    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “With writing, somebody is holding up a mirror and you’re getting to look into the mirror and see yourself.

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “We have been told to [eat and exercise] a certain way and you do it right or not at all.

    21/04/2022 Duração: 48min

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “Oftentimes, we hear people saying that they’re inviting everyone and everyone can input their own opinion. That’s great, that’s a start, but that doesn’t actually necessarily mean belonging. When you invite them, what happens when they get there? What’s their experience? That’s belonging.” - Rumeet Billan  New research shows that almost half of employed Americans are thinking about leaving their current jobs. Those who are considering making a switch are less likely to feel a sense of belonging in their current workplace, which is most often associated with being treated fairly and respectfully. Today’s Finding Brave expert guest has conducted extensive research to show that belonging is good for business, and how there are multiple opportunities for leaders and employees at all levels to drive a sense of belonging for all members of the organization.  Dr. Rumeet Billan is an award-winning, internationally recogni

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “If you’re talking to the same people, you are going to get the same answer. If you’ve got the same people in the room, I guarantee you you’re going to get the same answer [about diversity].” - Fields Jackson, Jr.  When people are held accountable for budgets, sales, etc., you clearly see who can measure up. When a leader is held accountable for any type of diversity measurement and metric, the same clear picture emerges. The only difference is that so few have been held accountable for diversity - until now. Today’s Finding Brave expert guest pulls back the curtain on what leaders and organizations have to start doing right now if they are truly committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace. ​​Fields Jackson, Jr. is the Founder and CEO and Chief Cheerleader of Racing Toward Diversity Magazine, and adjunct professor, teaching Principles of Business at Shaw University.

    07/04/2022 Duração: 35min

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “Sometimes it’s just best to let the product and the customer be together. Don’t get in the way and don’t misinterpret the signal. Let the customer tell you exactly how it is they want this experience to lay itself out, and then let that further dictate how you should shape the product vision and the vision for the company. You’re really putting all that control in the hands of the customer.” - Mahesh M. Thakur There are certain strategies that large company executives, startup founders and CEOs can adopt to accelerate the growth of their revenue and businesses, and this is a subject that we haven’t focused on yet on this podcast.

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “If culture is the antidote, how do you define it? Where are you headed? Is there a ‘from-to’ that’s required both to embrace diversity and drive inclusion, and to thrive in this environment? I think finding ways to keep your fingers on the pulse, frequently, is really critical.” - Rose Gailey One of the most important aspects of an organization is its culture, for so many reasons, which is why on today’s episode we take a look at how organizations can take concrete steps to improve their culture and at the same time, bolster business outcomes. However, as our Finding Brave guest reveals, culture must first be defined. It is also a journey, not a destination, with the secret ingredient being communication at all levels.  Rose Gailey is a partner and global lead for organization acceleration and culture shaping for Heidrick Consulting at Heidrick & Struggles, and a co-author of Future Focused: Shape Your Culture

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “The whole book is about me finding happiness in my own way, and what it looked like for someone like me to walk through what I did, be it losing 100 pounds, or facing drug and alcohol addiction and then eventually pivoting in my career. It was all of these things that allowed me to find what happiness was for me, and then redefine it.” - Josh Peck  Today’s Finding Brave guest shares his view that happiness is beside the point, and life is really all about finding contentment through relationships, curiosity, and connection. He is ready to chip away at the glitz and glamor to expose the highs and lows of his journey as an actor and influencer, and I could not be more excited to share this candid and thought-provoking conversation with you today.  Josh Peck has established himself as one of Hollywood's rising talents, making the transition from child actor to leading man, and social media influencer.

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “We have to be really honest with ourselves, which I think is sometimes the hardest part.

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “There are a lot of gaps to be bridged, and the only way that starts is by getting yourself into a dynamic, personally, where you understand that you’re part of the fabric. Be responsible for how you show up because that’s where it starts.” - Jennifer Edwards   “When we walk into places where people are fighting so hard, but they’re not showing up correctly in the fight, what’s at stake for them? What are they not sharing here that I don’t know? When you know somebody’s personal story and their lived backgrounds, you cannot deny them their humanity.” - Katie McCleary  How you show up, including your energy, presence, listening, and language, shapes key outcomes in the situations you find yourself in each day.

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “In the process of networking, you hone your story. You actually get a better idea of what you’re trying to convey, how people are reacting to it, and how you need to modify it over time to become even better at telling your story.” - Pat Hedley  Experts in the career, business and entrepreneurial space have said that your network is everything, but many people have a somewhat negative view of networking, viewing it as transactional, perhaps even unnecessary, and certainly burdensome. Today’s Finding Brave expert guest reframes networking as something that is essential, accessible, and life-affirming.

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “People give up too quickly. They start a campaign and do SEO or paid ads, and if it doesn’t work out in the first month or two, or even three months, they stop.

    Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “The reason why I wrote so many one-woman shows over the years, and then I would always get films, is because it’s almost like dating.

Work begets work, but there were dry periods where I thought it was all over.” - Siobhan Fallon Hogan I’ve interviewed a lot of amazing individuals on this podcast and for my Forbes blog, including Pulitzer Prize winners and top leaders from around the world in all kinds of fascinating industries, and today’s guest is no exception.
