Episode #161 Embrace all Aspects of You

An Interview with Robin Keesler
The Shadowside Leadership Summit
April 29, 2023


Have you ever been triggered by your own success?  Yes, this is a real thing.  Often time we assume we're triggered because something went wrong.  What if everything went right and you were still triggered?  Welcome to humanity, my friend.  This is your human experience, or rather, your human experiment.  You get to decide what you want to adjust along the way.  The first step is to embrace all your aspects to understand yourself and your needs as a human.

The most successful leaders embrace their humanity.  They understand that both their light and shadow sides serve a purpose.  When embraced, each aspect creates connection, joy, and momentum in their life and business.

Even more impactful, when leaders and entreprenuers share both their light and shadow sides, they help others embrace their humanity.  This leads to global healing, connection, joy and momentum for all.

It's my honor to introduce you to Robin Keesler, the leader of The Shadow Side Leadership Summit.  

This Summit runs throughout May to support Mental Health Awareness month.  With approximately 20 leaders in the Mental Health space, we'll explore all aspects of business and life.

Join us to learn what inspired Robin to create this summit, her journey, and how this summit can help you as a Leader in Life and Business.

In this episode we explore:

  • Mental Health vs. Mental Illness
  • Definition and benefits of Light & Shadow Sides
  • How Shadow Sides make Better Leaders
  • Shadow Side Shifts - when, why and how
  • What to expect in the Shadow Side Leadership Summit

[24:05] The impact you face working with someone expressing their Shadow Side - Every human has a Shadow Side.  Some may just express their's a lot more.  As a leader, how can you keep yourself safe and healthy when exposed to other people's shadow sides?


[29:25] Why are you a better Leader with your Shadow Side showing? - Leaders are the ones everyone turns to.  Because they have it all together, right?  Maybe.  Maybe not.  There's something you may be missing.


[33:00] Experiments with shifting the Shadow Side - When you're ready for a change, where do you start?  What do you do?  Here are some examples.
