She shares three strategies for you to try next time you're about to lose your shiitake at work. Learn...

They are high-value, high performers, have high positions in an organization, but because of being that 3D leader, they are starting to diminish their value.” “Empathy means that we are looking to find out what is driving the behavior of these 3D leaders.” “In times of stress, the dark sides of our personalities always come out. But it’s also sometimes the dark sides that help us be super productive and get the results that we’re looking for.”
Episode 44: A Created Life, with Danusia Malina-Derben Excuses are always available. And yet there are people who just go for it in life. They have a spark about them. A knack of creating a big, juicy life, not just reacting to a never-ending to-do list. Danusia Malina-Derben, is one such woman. She's an entrepreneur, academic, and organizational behavior and development expert. Oh, and she's a mum of ten. She's also the host of the School for Mothers and School for Fathers podcasts, and the author of two forthcoming books in 2021.  I asked Danusia to share about being brave and handling her insidious inner critic. How does Danusia set and accomplish unreasonable goals? How does she live a created life on her OWN terms? Our conversation covers: Changing your inner critic's diet (SO good!) Why unreasonable goals and falling on your face is necessary Doing vs Being How do you play the cards of failure when you're on your face? The power of a bold request - you can't get what you don't ask for Grab your cuppa and join us!

People are my thing.” “Unreasonable goals drive accomplishments.”
Episode 43: How to Lead From Behind, with Kelly Wendorf As the world grapples with Covid-19, deep presence and the ability to create a sense of calm and groundedness feel more important than ever in leadership. I'm not just talking about VIP's in the business world. I'm talking about self-leadership too. Today's guest says a leader is someone entrusted with holding the heart of an endeavour or a family. It's someone who inspires us "to hold each other well." (I mean, how beautiful is that?) Kelly Wendorf is a coach, mother, spiritual mentor and founding partner of Equus, an 11-acre experiential learning & discovery campus in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Horses are co-facilitators in their work at the ranch, and much of Kelly's wisdom on leadership has emerged from her life-long observations of the horse herd, a 56-million-year-old system. Kelly's also the author of the forthcoming book, Flying Lead Change, published by Sounds True this autumn. In this episode, we discuss: What it means to lead from behind  Leadership the equine way - tapping into the wisdom of the horse herd Qualities to base your own leadership on What if I don't see myself as charismatic, or having any X-factor? How can I lead? How checking in with your body can change how you plan your diary (and your life) Join us (and alpha horse, Artemis). Links and Resources: Equus Flying Lead Change  Getting Ahead by Leading From Behind Mandy Lehto Mandy Lehto on Instagram Review MoxieCast on iTunes Quotes by Kelly Wendorf: “I love to create conditions for people to have transformative experiences and change their lives.” “The qualities I trust and I look for, both in myself and in those who I trust to lead, are curiosity, vulnerability, porousness.” “These are qualities that are much more powerful because they draw people in.” “Be deeply present with what is—our feelings, who we are, our circumstances. That is a powerful spiritual practice.”
Episode 42: How to Receive, with April Boyd Ever run yourself ragged hosting a party, and yet DECLINED offers of help (while seething silently)? Or maybe you agreed to watch a friend's gaggle of unruly kids for the weekend (while your own bandwidth and energy were already non-existent), and yet declined her offer to reciprocate next weekend. You have a huge portal for giving, and a teeny pinhole for receiving.  Sound familiar? And if so, what the heck is going on there?  Today's guest, April Boyd, a psychotherapist, says not receiving can be a way of protecting yourself in relationships. After a traumatic event in her own life, April learned that receiving help - and even more, ASKING for it - was riddled with complexity. She says it's vulnerable to receive. Asking for help is even more of a challenge. And yet, declining it blocks connection. If you regularly utter, "No, it's fine, I've got this," this episode will help you get better at saying, "Thank you, that would be really great." We discuss: Why receiving feels risky How to determine if you want to receive help from this person How to ask for what you want (without getting all cringey and awkward) Noticing your auto-response to offers of support Self-Check: How often do YOU give when you don’t actually have the bandwidth? HINT: This matters! The role of shame in receiving Ready to receive more (and seethe less)? Join us! Links and Resources April Boyd on Instagram Mandy Lehto Mandy Lehto on Instagram   Review MoxieCast on iTunes Quotes by April Boyd: “One of the things that makes receiving so much harder than giving is it’s actually a really vulnerable place to be.” “We have this culture that really encourages us to wear that badge of honor of being so independent and not needing anyone, and being able to do it all. That’s a myth.” “How often do you say ‘yes’ when you really mean ‘no’?” “Recognize that the guilt is just often a built-in part of this process.”
Episode 41: How to get into your body, with Alexis Artin Ever feel like your relationship with pleasure, sensuality and the feminine is a bit of a Rubik’s cube? For years, I heard the phrase “get out of your head and into your body,” and never really understood it. I mean, duh, where else would I be? I clearly had a lot to learn… Today’s guest is Alexis Artin, owner of a globally renowned female empowerment company who’s on a mission to help women connect with their bodies. Before you do a U-turn Gents, this episode isn’t just for women. There’s some real insight here for you too… We discuss: Feminine and Masculine Energy: What’s the difference? Why should we care? Embodying the feminine: Awareness, appreciation, and experiencing feelings/senses  Practical ways to access our feminine – and what that can mean in our lives (pure goodness) Links and Resources Alexis Artin Alexis Artin on Instagram The Female Brain by Louann Brizendine Why Gender Matters by Leonard Sax Mandy Lehto Mandy Lehto on Instagram Review MoxieCast on iTunes Quotes by Alexis Artin: “I really wear so many hats in my life. My friends refer to me, jokingly, as the Forrest Gump of the Feminine.” “What are the three worst words that a man can hear from a woman? ‘We gotta talk.’” “It is inherently dangerous to be in a feminine body. Being in a feminine body, life is the ultimate resource and that’s what the feminine is, she’s the source of life.” “Feminine Experience of Life: When a woman is in that experience, it’s pleasureful, and that pleasure is magnetic.”
Episode 040: How Not to be a Jerk to Yourself How would life change if you could shift your relationship with the negative voice in your head? Submit to it less. Lighten up a little. Do what you want anyway, even if the voice threatens you with public humiliation and epic cringey-ness. Honestly, we can be such dicks to ourselves. If you're as sick of that as I am, grab your mug of something hot and hit . Suzy Reading - author, coach, and champion of all things self-care-related - is back on the show by popular demand. Listen to our popular previous episode, "Win at self-care and willpower," HERE.

Episode 39: Soulbbatical, with Shelley Paxton "Is this all there is?" Maybe you've asked yourself that question after achieving something - a promotion, a degree, a level of success - that you were convinced would fulfil you. And when you get there, it feels kinda meh, empty even. Then there's the guilt about how you're feeling, when, to the outside world, you've MADE IT, baby. It's depressing, yet alienating (I mean who'd complain at having your embarrassment of riches, hey?) So you shut up, and suck it up. That's what makes it the head screw of all head screws. Meet today's guest, Shelley Paxton, former chief marketing officer of the badass brand, Harley-Davidson. She rode choppers in some of the coolest places on the planet; had a swoon-worthy wardrobe; had people hanging on her every word. I knew her back then. She seemed like one powerful mofo, a woman with her life together. The reality? Shelley was holding on by her manicured fingernails, numbing nightly with food and a bottle of wine. She felt empty and full of self-loathing, unsure how she could go on like this. She had recurring nightmares for months. To say she was 'burnt out' was putting it mildly. “My soul was feeling neglected. It wanted to be acknowledged and loved and nurtured and fed. Instead, it was shrivelling up and dying.” In today's episode, Shelley shares how she became the Chief Soul Officer of her own life (I love that phrase!) She created the Soulbbatical, a new way of being that listened to the knowing that was trying to bubble up from within, instead of tamping it down with food and booze and pretending. Show highlights include: What is a Soulbattical? She wrote a book about it! Finding yourself doesn’t necessarily mean leaving your job Are you a Ninja of Numbing? 10 Commandments to being a Chief Soul Officer: Don’t ask for permission, give it to yourself Authenticity is truest form of rebellion Courage over comfort Impact over ego; ask for help Self-first is not selfish (self-worth trumps net worth) Release the Shackles of Should Look inward Values over validation Are you Soulccessful? Be a soul ambassador in every aspect of your life to spark a movement Grab your cuppa and join us. Your soul will thank you! Links and Resources: Soulbbatical Shelley Paxton on Instagram Shelley Paxton on Facebook Stillness Is The Key by Ryan Holiday Mandy Lehto on Instagram Review MoxieCast on iTunes Quotes by Shelley Paxton: “Soulbbatical is about creating a life that’s more authentic, more courageous, and more on purpose.” “I’m on a mission to liberate a billion souls.” “Soulbbatical is about rebelling for who we are and what we want for our best life, for our fulfillment, for our own unique path forward.”
Episode 38: How not to fear failure, with Dr Erin Baker Today's guest craves failure (not chocolate like the rest of us). Most people will run a mile to avoid failing and looking bad, lest folks point and laugh. Not Dr. Erin Baker. She's a leadership coach with a PhD in social psychology. In her previous career, Erin held senior roles at Microsoft and Facebook (READ: lots of pressure to perform and get things right). With a big brain and a stellar career, you might find yourself thinking, "Say what?" if I told you that Erin was terrified of failing. Or rather, she used to be. Instead of living in fear, Erin geeked out on it, examined it like a scientist, and came up with some fascinating conclusions that you want to know about.  If you've got bullet-proof confidence and eat fear for breakfast (with a side of spiders), this episode is NOT for you. Have a lovely day. Bye now! But if you've ever felt like a weenie, doubted yourself, or played small because you're afraid to splat, then tune in my friend. You're in for a treat. Here's a few things we play with in this episode: When you fail, do you move on, or do you chastise yourself on replay? (Remember that time you screwed up in 1977?)  How getting clear on real vs. perceived risk can be a game-changer Dreaming big (it starts with small steps) Befriending failure? Research and data make all the difference What failure actually means, depends on you (I never thought about it like that...) Join us! There's bubbly at the end!

I spent the first 33 years of my life just absolutely terrified of what it meant if I failed.” “These days, I actually crave failure.” “When we fail, we’ve just done some sort of action.” “Bubbles for everyone!” (very possibly the best quote ever)
