The Power Behind Executive Leadership Mastermind Groups

To many people the concept and value of an effective mastermind group may possibly be rather new and undiscovered territory. A mastermind group provides the opportunity for group participants to tap into the potential wealth of knowledge and intelligence of others, especially when seeking solutions to complex issues and challenges. The best part, if you are a leader facing a dilemma or uncertainty, you can quickly tap into other leaders for guidance and advice, while learning and working together to find the best solution to the problem. The excellent news; when the mastermind groups are set up correctly, they can produce tremendous growth and value to you and your business. I had an opportunity to be part of a high impact leader mastermind group just yesterday, allowing me not only to ask some of my burning questions but also to work together with others in finding solutions to very complex issues […]

9 Powerful Leadership Lessons by Sports Legends

As my book is progressing (I’ll disclose and reveal more details soon) around more than a dozen individual and team sports with professional coaches and athletes, I could not resist sharing the following nine powerful sports legends’ lessons that I learned early on in life thanks in part to my exceptional father, brother and first mentors in my life. 1. Muhammed Ali: “ Friendship… is not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.” It amazes me to see over the years how this statement has echoed in my personal and professional life in the self-discovery of friendships that I offered, nurtured and kept despite so many challenges. I learned that by being positive, loyal, genuine, supportive and honest, this granted me access to some of the most profound life-long friendships with many exceptional people. Brilliant, Muhammed Ali! 2. Ayrton […]

How to Create High Impact: 7 Ways to Change Your Performance in Life, Business or Sports

Happy Tuesday! As The World Messenger (which by the way is the title of my new book) I’ve virtually traveled the world over the past month. From Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden, UK, Italy, Germany, Slovakia, Spain, Croatia and Serbia to Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Kenya, Columbia, Argentina, Canada and back to my home in the US, I’ve been reflecting on dozens of astonishing conversations with some of the most fascinating and accomplished people in business and professional sports. I also got to flex my language muscles, hear the most appealing accents… and laugh at some things that were literally lost in translation. (Skype, you Rock!) While every conversation was unique and joyous, I found that they all shared a common thread:  Abundant and endless passion. Why Passion? Everything we do requires a particular level of energy. If we work on self-discovery and exploration (remember the good old days when we […]

10 Aspects to More Successful Leadership: Consistent Engagement & High Performance Impact

Travels change us, challenge us and transform us! Exposure to a broad range of experience with people and places, can touch us and enrich us in ways that we will never be the same. These experiences can leave a mark on and within us in the most profound ways, some meaningful, some magical and some memorable. The journey of a legacy leader never stops and is often not easy, yet I promise you it is worth the reward! Recently, I spoke at the Denver Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI), where I had the opportunity to interact with a group of 60+ people from a broad range of industries from startups to Fortune 500 companies. When I asked how many of them are not happy with their current position and current employer, the answer was over 80% people in the room. The larger the company, the more dissatisfaction with […]

Where You Are vs. Where You Want To Be: 8 Steps From Fear to Greatness

If you take a moment to reflect on your first big dream as a kid, when you are asked “who do you want to be or want to do when you grow up”, you might surprise yourself today with the answer. Some of us reached exactly what we wanted, some not yet, and some of us are still unsure what that may be. Our BIG DREAM is turning into identifying our BIG WHY! At some point in our life, we lost touch with that dream or our why, and in some rare cases, we may not remember that we had one. The best part is that we can reconnect or discover a new dream in our life right now, right? Regardless what role we may play in our personal or professional life, we all are at some point looking for game changing or transformational opportunities that will lead us on […]
