Everyone should know that leadership is the “secret sauce” to growth and scale.  You can’t do everything yourself.

However, it’s all too common to see advisors get stuck “in the weeds” with all of the information out in the marketplace today.

In this episode, Jon Kuttin speaks with Dr. Ray Kelly of think2perform.  Together, they discuss the current “leadership crisis” that is taking place and why yesterday’s solutions may not necessary be the solution to tomorrow’s problems. They also share basic and actionable strategies to start to take the first steps to make scaling your business a reality.

Ray Kelly discusses:

  • Breaking down leadership intelligence into 3 unique facets – IQ, TQ and EQ
  • The concept of Brain, Back or Pocketbook and why most people have been conditioned by society to put everything on themselves.
  • The no entitlement mentality and why it’s ALWAYS on the leader.
  • And more!
