The Leader’s Toolkit is an exclusive weekly interview that I do with a leader, thinker, or best-selling author. Today’s 15 minute video is with John Force, legendary drag racing champion. We discussed unique strategies for managing stress and pressure in high-stakes situations, his personal battle with depression, offering insights into his natural coping mechanisms and resilience, and the importance of passion and dedication in team-building.

Today's episode provides valuable insights into resilience, passion, and the importance of surrounding oneself with the right people, which can be applied in various aspects of life and work.

Have you heard the big news about my new book!?

Leaders are asked to be confident, competent, strong, and visionary. Yet on the other hand, employees also want their leaders to share their challenges, struggles, and mistakes. How can leaders reconcile both of these truths?

Vulnerability for leaders is not the same as it is for everyone else and my over 100 CEO interviews and survey of 14,000 employees proves it! So how can leaders approach vulnerability in the right way that allows them to unlock the potential of others, create trust, and lead through change? Pre-order your copy to find out and email me proof of HARDCOVER purchase to and I’ll send you 5 exclusive CEO interviews, and invite to a webinar I’m hosting about the book, and the first 3 chapters of the book before it gets released!
