Brad Szollose is very near and dear to not only me and my heart, but to the collective on the global scale within the space of business, leadership, personal growth and personal development. As a highly successful entrepreneur since 1987, this spitfire has pretty much done and seen it all as it relates to making a profound impact on peoples lives, and businesses. In Brad’s choosing to consistently raise the bar in his own daily life, he equally generates the same level of contribution, effort, and integrity to all else who have the distinct honour and privilege of knowing him. A true win win scenario across the board for anyone whose objective it is to scale, leverage, learn, grow and expand beyond their own foreseeable expectations.
Brad is a globally recognized Leadership Development and Management Consultant who helps organizations dominate their industry by tapping into the treasure of a cross-generational workforce. How does an award-winning creative director become a globally recognized Leadership Development Consultant?
As one of the very first web pioneers, Brad grew his digital agency, K2 Design, 425% for 5 straight years – beginning – as a business idea in a coffee shop with absolutely no startup capital to a publicly traded company worth $26 million in just 24 short months with an IPO on NASDAQ.
Brad was catapulted from entrepreneur to C-Suite Executive, and began developing a unique management model for the first wave of Generation X and Y – raised on video games, computers, and The Internet. Word got around and K2 was awarded the Arthur Andersen NY Enterprise Award for Best Practices in Fostering Innovation Amongst Employees.
Since the year 2010, and the release of his award-winning bestseller, Liquid Leadership, Brad has created customized cross-generational training programs for the American Management Association, Tony Robbins Research and Liquidnet Holdings, as well as dozens of Fortune 500 companies on the subject of cross-generational management, innovation & creativity.
Brad’s dynamic, high content presentations and workshops give audiences plenty to laugh about, but more importantly, reveal the behavioural changes that are changing the way we manage, and the way we buy in a new digital age economy. You can listen to the entire interview here:
These are the professional highlights and accolades associated with one of the most prolific and brilliant minds I have ever had the immense pleasure to interview on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald, however, it is Brad’s heart and level of emotional intelligence which most strikes a chord in me. Everything I do in the work space is consciously and deliberately driven and executed upon, and as people who know me know, I do not believe in coincidences. I have a plethora of former radio guests I could have extracted from my archives in which to feature on Thrive Global this week – specifically on Valentine’s Day, no less. For what Brad’s presence in my life has beautifully, and magically evolved into – Brad is the only person who receives Valentine’s Day acknowledgement and recognition from me on this universally celebrated day of love. No coincidence – only wholehearted and synergistic, soulful, alignment!
I love you with all my heart, Gibran! Happy Valentine’s Day from now until forever! Thank you for all you continue to bring to the lives of others. Thank you for always paying-it-forward and for being of unending service to others. Thank you for your ongoing contributions to all of humanity. Thank you from the centre of my heart, for being one of my greatest universal gifts and blessings in this beautiful tapestry I am afforded the privilege to call my life. Thank you for being exactly as you are. I see you. I hear you. I feel you. I believe in you. I will treasure you in this lifetime and in the next! Keep Shining!
Uplifting You To Fear Less And To Live More!
Be your own Hero. Be your own Shero.
Be your own Leader. Be your own Best Friend!
Love & Gratitude ~ Lisa
