Interview with Paula Alphonse

August 19, 2019

Effective communication and productive interpersonal relationships are key factors to achieving success and self-mastery in life.

As an International Speaker, Leadership Educator, I have spoken to audiences as large as 500 people. I have hosted workshops in Canada, Haiti and Cameroon to both public governments and nonprofit organizations.

My passion and purpose in life is to empower individuals to be confident leaders and effectively reach their full leadership potential. As a result of working with me, clients achieve greater positive impact and the best return on investment not only for themselves but also the organization for which they work. We live in an era where success is too often defined by material things. Instead, I aim to highlight the quantitative and qualitative value of effective interpersonal skills, confidence, effective leadership and relationship management on both the bottom line and the individual’s quality of life.

When you have the opportunity hear me speak, not only will you feel empowered, entertained and inspired but also well-equipped with the tools and structure which generate greater results and higher motivation to take on any challenges in both personal or professional life.

Host of upcoming Podcast It’s Never Too Late
Bestselling Author of The Joy of Later Motherhood
Certified Mental Strength Trainer

A lot of Bettina's work centers around overcoming ageism (the one that's coming from the outside and the one that we do to ourselves) and how to pursue a dream even if we think we're getting too old to do it. We could take our conversation into many directions, like chronological age versus biological age. Since the summit, I took a blood test to test the length of my telomeres and find out my biological age. Turns out, my body is 6 years younger than my chronological age, even after the cancer journey, I had last year!

Interview with 5 Frequencies Authors Jeff Grimshaw and Lynne Viscio

Interview with 5 Frequencies Authors Jeff Grimshaw and Lynne Viscio

August 9, 2019

Your organization’s culture: It’s either an asset or a liability. At this very moment, your culture is helping business performance. Or hurting it.

http://5Frequencies.com

FIVE FREQUENCIES (Logos Institute; June 26, 2019; Hardcover) demystifies culture, with proven and practical tools for leaders. Written by Jeff Grimshaw, Tanya Mann, Lynne Viscio, and Jennifer Landis of leadership consultancy MGStrategy https://mgstrat.com/

Five Frequencies answers one of the most critical questions facing leaders and organizations today: How do you turn into a sustainable source of competitive advantage? Based on 20 years of research, the answer couldn’t be clearer: Intentionally or unintentionally, leaders create culture through the signals they broadcast on Five Frequencies: 1. Their decisions and actions - It’s about showing more than telling, role modeling what you want to see more of, and operating “long-term greedy.” 2. What they reward and recognize - You always get more of what you reward and recognize. The authors reveal what behavioral economists say about making rewards and recognition truly motivating. 3. What they tolerate (or don’t) - Leaders and cultures are ultimately defined by what they do and don’t tolerate...even when it’s unpleasant. 4. How they show up informally - You must build trust and affiliation to make it easier to confront and solve problems—without egos getting in the way. 5. Their formal communications - Sometimes leaders think they can shape a strong culture simply with a robust formal communication program - that doesn’t work. But you can use formal communication to amplify your signals on the other frequencies—and the authors show you how. In Five Frequencies, the authors break down each frequency with several case studies and real-world examples of where leaders and companies have failed (such as Wells Fargo, Enron) and succeeded (the Detroit Fire Department and DBS Bank, Asia) and the specific reasons and action points related to each. Five Frequencies includes follow up assessments to show what’s working and why—so leaders can double-down on what’s effective, and recalibrate what isn’t.

Interview with Allison De Paoli

Interview with Allison De Paoli

July 29, 2019

Here's the link to Dr. Oz's video that was discussed during our interview:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1XNllFiEpo&feature=youtu.be

The best employers inherently know that taking care of their employees means their employees will take care of their customers. Offering a benefits plan that takes care of the employee and doesn’t break the bank, that’s the dream. It can drive higher job satisfaction, improve morale and help with the ever-present issue of employee engagement. Most employers don’t know how to accomplish this – or even that it is possible! 

Allison De Paoli (dih-PAULY) wants every employer she works with to be in complete control of their healthcare spend – driving the maximum value from every dollar and allowing those saved dollars to grow the business and the bottom line. AND she’d like to deliver a world-class benefits program to those employees. Understanding how to drive those savings while finding a world class benefits package can be intimidating. Few insurance professionals understand how to get under the hood and tinker to make the plan work better. 

Allison does. And she’s here today to show us how.

Interview with Steve Wiley

Interview with Steve Wiley

July 26, 2019

My mission is to rid the world of "zombies in the workforce and life." Why? Because, I was one. Though I professed that my faith and family were most important, I did not demonstrate it. 

Eventually, I crashed. I sought and pursued a better way. I am now inspired, productive, and fulfilled in my personal and professional life. I eventually started my own consulting business and authored a book on the topic of healthy life balance (Navigate Chaos). 

I hope my story can inspire others to "Take the CONN" in pursuit of healthy balance and personal fulfillment.
