    Leadership: How to conduct your orchestra

    in Business

    One of my mentors who was a great leader in my eyes, knew just how to inspire me. He told me he couldn’t motivate me that my motivation was within and it was his job to remove the obstacles between me and my motivation. This was very impactful for me and I use this as the basis in my coaching. In my mind Leadership is more like coaching. It is knowing how to inspire and bring out the best in others through recognizing their skills and abilities, enabling them and supporting them in removing the obstacles in their way.  Leadership is at the crux of productivity. That is self leadership as well as leadership of a team. Leaders do need to lead by example. When leadership fails, the team is less effective and efficient and can cost the organization significant sums in lost profits that result from direct and indirect costs.


    Think of your team as a group of musicians. Each one plays beautifully on their own when playing the instrument of their choice. Look at the power that group of musicians has together as they become an orchestra. That is where magic is made as they play together seamlessly. Today we will look what a conductor has to teach about leadership.


    Our Guest: Hugh Ballou


    Hugh Ballou teaches leaders around the globe how to build synergy with teams and how to build effective processes that bring success to any organization - no matter how big or how small.

    He is author of multiple books on Transformational Leadership and works as executive coach, process facilitator, and strategist. As a powerful motivational speaker, he teaches the fine art of leadership employed every day by musical conductors.

    America's Classical Music Jazz

    in Music

    This evening, I will interview and play the music of vocalist Loide Jorge.  Although she was born in France to her Mozambican mother and Guinea-Bissauan father, Loide grew up in California.  Presently, she is residing in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. For the last ten years, she has shared her music in jazz clubs throughout the United States and Europe.  At a tribute for Miriam Makeba in a jazz club in New York, she opened for  Paul Simon. In addition, she has opened for the legendary Hugh Masekela and Oliver Mtukudzi. Loide cites Sarah Vaughn, Cesaria Evora and Miriam Makeba as some of her greatest musical influences, but she believes it is her African heritage that has provided her with a fresh musical perspective, a unique sound, and her native tongue.  Join us this, evening at Jazz Notes where we are keeping jazz alive.

    Cannabis for Lyme and the Natural Reconnection

    in Culture

    Special friend and book author Shelley White returns to EntheoRadio to tell us about the amazing insights shared in her recent writing project and the resultant book (title coming soon).


    Captain Hugh T Alkemi and Shelley will speak dynamically about things such as cannabis and plant medicines for healing and health. Callers and questions are welcome during the live show.


    SHELLEY WHITE works as a writer and editor, and is studying to be an herbalist specializing in Lyme disease and other infectious diseases. Shelley is the author of 'Cannabis for Lyme Disease and Related Conditions: Scientific Basis and Anecdotal Evidence for Medicinal Use,' and is a regular contributor to sites such as Collective Evolution and The Mind Unleashed. She has written for various other sources as well, including SKUNK Magazine, Mind Body Green, and Natural News. The topics she most frequently covers include cannabis, psychedelics, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, alternative health, and consciousness.

    Her favorite pastimes are reading, learning, and spending time in nature. She is fascinated by plant medicine and plant consciousness. She credits her drive to continuously learn and connect with plants to her experience with Lyme disease, which taught her the importance of herbal medicine and expanding her mind. She firmly believes that, in the end, you are your own physician and the only one capable of fully healing yourself.


    To read excerpts from her book, view a detailed outline of the information it covers, and/ or order it, visit www.cannabisforlyme.com(it is also available for purchase on Amazon).
