46. (S2E10) Empathy For Your Inner Child with Steven English

My guest today is Steven English. Steven and I are talking about the effects of working in a toxic environment – and boy does he have some stories. We’re also discussing his recovery journey, letting go of emotional burdens and how to find empathy for yourself.

I think you’ll also see a recurring theme with this season’s guests. If you don’t pick it up on your own, I’ll tell you what it is in the takeaways.

Steven is an ICF Professional Certified Coach, a TEDx speaker, and a trained Facilitator. He specializes in helping introvert leaders find their voice so they can create impact and leave a positive impression without having to pretend. He works with one-on-one coaching clients as well as big corporate clients.

He’s also the founder of multiple Toastmasters public speaking clubs.

In his former life, Steven was as an engineering manager and served as a trainer to Fortune 500 organizations, where he influenced and managed company-wide change management activities.

Today’s episode is sponsored by Zen Rabbit. You hear a lot about the Great Resignation lately and that’s not happening so much because people simply want more money. Studies show it’s because they want to work in a culture that values them and thinks holistically about their happiness and well-being.

This is where the F*ck Being Fine program for companies comes in. Through it, managers and their teams learn how to stay calm and grounded no matter what. It’s designed to move participants to stop pretending everything’s fine when it’s not. And inspire them to upgrade how they respond to stressful situations.
