Today's podcast episode is a conversation I had with Pawel Wencel from Uncharted Performance. I was on the other side of the mic for once and got asked some very good questions. We talk about some of the unique characteristics that have contributed to helping me expand as a person, coach, and host. Some of the central themes identified by Pawel included creativity, exploring, questioning, listening, and coaching. We then talk about how these 5 elements get incorporated into my movement practice, relationships, personal development, and self expression through conscious and persistent effort. My favorite part of Pawel's description is this all happens while being vulnerable and breaking a few rules along the way.
