194: The Making Of A Maverick, With Marlo Higgins

Webster's dictionary describes the word 'Maverick' as "an independent individual who does not go along with a group or party." There is no dispute about the success potential in being a maverick.

Yet my next guest has put in the research and personal experience that convinced her, not only about the power inherent in being a maverick, but about a specific path for...

I'm imagining a scene in 'Back To The Future', when a time-traveling young man meets the time-machine inventor that made his presence in the past possible.

188: The Business Of Relationship Advice, With Crista Beck

It has become very clear in today's business landscape that the most important (and most profitable) categories for personal development advice are to be found in the following three camps: Health, Wealth, and Relationships. Given our human nature, it is arguable that the most powerful of these is Relationships, because they affect everything else so palpably.

187: The Power Of Experiential Leadership Development, With Matthew Confer

One of my all-time favorite sayings is: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. ” — Aristotle. Another one is more tongue-in-cheek, but just as powerful: "You can't learn to play soccer at a seminar. " —Anonymous. Both quotes make the point that learning is only a first step...we need to EXPERIENCE things to truly learn them well. Most of us would agree that we learn best by doing, but it is not always clear how to make it all come together for the...
