Why TeamSHEP exists
We realize you get energized from making progress toward the meaningful goals/dreams/desires you have. We get energized by guiding others to accomplish what they desired but weren’t sure they could.
TeamSHEP draws from the experiences of stepping into the abyss of the ‘not previously done by you’ world to guide others to new and sustainable levels of elevated performance.
How it Began
The foundation of TeamSHEP
The professional tackles the project that will make him stretch. He takes on the assignment that will bear him into uncharted waters, compel him to explore unconscious parts of himself. — Pressfield, Steven. The War of Art
In 1991 I fell in love with coaching. I fell in love with the creation of teams and bringing people together to accomplish something they did not think could be done. I loved the problem solving, the strategizing, the creating, the collaborating and the attempting of something new that leading teams required.
In 1998 I realized that it wasn’t coaching basketball that was my lifetime purpose, I loved it and still miss it dearly today. However, I realized that I was called to start something that could span and lead to changes across all teams, all sports, all organizations, and eventually all businesses I was called to be an entrepreneur and start a business that allowed me to build teams that changed the lives of those they interacted with.
I then encountered the great limitations I placed on myself. Fear, contentment with status quo, distraction, new opportunities, justifications. I chose to take on these limitations and not start what I knew was on my heart. I was choosing to play it safe, or so I thought. This playing it safe had short-term perks but by 2019 I could no longer ignore the desire for what had planted inside of to become manifested in the world. I could no longer ignore the pain of regret far outweighing the pleasure of not failing.
Those twenty years were not without benefit. I had some amazing experiences and growth. Most importantly I had a family and that is the greatest thing to happen to me.
But in 2019 I realized that it was time to stop giving into the resistance and start living a life unencumbered by the paralyzing and debilitating disease of not starting.
I launched TeamSHEP.
