Active CEO Performance Tip

Own The CHOICES You MakeThe world is constantly challenging us through disruption, competing priorities and competition for our attention; therefore we must take control of our own story and influence. Your have to own your own life and realize that life is not a dress rehearsal. How much of your life do you really own and take full responsibility for? You are the sum total of your decisions. You own the choices that you make.

Active CEO Performance Tip

CEO Preparedness – People make acquisitions because they like and trust the person or people they are speaking or planning to working with. Therefore the content and performance preparation, for a meeting or interaction, is an absolute must. Have you thought about how much time do you spend preparing for an interaction with a person or group of people, in regards to what you need to say to achieve the desired outcome, mood you want to set, focus needed and the way you need to use both verbal and non-verbal communication to achieve the result you are aiming for?

“How do I get across to these kids that they are actually cared about, we do take an interest in them and deeper than that, their life is worth something and worth something to us.” The why behind Paul Veric speaking to students about suicide and love, on the active CEO Podcast.

“I perhaps didn’t really get the scale of what I signed into until I arrived. Because I was naïve and didn’t really do my research into some of the things I was getting myself into.” Overcoming challenges in new CEO roles with Paul Veric, on the active CEO Podcast.

“I try hard as a parent I try to not rush in and solve my kid’s daily struggles with life and friends. Taking your hands actually off the steering wheel and letting them be kids and figure things out for themselves.” Paul Veric speaks about allowing children to build their own reslience, on the active CEO Podcast.
