Maxed Out and Exhausted? It Could Be Empathy Fatigue.

Julie Potiker

Author, mindfulness expert

Mindful Methods for Life

"Empathy is when you connect with and feel someone else's pain," says Julie. "It's a beautiful way to connect with others, but it gets exhausting because you are in a constant state of giving while not receiving anything back in to fill your own coffers. Compassion is trying to alleviate someone else's pain. Compassion is love in action. When you start to feel tired or drained from giving, that's empathy fatigue. Fortunately, Mindful Self-Compassion can help you overcome it and avoid it in the future."

Julie Potiker is a mindfulness expert with extensive teacher training in a variety of tools and methods, including Mindful Self-Compassion. Through her Mindful Methods for Life program offerings and her book — "Life Falls Apart, but You Don't Have To: Mindful Methods for Staying Calm in the Midst of Chaos" — Julie helps others bring more peace and wellness into their lives.

Is Your Career Potential Growing or Contracting?

Dave DesRochers

Vice President, Partner


"The growth rate of [the career you choose] is important, based on two factors. One, is there going to be a job [in that field] in 6 – 10 years? This is very important to know if you're about to enter college, or if you're considering a transition. … The other thing that's important about growth is, if it's a growing career or a growing field, you're going to have much more opportunity to grow with it and give yourself other opportunities — versus a contracting career, which may be replaced by artificial intelligence, or it may give you very little opportunity for growth."

PATH2™ Vice President and Partner Dave DesRochers has a gift for connecting with people and building mutually beneficial relationships. A former pro football player for the Seattle Seahawks and an exceptional public speaker, Dave shares lessons from life and work with students, community groups, people in career transition, veterans, HR teams, recruiters, nonprofits, and business leaders.

Giving Working Dogs the Retirement They Deserve

Kristen Maurer


Mission K9 Rescue

"Working dogs are an integral part of the efforts American law enforcement, military, and supporting contractors undertake at home and abroad. Sadly, however, many of these dogs end up left at kennels to suffer alone after their usefulness as high-performing working dogs has run its course. Saving as many working dogs as possible helps these heroes have comfortable, peaceful, and loving homes in which to spend the remainder of their lives. Mission K9 Rescue provides a well-deserved retirement for dogs that have given their all in service to people everywhere."

Kristen Maurer is the president of Mission K9 Rescue, an animal welfare group dedicated solely to rescuing, reuniting, rehoming, repairing, and rehabilitating American working dogs.

Their work has been featured numerous times in the national media, including appearances on "America with Eric Bolling" and "Pit Bulls & Parolees." Learn more at www.MissionK9Rescue.org.

Evolving Beyond Performance Walls

Katherine Hosie, M.Sc.

Founder, evidence-based psychology coach

Powerhouse Coaching

"After experiencing considerable success, high-performing CEOs and senior leaders consistently encounter degrees of burnout and a sense of unsustainability for many reasons. They've read all the articles and books, emulated what they've seen elsewhere, and followed the advice of well-meaning mentors, but ultimately what's lacking is their authentic leadership style. What worked for the first half of their career hits a wall as so many of their external, or extrinsic, motivations have run dry, particularly when they've enjoyed considerable success. It becomes time for leaders to discover what will truly drive them heading into the second half of their career: their intrinsic motivation. This challenge is meant to happen, and there are rich opportunities for growth and renewed motivation when it does, but most suffer in silence thinking there's something wrong with them, when there's not. They are exactly where they are meant to be."

Katherine Hosie, M.Sc. (Coaching Psychology) is one of only three coaches in the United States qualified to offer her clients master's-level evidence-based coaching psychology from the University of Sydney, which leads the world in this arena. Visit www.Powerhouse-Coaching.com.

Speaking Out About Miscarriage Helps Others Navigate It

Dr. Alan Lindemann

Obstetric physician and maternal mortality expert

Dr. Alan Lindemann

"Miscarriage is quite common, yet regardless of that simple truth, it remains a challenging and emotionally complex experience for women to navigate. It is often something women deal with privately with their partner, but fortunately some women in the public spotlight have begun to share their experiences more openly. Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, recently opened up about her miscarriage last summer, paving the way for women everywhere to connect and feel less alone. She and Prince Harry also just announced that they are expecting another child — a great reminder that pregnancy is very possible after miscarriage."

An obstetrician and maternal mortality expert, "Rural Doc" Alan Lindemann, M.D. teaches women and their families how to create the outcomes they want for their own personal health and pregnancy. In his nearly 40 years of practice, he has delivered around 6,000 babies and achieved a maternal mortality rate of zero! Learn more at LindemannMD.com.

3 Steps for Building Stronger Relationships

Joey Klein International Corporate Transformation Expert

The Inner Matrix

"1. Name the primary emotion that you feel in the relationship. If the primary emotion is fear-based or negative, [go to step two].

2. Ask what the relationship would look like if the primary emotion you brought to it was loved-based and positive, such as compassion, acceptance, joy, and love.

3. What actions would you take based on changing the primary emotion you feel from a negative to positive one?

In relationships our primary focus goes to micro-steps. What little actions are you taking that compound over time to have a negative or positive impact on your relationship?

When people change the primary emotion in their relationship, it changes the primary emotion they bring everywhere else in life, because they don't have five different emotional selves inside. This primary emotion is what we drive with. So if you change that primary emotional driver, you change your results and your ability to perform."

Joey Klein is the founder and CEO of Inner Matrix Systems, a personal mastery training system for high achievers. He is the author of "The Inner Matrix: Leveraging the Art & Science of Personal Mastery to Create Real Life Results." He has been interviewed by Self Magazine, INC.com, Yahoo Finance, and NBC. Klein has coached leaders from some of the world's top companies, including IBM, Coca-Cola, and the World Health Organization. Learn more at www.innermatrixsystems.com and www.JoeyKlein.com.

Understanding Trapped Emotions

Dr. Bradley Nelson

Holistic physician and author

"When you have an intensely difficult experience, the emotions you feel should fade with time. But sometimes they're just too much for you to handle, and your body may hold onto those negative energies in the form of what many call 'emotional baggage.' We call these Trapped Emotions, and energy healing … may help you release them. This can enable emotional healing and help you feel better after enduring traumatic or difficult emotional experiences, even if they happened many years ago."

Veteran holistic physician Dr. Bradley Nelson (D.C., ret.) is one of the world's foremost experts on natural methods of achieving wellness. He has trained thousands of certified practitioners worldwide to help people overcome physical and emotional discomfort by releasing their emotional baggage. His best-selling book "The Emotion Code" provides step-by-step instructions for working with the body's energy healing power. A newly revised and expanded edition of "The Emotion Code" is now available (May 2019, St. Martin's Press). For more information and a free Emotion Code Starter Kit, visit www.emotioncodegift.com.

Agrihoods Are Farm-centric, Food-centric Neighborhoods

Allison Smith

Founding Partner

Olivette Riverside Community and Farm

"There are a lot of foodies living [in agrihoods]. It encourages people to cook, to swap recipes, to share meals — when we can. Of course, COVID has temporarily interrupted that." Smith notes that using the slow-cooker spices up their lives, with not just that tasty transition from work to relaxation in the evening, but its versatility, as well. "From soups to baked potatoes and stews, it's a wonderful way to prepare a whole stuffed squash or prep your baked potatoes. It's very warm and inviting after being outside in the cold. … A lot of the winter crops tend to be carb-heavy, like potatoes and squash, but they're also really good for you. They're nutrient-dense and high in beta-carotene, potassium, and fiber."

Farm-to-table living expert Allison Smith is a founding partner at Olivette Riverside Community and Farm near Asheville, N.C. The region's first "agrihood," Olivette is built around a four-season organic farm and designed to connect people with nature, community, and their food. Olivette recently won the National Association of Home Builders Best in American Living Award for Best Green Community. Visit www.olivettenc.com.
