“We’re making this way more complicated than it needs to be.” Complication slows you down, scatters your efforts and leads to bad decisions.
When leaders simplify the complicated, you can move mountains.

Joe is a Principal in The Disruption Lab, a consulting group that helps companies with innovation strategies, and he has served as Executive In Residence at Belmont University’s Center For Entrepreneurship.

He has been inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame, and he brings a unique energy to his small group leadership workshops.
Joe lives in Nashville with his wife Annette, and their daughters Jessica and Cate.
“In 2016 I saw Joe was presenting at a rare public event, so myself and the wife flew from the UK to Vegas to see him. By then I had been coached for 3 years and figured I pretty much knew all there was to know. Boy! Was I wrong as Joe blew us away and made me realize I hadn’t even started my coaching journey yet.
When I saw Joe was offering private coaching I jumped at the chance. Having someone of Joe’s calibre to help me think things through, ask questions, and generally help me get to where I need to get to has been invaluable.
We are now planning a retreat with Joe for myself and our senior management team as I already know the value will far outweigh the cost. Rather than being one of those type events where you leave with 100 nice sounding things to implement which aren’t practical, we will leave Joe’s retreat with 3 solid things that we have thought through and which we can implement straight away.
Since working with Joe the company’s revenue has increased to seven figures with a high six figure profit. This kind of thing doesn’t happen by accident and I can confidently say if I had never worked with Joe things would likely be very different.”

Do The Crazy Thing
Do the crazy thing
The hard to imagine but
somehow you did thing
The brings you to your knees thing
The no one would ever do it that way thing
The safety net would not even matter thing
The it could kill you
but not trying is
another kind of death
The thing on your heart, do it
and let them gasp right before they call it
a thing of wonder
