THE Activated Genius METHOD PILLARS
The Activated GEnius METHOD
is the best leadership, personal development,and human performance research,
Distilled down to its essence,
And validated through my years of experience with
experiment design, program management, technology development, leadership, coaching, and bureaucratic reinvention.

Your Genius Consists of
Values are a deeply personal expression of who we are and what we hold most dear. They are a key contributor to our worldview. They are the principles we fight for most ardently - even if we don't realize it - even when it causes us pain.
Motivation is a near-limitless energy source that sits at the core of every individual, attached to our deep and instinctual desire to keep moving in the direction of our definition of wellbeing.
Strengths are areas of individual talent. They are the traits or actions that we find natural, obvious, and especially energizing and admirable. They are not merely the things we do better than others - especially if those things drain you. Strengths are skill+energy. Performance+passion.
Your Inclination is the subject or activity that sparks within you a profound curiosity. It is the thing that you are excited to learn. To practice. To master. The topic that you keep coming back to - consciously or subconsciously - as you progress through your career and your life.
