Relationships are like a dance – it’s always fascinating to take a look at the posturing that we all do, the dancing around subjects, and the way we engage in patterns that can be both enriching and destructive.  My guest in this episode, Dr. Harriet Lerner is one of our most respected voices in communication, particularly the “how-tos” of navigating the swamps and quicksands of difficult relationships. She is the author of 12 books, including The New York Times bestsellers, The Dance of Anger and The Dance of Fear. It…

Before you step onto a stage to speak, you need to have clarity on two big questions: who your target audience is and what specific problem you solve for them. Once you answer these questions, it’s surprisingly easy to put together a great talk (or webinar, podcast, and so on). It’s when you’re vague and loose with these answers that your talk might meander and not reach anyone. Pat Quinn didn’t get his start as a professional speaker. Instead, he worked as a professional magician for 10 years before deciding…

Some people talk about changing their lives, but they lack the tools to get them unstuck.

There’s a funny scene in Jerry Maguire where Jerry is having a confrontation with his very high-strung, intense fiancée Avery. She says, What was our deal when we first got together? Brutal truth, remember? To which Jerry responds… I think you added the ‘brutal’. In everybody’s life there are the tough conversations that can cause an anticipatory sort of fear and even dread. Whether it’s with a neighbor, spouse, child, partner, boss… the list goes on.  My guest today, David Wood, has built one of the world’s largest coaching businesses,…

This interview, which was originally featured on my Marketing Speak podcast is so incraedibly relevant in these turbulent times of 2020.

He also knows a thing or two about unleashing viruses—no, not the awful kind that causes global shutdowns, I’m talking about…

Today, as I’m recording this, it’s World Productivity Day. And no, I didn’t make that up. As a productivity enthusiast, I took massive action yesterday and convinced Mike “The Productivityist” Vardy to join me for a livestream which we just finished broadcasting on Facebook. We covered topics as diverse as fear versus will, feeding the soil versus feeding the plants, modeling instead of teaching, habit stacking, the power of combining intention with attention, what to do when you break the chain of a new daily habit, and much more.  Mike…

You may be familiar with assessments such as Kolbe, Myers-Briggs, DISC and StrengthsFinder – and may have even taken them or encouraged friends, family, or staff to take them. There’s one assessment I was completely unaware of until recently, and I’m guessing you hadn’t heard of it either, and it’s called PRINT. And I have to say, it rocked my world. This is nothing like your typical personality test, it truly is next level. I got exposed to PRINT through Strategic Coach, a mastermind I'm a part of. After taking…

The things that trigger pain and discomfort in our bodies are sometimes quite clear, and other times vague and terribly frustrating, because traumas can go as far back as childbirth and even in utero. My guest today,Dr. Barry Gillespie is the creator of Craniosacral Fascial Therapy, or CFT. CFT is a merging of both craniosacral therapy and fascial release work, and it works on the Craniosacral Fascial System, which can become tight or restricted due to past injuries and trauma.
