Top 10 Traits of Outperformers

Hello Outperformers, I’m sorry if I’ve been off the grid a bit lately. I won’t go into all the details because it’ll seem like a sob story, but the first half of the year has included the loss of my Mom, the loss of my dog, a major surgery for my Dad (thankfully, he’s recovering…

For those of you Outperformers reading this in the U.S., I hope you had a happy and blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends and great food!

Getting the BEST Out of Others

The process of communicating, messaging and getting the best out of people is a skill and not always an easy task. I’m typing this post on a flight from Minneapolis to Denver and just before I boarded, I received an email with feedback about one of my recent keynote speeches.

What Jumping in a Frozen Lake Taught Me About Outperforming

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from working with Outperforming business leaders and athletes, it’s that they’re constantly pushing the envelope. They are comfortable being uncomfortable. It’s a necessity to getting to the top and maintaining a competitive advantage. Last weekend I got the opportunity to jump in a frozen lake in Minnesota. Actually, you…

What I Learned From Running 100 Miles…

What was it like running 100 miles? The short answer is that it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. It was unbelievably challenging (physically and mentally), mostly painful, partly strange, yet wholly satisfying.
