  • #147 - Power, Progress, and Generative Conflict - with Regina Smith & Dr. Amanda Aguilera (re-release)

    13/07/2021 Duração: 55min

    In moments of conflict, it can be difficult to stay present amongst our discomfort. However, when we lean into love and compassion we might begin to see conflict in a generative light. In this episode of the Reboot Podcast, Jerry is joined by Regina Smith, MA and Amanda Aguilera, PsyD, experts in the field of power dynamics, conflict, and equity. In this conversation, Regina and Amanda examine and characterize the intersectionality of power dynamics and expound on the various ways power is conferred in our culture (and our workplaces). They highlight how conflict avoidance is often most detrimental to those in the down power role and why expanding our capacity to be in conflict is necessary for progress. The conversation explores how cultivating a positive outlook towards conflict supports our ability to engage empathetically and skillfully when moments of friction arise. By introducing the notion of generative conflict (and the idea of radical collaboration), they underscore why love, community, and connecti

  • Reboot Extra #7: Women’s Conversations - I Am Enough: Vulnerability, Imposter Syndrome, and Confidence (re-release)

    29/06/2021 Duração: 50min

    When it comes to confidence, feeling A-Ok with showing vulnerability, and trying to avoid the sneaky snares of Imposter Syndrome, we often feel at odds, torn between the parts of us that say, “Who do you think you are?” and the parts of us who know who we are. Self-doubt and inadequacy can creep in and color the most assured parts of us at times. But, what’s really at play here? We know it’s an inside job to keep ourselves clear-headed and attuned with our inner knowing, regardless of what the world throws our way in terms of perceptions, biases, and double standards. How do we, as women, stay in our own bodies, hold fast to our own truths, and not view ourselves through the eyes and expectations of others in the world-at-large? Who do you choose to be? What life do you want to lead? In this third episode of our Women Conversation series, Reboot Co-founder Ali Schultz joins fellow coaches Ann Mehl, Heather Jassy, and Miriam Meima for an exploration of how imposter syndrome grips women, the masks they feel t

They shine a light on the pressure founders feel to grow the business rapidly, the lionization of venture capital, and the true human cost of failure. Leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!

    This being human is a profoundly awesome adventure; our lives are peppered with moments of happiness, joy, and wonder, but our experiences can be messy, exhausting, and heavy too.

In this episode, Ryan opens up about the inherent loneliness that comes with being a CEO and reveals how a particularly challenging period in his life exacerbated those feelings of isolation.

  • #143 - We're All Carrying Something - with Gino Zahnd & Jerry Colonna

    20/04/2021 Duração: 49min

    As frequent listeners of the podcast can attest, a well-formed open, honest question can be a catalyst for radical self-inquiry and deep inner work. For Gino Zahnd, the founder of Cozy and Seabright, that question was, “What would I like the people that I work with to know about me that they don’t know?.” Gino, who lives with a rare genetic order called Fabry Disease, shares how one profound question asked at Reboot Bootcamp gave him the courage to share his health struggles with his team and ultimately led to a life-changing kidney donation from a colleague. Jerry chats with Gino about how things have changed since his Bootcamp experience in 2016, his decision to step down as CEO of Cozy, and his new life in Colorado. Leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!

    24/09/2020 Duração: 01h02min

    Along the entrepreneurial journey there comes a time and place for all leaders where we lift our heads from the fog of busyness to find ourselves on an unknown path. Knowing where we are isn’t exactly where we intended to be, we look to the past for clues to how we’ve landed in this spot. For many, this is the integral moment in which we come to realize that our internal and external selves have fallen out of alignment. Our guest on this episode of the Reboot Podcast is Shizu Okusa, Founder & CEO of Wellthy & Co. Feeling stagnant and unsure, Shizu looks to Jerry for support and clarity in discerning the best future for her company and herself. Like most leaders in a position of power, Shizu feels the pull of responsibility to her investors and employees to, “Do the right thing.” As the conversation develops, Jerry aids Shizu in unpacking how intergenerational familial trauma may have manifested as a set of subroutines, directly influencing how she shows up in leadership and life.
