Lead. Inspire. Achieve.

Everyone can be a high performer: Let's get to work

Three decades leading in the military proved nearly everyone can reach high levels of performance if they're inspired, given the tools, and well-led by caring leaders. In the military, we spend enormous energy developing leaders and an ethos of teamwork with a sense of mission. Military people would rather face bullets and bombs than let their comrades down.

Now, it's my mission to pass on those lessons of leadership so others can reach their full potential. The real difference between high performance and mediocrity is leadership.

In my books, talks, and here on the blog you'll see how to lead authentically and accomplish your mission while building a team that works together. People need a purpose, not just a paycheck, and the Lead High Performance approach is the way to give your teams a purpose and cohesion to carry it out.
