Personal Development through the eyes of a behavioral specialist.
Ryan Lindner is a personal development specialist who has worked as a behavioral coach for clients and top organizations all over the world. After two sudden, unexplained cardiac arrests at a young age, he began to explore different perspectives with clients that come with any profound, life-changing event.
Tell us about you, your story, your background, and/or your business?:
I have conducted over 6,000 sessions for the US military, he has led operations for a major leadership and organizational change company, and manages learning and development projects for companies to reshape their customer experience.
Not only have I started a successful coaching business, but I have helped many entrepreneurs grow their own business. I specialize in company culture and help some big companies reshape that and decrease turnover and improve performance.
“I’m going down now,” I said to a young woman a few seconds before the darkness—my first cardiac arrest. As I returned to work as a behavioral coach, it became maddening to hear, for the ten-thousandth time, about all-consuming, everyday problems and misguided priorities while I fought to merely remain conscious.
The Half-Known Life challenges conventional thinking of success, identity, and personal change. Most often, truly-profound change happens following events that shake someone to their core—a car accident, death of a family member, or cardiac arrest that pulls them into a moment of clarity. Priorities change when time becomes precious. Problems look different when you have no energy left to give them. After all, marathon runners don’t say much on mile twenty; they choose to breathe. And all I have to give is channeled into each moment that I am awake and I, too, choose to breathe.
Why wait until you’re burnt out or for a life-changing event to occur before getting real about your life? Who are you when all of the accolades and accomplishments are gone? You can master time management but what does how you manage that time say about what’s important to you—about what matters most?
Get out of your head and get into your life, before it slips away.
What “Knowledge” or “golden nuggets of wisdom” do you want to share with our audience?:
How a small shift helps create amazing connections that redefine company culture.
As companies grow, many encounter major shifts in employee retention/turnover. The leaders of these companies, I've found, have one thing in common; they are mostly unaware what's causing it.
I often help leaders shift their culture to one that's INTERACTIONAL, not TRANSACTIONAL. Specifically in business, it's important to shift to seeing employees as people, not roles. There are several ways to do this, and it's going to require leaders look at their approach very differently.
What is one CALL TO ACTION you would like to extend to our audience to apply in their lives?: YOU determine how you're going to show up in the world. "I'm busy" is not a reason why you can't be the catalyst for change.
