Normally on A Life and a Living Podcast, I have a guest that I am interviewing. This episode, however, we are doing something slightly different. Yes, I have a guest. But it is less of an interview and more of a conversation with my friend and colleague, John O’Gorman.
Today’s guest is Rick Maurer. Rick is the president of Maurer & Associates, a consulting firm that provides expertise in implementing strategic and tactical change within the workplace. He is also the author of numerous books, but today we hone in on his most recent publication Seizing Moments of Possibility: Ways to Trigger Energy and Forward Momentum on Your Ideas and Plans which is currently available as a free eBook. It is a thoughtful and reflective book and in our discussion today, Rick explains how we lead people through change and promote curiosity. Listen on to find out how change is crucial and having everyone in the loop on the process is key to success.
My guest today is an utterly fascinating lady who shares insights that answer all of the above questions. As a seller of over 500 companies, Michelle Seiler Tucker is an expert at buying, selling, and fixing companies, and getting them on the buyer’s market. In fact, she has a reputation for selling businesses for way more than they’re worth (and has even written the book on it).
Zulma Reyo is the founder of the Zulma Reyo School of Consciousness and author of Inner Alchemy: The Path Of Mastery, which is available as a free ebook. Today we discuss energy and how to understand its use and relevance in leadership and business. She beautifully explains the importance of changing the way you think and perceive reality and the effect of this shift on your life.
How does mindfulness practice impact us in a business setting? We hear a lot about mindfulness, but how can it be used to better our leadership and management? Today’s very impressive and knowledgeable guest, author Latha Poonamallee, shares just that.
Latha has an incredible combination of interests and expertise as an academic, author, and tech entrepreneur. She is passionate about radical change towards building a more just, equitable, sustainable, compassionate and prosperous world and her work is certainly reflective of that. Latha’s recently published book Expansive Leadership: Cultivating Mindfulness to Lead Self and Others in a Changing World – A 28-Day Program is a structured journey to help aspiring and current leaders to clarify their identities, to identify and reflect on their mental models to become more expansive leaders.
With over 30 years experience in both government and business, today’s guest has helped a myriad of clients navigate the murky waters of federal sales. Gene Moran is a fascinating individual having served in the US Navy in a commanding role of very large ships. While in the Navy, Gene became involved in administration, the political scene, and learned how the whole world of companies selling to government bodies worked. This eventually led to him leaving the Navy and becoming a lobbyist. This transition is an interesting one and his background offers a very unique perspective as he then shifted into setting up his own business helping organizations sell to the government.
