Ubuntu: Humanity's Operating System

Getrude Matsche embodies Ubuntu – the African philosophy with which she grew up in a small town in Zimbabwe. She’s a warm-hearted whirlwind of passion, drive, energy and vision, and believes she has been given this life in order to make a difference to the world and to even out the inequality she sees.

The Ubuntu philosophy is a way of acknowledging our common humanity, and it starts at home. In this episode we talk about the loneliness and isolation so many experience in Western society, and how we can change it. In Getrude’s words:

A person is only a person through other people.

I am because you are.

There is only WE.

In her 2013 TEDx talk (she has since presented another) Getrude described the African woman as the personification of “the downtrodden human being”. Since then, Getrude has been a facilitator for many social impact projects to help empower women, some of which she describes in this episode. It’s her intention that the HerStory women’s global empowerment movement she founded inspire, uplift, and connect one million women, and she’s well on the way to achieving that goal!

Unconscious Bias: uncovering our limiting assumptions

Unconscious bias – it’s part of our innate survival mechanism and, at its worst, it can threaten our survival.

Justine Cooper has been delving into and training people, teams and organisations on unconscious bias for decades. With humility, humanity and wisdom she talks us through her personal realisations and experience around unconscious bias, how we can become aware of our own biases and how, even with small actions, we can have a huge positive ripple effect.

Justine is Head of Brook Graham Asia Pacific. The headline words on Brook Graham’s website are Embracing diversity. Inspiring inclusion. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could acknowledge and celebrate all the richness, colour and variety in us and around us! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all felt that we belonged!

In this episode Justine gives us first steps as well as the wonderful, broad big picture view of what’s possible through uncovering and purging limiting and negative biases. I highly recommend getting curious and having a listen. It’s so worth it!

Stepping into your Joy

Have you ever been to a business networking event which starts with a meditation? No? Justin’s does! And by the way, no one talks about their business or what they do. It’s Different.

Justin Cooper is a man with passion and drive, and in this episode we explore mission and purpose, and a way of approaching business and business practice that values intuition, fun, vulnerability, stepping away from safe (and limiting) conventions and embracing a heart-centred approach.

Justin talks about his burning epiphanies and a different awareness around purpose and business accountability. Most importantly, he talks about ‘Purpose’ as a process of continually stepping into your joy.

Ahhh… It’s like breathing fresh air and sunshine.

Difficult Conversations - how to get them right!

Who hasn’t ever agonised over a difficult but necessary conversation OR avoided it altogether? (Yep, I hear silence here…)

Cameron Shepherd is the master of ‘difficult conversations’. As an HR consultant he’s had to have them on behalf of different companies in vastly varying situations all over the world. Cam has learned through experience, and that’s obvious when you hear him speak. Now he teaches other people how to have these conversations in the most positive, constructive way possible.

And we’re talking not only business conversations here, but difficult conversations we all, at some time or other, need to have with family, friends, colleagues etc. Many of us avoid them, which then creates bigger problems. Can you relate?!

Cam’s a man with a good heart, who’s very open about his experiences in learning how, and how not to conduct difficult conversations. The clarity he gives around this topic is both refreshing and a relief!

Tune in to learn how to “do” difficult conversations well.

Challenges, Injuries & Hope

Ross De Vincentiis is a guy who, to put it euphemistically, LOVES a challenge. He thrives on it!

In this episode we talk about Ross’s career in the military, from infantry soldier to intelligence, the challenges, stories, injuries and what led him to become the holistic health, movement and nutrition coach he is now.

We talk the role of the mind in health and injury recovery, placebo and nocebo and the importance of being aware of the ideas we accept and reject. Ross is also candid about why he finds running a business more stressful than deployment in a war zone!

You’ll love Ross’s openness and humour, as well as his wisdom learned the hard way – through practical experience. For anyone suffering from an injury or illness, or for anyone who’s been told they’ll never be physically healed again, this is a MUST-listen.

You’ll find hope (and possibly a different road) here.

The Big Change Game

Powerhouse Virtual CEO and CEO of Financial Executive Women, Alex Tullio, is raw, honest and oh so naturally insightful as we cover such diverse areas as moving from rule-follower to risk-taker, purpose and whether we need it, the painful, confronting, challenging road to change (on the inside first!) and deleting the j*** word from our vocabulary.

Alex is candid about some of the challenges she’s had on the way to her sense of personal freedom, and the changes she first made within herself to be in a position to affect positive change on what is turning out to be a global level.

She’s interviewed over 100 leaders in their fields in the FEW livestream series over the past 10 months, and has recognised that almost 100% of those high achievers feel like an imposter on some level. Isn’t it time to change that!?

She’s funny, creative and the kind of person you want in your corner (and yes, she’s my personal virtual CEO)!

You don’t want to miss this one.

Journey To Ecstasy Through Music

Mark Kruger lived and breathed music for over 20 years. Being a concert pianist isn’t a job or even a vocation, it’s an all-absorbing way of life. It means 6-8 hours a day practising, preparing pieces of music over months and months. It means achieving the highest level of technical mastery in order to be an uninhibited servant of the music. It means extraordinary focus, commitment and striving for that often elusive indescribable experience of… elation… ecstasy… wholeness, perhaps.

In this conversation Mark talks about not only those experiences of elation, but the grind of the life of a concert pianist. He speaks candidly of his journey of self-discovery through music, and what ultimately led him to change his life direction.
