Have you ever wondered why you show up as different people on different days? The reason relates to the various ego states that simultaneously are present within each of us. The problem is when the "librarian" show up when we are giving a speech and we need the "entertainer" to show up instead.
In this episode we discuss how to "tap" into the right ego state (when you listen to the episode you'll see why that is so punny ;) We discuss ego state therapy and how you can get the right ego to show up at the right time.
We are joined by the fabulous Mike Mandel, regarded as the world's greatest hypnotist to discuss this topic and get some practical tips you can start using today (e.g. tapping and inner active cards ... listen it to learn more).
Mike Mandel single handedly reinvented the persona of the stage hypnotist, rescuing it from its tacky beginnings and giving it rock star appeal. Widely regarded as the world’s greatest hypnotist, Mike Mandel has 18 nominations and 6 awards for excellence in entertainment. In June 2000 he was presented with the COCA Hall of Fame Award, previously won by Sarah McLaughlin, the Tragically Hip and Jim Carrey.
Mike is a qualified trainer of neurolinguistic programming (NLP) and is affiliated with NLPWorks, who offer Canada’s most complete NLP training. He teaches advanced Ericksonian hypnosis both via online training and in a live classroom in Toronto, the hypnotic world epicenter. He affectionately refers to his students as hypnotic storm riders across the world. You can learn more about Mike at: https://mikemandelhypnosis.com

If you wait to have, so you can do and then be a better you ... you'll be waiting a very long time staying stuck exactly where you are at now. In order to "be" a better us, we need to step into being that person now and do the things that better self would do. You have to "be" then "do" and you will then "have" what you desire.
Learn how pretending to be Snow White can actually help let out some of our best qualities we are holding back from letting the world see. We have to first pretend and then forget you are pretending (e.g. see how some of the best actors put on their best performances). Fake it until you make it, etc... and stick out your turtle neck (when you listen to the episode it will make a lot more sense :)

Fear is a big thing holding people back from achieving their full potential. We can overcome fear when we acquire and develop empowering tools, live large and feel powerful. When fear relates to your physical safety it's time to learn some self defense.

Teri provides us with some practical, real-world ways to be more aware, large and in-charge.

Does it annoy you when you are trying to stay positive and someone else starts bringing you down with their negativity? What if that other person is actually yourself? We are often our own worst critic.
In this episode we discuss how you can use self-talk and gratitude practices to encourage yourself and keep things in perspective. When we look back on what we have accomplished, feel and express gratitude we can get back in the ring and keep moving forward.

At one time or another we have all been looking for a new job, which means the emotional roller coaster of submitting job applications, resumes, and going through the interview process. This can be a very stressful time for applicants, but also can have a big brand impact on the organizations that are hiring if they don't provide a good experience.
In this episode we discuss how to improve the quality of the candidate experience ... what organizations can do to improve the process, and what candidates can do to keep the hiring process in perspective and remain positive during the roller coaster of finding your next job.
We are joined by Kevin Grossman, the President of The Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience.

WA & CA :) to discuss some practical things we can all do to reduce conflict and help us keep a positive attitude when we experience challenging times, and challenging people.

Much of the stress people experience is caused by the thoughts and stories we tell ourselves ... which are usually un-founded. Taking a pause to think critically, to really assess our situation, and using cognitive flexibility will reduce our anxiety.
Not sure what cognitive flexibility is and how to develop it? Check out the episode.
We are joined by Dr. Christina Donaldson, a psychologist and adjunct professor at Antioch University.
