🔻 Choose self-interest over team success

🔻 Act small to avoid too much attention in fear of resentment or retaliation
🔻 Withhold valuable critical feedback to avoid confrontation

And this is what they have to say about the work
Thomas was able to connect with our team in a manner that created tremendous trust and safety, which led to big breakthroughs at the individual and team levels. We are believers in his methodology and approach, and the value we received is 10x the investment. I couldn't recommend Thomas more highly. If you are an entrepreneur or leader and want to create greater enterprise value by helping yourself and your people, this is the way to go.

We're an enthusiastic customer of Your Second Call. We offer Thomas's coaching services as an employee benefit to help team members navigate the fear and anxiety of embracing new leadership opportunities. He has helped me and multiple Venteur team members grow in our audacity and day-to-day effectiveness.
Stacy Edgar CEO, Venteur.com
After a lifetime of shipping new things, sometimes I think there's nothing I can't figure out. But even I get stuck. Stuck in my own head. Times when I'm dancing with fear but fear is winning. Two sessions was all it took for Thomas to help me rewire what was tripping me up. We went deep and fast. YC is the accelerator for your startup execution. TK is the accelerator for your 🧠 execution. He's been in every founders' shoes. Now he can help you walk better in yours. Get time with him.
Casey Allen Founder, Enterprise Rising

Abyan Nur Founder, FacelessPro.com
Thomas leads with empathy and vulnerability and guides executives to do so. He brings a true sense of partnership to those he helps in their development phase. He brings a great sense of value and approachability that doesn’t come easy to a lot of professionals.
Dani DeLorme VP People Ops, Revelry.co

What is the cost?
Do you know what happens when people are anxious? Burnt out? Defensive? Second-guessed? Tired? Afraid? Parts of their brain shut down. They can't act – they react. Even if they tell their brains, "This is how things are! We just need to push through!" their bodies go into fight or flight. And, in that state, their best strategy is to react to survive.
But it doesn't have to stay this way.
An unburdened team is a swift and light team. When people feel unburdened, they feel creative. They feel courageous. They feel calm. They feel connected. They feel curious. They feel clarity. They feel confident.
In this state, people shift from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. They shift from defensive to productive. They shift from scarcity to abundance. Imagine your team bringing this mindset into every meeting. Every task. Every conversation. Every decision. Imagine what you can accomplish together with a team like that.
Now, if you are stuck in scarcity, you are probably thinking, "I can't afford to provide this benefit to my leaders right now" even though you haven't even heard the price yet.
Which means you should be thinking, “What is it going to cost me if I don't even ask?”
What is Self Healing Leadership?
Self Healing Leadership is a practice designed to (1) help leaders recognize the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that create resistance in their decisions, conversations, and actions; (2) heal what holds them back or what they are holding back; and (3) reveal their truest Self.
What does this have to do with my business?
Businesses are complex systems of people.
People are complex systems of thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and experiences.
The most efficient and high-growth businesses are resilient, responsive, and low-resistance.
The most effective and high-growth people are resilient, responsive, and low-resistance.
Resistance is like friction, drag, and tension. Think fight, flight, fawn, and freeze.
Sometimes these are reactions to something internal other times they are reactions to something external. Either way, the resistance will create friction, drag down responsiveness, and impact the resilience of the entire system.
Without intentional healing and transformation, any system will require more and more energy to overcome the resistance. Without intentional healing and transformation, entropy will win, and the system will break down.
However, when people practice Self Healing Leadership, they show up with more curiosity, courage, creativity, calm, confidence, and collaboration. And this transforms the whole system into a lower-resistance, more responsive, resilient organization.

You Deserve This
The highest-performing athletes in the world — the ones who are dead set on winning championships — are the ones who are most likely to surround themselves with specialized coaches. They don’t ask those coaches for advice about how to play the game. They pay them to uncover specific weaknesses, unwind the damage, transform their performance, and unlock their absolute best.
In business, when you can approach every conversation, every interaction, and every decision from a state of confidence, creativity, and calm the impact is exponential!
Every best step builds on the next and earns interest over time. And every time you demonstrate excellence it shapes the culture and inspires the entire team to level up as well. That impacts every action, every hire, and ultimately the speed and trajectory of your entire company.
You can feel whether your team is fully aligned on the vision and reaching your goals. You can feel whether your business is prepared for the next phase of growth. And most importantly, you can feel whether you have unlocked your absolute best.
You don’t need more opinions about what you should or shouldn’t do. You need to unlock your absolute best. Starting yesterday. And the 1:1 deep work sessions that are the core of my practice will do this for you. I guarantee that if you show up and do the work, you will see the impact within a month.
Or, just wait another month, and you will still be asking questions like,
- “Why can’t we move faster?”
- “What if someone finds out I’ve never done this before?”
- “Why does that person think they can ignore what I told them to do?”
- “Don’t you know who I am and what I did at my last company?!”
- “Why do I always get stuck at this part?”
- “Why doesn’t that person trust me?”
- “Why did they cancel?”
- “Why didn’t they convert?”
- “Oh yeah, I’ll %&#$@ show you!”
- “What if we run out of money?”
- “Am I the only person this happens to?”
Look. You don’t have to work with me. But you deserve to have someone like me in your corner. So, either book your free discovery call with me, or make an appointment with yourself to find your coach.
When life hits a wall, or you receive some great news, your first call will obviously be to your family, friend, or partner. We just want to earn the right to be your second call.
