If you think your life is on the line to keep your business running, as a former Chinese Mafia Boss, Sabastian Huynh knew exactly what was at stake if he neglected to bring results to his “family business”. Talk about business competition; his competition was literally out to kill him!

After several near death experiences, he was finally saved through imprisonment. It was in prison, away from the chaos that he found what he was passionate about—developing leaders, leaders that give life rather than take it.

It was this passion that gave him another chance at life—after a reduced sentence he went back to school and completed his GED (good enough degree), AA Biblical Studies, BA in Human Development and MBA in International Development.

He soon found himself at another battlefield, fighting human trafficking, gang violence and social injustice in several Asian countries and in the United States. In this battle he didn’t have his body guards, knives or guns as weapons anymore; rather he relied on the power of conversation—of Fierce Conversations because he knew that this type of violence needed tangible results, not just words or “soft” skills.

As one who saw time and moments as truly limited, he only aligned himself to tools that made real impact—that transformed lives not just to entertain.

When he became an Identity Evangelist, he took with him the ferocity and urgency from his Mafia experience, the passion and patience from his imprisonment and his knowledge and perseverance from his degrees and used them to ultimately transform leaders and their entire organization.

During this interview Sabastian shares transformational leadership lessons on how to get beyond the fear of rejection and your comfort zone so you can truly be a leader who gets results and transforms the world around you.
