The Legendary Leaders Podcast

Dec 19, 2019

In this the 8th podcast episode in the Legendary Leaders series, we meet Sarah Weiler, owner of Power of Uke, TedX Speaker, Comedian and DJ (having played Glastonbury in 2019).
Sarah shares some great insights into life and interests. She refers to the analogy of a carousel when it comes to having a varied lifestyle and not wanting to focus on just one ‘thing’ in life.
Putting your life and interests on the carousel acknowledges them all without the worry of forgetting one area when your focus is elsewhere. Sarah also redefines focus, explaining that it doesn’t mean having to pick one thing and only do that, but rather ensuring that at any one point in time you focus completely and fully on that one area to give it your all.
Sarah shares with us the unique workshops she has run with numerous corporates where she takes people through a process to learn the ukulele, write a song and perform it, and the immediate reactions she receives compared to the feedback from those involved at the end.
She explains the sense of self-belief that the workshops help to create, and the role they play enabling participants to have a bit of fun, loosen up and get into a good mental and interpersonal state for doing their work. Sarah challenges the recent trend of ‘niching’ when it comes to our work, which can cause unnecessary stress and potentially overlook the variety of skills and areas of life we enjoy.

About Sarah Weiler:
Sarah has spent the last 12 years teaching, facilitating and coaching all over the world and working hard to build a life full of activities that make her feel alive. These include: Power of Uke (using the ukulele to access Growth Mindset and Creativity in corporate organisations like Google and PWC), Rye Laughs Comedy night, DJing, stand-up comedy, career and life coaching, teaching money mindset, becoming a TEDx speaker around the topic of Quitting and most recently creating The Carousel. Her claim to fame is her GDPR comedy song, which went viral.
Having so many things on the go at the same time can lead to overwhelm if we're trying to do them all at the same time, and feeling as though we not giving all the attention to all things at all times. Enter then the concept of the Carousel, devised by Sarah Weiler, who honours that having variety in life and career doesn't have to mean doing all the things at the same time, and that variety can also mean focus. Not one or the other.
