The biggest challenge that a founder or early stage company CEO faces is oddly not survival of his company but how his role needs to change as his company grows and matures. Many leadership transitions (founders being fired) occur when the company’s needs grow faster or in different direction than the CEO’s capabilities. In fact studies have shown that the more quickly a company becomes successful, the more likely it is that its founder gets replaced.  Fast scaling organizations require a chameleon like leader who can acquire new skills as his environment changes.  Those that don’t are replaced. It takes a deep level of self-awareness for a CEO to realize this is occurring and a level of maturity not found in many to do something about it.  Knowing when to continue to climb the leadership value ladder and when to gracefully dismount is the key to avoiding an uncomfortable, abrupt and often destructive CEO transition.

Chris Schafer & Brent Carter, Authors, Intrepid Professionals: How Principles from the Military Mindset Build Extraordinary Leaders, Teams, and Businesses

In a world where adaptation to chaos is a consistent requirement, leaders need an intrepid mindset - a mode of seeing, thinking, and acting that is hyper-vigilant. There are few challenging areas that need intrepid mindsets more than conflict management.  The greatest business leaders we have observed leverage three principles that drive success in conflict management: intention, intelligence gathering, and creating a space for collaboration. This doesn’t necessarily mean jumping into an argument and throat punching a bully—okay, sometimes that is required, but not always. Instead, it means to engage in the reality of the conflict, to examine why the conflict exists, and to search out any overlooked context that could help resolve the conflict.

“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy, but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.” - Plato.

Music permeates my earliest memories and has always been the unique lense through which I view the world. From the age of four I began my academic music study, and at 20 I travelled to Austria to embark on my professional musical career. I dedicated years of study to the double bass, violone, and Orchestral Direction, played and collaborated with renowned European orchestras, and composed De Otros Paisajes Sonoros, which premiered at the Plaza Mayor de Madrid.
