E65: “Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it"
On this episode we talk about challenges we face on our journey to success and how we view those challenges will detemine whether we rise or fall to the occasion. “Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it” - Winston Churchill. On our Empoweremnt Jouney to SUCCESS there are many challenges we will face. And just like a kite that rises higher with the WIND we are reminded not to resent challenges or opposition. Instead, view it as something that will test and challenge us.

E50 - One extra degree...NO Secrets to Success
On this episode we talk about the importance that one extra degree can make, one extra effort is all that is required for us to reach greatness. Thomas Edison said that "Many of life’s failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." How close are you to your goal? Takeaway here is not to give up but to focus you and your team on that one extra degree.  On their book 212°: the Extra Degree. Sam Parker and Mac Anderson they write about the fact that: Raising the temperature of water by one extra degree means the difference between something that is simply very hot and something that generates enough force to power a machine—a beautiful, uncomplicated metaphor that ideally should feed every endeavor—consistently pushing us to make the extra effort in every task we undertake…. It reminds us that seemingly small things can make tremendous differences. The key lesson from this episode is that it doesn’t take that much extra effort to win first place, just one extra degree can take the water from being hot to boiling which will generate steam that can move locomotives.  How will you apply this idea to this upcoming week...would love to hear your feedback.  Be 212 degrees on all you do!!!

E43 - "You are on Mute" Awareness and Communication lessons from 2020.
Often times we get to talking and assume that our audience is mesmerized by what comes out of our mouth. We just keep talking and talking and completely ignore the reception of the message from the audience. How nice would it be if there were signals that would allow the speaker to stop and realize that they are disconnected with their audience? I ran this exercise on a Virtual Workshop that I conducted about Effective Communication. Half way through my speech I muted myself on purpose and continued to speak. In a matter of 2 seconds, everyone started saying “you are on mute” and signaling with their hands that they could not hear me. I told the audience that I was thankful that they gave me the signal and allowed me to reconnect with them with my message. However, often times as we communicate, we are not as lucky in receiving these signals. That means that as speakers we go through the illusion of communicating and are not aware of how well the message is received. Pausing, asking questions, engaging your audience, looking at their body language and facial expressions are some signals that as speakers we can look for as we communicate.  These signals will tell us whether “We are on Mute” and have lost the interest of the listeners. The ability to Mute/BAN distractions in a CONFERENCE CALL and in your LIFE. We have all been in conference calls where someone was oblivious to the speaker and their noise, distractions, or side conversations interrupted your message. This happened even after you kindly reminded everyone to please be on Mute at the beginning of the presentation unless they were speaking. You can tell how that distraction can mess up your flow, get your off track on what you were trying to accomplish. As a host YOU have a CHOICE, You can remind them to please be on mute, and if that does not work you can quickly mute them so that they cannot bother you and the rest of the audience, and if that does not work then you can KICK THEM OUT of the meeting, because you are the HOST. Now, let’s apply this to our own lives. How many times do we get distracted by things or people that throws us off track? The lesson for all of us here is that as HOSTS of our own lives, we have a CHOICE, we can allow these distractions to be part of our lives and continue be off track, or we can MUTE/BAN them and shift our focus back to our purpose. The choice is ours. As you embark on your 2021 Journey, remember to intentionally look out for signals so you can better connect with your audience, and EMPOWER yourself, as the HOST of your Life, by Muting/Banning distractions from your day to day life and EMPOWER YOU to Success.

E40 - I have to vs. I get to (The power of Attitude)
On this episode we talk about the power of attitude, specifically about choosing how view our daily tasks.  When we use the words  - I have to go to work... - I have to go to the gym... - I have to go to school...  etc. we are associating this with an obigation and mentally this becomes a chore for us. I was recently reminded of this when I was speaking to a friend of mine that ws laid off since april due to the pandemic and was having a hard time getting a job. As we were conversing I mentioned that I had to go back to work. My friend reminded me in a humbling way that I was lucky that I had the opportunity to go to work. At this moment I was reminded of the choice and the power of attitude that a mentor of mine had shared with me years back. He would go as far as correct us when we would say that we have to do this and have to do that...he would constantly say that we get to... we don't have to. So on this 40th Episode the challenge for us is to turn our obligations into opportunities by choosing our attitude.  Enjoy this episode and remember to Learn Grow and Influence.  Denis

E39 - "Why Leadership Coaching Does Not Work?" - Martin Harshberger
On ths episode Marting Harshberger,  talks about how Leadership Coaching is a two way street and walks us though some strategies of what leaders and comapnies can do to ensure embrace change.  About Martin: Martin's humble journey of entrepreneurship began right after he reached the highest peak in his corporate career. He became General Manager for an international, multi-million-dollar organization.  In reality, he acted as a Vice President, but he couldn't officially receive this title because he never finished college. At the Control Data Corporation, Martin interacted with senior executives at hundreds of companies. He felt he was ready to leave and start his own company.  He founded Logistics Management Inc. with 800K cash investment by two investment groups. They subsequently guaranteed bank loans of an additional $2M.  Martin grew the company to over $50M in the U.S. and Europe and had five separate offers to buy it at a minimum of 12 times the investor's cash investment. They made the Inc. 500 as one of America's fastest-growing companies. When it became clear the Board was not interested in selling the business at any price, Martin cashed out in 2000. He knew that technology changes would eventually make their services less profitable, and a sale was their best option. Martin invested his time in a second venture financed by friends. They started with 1M in sales and got it to 8M in 5 years. They sold the company to a large organization. Next, martin decided to launch his consulting business. Martin started consulting at 58. He moved from Memphis to Tupelo, MS, 90 miles away from his previous home, but 25 years back in time. A nice community, low crime, low traffic, just what he needed. He bought a house on a golf course and was going to slow down.  Martin had a health issue in 2005, kidney cancer. He had surgery, and all is ok now, but Martin began to think about how he wanted to spend the rest of his life. He took a few months off and really got bored. His wife was still working and was going to be for at least five more years. So, Martin was looking for something productive to do part-time.

E38 - "How to play with your INNER CRITIC" - Jeff Harry
Welcome to our 38th episode. What a treat we have in place for you today. This episode features our Special Guest Jeff Harry.  On this episode Jeff introduces to us the concept of play, specifically how to play with your inner critic. Jeff's  work is about challenging the current power structures in order to create a more equitable work environment and he does this through experiential play, where you build empathy for one other by putting yourself in someone else's shoes. Jeff Harry shows individuals and companies how to tap into their true selves, to feel their happiest and most fulfilled — all by playing. Jeff has worked with Google, Microsoft, Southwest Airlines, Adobe, the NFL, Amazon, and Facebook, helping their staff to infuse more play into the day-to-day. Jeff is an international speaker who has presented at conferences such as INBOUND, SXSW, and Australia’s Pausefest, showing audiences how major issues in the workplace can be solved using play.  Jeff was selected by BambooHR & Engagedly as one of the Top 100 HR Influencers of 2020 for his organizational development work around dealing with toxic people in the workplace. His play work has most recently been featured in the NY Times article: How Do We Add More Play To Our Grown-Up Life - Even Now: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/14/smarter-living/adults-play-work-life-balance.html. He has also been featured on AJ+, SoulPancake, the SF Chronicle, and CNN.  While we spend most of our time pretending to be important, serious grownups, it's when we let go of that facade and just play, that the real magic happens.

E28 - Lessons from a marathon on Goals and Complacency.
I had set a goal for myself in 2016 to complete a marathon. Not being a runner, the idea of running 26.2 miles truly scared me, however I had made up my mind and signed up for it and there was no going back at this point. Below you will find some key takeaways that can be applied to any goal that you might have as I breakdown the journey of #goalsetting, #goalachievement and #complacency. 1.Set a goal and commit The idea of wanting to run a marathon had been on my mind for a while and every year I kept talking about but did not commit to taking action. I had done research, had narrowed it down to three marathons, had the dates but never took that leap of faith to sign up for it, because my reasons for not being able to do it muffled that voice inside me that wanted to do it. In January of 2016, I finally made the commitment and signed up for the Via Marathon, in Lehigh Valley, PA that was to take place on September 11th, 2016.

Empowered to Success: Session 7 - S Shine bright and share your S.U.C.C.E.S.S with others
Although everyday life as we know it, can be challenging and overwhelming, we have the resources and the tools to live an empowered life. An existence of empowerment allows us to make progress toward and eventually achieve all your goals and dreams. Define who you are. Understand what Success means to you and write that down. Do not let the environment around you, your current circumstances define your future, instead use that as spring board to propel yourself towards your dreams and your goals. I grew up in a former communist country, and even though only 7 years old when the system fell, I can still recall what it meant to have no voice, where even your thoughts and dreams were “controlled” by the government. When the system fell, and people started fleeing to the neighboring countries, I recall vividly what my dream was, I wanted to become an Immigrant. Just like everyone around me, right after 8th grade, I wanted to go and work in Greece and Italy and bring money home to support my family. I recall my mother saying “Only if I am dead will you get to do that, you will go to school and get and education”. I was blessed to have had a loving family who supported and always challenged me. My parents would go to spend most of their salary so that my brother and I would learn English. I recall them saying– “One day you will be able to use it, as English is the language of the world”. I guess my parents were right, both my brother and I had the opportunity to come to the United States and get an education and create our families. I also got to live my dream by Becoming an Immigrant. We would not be able to be here today without the help of some very special people, to whom we will be forever grateful. I truly hope that you have enjoyed reading this and wish you the best on your journey as you chase YOUR dream. Remember that this is A way of empowering yourself to success,

Empowered to Success: Session 6 - S Seek Mentorship, Be Willing to Work Hard, Be Teachable
On this episode we will walk you through the 6th Step of s.u.c.c.e.S.s and share with you some tips and strategies that can help ypu along on your journey.  Begin working harder by:  1. Show dedication in all you do. Develop a can do attitude and always look for problems as opportunities that you can learn from.  2. Take care of your health. If you want to put your heart and soul into your work, it’s important to be well-rested and abide to a healthy lifestyle. The more energy you have, the more effort you can expend to get your job done well.  3. Become intimate with your finances. If you don’t follow a budget, now is the time to create and follow one. Understand where your money is coming and going and immediately put a plan in place to pay off your debt. Reach out to a financial coach that can help guide you if needed.  4. Competing with yourself. Be the best version of yourself. Develop habits and practices that will challenge you to be a bit better each day.  5. Develop an attitude of gratitude all day every day. Many of us may have complaints about what we do in a day. But it’s wise to recognize that while we’re complaining, we’re losing  our momentum with work.   Seek Mentorship and always be learning. Be respectful and mindful of your time with your mentor. Have questions ready for each time you meet and actions that you took based on the advice given. What worked well, what went wrong, and what would you do different.  “I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it” ~Pablo Picasso Book a complimentary coaching session to start YOUR journey to SUCCESS...

Empowered to Success: Session 5 - E Evaluate, Adjust and Take Action: Go after what you want!
On the is Episosde of our s.u.c.c.E.s.s jpunrey we share withg ayou some tips on creating a a step-by-step process for how to reach your desired life.  Refer to your S.M.A.R.T approach mentioned earlier. If you think concretely about what you’re required to accomplish on the road to the end result, it will lead you toward your goal. Check off the steps as you achieve them.  Evaluate. Keeping with the example of wanting to move to New York City, what must you do first to eventually get there? Maybe your step one is researching the industry available there to determine if your job skills will transfer. Find out what they have to offer. In today’s world, you can access information about anything in a matter of seconds from the comfort of your home. Live there before you live there.  Adjust. After you shift gears and institute some of the changes, you may notice some other minor things you could do to be headed more directly toward your goal. Go ahead and make the adjustments without holding back, again it is important that you evaluate,  adjust your plan and take action. If you notice that the plan that you are following is not getting you close to your goal or dream, change your plan not your dream. Taking action to achieve your dreams will bring feelings of strength and incredible anticipation. Imagine how it will feel to know that you’ve taken the bull by the horns and are heading toward the greatest adventure of your life.  Living the life you want is the ultimate objective of selfempowerment. The true gift comes when those around you feel inspired to take action because of your journey of who you are becoming as you are learning and growing.  “Take a step back, evaluate what is important and enjoy life” ~Teri Garr  Book a compliementary coaching session to get started on your journey to Success.

As a culture enthusiast, I have travelled to 37 countries and counting, both personally and professionally. I get asked this question a lot - How did I progress in my career so quickly?

Empowered to Success : Begin with the end in mind
Begin with the end in mind- is an expert from Franklin Covey's 7 habit's of highly effective people.  "Habit 2 is based on imagination--the ability to envision in your mind what you cannot at present see with your eyes. It is based on the principle that all things are created twice. There is a mental (first) creation, and a physical (second) creation. The physical creation follows the mental, just as a building follows a blueprint. If you don't make a conscious effort to visualize who you are and what you want in life, then you empower other people and circumstances to shape you and your life by default. It's about connecting again with your own uniqueness and then defining the personal, moral, and ethical guidelines within which you can most happily express and fulfill yourself." source: https://www.franklincovey.com/the-7-habits/habit-2.html How are you coping with the current situation? Are you envisioning your goals and your dreams or does the current situation have you stuck?

Empowered to Success : Do not underestimate the power of INFLUENCE
On this episode we talk about Influence and how we all have the ability to influence others. We influence people at work, home, school, everyhwere when we interact with others. Understanding its impact is crucial, as what we say, or how we behave has a great impact on others.  Takeaway for the listeners : On this journey of Empowering yourself to SUCCESS -  here is your weekly challenge.  1. Identify who and what Influences you and ask whether the results that you are getting are negative or positive.  Adjust accordingly. 2. Who do you influence? - Is  your influence towards others negative or positive. Adjust accordingly.  Be selective about your external influences. Your multi-dimensional brain is influenced by everything you see, hear, read, smell, touch, feel or say. – Brian Tracy in·flu·ence /ˈinflo͝oəns/ noun the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself.
