#47: The Thankfulness Special

Victoria is recording from Atlanta where everything is stopping for the celebration of Thanksgiving. We take the opportunity to dig into this tradition, calling Victoria’s american colleague Susan Hall who tells us all about southern Thanksgiving traditions. For all of us new to the tradition we share ideas how to make it your own, AND – is it true that the emotion of gratefulness cannot be shared/felt at the same time as negative emotions? We also give some brilliant ideas how to include meditation in your life, and Susan share her alphabet method.. We hope you enjoy!


#46: Change your Questions; Change your Life

Can the questions we ask determine the focus of our life? We think so! Victoria shares some of the secrets that have been key for her (successful!) career – and we discuss how you can apply it to your career, in your leadership roles, and in your life overall. Josefine shares the questions that the UN should be asking – we share an empowering mantra for when there are no answers, and we discuss the disempowering questions that we could all ditch! To this episode you can download our pepsheet available from www.roosandshine.com and work through which questions you should start including in your next team meeting, in your morning routine and in your career!
