Episode #086 - Your Imperfection is Perfect

WELCOME TO EPISODE #086 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Perfection is a myth, a falsehood that, for some reason, so many people chase. This idea of never making mistakes and living this faultless life will bring more stress and unrealistic pursuit.

So what if I told you that by accepting your failures, your faults and your mistakes, you would then be “perfect?”

In this episode, I discuss the benefits of humility and transparency in your personal, and professional, life as you admit your mistakes.

Amongst the personal benefits of stress relief and growth, you can also expect to experience improvement these areas as a leader:

  1. Earning respect from your team

  2. Vulnerability strengthens your team

  3. Leading by example (improving your own humility)

  4. Building a culture of trust

I will dive into the following tactics to adhere to when things go sideways (and they will):

1) Reset your mindset

2) Pause for gratitude

3) Go back to your plan

4) Don’t overcompensate

Episode #077 - Agree to Disagree

WELCOME TO EPISODE #077 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

In our society, nearly everyone has a new megaphone for their opinion and we’ve also become more divisive than ever. Why? We’ve fallen into this habit that if your opinion is different than mine, well, then you’re wrong.

The art of asking follow up questions to learn about others thoughts or stances on issues is all but lost. Even if you don’t agree at all with where they’re coming from, even after you ask, is ok. The lessons learned and the perspective gained just by having the conversation is worth the time.

In this episode, I discuss the value of engaging in conversation with someone you either disagree with or who might be from a very different background than you.

I also share some personal experiences on how just having the discussion has informed me about other cultures and beliefs and enhanced my peripheral view of the world, thus making me more able to have a variety of discussions I would have never been able to engage in before.
