Your Virtues Project

November 23, 2022

Our conversation about VIRTUES is one you will find very interesting! While we have moved to instant and virtual connections, the way we communicate with our young people and each other as adults can be very black and white and super quick! Often we mis-interrupt digital communciations depending on the frame of miond we are in!

Gladys and I delve in to the importance of role modelling respectful behaviours and language with our young people and their parents/carers which has major ramifications for workplace and leadership cultures.

Listen in as we share that seeing others through the lens of virtues helps us to see the goodness in others, so we can become more understanding, positive and more creative in problem solving. The importance of the words we use in our daily conversation, especially when we acknowledge our children and youth when they have done well or encouraging them to do better. The use of our words can shape the inner image of our children that builds authentic self-esteem.

We hope you enjoy this conversation and provoke interest in discovering how an understanding of virtues and their role can influence your workplace and family relationships and communities you belong too.

Intentionally Conscious Impact

Intentionally Conscious Impact

November 15, 2022
 
Listeners you know when you 'bump ' into someone who 'thrives' in adversity and intentionally conscious life and work! Cathy Dimarchos is one such gal and in this episode of #thrivngmatterspodcast we give significant reverence to 'listening'.

Cathy has 35 years of people business in her treasure chest and she is so very open to sharing her stories of self awareness and growth that this could be a masterclass!

Listen in as we talk about the notion of 'paying forward' (Live, Eat and Breathe) and how this mindset is crucial to what our youth needs to understand their role in humanity's future leadership and evolution. Be comfortable with being uncomfortable is a life work lesson worth developing.

Cathy also shares some of her 'non negotiable' thriving habits and her skills of 'leading self' and mitigating risk with a philanthropic outlook - leadership 101! Knowing the difference between “Being conscious”, “Being intentional”
and “being intentionally conscious” is explained. Knowing what #impact you are having on the world is a crucial touch point for all Cathy does.

We hope you enjoy this conversation - an ordinary gal doing some 'extra-ordinary' things in life and work!

Back Yourself In!

Back Yourself In!

June 28, 2022

Join Luke Buesnel as we discover that he is an 'explorer of life' and the telling of his story has bought him to the entrepreneur space that he is totally embracing!

Tune is to our conversation where we find a few common connections, have a laugh at the coincidences and talk a 'hero's journey' that we all can reasonate with.

Luke has stepped through his career changes, boosting his resiliency skills into super powers he needed to 'back himself' when the chips were down.

Listen in as we learn, I'm sure you will be inspired about his insights and learnings and importance of telling stories and how to tell a great one!.
How resilience (and never backing down) is the key to building a business.
And how Story League started from where many listeners will currently be – frustrated, angry and undervalued in a corporate job… until he was sacked, and went out on his own.

Luke also shares that a table tennis table, video games, or a monthly in-house barista don’t make culture. Culture is what you do and how you behave when nobody is looking.

I hope you enjoy our conversation! Every podcaster loves a little love, so share this with someone who you think will benefit and enjoy and leave a review on their fav podcast platform.

Karen Chaston knows that if you feel that there is something missing in your life maybe that something is you!

A life changing event in July 2011 with the death of her 27 yrs old son Dan created a totally new space for Karen to understand people more.

Karen shares her 9 areas of life and the Five Step Process that makes the loss easier to manage, an empowering process:
1. Stop
2. Accept
3. Identify (forgiveness)
4. Complete acknowledgement (out loud)
