||Clean#7. Graham Brown on crafting the Lush Life: love, development of self, & excellence||Hey there. Welcome back! Thanks for joining me for my conversation with Graham Brown, Director of Manufacturing for Lush Cosmetics. This interview is a little bit different but completely amazing. We end up speaking quite a bit about Graham’s commitment to the happiness and well-being of his employees and passion for making Lush an ethical and sustainable brand. Graham was Lush North America's first employee, managing all Lush operations this side of the Atlantic out of his dorm room in Vancouver right from delivery of raw ingredients to hand pressing bath bombs. As the business grew, so did his portfolio. He took on his current role in 1999 and now leads a team of over a thousand people. This is a great conversation with tons of very practical takeaways that offer a granular look at how to apply techniques I talk about on a regular basis. So, let's dive into this chat with my inspiring friend, GRAHAM BROWN.||10/16/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#6. Dr. Ellen Choi on The Art and Science of Mindfulness||Hello! It's great to be with you. One of the most downloaded episodes of my first podcast season was with Dr. Ellen Choi who did her PhD on the benefits of mindfulness and meditation for business. I thought it would be a good idea to bring her on the show again. In this interview, I get an update from Dr. Ellen about her research into the effects of mindfulness training on attention and emotional regulation, authenticity, resilience and performance under pressure. Dr. Ellen graduated with an undergraduate Commerce degree from Queen's University before pursuing a Master of Science at the London School of Economics and a PhD at the Richard Ivey School of Business. She has also worked in commercial real estate and is a trained yoga instructor and executive meditation coach. She has been a wonderful resource in my life, so I am really proud to share this latest interview with my friend, a fascinating individual, DR. ELLEN CHOI.||10/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#5. Jake Thompson on Compete Every Day||Greetings, Podcast Universe! I am really excited about today's show on which I speak with Jake Thompson, a specialist in the area of competition. In my mind, competition is a primary way to motivate ourselves to achieve more in life. I grew up in the crucible of competitive swimming, and the skills I learned have led to almost everything I've been able to achieve. Jake helps teams establish a competitor's mindset because he believes it’s the path to becoming resilient, pursuing your passion and smashing your goals. Jake is a popular speaker and also the Founder and Chief Encouragement Officer at Compete Every Day. He started selling T-shirts out of the trunk of his car in 2011 and is now distributing globally through retailers and his online store. A native of Texas, he's a graduate of both Texas Christian University and the University of Dallas. He is also the youngest strategic advisory board member at the University of Dallas's College of Business.||10/2/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#4. Dr. Greg Wells on Superlearning, Focus & Overcoming Digital Addiction||Hello everyone! It’s great to be with you. Today, I want to share an interview I did with Jonathan Levi on his Becoming Superhuman podcast. Jonathan is an extraordinary guy, and the interview was full of insights as we talked back and forth about human performance. A bit about Jonathan: after successfully selling his Inc. 5,000-rated startup in 2011, Jonathan spent time in Israel, where he enlisted the help of speed-reading expert and university professor Anna Goldentouch and machine learning expert Dr. Lev Gold. These two tutored him in speed-reading, advanced memorization, and other mental performance techniques. Jonathan applied these techniques during his MBA at INSEAD and saw incredible results. He was overwhelmed by the interest his classmates showed in his superlearning skill set, so he decided to pursue the field full time. Since then, he has become a proficient lifehacker and industry-leading guru in the optimization of processes such as travel, sleep & language learning.||9/25/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#3. Alex Hutchinson on the Science of Peak Performance||Welcome back! Thank you so much for joining me on my podcast. Today, we have the opportunity to interview a really incredible person who's become a pretty good friend of mine. Alex Hutchinson is an author, scientist and journalist who has an incredible knack for deconstructing and translating knowledge about the limits of human performance. He has produced fantastic articles for magazines like Outside and Running World, and his latest book is amazing. Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance has a forward written by Malcolm Gladwell. Alex explores our capacity to endure because he believes it underlies great performance in any field, ranging from sprinting to ultra-marathoning, summiting Everest, aceing a final exam and completing a difficult project at work. The question Alex obsessively explores is one that I constantly ask myself: What are we actually truly capable of achieving? So let’s dive into this complex and fantastically fun interview!||9/11/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#2. Dr. Brynn Winegard on the Neuroscience of Brain Performance & Health||Hello podcasters! It's great to be with you. Today, I interview Dr. Brynn Winegard, an award-winning professor, speaker and brain expert. I'm psyched about this interview because I'm really interested in how we can couple everything we know about positive psychology with cutting-edge neuroscience to improve mental health and performance. Dr. Brynn is formally educated in neuroscience, psychology, and marketing and strategy, including a BSc, MBA and PhD. On top of her training and research, she also spent a decade in corporate marketing working for organizations like Pfizer, Nestlé and Johnson & Johnson. While she retains faculty positions at the Schulich School of Business, The DeGroote School of Business and the University of Guelph, Dr. Brynn has now dedicated herself to a speaking career helping groups, organizations and companies learn to build better brains. She is a world-leading expert in neuroscience and in the intersection of business and brain science.||9/6/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#1. US Navy pilot & Blue Angel John Foley on #GladToBeHere||Welcome back! John Foley's personal path to high performance began as a child when he stood alongside his father at an air show featuring the Blue Angels. From that moment John knew that someday he'd be carving up the skies as a member of the Blues. Eventually he lived that dream. But getting there wasn't easy. In fact, John's journey from an awestruck child at an air show to the cockpit of the Blue Angels F-18 Hornet -one of my favorite planes - is a study in persistence, hard work and the will to overcome obstacles and setbacks. John graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy with a degree in mechanical engineering. John was a top 10 carrier pilot six times before becoming a Marine instructor pilot and a Blue Angel. He holds a Master’s degree in Business Management from the Stanford Graduate School of Business where he's a Sloan Fellow and he has an International Policy Studies degree also from Stanford University and he has a degree in strategic studies from the Naval War College.||9/4/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
