The world of work continues to change in significant ways. Our ability to be creative, individually and collectively, is essential to our success. My guest today, Steven Kowalski, knows this and has been teaching it for decades. He’s the author of Creative Together: Sparking Innovation in the New World of Work. In our conversation we talk about how to embrace our personal creativity and create the conditions for our teams to be creative with one another…leading to enhanced collaboration and increased performance.
Emotional intelligence is so important to our success and fulfillment in business, relationships, and life. It’s also essential for strong leadership and healthy teams. However, beyond emotional intelligence is emotional freedom – where we can deeply and freely feel all our emotions with courage, and we give other people permission to do the same. On this episode, I talk about why this is so important, how it can be challenging, and some specific ways to experience emotional freedom.

On this episode, I talk about the power of our energy and how we can tap into intention and even magic to create what we truly want at work and in life.Full Show Notes

On this episode, I talk about what it means to hold space, why it can be challenging, and some specific ways we can do it effectively for others, as well as for ourselves.(more…) Full Show Notes
