#29 Achim Nowak – Open the Door to Connection

Achim Nowak


C-Suite success coach, Achim Nowak reminds us not to limit how we show up because of false narratives and that we can be authentic in many different ways – being a successful adult means we choose a way that’s helpful to the context we are in.

We talk about energy and opening the door to connection. There is plenty of that in this conversation.

Finally Achim shares a moment of real discovery whilst preparing for his TEDx talk ‘Enough Already’ – it might surprise you.

About your host 

Trisha Lewis

I love hosting this podcast – the love is important if you are thinking of starting one! I love it because I meet and talk with fascinating people. I love it because it combines practical and psychological – with a dollop of real human story. 

When not podcast producing,  I am working with fascinating clients – helping them to release their unsquashed self and have REAL impact. You could call me a communication coach – but I mentor, direct, facilitate and work on more than public speaking! Book to be published early 2021 – The Mystery of The Squashed Self.
