How To Hack Human Behaviour | Susan Ibitz - Part 1

How To Hack Human Behaviour | Susan Ibitz - Part 1

November 16, 2020

Susan Ibitz is a HUMAN BEHAVIOR HACKER who was told by her professor that she would never succeed as a Human Profiler. He said this because Susan is highly dyslexic (almost functionally dyslexic).  She’s also a Jewish, Latina who speaks with a strong accent and poor English grammar. He said the good news was that she was “kind of hot” and suggested she focus on getting the right kind of husband.

 

Today Susan is a speaker, trainer, and internationally recognized human behavior expert who is on a mission to help people unlock the science behind human behavior to get more of what they want at work and in life.  Known as the “Human Behavior Hacker,” & ” Human Polygraph” Susan teaches people how to read nonverbal human behavior—body language, face reading, and micro-expressions—and how to use it to decode other people’s hidden emotions, intentions, and future behavior.

 

She helps people and brands use these same skills to improve sales, team productivity, employee engagement, and more. Some of the organizations she and her team have worked with are PayPal, Target, and S.C. Johnson.

 

She’s been trained by the CIA, the FBI, the U.S. Military, the Israeli Military, and is a certified Level III Hostage Negotiator. She also worked as a political consultant for 18 years.

 

In Part1 of my Feature Interview with Susan she:

  • Explains how she found the strength to push through the early criticism
  • Shares a bit of her family history including her grandmother’s escape from Auschwitz 
  • Tells us how she can tell if a person is lying and gives us some tips we can use ourselves
  • Says that most of us are so busy rushing through life that we're missing the little pieces that complete the picture of the people around us
  • And talks about the influence of our parents and grandparents on our personalities.

 

If you’re looking for perfect English you will be disappointed. If you’re up for an awesome learning experience, this discussion is for you. Enjoy.

The World Is Your Playground So Start Playing  | Jeff Harry - Part 2

The World Is Your Playground So Start Playing | Jeff Harry - Part 2

November 11, 2020

Jeff Harry gets paid to teach adults how to have fun. 

 

Jeff has worked with companies such as Google, Microsoft, Southwest Airlines, Adobe, the NFL, Amazon and Facebook, helping their staff to infuse more play into the day-to-day. 

His playwork has been featured in media across the United States including the New York Times, the SF Chronicle, CNN.

 

Jeff says that while we spend most of our time pretending to be important, serious grownups, it's when we let go of that facade and just play, that the real magic happens. Fully embracing our own nerdy genius — whatever that is — gives us the power to make a difference and change lives.  

 

In Part 2 of this feature interview Jeff:

 

  • Challenges us to go back in time and to remember the things we most loved doing when we were children
  • Tells us how we can use those memories to help us identify what we really want to be doing as adults
  • Talks about what it feels like to be in a state of flow
  • Reminds us that we can’t play when we’re in a fearful or angry state
  • Explains why the concept of work life balance is a myth
  • Challenges us to see the world as a playground where we get a chance to experiment
  • And much more

Black Owned Businesses Need More Than Words

Black Owned Businesses Need More Than Words

November 5, 2020

This is Part 2 of my Feature interviews with Muyinza Kasiyre. 

Born in Uganda, Muyinza emigrated to Canada at the age of 5.  After losing his mother to cancer, Muyinza and his family relocated to Boston, Massachusetts, where he began making his music. Surrounded by drug and gun violence in his new neighborhood, Muyinza decided to stay inside and make music. In 2014, he made his most life-changing investment.  He moved back home to his father’s house, worked 80 hours a week for a year, and was able to save $20K. He then took that money, moved to L.A. and invested it into an e-commerce business.  That business went on to earn him $700K over the next 4 years!  He then started a Digital Media company made up of all black individuals from diverse backgrounds that have combined their skill sets to produce world class results.

 

In Part 2 of this Feature Interview Muyinza talks about the problems and struggles faced by black entrepreneurs and business owners today. Warning. Muyinza didn’t pull any punches here in calling out those of us who are, in his words, long on talk and short on action. He also speaks about things white people can do to be better allies to their black colleagues. In speaking with Muyinza I found myself wanting to help, and after our on air conversation I reached out to people in my network that I thought may be able to help. I would encourage all if you to do the same.

Know What You Want And Own Your Choices | Heather Moyse - Part 2

Know What You Want And Own Your Choices | Heather Moyse - Part 2

October 28, 2020

This is part two of my interview with Heather Moyse. Heather is a remarkable woman on so many levels. She is a multi-sport national athlete (bobsleigh, rugby, cycling), Olympic Champion, humanitarian, inspirational speaker, and a published author. Heather is a 4-time Olympian and 2-time Olympic gold medalist but is not your typical Olympian. She didn’t grow up dreaming of going to the Olympics. In fact, Heather didn’t start taking the sport seriously and lifting weights until she was 27 years old. Remarkably she competed in her first Olympics five months later. 

 

Heather, who is from the small Prince Edward Island town of Summerside has been described as Canada’s best ever all-round female athlete. And yet while her sport bio is elite I made an instant connection to Heather when I heard her speak about the importance of living a life that aligned with her values. Heather is also the author of Redefining Realistic, where she inspires and educates all of us on how to shift our perspective, seize our potential, and own our story.

Eps 296 Purpose Always Comes Before Your Why | Brant Menswar - Part 2

October 21, 2020

This is part two of my interview with BRANT MENSWAR. Brant has been recognized as one of the country’s “Top 10 Motivational Speakers,” an author, an award-winning musician, podcast host, and the CEO and founder of Rock Star Impact, a boutique agency that teaches people and organizations how to cultivate values-based leadership.

 

His newest book, titled Black Sheep, uses the analogy of a black sheep to drive home the importance of defining and honoring your non-negotiable values. The book is a short, funny, read that challenges all of us to do the hard work that is needed to live a life that aligns with the things we value. Amen to that because that is what the Screw the Naysayers movement is all about.
