What Version of Yourself Are You?
Every person operates at some version of their potential. No matter where you find
yourself now, you could be experiencing more of your potential or less of it. The same is true of every
business, every family or any organization. The version of itself that any organization is operating at
is directly related to the version of themselves that the people in that organization are operating at.
If the people are operating at a low version of themselves, the organization will operate at a low
version of itself. If the people are operating at a high version of themselves, the organization
will too. Obvious right?
Maybe not, because most organizations do not make individual personal growth of the people
within the organization a top priority. Many consider it to be outside their realm of responsibility and
instead just use the same old methods to try to get the most out of their people assuming that who they
currently are (what version of themselves they operating at) is all they've got to work
Even the business owners and executives often miss this vital connection in their own lives.
They spend most of their energy working IN the business, very little working ON the business and even
less working on THEMSELVES. As a result, they keep operating at their current constrained version of
themselves and their business do the same.
Important But Not Urgent
It's not that people don't see any value in working
on their business or working on themselves, it's more often just that there doesn't seem to be any
time to do anything other than deal with the urgent demands of the business. Steven Covey, in his book The
Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, teaches the distinction between the urgent and the important and
identifies Quadrant 2 (Important but not Urgent) as the place where all progress comes from.
Spending time and energy focused on Q2 things is how you will become a better version of
yourself. However, it is very difficult for people to spend much time there because it feels like
there are more urgent things you could be doing.
There are many different books and seminars and courses that exist to help people work on Q2
things and they are all good to some degree.
A Clarity Partnership
However, if you really want to unleash a much higher version of yourself, there is simply
nothing as effective as hiring a good coach and committing to a process of upgrading who you are
To me there is nothing more amazing and wondrous than the human mind, except for what
happens when two human minds come together to create a "Mastermind." In that space, miracles happen! My
definition of a miracle I take from Syd Banks "A Miracle is the right use of Mind." I've experienced
it myself- on both sides of the coaching equation- by paying others to coach me and by being paid to
There is simply not a more powerful formula for transformation. You can read all the books and go to
all the seminars and retreats that you want, but trying to transform yourself on your own is simply not as
effective. You can make some progress, but there is something about the way we are designed as human beings
that it takes two people working together in harmony to really transform. For whatever reason, we can
only reach greater levels of our inner potential by having the humility to open up to another person and the
commitment and accountability to work with them to unlock our deeper potential.
It's always been this
way. It's still true today, and always will be. Every high performing person in any
walk of life has a coach of some sort. Top performing athletes, actors, entrepreneurs, business leaders
or political leaders all have coaches. They may not always call them a coach, but there is someone in
their lives that they are willing to open up to and work with on a regular basis to help them identify and
subtract from their lives everything that keeps them from a more complete expression of their
own innate greatness.
I designed my Clarity
Catalyst logo to visually symbolize what happens when two minds create a clarity partnership.
That is what I want for you- whether its with me or someone else.
Experience vs. Concept
I work with people who deeply want to become better
versions of themselves- not just for themselves, but even more importantly, for everyone whose lives they
impact- their family members, their business associates, their friends, even the strangers they encounter on
any given day.
There is no way I can adequately EXPLAIN in words or even
pictures what happens in this amazing (and rare)setting called coaching. The only way to know
is to have a personal experience with it yourself, which is why before agreeing to take on any client, I
always have at least one or sometimes more "Exploratory Conversations." My goal is for you to walk away from this conversation having had
a real EXPERIENCE with working together, not just a pleasant discussion of the concept of
I don't assume I'm right for everyone- in fact I assume I'm
only right for a few people. Are you one of them? Let's schedule a free exploratory
conversation- it's really the only reliable way to find out if we're right for each
is no cost or obligation to have this conversation. It just needs to be scheduled (see contact info at
right). I like to set aside a 2 hour block of
time for these conversations so there is no rush and we can really explore wherever it
takes us. We may not use the whole two hours, or we may even use more.
conversations are done by phone (unless you happen to be in Mesa, AZ and want to meet in person).
Meaningful conversations are rare and priceless when they
happen. Make one happen for you- it's totally within your control (and so few things really are so
take advantage of this.)
There is absolutely NO expectation that anything happen
beyond this conversation. My commitment is that I will show up fully present and grounded and
genuinely curious to learn more about you. My intention is that you have a meaningful
experience that will assist you in some way- and that's it- I'm not attached to whether you want to
work with me or not.
If you'd like to have an exploratory conversation with me,
just send me an email or call me.
