Sebastian Klein: Change Your Behavior, Change Your Business
Play • 36 min

The final episode of Season 6 features a special guest: psychologist, entrepreneur, publisher, ex management consultant and one of Blinkist's original co-founders, Sebastian Klein! 

In this interview, Caitlin and Sebastian discuss how businesses around the world are making changes that transform them from hierarchy, to more effective and people-centered organizations. Sebastian explains why designating roles rather than titles is more empowering, how he determines whether organizations genuinely want to change, and how to have better communication at the workplace. This episode is great for anyone who has identified changes they want to make, and finds themselves asking the question, “but, how?”

A LETTER FROM A HEALTHY HAPPY TO A TROUBLED SAD ME
THIS EPISODE IS ABOUT LIFE AND DEATH, LOSS AND PAIN From time to time, I come up with an episode that is not meant to be for everyone. This one might be one of them. Ladies and gentlemen, this episode is about life and death, including loss and pain. And still, I love this episode.When I started to write it, a thousand words just flew out of my fingers in no time, but for many words, the tears blurred my view. It's about a letter I shall receive when I lose someone I love, or if I become ill or just before my own death. It's the letter from my healthy, happy me to my troubled me. I am aware, that this episode touches ME, because it is about MY life. Why do I publish it? Because you can take this and turn it into yours, by also writing such a letter. At the end of this episode, I will tell you why I think you should do this. A little outtake: "A few words before I read the letter to you: With the pandemic, death and loss come closer, and we struggle. I notice many people lose hope. But not me. And maybe this is what I have to do. Spread a spirit about life, love, compassion, empathy and growth, even in dark times.  I need to hear those voices who spread hope and optimism and if I can be such a voice for you - I'm more than happy to do so. I asked one of my best friends if I should wait to publish this episode and she said: "Are you crazy! There is no good or bad timing for this topic. It can't be that it still is a taboo to talk about loss, death and illnesses. It's going to happen to everyone, and we can't ignore these facts. It will hurt yes. But the sooner we confront ourselves with the difficult moments in life - the more thoughtful we become about them and that's what's missing."" My dear ones out there, we have a winner for a free call, which I announce in the end of this episode. I can't wait to talk to you! Take care! Bye, anna The Member's Club CHECK IT OUT Episode notes:It's all about a letter that helps me to deal with death, loss and pain.  Next zoom speech for Members: 18th (EN) and 19th (DE) of January. All about routines and rituals to stay mentally fit and to achieve your goal.

IN-Q on His Non-Linear Journey of Becoming a National Poetry Slam champion and the Lessons Learned Along the Way - Ep 034
Today’s guest is somebody who inspires a lot of people with his words. His name is Adam Schmalholz, but you may be more familiar with his stage name, IN-Q, which stands for IN-Question. IN-Q is a National Poetry Slam champion, award-winning poet, multi-platinum songwriter, recent first-time author, and one of the most electric spoken word performers on the scene.  In this episode, you’ll discover that his backstory is equally as fascinating as his poems. Listening to this conversation, you’ll find out how he first discovered his gift for poetry in school and how he went on to develop and refine his unique style. You’ll hear about the lean years, when IN-Q had no way of making money as a spoken word poet, when he had to pay for food with pocket change and work odd jobs to survive.  You’ll also learn that, after putting in well over 10,000 hours in writing and performing, IN-Q finally had the opportunity to perform for people like Quincy Jones, Hillary Clinton, and even President Barack Obama. He went on to win awards, get featured on Def Poetry Jam and Oprah's Super Soul 100 List. His spoken word videos have received nearly 100 million views and he has sold out as the largest one-man poetry show in Los Angeles history.  Like most changemakers, IN-Q’s backstory was not linear. All of the ups and the downs played a crucial role in navigating him along his path, and that is what makes his story so compelling – it’s something that we can all relate to. Tune in today to find out more about IN-Q’s incredible journey. Key Points From This Episode: • IN-Q’s favorite toy as a child was a G.I. Joe Snake Eyes action figure, perhaps because mystery makes history. • IN-Q talks about what it was like for him, not having his father around while he grew up. • His natural attraction to subjects that dealt with storytelling in school – like English. • When IN-Q was first introduced to hip-hop and the impact it had on him. • From Will Smith to Run DMC and A Tribe Called Quest – how IN-Q’s taste in hip-hop evolved. • Practicing his freestyle, learning to focus his energy, and the mentor he had at a young age. • What IN-Q’s idea of success was at that age and what he saw himself becoming. • The problem with setting high expectations for yourself and manipulating your truth in order to achieve them. • Freestyle versus written material and the incredible number of poems IN-Q has memorized. • IN-Q’s first rap name, and how he became known as IN-Q thanks to his curious nature. • Hear the story of when IN-Q met his father for the first time – Spoiler alert: It didn’t go well! • How IN-Q was first introduced to Da Poetry Lounge and ended up staying for 14 years. • The differences between music and spoken word poetry and what that shift was like for him. • How IN-Q funded his dreams during the lean years and the obsession that drove him. • Where IN-Q’s philosophical perspective on life came from – that he couldn’t control life, only go along for the ride. • Learn about the incredible support IN-Q received from his community in the early days. • IN-Q talks about his relationship with actor and poet, Omari Hardwick, and how Def Poetry Jam changed (or didn’t change) his life. • What IN-Q has learned from performing for and connecting with strangers versus those who are already familiar with his work. • The importance of setting clear boundaries and asking others to respect them. • When IN-Q says he is still finding his voice, it means that he is ever-evolving and learning. • Where the commentary starts and the poem begins – and why the story is key. • Find out how IN-Q came up with the idea for the cover of his book, Inquire Within. • How the collaborative project, Speakeasy Poetry, came to fruition and what it’s all about.

Chapter 70: Brené Brown on building boundaries and the beacon of bell
3 Books is a completely insane and totally epic 15-year-long quest to uncover the 1000 most formative books in the world. Each chapter is hosted live and in-person at the guest's preferred location by Neil Pasricha, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome, The Happiness Equation, Two-Minute Mornings, etc. Each chapter of 3 Books uncovers and discusses the three most formative books from one of the world's most inspiring people. Sample guests include: Judy Blume, David Sedaris, Chris Anderson of TED, the founder of the world's largest feminist magazine, the world's greatest Uber driver, Pete Holmes, Angie Thomas, and Malcolm Gladwell. Each of the 333 chapters is dropped on the exact minute of every single new moon and full moon until September 1, 2031. 3 Books is an Apple "Best Of" award-winning show and 100% ad-free, commercial-free, sponsor-free, and interruption-free. For more info check out: https://www.3books.co Chapter Description: Leslie and I had just started dating when she sent me a short clip of Brené Brown explaining the difference between empathy and sympathy. Empathy is climbing down into the hole with somebody and saying “Hey, I know what it’s like down here, and you’re not alone.” Sympathy is poking your head in the top of the hole and saying “Ooo! It’s bad, uh-huh!” Brené’s simple-sounding words created such a profound paradigm shift that we still use the line “Come down to the hole with me” in our relationship when we’re looking for deeper understanding (i.e., trying to get out of a fight.) That clip was the beginning of Brené Brown’s incredible work entering our marriage. When we found out we were going to have a baby Leslie printed out Brené Brown’s Parenting Manifesto and put it up on our wall. Leslie took Brené’s Kitchen Table Parenting Classes and we sat together watching her viral TED Talks, The Power of Vulnerability and Listening to Shame. I gave Leslie a copy of Daring Greatly on the day she gave a speech to her old high school and I was lucky to see Brené give a talk at a conference full of A-listers where hers was the only talk punctuated throughout the speech with standing ovation after standing ovation. Her wisdom may sound simple but it just hits you like a ton of bricks. Many of her lessons have themselves become tendons in our relationship including the phrase, “The story I’m telling myself is…” which we use to navigate tough conversations and not lay blame. Her #1 New York Times bestsellers Daring Greatly, The Gifts of Imperfection, Braving the Wilderness, Rising Strong and Dare to Lead grace our shelves and often lie beside our bed. We turn to them again and again. We loved her Netflix special The Call to Courage and her hit podcasts — yes, plural! — Unlocking Us and Dare to Lead featuring a lot of no-name guests like President Barack Obama, Dolly Parton, and President-Elect Joe Biden. I mean: come on! Brené is a North Star to so many. Teachers, CEOs, movie stars, Oprah, and even Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are amongst her legion of fans. She is doing so much good in a world full of anxiety, grief, misunderstanding and miscommunication. She is the beacon we all need. It was a huge privilege to sit down and interview Brené together with my wife Leslie. We loved this intimate and wide-ranging conversation discussing questions like: How do we truly honor our partners? What is the value of ordinary moments? How do we actually operationalize love? And, of course, what are Brené Brown’s 3 most formative books? Are you ready? Please sit back and enjoy Chapter 70 with the one and only … Brené Brown. Let’s go! What You'll Learn: * How do we make time for friends? * How do we find contentment within our sphere of influence? * What does it mean to be spiritually fit? * Why is it so critical to set boundaries with family and friends? * What is the difference between being sweet and being kind? * How can a classroom be transformed into a sacred space? * What does it take to be a great teacher? * What is meant by the phrase “education as the practice of freedom”? * How can we better train teachers to be agents of change? * What is a love ethic? * What is a pandemic of lovelessness? * How can we learn to love?
