wired world. Trishil spoke to Brain Badge advisor Rich Rowley on the matter, hearing about his personal story along the way

So many conversations these days about what it takes to find and keep devoted employees are missing a key ingredient. I'll tell you what it is and why it matters. Plus, I'll tell you why we need to stop saying there's a staffing shortage. That's what's happening now, on Boss Better Now.
After holding the GeekWire Awards virtually for the past two years, there was a feeling of real catharsis Thursday evening as hundreds of people streamed through the doors of the Showbox Sodo in Seattle for our annual celebration of the Pacific Northwest's top tech startups, leaders, and innovations. For the finalists in the 2022 GeekWire Awards, recognition at the superhero-themed show came with the added bonus of knowing that their companies made it through a period of unprecedented challenge and change. But the week also brought a new sense of uncertainty about what's to come. [Related Post:2022 GeekWire Awards revealed: Community celebrates big winners in Pacific NW tech] Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi's widely cited memo on Monday was a flashpoint for the tech industry, adding to existing concerns by warning of a “seismic shift” in the markets, signaling tougher times and tighter belts ahead. Some of the startup CEOs in attendance acknowledged reading his message closely. So we took our cues from the backdrop, literally and figuratively — inviting tech leaders aside at the event to ask questions such as: What's your take on the possibility of new economic realities? What are your biggest challenges and priorities for the rest of the year? And, of course: which superhero best reflects your company's ethos? The result was a glimpse into the collective psyche of the tech community in a key U.S. innovation hub, at a pivotal moment for the country and the world. Guests on this episode, in order of appearance: Xiao Wang, CEO of Boundless Immigration, finalist for CEO of the Year. Maria Karaivanova, co-founder & COO of WhyLabs.

In today's competitive hiring environment, organizations must rethink their approach to both recruiting and retention. In this episode, Paylocity CEO Steve Beauchamp joins host Shari Simpson to talk about the impact executives plan in building a welcoming, people-driven employee experience. Employee commitment rises when executive leaders are actively involved in building workplace community, taking the time to engage in social collaboration tools, recognize their employees' accomplishments, and encourage professional growth. And in turn, increased employee engagement and loyalty position those leaders and their organizations for long-term success. Guest: Steve Beauchamp, Co-CEO, Paylocity Guest Bio: A company is only as good as its people. And when I joined the company as CEO in 2007, I was excited by what I saw. I saw a company filled with incredibly talented people, all of whom were energized and ready to join me in taking Paylocity to the next level. I'm fortunate enough to be surrounded by the best people in the business — from our leadership team to our software engineers, sales team and all of our team members helping our clients every day. And they've all been with me every step of the way. Together, we scaled the company nationally and went public in 2014. We relocated our national headquarters to a new office in Schaumburg, IL. We've done a lot of great things together. But the thing that makes me most proud is looking at the strong internal culture we've built. Because not only do our employees deserve it, our clients do as well. It all stems from my belief that a great culture is the key to delivering an exceptional client experience. And when you look at Paylocity, that's what we do best. We partner with our clients to help them with whatever they need today so we can move forward together toward a tomorrow that is full of opportunity.

Conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion seem to be a more frequent and familiar part of both our business and general culture. But how are actual changes and improvements in individual and group behavior going to be made? My special guest, Christina Blacken has made a career for herself of looking at this very important question and chose a tool to do her work that is called Narrative Intelligence. In the episode, Christina teaches us all about Narrative Intelligence, her own childhood and childhood surroundings which sharpened her knowledge for story, and how stories influence people's thoughts and behavior. You will gain insight on how Christina expertly trains other people to be more aware of the stories that have influenced them, the cultures and policies they operate in, and to be more conscious about how they use their own personal influence.Christina Blacken is a public speaker, performer, and founder of The New Quo. The New Quo is a leadership development and equity consultancy, helping leaders create equitable practices, habits, and goals through their narrative intelligence. She helps leaders identify the psychological impact of historical, cultural, and personal narratives on beliefs, bias, and behaviors to improve their bias recognition, as well as providing them with leadership tools to create more inclusive and equitable communication, goal setting, decision making, and relationship building skills. Timestamps:• [6:50] “So many of the things I've created in my life have always started from a pain point or a block or a barrier…”• [8:32] Christina shares how and why she discovered that story was a big part of how people were ingesting different cultures and identities that they maybe never interacted with before.• [11:12] Christina shares an example of “wholesale buying” of stories that influence and impact… “When there's discussions around beauty and professionalism, that straight hair is the norm. And if you don't have straight hair, you're not professional, you're not as attractive. • [16:03] Christina explains narrative intelligence as “the ability to recognize the patterns, and the narrative tropes that are internalized within you when it comes to societal or cultural stories, and how those then affect your behavior, your thinking, your biases, and shifting them appropriately if they're in the way of your full potential because there are stories we can ingest…”For more information on the Make Time for Success podcast, visit: https://www.maketimeforsuccesspodcast.comConnect with Us!Dr. Christine Li -Website: https://www.procrastinationcoach.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/procrastinationcoachInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/procrastinationcoach/To work with Dr. Li on a weekly basis in her coaching and accountability program, please register for The Success Lab here: https://www.procrastinationcoach.com/labChristina Blacken -Website: https://www.thenewquo.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christinablacken/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/christinablackenthe white paper! https://bitly.com/newquopaper

“Healthy workplaces are characterized by strong communication, mutual respect, and attention to work relationships” and “there's no denying that work and workplaces are experiencing a crisis.” (Dr. Marie Gervais, whose newly released book, The Spirit of Work) is “a path to the enhancement of the soul.” Watch this interview on YouTube here https://youtu.be/md088Ynx0ek For returning guests, welcome back, and for those who are new here, I'm Andrea Samadi, author, and educator, with a passion for learning, understanding difficult concepts, and breaking them down so that we can all use and apply the most current research to improve our productivity and results in our schools, sports environments, and modern workplaces. On today's episode #214, we will be speaking with Dr. Marie Gervais[i] the CEO of Shift Management Inc and the author of The Spirit of Work[ii]," where she offers a high-level yet approachable model in rethinking how we view and structure work. Her book delves into the fascinating relationship between people and work, combining ancient wisdom, modern science, spirituality, and real-world examples to share insights into developing a soul-sustaining workplace culture. She also has a podcast herself, The Culture and Leadership Podcast[iii] where she dives deeper into this topic. After releasing three interviews this year on workplace burnout, it's been clear that workplaces around the world are indeed experiencing a crisis, as I've had many messages relating to individuals with their specific workplace struggle and Dr. Gervais highlights this new workplace problem in the beginning of her book when she shares that “statistics about workplace engagement, happiness and satisfaction have shown consistent decline and saw significant change since the event of the coronavirus pandemic.” (The Spirit of Work). If you are a leader, change-maker, or anyone looking to build a humane and sustainable system of work, and can see that something needs to change in today's workplace, this interview is for you. I hope we can all learn some new perspectives to create happier workplaces where productivity and creativity soars by looking at how to build our future managers with skills that are based on what humans need to succeed and develop in our future workplaces. In today's episode we will cover: The interconnections between science, business practices and sacred texts as they relate to work Find practical tools and workplace examples to apply to management as a soul-enhancing journey Rethink common but destructive workplace cultural assumptions To see ourselves as a spiritual being with thoughts and actions that have lasting effects This episode has already made me move from my thinking/intellectual mind, and see what we can learn together when we incorporate our spirit and soul into our daily work. Let's meet Dr. Marie Gervais! Welcome Dr. Gervais! It's wonderful to meet you. Thank you for coming on the podcast all the way from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada which I always consider my home country, because that's where I grew up. Dr. Gervais, congratulations on releasing your new book, The Spirit of Work, that I watched you unbox[iv]. I know how exciting it is to put your heart, soul and mind into something and release it to the world. I related when you said that releasing this book was like pushing a bolder up a hill. How has this journey to release this book been for you? I've got to mention the story behind your episode, because there's always so many twists and turns with creating content. While researching each guest for this podcast, I put a considerable amount of thought into what I wanted to ask, look for ways that what I want to ask is being mirrored in the world so our interview can help others for years to come, and I begin to connect with that person (I'd say on a soul level) in this research process. Something that's never happened to me in all my years of content creation. While preparing for your interview, something unexpected happened and I actually lost the 5-page script I'd written, after I had finished it and sent it to your team. I saved it and then after opening it again, it was just blank. Your team got the blank version. I'll never know what happened, (and it might not be worth the time to look into that) but the file somehow became corrupt, as you saw, and I had to stop, think about it all, and recreate your questions. I know there are always lessons to learn with everything we do and I really do think it happened for a reason to make me think hard about The Spirit of Work that I noticed after creating your questions. When this spirit is present, it drives our work in an entirely different way. INTRO Q: What do you think about this AHA Moment connected to your book and this interview that perhaps I needed to rethink my original questions for you and recreate them from more of a soul level, than mind? Q1: What does the Spirit of Work mean to you and how did a negative experience from your job led you to continuously ask questions about workplace culture leading you to write this book? Q2: We have covered the idea that human beings live simultaneously on three planes (our spiritual/soul side, intellectual/mental side and physical side on many episodes, starting with Dr. Daniel Siegel who talked about “Mindsight[v]” as being “the basis for social and emotional intelligence,” or Dr. John Medina[vi] who mentioned Theory of Mind as a way to connect to others on a deeper level, my mentor Bob Proctor talked about paying attention to our spiritual side all the time in the creative process and Greg Link mentioned that even when we die, our spirit still exists. Why is the mind/body/soul connection important to you and your work? Q3: I do believe that we create what we imagine and that “we build systems around the outcomes of our beliefs to prove the veracity of our beliefs” (Spirit of Work). How can we build workplaces we love where we can be with others in healthy, enjoyable interactions, that build prosperity and solve conflicts easily? Where do we even begin to make the change that you see? Q4- I saw a quote that made sense to me, and I'm sure anyone listening would agree that “true leaders don't create followers” they create more leaders, but often there's no room for new ideas in our corporate world and its rare, if not impossible to go from the bottom of an organization, to the very top, without someone leaving, proving themselves somewhere else, and coming back with a promotion. Taking this leap outside of an organization (to a new one) is a difficult one, but so often it's the ONLY way for someone to push past this block and forge their own path. What's behind this concept where managers or leaders DO NOT create other leaders, but squash them into a corner, so they have to end up quitting, and proving themselves somewhere else? Is this a fearful leader, and what needs to change for this quote to ring true in more organizations? Q5: For someone who was promoted into a position of leadership (maybe someone with a tech background who didn't have to worry about people skills in the past) and they now find they are dealing with people and all their complexity (mind/body/soul). What keys to success would you offer this person to unlock the skills that will accelerate anyone in the workplace? Q6: What are some common mistakes that you see in the workplace that leaders can avoid with your experience? Q7: This type of training was left out of ALL the corporate training I ever went through, but was at the center of the work I did while in the motivational speaking industry. We were always looking at how our past would show up in our present-day life, and identify subconscious blocks that might be holding us back. Bob Proctor called them paradigms, or beliefs that have turned into habits over time, that either work for us, or against us. How can leaders help their team members to identify their subconscious blocks to move them forward and towards their goals? Q8: Your call to “rethink work, informed by new understandings about the greatness we are destined to achieve as a human race” is a noble cause that takes thought from all of us. Maybe it was why I lost my original questions, so I had to THINK about them again, and ask them in a way that they came from my heart (from my emotional side after crying a bit) but it made me think about how I bring my “soul” to each interview. What do you want our listeners to take away from this interview? What are your final thoughts we should all take some time to ponder for a bit? Q9: For people to learn more about your book, podcast and the work you do at Shift Management Inc, is the best place to learn more, your website? https://shiftworkplace.com/ Thank you for meeting with me today, and sharing your vision for a happier, more productive workplace with the world. You've given me a lot to think about, and strategies to shift to soul-enhancing thoughts that bring joy with my work, and ways that we can all shift away from when we are soul-diminishing. FOLLOW DR.

Workplace Misbehaviour: Laurie Taylor talks to Paul Thompson, Emeritus Professor of Employment Studies at the University of Stirling, about workers behaving badly, from pilferage and absenteeism to the deployment of satirical humour and dissent on social media. In what ways has the modern workplace facilitated new kinds of recalcitrance? Also, Rebecca Scott, Senior Lecturer in Marketing at the University of Cardiff, explores bullying and aggressive behaviour among chefs employed in fine dining restaurants. Does the isolation of the work itself, combined with the geography of elite kitchens, lead to outrageous conduct that would be condemned elsewhere? Producer: Jayne Egerton
My guest this week is from Vienna, Austria. I'm interested in talking to people who love what they do in any part of the world, so others can see what's possible for them! (So if you have any recommendations for guests, send them my way.) Ronny Leber is entertaining people at stadiums and events all around the world. And you'll be amazed at his story. What's moving me? What is it? What do I want to learn? These are just some of the questions he's asked himself along the way. He worked with Tony Robbins half of his life, putting on cool events all over the world. Events always excited him; he wanted to be a part of them. And because of this passion to be in front of people, he wanted to be better at everything: entertaining, singing, acting, dancing, and speaking. So he just sat back and dreamt of it - no just kidding. He learned to do all of those things better, so that he could reach his goals. It's called taking action. No matter how small, action is key. Then, on November 4, 2018, he ran a marathon in NY, after being unable to train due to an injury, and told himself: forget everything you think you know; your desire will stand the test of time. Period. Then he told himself: I'm going to finish today! Just like the marathon he finally finished that day, he encourages us to keep moving forward. Everyone has setbacks. You will eventually get there! It's inevitable (but only if you keep moving).
