What do you do best?

Help leaders build empowering cultures that drive customer loyalty and advocacy.

What makes you the best?

Having something you do best and being the best are quite different things. I spend little time thinking about “who is best” in my field. There is so much to learn and so many people to serve, I am content to strive for excellence on behalf of those who trust me with their businesses.

How will you stay the best?

I hope to stay relevant by listening. Listening to the changing wants, needs, and desires of customers, clients, team members, and colleagues. I also hope to stay open to the new ideas and opportunities that find me.

What are your aspirations: business & personal?

Personal: To help my adult children cope with the death of their mother so that they can love well and contribute to the lives of others. 

Business: I know I am suppose to offer a goal like write 5 more bestselling business books or achieve some type of revenue goal. In truth, I’ve stopped setting those kinds of business targets. I am in the back half of my life, so I don’t seek any particular marker of success and instead aspire to have greater significance.

What fascinates you?

How people find and nurture their talents, deep and abiding faith, the speed of change, laughter, music theory, beer making, and well-crafted written words

Favorite Motto?

It is the filter through which I make business decisions… “to serve those who serve well.”

Favorite People?

Humble, positive, smart, servant leaders who can laugh at themselves…. Fortunately I find myself surrounded by them!

Favorite Places?

A mountain stream, behind a guitar, near the people I love.

Favorite Products?

Of course all products sold by the companies I write about and consult with…. Beyond that I have a fond spot for Sonos, Nike’s Free 5.0 running shoes, Spotify, Gibson’s Les Paul guitar and Olhausen billiard tables.

Current Passions?

My children, singing/songwriting, college football, breast cancer research, watermelon, edamame, and a great porter or stout.

Most challenging moment?

It was a protracted "moment." The six-year journey with my wife on a losing battle with breast cancer.

Biggest disappointment - how did you/will you overcome it?

I am disappointed when I miss opportunities to connect with or delight people (particularly those closest to me). I am not sure if it is a matter of "overcoming" but it certainly requires a dedication to being better today than I was yesterday.

Biggest success?

Becoming less judgemental of myself and others and finding greater joy in the simpler things of life.
