I’m delighted to have Matthew Condie on the podcast for this episode.
Matt is the kind of eclectic psychologist that I love talking to. He’s held several key roles in clinical psychology including child protection, youth and adult mental health, forensic drug and alcohol, emergency psychiatric services, perinatal and infant mental health, and refugee mental health working in refugee camps overseas. But Matt also has sport in his veins and he works with athletes and as an educator in the United States, teaching in the area of Sport and Performance psychology and leadership.
In this conversation Matt and I traverse the terrains of identity, vulnerability, self compassion and leadership.
We explore the different identities that we possess - worker, family member, child, sibling, partner, parent - and how it’s easy to get lost in these to the detriment of who we are as individuals.
We discuss values and how knowing your core values helps you stay true to yourself
Matt introduces us to self-compassion and its importance in complex situations and emotions.
Brene Brown’s book, Dare to Lead, comes up and we examine what we means by leaning in to vulnerability in order to experience our full range of emotions and possibilities.
And we demonstrate our own vulnerability as we grapple with some tech challenges and accept that failure and struggle is part of life and success.
Join me for this thoughtful and thought-provoking conversation.
