    The Power of Belonging for Kids and Development

She outlines in the podcast the value of belonging for building identity, highlighting aspects from her book Five to Thrive, where she shares the core needs found in science that are essential for building a solid identity. Dr. Kathy highlights in her book how these needs are true because God made them true and has them manifest in special ways in reality. In her book, she outlines a Christian view of how these needs are met most wholly in Christ and how building an identity on Jesus is one that will never fall or falter.

    Dr. Jenny Small and Dr. Pietro Sasso: What should universities be offering Jewish students?

    Today we have with us Dr. Jenny Small, Virtual Scholar, and Dr. Pietro Sasso, Research Fellow from the Piazza Center to explore questions of identity and belonging in traditionally Jewish fraternities and sororities. In episode 408 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Jenny chose Brandeis University for her undergraduate experience, what it's like for Pietro to work at Delaware State as a program coordinator for a Doctorate program, what should institutions be offering Jewish students, why Jewish educators seem to struggle with advocating for Jewish students, why many University Presidents have not been vocal on this issue to support their students, why some non-Jewish educators who hold other minoritized identities have high empathy for Jewish students' experiences, advice to educators working with Jewish-heritage chapters, whether Jewish fraternities and sororities should be exclusively honoring their history with only Jewish members versus growth on today's diverse college campuses, resources about traditionally Jewish fraternities and sororities as well as identity and belonging, and what professionals will learn at their upcoming session at the Association of Fraternity and Sorority Advisors Annual Meeting in Tampa.   

    The Reunion Podcast - Episode 1 - What If We All Belonged to Each Other? Ancestral Reunion, Belonging, and the Path to Healing

    The Reunion Podcast - Episode 1 - What If We All Belonged to Each Other? Ancestral Reunion, Belonging, and the Path to Healing
    Welcome to The Reunion Podcast, where we dive deep into the stories that shape us, the struggles that push us, and the path to finding belonging in a world that often leaves us feeling lost. In this episode, Jerry Colonna and Marshall Pollard, along with guests Leticia and Erika, embark on a deep dive into the power of ancestral connections and the healing that comes from rediscovering our roots. Through a series of personal anecdotes and thought-provoking conversations, they navigate the complexities of family dynamics, the desire for love and belonging, and the transformative journey toward self-actualization. Erika and Leticia unpack the depths of their pasts and uncover the stories that shape who they are. As leaders, we invite you to reflect on these questions: 1. Who am I? How do I identify? Who and what that might relate to that identity have I not seen? How did it benefit me, or my family, including my ancestors not to see or recognize such things? Which stories of my family of origin have we chosen to remember and which have we chosen to forget? 2. To whom do I belong? To whom did my parents belong? What is it that tells me I belong to my family? What does it feel like to know that I belong? Among whom of my ancestors might have been left behind or forgotten? 3. What is your work to do? How have I been complicit in and benefited from systemic othering? What would I have to give up that I love that might make me feel safe and I belong so that others might feel the same way? How might I create systemic belonging for others? Whose stories should I be listening to? Join us on this enlightening journey as we seek a grand reunion, where our stories converge, and true belonging is found. Listen in, journal, and discover the power of reuniting with the past to shape our present and future. Leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!

    018 - Belonging: Who Wants Me | The Five Core Needs on Dr. Kathy Says

    018 - Belonging: Who Wants Me | The Five Core Needs on Dr. Kathy Says

    In this episode, Dr. Kathy delves into the third of the five core needs, which is belonging. Belonging is described as occupying a central position in the pyramid of core needs. Dr. Kathy emphasizes that belonging is fostered by both security and identity. She points out that when individuals, whether children or adults struggle with belonging, it is crucial to consider the state of their security and identity. If these aspects are not healthy, individuals are likely to face difficulties in finding a sense of belonging. The question of belonging is framed as "who wants me" rather than "who needs me." The episode notes that some individuals may attempt to fulfill their need for being wanted by being needed, but this approach can be problematic as it may lead to constantly seeking validation and assuming positions of power. Furthermore, the episode highlights that belonging stems from one's character, emphasizing the interconnectedness of security, identity, and character.

    Brené Brown's Guide to HEALING & Finding True Belonging

    Brené Brown's Guide to HEALING & Finding True Belonging

    My guest on this special rewind episode of The School of Greatness has carved out a very prominent place for herself in the world of emotional well-being.

    Who is Dr. Brené Brown? Dr. Brené Brown studies shame.  

    Often, when she’s on a plane and isn’t in the mood for talking, this one-liner will easily shut down an unwanted conversation (or even a wanted one). Typically, we don’t like to talk about shame or anything that can make us feel vulnerable. But Dr. Brown isn’t afraid to talk about shame, vulnerability, and loneliness, because sadly, it is at the heart of humanity today. These are feelings that we all feel at some point in our lives.

    We don’t like to talk about vulnerability, mostly because it makes us feel “weak” or “powerless.” We feel like if we admit our fragility, we will be broken in two by the opinions of others and even ourselves. The reluctance to discuss shame has attached a stigma to a very common emotion that we all experience. We discuss that, and more on today’s episode.

    In this episode you will learn,

    • What belonging truly means.
    • What makes people complex.
    • What every parent needs to know about when their kids grow up.
    • Why parents are so defensive about their parenting style.
    • How to support men in being willing to discuss vulnerable topics.

    Cassie Little: What causes disengagement in our chapter and how do we increase morale?

    As Her Sorority Journey's speaker, podcast host, and TikToker, Cassie Little considers herself a sorority advocate and community enthusiast. Her college sorority journey at Arizona State University and early professional experience at Sigma Kappa Sorority lit a fire in her soul that sorority has the power to change lives. Our chapters, officers, and members just need to be empowered in the role they play to create that reality. Starting this company in 2020 and learning too many lessons the hard way running a business through a global pandemic, She is willing to try nearly anything to ensure our national sorority community understands the power they hold and how to use it power for the good of those around them.

    In episode 400 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Cassie chose Arizona State University, why she joined Sigma Kappa, what it was like working for the National Headquarters, why she decided to launch Her Sorority Journey in 2020 just as the pandemic started, what are some strategies to nurture meaningful relationships and a sense of belonging among our members and PNM's, what causes chapter disengagement and how do we increase morale, what does good officer transition look like, how do we sell our skills within Fraternity and Sorority Life in our future career, and what are some lessons learned about entrepreneurship.

    147: Mastering Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Career Coaching

    Join our podcast host, Mark Crossfield, in this educational conversation with Salma Shah, author of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging in Coaching. Salma emphasizes the need for coaches to give time and space to the lived experiences of marginalized groups and to contract for courageous, real conversations.

    Learn why having a coach is crucial for clients from marginalized groups, who may face additional challenges in the workplace, to assist personal growth at a deep level to move someone from good to great: levelling the playing field and giving everyone an equal opportunity to succeed.

    Salma shares the challenges she has faced, advice for coaches, prejudice and bias in coaching, exploring identity, and the need for training and continuous development. Learn about the lack of diversity in internal coaching pools, and how this lack of representation can hinder the development of talent pipelines and the success of marginalized groups in the workplace. Every coach needs to listen to this conversation!

    "Coaching without diversity, equity, and inclusion is like driving blindfolded."

    What's the difference between belonging and fitting in?

    As human beings, we have that need for connection - our network and our connection with others to help us thrive.

    But there are 2 sides to this - the fact that we fit in and the other side, belonging.  

    We can often make sure we fit in - to ensure our needs are met - but how do we get to the point of belonging - and what's the difference?

    Have a listen to find out.

    #165 - The Bones of Belonging - with Annahid Dashtgard & Jerry Colonna
    In this episode of the Reboot Podcast, Jerry sits down with Annahid Dashtgard, a fellow author, activist, and champion for justice, equity, diversity, and inclusivity. The pair discuss Annahid’s latest book, The Bones of Belonging: Finding Wholeness in a White World, which is a poignant collection of essays centered around Annahid’s experiences searching for, and teaching about, belonging in our deeply divided world. Jerry and Annahid delve into the little, insidious, persistent ways we feel pressured to abandon parts of our identity, and how creating spaces and organizations of belonging requires that we reconnect with the dismembered parts of ourselves and the knowledge our bones hold.
