High-Performer's & Workaholism: How It Might Be Helping You and Hurting You
For people that identify as being high-achievers, there is a constant tension between knowing when we’re working too much, and when we’re not working enough to achieve our goals. A word that gets tossed around sometimes, is the work “workaholic”, which is this idea that our work becomes a sort of addiction. In today's episode, I'm with my friend and super smart dude Uriah Guilford, where we talk about workaholism and go through these questions and more: What is workaholism? (commonly held definitions)What’s the difference between workaholism and being just a hard worker?What are the signs of workaholism?Why does workaholism happen?What might be the upsides of workaholism?Why is workaholism bad for your relationship, family, physical health, etc. And what happens if it’s not addressed? Any action steps for someone that feels they might be struggling with this? Or for a family member of someone who might be a workaholic?Questions like these, and many more are the focus of today’s conversation on The Business of Connection. Today, I interview my friend Uriah Guilford…..Uriah is a multi-business owner, and Business Made Simple certified executive coach. In our conversation today, we discuss the pros of working too much, the cons, and how to assess where you’re at in your own life around this topic.

How to Discover You Unique Life's Purpose
What an ambitious podcast right!? My friend Dr. Andy Garrett and I talk about how our unique identities forge the way for our unique purpose in life, love, and business, and Andy brilliantly lays out a process for anyone to discover how they are uniquely different and the unique purpose that is the outflowing from this place. We cover some questions like: How we discover our unique purpose.What tends to be the greatest barriers to people living with purposeHow getting to know yourself - and turning this self-knowledge into a simple - but practical blueprint for how to make decisions that reflect what is most important and meaningful to you.The role that autonomy plays in creating a life of purpose?How understanding your core values is critical to knowing your purpose - and living Authentically.How true purpose should be intrinsically motivated?What role does our identity play in establishing our purpose?How understanding what true virtuousness is - can help you discover your purpose?Without understanding our unique identities, our unique core values, and our unique purpose, it makes life and relationships a real challenge. In order for any of us to be truly successful, we have to know who we really are, and how this translates to showing up in the world. I hope you enjoy our 60 minute conversation!Dr. Andy can be reached here: https://ag-thrive.com/about/

When we take a look around, particularly on social media, we see so much division.The world, and sometimes even our families, can get divided into camps of “good guys” and “bad guys”. Of course, the world is never this simple, and when we don’t know how to have conversations that unite, things become divided.Unfortunately, this division is taking place inside some families and business teams, which is just too sad and tragic.Creating more unity with the people we care about is simply about engaging best practices with our ability to communicate with each other.In this short solo podcast, I talk about an essential 3-step process to creating more unity with the people we care about.If your family or business team feels divided, take the lead by watching this video and practicing these 3 steps; my promise is that it will bring a greater sense of unity with those you care most about and put a halt to the unnecessary and challenging tension.Cheers to building unity,Quentin

Chris is a leadership consultant, a relationship therapist, and the owner of a group counseling practice in Orange County, CA.Chris specializes in relational and emotional health working with leaders all across the country. Here are a few of the ideas we chat about in this show: **Now more than ever, this is when being a leader is tough. You have a group of people depending on you to “have it all together” in some ways, but you might not feel like you have it all together at all. You might be really overwhelmed too. What are you seeing with the leaders you work with right now in how they’re generally handling all of this emotionally?**As the cliché goes, it can be lonely at the top. Many leaders don’t have an outlet to be honest with their own emotional experience. How should leaders process their emotions during this time, yet balance the need to be seen by the people they lead as not falling apart?**If leaders adopt the mentality of “staying strong” by denying & suppressing their emotions right now, why could that be a bad thing and what is the potential hazards of not being honest with yourself. (And conversely, what is the upside of being able to process your emotional experience right now?)**Where are the safe places for leaders to really experience their emotions right now?**What is the ONE piece of advice you would give to any leader right now that is feeling overwhelmed by the prospects of the future, but also needs to demonstrate leadership capabilities to their team?Chris can be reached at: https://www.renovaricounseling.com/chris-williams
