COVID-19 and Re-Entering the Work Force with Dr. Leo Flanagan Part 1

Leo Flanagan joins me for two very important conversations about how to successfully navigate the challenges of reentering the workforce alongside COVID-19. Leo introduces us to his 3 pandemic philosophy; the virus, anxiety and economic downturn and how to set up your business for a successful transition.

Leo F. Flanagan, Jr., PhD has more than 30 years of experience in the crafting and activation of business transformations by integrating human capital, innovation, and customer loyalty strategies. He has held senior level corporate positions at Merrill Lynch, Willis Holdings and The Forum Corporation. He consults across a wide range of industries including digital media, consumer goods, financial services, hospitality, healthcare, manufacturing, and technology.

Consulting engagements have ranged from working with PE firms and portfolio companies on turnarounds and accelerations to partnering with global enterprises such as Bank of America, Citi, The Home Depot, IBM, JPMorgan Chase, McDonalds, MMC and UBS to craft and activate strategies to drive revenue growth, engage employees, upgrade talent and deliver the brand.

His brand of business transformation is fast, lean, practical and integrated with – not burdened on – the business. His work produces a true ROI. Double digit increases in revenue, customer loyalty and employee engagement and reductions in cost are trademarks of his leadership. One leading financial services company recently calculated the ROI from his work at 67:1. The CFO of a major bank cited his work more valuable than a $1bn acquisition with an 18% ROE.

Early in his career, Leo was a faculty member at Cornell University’s, School of Industrial and Labor Relations.

115 – Tim Desmond – How to Stay Human Through Compassionate Rage

“I think the most transformative practice that I’ve come across is this ability to see that in all of our responses and reactivity and whatever it is we’re all, deep down, these beautiful animals who wish that they could live in a world in which everyone’s needs were met and everyone loved each other. And we all have that wish. And that’s not the world we live in.” ~Tim Desmond

This is exactly what a planet in “time out” needs: a conversation with someone who can help us make sense of any effed up sitch. In his latest book, How To Stay Human In A F*cked Up World, author and Buddhist philosopher Tim Desmond, LMFT, invites us to peel back the layers that have been papered over of mindfulness practices. 

He helps us dive headlong into the process of self-inquiry, asking us to examine our motivations in hopes that we resurface with a more outward-facing practice. He even gives this Wounded Healer a crash course in compassionate rage – an incredibly helpful sidebar in light of so much pandemic-related dysfunction.

Let the conscious-raising begin! 


Tim Desmond is an esteemed Buddhist philosopher who has lectured on psychology at Yale and leads a mental health project at Google. Despite an absent father, childhood homelessness, and losing a wife to cancer, Desmond has emerged with not only inner strength and joyful resilience, but also a deep understanding of human suffering necessary to advocate for those hurting all over the world. Through his work, Desmond realized the truth: we don’t need a mindfulness practice for productivity or sleep, and it shouldn’t come from religion, philosophy, or hypothetical situations. Instead, mindfulness should be rooted in the pain, sadness, loneliness, and trauma of the here and now, because it is the only true antidote for this sometimes-miserable world we call home.

Grief and Loss during COVID 19 – What if we gave ourselves space to truly feel?

On day 60 something of quarantine to stop the spread of the Coronavirus, Shari and Jann discuss grief and the importance of allowing ourselves to “feel”. In the busyness of our lives, we often distract ourselves from feeling anything that makes us uncomfortable and the problem with that is the inevitable mental, emotional and physical ramifications that befall. During this time, we need to be especially kind and nurturing to ourselves and one way to do that is to allow the feelings to come over us, embrace them and then let them go.

Shari and Jann travel the country (when not quarantined), speaking on their book, Which Way?, mental health issues and the power of our stories.

The Third Epoch with Nanci Danison

The Third Epoch with Nanci Danison Nanci L. Danison, JD, makes her tenth appearance (fifth solo show) on other Outer Limits of Inner Truth to discuss the her vision in the afterlife of the Third Epoch – humanity’s last era of existence on earth. The initial stage of Nanci Danison’s Near Death Experience journey consisted of a step-by-step transition out of human constructs into a natural state of Energy Being with an extensive range of sensory and intellectual abilities. Stage two involved meeting other Energy Beings and sharing with them her just-passed human life, and recapturing her memories from her eons of life. At this stage she had access to the whole of Universal Knowledge. She observed the evolution of planet Earth in three epochs, the second of which is about to end. She then focused her attention on the answers to humans’ most basic metaphysical questions, such as: “Who is God? Who are we?” Immersion/merger into the Energy Beings, and forward progression toward rejoining the Source, was the third stage. The final stage reversed the transition from Energy state to human context and reentry into the body. Websites:  /  Nanci L. Danison, JD, recently retired from practicing law as a health lawyer in Ohio, having been in practice for 36 years, first with a prestigious, Midwestern, 270-attorney regional law firm, and then as a solo practitioner. She graduated from Morris Harvey College magna cum laude with a BA in Psychology and a BS in Biology/Chemistry. Her Doctorate in Jurisprudence is from The Ohio State University College of Law. Ms. Danison has for years been recognized by Martindale-Hubbell’s “Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers” as one of the top 5% of lawyers in the country. Prior to 1994, Nanci devoted her attention to developing a national reputation in the fields of Medicare fraud defense and general health law; served on the Boards of Directors of the National Kidney Foundation of Ohio, Inc. and the Gestalt Institute of Ohio; and represented the local Bar Association on TV interview segments on the Noon News for several years. Nanci now writes books and conducts workshops detailing her memories of an extensive afterlife experience following her death in March 1994. After that experience, Nanci left the security of her law firm and set up her own firm, earned her private pilot’s license, and became a licensed private detective. She continued her community service on the Boards of Directors of The Columbus Cancer Clinic and of National Church Residences. Her beyond death experience provided Nanci with the unique opportunity to view human life from the perspective of one who has transformed into a Being of Light, like the Beings of Light other near-death experiencers encounter. Nanci learned how to consciously manifest reality, hold multiple simultaneous levels of self-awarenesss, access Universal Knowledge on a wide variety of subjects, recognize and experience unconditional love, apply self-healing techniques, and utilize many other abilities natural to us all in our spiritual state. During her afterlife experience, she viewed the history of planet Earth and how religion developed and has been woven into the fabric of human evolution. Just at the moment when Nanci was to merge fully and finally into the Source/God, she decided to return to her body in order to bring back messages of hope and love, which are contained in her various works.
