In the past week there have been four active shooter events in the US. A work place violence situation at a WalMart in Mississippi, the Garlic Festival shooting in California, a shooting at a WalMart in Texas, and the morning of this recording was a shooting an hour away from our studio at a bar in Dayton, OH.
Aaron has spent the last decade learning about and teaching on the subject of Active Shooters. In the last four years he has taught seminars across the country, written a book on the topic, and done numerous podcast interviews. He spends a lot of time talking about this topic.
The following episode is not to give answers or take sides, but more importantly to explore the complexity of talking about this subject. We endeavor to identify issues we have in communication, and try to give insight into how we might have more meaningful conversations to help us begin the journey to truly create some type of positive change.
We genuinely hope you find value in this conversation and look forward to exploring it with you.

This week we break down the book Nonviolent Communication and the process of NVC laid out by the author Marshall B. Rosenberg Ph.D. Don't let the title distract you from the root of the message. The book is about distinguishing between what we observe and how we evaluate, learning to separate judgement from discussion, identifying ours and others needs, and learning how to request what we need to satisfy those needs. The book is very eye opening and one that we have already found value in implementing into our lives and we imagine that you will as well.

In our very first episode we talked about the idea of "What makes you think your thoughts are real?" It's an interesting thought. we often don't realize just how much our imagination shapes our reality. We tend to fill in the blanks with our thoughts that may or may not be true. This can be a gift and a curse. In this episode we talk about three distinguishing between Noticing, Imagining, and Feeling and how these words/concepts are how we shape our reality.

How many times have you thought of doing something, or even said out loud you would do something and just didn't follow through? Are you someone that likes to plan or someone that just gets going? In this episode we discuss the importance of taking action, the issues we run into when we plan and don't do, seeing the big picture goals, the beauty in taking small actions over time, and how Drew and Aaron operate differently in this regard.
We also have a pretty HUGE announcement at the end which we're very excited about so tune in and enjoy!

When you hear the word stereotype, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it negative? Often it is. In this episode we look at stereotypes as a concept. What is the good, the bad, and the ugly of it. How do stereotypes help guide us in business, help create the first impression we desire, help guide the people we look to bring in. In life, how do stereotypes hold us back and effect us. It's a deep topic, but a really great discussion!
