Free course: Social confidence for introverts

As you might already know, for the last few weeks I’ve been working on a new, free course that was inspired by some of you guys! I, somewhat quietly, launched the course last week, and hardly without any promotion at all almost 2000 people from over 100 countries have signed up for it since! The…

How the word “we” made Lars $25 000

Ok, so it was a little more than just one word. But “we” was the critical word. You see, my client Lars was up for his annual salary negotiations and he felt like he was underpaid, which was causing him to consider looking for a new employer. After he explained his situation to me, I…

The question that helps people open up

My client was frustrated because one of his own coaching clients would shut down whenever he was asked a personal question. “I don’t get it,” my client said. “This guy is paying me to help him, but he still stonewalls me whenever anything personal comes up. All I get is excuses and deflections.” This is…

Personally, I sit more towards the introverted side. Though if you…

I f***ed up, let me make sure you don’t too!

I have a very one-track mind. And no, (in this particular case) I’m not talking about naughty things! I have a tendency to get hyper-focused on one thing at the time. Usually something new and exciting. And if that thing is something big, something that demands a lot of time and effort, it can steal…

Knowledge junkies never take action.

“I’ve tried everything,” Eric told me. “I’ve read all the books, gone to the seminars, talked to the coaches. And though I like your stuff, I would like to know why you think you’ll be different?” I took a moment to reflect on the question. It occurred to me that usually when someone says they’ve…
