Grow or Die

Grow or Die

By Alora & Lawrence
Leadership and business coaches Lawrence Henderson and Alora Chistiakoff chat over a weekly Coaching Mystery Box topic relating to professional development, career management and leadership. With Lawrence's background in the military and corporate L&D, and Alora's background in entrepreneurial tech and startups, we come at everything from two different perspectives, but with a common value: action, not excuses! Join the conversation every week on Wednesdays at 4:00 ET on Zoom (see link below).

Tips for Managers: A Newly Remote Team Thanks to Covid-19
Working from home can sound like a great option, but for some of us, learning to do it can be a struggle. And in the wake of the 'work from home' mandates thanks to Covid-19, many managers are struggling to suddenly figure out how to manage a team remotely when they've only ever done it in person. This is a potentially huge topic with a sometimes tricky learning curve, but in this video I start with 5 Basic Steps you can take, as a manager, to help your team with this sudden change in your working model.

Self-Awareness
There are two sides to self-awareness: how well we understand ourselves, and how accurately we understand how other people see us. Both are hard, both are critical for your professional development, and both are more rare than you might think.

Boundaries and Resentment
Last week's chat about shame and all we've learned from Brene Brown's work inspired this week's topic: boundaries and resentment, how we enter an organization and show up in relationships -- both at work and at home.

Navigating Shame
Welcome to Grow or Die, a weekly show with Lawrence Henderson and Alora Chistiakoff, both business and leadership coaches dedicated to taking on tough topics for growth-oriented professionals. In our first episode, we set the stage: each week one of us will pick a topic to toss out to the other one, and see what kind of great conversation we can have.  We lovingly refer to this as our Coaching Mystery Box.  In week #1, we get things started with the all-too-relateable topic that has made us all love the work of Brene Brown: shame. We record each episode with a live audience, and welcome participants to join us in real time and raise questions and join the discussion.
