Today I delivered one of the best performances of my career as a professional keynote speaker.
But I did not do it alone.
I had Connie Podesta whispering in my ear telling me to ALWAYS make it about the audience and their needs.
I had David Mann telling me to make my stories relatable and relevant. (And properly staged!)
I had David Goldman giving me the funny lines where I had not seen them before.
I had Gretchen Grunzke tell me where I can weave my improv skills into the program.
My success today had the fingerprints of many talented professionals all over it, above and beyond my own. All great things we do are a group effort. Our job is to call forth those true experts who can tell us what we need to know (even if we don't want to initially hear it) and give us their best insights on how to be a peak performer.
Don't be afraid to have mentors and coaches that will challenge you, encourage you, and guide you to your best self. Only then will you rise higher and shine brighter than you ever thought possible.
