The Importance of an Expanded Worldview with Tayo Rockson

Season 2, Ep. 4

Almost one year after our first conversation, I'm honored to welcome Sarah Castor to the show again. This time, to talk about Malembe Rise's next event on September 18th, 2021, which will have Tayo Rockson as its main attraction. 

In this episode, we discuss why Malembe Rise chose Tayo over hundreds of orators and the things he brings to the table others speakers don't. We also talk about the communication issues the world is experiencing, the importance of celebrating our differences and build with them, rather than separate and destroy. Sarah shares her expectations about the event and the things she believes we can accomplish through it. 

Some Questions I Ask:

  • Why did you decide to have an event with Tayo versus just doing something that says, please give to Malembe Rise? (1:29)
  • How do you think his presence will add to our mission's conversation? (5:45)
  • What would you say it is if you had to sum up what you want this event to accomplish? (9:10)

In This Episode, You Will Learn:

  • The things Tayo can add that no one else can (2:48)
  • Tayo's message is necessary for Indianapolis, the US, and the world (4:02)
  • The things people can expect from joining Tayo's event (7:13)
  • There is a lot of people hungry for a change around the world (12:25)

Living In Full Color

Season 2, Ep. 2
Even before considering herself an artist, Vanessa Johanning was painting with flowers. She worked for more than 20 years as a garden designer, and her color palette was the thousands of flowers she learned to love and combine. Even in a gift store she had, where she would bring art from other artists, she would never have thought on offering some of her own artistic work.

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.Tune in to Episode 15 of Bravefull to hear more!Some Questions I Ask:You talked about doing energy and being energy.
