I first met this week's guest in person before a workshop in Costa Mesa. It was a cloudy morning that day - a bit hazy, a bit foggy, but not the least bit dreadful or gloomy. He'd flown in the night before from the east coast, and I thought to myself that a bit of hospitality is in order, so I offered to take him out to this place called Rooster's Cafe - a little cozy diner that always had a line out the door. He agreed, and before the sun could peak behind the clouds, we got two breakfast burritos, coffee, and some laughs to start the day. Now, I'd met him before, but virtually, digitally...and the sense you get from distally meeting someone on the net over a screen vs face-to-face, proximally human-to-human is always a pleasant one in favor of the latter. But the very first thing I noticed about him - he's got a big smile, radiant energy yes, but the first thing I picked up right away was that this man was a man of integrity. And his name is none other than Jeremy Fein. Not only is he the creator of the Striving Coaches Group, but he's also one of the Head Coaches at the Movement Guild, and a master juggler; he's got a big smile, an even bigger heart, and every time I speak with Jeremy, it's always a good and productive time. This conversation covers centering values in work, the myopia of Coaching, professional and personal life, the myth of work-life balance, leading vs. lagging metrics, attaching goals to processes, self-organization, self-judgment, and more. To connect with Jeremy, you can contact him at feinmovement.com (f-e-i-n) or on Instagram @jeremyfein. I'll have to note that there were some audio issues in the beginning, so the conversation starts with Jeremy's answer to the following question, "One myth that exists in business is that there's this perception that marketing or business endeavors have to be sleazy to work; mostly because there are so many examples of slimeballs that you can probably think of immediately off the top of your head. How do you address that with the people who come to you for coaching? And what are some other common patterns or myths that you see?" With that, I'll drop you right into the conversation. Thanks everyone - enjoy.
