Recently I was speaking with a good friend who was going through some tough emotional times and he recommended that I read a book entitled “When the Past Is Present”  I contacted David Richo the author and he kindly granted me an interview.  

In my interview with David we discuss the topic of transference which I have to admit I was not aware of prior to our interview and reading his book.  I know that many of my listeners will relate to this issue, for our relationships with our parents are frequently played out in our own relationships subconsciously.  

If a parent withheld love we can find that we emulate this behavior in our relationships.  I know for me that being demonstrative and loving has always been emotionally challenging and something that I needed to bring to the greater awareness too and focus on.  In my interview with David we discuss not only the topic of transference  but how David recommends transmitting this emotional challenge.  

I highly recommend David book “When the Past Is Present” if you are unaware of how you treat the people you love, and want to understand the steps you can take to eliminate this subconscious behavior.  

Please take time to listen to our interview and watch the video interview  below.  You can also visit David’s website by clicking here.

In my interview with Dr. Synthia Andrews we discuss her new book entitled ” The Path of Emotions”  

In her new book Dr. Andrews explores her life’s work about how emotions command our life-force and direct or choices.  Emotions provide rhythm, context and meaning to life. Without them we would find little of value in our successes and minimal learning from our failures.  Emotions convey the essence of being alive, yet most of us spend a considerable amount of time and energy avoiding and controlling our emotions rather that using them.  

Dr Andrews states that emotions are a source of information.  Comfortable or uncomfortable, they tell us about ourselves: where we need to grow, what traumas haven’t healed, what we have to offer the world and more.  

I hope you enjoy this interesting and informative interview with author Dr. Synthia Andrews as we explore the meaning of our emotions and the power we give them.

Larry Senn the author of “Up the Mood Elevator” is one of the most engaging and interesting authors I have interviewed in quite sometime.  

As you listen to our interview together you certainly will see why he wrote about moods and living life at your best.  Larry is the co-founder of a organizational consulting firm called Senn Delaney which just merged with Heidrick and Struggles.  The work that Larry has been involved in for the last 40 years has been cultural and personal transformational consulting.  At its core, Larry will tell you that if people don’t change, then the organization has no chance of changing.

His new book “Up the Mood Elevator” is packed solid with profound principles, fascinating concepts and practical tools to improve one’s ride up and down the mood elevator.    As Larry states in our interview once you understand what causes your mood and emotional changes, the better prepared you are to manage them successfully.   I encourage you to listen and learn while Larry Senn and I explore the in and outs , ups and downs of moods and the simple ways we can control our minds to have a better ride on the mood elevator.  

I encourage you to visit the “Up the Mood Elevator” book landing page and watch the engaging interview with Larry about his new book.
