What a way to wrap up this discussion with James!! I'm telling you, it's not about big leaps, it's not about unrealistic overnight changes. It is about the details. It is about consistency. It is about having the foresight and patience to plan, while at the same time being opportunistic and willing to adapt as you go. CHANGE YOUR TRAJECTORY is a real passion of mine, and I love having James Ricks on to kick off the Series. You have to appreciate his story and the years it has taken to build up to where he is now. Spoiler alert, he has just moved his family to Hawaii where he now runs his business. Dig into to this 3-part discussion with me and James, there is a load of value here.

As we open up the CHANGE YOUR TRAJECTORY series, I am thrilled to have James Ricks on the Katalyst Podcast. James and I connected on LinkedIn in March of this year and by the time we recorded this, James' world was uncertain and for that matter everyone's world was uncertain. The COVID-19 pandemic was starting to take effect in the U.S. and as a result the Ricks family was delaying their relocation plans.  It's a great story and James is a great guest. You should expect to be challenged in the way you think about your life, your career, your family, your goals and your growth. I admire the patience that James has displayed in what I understand of his story. I truly hope you enjoy and connect with his story here in this series.  Visit James on LinkedIn James' company: www.consultinglaunchpad.com Visit Katalyst on LinkedIn BE YOU! BE CONFIDENT!

S2:E12 INFLUENCE with Robert Sieger | Part 3
INFLUENCE Series final episode: Robert and I continue in this third segment with more nuances about how he effectively manages his team and has evolved in his career as a leader. Particularly with a focus on being a heart-led leader, with an emphasis on gratitude and support for your team. Honestly, it was hard for me as the interviewer in this segment not to keep the conversation going and going. We had a time commitment and of course you have to manage the length of the podcast, so there are a couple things in particular that I was extremely tempted to dive further into. The point I am trying to make is that Robert's diverse background, his authentic heart for leading with others in mind first, and his positive energy are a wealth of experience and perspective that I thoroughly enjoyed hearing and learning from.

Again, this is applicable for leaders and managers at all levels, Human Resources professionals and anyone in talent management. I am super excited to share this discussion with you.

S1:E3 A CALL TO ACTION with Adam Poe | Part 3
Capping off this 3-part series to launch KATALYST, Adam and I are discussing Branding and Agency Development. Adam drops some fantastic one-liners in this last segment of our discussion so have a notepad handy! I am thankful for Adam and I admire the work that he has done to position himself and his team in a healthy growth mindset. It takes strategy, awareness, and hard work among other things to operate a small business, and one of the things that I loved most about this conversation is how much I can relate to the things that he mentioned even though I have zero experience in an insurance agency or in running a service business team. Thank you for joining me in this journey. My only requests of you are that you let me know what value you are getting out of the shows and please share the word with your co-workers and friends!!
