HIGH-ACHIEVERS ALWAYS WANT TWO THINGS.
First, they want to keep getting results — more and better and faster.
And second, they want their achievements to mean something.
As a high-performer, you understand that in order to reach your goals, you have to work hard. That work helps you reach greater levels of success than those around you. But there comes a point, when you’re nearing the apex, in which every small gain seems to require exponentially more effort.
Every change requires more courage than the one before.
Every shift means you have to reach deeper within yourself.
THIS is the place where you’ll find yourself feeling frustrated, stagnant, or even worse, resigned to “good enough.” THIS is the place where you’re probably feeling ready to toss it in and rest on your already impressive achievements.
And THIS is the place where you can discover deep fulfillment and purposeful achievement—if you’re willing to undo a lot of what you’ve been conditioned to believe throughout your life.
There’s a secret that nobody tells you:
Your success has very little to do with what you are doing.
Rather, success comes from who you are being.
When you begin to understand this, you begin to see there are no true limits to what you can achieve. You can change the world. Sounds corny, but it’s true.
When your BEING and your DOING are aligned, you ARE infinite potential.
HOW DO YOU GET TO YOUR INFINITY?
We already know you have achieved things that others only dream about. But there is a shadow side to each of your strengths, and this can slow you down or even block you from achieving the next level of success that you’re looking for.
What I’ve learned over the last 17 years coaching high-performing leaders and entrepreneurs is this:
What you THINK is the problem is rarely ever the real problem.
And until you fix the underlying, upstream issues, you will remain frustrated.
My gift is the ability to see beyond the surface to where your power lies—where you resist, and so create the problems you struggle with. I can show you where your unconscious beliefs and behaviors are getting in your way. More importantly, I can show you how to break through.

Since joining the online group courses of Clear and Open, I have learned to lean into productive discomfort, recognize unconscious defenses and motivations, and develop critical thinking skills. Committing to a daily meditation practice has also made a huge difference in my life. Josef’s style of teaching and coaching invites us to engage, take action and grow…not only on a professional level, but also on personal and spiritual levels as well.
Every once in a while I cross paths with someone who changes the quality of my life for the better. Josef has proven to be one of those people.
Josef has made a significant contribution to my life. During my time with him he’s illuminated areas of myself that I wasn’t aware existed, helping me recognize issues that were holding me back and helping me discover ways to improve them. I’ll hold the lessons that he taught me for the rest of my life. I can’t recommend him enough.
“Josef is the best coach I have ever worked with. He is tough, insightful and will hold you accountable. If you’re ready for the truth, if you’re truly ready for the next level, I promise he will help take you there. In less than 9 months I achieved results with Josef that were way beyond what I could have imagined. His tools and insights are invaluable part of my business and personal life. The bottom line: As a serial entrepreneur with 4 major business operations and a busy personal life, I need results and do not have time to mess around. I have worked with many coaches and consultants over the years, but none of them have come even close to producing the kinds of results Josef and I created.”
Clear and Open revealed to me my gifts. I had only a vague sense of the kind of leader I already was, buried under a pile of chronic overwhelm. I’m now well on my to becoming a bigger version of myself that I always thought was possible, but couldn’t quite see the path to get there. I see now that getting extremely well-organized is a key stepping stone to more advanced forms of management that I’m now able to learn and practice, and the business results are already starting to show up. I can’t wait to see where this leads me. This has truly been a game-changer and was exactly what I was looking for. Fantastic.”
Josef pushes my edge in a way that challenges me to be better. If I have blind spots or thinking that doesn’t serve me, I know Josef will help me see it. He gives me something I instinctively know I need to be my best.
When I contacted Josef, I knew that the CEO I was to get my company to our first million dollar year was not the CEO I had to be to get us to 5 and 10 million dollars. I had to be different, I had to learn new skills, I had to manage my people differently and I had to manage our resources differently. His insight was tremendous. The real proof is in the profits and the comments from my employees. ‘You are the best CEO we’ve ever seen you be and the best CEO I’ve ever worked for.’ Comments like those abound since working with Josef.”
“Josef helped us to realize that we were in the wrong positions in our company and with his help we restructured our company and rebuilt something stronger. We are now more accountable, we take issues head-on and do not let them fester. We are more organized and are creating systems to streamline our company. Josef helped us to start a budget for the first time, developed a clear organizational chart, detailed position agreements, and goals for our company. We realized that we were the ones responsible for burning out our employees and creating the high turnover. It’s been a lot of work and I know there is a lot more work to do, but I would not go back for anything. Working with Josef has saved our company, made it stronger, and lifted a huge weight off of our shoulders.”
“I am a stronger, more consistent leader as a result of my participation in Clear and Open. Josef brings rigorous inquiry into all aspects of being. Working with Josef is beyond coaching. It’s like having a really great personal trainer but for business, with an insistence on excellence at every turn. As with any great workout, it hurts, but I am so much more ready to meet the unexpected challenges.”
