ML293: Caren Kenney (CEO of Evolve Leadership)
Leaders today have more resources, training, and support than they have ever had in history, yet leadership failures, dismissals and resignations are at an all-time high. Likewise, employees are receiving more benefits, resources, and flexibility than they’ve ever had before yet we are seeing alarming rates of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues among employees, and many are quitting their jobs with an attitude that it’s just not worth it.
For years Caren Kenney, CEO of Evolve Leadership, C-suite executive coach, and former Executive Director at the Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute, has recognized the link between mental and physical wellbeing and leadership and human performance. Her work in this area began in 2001 as the co-founder of a company that developed the world’s first direct-to-consumer digital behavioral health coaching programs – which were ultimately acquired by Johnson & Johnson.
Six years ago, Caren led the creation of the world’s first whole-person, whole-life C-suite executive coaching and development programs and today leads a global team of executive coaches, physiologists, dietitians and other leadership and human performance experts who are training leaders, teams and organization to develop higher levels of physical wellbeing, mental and emotional resilience, and character-centered leadership – which she sees as the key to developing strong, sustainable leaders who will thrive in all
areas of their lives.

ML304: Adeyemi Adeyosoye (Founder of The Soul School)39:31Adeyemi Adeyosoye spent over 11 years learning about spirituality, quantum physics, and energy. He studied Mechanical engineering and has an extensive background in Business Development and Sales. He’s helped companies accelerate their growth and build successful teams. Throughout his life, he has always had an insatiable appetite to gain a deeper knowledge about spirituality and the evolution of the human spirit. He’s read hundreds of books, attended numerous retreats, and invested thousands of dollars into personal development courses, all with the single intention of accelerating the development of his soul. Now we don’t talk about this much in leadership, but we should…and we’re about to do just that. Adeyemi created The Soul School because, after his personal journey, he realized that the path to spiritual activation is unnecessarily complex for most people. It is filled with dense information and an endless amount of YouTube videos that repeat the same surface-level stuff while wasting your time. To put it mildly, if you are someone who yearns to go deep like me, you are forced to spend hundreds of hours of your precious time and obscene amounts of money researching while constantly feeling like you’re missing something. Worst of all, most of the concepts can't be applied to improve your physical, financial, and emotional well-being. The Soul School, is a game-changer where you’ll learn DEEP and HIDDEN spiritual concepts that are specifically designed to accelerate the Evolution of your Soul and as a result, supremely up-level your leadership. This is a place where you are able to advance your life financially, emotionally, and physically as you learn. So get excited because your true transformation starts right now!More Info: The Soul SchoolSponsors: Master Your Podcast Course: MasterYourSwagFree Coaching Session: Master Leadership 360 CoachingSupport Our Show: Click HereLily's Story: My Trust Manifesto

ML302: David Latten (Leader at Logitech)34:46David Latten is the Head of Global Indirect Procurement and Supplier Diversity & Equality at Logitech. Lean in as he discusses what he's passionate about, his niche: As of today, despite all our best supplier diversity efforts, only 6.1% of the total US corporate spending goes to Black, women and other under-represented suppliers. The other 94% of corporate spend represents a vast untapped opportunity to positively impact equality. Most of this 94% of non-diverse spend is with very large suppliers. These large, non-diverse organizations employ millions of people across many countries and accrue trillions of revenue each year. These inﬂuential companies have the power to shape a gender fair future and in turn we have the power to inﬂuence them. We will not achieve gender equality without these large organizations taking a stand. Logitech along with Gender Fair co-founded The Coalition For Gender Fair Procurement with the simple aim of leveraging the multi-trillion dollar spending power of corporate procurement as a lever to provoke urgently needed progress towards gender equality. In coalition with GenderFair, Logitech has started assessing their high impact (high headcount and/or high revenue) suppliers for gender fairness using GenderFair/Ethisphere assessment based on the UN WEPs. We will continue to assess these suppliers each year with the hope and expectation of seeing progress in their gender fairness. We will also look to direct future spend decisions towards gender fair organizations. But this is not enough. We need others to take action with us. It is only by coming together that we can make meaningful progress towards gender equality. Only by uniting as an industry and with one voice asking one simple question; “Are you Gender Fair?” that we can fully unlock our inﬂuence for equality. None of us alone can be as inﬂuential as all of us together Our ultimate goal is to engender an industry wide change in procurement practices whereby all organizations assess all their high impact suppliers for gender fairness as a matter of course as we do today for risk, privacy, data security etc... and then make spend decisions accordingly. As a coalition we want to create a new procurement standard for gender equality. Finally, we are aware that to amplify the impact of this initiative, and to provoke industry wide change, we need allies. Our impact starts by extending an invitation for other progressive organizations to join Logitech, Gender Fair and Andela as founding members of the coalition.Sponsors: Master Your Podcast Course: MasterYourSwagFree Coaching Session: Master Leadership 360 CoachingSupport Our Show: Click HereLily's Story: My Trust Manifesto
