An Interview with Sarah Brightwood, President of Rancho La Puerta

An Interview with Sarah Brightwood, President of Rancho La Puerta

Sarah L. Brightwood is the president of Rancho La Puerta, a world-renowned wellness resort and spa. She reflects on her upbringing and the privilege of being raised by a village in a nurturing and joyful pace of life. Sarah has the role of a dedicated healer with a profound connection to the land of the ranch, stewarding both the people and the flora/fauna with a spiritual touch. Her desire to ensure fairness and equity ripples outward from the Ranch and touches everyone-the Staff, guests, and community. She believes that taking care of the Staff , empowering them, and allowing them to grow within the Ranch will allow them to embody the Ranch’s culture, making the guests feel connected to the Ranch and nature. 

In This Episode:

  • [01:43] Meet Sarah as she opens up about how her childhood and growing up in a mixed cultural heritage contributed to her being a conscious leader.
  • [10:38] Choosing the leadership that continues the culture, language, and DNA of the Ranch..
  • [17:57] It is important that leaders, especially during these vulnerable times, support, help, and lift each other up.
  • [23:08] The values of self that we learned going through COVID.
  • [27:45] The actions Sarah took with her Staff when COVID forced the Ranch to close.
  • [33:07] Having a holistic approach to running Rancho La Puerta

Key Takeaways:

  • There is no one right way to do things.
  • To start living in a culture of conscious awareness, you need to stop and look at the unhealthy patterns that are repeating themselves.
  • We need to strengthen our microbiomes and our digestive fire. We can only do that if we have some downtime, a place where we can hum to our Vagus nerve, and do all of those practices that bring us back to the center.
  • Having the ability to return to the center when you get thrown off, to respond, to change, adapt, and to listen to non-human instructions is much greater than any individual.
  • COVID has taught us that the illusion that we live in these separate boxes, in separate houses or separate bodies or separate countries, no longer holds.

An Interview with Dr Mehrad Nazari, Founder of Enlightened Negotiation

An Interview with Dr Mehrad Nazari, Founder of Enlightened Negotiation 

Dr. Mehrad Nazari is a consultant, teacher, facilitator, and speaker. Through teaching, Nazari had an eye-opening experience that led to a strong interest in the concept of negotiation. His interest, partnered with his exposure to such a diverse student body, led him to write on the subject.

The lack of awareness of what negotiation is has influenced how he looks at the subject. Interestingly, through his own life experiences, Dr. Nazari has drawn parallels with simple concepts and yoga practices, and the art of negotiation. Dr. Nazari has helped thousands of people worldwide elevate their personal and professional interactions by enhancing their negotiation skills.

In This Episode:

  • [00:00:46] Meet Dr Mehrad Nazari, born in Tiran, Iran, was enlisted in a compulsory military service for two years before going to London where he got his MBA. With the support of his family, he then went to the US to get a PhD.
  • [00:05:39] Many languages do not have the word “negotiation”. What is often used is “haggling”. It is important to understand the difference between these two terms.
  • [00:12:08] Dr Mehrad explains how every single type of communication has a different mindset and different skill set.
  • [00:17:30] Research has shown that givers are more intelligent than takers.
  • [00:20:20] People need to change their mindset from “haggling” to “negotiating.”

Key Takeaways:

  • Negotiation is whenever there is the expectation of exchange.
  • Set your attention on your intention. Realize that there is always an opportunity for growth in every interaction.
  • Excellent negotiators care about the success of the other party as much as they care about their own.
  • A leader that is equal centric and aware that we are all connected, can energize and inspire people towards righteous action.
  • We need to “AKT” – Awareness, Knowledge, Transformation.
