From School To Work

This week’s (less intense) video is a continuation of our throwback to my book “I Went to School that Long for This!?” The video is an excerpt from the book… and features one of the concepts that’s been the most eye-opening for people. Sometimes I’m fascinated by how relevant my research from 12 years ago still seems today. I hope you enjoy!

Finding Life’s Purpose

I  released a video in partnership with Motivation2Study, a HUGE channel on YouTube (over 1 million subscribers). The video came with a limited time offer to download my groundbreaking book: I Went the School that Long for This?!

Choose Positivity

In my leadership training, I’m often helping people develop different behaviours in order to create a different future. This week’s video offers an eye-opening life leadership concept much deeper than that… different beliefs, different future.

I won’t say any more. I hope you enjoy… and it makes you pause and think.


Self-awareness is at the core of our personal and professional development because it always points us back to the truth.

This video is short, succinct and hopefully a helpful reminder. Enjoy!

Working Around The World Ep.6 – Colombia

The country we’re exploring this time is Colombia. And the lesson? Well, you’ll just need to watch, won’t you?

This is the project that’s been propelling me around the world, intimately researching the human relationship with work. What we continue to learn is amazing and humbling. These videos are our invitation to come along for the extraordinary ride.

Go Where The Fear Is

This video was inspired by a great friend, Shayne Cowan-Cholette’s university valedictorian speech. He just happened to be a captain of their football team as well (yeah, he’s one of those all-star friends).

His message was: go where the fear is. I think there’s a message for all of us in this one. I hope you enjoy.

Vision 2020

Excited about this one! It’s a glimpse into our next steps with YoungLeaders.World… and the invitation may be a better fit for someone you know.

In spring of 2020, YoungLeaders.World (the not-for-profit we founded in 2015) is holding a global leadership summit in Edmonton for students in grade 9 – 12. This video is a glimpse into the summit and the opportunity.

Mindset Reset

I felt these simple ideas (that we often drift from) needed a reminder… for myself included.

The question today is: what do you after you’ve made a decision that feels wrong? Because… we’re going to get lots of things wrong. This video explore core principles of life leadership. Enjoy.

Working Around The World – Mexico

I had so much fun filming this one… and we’d tried a slightly different style for this episode. Part of this Working Around the World project is uncovering new, first-hand insights into work across the globe. The other part is learning how to host and film a docu-series. One has come easier than the other (you can guess).

The lesson in this episode shook me. Not because it was the first time I’ve run into it… but it may have been the first time I’ve had such a unique opportunity to understand the full story. I’ll say no more.

Blind Spot

This video explains my major career shift, it’s the story behind it all. And touches on a sensitive topic for me (and all of us). I’m curious to hear your experience from when you confronted your blind spot.
