    Embracing Tension to Create Real Collaboration with Everyday Innovator Chris Chopyak

    42:37

    Navigating change can be really challenging. Often it's the tension created when working with others that stops us from moving forward. In an effort to avoid conflict, it seems easier to just give in or meet in the middle. But, as Everyday Innovator Chris Chopyak explains, that tension can actually be an advantage if you lean into it. Chris also talks about predictability, not as an opposite to change, but as a tool to help people embrace change.  Chris also shares wisdom around what you can (and can't)control versus what you can influence, and how she manages her energy so she continues to innovate and do good work. Chris is the founder of Arlosoul, a visual strategy and innovation firm and Elite IQE Certified Coach. She has spent years moving her business and her clients forward through change and uncertainty.  Chris's Everyday Innovator style: Instinctual Risk Taker Connect with Chris on LinkedIn Check out Arlosoul Check out our sponsor Howdy Puppy Discover your Everyday Innovator Style Everyday Innovators Digital Magazine Everyday Innovators Online Facebook Group Innovation is Everybody’s Business Book

    Stop Negotiating with Yourself to Live Up to Your Full Potential with Everyday Innovator Sergio Nazzaro

    37:04

    Do you ever feel like you struggle to achieve your goals or get frustrated because you can't seem to stick to a plan? I think today's conversation with Everyday Innovator Sergio Nazzaro is going to shed some light on this. He's a real estate agent in Denver, Colorado who has done a phenomenal job elevating his own life, differentiating himself in a very noisy marketplace, and delivering real value in a commoditized industry. He shares how the moment he got "sick of his own sh**" and stopped negotiating with himself was the moment he changed his life. He shares his insights around who you should be competing with to get better (hint - it's not other people), how you should be in the benchmark, not the comparison game, and his expectations around failure. Also, listen for his views on turning your life circumstances into your greatest superpowers. As a real estate agent, MBA and veteran, Sergio Nazarro shows us how your principles and commitments to yourself are what matter if you want to leap forward.  Sergio's Everyday Innovator style: Inquisitive Instinctual   Connect with Sergio on LinkedIn Check out our sponsor, Howdy Puppy Discover your Everyday Innovator Style Everyday Innovators Digital Magazine Everyday Innovators Online Facebook Group Innovation is Everybody’s Business Book Connect with Tamara on LinkedIn or join the innovator Facebook group to listen in live and have the opportunity to connect.

    Obsessing About Your Frustrations is the Key to Innovation and Success with Everyday Innovator Jacob Weinstein

    39:43

    It's easy to get complacent, even about the things that frustrate us the most. We simply accept them as part of life. But, as today's guest Everyday Innovator Jacob Weinstein shows us, there's no room for complacency. In fact, the "there's got to be a better way" moments are the foundation for innovation and opportunity. Jacob figured out how to solve some of the biggest frustrations and challenges that face both practitioners and patients in healthcare. In this episode, Jacob shares his journey from frustration to opportunity, how solving problems that we assume can't be solved or simply accept as part of life is the key to success, and how he views innovation as figuring out the bridge between your idea and your client or key-stakeholders needs. As you'll hear, in his eyes there's a powerful bridge between the two that hold the key to moving forward. Jacob also talks a lot about the need for real listening and empathy in daily business.  Jacob's Everyday Innovator style: Inquisitive Risk Taker Connect with Jacob on LinkedIn Check out MedicalEdNow Check out Mobile Care   Discover your Everyday Innovator Style Everyday Innovators Digital Magazine Everyday Innovators Online Facebook Group Innovation is Everybody’s Business Book Connect with Tamara on LinkedIn or join the innovator Facebook group to listen in live and have the opportunity to connect.
