7 Skills for the Future


Interview with Barb Garrison

Season 6, Ep. 4

Delighted to be interviewing fantastic careers coach Barb Garrison all the way from Boulder, Colorado. We talk about 3 key skills that we feel are absolutely crucial right now: empathy, adaptability and integrity. We first decided to do this episode before the COVID-19 crisis hit and originally we were going to focus on the importance of all 7 skills and how they show up in careers and with the people she coaches. But we decided it made far more sense to connect with the process of what we are all experiencing right now and to zero in on these three skills.

I love Barb's take on integrity and how we relate to that skill for ourselves, the world crying out for empathy right now and the huge, colossal necessity and task of being and learning how to be adaptable.

I hope to meet Barb in person one day. She hails from Colorado where I used to live many moons ago - a place that is very close to my heart.

Season 7, Ep. 7
On this week’s episode I’m talking with Anne Goldenhospitality industry veteran and General Manager of Pan Pacific London, opening next year. Now we all know that the hospitality industry, in particular, has been so severely hit by the pandemic. Perhaps it sounds crazy that anyone is even thinking of launching a brand new hotel in central London in early 2021.I speak with Anne about truly rising up and finding energy and hope in the middle o great uncertainty. Anne is inspirational and what she has to say is just as important for all other industries seeking to rise up and perhaps, in many ways, reinvent themselves. What are some of the lessons we are learning? How can we build resilience? And what does rising up really mean? It’s something we are all having to do as we get ready to face a new year that will be a mix of new hope, heartache and change as we transition to what I think WILL be a new and exciting era of opportunity if we can learn to see it that way!Seasoned hotelierAnne Golden joins Pan Pacific London as General Manager, overseeing the first London opening for Pan Pacific Hotels Group.With considerable London experience working with luxury brands such as Morgans Hotel Group – the original boutique lifestyle brand and hotel disruptor – and Mondrian, Anne has successfully managed new hotel openings and pioneered rebrandings.

Building resilience and strong mental health

Season 7, Ep. 6
I believe that so much of building strong mental health and resilience lies in our hands. For me it’s about self-awareness more than anything else. An ability to understand what triggers you, why you might feel overwhelmed sometimes but also being able to feel good about yourself and have good relationships with others. I think it’s something quite active rather than just the state of your mental health if that makes sense. So you have strategies in place - you practice self-care and acceptance and you have healthy ways of processing your emotions.Resilience is your ability to manage stress and uncertainty well. To be able to bounce back but this doesn’t mean that you don’t experience frustration, upset and disappointment - you do but you don’t stay down for long. You know how to get back up fast. Resilient people never think of themselves as victims – they focus their time and energy on changing the things that they have control over.Join me on this week's podcast episode for lots of tips and ideas for building resilience and mental health. We need to do this now more than ever as we start to move towards what is coming next as we start seeing an end to the pandemic.“Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it's less good than the one you had before. You can fight it, you can do nothing but scream about what you've lost, or you can accept that and try to put together something that's good.”― Elizabeth Edwards#resilience #mentalhealth #awareness #7skillsforthefuture #wellbeing

Interview with Chris Tate - trader, immunologist and resilience expert

Season 7, Ep. 5
What do trading and immunology have in common with building resilience and adaptability? A lot, it turns out. Chris joins us on this episode from Melbourne, Australia for a fascinating look at being far more comfortable with being wrong and not knowing all the answers. We also talk about the importance of sitting and pausing with anxiety and difficult thoughts rather than always rushing towards distraction. It's so important to create space to reflect and to process change and to really know that everything, even this crazy pandemic, is temporary.When we are faced with uncertainty and stress, what we find hardest is a sense of loss of power. Chris says that as long as we are above ground and breathing we always have choices and decisions that we can make. Focusing on what you can control is so key.What determines your resilience is what narrative you construct with the future that is now unfolding. Tomorrow is always opaque and we can never know what it brings. Listen now for some great tips and ideas to help you process all this uncertainty and start looking towards tomorrow with hope and strength.#resilience #mentalhealth #stressaware #podcast #7skillsforthefutureChris Tate (www.tradinggame.com.au)is a full-time private trader and author of The Art of Trading and The Art of Options Trading.
