Show Notes

!!EXPLICT LANGUAGE IN ON SECTION!!  “I am honest and live in my truth,” is the affirmation that kicks off this episode, which challenges your answer to the question of who is at your playground? and how do you acknowledge & engage? In a world where judging is often first of mind, assuming is a close second, & fear of our differences oftentimes crowd our space, we talk all about challenging our status quo with a focus on diversity and inclusion.  I gift a bit of coaching (minute 3:00) to challenge your thinking, with a bit of soul work and a story on bullies, enjoy a few cocktails (minute 12:03) to celebrate greatness, then we have some kitchen-table conversations with Mariangela Abeo (minute 13:37), suicide survivor, founder & photographer of The Faces Of Fortitude Project, TEDx speaker, & podcaster.  I ask you again, are you honest and live in your truth?

In coaching, I ask you to imagine there’s a playground right outside of your window. You’ve been wanting to go all day and now is finally your time. You take a glance over and see a host of folks there, some think like you, some you can see differences in right away. What goes through your mind as you decide if you will go over? What biases dance in your head? During cocktails, we give a cheers to you! and conversations take us from childhood to our 40's, self-discovery, being unapolgetic, walking into fear, and even to the Seattle riots where Mariangela shares a story that lays out white privilege on a silver platter right before our eyes.   Who is at your playground and are you being honest and living in your truth?  **Don't forget to subscribe and review!**

"Communication is a "how" we achieve great things in life.  It is not an end in itself."  These are the words from Damon Jones, a kid from Detroit and Chief Communications Officer for Procter & Gamble, the world's largest consumer packaged goods company...to name a few.  Have you ever had a conversation and wondered...hmmmm, how did we end up here?  I know I have.  Damon and I talk everything from his excitement of opening, Nostalgia, a Black-owned wine and jazz lounge in Downtown Cincinnati during a pandemic, to communications in and outside of the corporate space, to even strategies that will help you avoid communication entanglements, whether now or years to come.  Through a few laughs, pointed and transparent dialogue, and my "come as you are" round of questions, we jumped #allin.  You don't want to miss this three-layered, power-episode of Coaching, Cocktails, & Conversations!

S1E8 - How to Journey Forgiveness Freeway (It May Be Bumpy!)

It's a bonus episode on Forgiveness!  Who is forgiveness for? Can you forgive?  Will you forgive?  Forgiveness Freeway is Stop 6 in my book, "The Intersection of You & Change" and this episodes journeys you through the various sections at this stop (chapter). Whether you have my book or it is still on your to-do list, we chat through how we each may better embrace forgiveness, are reminded that forgiveness does not mean "to forget," and we even find a bit of time to craft our own forgiveness story during the conversations portion of this episode.Sometimes we get caught up in the emotions, the hurt, and sometimes even the ego of it all, which hinders our progression forward.  How can we become our best self if we are holding on to the baggage that forgiveness is leaving around?   Forgiveness Freeway is only one of seventeen stops within my book of self-discovery, motivation, empowerment, and both personal and professional growth. From Journey Junction to Gratitude Gateway, this will challenge your thinking today and I am super excited to get right into it!  If you love what you hear, please grab your copy at https://www.lolitawalker.com/the-book.  The affirmation that kicks off this episode is "I am a forgiver and I forgive me first."  Whew! Major right?  It sounds great, yet it's not the easiest thing in the world to do.  Today, I welcome you to the kitchen-table (minute 0:50), gift a bit of coaching & soul work (minute 4:36) to challenge your thinking, enjoy a few cocktails (minute 14:42) to celebrate all of the greatness you are, then we have some good ole fashioned conversations, just you & I (minute 16:36).   In coaching, we hear a poetic acronym (F.O.R.E.G.I.V.E.N.E.S.S.) ...
