If you find yourself overwhelmed by juggling the different demands, challenges, opportunities, + interests in your life, this episode will give you hope. As a wife, mother of four young kids, pastor, national speaker, writer, and justice advocate, Susie offers her own messy story as a way to pursue wholeness. Instead of looking at the multiple callings of our life like they’re competing for our attention, shift your mindset to view them as you would circuit training. We talk about “having it all” and offering a better word than “balance” to navigate life’s tensions. Susie is wicked smart, humble, and wise as she opens up about all things in partnership, rhythms, and paying attention to warning flags. You’ll manage your own life tension with more grace after listening to this spiritual leader.

The Enneagram is the most transformative tool we’ve both ever used in life + leadership (and we’ve used a lot of them)! In this episode we identify why it’s more than a personality or self-awareness assessment, and describe one opportunity and one warning for each type. If you’re new to the Enneagram, your curiosity will be peaked as we reveal how the opportunities and warnings play out in real life. If you’re a leader, you must listen to this for your own self-leadership, but also so you can lead those around you from a healthier place.
Here’s our best Enneagram recommendations:

We're back! It’s the beginning of Season 3! As we kick off this season I'm taking you behind the mic with my brother from another mother, producer Michael Yoder, Founder of Truth-Work Media. We talk a bit about the impetus for starting The Global Fringe (HINT: it involved me getting fired) and a sneak peek about what’s coming this season.
Every episode this season will focus on guiding you toward wholeness in life + leadership in partnership between men + women. I grill Michael about what both wholeness + partnership looks like in his own life + leadership, especially as a privileged white man. I also spill the beans about the phenomenal guests coming this season. Welcome back, friends!

We’re wrapping up Season 2 with this special episode! Season 2 has been focused around the big idea: DREAM BIG; DO THE WORK. At the end of the episode April also personally answers the three questions she's asked every guest this season.
Chances are, if you've been paying attention and have leaned into this season, it's provoked a realization that you are not where you want to be. That self-awareness is a great first step. But self-awareness can create the illusion of transformation. Knowing something to be true about yourself doesn't actually change that truth.
In this season’s final episode, I share three transformational resource ideas to help you move from where you are to where you want to be. Find out more about them and register below:

When you’re a high performing leader contributing important work, doing what matters internally and in your work matters a great day. Leaders, activists, and helpers are known for getting things done, but doing the internal work so you can sustain the external work is vital to lead with wholeness. Jeremy Del Rio is a failed youth pastor, former lawyer, and current Founding Executive Director of the Thrive Collective in New York City. In 1998 as a 21-year old, he took on Mayor Rudy Guiliani as he battled for the educational rights of kids in his community. For the last 20+ years, Jeremy has been listening to the needs of his community, creating a plan, and doing the hard work to design a new future for the under-resourced in NYC. This episode will enlarge your heart and give you hope for sustainable leadership, even in hard places. BONUS: If you need a simple but effective evaluative tool to measure how you’re doing, ask: “What’s right? What’s wrong? What’s confusing? What’s missing?”

As one of the most successful social entrepreneurs on the planet, Tara knows the best work leaders can do is their inner work. Five years ago, she began an unwelcomed, “unraveling” journey that led to uncovering deep pain, and yet, the unraveling kept inviting her into freedom. During this pattern interruption, she noticed things that weren’t working for her and began integrating her life – especially her body – in new ways. In this episode, Tara gets vulnerable about how she’s reclaiming her story as a step toward wholeness and models how clarity, courage, and conviction leads us toward our best life. As she’s done the faithful, inner work, she shows how abundance is surrounding us if we will simply shift our mindset.

What got you here won’t get you there. Disruptions and shifts are common for leaders and people committed to their own growth. But, if you’re going to get to where you want to go, you need H.A.B.I.T.S. You need new practices and rhythms to make room for growth in your life. Willpower, goals, and good intentions aren’t good enough. Yet there’s solace as we grow because as Dr. Goodloe says, “We are all hypocrites in transition. Beneath the beauty, there’s brokenness.” Paying attention to the broken can guide you to toward better ways to do your work. In this episode, we also talk about how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a fringe leader who did a couple of crucial practices to keep his soul and leadership well. If you’re going to design a life you love, you need to do the work that will get you where you want to go.

Self-reliance. Narcissism. Striving. Overwhelmed. Powering up. Pushing through. These are all words sometimes used to describe leaders. Leaders on the fringe desperately need to design soul care rhythms, postures, and practices in order to lead from a different place. It is possible to learn the unforced rhythms of grace and find rest for your soul. As a spiritual formation and soul care expert, Mindy Caliguire has experienced both ways of life and has some serious practical wisdom if you want to design a life of wholeness and thriving. In this episode she talks about the difference between self-care and soul care, and what practices leaders need to be well. She identifies the #1 problem for leaders and confronts the narcissism we see in spiritual leaders today. We talk about the “Popeye arm” and what’s necessary to develop soul-saving muscles for the long game.

Let’s talk about set backs and detours. Sometimes even when you intentionally design your life, life happens and you have to first deconstruct and tear down what you've built up until now. What must you do when you’ve had a disruption in your life – like getting fired, being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, or walking away from an unhealthy job? Brooklyn has had to do this at multiple points throughout her life. She’s learned how to course correct so she can live freely. And you can too. In this episode, she talks about the non-negotiables in designing a life that’s fully you. She vulnerably shares about depression, isolation, suffering, and stuckness, not as an end but as a pivot point to move forward. When disruption happens, what got you here won’t get you there and Brooklyn offers specific ideas and holy hope for all of us.

Nancy is a world-class leader because she excels in two critical areas: self-awareness and developing teams. If you’re going to DESIGN a life of meaning and fullness, you need to know yourself and you need a team. No one is self-made and no one can do it alone. Nancy believes leaders need to be the most self-aware people in the room. When they’re not, damage is done. In this episode we talk about what self-leadership is, practices every leader needs to cultivate, and how to have a growing and grounded awareness in our life. We also discuss the essence of team, how to build a great one, and what the greatest team-breaker is. Nancy will leave you wanting more, which is exactly what’s necessary when you design a life of self-aware leadership.
