Tell me if this sounds familiar:

  • You reach out for feedback, but get little.
  • Training/development just isn’t a priority for your team.
  • You want to make things happen, but bureaucracy slows you down.
  • Office communication pretty much sucks.

“There’s so much avoidable failure that causes so much pain.”

I am only one guy, and even though I reach rooms full of folks during my workshops, any given room will only hold so many people…I know the struggle of the worker who wants to make an impact but is simply left without support within their own office. I’ve lived it, and I see it all the time.

While I enjoy hearing, “You’re doing great!”, the follow-up sentence of, “Just keep doing what you’re doing!” doesn’t work for me. I want a clear and actionable roadmap of the things I need to do to get where I want to go. I need to know the tools, hacks, and strategies that are both sensible and proven by those who came before me.

I’ve always been pathologically curious. As a kid, I would go to the Danville Public Library every weekend with my dad, eager to learn. Sure enough, the more I learned in an area, the better I performed! That curiosity served me well and earned me some flashy credentials. I consulted at Bain & Company. I’ve spent thousands of hours delivering one-on-one coaching to 700+ world-class thinkers to sharpen their communication and problem-solving skills. These clients hail from over 50 countries, every Ivy League school, and world-class organizations such as Google, Goldman Sachs, McKinsey, the United Nations, and Amazon.

But the creds matter little compared to the impact I’ve enjoyed making. This site enables me to multiply that impact by sharing the best insights I learn from the best thinkers. I hope you enjoy dorking out about this powerful knowledge as much as I do.
