Leading with Confident Vulnerability
“I would Put Mathias’ definition of a True Leader of Page 1 of the Army Manual”
- Gregory Stone, U.S. Army Commander, Ret.
What connects the great leaders of our planet?
What connects the great leaders of our planet? Across time, culture, and space?
Leaders like Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, JFK –
even modern day leaders like Oprah, Richard Branson, or Elon Musk?
How can we embody this sense of leadership for ourselves?
I worked for Yale University for four years, then asked myself: “what do I truly need to be a happy human?” and slept in a tent for a year on an island to find out the answer.
It was that year in 2012 that I received the principles of Leading with Confident Vulnerability.
In 2013, I tested these principles by crowdfunding my way from the Northwest of the United States to the Southwest to Arizona. Miracles happened. Then I just barely made it across the desert, ending up penniless on a beach near San Diego, California.
During this experience, I knew that I had when I truly needed every moment to make my visions and dreams a reality. Since then I’ve been invited to speak and share this message worldwide.
From having a dream, to a first billion-dollar client...
Recently over the span of 3 years I lived in Morocco, and used these principles help build and inspire an entrepreneurial ecosystem that is the fastest way for young entrepreneurs in Morocco and Africa to gain experience, then land their first clients with billion-dollar African corporations.
I believe that whoever you are, wherever you live, you have what you truly need in every moment to make your visions and dreams a reality.
I also believe that entrepreneurs hold the keys to the future to make this world a better, just, and more creative place to be.
A world where all the Global Goals are met, traditional employment has been rendered obsolete as we know it, and we are all able to build our boldest and brightest visions and dreams - together - on this planet, and beyond.
It is to this aim of building a regenerative enlightened and entrepreneurial society on this planet that I dedicate my life and existence.
