On today’s podcast I have the pleasure of speaking to Nkem Ndefo about the complex realm of “safety”–particularly in relation to race and the racial injustices that many face and have for generations. “Safety is an internal job,” says Nkem. We cannot create safety for anyone if we ourselves don’t feel internally safe. This episode is required listening for any coach or clinician who’s actively in practice during this pivotal moment in history.
