PODCAST EPISODE 32: KIMBERLY FLOOD | RTB COACHES' CORNER





In this episode of the Raise The Bar Coaches’ Corner, Coach Kimberly Flood discusses how to cultivate resilience to meet the challenges of an uncertain world in both yourself and your team. Kimberly is a transformational coach and organizational development consultant with nearly two decades of Fortune 500 work experience, who weaves her passion for environmental sustainability and resilience building into her work.


Here are my three big takeaways from the conversation:

  1. We have a choice in how we choose to react to situations, especially those we cannot control.

  2. Being open and mindful to what you are feeling is an important step in becoming more resilient.

  3. Creating a safe space for your team allows them to be vulnerable and have a growth mindset.


I know you’ll find this episode thought provoking and inspirational!

TRANSCRIPT


Kimberly: When folks come with a challenge and they talk to me about, the behaviors they are working through or their current coping mechanisms, I often ask, well, how, how is that working for you? How's that serving you? And almost always, they say, well, it's not. And so the opportunity being offered in that question is a space to say, are you ready to make a change?


Aaron: Hi, I'm Aaron Levy and I have this vision of workplace where your manager doesn't suck or instead your manager is your coach helping you to reach your full potential.


I founded Raise The Bar, wrote Open, Honest, and Direct, and started this podcast to help companies transform their workplace into a place for both the company and employee succeeds. In this podcast, I get to interview leaders who build high-performing teams and learn from them and what it takes to unlock a team's potential.


In today's episode of the Coach's Corner, our head of marketing, Tina, talks to coach Kimberly Flood. Kimberly is a transformational coach and organizational development consultant with nearly two decades of Fortune 500 work experience, including business management, consulting, organizational effectiveness, change management, and corporate responsibility consulting. Today, she's thrilled to continue weaving her passion for environmental sustainability and resilience building into her work.


I know you'll find many nuggets of wisdom in this episode. Enjoy.


Tina: Hi, Kimberly. Thanks for joining us today. I'd like to start off by having you tell us a little bit about yourself - your interests, your coaching philosophy.


Kimberly: Awesome. Thanks so much, Tina. I'm thrilled to be here. A bit about myself. Okay. So I like to think of myself as a transformational coach, and that comes from my context in history and business management consulting, supporting organizations through transformational change. A couple of years ago, I shifted into this space of coaching.


Tina: We know that in this kind of a changing world, but that also applies to starting a new business, taking a new position, having children, a lot of different things that are going to be uncertain and that we cannot necessarily control in our lives. So what I would ask you is, as a leader, what kind of tips would you give to someone to build resilience in their selves and in their teams?


Kimberly: Yeah. I think resilience is, you know, it's, it's kinda as buzzword, but it's a really important concept. Right. And for our listening audience, just to make sure we're all talking about the same thing, what I'm talking about today is this concept of resilience being a process, kind of to adapt and how you show up in the face of adversity and stress.
