TCZ Episode #117: Dr. Paul White: How to Keep Teams Feeling Valued in a Remote Workplace
In an agile and less hierarchical world, teams are ever more reliant on motivating each other over and above relying on their team leader. Appreciation is one of the fastest ways to make someone feel valued but we don't all speak the same language. Especially at a time when most are working remotely and having to dig deep to build team resilience. My guest today really does have the data to help teams and organizations to get this right. Dr Paul White is a psychologist, leadership trainer and co-author of the Five Languages of Appreciation at Work based on the international best seller by his co-author Gary Chapman on The Five Love Languages.

TCZ Podcast Episode #116: Kathryn McCusker: How To Stay Connected in The Face of Disruption
Have you had moments during lockdown of getting trapped in your head and wanting to rationalise what's going on rather than be in your heart? I certainly have. Yet to coach effectively and to be a transformational presence for others, we know we must stay connected to our feelings. Only when we have processed our feelings can we find our creative response. Creativity is what many of the organisational leaders I've been coaching over the past couple of weeks are looking for from themselves and their people as they move beyond a crisis response to reimagining the future of work.
My guest this week on The Team Coaching Zone podcast is not a coach. Kathryn McCusker is a kundalini yoga teacher, professional opera singer and author. I've been going to Kathryn's classes for awhile now and each time I leave the studio feeling deeply connected to myself and the world. In this episode Kathryn shares practical techniques which you can do working from your home office to access your personal creativity. We talk about the science behind Kundalini yoga and the impact different breathing techniques and mantra meditations have proven to have on enhancing brain functioning as well as managing our emotional state.
I hope you have fun with this one!
