Men On Purpose Podcast

Nov 25, 2019

Are the little things keeping you from showing up as a leader? Does it ruin your day when someone cuts you off in traffic? Or do you get caught up in frustration when a client pushes your buttons? Adam Hergenrother contends that if you can learn to breathe into the emotion and give it the space to travel through you, then you set yourself up to lead from a place of contribution—in every aspect of your life.

Adam is the CEO of a billion-dollar organization that includes Keller Williams Vermont, the Hergenrother Realty Group, BlackRock Construction, Adam Hergenrother Training and the Adam Hergenrother Foundation. Adam credits his success to a bold vision coupled with a commitment to never giving up. His fearless, purposeful, unconventional and systematic approach helps Adam inspire others to reach their personal development goals and grow into the leaders they were always meant to be.

On this episode, Adam joins Emerald to share the AHA moment that inspired his inner journey, explaining how it informed his calling to make everyone in his organization wealthy—in the broadest sense of the word. He discusses how business serves as a conduit for our personal growth and challenges us to serve the moment in front of us and set intentions from a place of clarity. Adam also weighs in on why he prioritizes personal development to achieve his peak state as a creative leader. Listen in for insight around the connection between joy and acceptance and learn how to breathe through your emotions rather than getting caught up in them.
