Marjeta Novak

As a dialog specialist, I’m creating spaces where people can hear themselves, the others, and the future potential that can be co-imagined and manifested for the benefit of all. I work both as a dialogue facilitator and trainer; in a range of settings – from complex multi-stakeholder dialogues to participatory community events to organisational development to personal retreats. The longer I am engaged as a dialogue carrier, the clearer it gets for me that the quality of the dialogue I lead with myself and Life affects all other dialogues I am part of.

Some of my lineages include Art of Hosting Conversations That Matter, Nonviolent Communication, Circle practices, wilderness visioning quests, and ki aikido.

What advice would you give to others for avoiding burnout?
Listen to the world speaking through the body: when your body shrinks, what are the unacknowledged longings, needs, values that want to be honoured? When it expands, what is it that energises you, and how can you bring more of it to the world so that we all can thrive?

What are your favorite practices to maintain wellbeing?
-Courting wonder (What is the hidden wholeness in any perceived mess that wants to break through – perhaps with a little bit of my help?)

-Listening to my body, to other people, and to more-than-human world with passion and compassion (quoting botanist George Washington Carver here: ‘If you love it enough, anything will talk to you!’)

-Practicing ki aikido as an embodiment of loving dialogue in intense situations.

If you could create a billboard that captures a piece of wisdom about wellbeing and leading social change – what would it say?
How is leading social change already a form of self-care?

Arthie Moore

Arthie has been running two international businesses for over 20 years throughout South Africa, Africa, UK, USA and Europe. She is continuously seeking innovative methods to impact millions of lives around the world.

Arthie is one of two exclusively trained values-based leadership specialists in Africa, as well as a leadership coach, mentor and keynote speaker who specialises in diversity training and conflict resolution. She is also a published author, photographer and adventure sports enthusiast who realises that the biggest need people often seek to fill is self development.

Arthie spends her time interacting with a diverse group of people: from those who live in orphanages and squatter camps to those that sit on the board of directors or operate Fortune 500 companies. She finds that all people battle with the same challenge – the ability to connect on a deep level with others. Her own personal self development lies in her vision for her life, future and the need to impact entire countries whilst destroying the clichés that hold people back in life. An unfiltered mind!

What advice would you give to others for avoiding burnout?
Self care is the most thoughtful method of taking care of your soul. Taking care of yourself is the most powerful gift you can give to yourself, before you can choose to add value to the precious people around you. If you do not have balance in caring for yourself first, you will eventually resent the way you give to others. True authentic giving begins with you accepting that you deserve to give to you, too!

What are your favorite practices to maintain wellbeing?
I absolutely love nature photography, listening to music and long drives. This is the best way for me to embrace the beauty of nature and the inner speed freak in me. When I am not road tripping, I love writing food reviews and working with various chefs to learn innovative foodie tricks or just snuggling up with a good glass of red wine and classic book.

Davida is passionate about sustainability, leadership, communication and everything in between. She’s the founder of Be the Change and Enkindle Global, two different organizations with (at least) one cross-cutting purpose: to support leaders and changemakers in their mission to mobilize social change.

Davida is the author of the upcoming book Burning Out Won’t Get You There, and serves as an Art of Hosting and Non-Violent Communication practitioner – two approaches she likes to endorse both in life and at work.

She’s a mother of three, addicted to fresh air, and never say “no” to coffee and a good conversation.

What advice would you give to others for avoiding burnout?
Do your inner research: what keeps you happy and motivated? What brings you joy? Who are the people that keep you grounded and connected? Now take your answers and implement on a daily basis. No discounts, no short-cuts.

What are your favorite practices to maintain wellbeing?
Walking. Thinking about my challenges while in the outdoors. Having a friend over for a coffee in the middle of the day – for no specific reason. Playing with my children – it gives proportions to life and it’s fun. I believe we can all use more fun and playfulness.

For me the key words are passion and awareness – Passion for what you do makes sure your work both gives and takes your energy, and awareness makes sure you pay attention to the balance needed to hang in there for the long run.

What are your favorite practices to maintain wellbeing?
Spend time reflecting over the human mind and body with passionate people or spending time in nature, especially in new places where you can met unknown people that can widen your perspective.
