1. What have you found most challenging as a CEO or executive of a large enterprise?
Escaping the shadow of your past requires a shift in mindset, not to escape but to fully heal every aspect of your shadow and what triggers you. I've found most of my struggle at first is comparing myself to other CEOs but instead believe that I am unique and creative in my own ways. It is about being yourself, being accountable, and stepping in your own power.
2. How did you become a CEO or executive of a large enterprise? Can you please briefly tell the story?
I am taking all of the opportunities whenever possible. I've become a business director at first and founded my own company, Block Tides. Someone appointed me to be the Co-CEO of their company because of what he saw in me.
3. How do you structure your work days from waking up to going to sleep?
I have my own routine. I don't use my phone when I wake up. Meditation. Work out. Work. Inspired action. Meditate. End my day.
4. What's the most recent significant leadership lesson you've learned?
You need to motivate, take care, and prioritize yourself first before you can lead.
5. What's one book that has had a profound impact on your leadership so far? Can you please briefly tell the story of how that book impacted your leadership?
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. The important things: Be Proactive. Begin with the End in Mind. Put First Things First. Think Win-Win. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood. Synergize. Sharpen the Saw.
6. How do you build leadership capacity in a large enterprise?
It's about enthusiasm. I always work with positive energy, it is contagious. A good leader needs discipline. Developing discipline in your professional (and personal) life is a must in order to be an effective leader, and to inspire others to be disciplined as well. People will judge your capacity to lead by the amount of discipline you display at work.
7. What is one meaningful story that comes to mind from your time as a CEO or executive of a large enterprise so far?
I never realize that I have the capacity to inspire and motivate people. Your people may have all the expertise in the world but, if they're not motivated, it's unlikely that they'll achieve their true potential.
