In this episode, Mike Sedam talks with Glenn Garnes about one of the biggest issues people face today: isolation.

Even though we may have the technology to connect, people can still feel isolated. Communication is the key to countering isolation.

Glenn also talks about how people can live their best life by becoming self-aware and taking action to reach their goals.

Mike Sedam talks with Deb Falzoi of Dignity Together about workplace bullying and workplace abuse.

This is an epidemic in organizations that can have a major impact on workplace experience. As a result, people can feel marginalized and isolated. Organizations can see a lack of productivity, an increase in health-related issues, and can even open themselves up to liability.

People are the most precious resource a company has, and understanding the issue of workplace bullying is the first step in improving the workplace and protecting employees.

Dolores Hirschmann talks to Mike Sedam about the importance of clarity, people, and ideas.

In this episode, we talk about the boundaries set within our own minds. This makes us stay within our safety zone which doesn't help people meet external success. Getting beyond those "fences" helps us excel.

Big ideas can overwhelm us or seem too big to tackle, but when people commit to the idea, they can overcome internal boundaries. Nothing starts big, it starts with someone saying yes and consistently taking action.
