Creating A System For Success
Having a system for success can set you apart and give you principles that you can apply in any environment. This system can help you make better decisions & create blueprints for where you want to go.
My “being in the zone” type of work is helping former professional or elite level athletes and coaches move from uncovering their passion (outside of their sport), aligning it to their purpose with a profession. I’ve created a course that will help you become a more effective influencer & grow your personal & professional brand.
There is a ton of misguided or surface level information about personal development out in the world today. I break it down to its core, which will give you a better understanding of who you are. Foundational not situational principles will be uncovered, giving you more confidence in how you show up and influence everyday no matter what environment you're in.
I am one of the few leadership development coaches that took what I've learned playing on the highest level of sports and implementing those same principles of personal and team success in the corporate world. I've been speaking with Fortune 100 brands, start-up companies & coaching top executives, managers, directors, former elite level athletes just like you & helping them become the person that they always wanted to be...I just give them a push & I hold a mirror up for them to see what others see in them.
My journey began after I finished playing professional football. I was lost...I didn’t know who I was! I knew how to be a HIGH PERFORMER i.e. great teammate, take in information at an incredible rate of speed and process it, as well as being great at paying attention to details but other than that Football was who I was...and once I finished, I went into a deep depression.
I came to grips that I needed to lead myself out of this dark place. I read leadership books, self-help books, and attended leadership seminars..but nothing gave me the results I was seeking.
My rock bottom hit when I applied for an entry-level non-profit job in Portland, Oregon. I had worked part-time for a non-profit in San Diego for 6-months, so I thought that I was a shoo-in for the role. During the interview process, the Director asked me questions about the organization...I was ready, but when she flipped the script and started asking me questions about myself, such as:
-What's your passion?
-Why do you want this job?
-What's your purpose?
-What is leadership?
I was stuck...I mean literally, STUCK! I didn't have an answer to any of these questions. After about 10 mins of questions like these, she finally told me, "Alex, I suggest you do some self-development and find out exactly who you are before you go on any more job interviews." She walked me out of the building. I went to my car, and I cried my eyes out!!! This lady who just met me told me that I didn't know who I was, and she was right!
I started looking back on the good coaches & teammates as well as the bad ones during my journey in football and I peeled back the layers that I felt were important. When I filtered everything through the lens of my old defensive back coach (Willie Shaw’s) formula of coaching... it made perfect sense to me. I also realized that I needed a coach to help me with my overall development. It was one of the best decisions I ever made...it wasn’t cheap either (50K) but the knowledge that I now had gave me the confidence to be a better coach to my high-performance athletes and I soon began to coach executives as well as get on stage and motivate and inspire people from all walks of life. Needless to say, it was a very good investment w/ a high ROI.
I've learned a great deal about what works and what doesn't.
During some dark months of my 1st year out of football, I became a shell of myself! My marriage and the way
I parented my kids were the worst!! I had no direction and zero confidence in myself. Then I thought back to the best Coach I ever had. His name was Willie Shaw and he had a simple formula.
I’ve been sharing my knowledge with companies such as Converse, Hiya & the Atlanta Falcons as well as executives, business owners & high-profile professional athletes.
I had figured out how to do this over and over again and apply it to different areas of my life.
I continued studying leadership and personal development with my coach until I had it down to a science and I became confident enough to step on stage to deliver my formula to the masses and organizations (workshops & retreats). I’ve been doing it since 2015..and have been reaping the rewards ever since!
