034 - Childhood Origins of your Thinking and Behaviour


Our experiences (and interpretations of them) shape the way we see ourselves and the world. A lot of these patterns are established during our childhood and lead us to reach powerful conclusions about ourselves which impact the way we think and behave. In this episode of the Culture Bites Podcast, Shaun McCarthy and Dominic Gourley talk about how these patterns take shape and how you can proactively shape them in constructive ways.

S+T=R (Situation + Thinking = Response) is a concept we introduce during accreditation and when we talk about the Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI), but what does it mean and how does it relate to the LSI? Dominic Gourley and Head of Consulting Corinne Canter explain the concept and share a useful resource for working with your own LSI feedback.

We share some frameworks, language, tips and techniques to handle difficult conversations in a constructive way. Often, people want to ‘do Constructive’ but just don’t know how. These tips will help get you started and stop avoiding those difficult conversations.

082 - Explaining and Changing the Perfectionistic Style

Following on from one of our past episodes about the Self-Actualising style, we’ve had some requests to delve into the Perfectinistic Style.
