Spreading Mindful Intentionality Inside Google with Bill Duane on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 56

What does a title like Superintendent of Well-Being at Google actually mean? For Bill Duane it was a chance to take the mindfulness practices that helped him deal with his own anger and grief, and share them in a sustainable way. In this episode of Hack the Process Bill will explain how the practical value of meditation overcame the objections of his rational mind, what processes helped him develop a scalable training program at Google, and why he decided to leave the company after twelve years to create space for new opportunities.

Maria Dismondy Shows How to Write, Publish, and Build a Business as a Mom on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 54

When you need a particular book and it doesn’t exist, sometimes you just have to write it yourself. But it takes focus and determination to turn a first book into a career change, especially while bringing up three children. Maria Dismondy took on that challenge, and now she’s an award-winning writer of children’s literature, and has built a publishing company to help other women share their work. In this episode of Hack the Process Maria will tell us what mentors and mastermind groups have taught her about delegating responsibilities, why she continues to invest her time and energy in social networking, and how she structures her routine to get it all done in a few hours a day without sacrificing family time.

Get Uncomfortably Awake With Michelle Kim on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 51

Blending activism and entrepreneurship sounds like a delicate dance, but as a Diversity and Inclusion Consultant and a career coach, Michelle Kim is showing us how to make it happen, one uncomfortable conversation at a time. In this episode of Hack the Process, Michelle will explain why diversity training for startups is about more than just ticking a box on a form, how her own life experiences inspired her work with marginalized communities and individuals, and what she’s doing to make sure the information and training products she’s developing are effective, tested, and ready for the market.

Note: After this interview was published, Michelle let me know that my initial use of the word “woke” in the title could have been interpreted as cultural appropriation. Like all of us, I’m still learning, and I apologize for any offense. If there were a word that conveyed the concept as clearly and concisely I would have used it. Meanwhile I’ve substituted “awake” for “woke” in the updated title, and I would be grateful to hear from folks in the comments about better ways to get this complex idea across in a word, or maybe two. -David
