Todd Palmer on Show #201 : Developing the Leader Within You 

Todd Palmer is a keynote speaker, retired CEO, and coach at Extraordinary Advisors. He knows that growth happens through leaning into the uncomfortable.

In 2006 as a struggling entrepreneur with a floundering business that was $600,000 in debt, he worked hard to guide his company out of trouble. He made the business one of America’s fastest-growing companies and made it into the INC 5000 a record total of six times.

As a Coach with Extraordinary Advisors, Todd works with organisations and business leaders to help them go through transformative changes to achieve high-level success. Todd is also the author of The Job Search Process: Find & Land a Great Job in 6 Weeks or Less and From Suck to Success: A Guide to Extraordinary Entrepreneurship.

In today’s episode, Todd shares his story of going from a corporate role to coaching CEOs and leaders. He shares how his business changed from working in a traditional office environment to working from home with clients worldwide.

He reveals the business model he uses to coach his clients and prioritise time between family and work.

He highlights some of the challenging effects COVID has had on his clients and how he specialises in helping business leaders get unstuck.

He explains why he decided to reach out to a coach when he struggled in his own business and what tools he uses to help manage his busy schedule.

Todd reveals the parallels he has noticed between the addiction mindset and a negative entrepreneurial mentality. He also shares how he continually challenges himself to learn something new.

“If you tried it and it didn’t work, and you learned something from it, it’s an absolute success.”
