My New Book Is Available NOW!

Leadership, Legacy, Life

I am absolutely delighted to tell you my new book, Igniting the Invisible Tribe: Designing An Organization That Doesn’t Suck, is available now!

Official site:

This book is a simple and straightforward way to understand how the business marketplace has changed. Of course, many people are talking about how the world is evolving. But unfortunately, these people are scattered across many different disciplines and industries, and it’s difficult to put all the pieces together without a major investment of time and extra thought.

Igniting the Invisible Tribe was written to make sense of all these big changes. I tried my best to pull together years of research into a cohesive, compelling, and easy-to-read narrative. If you are wondering how the world of work has changed and are looking for an easy way to understand it—and more importantly, what to do differently now—Igniting the Invisible Tribe is for you, your friends, or your team at work!

But you don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s what some much more credible folks are saying.

It’s currently available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or, if you’d like a signed copy, directly from me. Discount bulk/organizational pricing is available, too.

eBooks will also be available in just a few weeks — if you’d like me to let you know when they’re ready to buy, shoot me a message.

I hope you find something of value in these pages! To a very large degree, readers like you are the reason I’ve been working so hard on this for the past few years. As always, thanks for reading!

Featured On Switch & Shift

Leadership, Life

A new friend of mine (and now a Strengthscope Accredited Partner of ours, as well), Shawn Murphy,  has a terrific website called Shift & Switch where he and his co-authors are constantly showcasing and exploring better ways to do business.

Over the next few weeks, they’ve gathered what they call their “League of Extraordinary Thinkers” to contribute posts around the topic of employee engagement. I am completely honored to be a voice in the chorus.

For my guest post, I wanted to explore some of the “deeper” issues that keep us from creating more energizing workplaces. We ended up splitting it into two parts:

Why Engagement Sucks, And The Two Things We Need To Fix It – Part 1

Why Engagement Sucks, And The Two Things We Need To Fix It – Part 2

Please stop by, leave a comment (or two!) and support the other fantastic writers/thinkers that are part of this series.

After all, where do you spend more of your time than work?

There are few conversations more important than how to better the place where we spend the majority of our lives.

Lessons From SANG


Last week I had the pleasure to attend a conference called SANG (Speakers & Authors Networking Group).

In today’s post I thought I’d do something a little different and share a few of the most important/memorable things I came away with:


  • “It’s not about what I know, it’s about what they learn.” – Adam Markel
  • “Make the audience laugh and think within the first minute of your talk.” – Jeffrey Gitomer
  • “Value isn’t what you think it is. It’s what they think it is.” – Jay Abraham


  • “In life, make all decisions based on the person you want to become.” – Jeffrey Gitomer
  • “There are two things that will change your life: Either something new comes into your life, or something new comes out of you.” – Brendon Burchard
  • “You need a system to clean out your mind. And, by the way, you don’t clean out your mind through drinking or meditating — drinking simply numbs it and meditating leaves it behind. You need another way to clean it out.” – David Allen
  • “People buy when they’re ready to buy, not when you’re ready to sell.” – Jeff Mask


1) Green School Bali

Named the “Greenest School On Earth” in 2012. Watch this powerful video to get a taste of how cool they are (made by a high school freshman).

2) Mindvalley

An incredibly innovative company based in Malaysia and on a mission to “empower 1 billion lives” by doing crazy stuff like open sourcing their entire business.

3) The Fascination Advantage

If you enjoy personality assessments, this one is pretty fun. And in my cursory review, fairly accurate! Learn more about it here.
