What would you expect from a consultant specializing in the formation and launch of new businesses, the review and turn-around of existing companies, and optimization of operations, management team, business or revenue model, and marketing/sales strategy? This conversation is quite different than you would expect. Doug is more about BEing than DOing and assists others in doing so at organizational levels.
What does 'sovereignty' mean to you? Do you have it? Do you know you have it? Doug dives into his inner side of reality quickly to note that even if we don't want to admit it's there... it is. He relates a quick story about his introduction to a 'sensitive' and what she shared with him. What was your process for determining your life's course? Have you found one yet?
Doug reveals that early in life he really had no emotional connection to it. Life was about accomplishing, doing stuff and having things without much thought for others. He themes his beginnings as a contemporary version of a Neanderthal. Graduating from an Ivy League school with a law degree was no small accomplishment, though the 'work' kept him from connecting with life.
Even with the accomplishments he says he was rather bereft of self-awareness and consciousness. The entertainment industry was is home for a bit, culminating in a couple of artists with top five and top ten accomplishments. He had dramatic rise to success and an equally dramatic crash and burn. How did he move through that? Listen in...
Zen asks Doug to highlight some of the nuggets of learning along the way. HIs big take away, and offering, is don't feel like you have to go through all kinds of rites of passage to get somewhere; just go for it. Doug shares his experience in transforming his idea of reality (26 employees, top artists, offices and studios around the world) to being invited to a weekend personal development workshop that was extremely uncomfortable. You'll love what happened next. Listen in...
If you had the chance to transform your life into something you really need and want, why would you wait? Oh, there's a door that's scary to many and absolutely frightening to others. How many of those doors have you been presented with in your life and not taken advantage of them? How did you feel when you did walk through them?
Tuning in to this conversation could very well be one of those opportunities as Doug spells out the process that transformed his life over time and set him up with a new trajectory that he loves and offers a great reward in his service to others through organizational development.
