Collaboration is the Word of the Day

Friday, February 6th, 2009

An interesting conversation with two passionate coaches on the topic of collaboration. In this 12 minute podcast, Coach Betty and Adee Swanson talk about how much more we accomplish when we reach out and collaborate vs. compete with each other.

Adee shares her story of how she made the first meeting with Coach Betty turn collaborative.  Her philosophy is people with similar visions working together is what makes change happen, but that wasn’t her first thought.

What do we need to admit to before we can truly collaborate with each other?  Listen in and find out.

Chaos from the Inside Out

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

Listen to this 10 minute podcast on how to get through times of chaos when it feels like things are falling apart from the inside out.

Enjoy this Tao story which underlines the point that you never know what is really good or bad when things happen.

Who knows what is good and what is bad?

Most of us divide-up our life experiences into those we like and those we don’t. But the Taoist masters teach us to look deeper. In the flow of yin and yang everything is constantly changing into its opposite. The more we live with awareness of the inevitable tides of Tao, the more it seems superficial and misguided to reject some experience and try to hold onto others. It is better to accept the wholeness of life.

A traditional Taoist story illustrates these teachings. When an old farmer’s stallion wins a prize at a country show, his neighbor calls round to congratulate him, but the old farmer says, “Who knows what is good and what is bad?” The next day some thieves come and steal his valuable animal. His neighbor comes to commiserate with him, but the old man replies, “Who knows what is good and what is bad?” A few days later the spirited stallion escapes from the thieves and joins a herd of wild mares, leading them back to the farm. The neighbor calls to share the farmer’s joy, but the farmer says, “Who knows what is good and what is bad?” The following day, while trying to break in one of the wild mares, the farmer’s son is thrown and fractures his leg. The neighbor calls to share the farmer’s sorrow, but the old man’s attitude remains the same as before. The following week the army passes by, forcibly conscripting soldiers for a war, but they do not take the farmer’s son because he cannot walk. The neighbor thinks to himself, “Who knows what is good and what is bad?” and realizes that the old farmer must be a Taoist sage.

Reviewing Your Rulebook from the inside out

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

Happy New Year!

Women on Air invite you to review the rules you have set up for yourself in life. Listen to this 10 minute podcast conversation with Coach Betty and Giles about how to re-write the rules and live the life you were intended to live.

What do we mean by that…listen in and see. We want you to understand that you do live by some rulebook…becoming conscious of what limitations and constraints (the rules) you have set up for yourself allows you to rip those pages of the rulebook out. Then you can replace them with pages of the possibilities and potential that are dying to be expressed.

Start the new year with a redesigned rulebook that will bring you joy, love and inner peace. Change is the word of the year…let’s all work on changing into more peaceful and positives selves to create the world we want!

Joy from the Inside Out

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Coach Betty and Giles talk about what it means to BE in joy in their lives right now in this 5 minute “WOA conversation” podcast. I know you will enjoy the quality of the sound…thank you Mark Lindsey!

In addition, I had an experience with joy this week that I want to share…maybe you will get some of your own ideas from it. I was offered a basket of homemade bookmarks this week which all had the word “joy” stamped on them. As I was offered the basket to choose one, my friend said “choose joy.” She was offering me no other choice. What if we always made that choice?  Is joy just a choice away?

Consider what a joyful life from the inside out would look like for you…it all starts with your vision.

What simple joy can you begin with today?
