Are You a Champion or Saboteur?

Blog #289 “Oh, really? You feel alive again because you’re starting a new business? So, that means you’re going to work 100 weeks again and I’m on my own? Fine. I did it once, I guess I can do it again.” I have heard stories like this. In my work with individuals, it is not uncommon for people to feel stuck or lost about what their next chapter in life

Embracing Breathing Opportunities

Blog #288 Every business seems to have an ebb and flow of busy times, whether due to seasonal changes, project pushes, or the likes. I advise many of my senior leaders through these times, and I am also currently going through one of these periods. I love the intensity of having several projects come together at the same time. Right now, I am implementing sessions for current clients, adding new

Wandering Eyes

Okay, this blog is going to be 100% honest and probably a bit uncomfortable, but I believe there is immense value in it. Here goes nothing… Not long ago, my wife, Reka, and I were experiencing some challenges. When we went out to dinner, my eyes occasionally wandered. Sometimes, I received dirty looks if I took an inappropriately long time going to the restroom. I always tried to be discreet,

Couples Workshop Success

Blog #286 Recently, Reka and I held our first one-day couples workshop at our new home and retreat center in the high country of Colorado. It was nothing short of extraordinary. Thanks to all who attended, by the way! We limited this experience to six couples. We have previously held two-day retreats, but this was our first one-day intensive class. Nestled in the pine trees at 10,000 feet, we taught,

Is Your Company’s Success All It Appears To Be?

Blog #285 As the companies I work with continue growing, I noticed a few common themes. I often collaborate with teams that have been acquired by large “successful” companies. In some cases, these are private or private equity, while others, they may be publicly traded. From the outside, these acquiring companies seem to be smooth-running, well-oiled machines; however, once inside, it is evident they are  anything but that. Typically, these

Leadership Growing Pains

Blog #284 Many of the organizations I work with experience missteps in hiring as their leadership teams grow. The transition from leaders who are doers to true leaders and coaches is one of the biggest challenges teams face. The reality is, most organizations grow as a result of the hard-working entrepreneurial spirit, the “do-whatever-it-takes” mentality. And for a while, this works, and companies reach a certain level. However, with time,

Your Best Self

Blog #283 It is my strong belief that for anyone to be a great leader, they have to ensure they are their best selves in all aspects of life. What I mean by this is a leader needs to be healthy and well-rounded on a holistic level. For example, if you are making good money, yet spend no time at home and are unfit, it is likely you are not

Embracing Change

Blog #282 As human beings, we tend to fear change because of the unknown. I read something suggesting human beings are the only animals to look at the past with nothing but fondness and to the future with nothing but trepidation – even though there is almost no data to suggest anything but the opposite. In the grand scheme of history, albeit with a few minor dips, this has been

Exodus Goes Public

Blog #281 On Friday, February 26th, Exodus Movement Inc, a blockchain wallet and exchange resource for crypto currency, received approval from the SEC to formally announce their intention to go public through a Regulation A offering.  Click on the links below to read more about this. In late 2019, I was brought in to help the Exodus leadership team. Little did I know what a ride it

Senior Leaders Float Above the Business

Blog #280 I just completed a coaching call with a senior leader who is wonderfully smart, energetic, happy, but professionally, she is completely drowning – buried deep in the weeds. She has recently been elevated to a senior leadership position. In order for her to be successful, there are many things she will need to do; most importantly, she will need to transition from being a fantastic doer of tasks
