Extreme Leadership

A World Transformed:  Extreme Leadership

“For the past ten years, Luis Soriano, a teacher in the small town of La Gloria, Colombia, has created a mobile library with the help of his donkeys.  He then travels through the fields to the villages beyond where children await his visits impatiently.  He firmly believes that bringing books to people who don’t have access to them can improve the country and open up possibilities for the future generation.”

I looked him up.  Luis started with 70 books and one donkey.  He now has 7000 books (mostly donated) and two donkeys with specialized “bookshelves.”  

If Luis Soriano can do this on the unpaved backroads of Colombia, what’s stopping you from doing YOUR thing?

What issue is right in front of you, that you have the KNOWLEDGE to solve, the PASSION to address, and the RESOURCES to get started?

I firmly believe that in order for the world to work (see Bucky quote below), each of us needs to take responsibility to make our individual worlds work.

You have already been gifted with the ability to solve problems.  Our brains AUTOMATICALLY go into solution-mode when presented with a clear challenge.

So, what then, is the problem?  

“I don’t have enough time/money.”

“Who am I to reach that high?”

“Someone else is probably doing it already.”

“I don’t know how to get started.”

I have been privileged for the last three years to work within the Extreme Leadership Accelerator, where we provide powerful leadership education, extreme accountability, monthly Mastermind calls and personal coaching.

As both a participant, and a cohort leader, I have been supported in really stepping up my own leadership abilities, and managing foundational issues that had been getting in the way of sharing my gifts in the world.

Those issues about not enough time/money; not knowing how; imposter syndrome… We address them and we solve them.  

Normally, my Monthly Musings letter is just that… my personal thoughts about the world.

This month, however, I am making a special request.  I’m requesting that you TAKE ACTION.

The 2024 Extreme Leadership Accelerator is kicking off February 7 (4 – 5:30pm Pacific). And I’d like for you to be a part of it.

My partners Steve Farber, Maurice Thibodeaux and I will be introducing Steve’s concept of Leadership through Love, Energy, Audacity & Proof (LEAP).  

It is our intention to support each of you in clearly defining YOUR focus for a year-long project.  (Because clearly defining an issue is halfway to solving it!)

Friends, I believe so strongly in this work, I have arranged for our Kickoff session (February 7), to be made available to all… completely FREE OF CHARGE.

Whether or not you choose to continue with us (and I hope you do), you will leave with a clear picture of YOUR project for 2024.

If you are working on something important to you/important to the world, I would be THRILLED to be able to support you.

If the idea of finally DOING that big thing excites (and perhaps terrifies) you, please join us.

If you think it’s time to actually get the support you’ve been craving for years… Please join us.

If there is a quiet voice in your head that says, “I wonder if this might be for me…” Please join us.

Please EMAIL ME to express your interest.  (And mark your calendar for Wednesday, February 7, 4:00pm – -5:30pm Pacific Time).

I’ll get back to you with details.

Thank you for TAKING ACTION on your life!

R. Buckminster Fuller asks, “How do we make the world work for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone?”
