THE CENTERED LEADER – ACHIEVING AFFINITY OF SELF
The core tenet of this program is centeredness, or mindfulness.
Bain and Co. determined that out of 33 traits that inspired colleagues, centeredness is the most important inspirational quality a leader can exhibit. This program will focus on what it takes to achieve and maintain this balanced and conscious state.
In pursuit of centeredness, we will explore 8 fundamentals that are covered in my book, “The Affinity Principle.” These fundamentals were distilled from the GLOBE 2020 CEO Study. This massive research project gathered data and feedback from 1,000 CEO’s and over 5,000 senior executives from a variety of industries across 24 countries. The study determined these 8 primary CEO leadership behaviors most impacted Top Management Team Dedication and Firms Competitive Performance.
This program will cover these behaviors and how you might leverage or enhance those behaviors in you.
UNLOCK YOUR INTRINSIC POTENTIAL – YOUR KEY TO SUCCESS
In this program, we focus on awakening your Intrinsic Potential (you can also think of it as your “Intellectual Property,” or “IP”), which I believe is the key to your success.
Each of us has innate talents and abilities. Often, these gifts are suppressed in our formative years by external expectations and imprints that steer us in a direction we may not be best suited for. Parenting and schooling have a tremendous impact on how these aspects of our true selves are either expanded or contracted.
More often than not, due to societal pressures and the schooling system, which is built around the lowest common denominator, our intrinsic talents and abilities get lost in the system.
This program looks at the imprints that have formed over the course of our lives and we explore ways to unlock and leverage your true potential into the success you desire.
Fundamental to this program is seeing into one’s true nature, or “Kenshō”. This is a Zen Buddhist term; Ken means “seeing,” shō means “nature,” or “essence”. The term for this awakening through comprehension and understanding of the self is “Satori.”
As you begin focusing on your “true nature,” you will begin to expand and unleash your intrinsic gifts. We will create this momentum through exploring and developing 8 key elements:
Each of these facets of your life will help you bring clarity and focus to your intrinsic potential, and allow you to expand that potentialexponentially.
MAKING MEETINGS MATTER
The cost of poorly organized meetings in 2019 almost topped $400 Billion in the US alone (Doodle’s 2019 State of Meetings Report).
- 92% of attendees self report that they work on other things during meetings
- Only 37% of meetings work to an agenda
- 57% of people multitask on a phone call (only 4% of people multitask on a video call)
- Irrelevant attendees slow progress in meetings by 31%
- 65% of senior managers said meetings reduce their ability to complete their own work
There is no single solution but for example simply using an agenda can reduce meeting time up to 80%. In this course, I will provide meeting protocols and tools to help make your meetings productive and efficient.

INCREASE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY: GAIN TRACTION AMID ENDLESS DISTRACTIONS
Researchers have proven that when switching between tasks comprehension decreases and the speed of completion is decreased by up to 40%. They’ve also shown a reduction in the efficiency in completing tasks of up to 4x.
Put simply, learning is seriously impaired when you’re multitasking, and errors increase when we’re dividing our attention between two or more tasks.
Single-tasking actually amplifies comprehension, improves completion of task efficiency, and reduces errors.
THIS 3-PART COURSE INCLUDES:
PART 1: Exploring the price we pay when we multitask
PART 2: Expanding and solidifying the benefits of single-tasking
PART 3: Simple tips and tools to effectively shift from multitasking to single-tasking

LEADERSHIP & MANAGEMENT DISCOVERY
This inventory will help you understand your current team’s strengths and define areas where they may need support and/or development.
PEOPLE FIRST, ALWAYS™
Similarly to the migration of retail to online, COVID has provoked a transition of thinking about where team members actually need to physically be in order to do their job well.
As we adjust our perceptions of what work looks like post COVID, there exists a gulf between what was and what will be when it comes to office geography. Companies have already begun divesting themselves of offices and buildings they formally saw as essential in order to house their workforce. Conference rooms lie dormant and have been replaced by Zoom calls. The office phone system has similarly been replaced by cell phones, text messages and FaceTime.
I touched on the importance of sleep in my article, “Three Foundations & The First Step Toward Mindful Leadership.” As I explained in that piece, quality sleep is one of the central foundation stones of optimal physical and emotional health. And yet it is underrated by some, and elusive for many.
As with many things, getting great sleep can be a process.
The first step in this process is truly understanding, and appreciating, the importance of sleep to our health and emotional wellbeing.
That title should raise some red flags for you immediately.
I mean, who can predict what it would take to achieve the ultimate state of wellness for any individual?
There are commonly held beliefs, a great deal of science and a plethora of information available on the achievement of aspects of wellness, but “The Ultimate State of Wellness”? That’s a very individual and ethereal thing.
