Welcome to Decoding Disruptors, a special edition of the Finding Mastery podcast presented without interruption by Microsoft. I want to share a bit of a backstory on my relationship with MSFT -- For the past 8 years, Compete to Create and I have had the privilege of working with them, beginning with their CEO, Satya Nadella, and his executive team -- and then an additional 30,000 people across the company.  Microsoft has radically transformed under Satya’s leadership, with his emphasis on building a culture around mindset, inclusion and diversity to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.   When Microsoft talks to its customers about reinventing their business they talk about technology, data, security and privacy but the number one thing that drives organizational transformation is cultural change. This series is the company’s initiative to celebrate 9 female industry leaders who have transformed themselves and their businesses. Microsoft is fulfilling its responsibility of bringing these incredible stories to its customers. This organization truly cares about people and the psychological skills they need to flourish so I couldn’t be more excited to partner with Microsoft in bringing this series to life. Decoding Disruptors takes a deep dive into the minds of extraordinary women who have disrupted the narrative in their businesses, industries, and communities.  In a culture that’s mesmerized by tips, tricks, strategies, shortcuts and advice to be successful, my intention was to illuminate something far more foundational – the beliefs, the inner narratives that shape our identities and set the parameters for what’s possible in our lives. In short, I wanted to understand the mindset of these women who have mapped their own course in the world of business. I sat down with 9 women – we filmed each of them — it’s incredible — we’ve created condensed clips based on their insights — it’s really amazing — and you can watch them on decodingdisruptors.com -  We’ve decided to release a few of them with extended footage on the Finding Mastery podcast feed – and in this first episode, I sit down with Bozoma Saint John.   She’s a marketing rock star who has led some of the world’s biggest brands. She’s currently the CMO of Endeavor, formerly William Morris Endeavor, the most powerful talent agency in Hollywood that sits at the epicenter of culture. Previous to that she was at Uber. Apple Music and iTunes, Beats and PepsiCo. Bozoma was inducted into Billboard’s “Women in Music Hall of Fame” and she was also featured on AdWeek’s cover as one of the most exciting personalities in advertising.  All that being said, Bozoma’s superpower is her AUTHENTICITY. In this episode, you’ll get a sense of how she unapologetically brings herself into a room and just lights it up.

This week’s conversation is with retired U.S. Army Major Matt Brady. Matt is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point where he was ranked #1 of 940 cadets in leadership for 7 consecutive semesters and graduated in the top 5% of his class overall. While serving in the Army on active duty, Matt flew over 2,000 hours in the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior (Reconnaissance), MH- 47D, and MH-47G Chinook helicopters (Army Special Operations). A seasoned combat veteran, he has deployed 12 times to both Iraq and Afghanistan and commanded forces during multiple high stakes/pressure conflicts including the 3rd Infantry Division charge to Baghdad in 2003 and “Operation REDWING,” the tragic SEAL mission depicted in the movie “Lone Survivor.” His awards include the Air Medal for combat Valor in both Iraq and Afghanistan and the Bronze Star Medal. Matt retired from the U.S. Army in late 2016 after two decades of service to the Nation. There is so much to unpack in this conversation. I’m sure many of you are familiar with the “Lone Survivor” story but for those who aren’t, definitely take a moment and look up it. While Matt was fortunate enough to survive that mission, the decisions he faced that day lived with him for years afterwards. And that’s a focal point of this conversation. What was his thought process like in an incredibly hostile situation? One that was near impossible to prepare for? How did he cope with those decisions after the fact and how did it impact his life? You may rethink what you deem as a “difficult decision” and the things that are worth “dwelling on” after listening to this conversation.

This week’s conversation is with Kevin Carroll, an author, speaker and creative catalyst. It is Kevin’s job to inspire businesses, organizations and individuals - from CEOs and employees of Fortune 500 companies to schoolchildren - to embrace their spirit of play and creativity to maximize their human potential and sustain more meaningful business and personal growth. He has helped turn creative ideas into reality for organizations such as Nike, Starbucks, Adidas, Walt Disney, Target, Proctor & Gamble, Under Armour, Mattel, the NBA and many others. The focus of this conversation is much more about how Kevin became the man he is today rather than the “what” of his accomplishments so I want to give a quick rundown of Kevin’s stops along the way. Raised by his grandparents in Philadelphia, Kevin spent endless hours at the neighborhood playground where he found his calling: a red rubber ball. His subsequent pursuit of play and his ‘red rubber ball’ took him overseas with the Air Force, where he served as a language interpreter and translator, gaining fluency in Croatian, Czech, Serbian, and German. After serving in the Air Force for ten years and earning his college degree, Kevin became an athletic trainer at the high school and collegiate levels in Philadelphia. His expertise in sport performance recognized by the 76ers organization and led to his job as the Head Athletic Trainer for the Philadelphia 76ers in 1995. While at the 76ers, Nike tapped Kevin to bring his unique experiences to the sneaker giant in 1997. Although no job “officially” existed at the time, Kevin was directed to create a position at the company that would add value to the overall mission of the brand. Kevin left Nike in 2004 to create his own company, Kevin Carroll Katalyst, committed to elevating the power of sport and play around the world.   This episode is brought to you by: Athletic Greens: The most complete supplement for a better you.

This week’s conversation is with Annabel Anderson, the world #1 female SUP athlete from 2012-2017. Annabel has won the biggest titles in the sport of stand up paddling multiple times – She’s a 5x world champion, has beaten the best men in the sport, and orchestrated the campaign that resulted for equal pay and opportunities for female athletes globally. She is also an elite cyclist & mountain biker, skier, sailor, and surfer. If there was ever anyone who lived up to the moniker of versatile – Annabel Anderson is it. Career ending injuries curtailed a promising ski racing and triathlon career as a young athlete resulting in 11 major surgeries by the age of 24. Versatility, adaptability, and a relentless pursuit for marginal gains became common themes. But maybe the greatest challenge lies yet. This past year, she's had multiple freak accidents resulting in an extremely broken body. The challenge is now to return to normal function and to face what ever the next chapter holds. This conversation cuts right to the center of how Annabel became the person she is today and what’s been behind her success. It’s not everyday we get to hear from someone who’s won as much as Annabel and I think you’ll be interested to learn her views on it: In Annabel’s words: “Winning is really fun the first or second time and then it becomes normal, and then it becomes expected. How do you raise and elevate and deal with the internal pressure and the expectations of others? When winning becomes the one dependent it’s not exactly a great game to be playing. It has a finite end.” I can't wait for you to learn from Annabel.   This episode is brought to you by: Athletic Greens: The most complete supplement for a better you.

This week’s conversation is with Brendan Kane, a business and digital growth strategist for Fortune 500 corporations, brands, and celebrities. Brendan’s greatest strength is unlocking value. He transforms complexity into simplicity with tools and methods that amplify growth and enable execution. He thrives on helping his clients systematically find and engage new audiences. Brendan's success stories include massive global brands like Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Jason Statham, Katie Couric, MTV, Vice, Lionsgate, and Yahoo. This conversation has something for everyone: whether you own a business, are considering starting one or are just thinking about your personal brand. The power of social media allows you or your organization to impact many, to get your message in front of the right people, but in today’s world capturing someone’s attention is not an easy feat. More than 60 billion online messages are sent into the world every day, and only a select few companies can succeed in the mad scramble for customer attention. This means that the question for anyone who wants to gain mass exposure for their transformative content, business, brand or connect with audiences around the globe is no longer if they should use social media but how to best take advantage of the numerous different platforms. How can you make a significant impact in the digital world and stand out among all the noise? That’s at the core of what we discuss in this conversation. Brendan shares his methods for gaining an authentic, dedicated, and diverse online following from scratch; create personal, unique, and valuable content that will engage your core audience. He just published a book that’s jam-packed with these insights- One Million Followers: How I Built a Massive Social Following in 30 Days.

This week’s conversation is with Matt Jacobson, Head of Market Development at Facebook. In this role, he focuses on strategic partnerships that connect people to some of the world's most recognized brands. Facebook may be one of the world’s largest companies today, but it wasn’t when Matt joined as employee number 8 over 13 years ago. He took a leap of faith at the time – he believed in their mission and their founder, Mark Zuckerberg, and began working for no salary, only equity. You could say that bet paid off. What gave Matt the confidence to join Facebook? His intellectual curiosity has been a driving force for him for since he was young. In this conversation, we discuss how that intellectual curiosity has allowed him to stay ahead of the curve, take risks and opened up new opportunities. Matt understands, values, and invests deeply in relationships so it’s no surprise that his philosophy is: “To be the best part of another person’s day.” What a cool thought.

This week’s conversation is with Michael Murphy, co-founder and chairman emeritus of the board of the world famous Esalen Institute, tucked away on the coast of Big Sur, in California. Michael and Esalen have been ground zero for the human potential movement: exploring everything from consciousness, Eastern philosophies meeting Western frameworks, the birth place of Gestalt therapy, to generating scores of mind body interventions. In 1950, Michael was a premed student at Stanford and wandered into a class discussing Eastern and Western philosophies and religions. The miscue changed his life. Soon he was meditating and, after earning a bachelor of arts in psychology and serving in the U.S. Army, he lived on an ashram in India for 18 months. Upon returning to the United States, he and the late Richard Price started Esalen on property the Murphy family owned.  Over its 50-plus years of existence, it has been described as a “personal growth think tank.” The organization is focused on personal growth, meditation, massage, ecology, yoga, psychology, spirituality — there was nothing quite like it at the time. Michael is also an author. His work includes:  ·     The Future of the Body: Explorations into the Further Evolution of Human Nature, Golf in the Kingdom ·     The Life We Are Given: A Long-Term Program for Realizing the Potential of Body, Mind, Heart, and Soul ·     In the Zone: Transcendent Experience in Sports ·      An End to Ordinary History It's a gift to laugh with him and learn from Michael, and I'm honored to share our conversation.

Javier is a 5x International Triathlete Union (ITU) World Champion, 2x Ironman 70.3 World Champion, a 9 time world ITU number 1, and won a Silver medal for Spain at the 2012 Summer Olympics in men's triathlon. Simply put, he is a legend in the sport. Javier is currently in the final stages of training for the Ironman World Championship, which will take place on October 13 in Kona, Hawaii. You can learn more about Javi's pursuit to win Kona here. For those unfamiliar with the Ironman, it consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and 26.2 mile marathon run. No matter how you slice it, this endurance event is rugged, and that’s why I was so excited to talk with Javier about his experience preparing and training for it. Last year’s winner completed the race in just over 8 hours. That’s a lot of time for your mind to wander if you aren’t disciplined - and it’s something we discuss in this conversation. Javi shares how he manages positive and negative thoughts, his process for remaining calm, and how he overcomes intense pain during competition. So much of what goes into training and succeeding in endurance sports is applicable to other aspects of life. It requires persistence, an appreciation for the process, and a willingness to play the long game.

This week’s conversation is with Dr. Mark Goulston, a Board Certified Psychiatrist, a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and a former UCLA Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry. Mark has specialized in psychotherapy for more than thirty years focusing on suicide prevention, death and dying, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, PTSD and marital therapy. After a recent string of high-profile suicides in America, death by suicide is a topic that's on a lot of our minds. Most of us are likely to know or love somebody who has been affected by a suicide. Since September is Suicide Prevention Month, this is a good time to seek understanding about these tragic experiences. You might be surprised by the global rate of suicide: According to the World Health Organization, "Close to 800,000 people die due to suicide every year, which is one person every 40 seconds. Many more attempt suicide. For every person who commit suicide, there's another 20 who attempted." My family has been impacted by suicide - I lost my uncle to this way of dying. Everyone who loved him dearly wishes we could have helped, but we couldn't. This conversation is about learning how to better connect with those in need - through listening, empathy and compassion.   This episode is brought to you by: Athletic Greens: Receive a free 20-count travel pack of Athletic Greens (valued at $99) with any purchase!

This week’s conversation is with Mark Healey, a professional big-wave surfer, award-winning spear-fisherman, free-diver, photographer, filmmaker, and part-time Hollywood stuntman. Mark’s made no shortage of major achievements in his career as a waterman. Earning his first surf sponsorship at age 13 and going pro at 17, the 31-year-old has racked up victories at big-wave events like Todos Santos and—in 2008—nabbed the Spearfishing World Cup. While he’s encountered his share of close calls—from shark attacks to blackouts—Mark thrives on the elements of danger inherent to his work. And that is a central part of this conversation. We discuss embracing challenges and why it’s important to face adversity head on rather than run from it. When you get to that edge, that point where you’re uncomfortable, that’s where you really learn what’s possible for yourself. Mark is wise beyond his years and I can’t wait for you to learn from him.

After taking a break for summer, “The Process” is back!  Alex and Mike discuss the latest with Kairos: how their recent investments have fared and what’s in store for their upcoming K50 event in late November. The K50 program is a global recognition of the 50 most-innovative startups from around the world, with young founders tackling global challenges. Companies are awarded at the top of the World Trade Center in front of 100 of the most influential CEOs, investors, media, and leaders of today.  Alex then invites on Michael Wong, founder of Homevest, a company they are considering investing in. Alex wants Mike to get a chance to meet a founder pre-investment and assess whether he has what it takes to execute on his ambitious vision. Homevest is a service helping homebuyers purchase their first home by contributing to the down payment. They don’t lend money - instead they invest with you in a new home, sharing ownership, the mortgage and expenses proportionately.  Homevest creates a halfway point between buying and renting. Partnering with Homevest means you just pay what you can afford for the down payment, and buy part of a home first, instead of waiting and saving for years. Homevest buys the other part of the home and rents it back to you. As a co-investor, you can repurchase home equity at any point, and you alone control when to sell.

This week’s conversation is with Aaron Bruno, best known as the founder and lead singer of AWOLNATION. Formed in 2010, AWOLNATION crafted one of the most influential songs in years with the chart-topping, record-breaking track “Sail.” The first single off the gold-certified full-length debut Megalithic Symphony, “Sail” was certified 6x platinum in the US and holds the record for the most weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart by an independent artist, the second longest for any artist. Sail had a profound impact on me. We talk about that in the podcast - how his music helped me get the vibe right for a mindset training project that I was working on It’s amazing how music can do that. The same song can mean so many different things to so many different people. Different emotions, feelings, memories - and that’s something we discuss - why music means so much to Aaron and why he’s so passionate about it coming from an authentic place. It’s clear how much Aaron loves music, but he wasn’t always destined for stardom. He was a member of multiple bands that never made it and reached the point where others around him thought he should give it up. Think about that as you listen to this conversation. How well are you connected to what matters most to you - to the inner ache, that burning ache - and if you are - are you willing to give up just about everything else for it?  This episode is brought to you by: Athletic Greens: Receive a free 20-count travel pack of Athletic Greens (valued at $99) with any purchase!

This week’s conversation is with Tom Bilyeu, the co-founder of Quest Nutrition — a unicorn startup valued at over $1 billion — and the co-founder and host of Impact Theory. Why did I want to sit down with Tom? Tom is driven to help people develop the skills they need to improve themselves and the world. It’s not every day that we get to learn from someone who created a billion dollar business. I wanted to understand his mindset, his approach to leadership, and what he’s most hungry for. Tom is very clear about what he wants and what he believes in and that definitely is apparent in this conversation. In Tom’s words, “What I do is with a very high degree of intention. I am very much not stumbling my way through life.” I hope Tom’s clarity inspires you to spend your own time getting clear on what you want and what you stand for, if you haven’t done so already.

This week’s conversation is with Michael Rosenbaum, actor, producer, and comedian. The diverse actor has worked in over twenty films, such as Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Hit and Run, Urban Legend, Sweet November, Bringing Down The House, Pool Hall Junkies and Sorority Boys. Michael has worked with everyone from Bradley Cooper and Sylvester Stallone to Christopher Walken and Clint Eastwood. He portrayed Lex Luthor on the smash hit Smallville for seven years and voiced The Flash on the hit animated series The Justice League Unlimited. In this conversation Michael shares the highs and lows of being an actor in Hollywood – how he’s had to work on caring less what others think and focus on getting to the center of who he truly is and what matters most to him. I appreciated Michael willingness to show vulnerability. This episode is brought to you by: Athletic Greens: Receive a free 20-count travel pack of Athletic Greens (valued at $99) with any purchase!
