    How He Grasped Hope and Found Healing After Paralysis: Chris Leeuw #66

    How He Grasped Hope and Found Healing After Paralysis: Chris Leeuw #66

    Chris Leeuw had his entire life ahead of him -- and it looked very bright. A self-described "adrenaline junkie," he reveled in outdoor activities like water-skiing and kayaking and loved his job in local TV news. It all changed in a tragic instant. Chris, at 28, was paralyzed from the neck down in a freak recreational diving accident -- and thought he'd never walk or be able to care for himself again.  But despite the physical and financial crucibles he faced, he refused to give up. Chris let every physical sensation he began to feel again fuel his drive to pursue the most cutting-edge treatment and rehabilitation -- and work tirelessly to achieve the healing he once dared not imagine was possible. Now, just more than a decade later, he has regained much of his mobility and something just as life-changing: a passion for helping others with spinal-cord injuries via the nonprofit rehabilitation center he founded.

    The Power of Purpose: John Ramstead #64

    The Power of Purpose: John Ramstead #64

    Some people may look at John Ramstead's life and say he’s lost a lot. Crucibles cost him his dream of being a Top Gun fighter pilot, almost ruined him professionally and financially and nearly killed him in an accident that led to dozens of surgeries over two years -- and still left him with physical challenges. Yet Ramstead, an in-demand leadership coach and successful podcast host, says those "losses" helped him find the most important things in his life: his faith and his purpose. He recounts it all in his new book On Purpose, With Purpose: Discovering How to Live Your Best Life -- which offers readers insights and action steps to find the true north essential to navigating the journey of their lives.

    Build Your Resilience: Taryn Marie Stejskal #63

    Build Your Resilience: Taryn Marie Stejskal #63

    Adversity, Taryn Marie Stejskal says, is a trip we take.  Resilience paves the road we walk to move beyond it. As one of the foremost international experts on building and exercising resilience in business and in life, Stejskal has crafted the Five Practices of Particularly Resilient People through exhaustive research into the subject ... and informed by her harrowing experience of being stalked in high school by a man who eventually assaulted another victim.  It's not the absence of crucibles that determines our future, she tells Warwick, but what we learn from them and how we apply that wisdom.
     
    Learn more about Stejskal and her practical and empirical insights into resilience by visiting www.resilience-leadership.com or her Facebook page (@drtarynmarie) and her Instagram account (@drtarynmarie).

    Becoming Unbreakable -- Gregory Robinson #62

    Becoming Unbreakable -- Gregory Robinson #62

    Gregory Robinson's crucibles piled up in his youth: raised without a father, kicked out of the house at 16, eking out a day-to-day existence swiping soap from restaurants to wash up and making ends meet hustling pool while flopping with other boys from hardscrabble backgrounds. But his life began to turn around after a stint in juvenile detention set him on a path to get a job, join the military and build the responsibility and resilience that has led him to help others employ the principles that have made him The Unbreakable Man. The key, he says, is to never let defeat you.

    Don't Aim to Be the GOAT, Just Be the Best You #61

    Don't Aim to Be the GOAT, Just Be the Best You #61

    The Greatest of All Time. Shorthand, GOAT -- especially in sports contexts. But the single-minded pursuit of being the best (fill in the blank) in your sphere of influence can invade your professional and personal life, too. And when it does, it can be dangerous. Crucible Leadership founder and BEYOND THE CRUCIBLE host Warwick Fairfax talks with cohost Gary Schneeberger about why we should avoid chasing GOATdom – and, more importantly, how to do it.  Warwick unpacks five insightful steps we can take to decouple our achievements from our identity to help us pursue a life of significance and a legacy we can be proud of. "Truly great leaders," he explains, "don’t focus on their own greatness."

Crucible Crazy

I think the hosts do a brilliant job of peeling back the layers to have their guests reveal what severe trial (crucible) lead to the creation of something new. I’d recommend this show to anyone stuck in their career or life.

A true leader of the world

It’s been an honor to meet both Gary and Warwick personally through an interview. I have been a die hard number one big fan for this podcast ever since. The stories from this podcast are inspirational, insightful and informational. A rare find in a world like this where we are bombarded by information. This podcast stands out and it is a great reflection of hard work and dedication from Warwick and Gary.

For anyone looking to level up their personal and professional lives

Gary is a very professional host who puts the guest and listener first so the audience takes away the best nuggets and content as possible from the interview. I hope you find this podcast as helpful, useful, and inspirational as I do.
