What Are GAMES FOR PROS?
Games for Pros are small, daily, action assignments that will help you train yourself to move toward professional challenges that you might typically avoid. Research from the prestigious Gallup Organization identifies the "need to grow" as a key driver of employee engagement. Ignoring and avoiding our potential is a silent killer of enjoyable work.
Games for Pros will help you to build the capacity to respond at your best, even in circumstances where you feel stressed, incapable or hesitant to engage.
Why We get Stuck in Our Lives
From our earliest childhood we prioritize any learning that helps us to avoid failure. That avoidance orientation removes us from the playing field of life.
While removing ourselves this way feels like safety in the moment, it actually contributes to our anxiety, because we're undermining confidence in ourselves at the same time.
That leads to further withdrawal from our lives in a downward spiral of disengagement. We stop learning, we stop growing, we stop trying and we stop enjoying our work.
We All Have Two Lives
On one hand, there is the life we have right now, the reality of our current professional circumstances. That’s a given.
But there’s also the success we imagine achieving a week, a month or a year from now.
The success we’re imagining living after today represents a dream we have for a new or better future. A future where we’ve reinvented ourselves, responded to a higher calling, or improved the quality of our life or the lives of others.
What I’ve come to understand on my journey is that no matter what kind of transformation, reinvention or success you’re looking for...
But Here's the Problem
The level of confidence we need to make our highest and most fulfilling contribution professionally is like the level of fitness we need to run a marathon.
We don't get in shape for that kind of participation overnight.
It takes time.
Games for Pros is a training program that will wake up, tone and strengthen the growth muscles we all need to do our best work, rise to our highest potential and experience maximum happiness on the job.
Just like you might go to the gym everyday to train for an athletic performance, you also must train a little everyday to build the self-confidence you will need for peak professional performance.

Working with you has been the best training I have ever had the privilege to be involved with. There's that old saying about bathing and eating, like motivation, not lasting very long.
