Episode 39: Light bulb moments with Molly

Join us for a discussion on how to be a better human being and leadership. In the midst of this current chaos, injustice and grief many of us are turning inward doing the work to be better humans to lift up our brothers and sisters who are hurting. We checked in with Molly Grisham, a courageous and compassionate communicator. Molly works in her own business developing people and getting leaders and teams to reach new heights.  We discussed the Myers Briggs Inventory and the Enneagram. We talked specifically how to use those tools to step outside your window of tolerance, learn about yourself and be a better human to help lift up others.

Episode 38: The color of autism 

Please join in on the conversation with Camille Proctor and her discussion on the experience of being a caregiver to her black autistic son. She is also the founder and executive director of The Color of Autism Foundation. The the foundation, she supports autistic families in the African American community.  Black children are far more likely to be misdiagnosed or not dianognsed with autism until much later in life.  This makes it very difficult for black families to get the support they need.  Please consider donating to thecolorofautism.org and support her work locally and globally.
