    In our industry, those who have a large brand, social media presence or product (regardless of value or purpose) are often met with critiques, sneers, and snide remarks like “what a sellout”...


    It’s difficult to put yourself out there when surrounded by a profession that has long told you the secret to success is to put your head down and work harder but no one will hear your message or benefit from your product if you don’t share it with them... So how do you stand out without selling out?


    In today’s episode, you’ll hear from two people who have managed to stay true to their message, provide real and useful content and get it to their community without resorting to gimmicks or sleazy sales tactics. 


    Dennis and Kelsey Heenan are Co-Founders of the fitness company HIITBURN and have worked with thousands of people across the world through their workout app and programs. Dennis specializes in email marketing, Facebook advertising, and copy writing for his businesses and as a consultant. Kelsey is a certified trainer and nutrition coach. Her personal brand, The Daily Kelsey focuses on helping people improve their relationship with food and their bodies. Along with being business partners, Dennis and Kelsey have also been married for over a decade.


    In today’s episode we cover: 


    How to cater your message to a specific audience

    Leveraging hardship into a tool for clarifying your purpose

    Copywriting and funnel building 101

    How even the most social media averse can scale their message

    Working with your spouse - how does that work?!

    E154 | Andrew Hauser: Healthy Detachment in Leadership

    We’re tired of endless Zoom meetings and powerpoint presentations so we’re opting instead for two days of INTERACTIVE discussion with leaders from a range of professions; leaders who are currently pressure testing what we’ve long assumed about leadership against the messy realities of our new normal… Click here to learn more!!

    Benefits of detachment and other dark sided traits in leadership 

    The need for "contextual inventory" & how to provide feedback in context 

    Andrew's best practices for “Day One” in a new organization

    On today’s episode you’ll learn how to catch a 4,000 lb great white shark. 


    But if that’s what you take from this episode, you missed the point. 


    On the surface (pun intended), today’s conversation might seem drastically different from ones we typically have on this show. But if you look deeper you’ll see the overwhelming number of similarities between the work of Chris Fischer, OCEARCH and what we do with communication, leadership and coaching. 


    A full-time explorer, Chris Fischer has a special gift of seeing the “big picture,” creating solutions around that picture, and communicating that picture in an accessible way to others. Chris has led 39 global expeditions focused on accelerating the ocean’s return to balance and abundance, by unlocking the life history puzzle of white sharks and other keystone species through expeditions aboard the OCEARCH. 


    His approach completely disrupts the research and policy process by making data collection and distribution collaborative, inclusive and open-sourced. This data-centric approach has inspired global ocean environmental protection policies, with Chris working alongside Presidents of several countries, including the U.S.


    We discuss: 


    How to productively disrupt a well established industry 

    Navigating learned helplessness in sharks and people

    Using storytelling to ethically sell your mission 

    Why communication is to coaching as oceans are to sharks 

    Connect with Chris:


    Via OCEARCH: ocearch.org 


    Via LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/explorerfischer/


    One thing while you’re still here… Chris and I talk extensively about the lack of effective communication in highly technical and science-driven fields. If you find yourself in one of these environments and want to practice better storytelling/communication so you can connect the people you serve to the work you do, let us help!

    E152 | Michael Tucker: How Storytelling and Self-Awareness Shape Who We Become

    E152 | Michael Tucker: How Storytelling and Self-Awareness Shape Who We Become

    When done well storytelling can access a primal level of human psychology. 


    With complex characters, varied settings, unique conflicts and resolution, storytelling is “manipulation for good” teaching us lessons, growth and a better way to live.


    Coaching is in many ways, storytelling. 


    Today on the show I’m joined by someone who studies storytelling professionally. Michael Tucker (filmmaker and writer), is the creator of the film analysis YouTube channel, Lessons from the Screenplay, host of the podcast Beyond the Screenplay, and creator of a new video series examining storytelling in video games called “Story Mode.” 


    Michael is incredibly skilled at making complex concepts immediately accessible. When analyzed at a deeper level, he shows us that quality storytelling is nothing more than truth; it helps us understand themes, relate to struggle and move to change. 


    On today’s show we discuss:


    The overlap between coaching and screenplay 

    Lessons from The Dark Knight, Inside Out, Arrival and Collateral 

    What to do when it’s raining on set - why creativity requires constraints 

    Discovering your inner demon or “ghost”

    Staying true to the craft while developing a brand

    E151 | How To Ask For Help

    E151 | How To Ask For Help

    Let's not bury the lede - I struggle asking for help.


    I've often wondered if it's possible to do in a way that doesn't compromise relationships or  reputation because (to the untrained eye) asking for help can seem to convey weakness, lack of fortitude, intelligence, and even organization.


    But none of us get through life without help in some form... So why do we have such an aversion to it?


    Today (in part IV of this series!) I’m diving into the 6 reasons why we struggle to ask for help, how to ask for it more effectively and why it's so hard to give good help!


    Speaking of help, we’d like to offer some. We’re hosting an FREE online workshop for individuals who want to get unstuck, figure out their competitive advantage and get off the  fence so they can make an impact. Click the link below to save your spot!

    E150 | Niching Down vs. Embracing Range

    E150 | Niching Down vs. Embracing Range

    Should we niche down or embrace range?


    If you read the newsletter this week, you know exactly where I stand on this topic. If you haven’t yet, click here to get the full story!


    Either way, it’s time to dive deeper into this debate.  


    Now - before you armor up with your facts and figures about why you’re Team Specialist or Team Generalist... hear me out. 


    “Niching down” mustn't apply to every aspect of your life. 


    You can be well-rounded, cultured, and dare I say “balanced” while still knowing exactly what you do, why you do it, and speaking directly to those who need it most. 


    Look, when it comes to providing value, speaking to everyone is speaking to no one.


    In part III of this series, I'm going to discuss the 4 steps to identifying your “niche” so that you can deliver value and stand out without selling out. I’ll also be going much deeper on this topic in a FREE interactive workshop soon. Click here to save your spot! 


    If you’re looking for a toolkit to help you tactically create change, do more of what you love and  get out of your own way, we’ve got something coming. Head to artofcoaching.com/blindspot to be the first in the know!

Great podcast for all people interested in coaching and high performance

Brett does a great job of keeping his podcast guests in a good flow of conversation and enjoy the different directions each episode takes.

Practical and For All Professionals

It’s nice to finally hear a podcast that covers the gray area of leadership as opposed to hearing the same sterilized views of what a “leader” should be. The solo episodes are refreshing, as are the mix of guests.

Truly something for all professions here!

thedailykelsey ,

A must listen!

Brett is awesome. He’s a wealth of knowledge and this podcast is an incredible resource. His interviewing is amazing because he is very intentional and always digs deep into the things that are actually important. I highly recommend it!
