The challenge is staying conscious and intentional, at all times, in the presence of others. Most of us are only able to do so for brief periods before being interrupted by our inner speech. Today Dr. Andrea is joined by Andrew Newberg, MD, the primary neu...

All relationships have an emotional component. How many companies have we decided to stop doing business with after watching how they treat their employees and customers? Leaders face an urgent need for increased empathy and emotional understanding of their customers and employees, yet these concepts are often not emphasized or neglected. Our understanding and approach to emotions must be altered. Emotions are the drivers of everyt...

People keep telling me they feel they're reliving the same day over and over again. That's because in times of uncertainty we tend to fall back to the past and do what we've known. The question is, how do we stop going backward and switch gears to move forward, toward resilience and thriving, when everything around us feels so out of sorts? Today's guest, Dr. Srini Pillay is an expert in resilience and understanding...

Today, Dr. Andrea reimagines conversation with Canadian kindred spirit and soul sister Kim Barthel. Together they pr...

Have you ever thought about what you do with you voice? You talk, sing, express emotions like love, and surprise, and fear, and anger. You call for direction and you call for help. Think about the many different meanings and required emotional tone differences and levels of required response immediacy with the word "help". How different your tone is when requesting asking assistance on a project, versus needing to escape a ...

Why is it so we are so often cruel to the ones we love?

Today's guest, Dr. Sue Johnson, creator of Emotional Focused Therapy, is continuing to build a science of intimate relationships and mapping how our conversations and actions...

The statistics on those who have experienced trauma are sobering! For reimagining conversation this means we must understand that every person we encounter may have experienced serious trauma. We don't need to question people's experiences; instead we must assume they may have this history, understand what it may mean, and act and speak accordingly. Today Dr. Andrea reimagines trauma through conversation with guest, Dr. Ron...

This week, Dr. Andrea challenges that employee engagement is not a thing. In the 30 years we've been measuring engagement, the number of employees who are engaged is still strongly overshadowed by those who are not.

Just like our incorrect primary focus has been on financials, when it is through our employees that we hit ...
