I'm sure you've noticed how difficult it is to consume quality information these days, right?

  • You can take advantage of that dog walk or daily commute & use that time to improve both your personal & professional life

  • Daryl talks to guests just as if they are meeting for coffee. It is a casual yet deeply insightful discussion.

  • You WILL leave each & every episode with something you can use.  

  • Toxic workplaces, bad bosses, misery, intimidation, bullying & fear-based leadership should be a thing of the past. 

Where You Might Be At Work or Home

  • Feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, 'stressed'out, exhausted

  • You know the technical parts of your job but it's the 'people'' part that you find challenging

  • Little to no formal training

  • Guided by what NOT to do rather than what 'right'looks like

  • You genuinely want to figure out the 'people'part better

What Might Be Blocking You to Solve Some Of Your Challenges

  • A To Do list that grows faster than it shrinks

  • Not sure where to even start

  • Trying to manage multiple spinning plates!

  • Lack of quality coaching & mentorship

  • No proven or consistent methodology or approach
