Random fun facts about Darren: He is an electric bassist and closed down Profit Con 2018 by performing a solo bass guitar piece he composed titled Metamorphosis as a tribute to the journey of entrepreneurs. He holds a black belt in Kyokushin Karate, a 3rd degree brown belt in Aki-jujitsu and loves training in and teaching Martial arts. He enjoys daily cold showers, Wim Hof Breathing and regular cold water plunges. As a result, his wife and kids (and many on his team and others who find this out about him) think he is certifiably insane.
In today’s conversation, Darren shares the essence to creating great workplaces and engaging teams. By fostering an environment where each person can play to their strengths, team members are more motivated, confident and can tangibly point to the value they bring to the organization. In turn, the organization benefits from greater synergy, increased creativity, motivation and productivity. Darren provides valuable insights into how you can apply this approach to any business and team, small or large.
