Friends fans cohorts and clients, ain’t life grand? Here’s the latest on yours truly including upcoming speaking events, and some cool developments in the world of inspired, accountable, fun professional development!
Highlights of 2014 so far would be my extreme pride in winning the Training125, taking second-place in the world amongst all industries with my Keller Williams University training team. Another highlight is having authored hometown articles in the award-winning Edible Austin magazine and seeing those get nominated for awards. Another highlight of 2014 is teaching a week at Amelia Island Plantation Resort in Florida addressing the masterminds of Keller Williams’ top agents for the year. A third highlight is booking several more workshops for the hard-working men and women of Veteran Healthcare. And a fourth highlight is watching my family continue to blossom which is truly the most important part of my life.Â The two topics being requested of me the most in 2014 are Plays Well With Others (my book) and The ONE Thing (by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan, coaching materials by Les McGehee and Shon Kokoszka).
Training/speaking highlights from 2013:Â Amongst other great clients, I spoke to groups of real estate professionals, international trainers, the famous BOLD Coaches, City Hall staff in Austin, and of course I also did workshops for the Veterans Hospital nurses and Leadership Development Institute where the good people work. I also did training events for my new favorite consultancy and training company, Keller Williams University/MAPSÂ Coaching where I was fortunate enough to address their elite training leaders in Austin, Las Vegas, and Dallas, and create their original coaching materials to accompany the Wall Street Journal and Amazon #1 Bestselling Business book, The ONE Thing. Then I gave a keynote address to a few universities including St. Edwards University in Austin TX and met some fine young people, what a great school.Â Comedy highlights of 2013 include the highly successful run of Pie and Ear at Vortex Theater in Austin, TX, also I won the comedy contest/show Thinning the Herd at The Institution Theater in Austin, AND I enjoyed emceeing a show in Dallas for an audience of 10K as I opened for The Doobie Brothers. Update: the animated movie Iâ€™m in that is being slowly and lovingly finished called Boxer Story by Lance Fever. Google it and love on it. Lanceâ€™s credits include Space Jam, A Scanner Darkly, and many other outstanding animations. I got to play the boxer and it was a joy doing the voice-over work.
Let me know if itâ€™s time for me to come speak to or train your group. My seminars have never been stronger, letâ€™s conquer the world.
Measured results, immeasurable impact.
I hope life is grand for all of you too. Iâ€™ve got your back, Les
