Weekly conversations to support CEO's doing meaningful work.

Expect to hear conversations that get inside the minds of successful CEO's as well as the people (coaches and thought leaders) that support them.

#15. Not Minding That It Hurts

This is a short story that I shared at a panel event I participated in. The question that was asked - "What one thought would you like to leave with the audience for 2019?"

Daily Mail #783: What A Way To End The Day

I recently watched a movie on Edward Snowden, the guy who blew the whistle on the NSA spying on basically every phone in the world.

He ends the movie with a line that I thought is really important.

“I have freedom from worrying about tomorrow because I am happy with what I did today.”

I like it for a few reasons:

1. It keeps you focused on the now.
2. It holds you accountable for what you did. Not what you said you would do.
3. It’s a great reminder that our lives will be pretty great if we gave our absolute best in every moment.

For 2019 I want more days that create freedom in the future.

For 2019 I want to end more days with a smirk, knowing that I gave my best.

How about you?

3D-Vision: Creating A Life Of Meaning, Productivity, and Performance

Sure, I might be showing up as the current best version of me. But am I showing up as the best version of who I want to be?

This is something I have been pondering now for a while. The thought originated with me after a workshop I did recently. In the workshop I talk about the high-performance state of mind and suggest two lenses through which we can view high-performance.

#9: First Put The Oxygen Mask On Your Employees

To me, this has a very obvious implication. When people are stressed their emotional and mental bandwidth decreases. This means that they cannot focus on what they need to do for you before they have made sure that they are OK. When someone is overworked, stressed, anxious, and struggling to find work-life balance then it’s very hard to show up at work fully engaged.

5 Activities For Peak Performance

Many people come to high-performance coaching thinking that they will be taught certain tricks that will make them more productive and effective. In a way, that’s exactly what happens, but not in the way that you might think.

#7: Becoming Whole: The Fortress of Solitude

Do you ever stop just to be with you? Or do you find that too intimidating a thing to do?

Solitude is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Hopefully, this podcast can convince you to give it a go and in the process learn more about yourself.

#6: The 4 C's of Mental Toughness

In this episode I discuss a topic near and dear to my heart - mental toughness. Specifically, I talk about the 4 C's of mental toughness as well as two other key constructs. If you want to succeed, you need to be mentally tough.

#5 On creating content, patience, and mental toughness

It has been a while since my last podcast. In this episode I explore the value of creating content but also the question which should guide the creation process. I also dive into 2 of the emails I have written and discuss some of the thinking behind them - the two themes that emerge are mental toughness and patience.
