“My book is about how I learned to be a leader and how I built my company. I wrote it because when I started I would spend every Friday night in the bookstore, reading about CEOs and successful organizations, so that I could learn from them. And I found wonderful stories and amazing stories of success, but I always left wondering how they did it.”

Faster Than Normal  is about understanding that a trait that many of us are born with, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, is not the curse or the disability that we’ve been told it is all of our lives, that if managed properly, allows us to be faster than normal, to have quicker a brain, to come up with answers faster than other people, to create, to explore, to learn faster and differently, to get more hours in our day back, to get more of our life back. It is a gift, not a curse.”

“In my work as an organizational psychologist, in almost 15 years, I noticed that to a person, people who I was coaching and working with were most successful, knew who they were, how they were seen and how they fit into the world around them. But over and over I saw a shortage of self-awareness, not just in the companies I worked in, but nearly everywhere I looked. And I think a lot of people would agree.”

“I’d like to tell you about Mindshift and the story behind it. I wrote the book because I was really lucky, I had a second chance at life. But you can have a second chance too. Here’s what I mean. I grew up to be incapable in math and science, as in I flunked my way through elementary, middle and high school math and science. And yet, as an adult I learned how to change my brain from being a math-phobe to –it’s hard for me to even believe it — a professor of engineering.”
