Hi, my name is Kimber Vradenburg, and I've been a humanitarian practitioner for over 20 years.

Specifically, I love working with practitioners in the field serving their own communities. They are the people upon whom every humanitarian effort depends. They are also systemically undervalued. Over two decades I’ve worked with these incredible practitioners, meeting as people wit ...

We all have those days in humanitarian work. The ones where you're not motivated to do anything. When you feel like nothing is going your way. When you want to quit.

I remember when I sent my first email. I waited in excitement as the dial tone sounded, and the email I just typed blinked from my outbox... such a magical moment! Since then, email has become more of a source of anxiety than excitement, as many can probably relate. And when people misuse email, it becomes even worse. Not only does the misuse of em…
 
In this episode, we explore the veneer of beliefs and the prevalence of resilience by looking back through the contexts we’ve discussed so far, from Ghana to Ethiopia, and bringing in a narrative from Rwanda to underline some of the key themes.

One of the requests I frequently receive in leadership coaching is to help humanitarian leaders build their self-confidence. The hope is that by having greater self-confidence, they will be able to do more and grow more. This is great, but I have also found there's a lot of confusion around what self-confidence is and where it comes from. And knowi…

If you want to find out where your limited thinking is limiting you, then just look at the places in your work or life that are not where you want them to be.

When ordering food at a restaurant, depending on where you are ordering something like "chips" or "biscuits" or even "cookies" or "crisps" can bring something different than what you expected.

Let's face it, humanitarian and development work are reliably unpredictable.

As a human, you've probably had a negative thought or two about your team members or direct reports. It is only natural, and yet, judging others negatively is NOT helpful as a leader. When you judge your direct report, you are assuming what you are saying about them is a fact, when it isn't. It is also not a useful place to be when you decide to ha…

As supervisors in international development it is easy to forget that we don't need to know all the answers. When our teams come to us with problems, our instinct or habit may be to tell them how to resolve their problem. Many of us may think that this is being a caring leader, but I would argue the opposite is true. In this episode, I will share w…
