This awareness partnered with conscious decisions, including separating from a strict religious sect, influenced his later life. His present work as a conscious leader and life coach, is reflected in the practical nature and academic approach that can be followed in the framework of his book.Tune in as Paul reveals the importance of confidence and the practices in his book “The Inner Journey To Conscious Leadership”. In This Episode: [01:20] Meet Paul Ward. Paul speaks about the inspiration behind his work with conscious leadership. [11:00] An individual needs to trust that in the end, everything will work out. Paul speaks about confidence. [12:35] Paul dives into his book “The Inner Journey To Conscious Leadership”. [15:25] The pace of work is preventing leaders from becoming conscious. To show up in a calm and present way, we need to STOP, take a breath, observe what is going on, and perceive. [20:55] Paul reveals the practices to set an intention. [25:10] How conscious leadership is shifting during the pandemic. Plus, Paul talks about the evolution of human consciousness in the workplace. [33:35] The importance of finding a mentor. [39:55] It’s essential to share vulnerability with others in our lives. When we share, others will be more willing to share. Key Takeaways: Awareness means we are noticing what is going on inside ourselves and in the world at large. Setting an intention means we are doing and being. Think about who you want to be, and work towards that. Your organization will thrive when leaders reach higher consciousness levels by championing conscious leadership and enabling conversations that matter. Confidence means we trust in ourselves. It’s essential to trust yourself first before you can trust others.

An Interview with Sarah Brightwood, President of Rancho La Puerta
Sarah L. Brightwood is the president of Rancho La Puerta, a world-renowned wellness resort and spa. She reflects on her upbringing and the privilege of being raised by a village in a nurturing and joyful pace of life. Sarah has the role of a dedicated healer with a profound connection to the land of the ranch, stewarding both the people and the flora/fauna with a spiritual touch. Her desire to ensure fairness and equity ripples outward from the Ranch and touches everyone-the Staff, guests, and community. She believes that taking care of the Staff , empowering them, and allowing them to grow within the Ranch will allow them to embody the Ranch’s culture, making the guests feel connected to the Ranch and nature. In This Episode: [01:43] Meet Sarah as she opens up about how her childhood and growing up in a mixed cultural heritage contributed to her being a conscious leader. [10:38] Choosing the leadership that continues the culture, language, and DNA of the Ranch.. [17:57] It is important that leaders, especially during these vulnerable times, support, help, and lift each other up. [23:08] The values of self that we learned going through COVID. [27:45] The actions Sarah took with her Staff when COVID forced the Ranch to close. [33:07] Having a holistic approach to running Rancho La Puerta Key Takeaways: There is no one right way to do things. To start living in a culture of conscious awareness, you need to stop and look at the unhealthy patterns that are repeating themselves. We need to strengthen our microbiomes and our digestive fire. We can only do that if we have some downtime, a place where we can hum to our Vagus nerve, and do all of those practices that bring us back to the center. Having the ability to return to the center when you get thrown off, to respond, to change, adapt, and to listen to non-human instructions is much greater than any individual. COVID has taught us that the illusion that we live in these separate boxes, in separate houses or separate bodies or separate countries, no longer holds.

Brightwood is the president of Rancho La Puerta, a world-renowned wellness resort and spa located in Baja, California, Mexico. She is the daughter of the founders of the Ranch, Deborah Szekely and Edmond Szekely. Sarah spoke Spanish before English and was lovingly cared for by the Mexican families working at the Ranch. She continues the family legacy of tending to the same land for almost 90 years and continues to oversee major upgrades at the Ranch that have kept up with changing times. During the COVID lockdown, they worked on a huge project called The Residence, which is an eco-village that’s designed to support health and wellbeing.

An Interview with Dr Mehrad Nazari, Founder of Enlightened Negotiation
Dr. Mehrad Nazari is a consultant, teacher, facilitator, and speaker. Through teaching, Nazari had an eye-opening experience that led to a strong interest in the concept of negotiation. His interest, partnered with his exposure to such a diverse student body, led him to write on the subject. The lack of awareness of what negotiation is has influenced how he looks at the subject. Interestingly, through his own life experiences, Dr. Nazari has drawn parallels with simple concepts and yoga practices, and the art of negotiation. Dr. Nazari has helped thousands of people worldwide elevate their personal and professional interactions by enhancing their negotiation skills. In This Episode: [00:00:46] Meet Dr Mehrad Nazari, born in Tiran, Iran, was enlisted in a compulsory military service for two years before going to London where he got his MBA. With the support of his family, he then went to the US to get a PhD. [00:05:39] Many languages do not have the word “negotiation”. What is often used is “haggling”. It is important to understand the difference between these two terms. [00:12:08] Dr Mehrad explains how every single type of communication has a different mindset and different skill set. [00:17:30] Research has shown that givers are more intelligent than takers. [00:20:20] People need to change their mindset from “haggling” to “negotiating.” Key Takeaways: Negotiation is whenever there is the expectation of exchange. Set your attention on your intention. Realize that there is always an opportunity for growth in every interaction. Excellent negotiators care about the success of the other party as much as they care about their own. A leader that is equal centric and aware that we are all connected, can energize and inspire people towards righteous action. We need to “AKT” – Awareness, Knowledge, Transformation.

This episode features John Renesch, advisor, mentor, futurist, and writer on matters of social and organizational change. Learn why he believes that commerce holds the key to bringing about a global shift of human consciousness thus creating a future of tremendous possibility for humankind. We have a conversation around making an urgent collective choice: to opt for responsible adulthood over the largely adolescent ways we have been relating to one another and our planet Earth demonstrating that it is not too late to create the future we all say we want for our children and our children’s children–a future that is environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just. Later, John reveals the qualities of a conscious leader; he describes the future of conscious leadership and reveals the biggest crisis in our world. Key Takeaways: Consciousness cannot be defined. When you are conscious, responsibility takes on a sacred role. Consciousness will become the way everyone starts living and leading. There needs to be a world that works for everyone. Our society will realize the highest priority is the wellbeing of everyone. Meet John Renesch John Renesch is an advisor, mentor, futurist and writer on matters of social and organizational change.
