#008 Silently Suffering: what if our approach to life isn't working? (even when we think it is)
When the going gets tough, the tough get going... Or at least that's the theory! But what happens when we 'think' we're doing everything right and yet we still feel tight inside, Or we have jaw pain. Or stomach problems. Are we silently suffering even when we think we're getting it all 'right'? In this conversation, Maren and Cathy consider what it means to take responsibility for, but not to take on the pressure of circumstances. To find objectivity, perspective, peace of mind and, ultimately, freedom from taking things personally. Enjoy!

#007 The Paradox of Success: your relationship with success is more important than your strategies.
We all know that feeling of wanting something so, so desperately that we end up squeezing the life out of it. We've seen it a million times: the over-eager boyfriend or girlfriend who wants to get married after the first date, the colleague who wants the promotion yet fails time and again to those who see to work less hard at it... Why is this? And how do we 'let go' just enough without becoming complacent? Surely commitment and focus are the very things that get us what we want?? At the heart of this question is a paradox: what we're calling 'the paradox of success'. Tune in today to listen to Cathy and Maren discuss the relationship between ambition, attachment, and achievement. What are these things anyway and how do we learn to see through them to become the highest performer in all areas of our life and work? Understanding how to dance with this is how you will achieve the most success, and how you'll love your life (and work) along the way. Enjoy!

#006 Feedback: the principles behind giving (and receiving) feedback
What's going on the moment your stomach curls when someone gives you 'helpful' feedback? What should you listen for when you're receiving getting feedback? Indeed, when and why would you even ask for it (not the reason you're thinking!) And when it comes to *giving* feedback, discover exactly what to keep in mind so that your feedback is constructive and makes a positive impact on the person in front of you. 'Tune in' to find out more...

#005 Commitment: Is it really the driver of results that we think it is?
"You have to have commitment!" we hear. But is it really the driver of performance and relationships that it appears to be? What if we have it backwards? What if commitment isn't the 'thing' we need more of? What if it's a result of, and not the cause of deep connection and engagement with whatever it is we're doing. In this fascinating conversation we explore the nature of commitment and the implications of this unconventional perspective. Tune in and change the way you look at relationships at home and at work!

#004 Decisions: taking the weight out of 'difficult' decisions
In this episode we explore what it is that makes some decisions 'difficult'. Many times we're not actually making better decisions, we're simply looking for a better crystal ball to predict the future. When we see that there is no way to truly see into the future, we can put our energy, time and resources, into understanding why some decisions are 'difficult' in the first place and, from that new perspective, new solutions will emerge effortlessly.
