Why we Receive Experiences We Don’t Want and How to Change This, with Author & Facilitator, Barry Nicolaou

In this week’s episode, I am joined by Barry Nicolaou, a passionate facilitator of organisational cultural synergy and Best Selling Author. In this enlightening conversation, we discuss why so many of us receive experiences that we don’t want, and how we can change our perspective to have a more positive outlook.  Barry's ability to locate and define his true purpose in assisting others began in 2015. The Inspiration Barry absorbed one fateful day at a cemetery led him to write and publish a #1 Best Selling book on Amazon. His book, The 11 Master Secrets to Business Success and Personal Fulfillment outlines the 11 areas that intersect economic freedom with personal fulfillment.  His forte is in deconstructing the layers beneath cognitive fear, indecision, subconscious paradigms, inherited thinking, habitual thinking and their intimate relationship to real-world expectations and experiences. His presentation on Gratitude Leadership for corporations and numerous mental health programs have been added to his 1-1 work, assisting businesses to take a holistic look at their culture as an 'energy' that feeds straight to the bottom line.    Tune in to this week’s episode to learn: How our beliefs define our experiences & what this means for our thoughts  What pivotal moment changed Barry’s outlook & what it means to truly live ‘your’ life The three key elements that form our decisions & how to focus only on what you can control  Where to start when you feel you have no more to give; physically, emotionally or energetically    Grab your drink of choice and join the conversation!   Sponsor Visit locumstory.com today to learn more about locum tenens and see if it’s right for you: www.locumstory.com   Disclaimer The Healthcare Provider Happy Hour Podcast makes no warranty, guarantee, or representation as to the accuracy or sufficiency of the information featured in this Podcast.

Recognizing Physician Burnout & How To Recover From It, with Dr. Susan Landers

In this week’s episode, I am joined by Dr. Susan Landers, author, speaker & retired neonatologist. Susan enjoys discussing physician burnout, how she got there, and ways to treat & recover from it. Susan is a retired neonatologist who worked full-time in the NICU for thirty-four years and raised three children to young adulthood. She served on the faculty of two medical schools, and served in private practice for over twenty years. She achieved many academic and professional accomplishments, and she also encountered challenges along the way, both in her career and in her mothering. There was one particularly difficult event during her midlife, after the birth of her third child, that she had to endure. However, it propelled her to make choices and career changes.  She loves to tell stories that reassure younger mothers to know that they, too, can be a “good enough mother” especially if they work full-time. She supports mothers with her social media posts and her blog. She also cautions physicians and nurses - who might be experiencing serious burnout – about the ways in which it affects their lives and their relationships, and the many ways to treat and recover from burnout. Her new book is “So Many Babies: My Life Balancing a Busy Medical Career and Motherhood.” We discuss Susan’s own personal journey of experiencing burnout, how she came to recognize it, and how she recovered from it. This experience led her to find her own voice and now works to empower the voices of other physicians on the front lines to find their fulfillment.  Tune in to this week’s episode to learn: How she actually changed her practice to become more family-friendly & flexible The moment Susan noticed her symptoms of burnout & knew something was wrong How we can change the gender dynamic in healthcare practice What she did to recover from burnout over a two-year period  The importance of setting non-negotiables and implementing self-care practices    Grab your drink of choice and join the conversation!   Resources Connect with Susan Website: https://susanlandersmd.com  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drsusanlanders Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drsusanlanders/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/susan-landersmd/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/susanlandersmd Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/susanlandersberry/ Good Reads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/45507615-susan-landers   Connect with Jennifer George: @bestobsessed_with_jenn | Instagram Jennifer George | Website @jenngeorge08) | Twitter Jennifer George | Facebook Click here to check out my book about connecting and communicating with patients to empower their experiences!
