Our guest on the podcast this week is Dr. Al Spicer, founder & CEO of Extraordinary Life, Inc, he specializes in supporting senior-level executives to sharpen their leadership edge and harness their potential. As a trusted confidant and advisor for executives in small to mid-sized organizations, and family businesses, he helps them lead in a VUCA world. This includes helping them solve people's problems, hone strategic thinking amidst increasing complexity, dodging blindspots, and defusing burnout. In short - hone their agility at the turbulent intersection between their life, leadership, & legacy, and enjoy their Extraordinary Life."

Today, Al shares his unique perspective on what it takes to lead an extraordinary life, and how he is helping business leaders redefine their definition of success. Al’s life journey, although it began with significant trauma, it deeply inspired his love of psychology and a continuing fascination with understanding ourselves in deeper ways.

We talked about what it means to choose to live our lives by design, to find joy beyond the ordinary, and how our breakdowns can become our breakthroughs. This was a soul-deep conversation that gave me so many insights, from spiritual truth to how the choices we make or don’t make shape our lives. If you’re interested in understanding yourself or your life better, I think you’ll enjoy listening to Al’s wisdom!
