Balancing and Bringing Together our Two Energies with Noa Ronen

Ep. 16

Naming and classifying things give us order and direction; it is helpful to know where we can find those things and perhaps what to expect from them. Something similar happens when we meet someone. We put them in a box and create an idea of how they are, how they think, and so forth, depending on their title or job. But most importantly, we do that to ourselves; we place ourselves in the category we think we belong to, and that can be limiting. We'll hardly picture ourselves doing something different from what someone in that box is expected to do. 

Today I'm joined by Noa Ronen, a true outside of the box coach. She is an Executive Coach, Author, a Group Coach, Blogger, and a Vlogger. Noa has over 20 years of experience in change management, HR and project management, talent development and relocation, and ex-pat coaching. Throughout her coaching, Noa's mission is to help people dare, stirring a conscious leaders' movement. 

In this episode, we talked about Noa's particular journey in becoming a coach, her idea of coaching before, and how it evolved into what it is today. We also talked about the differences between being and doing energy and what we can do to find our courage. Noa kindly shared her perspective on values and how they guide us throughout our lives. We talked about her latest book, about her ego, and how she reassessed her why after asking honest questions to herself. 

Noa also shared the details of her Walking Mastermind, a revolutionary coaching group session she does for no charge.

Committing to the Larger Whole, Malembe Rise

Ep. 14
When it comes to humanitarian help, even the purest desire of contributing to the ones in need can be harmful. The idea of coming from a western civilization to help or solve a problem is both racist and colonialist. Countless well-intentioned initiatives ended up as UFOs (Unfinished Objects) in several African countries, littering the landscape. What undeveloped countries need is consistent actions sustained in extended periods, not a five years project that will end as fast as it started after that time is over.In this episode, we talk with Ann Marie Thomson, Ph.D. She is a retired Adjunct Professor at the O'Neil School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA), Indiana University. She holds a B.A. in International Relations from North Park University, an Associate Degree in Nursing, with RN licensure, a Masters in Public Affairs, and a Ph.D. in Public Policy and Comparative Politics at Indiana University, Bloomington, IN.Born and raised in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ann Marie is passionate about finding a way to make cross-cultural interactions contribute positively to social justice. She also co-founded the Bloomington-based education NGO, Giving Back to Africa, in 2007, which recently morphed into Malembe Rise.We had an inspiring conversation about her work as a volunteer and Malembe Rise's actions in the Rep Dem of Congo. She kindly shared her parents' story as volunteers themselves and their lifetime work in the African country.

Defining Success to Meet your Goals with Karen Mangia

Ep. 13
Sometimes the modern world looks like a crazy race to success, where we all looking to the side, comparing and measuring our results with each other. Everything happens so fast we barely have time to think or even enjoy what we've accomplished so far. Many of us fail to see that we insist on pushing against noes instead of going after the yesses. A no will keep us stuck, while a yes will move us forward, will put us in contact with a whole set of opportunities. A shortcut to the success line might be taking a pause, looking around, focusing on our strengths, and saying no to what doesn't serve us.Joining me today is Karen Mangia, Vice President, Customer and Market Insights at Salesforce, 3x Best Selling Author, and TEDx Speaker. She works with customers worldwide to solve complex, strategic business difficulties and get a better future growth perspective.
