Show title: Appreciation at Work

Brandon Maslan and Jennifer K. Hill speak with best-selling author, speaker and thought-leader Dr. Paul White about how appreciation can make us better employees and managers. 

Dr. White emphasizes the importances of pausing and listening, as well as understanding what a person's preferred method is for being appreciated {i.e. Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Acts/Services, Gifts (not including bonus or salary), Physical Touch (such as a high five)}. 

He suggests that the best way to appreciate someone is by using their name and appreciating them for something specific (if they prefer words of affirmation), and we honor not just what people do at work, but also what they do outside of work. 

One of the most important things that Dr. White says to do when we are spending time with others via Zoom or in person is to make eye contact, smile, address them by name and to connect in a meaningful way that has the other person feel seen, heard and known.

Title of Show: Self-awareness 

Jennifer Hill and Brandon Maslan discussed the vitalness of self-awareness in landing your dream job, keeping it, and being the best you can be in your career and your life. They shared that the more you look within the more you become aware of your impact on others. Those who seek to put others down often lack self-awareness and blame others for their shortcomings. To succeed in a career, being aware of how you impact others and constantly growing to be the best version of yourself is key. Remember if you fail today, you can recover, learn, and you will win tomorrow! 

If you're being hard on yourself Jennifer suggested beginning your day with this meditation reminder to have more self-compassion and then you can have the impact you seek to have.

Networking: It is still the number one way to land your dream job

Jennifer and Brandon went back to their origins from their first-ever collaboration to talk about a topic that never gets old and only grows in importance, networking. This is perhaps even more important today as the world has gone more virtual than ever before. They provide clear tips, stories, and insights on how you can expand your network, where you can network, and how best to network in order to achieve a successful result. Networking should be mutually beneficial for both parties and in this episode the hosts talk about ways to make that possible.

The exercise the hosts want you to take is:
Write down the problem that you solve, and the group of people you solve it for and the time frame you solve that problem in.
Then reach out to 5 of your closest connections and ask who they know in their network that you should be talking to.

mikeabrashoff.com

Mike Abrashoff is at the center of one of the most remarkable modern day stories of organizational transformation.
At 36, he was selected to be Commander of USS Benfold and was the most junior commanding officer in the Pacific fleet. The challenges of this underachieving destroyer were staggering, with low morale and the highest turnover rate in the Navy. Few thought the ship could improve. Yet 12 months later it was ranked #1 in performance -- using the same crew. How did Mike do it? By replacing command and control leadership with commitment and cohesion. The lesson was clear: Leadership matters and culture is everything.

Since leaving the Navy, Mike has worked with over 1200 organizations instilling leadership initiatives at every level – achieving phenomenal change in unexpected places. Leaders especially identify with Mike being accountable for results in an environment where he couldn’t make the rules. He focused on the one thing he could influence: his crew’s attitude, because culture is the ultimate competitive weapon for any organization. That’s why Wall Street Journal, Fast Company and others have cited Mike’s story. It’s also why Mike is so popular with such a wide range of audiences.

As a keynote speaker, Mike has spoken to every industry and kind of audience – from board retreats to front line personnel, from sales groups to universities, from Fortune 500s to startups. He tailors his message to focus on engagement, execution, change, safety, diversity, leadership, teamwork, innovation, accountability and more.

Jennifer Hill asks author and poet, Janne Robinson, about how she came to live her passion of being a writer. Janne talks about growing up in a non-traditional environment and how that helped her to break free of societal norms and pursue what really mattered to her. Janne also discusses the doubts she overcame on her path to writing her first book “This is for the women who don’t give a fuck.”
jannerobinson.com
Janne Robinson is a 21st-century feminist beat poet. Her voice haunts with the legacy of early feminists and poets such as Gloria Steinem, Charles Bukowski, and Jack Kerouac. Her no sugar shit prose cuts with the honesty and simplicity of Bukowski and the romantic reliability of Kerouac. Her poetry leads like a woman, walking with fire in the footprints of Steinem—breathing sexual liberation, choice, and overall championing women to their birthright of not only equality but leadership.
Robinson notoriously states that her career is to “share slabs of her heart for a living." Her ability to capture the human experience with unrefined sincerity makes her an incredible force in the modern landscape of personal expression.
Her loyal following of enthusiasts on social media are there not only for her brutal honesty and lyrical grace but also for her lifestyle, which is a mirror of her devotion to joy and refusal to work to work to work to die. Robinson’s films and art shit on the societal "shoulds" and norms and encourage people to ‘build their own box’. She is an outrageous idealist and master at effortlessly marrying the life she wishes to live with her work, and this enrages and inspires many who believe they are trapped.
Robinson’s foray into directing and the multimedia world was in directing a spoken word poetry film in NYC involving 18 women reading the lines from her poem, “This Is For The Women Who Don’t Give a Fuck.” The film was a viral sensation online and was nominated for the 2016 Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards.
Janne is very much so crowning at the beginning of what is and will be a triumphant career, and she has begun so with the hearts of millions indebted and watching as it is rare to stumble upon a woman who makes revolution nature.

Jennifer Hill asks best-selling author and international speaker, Gary Douglas, “How do you handle bullies?” Gary offers tips on expanding your consciousness and asking questions rather than getting confrontational. Gary also shares a question that you can ask yourself to generate greater satisfaction and happiness in all areas of your life.

http://www.accessconsciousness.com

Gary Douglas is a best-selling author, international speaker and a sought-after facilitator. He is known for his intensity of awareness and his incredible capacity to facilitate people to ‘know what they know’. He chooses to embody consciousness in everything that he does which inspires others to choose to become more conscious as a result.
Gary came with an exceptional level of awareness into the Midwest middle class ‘white bread’ family and lived the ‘Leave it to Beaver’ childhood. He has a very different view on life and realized that he was so different from most of the people he knew when he was only six years old. He became aware of this difference by watching people create their lives and seeing that none of it was about the joy and the possibilities – it was always about the wrongness of everything.

Gary knew there had to be more than this reality was offering since there was nothing about it that was magical, joyful or expansive. So, he began seeking deeper awareness to life’s mysteries at an early age. Along the way he uncovered a new way forward- one that would create change in the world and in people’s lives. He discovered that magic is all around us; it’s something we create – its consciousness. He recognized that the capacity to be more aware and more conscious was every person’s gift if they were willing to choose it.

Gary has become an internationally recognized thought leader in transforming lives and creating different choices – willing to empower people to see different possibilities and to recognize what is truly possible for them. He believes that if enough people choose to be more aware and more conscious, they will start to see the possibilities of what they have available to them and change what is occurring here on planet earth.
