Discover Your Own Uniqueness

I believe that each of us are blessed with unique gifts and talents to present to the world. Uniqueness that sets us apart from those around us. There is incredible value in cultivating your unique brand. You can leverage your personal brand to empower businesses & communities, and create positive change in the digital world.

Checkmate! Win At Digital Disruption

A checkmate in chess is a game-ending state where one the player’s king is threatened and maneuvers the opponent’s king into a check where it cannot make any final moves and wins the game. In order for us to be successful in the digital world, we must understand our own game-ending state which is our destination…our purpose. Then as an effective chess strategy, deeply study the common patterns required to prepare, cultivate, execute, and win in this new economy.

You’ve Been Framed!

In order to transcend difficult times, we must have a framework for resilience and recovery. Our personal transformation framework enables us to rise above the times and any circumstances we find ourselves in. This is critical, since we can’t always predict how technological advances will interrupt or disrupt our personal and professional lives.

Disrupt (Yourself) Before Being Disrupted

You must be willing to quit the right stuff at the right time and understand when to pivot. Unpredictable change and uncertain times present opportunities for you to pause, deep think, reset, and disrupt yourself to change the rules of the game. Be prepared to alter the events in your career that are fading, and breath life into new ones that will cause you to transcend the era of uncertainty.

Reset Your Mindset: See the World Differently

Go deep into the layers within yourself to uncover the heart of innovation, and creative capacity to solve problems by using your deep-thinking skills. Your ability to cultivate breakthrough thinking to create new ideas that will lead to new business ideas, services, or new products depends on your ability to stay curious and see what others don’t.

Discover and Unleash Your Purpose

Purpose is your secret sauce. It shapes your goals, objectives, and outcomes and what you achieve in life. Purpose influences behavior. It gives you meaning and a sense of direction. So, in the digital world, purpose is about being able to feel grounded in why you exist during this precise moment in history.

Increase Your Research Capacity

You can stay ahead and lead change, or you can ignore change and get left behind. Today’s leaders want you to exhibit a range of next-level skills that will accelerate their success in this ever-shifting market. This includes the ability to gather and assimilate information in real-time from many sources, and translate this research into actionable breakthrough strategies that leaders can act on.

Cultivate Your Multiple Intelligences

In the new economy, we need you to cultivate different combinations of intelligences to unleash abilities that are beyond your normal limits. The collective power of your Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Creative Intelligence (CQ), and Digital Intelligence (DQ) will take you places that your digital skills alone can’t.

Deploy Yourself

There is a difference between being employed and deployed. To be employed means that someone has given work to you. To be deployed means that you have given your gift to others for their effective use. An employer can fire you from your job, but they can never fire you from your gift. So, focus on deploying your skills, experience, gifts, and talents to those who need what you have to offer.

Become a Person of Value

People are attracted to persons who are valuable and bring something to the table. They enjoy and appreciate being around someone that they learn something from, and wouldn’t have learned if that person hadn’t shown up. So, your goal in life should be to add value in a way that no one else can, and to introduce new levels of energy, positivity, connection, and authenticity in the spaces you occupy.

Empower Others to Succeed and Thrive

I live by the philosophy ‘Each One Teach One’ which means that with all of the experiences, knowledge, skills, and lessons, abilities I’ve acquired in every area of my life, I must teach others so that they can achieve even greater things in their life and career. I continue to cultivate myself so that I can cultivate others, helping them to discover their purpose and unleash their greatness into the world.
