Scott and Mark have a free-flowing discussion touching on a wide range of topics, from leadership principles and parenting philosophies to self-care and finding meaning. With many years of leadership experience building their businesses and raising kids, they share stories and insight. A key theme is how adopting different mindsets or “alter egos” helps us connect with others and perform our roles, whether as a parent, spouse, boss or employee. Just as Superman puts on a costume, we portray different sides of ourselves.

TOPICS

  • The importance of adopting “alter egos” or different mindsets for different roles in your life. This helps with performance and connecting with others.
  • Having clear policies and principles in business and parenting to make tough decisions easier. This provides consistency and prepares people for the real world.
  • Being a leader involves making difficult decisions for the greater good, not just protecting your team. True leadership requires honesty and a willingness to take responsibility.
  • The best leaders are often reluctant ones who take on the responsibility as needed, not those seeking glory and spotlight.
  • To avoid burnout and “midlife crises”, you need to find balance, purpose and self-awareness. Carve out time for your interests and self-reflection.
  • Writing things down, like keeping a journal, can help provide direction when things get difficult and remind you of what really matters.
  • Parenting is ultimately about preparing kids for the world, not overprotecting them. Kids need structure, consistency and honesty to develop into functional adults.
