On January 1st of 2014, I announced to the LIFE Leadership community that Chris Brady would enter a new seat on the bus as the LIFE Leadership CEO. I believe this was an essential move for LIFE Leadership to reach one million people.
Why? First, because Chris Brady is the most creative, process-oriented person that I know. Second, I have a 20 plus year working relationship with him and know how his character from experience, not just a resume'. Third, I believed that Chris's passion for building a world-class leadership company would take every process LIFE Leadership uses and hit it with the simple stick, helping us reach our goals much quicker.
The thoughts I had about this move have been more than confirmed in Chris's first three months! In fact, I believe it is one of the few times where I underestimated the impact of a change. LIFE Leadership is on its way to touching millions of people's lives through providing members, customers, and corporations world-class leadership materials. My focus will be on leading the field (with Tim Marks, Claude Hamilton, Bill Lewis, and Dan Hawkins, and others helping me) and Chris's (and Rob Hallstrand) will be on leading the processes and products that the field uses. This is division-of-labor at its best!
With the release of the Next-Step and CAB program, LIFE is experiencing its best growth ever. Where do you see LIFE Leadership going now that the Orrin Woodward/Chris Brady collaboration has been taken to the next level?
