Action Is Always The Best Option

Action Is Always The Best Option

I know when success is right around the corner. I’ve seen the shift in mindset from the people I consult. When they break through that final barrier, they stop being someone who simply studies how to become successful and starts creating success. What’s that “magic” ingredient you ask? It’s called Action. Sounds too simplistic I know. You may even think that you’ve... [Read more]

Be The Best or Get Out

Be The Best or Get Out

One of the things that many people tend to accept is the goal of becoming “above average.” Being above average is safe. Being the best puts the spotlight on you, requires more bravery and often more self-honesty. For those who have an unfounded fear of standing out – being above average allows them to feel good about themselves without having to be the best. Being above average is secure.... [Read more]

You Get What You Accept

You Get What You Accept

Do you settle for less than you can be? Some of you can honestly say yes to this and back up your answer through an increased joy in your quality of life or business success; Both financially and productively. Some of you are also saying yes but your “feel good” attitude towards your answer is short lived when you look at the details of how your life can truly be. It’s not about... [Read more]

To Sell or Not to Sell

To Sell or Not to Sell

Most of the people whom I have coached within my Certified Innermetrix Consultant program have admitted to one HUGE problem that they have with being a coach, consultant or educator in their market; they hate to sell. To put it bluntly they think selling sucks! And who can blame them? Why would an individual who has the natural genius to become a consultant, suddenly decide to become something that... [Read more]

Do You Work Well With Others?

Do You Work Well With Others?

If you have any social relationships at all with business partners, customers or even coaching and consulting prospects, you have undoubtably noticed that there are some people that you are instantly more compatible with than others. This is no great mystery within itself, but what you may not realize is that your DISC results can show you WHY you are not communicating as well as you could be. For... [Read more]

Learn to Trust Your Instincts

Learn to Trust Your Instincts

After spending several decades assessing the natural talents and authenticity of thousands of coaches, consultants, fortune 500 executives and thought leaders around the globe (as well as re-assessing my own humble abilities) I’ve come to notice an important factor that is easily overlooked when it comes to understanding how to live your life on your terms; Your intuition. Intuition: “The... [Read more]

A New Entrepreneurial Mindset

A New Entrepreneurial Mindset

Last month I was interviewed by Michael Beck, host and founder of the Self Improvement Summit. During the interview, I gave several case studies that involved entrepreneurs who used their natural talents to succeed. That’s when I realized that I haven’t given entrepreneurs their fair share of success stories as 5th Level Genius, nor have I emphasized the amazing revolution that occurs... [Read more]

The Great “Weakness” Myth

The Great “Weakness” Myth

Evening everyone, and greetings from Philadelphia, the soon to be site of the best World Series in the last 20 years by the way. I wanted to talk with you real quick about the myth of strengths and weaknesses. Over the last few video blogs I’ve been talking about a related topic in that our tendencies, programming and belief is that we are flawed. Whenever the job requires us to possess something... [Read more]

A Genius Project Case Study

A Genius Project Case Study

Today, Gretchen Dougherty is one of the top sales people in her company, but this wasn’t always the case. Her company sells home security systems, and Gretchen’s job as an inside sales agent is to prospect over the phone to schedule home visits where a field sales representative gives a security consultation (otherwise known to you and me as a sales pitch).

Behavioral Interviewing

Behavioral Interviewing

Let’s face it.  Whether you are looking to become the next VP of Marketing at Thecompany.com, or the newest programmer at your dream computer company, interviewing for any new job pretty much stinks.  Sure, it can be an exciting time, but the actual interview itself is stressful, awkward and usually something you would rather just avoid. We all approach looking for work with a weird mix of excitement... [Read more]

Squeezing the trigger

Squeezing the trigger

Question for you. If three frogs are sitting on a log and one decides to jump off, how many frogs are left? The answer is; three, because deciding to jump and actually jumping are two totally different things. From time to time I run into a client who has taken the first step (in their head) of deciding to change their lives in one way or another, but one of the hardest things for some people to do... [Read more]

Negative Effects of Bad Management

Negative Effects of Bad Management

Previously I’ve talked a lot about the negative effects of a workplace filled with outdated beliefs about how best to manage people. My argument has been that a great deal of these beliefs are legacies left over from the industrial era, where most people were manual workers, not the knowledge workers we find occupying most offices today. There is a whole host of problems associated with such... [Read more]

The Myth of Strengths and Weaknesses

The Myth of Strengths and Weaknesses

There exists a myth about strengths and weaknesses, one which states that we all naturally possess them. In reality, we don’t. What we do possess are natural talents and non-talents, but these are not the same as strengths and weaknesses. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those that thinks it is too negative to tell someone they have a weakness and wants to call it “an opportunity for development”.... [Read more]

What Did God Put In You?

What Did God Put In You?

To quote the late great Dr. Robert Hartman, “Stop trying to put in what God left out and instead work with what he put in!” That’s hard enough, and that’s what the geniuses we studied do every day.

Genius Leverage

Genius Leverage

In the research we measured people against five different levels of performance: poor, average, above average, excellent and genius. My use of the term “genius” doesn’t mean a person’s IQ, rather it is a title that grew out of the study and it represents the highest level of performance we measured. As we interviewed the very best people, again and again those we talked with would make statements... [Read more]
