Welcome to the Thriving Not Surviving radio show with Gina Gardiner. My guest today is Greg Yates, and our topic is "Vulnerability is not a weakness, search for external validation is an addiction. We're better together."
After more than 30 years in business, owning as many as 14 businesses at one time with hundreds of employees, Greg found himself in denial, without trusted advisers in 2008 when the real estate market crashed. He made decisions that ultimately cost him tens of millions in capital and a year in prison. Going from massive success to the brokenness of failure, Greg came face to face with the false beliefs that had blocked his decision-making process and left him isolated as a leader. Then he made an even more shocking discovery. He wasn't the only leader living in isolation. Greg is the author of four books and his 5th book, entitled 'Circumstances Lie', will be released soon. His first book, an international Best Seller is titled, 'Broken, how being broken unlocked the greatest success of my life'. Greg is a speaker, author, trainer and coach but his ultimate mission is helping leaders develop and consistently share their definition of success through the Leadership Mastermind he calls, 'My Practice Zone'; and through his latest initiative; 'The Effortless Author. Helping leaders eliminate head-trash and get buy-in with their people is Greg's personal definition of success.
