this week is a conversation with Davida Ginter, who
I met on a LinkedIn Group about personal development. We
recorded the podcast early mornings after my exercise routine and
before I was heading to work. She is based in Israel, lived in
Sweden and has a keen interest to support others in preventing
burnout. Her mantra is based on Jane Goodall: Everyday we make a
difference and it is up to us, what kind of difference we want to
One of her
take aways she posted shortly after on LinkedIn, was
that ‘even if it will take much longer for organisations to
make the transition towards a holistic system that nurtures their
people's wellbeing, that doesn't mean that the few, who already
know that, can't start today.'
conversation is all about life life balance, and how
leadership, professional change makers and personal journeys
need to focus on the well being of people in a holistic way. The
price we pay for not looking after people and ourselves, is
burnout, a topic Davida is passionate about and is publishing a
book on this too.
In order to
avoid burnout, one valuable way it to increase connection to real
people, in person. We discuss being in the presence, and being
fully in the now, while carefully managing the
influence of social media.
Her idea of success is to be
the best version of herself, having a positive impact on
others, helping others. Also, as of above, her best advice is
to connect to real people, and treat others the way you want to be
treated. It is about developing a changing mindset to be open about
failure. Another advice is to take long walks, or empathy walks, or
to exercise, in order to reduce stress and take care of
oneself, she calls it the empathy walk.
