Replay: Breaking Down Emotional Labour & Adaptability with Sam Thiara

REPLAY – Originally aired July 20, 2021: How can you implement Sam Thiara’s C.A.R.E. principle into your practice to avoid feeling overwhelmed during the pandemic? 

In this episode, I am joined by Sam Thiara, a professional who has created a personal journey as a storyteller, writer, mentor/coach, problem solver, educator and entrepreneur.  His goal is to engage individuals in their personal and professional development and was recognized by the Governor General of Canada for his work.  Over the years, he has mentored hundreds of individuals and engaged. Added to this are the 45+ non-profits that he has worked with over the years.


Presently, Sam is the Founder and Chief Motivating Officer at Ignite the Dream Coaching and Consulting, a platform that engages his audience to define their path.  A key element is transformational practices where he is an expert in youth career coaching and supports teams and organizations in corporate alignment.  He co-founded a youth career platform that has gone nationwide.


He is a lecturer at the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University where he blends academic and professional experiences into a rich environment that captivates his audience.  Finally, he is an accomplished and sought after speaker and has two TEDx talks to his name and speaks at conferences, seminars and workshops about 30-35 times a year.  Added to his speaking is the book he recently wrote a book called, ‘Lost and Found: Seeking the Past and Finding Myself’.  It focuses on his journey to India to find his ancestral roots with little else than a faded photograph and determination.  The book is also about realizing one’s cultural identity because many struggle with understanding who they are.
