Clear and Open helped me find my authentic self and share it with others. That allows me to be myself at work, with my friends, and around those I love. It dramatically improved the connection I have with others AND (without intentional effort) brought the right professional opportunities to me that both notice this way of being and value my “open” leadership style. It’s difficult to place a value on how much this impacted my life personally and professionally. In many ways I think I still don’t even know myself.
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.”
