In this episode we are joined by Coach and fellow OD practitioner, Karen Mack to take a deep dive into the art of listening. We explore our own barriers to really listening, why listening is the foundation for building relationships and how listening may be one of the most effective tools we have for healing and moving forward from this pandemic and the racial tensions it has brought to the surface.
In this episode Priya and John convene a conversation with Walt Hopkins, writer, teacher and longtime journal keeper to discuss the topic of journaling. This conversation provides several tips and tricks for “how to journal” for those new to this technique. Walt, Priya and John share personal stories about how journaling has supported them throughout their lives.
Questions worth asking here might be “what’s the conversation I’m having with myself right now?”, “what’s the conversation I’m not having with myself right now, what’s that about?”, “which conversations am I stopping myself from having”, “what can’t I say out loud right now, and why?”
This episode we are joined by OD and Gestalt practitioner Maureen Ghirelli to talk about the concept of Multiple Overwhelmings and how breathing into your belly can help.
A great episode for people feeling overwhelmed by life in the pandemic and looking for help to understand what's happening and what they can do to re-anchor themselves.
For those who would like to have a go with the breathing exercise we are including a link to “Breathing Technique” a short video created by Pilates teacher, Phil Nuttridge, in the early days of the C-19 lockdown. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=puhfQbmNjxY&feature=emb_logo

Welcome back to our regular listeners and a warm welcome to our new ones. We are back for Season 3 where we will be focussing on creating a time capsule of lives lived during the pandemic, as seen through the eyes of OD practitioners around the globe.
Our focus this season is on sharing questions and tools that can be used by anyone to help process their experience during this time of our lives. As always the conversations are raw, honest and filled with questions for you to reflect on.
This episode is a short check in followed with our intentions for this season 3, we look forward to being with you through this experience.
Thank you so much for all your feedback and support during our first two seasons! Due to a few personal / business reasons we will be taking a break for a while.
Here is a short episode so you can find out what we've been up to (life changing news!), how we've come to our decision, the question we had to ask ourselves and what we would love to happen whilst we are away.
We shall be back next year with more Questions Worth Asking!
In this final episode of Season 2, Priya and John demonstrate the 4 L's retrospect tool by looking back at Season 2. They discuss how they may be heading towards separate paths with where they want QWA to go (watch this space). They also appeal to leaders who don't invest time in looking back and capturing learnings by presenting the value and potential benefits of this retrospect tool as a way of bringing teams together.
A great episode for leaders looking for a practical demonstration of how to run a retrospect session.
In this episode Priya and John are joined by Katherine Woods from Meeting Magic to talk about the difference between being in a meeting and meeting each other as human beings.
As painfully predictable as meetings can be, Katherine offers us hope that there is a different way to meet each other as people and highlights the practical business value.
In this episode Priya and John take a step out of the world of work and social change and visit the world of health coaching. We are joined by Jennie Kruze, Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach who offers us some poignant questions about whether we are treating the patient or the disease when we intervene with clients. A great episode for those interested in their own health and want to take a more wholistic approach.
In this episode Priya and John continue the conversation with Ed and Peter Schein to explore the relevance of Humble Leadership in today’s digital age. We discuss the importance of emotionally engaging experiences at work and the magic of Silicon Valley. This is the second of a two part episode.
