454: Create Your Vivid Vision with Cameron Herold

Achieve Your Goals with Hal Elrod

How much more effective could you be at creating everything you want for your life if you had a detailed (aka “vivid”) vision of where you’re going? Without a clear vision, it’s easy for us to get pulled in different directions and end up arriving somewhere less than ideal. That’s why I’m excited to talk to my friend, Cameron Herold. Cameron is the co-author of The Miracle Morning for Entrepreneurs, founder of the COO Alliance and author of Vivid Vision: A Remarkable Tool For Aligning Your Business Around a Shared Vision of the Future. Cameron's the guy to talk to if you want to gain exceptional clarity in your life (or business) to make your goals a reality. In our conversation, you’ll learn Cameron’s strategy for creating a Vivid Vision for your life, why setting bigger goals motivates you to achieve them, and the habits that make top performers successful. You’ll also hear Cameron talk about his experience living with monks, what he learned from working with Elon Musk’s brother, Kimbal, and how to put yourself in a peak emotional, physical, and spiritual state so you can improve your life and the lives of those around you. KEY TAKEAWAYS What living in a monastery taught Cameron about being present and living a spiritually rich life. Stop waiting for motivation to arrive! Learn how bigger goals can fuel you to achieve what you thought was impossible. Why you should enjoy the process instead of always worrying about the outcomes. The greatest obstacles that prevent people from achieving their goals. The importance of surrounding yourself with smart people that will hold you accountable and push you forward. Top performers know when it’s time to take action to achieve their goals. Others search for the magic bullet. The importance of anticipating setbacks and only focusing on things you can control. Perfection is the enemy of progress. Be kind to yourself when you slip up, and do better tomorrow.

Cults at Work: Cameron Herold on Corporate Culture

A Little Bit Culty

How and when does a healthy corporate culture go off the rails? What are some red flags to be aware of when you’re sizing up a potential workplace? Before you spring for that lower back tattoo of your company’s logo, be sure to take a listen to this A Little Bit Culty episode featuring Cameron Herold. As a successful entrepreneur and in-demand CEO Whisperer, he’s coached dozens of companies globally and is known for creating world-class company cultures. Once upon a time, he also used this talking point on the regular as part of his top-rated keynote speaking gigs: "To build an amazing company, it has to be a little bit more than a business, and a little bit less than a religion, it has to be in the zone of a cult." Cameron joins Sarah and Nippy to talk about why he no longer stans that culty line of thinking, and how corporate culture routinely blurs the lines between community and coercion. About Our Guest:Cameron Herold is the founder of the COO Alliance, author of 5 business books including Vivid Vision, and founder of the Invest In Your Leaders course. He's been paid to speak on all 7 continents including Antarctica…and is the former COO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? which was ranked the #2 company to work for in all of Canada, and became a case study at  Harvard Business School, and landed him on Oprah.
