Beyond Coaching
Somatic Thinking

37 | Join Sameer Hassan, MCC as he discusses the philosophy and profound power of Somatic ThinkingTM in coaching. Sameer posits that bodies have their own consciousness; they operate and react before the mind even fully understands what is happening. He offers practical exercises for how you can free your mind from constraints and develop a relationship with your body’s consciousness.By becoming aware of physical sensations – in your body (heat, cold, pressure, lightness), in your surroundings (sounds and smells) – your sensitivity will increase, your vocabulary to describe the sensations will increase. Your body will become your ally, your partner, and your sensations will become an asset in supporting your mental processing, decision making, emotional intelligence, leadership skills, coaching skills and more. Tune in and learn how to “listen to the body when it is whispering rather than when it is screaming in pain.”

How to Think for Yourself

36 | The least evolved part of our brain begins giving us direction in times of crisis. Hardly a reliable guide when calm and rationality should reign! Returning to TNM Unplugged, Senior Coach & Trainer David Papa shares his thoughts with TNM Coaching's Zoran Todorovic, on how you can learn to think for yourself in times of crisis, avoid wide-spread panic and anxiety from the almost daily bombardment of external ideas, opinions, and influences and find direction by simply searching within yourself. Through a bit of brain chemistry and common sense, he suggests we must tap into our “survival circuits” and rewire the messages to our brain. Also listen to our inner voice, heed our intuition, and embrace what we feel inside of ourselves is the right thing to do in any given situation. Always engaging, always from a heart-centered place, David offers guidance on how to block out the noise and hope that the answers to some of life's most challenging questions are simply found within.

Beyond Leadership
Living your values

31 | Join Zoran Todorovic, MCC in conversation with Master Coaches Sabreena Andriesz, PhD, MCC and Nancy Hughes, MCC as they explore how to discover your values and define their importance; how to understand and respect the values of others in light of cultural differences or other nuances; how to distinguish between “terminal” and “instrumental” values; and how to align living your values on all different levels and through many layers of expression –to express a value isn’t only an action, it is also your state of mind and heart behind the action. In this deeply personal podcast, you will be challenged to be honest about why you hold the values you do, how your behavior embodies those values, and how that behavior impacts others. At a time in our history when so many are polarized at this core level, we must be curious, be open with compassion and nonjudgement – to begin conversations and ask ourselves and others, “Why is this important to you? I’m listening…”

The Path of Conscious Leadership

30 | To be a leader in these turbulent times it is tempting to just hunker down and try to survive – to fall back on tried and tested ways of getting through a tough situation. We don’t think too much about who we are being and how we are behaving, we just do our best – kind of like sleep walking. But to inspire and lead others to create results whilst we move to meet this new and uncertain future requires us to be fully awake, to be Conscious Leaders. In this instalment of Beyond Leadership, TNM Senior Coach Isabelle Courtney-Guy in conversation with Zoran Todorovic, invites you to awaken your conscious leader, to step onto a path of daily evolution – to get into right relationship with your purpose, all aspects of yourself, as well as with those who journey with us. Listen to be inspired, energised, brilliant, and ready for action!

 


Beyond Coaching
Presence Embodied

29 | We numb ourselves to being fully present through negative thinking, substance abuse, and binging. We mask and deny our suffering, pain and anxiety and hide from being present to ourselves and for others. We stifle our growth and potential to the detriment of ourselves and humanity. Wake up, come out, and turn inward with compassion and acceptance! This profound podcast with Zoran Todorovic and Stephanie Canavesio (https://www.presenceembodied.com/) explores a multitude of healing modalities, including compassionate inquiry and meditative practices that support you to connect to the present moment to restore you to your truest expression. Practice how to be in the moment, to feel life fully, to experience your full range of emotions with acceptance, and welcome all the parts of you. Realise the power of your attention - on your breath, your heart, your health, your being and others - to become presence embodied.

Spiritual Intelligence and Transition from Victim to Creator

28 | We have within us both “victim” and “creator” consciousness. But what are the choices that can support us to be the creators of our circumstances rather than the victims of them? Is life happening for us or against us? Do we want to awaken through suffering or awaken through choice? And, when given a choice, will we step up and embrace it to be where we need to be next or ignore our options? According to Simon Blackhall, PCC, founder and director of ANIMA, Consciousness Coach, a Keynote Speaker and Teacher, the degree to which we can embrace paradox is the degree to which we will get closer to the truth. In this podcast he joins TNM Coaching’s Zoran Todorovic, MCC to discuss how spiritual intelligence can guide us to an awakened state of mind and how our perspectives and behaviours can move us from victim to creator. Through stories and practical exercises, Simon shares the power of “SOUL”, how to honor the “No”, how to find our center of gravity between these extremes and channel our energy for a greater purpose.

MCC Coach Marcia Reynolds on Challenges with Executive Coaching - Courage

22 | Dr. Marcia Reynolds, MCC, teaches, writes books, and speaks on how to engage in powerful conversations that connect, influence, and activate change. She is a coach’s coach, teaching coaching skills to leaders and coaches worldwide, and an expert in emotional intelligence. Global Gurus names her the #3 coach in the world. One of the greatest challenges for executive coaches is to have the courage to drill down to discover what the client really wants to resolve and what that outcome looks like. It is easy to fall into problem-solving when clients asks for help in planning, strategizing, or decision-making. It’s likely clients can do this on their own if they just took the time. The bigger question is, “What is stopping this smart, resourceful person from achieving their desired result on their own?” This means we have to explore the beliefs that are framing the problem and the needs, values, and fears that are clouding the view of the best solution, even when this creates discomfort. In this discussion Marcia shows how coaches are thinking partners, not problem-solvers and how to help our smart, creative, resourceful and powerful clients expand their thinking so they see better with clarity and confidence.
