#10 The kryptonite to your calling
#10 The kryptonite to your calling
Did you know your past experience impacts your response to future opportunities? While "trauma" may sound like a far fetched idea, or maybe someone else's problem, you may be surprised to know that impactful negative experiences and yes, trauma, affect much if not most of society (that includes me, and that might also include you). Today, I'll cover key insights from Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk's best-selling book, The Body Keeps the Score. Learn how "the greatest source of our suffering are the lies we tell ourselves" (quote from Dr. Van Der Kolk's book), how these life challenges affect us well into our adulthood, how they can keep you from your calling and purpose, and of course, small actionable steps you can take to overcome the impact and move in freedom & into your calling.

#6 Three ways to answer "Tell me about yourself"
#6 Three ways to answer "Tell me about yourself"
There is an underutilized opportunity in the response to your the "Tell me about yourself" question. Learn to use your response to this first interview question to set the tone for the rest of the interview, connect with your hiring committee, and lead the conversation towards your strategic position as a top candidate. In this podcast we cover two myths we believe about the "tell me about yourself" response, three strategies to help you stand out from other candidates, and the one way you should always end your response. I'll also share a little encouragement on getting rid of interview jitters by refocusing your attention away from yourself and onto serving your hiring committee.
