Designed to change how we own our individual journeys and collective growth. Let’s explore the dynamism of the human condition together.

 

Season 1, Ep. 1 - On Empathy

Empathy is a concept that can be simultaneously familiar and foreign. We define it as a conscious choice on how to relate to people and discuss empathy from this perspective. We explore why it feels like practicing empathy feels courageous, rather than normal, and how we can create more of it in our every day lives.

 

Listen as we touch on the psychology of empathy and practical frameworks and steps you can take to build empathy. We use our personal stories and connections to moments allyship to break down this concept in a way

Season 1, Ep. 2 - On Compassion

Compassion and empathy are related, but we discuss how compassion is moving beyond caring and understanding to a will and desire to act. It starts with compassion for oneself and conducting emotional "hygiene" as diligently as we brush our teeth or shower. It ends with being present and validating the experiences of others.

 

Join us as we discuss how we shift our perspective to see compassion as a strength — in our workplaces and in our lives.

Season 1, Ep. 3 - On Vulnerability

Great stories and effective allyship both require a commitment to vulnerability.  However, being vulnerable is often framed as being close to harm, weakness or danger.

 

We talk about how letting people see more of who you are is a strength and that ultimately, your vulnerability gives others permission to own their own stories.  Join us as we talk about modeling vulnerability, how we build a culture of trust and psychological safety for that to happen, and why vulnerability is so important.

Season 1, Ep. 4 - On Curiosity

As human beings, we are a product of conditioning, instinct, and evolution that teaches us about the dangers of curiosity. However, as we move from hunter-gatherer communities siloed by distance and culture toward an increasingly connected and shared world, curiosity becomes more important; the things we can learn from diverse human interaction can help us approach new experiences with a wider set of knowledge or skills to face a complex world.

Join us as we discuss how to encourage a curious mindset within ourselves. Embracing curiosity means embracing a growth mindset rather than a fixed mindset, and then confronting whatever fragility we carry, that prevents us from admitting that we don't know something, and could be better by knowing. Curiosity is critical to building our capacity for caring and understanding others.

Season 1, Ep. 5 - On Connection

Connection is about seeing the common humanity in others. We are all related by this common thread, and when we are out of alignment with this idea of interrelationship, we do a disservice not only to ourselves but the environment we occupy every day.

Join us as we talk about bringing yourself into alignment and then walking in the integrity of your authenticity so that you can connect more fully with others. We crave belonging and connection: it forms the basis of society and provides us with the safety and validation we need to openly embrace our stories and experiences of others.

Season 1, Ep. 6 - On Courage

Courage isn't just bravado. It's living a personal conviction even when it's being challenged. When you act and move with courage, you are making an investment in an outcome that will ultimately be greater than what you went in with. And when we are courageous, we inspire others to take that step for themselves.

Join us as we discuss what courage means to us and things that can make it hard to act and how to overcome them.
