Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”:
In this episode of IAMCEO podcast, Adam Markel, shares his insights. Adam's mission is to inspire leaders to build long-term resilience, even amidst massive disruption. His recently published book, “Change Proof: Leveraging the Power of Uncertainty to Build Long-Term Resilience,” comprehensively discusses this topic.
Previously Adam worked as a lawyer for 18 years before making a career switch, leading to the publishing of his previous book “Pivot: The Art & Science of Reinventing Your Career and Life”, a #1 bestseller in several publications like the Wall Street Journal and USA Today. He is also the CEO of More Love Media.

CEO Story: His previous career as a lawyer, his transition, and how the concept of resilience, which is extensively covered in his book “Pivot”, resonates significantly, especially after the onset of the pandemic.
Business Service: His work involves helping organizations and individuals understand the concept of resilience and navigate through challenging life situations.
Secret Sauce: Adam developed a resilience software designed to help leaders and individuals bolster their overall resilience.
CEO Hack: He speaks about the “Toggle Principle”, which encourages leaders to consciously unplug from their daily operations to recharge.
CEO Nugget: Adam believes that resilience breeds resilience. When leaders exemplify it, it permeates through the organization's culture, fostering a supportive atmosphere.
CEO Defined: Adam views being a CEO as a form of parentage, leadership that extends beyond oneself, introducing the notion of servant leadership.

People are going to be there committed at a level that at other work environments that just won't be.

Hello. This is Gresh from the IAMCEO podcast, and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you've been listening this year, you know that we hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we're repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories, topics, or as I like to call them, the business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, and what I like to call the CB nation architects who are looking to level up their organizations.
This month, we are focusing on operations. The systems we'll set you free. So think about systems, think about flow, sustainability, potentially working out in your morning routine, waking up early, e-commerce, and different business models. Think of the operations in the models that basically set up the foundation to allow the creativity within organizations, but also to make sure the trains are running on time and things are going as they should. Now, this is extremely important because we often can turn to the sexy parts of business and forget about the operations and how important that is.
So I really want to focus this month on this specific topic. Sit back and enjoy this special episode at the IAMCEO podcast. Hello. Hello. Hello. This is from the IAMCEO podcast. I have a very special guest on the show today. I have Adam Markel of More Love Media. Adam, super excited to have you on the show.
