Episode 122 - Truly Hue-Man Conversation by HumansFirst - Cordelia Gaffer, Heather Younger & Brooke Erol
The weekly #HumansFirst open and inclusive calls can all be found here -> https://humansfirst.club/events Find the Aequip team at https://www.aequip.co.uk/ Today Mike Vacanti hosts a stunning hue-man conversation with Heather Younger, Brooke Erol and Cordelia Gaffer. Bios: Brooke O. Erol started her career at IBM following the traditional path she was given to be "successful". She quit her "great job" on paper after 11 years, feeling she is not aligned with it. She started her journey to find her purpose in life. She started her first business in 2003 YourBestLife to help professionals who don’t like their jobs and want to find more meaning at work. After being around so many unhappy people at work as her clients, she decided to help the organizations and leaders who employed them. She started her second business Purposeful Business to help leaders catch up with our times and grow their businesses without sacrificing the well-being of their people; where profit becomes a by-product rather than the main goal . She believes life is too precious to live only for weekends and retirement.She is the author of Create a Life You Love. She is also the co-author of "From Hierarchy to High Performance: Unleashing the Hidden Superpowers of Ordinary People to Realize Extraordinary Results" that became an International Best Seller in 2018. She speaks and writes about Leadership, Purpose-Driven Life and Organizations, Future of Work in the US and abroad. Hi I'm Cordelia Gaffar, the Emotions Opener Transformation Strategist helping female change makers and entrepreneurs with leaning into difficult emotions so you can show up powerfully! The process to transform your heart so that you can transform your mind is called Replenish Me. It is a complete system of self-nurturing built on nutritional, fitness, scientific and spiritual practices. The steps are Release, Restructure, Refresh and Rebirth 1. Release is Self-compassion and self-forgiveness 2. Restructure is being discipline with habits that support you physically and mentally 3. Refresh is creating firm boundaries and discipline in all your relationships 4. Rebirth is embodying all of it and radiating and attracting what you desire in your life Heather Younger was born to advocate and communicate on behalf of others. I realized early on that many dreams and desires never happen unless we are courageous enough to ask for them consistently and in a compelling way. I also know that some people never have the opportunity to share their voice and are just never invited to have a seat at the decision-making table. I was that person growing up as a kid in a family who shunned me because of my race. My mission is to help organizations give their employees what they want so that those same organizations get what they want in the form of engagement and retention. It has been my experience that organizations are more apt to make poor assumptions about what their employees want. They are screaming to be heard, cared for and want to have a say in what happens to them.

When we see ourselves as more important than others, we see others as objects. An outward mindset is when we see others being as important as ourselves” – 23.35 “Where is the focus when we have the desires to look good, be right, avoid problems and get ahead? On ourselves. If we are a leader and we are incentivised to look good, be right, avoid problems and get ahead, where are we focused as a leader, on the person we should be least focused on as a leader” – 31.00 Ryan can be contacted via the following means: LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/ryangottfredson/ Web - www.ryangottfredson.com Bio: Ryan Gottfredson, Ph.D. is a cutting-edge mindset author, researcher, and consultant.

Episode 119 - Truly Hue-Man Conversation by HumansFirst - Tanya Obeng, Brian Kelly, Rishita Jones & Kate Griffiths
The weekly #HumansFirst open and inclusive calls can all be found here -> https://humansfirst.club/events Find the Aequip team at https://www.aequip.co.uk/ We are pleased to share the second of our truly hue-man conversations which included Brian Kelly, Rishita Jones, Kate Griffiths and Tanya Obeng in conversation as we had a wide-ranging conversation taking in race, leadership, education,  self-leadership and so much more. The reason that Tanya, Brian, Rihsita, and Kate took part in this conversation was: - “Seeing colour, seeing diversity. Too often people say that they don’t see colour and I know it is meant on a human level, but it is really about connecting with people, seeing people’s differences, appreciating peoples differences and connecting with people on a soul level   and appreciating them for who they are” -  02.00 Tanya - “I am excited about the opportunity to expand my perspective, to help us all expand our perspectives, to listen and learn from one another, so that we can come at creating change and taking purposeful action together, from a different place” - 02.55 Brian - “I feel that up until now people have either been active when it comes to racism and D&I or they have been neutral. I want us to move from neutral to a more active stance. I’d like us to understand our own lens, our own frame of reference which shapes our thinking, our beliefs and our actions and I want to go deeper than that as we are all human beings with passions, dreams and desires. We all want to be heard, seen & felt” – 04.00 Rishita - “On the back of a HumansFirst call, I love those calls, but I recognised that my soul was yearning for deeper connection which isn’t as easy to obtain when there are 40 or 50 or 60 people in a call so this really seemed to be heaven sent and when we are processing such complex set of emotions such as shame and all those other things that have come up recently, the way to heal is through more intimate gatherings where we can be ourselves and be open to learn” – 05.20 Kate You can contact each of our guests as follows: Rishita -> https://www.linkedin.com/in/rishita-jones-mcipd/ Kate -> https://www.linkedin.com/in/wholeself/ Tanya -> https://www.linkedin.com/in/tanya-obeng27/ Brian -> https://www.linkedin.com/in/briankellyleadershipcoaching/ You can contact me via the following means: Email – garry@garryturner.life Vimeo - https://vimeo.com/414211396 LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/garryinterpersonalcatalyst/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/GarryIPCatalyst Mike can be found via the following means: Email - mike@mjvacanti.com LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mjvacanti/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/MJVacanti Web - https://humansfirst.club/

How do we remove the layers of life to get back to who we have always been” – 14.35 - “I get curious about what we are not hearing rather than what we are” – 25.50 - “What if we are all perfectly abnormal?” – 34.35  Brian can be contacted via the following means: LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/briankellyleadershipcoaching/ Web - https://briankellyleadershipcoaching.com/  You can contact me via the following means: Email – garry@garryturner.life Vimeo - https://vimeo.com/414211396 LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/garryinterpersonalcatalyst/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/GarryIPCatalyst Mike can be found via the following means: Email - mike@mjvacanti.com LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mjvacanti/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/MJVacanti Web - https://humansfirst.club/

Episode 117 - A Truly Hue-Man Conversation with Raphael David, Consultant for law enforcement agencies, tactical training & ethical leadership & Dawna Jones, author, speaker & systems expert
The weekly #HumansFirst open and inclusive calls can all be found here -> https://humansfirst.club/events Find the Aequip team at https://www.aequip.co.uk/ This was the first recorded truly hue-man conversation that has been created by myself and HumansFirst founder Mike Vacanti as we seek to develop regular, sustainable conversations around intentional inclusion by design, especially around systemic challenges such as that around race. - “What bothers me a lot is that I hear, in business in particular, ‘we are rational decision makers.’ If that were the case, there would be no need for diversity quotas, no need for quotas around women, none of that stuff would exist. Let’s get real, get honest and get truthful into what are we really doing to insert bias into our decision-making and how can we collectively design things better so we remove it” - 04.45 Dawna - “Inherent in coping with complexity is the requirement for diversity, diversity of perspectives, diversity of world view at a global level, and putting all the pixels of the picture into the environment” – 06.50 Dawna - “Recognise that we need everybody’s views together, divergent as they are, so we can converge on something that benefits everyone including the life support systems that we require to survive” – 07.20 Dawna - “America is forced with a situation right now that even when you have rules, if there is no way to enforce them, individuals will do what is expedient. I think without teeth, almost nothing matters when you put in writing as there will be other individuals that will not adhere” – 08.30 Raphael - “I am hesitant to say this but all of my younger relatives are taught to have a one button push to get video & audio on their phone right away, it is just what we do” 15.35 Raphael - “It never dawned on anyone that I would be doing anything but sexually assaulting this woman in the middle of a mall, at lunchtime. That is not uncommon to me.  - Raphael - “What’s worse is that I have interviewed people and when my supervisors found out that I interviewed them, they would literally call that person and say “did he attempt to touch you?” and the person would go “no, why?” and I had to sit there and listen to those types of conversation. Dehumanisation really does not describe the feeling it really doesn’t” - 19.35 Raphael Raphael can be contacted via his email at raphael.david09@gmail.com Dawna can be contacted via her website at http://www.frominsighttoaction.com/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/dawnahjones/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/EPDawna_Jones You can contact me via the following means: Email – garry@garryturner.life Vimeo - https://vimeo.com/414211396 LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/garryinterpersonalcatalyst/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/GarryIPCatalyst Mike can be found via the following means: Email - mike@mjvacanti.com LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mjvacanti/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/MJVacanti Web - https://humansfirst.club/

What if you just get the right people in the room and start from the beginning” – 28.00  Deborah Deborah and Rhys can be contacted via the following means: Deborah  - https://www.linkedin.com/in/theleadershiptrainer/ Rhys - https://www.linkedin.com/in/rhysthomastruself/ Deorah bio: Leadership facilitator and Champion for High-Performing Cultures My vision in life is to serve others by empowering them to step into action and transform the way they show up for the benefit of themselves and others. My passion to serve others stems from my two fundamental values: Growth and Connectedness. I honour these by accompanying others on their (learning) journey and helping them connect their dots. Yet no-one operates in a bubble. Like someone said to me once: Workplace culture is to people what water is to fish. Not long ago, I was a very hard-working and dedicated fish in a polluted organisational culture… Until I hit burnout: I was showing the very symptoms that I would speak about at my workshops, to enable leaders to recognize how toxic leadership and managerial styles can impact their people. Until Burnout is seen as a key organisational concern and a leadership responsibility, high-performing cultures will remain scarce in our Western culture. Rhys bio: I help Leaders and Business Owners reconnect with their truSELF to realise their true potential and optimise their teams performance through the principles of Conscious Leadership; Connection, Cultivation, Communication, Curiosity, Caring, Co-Creation and Community. Utilising EQ, SQ and Mindset we can work together to actualise your truSELF. By creating the right environment with incisive questioning, generative attention and the principles of deep listening we can identify and transform those limiting self-beliefs in to liberating ones and empower you with self-worth and self-awareness. Learning to focus on the present moment and to always lead with your heart by putting kindness, compassion and gratitude at the forefront of everything you do lifts you and those around you. By committing to a practice of daily personal development, becoming aligned with your core values, unlocking your superpowers and learning to always take intentional action, you will soon be achieving your true purpose! That is when you are one with your truSELF.  You can contact me via the following means: Email – garry@garryturner.life Vimeo - https://vimeo.com/414211396 LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/garryinterpersonalcatalyst/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/GarryIPCatalyst Mike can be found via the following means: Email - mike@mjvacanti.com LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mjvacanti/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/MJVacanti Web - https://humansfirst.club/

I am actually feeling really positive about the future as we were in desperate need of some kind of shock, some kind of jolt. It is a pandemic pause and we need pandemic patience and passion. I know that the world can be a better place than it was” - “The challenge I believe (as we emerge post-crisis) is that we all have a different view of what that might be, and that is what we have to explore” - “You are not leading to control; you are leading to manage the music. There is a give and take, a questioning listening and questioning and contribution” - “As soon as I started thinking I will go wrong I went wrong” - “One of my dreams is to ask different groups ‘what is your imagined magic-wand future with no conditions to now or the past?’” – 39.10 Pauline can be contacted via the following means: LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/paulinecrawford/ www.genderdynamicsdna.com www.missmagicalconversations.com www.corporateheartinternational.com Bio: International Best-Selling Author, Speaker, Changemaker, Gender Dynamics Expert, Certified Image Consultant, Magical Conversation Host and Performance Coach, PhD in Entreprenology (Research on Wellness Cultures UK 2003/5) With 30-year entrepreneur history, Pauline is known as The Ambassador of Magical Conversations as she adventured across UK/Europe, Asia Pacific, and USA, fulfilling her purpose to enable male and female leaders to co-create profitable, value-creation, people-centric collaborative cultures.

They will ask do you care about your work more than you care about us?“ – 19.15 - “There are two parts to that. Initially, being able to get guys to drop their shield early on in the first couple of conversations is the toughest part. Later on, there is another realisation, that’s almost the spiritual realisation. The first is more logical, the second is more spiritual. They are more than a bag of skin and bones; they are a source of energy” – 34.20 - “The topic of power is so misconstrued; power is not a bad word. It is not about control, it is about being that source of energy that they (men) need to live a fulfilling live. It can also be in the feminine state to connect with other people, put their guards down, to be vulnerable” – 35.35 You can contact Purdeep via the following means: Web - https://purdeepsangha.com/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/purdeepsangha/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/PurdeepSangha Bio: Purdeep Sangha is widely known as “The Strategist For Men In Business” and teaches men how to become a Profit-Multiplying Powerhouse.

Episode 111 - Roz Savage, Author of the 'Gifts of Solitude,' motivational speaker and 4 x Guinness record world record holder
The weekly #HumansFirst open and inclusive calls can all be found here -> https://humansfirst.club/events Find the Aequip team at https://www.aequip.co.uk/ “There was a lot of surrender to what is, a need to refocus on the things that I could control like just showing up and to reframe the situation as I couldn’t change reality, but I can change my attitude to it” – 06.45  - “When you can't change what is happening around you, then the last power left to us is to choose our attitude (ref: Victor Frankl)” – 08.35  - “The beauty of curiosity is that it helps us be less attached to any particular outcome”  – 12.40 - “Think about what we want to carry forward. Which pieces of luggage can we put down and leave behind? What are the values that we really want to embody going forward, both individually and collectively“ – 14.15  - “I am curious about not just the abstract values, but the financial value that we put on things might get shaken up going forward and I hope that we take these opportunities and don’t go back to the same old, same old” - 21.20  - “I like the phrase; strong opinions, lightly held” – 25.55 -  “it is important to have beliefs, but also to know that we choose those beliefs and not to mistake them for truth” – 26.05 Roz can be found via the following means:  Web - https://www.thegiftsofsolitude.org/  LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/rozsavage/  Bio: Roz Savage is the first (and so far only) woman to row solo across the world’s “Big Three” oceans: Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian. She holds four Guinness World Records, and was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire for services to fundraising and the environment. It was an unexpected career move for a former management consultant who doesn’t particularly enjoy exercise. She was inspired to brave the oceans when she realised two things: 1) we are all capable of much more than we tend to believe we are, and 2) we need to make some changes if we're going to live healthy lives on a thriving planet. So she used her voyages to expand her own limits, and to promote sustainable living. She now writes, speaks, and lectures on sustainability, courage, resilience, and change.  You can contact me via the following means: Email – garry@garryturner.life Vimeo - https://vimeo.com/414211396 LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/garryinterpersonalcatalyst/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/GarryIPCatalyst Mike can be found via the following means: Email - mike@mjvacanti.com LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mjvacanti/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/MJVacanti Web - https://humansfirst.club/

If you just show your answer and its wrong, you have no evidence of how you got there. Don’t just tell me what you think, tell me how you got to the point of what you think” – 28.30 - “Rather than have D&I as a bolt-on, I wanted to turn it on its head and put inclusion at the heart and everything else bolting into that.

Episode 109 - Doug Kirkpatrick, US partner, NuFocus Strategic Group, author, keynote speaker and self-management expert
The weekly #HumansFirst open and inclusive calls can all be found here -> https://humansfirst.club/events Find the Aequip team at https://www.aequip.co.uk/ I loved this conversation with Doug Kirkpatrick as we explore deeply human, self-management organisations and practices. - “Working with our founder (during 1980s) we had some reservations about the organisation structure because we had kind of defaulted to the traditional command and control organisational structure that every other company used” – 02.10 -  “We started collecting observations. One of the observations was that people drive into the parking lot, park their car and come into work. We realised that every one of these individuals is a manager already in his or her own personal life so every one of those individuals is making gigantic life-altering decisions on their own without a boss. Their deciding who to date, who to marry, what to do for a living whether to take out a mortgage or have kids or whatever” – 03.20 -  “I am adding zero value to this process, in fact it is negative value because there is an opportunity cost associated with the time and effort involved so he (managing partner) came down the hall and dropped the checks off on my desk” – 04.50 -  “The Morningstar team principles essentially boiled down to two very simple things. First, human beings should not use force or coercion against other human beings. The second principle is that people should keep the commitments they make to each other” – 07.25 - “We basically changed the cost structure of our entire industry at that moment and we did it without ever deviating from our two principles; don’t use force and keep commitments. We became the largest tomato processor in the world (Morningstar)” – 09.45 Bio: As a partner in NuFocus Strategic Group, I now speak and consult on self-management around the world. I also share the message of organizational innovation through my best-selling books ("Beyond Empowerment" + "From Hierarchy to High Performance"), my latest book with Forbes, "The No-Limits Enterprise", TEDx and numerous articles and posts.
