"Feedback is one of your best tools to meet your goals. Whether in business, leadership, or your personal life.
Skillfully used, feedback becomes as an inexpensive and highly effective way to invest in your people. It drives engagement, strong team retention, and constant growth.
When it’s handled poorly, feedback becomes your biggest danger. Emotions run high. People take everything personally. Nothing gets done. What was meant to be a source of improvement and engagement is now is a source of tension, frustration and often anxiety. The future belongs to coach-like managers, who focus on people development."
These are the words of today's guest, Raf Baron "The F-word Coach".
In our conversation, we covered topics like Servant leadership,
Self-awareness (also in relationship with children), how to catch yourself and control yourself from exploding (by observing the patterns your body sends before it happens),
lack of sleep and its effects, patience, the importance of explaining vs “do it because I said so” – from childhood to management.

He's a co-host of LinkedIn Local, co-origintor of #ONO, originator of #ProfilePopUp (free LinkedIn profile review videos) and posts value-add content daily on LinkedIn.
Jared got his start with an IT programming degree. Yet he was never the type to just code in a cubicle. He was always asking WHY. This started at a young age with a fascination with personal development. (NOTE: If he had to pick 3 people he tries to model it would be Stephen R. Covey, Tony Robbins and Maya Angelou!)
This led to Jared becoming an IT Business Analyst where he had to find out what the business wanted (WHY), translate it (WHAT) and ensure it got implemented (HOW). Today, Jared uses those same skills to help job seekers attract recruiters, help businesses find and turn leads into prospects, and help individuals and groups maximize LinkedIn.
He posts often on LinkedIn with hashtags of #ProfilesThatPop, #TipsThatPOP, #ResumesThatPOP and ThoughtsThatPOP.
Follow those hashtags and him at https://www.linkedin.com/in/profiles-that-pop/ and engage to see his content. You can also learn more by checking out his website - https://profilesthatpop.com.

Throughout my adventure on LinkedIn, I've been blessed to meet tons of amazing people. And one of them is the lovely and extremely #beautifulwoman Jacqueline Way.
After watching her TedX talk ("How to create happiness in your life every day" - https://youtu.be/dwmKJ8-EQL8) and seeing a video on the aforementioned platform, I told myself I can't let such opportunity slip through my fingers. So I invited Jacqueline in the show.
My guest has dedicated herself to social good projects, both personally and professionally, for over two decades. In 2010 she started a parenting project (called #365give) with her oldest son (3 years old by then). The concept was to give back to the world every day, for one year. But this adventure amplified in such a manner that today it's implemented in education institutions, with the support of educators. The program is an educational tool for teachers, powered by students, from kindergarten stage to 12th grade. The program assists in achieving Curriculum, Core Competency and Social Emotional Learning goals set out by the BC Ministry of Education through daily giving activities. It allows students to develop the necessary intellectual, personal, social, and emotional proficiencies, in order to engage in deep and life-long learning.
I am happy to say that this year I decided to get involved with the #365give challenge, on 17th of May, by teaching my own children what giving looks like.
You can follow/ contact Jacqueline by accessing these links: https://www.365give.ca,

In today's episode, Rahila and I speak about chapter 7 ("Arian, Joaquim and Artema") of my book - "The Man, the Moon and the Casquette".
Artema has been raised in the same orphanage as Joaquim and she is currently working at Rada's restaurant. One day Artema is caught red-handed while she was trying to steal from the owner. Nonetheless, the story goes way beyond the surface, as we learn the reason why the woman attempted theft. Rada's approach towards the situation is way different than what some regular person would adopt.
Before addressing today's question to my guest, I read a short excerpt from the chapter, so that you can get immersed into the story and learn the circumstances.

Shane Wallace is the CEO of WorkApp, a platform that allows everyone to advertise for FREE. In the name of transparency, I will tell you that the first challenge was to actually have Shane accepting to re-record this episode. And the reason behind this was the fact that I wanted to give you, the listeners, a different perspective on who Shane Wallace is. In the first place, we had a normal, serious conversation, but I wanted to break the pattern for a short while. So, despite the support that I like to offer to this project, in this episode my challenge goes exactly towards the flispside. We had a lot of fun while recording this episode, so I hope you will have fun as you listen to our conversation too. If you do, please leave us a review on iTunes and share it with everyone you know.

In college, Darrel grew a strong passion for mentoring, while obtaining his bachelor’s in business from The College of New Jersey.
A year after graduation, he worked at a Fortune 500 company, yet after 2 years he felt unfulfilled and developed a strong urge to continue serving others.
His passions for problem solving, mentoring, and entrepreneurship led him to officially begin his entrepreneurial journey with the departure from his job in June of 2018. He is confident that a shift toward social entrepreneurship will make this world a better place for every member of humanity.

In part 1 of this episode we bring insights from chapter 3, which presents us with the fact that Dom has been abandoned by his father when the boy was 12 and ever since he grew up into an orphanage.
In part 2 of the episode, we take a question from a reader and provide a reply. Feel free to send us questions by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving us a voice message (if you listen via Anchor), as we would love to answer in future episodes.
The reader pointed out something really interesting: the fact that, in this chapter Rada takes over the governance of the orphanage, but maybe against her will. Meaning that Dom never asked her what her dreams were in regards to her future, but neither did Rada see his legacy as a burden. On the contrary, she didn't question his decision to pass her his legacy.

Rob Deptford is a special person to whom I fully resonate, due to the personality type that binds us: we are both being "labeled" as introverts. He is currently dedicating his time to advise people how to land the job they desire, by adjusting their resumes. I have taken his resume writing course out of curiosity and I must say that I wholeheartedly recommend it.
Find out how an introvert manages to overcome his stage fear and how he chooses to make an impact on the world around him.

Arian's Wake-up call
Arian's life goes like this for too many years, without having the strength to speak up for himself and his right to be heard and to live in a peaceful home. The day he turns 35, however, he realizes - under no extraordinary circumstances - that he is more than that and he inwardly expresses his determined willingness to understand and to discover more about who he really is and about his purpose on earth. In his way, he meets Rada...

Kids are being exposed to fairy tales which, of course, are the magic of childhood. Nevertheless, some of these tales have turned into economic gains for kids, due to how the messages are spread around. Anyhow, we - as parents - need to cope and comfort out kids when fairy tales turn out differently.
In this episode I recount how I shamelessly forgot to play Tooth Fairy for my elder child (2 times in a row !!!) and I have a question for you all: How do you teach kids NOT TO BEAT THEMSELVES UP for the mistakes of others?
I am grateful for your engagement with this episode and for leaving me a voice message (if you listen via Anchor) / sending me an e-mail to email@example.com.

In today's episode, we discuss chapter 01, the summary of which you can find below.
The first chapter, called "A simple man", presents the main character's family history and actual environment. Arian's parents love glamour, as they consider themselves superior to others and fully entitled to be adored. Therefore, they throw loud parties until late at night. At the same time, as a guiding characteristic of their existence, they stick to the syntax "it has always been this way".
Additionally, from early ages of Arian's existence, the parents find out about Arian's brain exceptional capacities and that makes them despise their child.
Due to all the above mentioned aspects, the parents would do anything to put their child down, making him feel miserable, unwanted and unloved. As a consequence, Arian grows up with a strong feeling of unworthiness, carrying a serious lack of self-esteem into adulthood.
