    JeVon McCormick and the Modern Leader

    JeVon McCormick and the Modern Leader

    I could not wait to talk again with JeVon McCormick. On our new season, I am joined by Ellis Fitch and Anthony Garone.
    We dive into JeVon's second book, Modern Leader, including a chat about the foreword written by the one and only David Goggins. JeVon talks about how that came about.
    We dive into a substantial moment in JeVon's life, and part of the motivation for his latest book. Making the decision to go by JeVon instead of J.T. (which you'll hear him referred to in our season 1 interview here), he talks about "the broken playbook" that we all play by, and how he made the decision to own his full name, and what he hopes to see by doing that.
    Allen talks about a story in the book about a drive JeVon took with his dad through an area of River Oaks, and how some of those moments motivated him to write this latest book as well. JeVon talks about who he specifically wanted to reach with this message.
    Allen mentions a phenomenon that JeVon brought up in the book about shaming people for asking questions. JeVon talks about the responsibility of people to teach rather than to take the position that it "isn't my responsibility to teach them". 
    Ellis and JeVon dive into DEI initiatives (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion), particularly within publicly traded companies, and JeVon talks about how some of the intentions are misguided.
    JeVon talks about some interesting examples about changing the playbook, and cites the example of the change of leadership and pattern of succession at TIAA-CREF, and how now Thasunda Brown Duckett is the current CEO.
    Anthony asks about what practical top-down solutions  companies can put in practice to affect real change to the broken playbook.

    Gary Robinson: From Prison to Believing in Your Genius

    Gary Robinson: From Prison to Believing in Your Genius

    Gary Robinson is an author and speaker whose search for purpose after being arrested and sentenced to 15 years in prison. Ultimately he made changes that led him to inspire others to believe in themselves and the genius that they have inside.
    Gary talked about being arrested at age 20 for armed robbery and his “rewired moment” when he was sitting in his jail cell and realized that he needed to change. The way he'd handled things up until that point didn’t work. He prayed not to leave jail as the same type of person he was when he came in.
    He spoke about his childhood - watching his mom get arrested and being raised by his great-grandmother. He was surprised to find himself put in a Bible study group in prison by a relative he knew from his youth; reuniting with his cousin and how that experience helped him get out of the fixed mindset he was in. During that time he also met Lester Young. Among a few others, Lester was a tremendous influence. If you haven't heard my interview with Lester, you should. The inspiration and wisdom shared between these two gentlemen is incredible, and the fact that Lester's intervention in Gary's life was so profound will come as no surprise.
    Hitting rock bottom and recognizing that you need help can be a treacherous journey, and Gary's experiences are truly the epitome of that.
    He recounts Robin Sharma's quote, “Delete the energy vampires from your life, clean out all complexity, build a team around you that frees you to fly, remove anything toxic, and cherish simplicity, because that’s where genius lives.” His approach to life now is simple - figure out your purpose and be great at it.
    You can buy a copy of his book Mining the Diamond in You: A Journey of Reinvention and Transformation here.

    Kirk Nurmi: From Public Scruitny and Cancer to Happiness

    Kirk Nurmi: From Public Scruitny and Cancer to Happiness

    When people go to describe this guest on Rewired Mind, they may want to say attorney, speaker, author etc. but Kirk Nurmi would just like to simply be known as a human being. The quote “no one wants to die with music still left inside them” by Dr. Wayne Dyer has been an inspiration for Kirk.
    He famously was the defense attorney in the Jodi Arias trial, which lasted from January 2013- April 2015. During this 2 ½ year period, he faced threats and public scrutiny, leading him to step away from law and even getting diagnosed with cancer as a result of the pressure from the trial.
    As a result of the cancer, Kirk changed his focus to make his happiness a priority, something he had not done in the years prior to the diagnosis. The biggest question that he had to answer was “Am I Happy?” This forced him to examine areas of his life and make decisions based on how he answered that question.
    A book he would recommend is I Can See Clearly Now by Wayne Dyer.
    You can buy his book Defend Your Greatness here.
