Ep. 30 | Evolving Beyond "Man Box" Culture with Joree Rose & Dr. John Schinnerer
Today on the Podcast, Charlie is joined by two guests, and they dive deep into leadership skills as relationship skills. Joree Rose is a LMFT, Author, Mindfulness and Meditation Teacher, and Podcast Host of Journey Forward with Joree Rose.

Ep. 29 | Creating Values in Business
Today on the Podcast we are joined by Mia Kyricos, who manages her own small business strategically advising leadership teams who want to bring wellness to life. She specializes in the hospitality industry and brand strategy, and has worked with various companies to help them identify their brand values and align them with the company goals. She knows that once the core values have been established, the company and the employees will flourish, and it is an essential piece in bringing any wellness to life. She insists that there is not enough space in the business world for fostering creativity and allowing questions to be part of the discussion. By bringing mindfulness and core values to forefront, leaders are inevitably creating a workplace that allows employees to show up as the best version of themselves, and lets them continue to be the best version of themselves throughout the day. “The role of mindfulness in the business setting is to stop the spinning."

Ep. 28 | Stay Nimble and Stay Flexible
Today on the Podcast, we sit down to talk with Todd Steele, CEO of active-wear clothing brand Lolë, whose mission is to help people connect with the outdoors and bring well-being to as many aspects of their lives as possible. He speaks candidly about his journey into leadership, and how essential flexibility has been for him in this role. He realized early on that leadership is not something that simply comes to you, but rather it is a skill that you need to work on like any other. Like many leaders and businesses in the past year, Lolë was forced to change at a pace that was not normal for any business due to COVID – but at the end of it all, Todd recognizes that there were some positive attributes that came out of the crisis. The challenge now, he thinks, is going to be trying to retain those good things: “nimbleness, efficiency, openness to new ideas, and the idea that small teams can accomplish big things.”

Ep. 27 | The Importance of Self-Reflection
Melissa Eisler has been a leadership and executive coach, mindfulness facilitator, yoga instructor, and hosted leadership retreats – and she credits much of her success to her meditation and mindfulness practices. Join us today as she shares her journey, including her struggles learning to meditate, overcoming the overwhelming feelings of grief and anxiety, and working to silence her inner critic. She shares thoughts on the importance of self-reflection, and how to first capture and then review those thoughts. And she delves deep into the importance of discernment as a leader; she believes the best quality a leader can possess is the ability to adapt. “Developing self-reflective practices and paths to expose your blind spots and learn from them is so important," she says. "It’s about having a growth mindset.”

Ep 26 | Leaning Into Discomfort
We're back! After a brief hiatus, we catch up with Charlie and Erika Fisher, Chief Administration Officer & General Counsel at Atlassian. As a leader of many teams who have shifted to working from home, Erika shares insights on the pursuit of a work/life balance over time, zoom fatigue, and leaning into personal discomfort in an effort to continue to become a better leader. She is proud to be part of a team and a company that are looking for ways to continue to move forward and create a better work environment for their employees, as well as challenging herself to have the hard conversations that arise in her place of leadership. She continuously asks herself, "How uncomfortable am I making myself? Because I have a responsibility here to not just fall into the norms and accept it. [...] If I'm not changing the conversation, than I am probably only reinforcing it."

Ep 25 | Earning it Every Day
Jumping into another week of messiness, we are joined by a different perspective this week: Eric Edelstein, President of the Reno Aces Minor League Baseball Team and Reno 1868 Football Club. Eric and Charlie talk about leadership in sports and navigating the changes to this world during COVID-19. As a young child, Eric realized that being an all-star player wasn't the only way to keep the game he loved in his life; what he lacked in natural-born ability he could make up for in hard work. Embracing a strong work ethic from an early age allowed Eric to focus on achieving his dreams, which has led him to managing professional teams for over 20 years - something he never takes for granted. Staying involved in professional sports as a career takes constant adaptation and personal development. "It's not my birthright to be the president of a professional sports team. It's something I have to continue to earn each day," Eric says.

As a leadership development professional and leadership coach for over 25 years, Ben loves the challenge of working with people, and enjoys leading strategies based in a strong vision, mission, or purpose. "Whenever you get a group of human beings together [...] to execute a strategy, it's gonna be messy," he notes. He offers tips for maintaining your mindfulness practice during times of dis-regulation and how to lean into the messiness and adjust your focus in your mindset.

Ep. 23 | The Value of Connecting on an Individual Level
It’s all about connection. Today we welcome Chris Skelding of the Sales Leadership Team at Hyatt Hotels, and discuss the importance of connecting with individuals to create a more efficient workplace, and how that ultimately translates to a more successful business. While we are often told to separate our personal life from business, Chris reminds us that as a leader, “you have to take care of yourself. If you don't take care of yourself, you can't take care of others and you can't be present.” With a lifelong career in hospitality, Chris has always been surrounded by people who are eager to act and to solve problems. He has experienced firsthand the importance of laying the groundwork with his team and building personal connections that allow them to move forward and achieve a more productive and cohesive work environment.

Ep 22 | (2 of 2) "It's not about me, it's about my people"
Greg Skidmore and Todd DeGhetto are back to take last week's conversation deeper. Todd shares his vulnerable leadership learnings that were truly life and death in his line of work as a retired Navy SEAL. These hard lessons allowed him to see that everyone on his team has a purpose, the need (and desire) to make mistakes and the importance of staying focused and clear, despite the fear. As a leader you must be able to identify team member strengths and fit them into the right team or project, know your purpose and take responsibility for your mistakes and grow. Join us for a second round of inspiring conversation.

Ep 21 | (1 of 2) Flexing Your Perseverance Muscle with a Navy Seal & Financial Advisor
Charlie rounds up his friends Greg Skidmore, an entrepreneur and Financial Planner, and Todd DeGehetto, a retired Navy Seal, to discuss the significance of flexing your perseverance muscle. We discuss what it looks like from these two diverse backgrounds, and we are reminded, whether in business or the battlefield, you must learn to keep pushing yourself just outside of your comfort zone and get comfortable with the feeling of being uncomfortable. Todd believes we all should fail, otherwise we're going to be afraid to try. If you've never failed, the harder it is to take a risk. Just like we would train our bodies to run a relay race or prepare for a mission, we must train and flex our perseverance muscle in order to achieve greatness and peace.

Professional ultra-runner, Adam Kimble, joins us on the podcast for an inspirational conversation on pushing our boundaries.

Adam fills us in how he has applied this way of thinking in his own life and provides insight on how you can adapt this into your own life. Dare to be brave with us.

Ep 19 | Life Lessons from a Miner's Daughter & Board Executive
A fiercely loyal and proud Nevadan, Dana Bennett, talks with us about her experience as President of the Mining Association for the state. Dana gives us a peak behind the curtain and addresses a lot of the misconceptions about mining and just how misunderstood the industry is. Now as a retiree, Dana reflects upon her greatest lesson learned: time is the most valuable resource we have and we must honor our choices of how we decide to use that time. There never is an adverse outcome to taking a vacation or being fully present at your child's birthday party.

Because if we can't laugh along the journey, you won't make it out feeling truly alive and connected with one another.

Ep 15 | Breaking the Barriers of Work Life Separation
Josh Lieberman works for the Fire Department for the City of Reno and today on the podcast, he dives into his leadership style as a Captain. Josh dispels the belief that you need to have work/life separation as Fire Departments endure 48+ hour shifts where meals are shared and down time can be inevitable. Fortunately, Josh has created a culture where open conversations happen around the ladder truck's dining room table especially at a time when real, honest ones need to happen. Hear how Josh leads from the front and how it's helped him be a true leader to his extended family at the Fire Department.

Ep 14 | Leadership lessons from a D1 college football coach
Today on the podcast the head coach for the Washington State Cougars Football Team, Nick Rolovich, joins us. Nick shares his humbling journey of straying from his path and returning to his “why”. From that journey, Nick shares the lessons he now imparts on his individual athletes to mold a team dynamic that keeps everyone aligned and focused on the task at hand. Nick reminds us that within a team, every player will have their individual goals, of course, but when you step out onto the field or in the workplace, you play hard, smart and understand there is a responsibility to support the greater team. You are not just 11 individuals out on the field - you are stronger as a unit when you look out for your teammates or your coworkers.

Ep 12 | Discovering the Leader in All of Us with Sue Purvis
Sue Purvis is back to discuss the messiness of Mindful Leadership. Like many, Sue has never really identified with the leader title. We all may not lead Fortune 500 companies or even manage a small team of 50 in a "designated leadership" role, but each and every day we must practice "self-leadership" and "active followership". Charlie and Sue discuss their own journeys of getting in the muck, knowing there is always more to learn and having the courage to stand proudly with your purpose and values. "We learn that our best is far better than we thought when we push ourselves. When we get out of our comfort zone, that is when the real work begins." - Charlie White

Ep 11 | Surrendering Control with Molly Dahl
Molly Dahl is the author of Youth Positive as well as motivational speaker. Molly discusses her own journey of discovering mindfulness as a teacher and gives practical advice on how we can all work towards eradicating those regrettable emotional episodes through simple steps. Through all of the messiness and mucky water we can find along the way, Molly firmly believes the path to mindfulness is always worth the challenge and a feeling of complete freedom that comes when you surrender to this journey. "When we can surrender our need to control and surrender to what the practice of mindfulness will do for you, your practice will get you there. There is a freedom that comes from surrendering." - Molly Dahl
