001: Scott Orth — On the power of mindfulness, overcoming adversity and listening to your gut
Steve Rio sits down with Scott Orth. Scott is a Mindfulness coach, teacher and speaker and the founder of Mindful Wisdom, based in Vancouver BC. They get into how adversity plays a key role in personal development, how big decisions in life often come down to a gut feeling you need to listen for, the incredible power of mindfulness in work and life, how obstacles are a gift for growth, and a number of other topics in this deep and wide ranging conversation.   For full show notes, and links to everything we mentioned in this podcast, go to natureofwork.co/podcast.  Scott’s Bio My recent career in the corporate world was focused on designing and facilitating leadership development programs. My passion is giving leaders the tools they need to succeed in their role and watching them grow.  I came to mindfulness in 2010 through a coach and mentor - Ray Williams. Through continued learning, ongoing meditation training, and exploration of the mind, I’ve come to see mindful awareness more broadly, incorporating the latest in neuroscience, behavior science, emotional intelligence, positive psychology and a range of present moment activities (everything from improv to mountain biking).  Further, my passion for this practice runs deeper than something I believe in; as the parent of an anxious child, mindfulness has enabled me to stay present, open and non-judgmental when my body is often screaming to react.  It has become critical for being my ‘best self’ parent.  Practicing mindfulness has led to improvements in how resilient, focused and yet open I am in every other aspect of my life.  As someone who recognizes that between ‘stimulus and response there is a space’ and our ability to choose in that space makes all the difference as a professional, my goal is to help 1 million leaders and busy professionals realize the many benefits of a mindfulness practice. Thus far, I’ve had the great fortune to work with the brilliant people at SAP, UBC, Covenant House Vancouver, BCIT, Urban Systems Ltd., Miller Titerle + Co. LLP, Alexander Holburn Beaudin + Lang LLP, Habanero Consulting, Smythe LLP, Schneider Electric, BC Assessment, plus numerous entrepreneurs and sole practitioners.  Testimonials can be found on the Testimonial Page.  On a more personal note, I have many roles in my life.  I am a loving husband, playful father, committed trainer and coach, enthusiastic entrepreneur, constant reader, avid mountain biker, passionate espresso maker and lover of craft-brewed IPA’s.   --  This episode is brought to you by Nature of Work, a personal operating system to help increase your performance, resilience and wellbeing and live life to it’s fullest.
