Shift Happens: Managing Fear Through Change
In the workplace, change is inevitable and also considered a four-letter word. The human mind seeks comfort in daily routines and rituals. When our environment changes, our brain shifts into a high-stress mode and then feeds into fear. In this episode, Chief Wellness Officer and host, Dr. Romie, breaks down the neuropsychology of why the brain's initial response to change is fear. When fear sets in, the instinctual response is to question, "Am I safe?" and "Am I cared for?" As our company faces change, Dr. Romie discusses how Evo's mindfulness program and guiding principles can leaders manage emotions and operations. Evolution Hospitality is a third-party hospitality management company with corporate headquarters in San Clemente, California. For more information visit www.evolutionhospitality.com Show Notes: [01:51] I'm going to break down specific skill sets for leaders. [02:20] Change can feel like a four letter word the "f word" fear. [02:39] When our routines are disrupted our brains get hijacked and our brain gets shifted into fear. [02:49] Leaders and teams who succeed know how to put actions in place to manage change and manage emotions. [04:01] Unexpected changes in our routine can create fear. Fear is created in levels one and two of our brain or our subconscious. [04:23] Level one or the basement is our survival center. This is where our life supporting regulations happen. When fear comes in our mind defaults to thinking from this area. [04:52] During times of change, the emotions present can feel like a lack of safety in the workplace. [05:09] Level two is the limbic system or the emotion and memory center. When we don't feel safe, our minds start asking if we are cared for. [06:20] Level three is responsible for analysis, processing data, decision making, and taking action. If levels one and two aren't feeling safe, fear can take over and false evidence appears real. [07:50] Start in the basement and assess level one. Do you feel safe? [08:54] For level number two ask, "Am I cared for?" We are a people driven culture. [10:35] To transform fear into calm stick to your daily rituals of wellness, especially sleep. At times of stress, we often let our wellness rituals go. I asked you to stick to it. [11:14] Find a trusted advisor to talk to. [11:35] Try the loving-kindness meditation. It's based on self-compassion and showing compassion for others. [00:13:16] Make sure your team members hear the words, "you are safe I care about you." Links and Resources: Evolution Hospitality Loving-Kindness Meditation

[13:31] The three programs that have helped us is our mindfulness program called The Power of Pause, emotional intelligence training, and are crucial conversations. [16:18] Guiding principles include giving the benefit of the doubt and listening. Being present is also critically important. [19:43] At Evo, we care for each other as a company. You are safe, and you are cared for. [22:04] Bring your team together and make it better than it was before. [23:58] Think about how to make the broader company better. It's not us versus the parent company. [27:15] We need to maximize performance in all verticals. [28:46] Will takes a pause by riding his bike, meditation, and music. He loves Rock 'n' Roll. [30:50] Take the time to slow down and spend one-on-one time with people. [32:00] Giving and accepting feedback openly is a main guiding principle for Will.

HOW TO ADOPT AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
One of the most guiding principles of Evolution Hospitality is to work with gratitude and humility. Listen to John Murphy's perspective on gratitude. "I think there's a relationship between joy and gratitude." He speaks of being humble and grateful as being the keys to the kingdom. As we come back to the holiday season, we have busy days and busy minds. Remember, gratitude rewires our brain for true happiness and joy. We will dive into how the brain processes and transforms with gratitude. I'll also teach you the psychological principles of processing gratitude. Yes! There is psychology science, which shows how gratitude can cause this type of transformation. What happens in your brain? First, think about what happens when you have pain, especially emotional pain and day-to-day stress. Did you know the emotional centers which process pain in our brain can only work if our pleasure system is deactivated? Temporary activities to create pleasure are eating chocolate or buying yourself something new and exciting. This gives you a temporary rush and can quickly transform into guilt, which lends your brain to experience pain. True pleasure, which can block the pain center in your brain, come in the form of social connections as well as gratitude. Making a habit of giving and receiving gratitude can rewire our brains for a consistent feeling of pleasure. How can we do that? Take a pause and say something you are grateful for in the past week. To stimulate the pleasure center in our brain, we have to perceive that gratitude through our senses. When you give thanks and gratitude, think of a specific memory that is associated with your gratitude. Think of someone on your team who you are grateful for and think of a moment with them. As we move forward, let's stimulate the pleasure centers of your brain by not only giving gratitude but receiving gratitude. My challenge for you: before the end of the month, find a person you work with and tell them or write them a note about why you are grateful for them. Could you take a pause and express this gratitude to a fellow evolutionary? Show Notes: [01:22] John Murphy speaks on gratitude. [02:07] Gratitude rewires our brain for true happiness and joy. [03:01] I invite you to pause for gratitude for someone in your workplace. [03:19] What happens in your brain? [04:30] The types of true pleasure you can have to block the pain center in your brain. [05:41] Examples of perceiving gratitude through your senses. [07:29] Think of a specific memory when you give thanks.

[27:37] Hygge is the Danish concept of comfort. This trend can be incorporated at every level. [29:11] Food labeling is important. Have electrolyte drops on the table or do a vegan breakout. Smoothie bars are great options too. [32:15] Junk food isn't acceptable anymore. Having presentations by dietitians are also a great wellness step for meetings. [34:19] Ashly takes a pause by taking time to meditate and breathe and set her intention before she walks into the door with her family after a hard day's work. [35:45] Catherine can't take a pause everyday. When she does, she shuts the door and removes sounds and blue lights and just breathes.
