Talent isn't born.
I founded Talent Boost to help businesses have better journeys. Tell more compelling stories. Attract the right people. Make a bigger impact. And stuff themselves full of leaders people actually want to follow.
I spent many years in corporate America, trying to get my unique personality and perspective to fit within a tightly formed, tightly lidded corporate box.
Then one day, my boss stopped me in the hall. He said, "You need to tone down your walk."
"Um... what?" was my eloquent reply.
"Your walk. It's too... bouncy. You seem too happy. It makes people wonder if you're up to something."
That exchange was so emblematic of everything that's wrong with most corporate cultures. So I decided that instead of continuing to disrupt the corporate machine from within, I would disrupt it from the outside.
I formed Talent Boost because I truly believe everyone has it within them to be AMAZING. Individuals, businesses, even corporate cultures. They simply need to get out of their own way, discover what makes them uniquely talented, and then BOOST that talent.
You have it within you too. As a leader, as a business... you are on the verge of being AMAZING.
All you need is a little boost.
My Journey So Far
CRUSHED CANCER, DITCHED CORPORATE
VP of HR, on an executive track, traveling 3 weeks out of every 4. Got diagnosed with cancer. Went from 150 mph to 0 as I dealt with my surgery, treatment, recovery. Finally couldn't outrun the voice in my head that had been asking, "Are you doing what you're passionate about?" Decided the answer was no. Got healthy, gave notice, and jumped into the entrepreneurial unknown.
FORMED TALENT BOOST
Found my niche. Built a company around the idea that every leader and every business has talent lurking within it. Became my mission to find it, define it, bring it to the surface and use it to drive greater results, more meaningful experiences, and amazing business growth stories.
