I've been interested in and working for the success of people and organizations since Arsenio Hall was on TV. For help with the history lesson, that was justly slightly after legwarmers, but about the same time as pegged pants.
I have a BS in Organizational Leadership with a specialization in Human Resources and Organizational Development, which is a long title to say I learned a little bit about how to keep employees coming back to their jobs without shock therapy.
I completed an MBA in Healthcare Management in less than a year, even without my mother helping me with the homework.
As the father of five children, I'm the unofficial spokesperson for ‘me time’ all around the world.
I speak English and occasionally German (lived in Germany and Switzerland for about 2 years). I've trained and spoken to individuals and companies in more than 25 states and 5 foreign countries, helping them increase their productivity.
My professional experience includes working in more than 20 different organizations (talk about a broad perspective – or just someone who can’t hold a job) in the capacities of human resources, sales, management, and training.
Intensely curious about how individuals create success, I interviewed 21 down-to-earth millionaires to find out how and why they did what they did and published my findings in, “21 Questions for 21 Millionaires: How Ordinary People Create Extraordinary Success.” I'm currently working on my second book, “21 Questions for 21 Olympians.”
My expertise is in delivering high-impact, transformative truth through keynote engagements, books, unique training engagements, and hosted corporate events.
