Alexander Titus has biked 3,000+ miles from Alaska to Silicon Valley, worked as a recruiter at Box, picked up a PhD in Biomedical Data Sciences and is now Chief Strategy Officer at ARMI. Here's the crazy thing...that's not even the full list!
What’s so great about the guy I call The Mighty Titus (you'll hear why in the episode) is the humility and quiet determination he uses to create each step of his career and in his public-private leadership roles. In his episode you will hear new attitudes and approaches you can use: like rather than denying inevitable failure, thinking of it as, ‘not yet succeeded’.

In the age of Zoom and Google Meet, does age really matter? With so many meetings happening over video, we do not have use of the full three dimensions we are used to when creating, shaping and building in person relationships. Yet our need to connect with customers, colleagues and partners is even stronger. Because of this, a door has opened. Previous perceptions and biases formed by age, rank and title are blurred and back-seated to what can be gained, given, advanced and actioned through video--with everyone!
This episode reviews the great gift of having five generations in the workplace today and provides a 3-step approach you can use this week to maximize your learning and goal achievement with and from others, regardless of age!

You can't really lie to 5th graders. They see right through it. In fact, they see right into your truth, your intention and more. So when asked to describe the art and science of sales to a group of 5th graders I was super nervous and really challenged. The 4-letter acronym, "Like, Listen, Learn & Persuade (LLL&P)" seemed to work. The kids loved it and so have many professionals--both career salespeople and those who rely on persuasion and audience building for their success.

With humility and gratitude for each peak and valley, listen and grab some insights and practices you can apply to your own circumstance, RIGHT NOW.
