Take Your Shoes Off First is a fast and entertaining parable that illustrates how easy it is to limit what is possible in your life - without knowing you are doing it. This book tells a thought-provoking story about an executive who finds a better path forward through a challenging situation by embracing one simple idea so he can see himself and the world more clearly.

After reading this book, you will understand:

  • how powerful, stealthy, and costly beliefs can be
  • how easy it is to be fooled into thinking that a situation is black and white when really it is filled with a rainbow of possibilities
  • what you can do to change everything in your life for the better.

As the world faces unprecedented challenges and becomes increasingly more connected, there has never been a more important time for people to open their minds to new possibilities and learn to embrace change and bridge the divides created by radically different experiences.

Taking Your Shoes Off First will help with just that. This book is a blueprint for all humans who want to feel better prepared for the world we live in. It delivers a set of principles that can accelerate breakthroughs and transform all interactions for the better.

Be entertained while learning how to quickly improve your life and relationships! An hour today will lead to a lifetime of better outcomes both personally and professionally.

" I couldn't put it down! In the time of Covid-19, as we are all experiencing change in the way we work, our family lives, and relationships in general, we need to be able to "take our shoes off" to evolve, change, and grow. This book resonates on many levels and is so relevant for the world and times we live in today."

- Stacey Thornton, Director of Business Applications, Seattle Children's Hospital

"I wish I had read this book many years ago. There are several critical times in my life I would have handled differently if I had. I will be thinking of the lessons in here often going forward both as a partner and a leader. I agree, the world would be a better place if more people worked to 'take their shoes off first.'"

- Greg Amrofell, Chief Marketing Officer, IHME

"Reading this book made me feel like something cracked open. It inspired me to think more holistically and calmly about what is going right, where I'm stuck, what I want to do differently, and what I'm frustrated with. I was highlighting like crazy! It's engaging without being too cute, wise without being preachy, and motivational without being annoying. I want to use this on all our client engagements as a means for setting the stage for change work."

- Jill Sherensky, CEO, Denny Mountain Media
