6:2 - How Dr. Shefali Lives With Intention and Breaks Through Barriers
Dr. Shefali was 44 years old when she had an epiphany: the only person stopping her from harnessing her inner power was herself. She says, “I truly believe that there comes a critical moment in a woman’s life – typically around mid-life – where she faces a pivotal choice. I certainly came to that moment in my own life: either I continued being inauthentic to myself and stayed encaged in fear OR I stepped into a new dimension where I was fully, consciously, my true self.” Coming to a critical juncture in her own life, she had no choice but to walk away from the past. Dr. Shefali let go of her unhappiness, her ego, and discovered a profound freedom and purpose. Her moment of radical awakening led to the birth of a new self. What she experienced in her own journey, Dr. Shefali realized was readily available to all women.Featured prominently on Oprah Winfrey's platforms, Good Morning America, the Today Show, Hoda & Jenna, among many others…. Dr. Shefali is a The New York Times bestselling author and renowned clinical psychologist teaching women how to transcend their fears and illusions, breaking free from societal expectations, and rediscovering the person they were always meant to be: fully present, conscious, and fulfilled.According to Oprah Winfrey – “The world needs to know. Trailblazing. Life-enhancing. [A Radical Awakening is] one of those books you will want to keep on your nightstand.”DR. SHEFALI received her doctorate in clinical psychology from Columbia University. Specializing in the integration of Western psychology and Eastern philosophy, she brings together the best of both worlds for her clients. She is an expert in family dynamics and personal development, teaching courses around the globe. Dr. Shefali has written four books, including the award-winning, New York Times bestsellers The Conscious Parent and The Awakened Family. She's been featured prominently on Oprah Winfrey's platforms, Good Morning America, the Today Show, Hoda & Jenna, among many others. Dr. Shefali lives in New York City.

6:1 The Close, The Many, and The Powerful - How James Clear Defines Cultural Influencers
What is up, family culture hackers?! Welcome to the movement to revolutionize your family culture - a movement to shift away from the norms and values established by a society and a history saddled in a narrative of vanity, fear, scarcity, lack, prejudice, consumerism, inauthenticity, and contempt. These prevailing and pervasive beliefs are everywhere and most of us know it but we don’t really know what to do about it! I started learning about these dysfunctional beliefs when my life started going off the rails in 2016 (well, it started a lot sooner than that, but we’ll get into that later)! My husband, Michael, was miserable at his job. He hadn’t been able to find work in line with his goals so he found whatever he could and then found himself underemployed and unappreciated. We started having serious money problems, and soon found ourselves spiraling into serious depression. Without even realizing it, we were playing out a scripted narrative based in a patriarchal belief system. More than this, we were playing out a narrative of scarcity and lack, and fear and inauthenticity that had been inadvertently passed on to us from previous generations that have been deeply ingrained in our family and societal belief systems. We had roles to play, images to uphold, and duties to perform. We did everything right, and should have been on the right track. We kept our struggles at the surface in an effort to superficially resolve our problems with linear thinking to keep up the status quo. This status quo meant keeping up appearances and playing out the script for the foreseeable future. Then, we began to crack. The vision of being stuck like this forever was deeply depressing. There was no end and no escape. In 2019, we’d had enough. Michael quit his job. We sold our house. We moved in with my parents to reduce our expenses. We filed bankruptcy in 2020, and faced all our demons. All of them. If you are dying to make a change in your life somehow but you are feeling stuck, it is not your fault! These dominant belief systems often live just beneath the surface of your consciousness and you live out your day to day reacting to these beliefs. They have been passed on to you by society and family - sometimes even written into your DNA, so how could you know about it?! Family culture hacking is all about learning how to recognize these dysfunctional belief systems and stopping them in their tracks! Whenever you spot one, you’ll be able to say, “ah ha! Caught you!” Like a glitch in the Matrix. You’ll start to see them lurking everywhere - in your thoughts and language; in media, music, and marketing; in education; in government and politics; and even in your daily habits!There are three major players in the belief systems you pick up that influence your family culture the most. Author James Clear refers to these players as “the close,” “the many,” and “the powerful.” The close refers to your family and your community. The many refers to society at large and the commonly accepted narratives and norms you witness in the media and marketing. The powerful refers to the influencers, the leaders, and the game-changers throughout history who set the cultural expectations of your beliefs and identities. If you aren't aware, these three players can keep us stuck in a cultural identity that influences your thoughts, behaviors, and patterns. Because of the way humans are wired, we don’t want to be different. We learn early on how to fit in so we don’t get into trouble, or we learn when to stand out when we want to get what we want! We pick up beliefs about who we are to explain to ourselves how the world works and where we fit into the grand scheme of things. It’s likely you have learned to be comfortable with those beliefs because they have protected you and have provided you with your basic human needs. They have shaped your identity and perhaps have gotten you through some seriously troubling situations. But then, you find yourself raising a family of your own, and those beliefs are starting to get a little confusing or weird. No one really talked much about how difficult this family thing would be. The patterns that got you out of trouble are getting you into trouble and you’re fighting more with your spouse or your child. The ones that helped you get your needs met are starting to look more like manipulation and power struggles! You start to notice yourself repeating the same patterns of your parents. You hear your mom’s or your dad’s voice coming out of your own mouth, and that scares you! The thing about family culture and our human nature is that we like to take the path of least resistance. We set our lives on autopilot and try to stay within our comfort zones. When we get stuck or scared, it’s common to revert back to comfortable patterns or follow the crowd. The problem with this approach is that your old patterns are keeping you in a crisis loop where you don’t get ahead of the struggle, you just keep repeating the same day putting out fires as you go. Or, the crowd you’re following doesn’t actually know where they are going either! You tell yourself that you turned out OK in spite of your somewhat dysfunctional family, and you’re right, there’s a huge margin of error when it comes to raising your kids. But for culture hackers, that’s not good enough! You spot dysfunctional narratives whether they’re coming from the close, the many, or the powerful and you call it out and demand better. You catch yourself in your patterns when you’re coasting through life a little too casually and wake up to learn a better way. You learn to parent yourself recognizing that there are many skills you haven’t learned along the way because there was no one there to teach you those skills! How could they when they didn’t have them either?! Every week, I’ll be interviewing authors and experts who have spotted dysfunctional patterns in our dominant culture. We’ll unpack these beliefs and behaviors for you to analyze why we tend to repeat them even though we know they aren’t OK. Then, we’ll discuss solutions and behaviors to replace the dysfunctional ones so you can start practicing them. The goal of being a family culture hacker is to learn how to envision something better for you and your family, your community and the world, and start playing out a different role and writing a new script for yourself. Not only will you begin to have a better sense of direction and confidence in your parenting, you’ll also learn to avoid conflicts before they arise, shift your own beliefs to have a stronger sense of identity and purpose, and cultivate a new legacy for your kids to grow up with healthier role models. It might mean facing some ugly demons along the way but I promise you it is worth it!I also promise that you don’t have to do it alone. I will be here every step of the way as your mentor and guide. You can sign up for a free family culture strategy session with me at https://jodichaffee.com/strategy or go to homeandfamilyculture.com and click on “message me” to ask me a question and I’ll publish my answer in an episode and tag you on social media. Also, you can join other family culture hackers in our Facebook group or join the free membership, a toolbox full of curated freebies and gifts from my guests! Mother Teresa said “if you want to change the world, go home and love your family.” Family culture hackers, we change the world because we are part of a movement where we put our families first. We don’t accept the norms or systems of our dysfunctional society. We are a force for good and growth, and progress and change through compassion, collaboration, and perseverance.

5:43 - Facilitating Your Child's Education at Home with Christine Owens
Christine Owens is a mother of four children from ages 6 -16 and has homeschooled for 10 years in five states. She has 14 years experience in various facets of public education. She has traveled to 20 countries , and over 1/2 of the united states. Her family loves to travel and loves traveling to learn. She loves chocolate, old books and hippos. Christine creates homeschooling resources to help parents learn through classic literature. This would include unit studies based on classic literature and soon to include resources on poetry. She has also written two books: Relaxed Homeschooling: Unlocking the Secrets of books and life to help people find a new way to see homeschooling; and A Year of Poetry Tea Time: The Essential Guide to Everything Poetry and Tea, a collection of poetry and so much more. Christine and I discussed a dysfunction in our society that children have to learn certain things by a certain age and that ages need to be taught separately. The reality is parents need to realize that schools are designed for the masses. They are not there to accommodate and one child's special interests. If a child is aloud to learn about things that interest them, that they are curious about their level of retention is improved greatly. Letting children learn through curiosity not only increases their retention but also leads to a love for learning. When children fall in love of learning they are also more willing to learn new things. Not only that, but children are very capable of learning, understanding, and discussing things that are considered "to advanced" for them. This is why I started to read poetry and unabridged classics to my children at a young age. Whether they are homeschooled or public schooled parents can benefit from knowing this information. Parents need to know that even though their children may be attending classes at a school that ultimately it is the parents responsibility to make sure their children receive the education they want them to have. This can include taking action and reading classic literature to children at night, Playing fun trivia games during dinner, teaching adult skills like cooking, finances, and serving others. The very first classic Christine read to her children was Howard Pyle's Robin Hood. "At first I thought I had lost my mind. Not only was the book in an old english but I had to read it. I had to stop and explain what was happening every sentence. I was wanting to just throw in the towel but at the same time I refused. After a while I got better at reading and I was explaining things every paragraph and then once on a page. To my astonishment, my tiny 4 and 6 year old were starting to understand the book and by half way through I was nearly having to explain anything any more. They were laughing at the jokes and cheering on the characters. This made me realize that it did not have to worry so much about what topics we learned about but just how we experienced it. Since then we have read many books, read poetry, learned about philosophers, history and anything else that struck us as interesting."Your child's education happens everywhere. Parents can and should lead out in discussions, read aloud to their children of all ages, and encourage their children to develop their learning skills.Learn more about Christine by going to www.littlerabbittrails.com/Get more resources for your intentional family culture by joining the Family Success Toolbox at www.homeandfamilyculture.com or Text CULTURE to (917) 905-8801.

5:42 - Empowering Your Introverts with Sandra Etherington
Sandra Etherington is a mom of a 5 year old and an 8 year old. She is the owner of Family Personalities and the co-host of the Family Personalities podcast, a fun and sometimes cheesy podcast, that uses personality type to help change the way you see your family. Sandra uses her experience and training in Myers-Briggs personality type, to work one on one with families, helping them parent more effectively and peacefully based on their children's unique wiring and needs. Sandra works with families and personality type. Specifically, she uses the Myers-Briggs personality type model to change the way parents relate to themselves and their children. When you understand your children's personality types, you can better honor their needs and help them grow up happy and fulfilled. When you understand your own personality type and that of our parenting partner, we can communicate and work better together to improve the overall family dynamic.There is a favoring of extraversion in our dominant culture despite the fact that there are slightly more people who prefer introversion in the world. Sandra and I go into this facet in our children and how kids who prefer introversion have differing needs from those who prefer extraversion. Sandra goes into understanding the brain mechanisms behind introversion/extraversion and how to work specific tips into your parenting for your Introversion kiddos (and some for your extraversion kiddos too!)When you expect your children to operate in their less comfortable way (i.e. expecting a child who prefers Introversion to act more like an extravert) you are causing them chronic stress. Understanding that your children need to fill their buckets by operating in their preferred way before they can stretch and grow is an important aspect of what Sandra does when she works with type & families.

5:39 - Empowering Your Children to Speak with Jackie Bailey
Growing up in a family culture of abuse and neglect, Jackie Bailey was told "Don't tell." With her self-esteem crushed, and her voice silenced, she withdrew. Years later, faced with the necessity to use her voice to save a life, Jackie realized the importance of being heard. As the executive director of the Speak Feed Lead Project (a nonprofit serving children and adults), Jackie's mission today is to help others find their voice and speak their message with power.Jackie is the author of SELF-Centered Leadership: Becoming Influential, Intentional, and Exceptional. She is an international speaker, mentor, and trainer who has developed public speaking and leadership curriculum and teaches 100's of children, teens, and adults in a virtual classroom.Inspiring her students to discover their story, value their culture, and develop empathy for others is an essential part of the mission of The Speak Feed Lead Project.Children are undervalued as a source of inspiration. They've been taught this as well, leading them to internalize their feelings without the skills to share them properly.Communication is not optional. When parents and children don't communicate it leads to misinterpretation, misinformation, and misperception. The solution is helping children, teens and adults to examine their values, discover their stories, and learn to use their voice for good.Parents love when children answer questions with actual words rather than grunts or "whatever". Conversation and listening skills are the foundation to clear and concise communication.Governments spend millions of dollars on youth programs, and it's not working. The stats regarding juvenile justice, foster care, and homelessness are astounding in their proof of failure. The programs I offer is a new idea, and has had incredible results.Jackie shares her experience growing up in an abusive situation and how it has led her to work to empower children to use their voices to speak up for themselves, and to make a difference!The Speak Feed Lead Project is a 501(c)(3) corporation transforming children, teens and adults to SPEAK with power, FEED others in word and deed, and LEAD with positive influenceConnect with Jackie at www.SpeakFeedLead.OrgGet more resources for your intentional family culture by joining the Family Success Toolbox at www.homeandfamilyculture.com or Text CULTURE to (917) 905-8801.

In the last five years, she and her husband have added six children to their family - three biological and three adopted. Three of Laura's children attend public school, she homeschools five, and she manages 20+ appointments a week for her three special needs children.Laura is dedicated to helping women bring more peace to their homes. Designing customized systems that help a family run more smoothly and reduce a mother's daily work load is her specialty.In this episode, Laura and I talked about creating a team mentality in the family and lessening entitlement, and how to create systems that empower your children to help and to take responsibility for things in the house and clear expectations of the workload. The workload of the mama doing it all, not only wares her down but the ripple effects of that ooze out to the whole family. Your children begin to act entitled, and aren't learning the skills of responsibility, gaining confidence through work, nor how to care for themselves and contribute to the family like a team. When kids are taught these skills, the load can be distributed to the whole family.

Kent and Amy are the parents of 7 and grandparents to 6. They have been parenting for 28 years and find their greatest joy with their family. They are also passionate about helping youth to recognize and stand in their greatness and have been inspiring youth for 2 decades. For the last decade they have also been training parents how to be mentors in their own homes. Kent and Amy believe that families are worth fighting for and created Revolutionary Heroes to help families win that fight and develop amazing youth who live as modern day heroes.Kent and Amy train parents and youth to learn from leaders of the past how to live principles of truth and step up and live as Heroes whose impact is Revolutionary. They teach online parenting courses to help parents increase their confidence, see their children as heroes, and have increased success in their homes by making paradigm shifts and learning powerful tools. They also teach online youth courses to help youth and children to understand their own greatness and be able to stand up and make a difference for good in the world, and teach live training courses to teachers, parents and youth and do personal coaching.In this episode, the Bowlers and I discuss the importance of seeing our children's genius. So often as parents, we see their weaknesses or struggles. The dirty socks on the floor, the disrespectful attitude or the lack of motivation. When we focus on these negative things, it's more difficult to help our children to overcome them. But when we focus on the positive, powerful changes can start to happen.A simple tool that Kent and Amy teach is to write down 1 positive thing that you see your child do every day. You could write this in a journal or a phone app. But the key is to reflect on their actions from the day and find at least one good thing they have done. It could be as simple as a smile for a younger sibling, a thank you to a parent or as profound as completing a difficult assignment or stopping a bad habit. The act of pondering the positive will focus your mind on the good and soon, you'll be seeing more and more of the good that is within them. They call this the Proof Positive Journal.

5:32 - Intentional Family Culture After Divorce with Jennifer Bogard
Jennifer Bogard is a Life Coach. She works with women who've experienced divorce mid-life. Jennifer helps them to stop living at the mercy of their emotions and emotional triggers so they can move forward to create a new life that they are proud of. No more survival mode or automatic default. Jennifer became a certified life coach through The Life Coach School following the finalization of her own divorce in 2018. After a successful 15 year career in Human Resources her plan was to do Leadership Coaching - she NEVER wanted to become a poster child for divorce - but, God had other plans. She began to feel the nudge in this direction and now I cannot imagine doing anything else. Keep in mind in this episode Jennifer's belief that there is no such thing as a broken home. "So often I hear from my clients that they 'never wanted their kids to have a broken home'. I don't believe there are broken homes. There are only broken people. People can be healed and made whole." We also talked about thriving through divorce and stepping into future you now!When we are struggling so profoundly after divorce our children see us. They also feel the loss and the pain of divorce. Their world has been rocked too. It's critical to understand that you can't give your children what you don't have. You must take your own healing seriously - and time is not a healer. Healing is an active process. When a mom learns to manage her own mind and emotions, takes back her power and stops seeing herself as a victim, rebuilds her life on a foundation of self-love and self-worth, and casts a new vision for her life and family ---- THESE are the most valuable things she can provide for her children. Divorced families are nearly 50% - this is a HUGE issue. When we see our homes as broken then we will live that out. We will see our families as less than and disadvantaged. When we see our family in that light so will our children. Divorced families, and single parents have a strong ability and need to be intentional about the family culture they are creating. It starts with healing, and claiming that power.Learn more about Jennifer: http://jenniferbogard.com/Connect on Social media: @jenniferbogardcoaching on Facebook @jennifer_bogard_coaching on InstagramDownload Jennifer's Free PDF: Feeling = Healing inside the Family Leadership Toolbox https://bit.ly/FreeFamilyLeadershipToolbox

The culture that pornography exudes cuts deeply into our society and is impacting and deteriorating families in ways that you might not have expected if you don't have experience with it.Moral of the story: Pornography addiction is insidious and dangerous, but don't just shield your families from it. Education them about it. Create open communication around it. Awkwardness or shielding will only lead to shame which creates hiding the curiosity people naturally feel toward sexuality.Learn more about Joshua and his message by going to RecoveringPornAddict.com

5:28 - Transforming Relationships Through Language with Krister Ungerbock
Krister Ungerböck is a global communication expert, keynote speaker and CEO coach who delivers groundbreaking insight for leading high-performance teams, driving leadership-development efforts and maximizing business growth. His search for leadership truths in unexpected places led him to discover insights and lessons that have shaped his point of view today. He has consulted with some of the greatest thought leaders around the world across disciplines to discover the most powerful – and often surprising – models, ideas and secrets about effective leadership communication and leadership development within organizations. Krister uncovered universal communication secrets that utilize emotional intelligence to drive connection, growth and high performance for organizations and individuals alike. His upcoming book, tentatively titled 22 Talk SHIFTS, reveals how people can upgrade their language and improve their listening skills to inspire authentic followership at work and at home. By rooting their communication in emotional intelligence, and encouraging their managers to do the same, organizational leaders can unlock their full leadership potential to boost employee engagement and business growth. As an engaging keynote speaker and executive coach who has spoken to audiences on five continents, Krister shares unconventional leadership development insight unearthed on his travels, as well as wisdom gleaned from his own experience building one of the world’s largest family-owned technology companies. He fearlessly shares real-life stories with concrete, actionable steps to drive employee engagement, business growth and profitability by building better bosses. Krister Ungerböck is a leadership communication expert, keynote speaker, and former CEO of a global tech company. His work has appeared in NPR, Forbes, Inc., HR.com, Chief Executive, Recruiter.com and Entrepreneur. Prior to exiting corporate life at age 42, Krister was CEO of one of the largest family-owned software companies in the world. Despite seeing 3000% growth and employee engagement levels of 99% while CEO of a large software company -- Krister says his crowning achievement is learning how to be a compassionate leader of his family and co-parent with his ex-wife. His book 22 TALK SHIFTs: TOOLS TO TRANSFORM LEADERSHIP in Business, in Partnership and in Life helps people build better leaders and parents by shifting their words. The reality is that merely listening is enough to truly understand what people (especially children and spouses) are trying to communicate. Krister and I had a great conversation about how a few simple "talk shifts" can transform your relationships. The key, according to Krister, is to listen for needs, not words: When you listen beyond what people are saying and start listening for the needs that people are expressing, you’ll open yourself to a greater understanding of the motivations behind their actions. This helps us to build more compassion and less judgment as we listen. This is especially powerful when we use it to explore what might be behind the words, attitudes, and behaviors of people who frustrate or incite us. These simple talk shifts can break the cycle of strained communication within family units -- and strained relationships between children, spouses, and ex-spouses you co-parent with.
