Today’s guest is no stranger to the show as he has been featured on it before! Welcome Brett Culp, an acclaimed filmmaker and social entrepreneur. He is the personal cinematographer for Hollywood stars, music icons, authors, hall of fame athletes, and royal families, and his films have been featured on Netflix, Apple TV, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. His uplifting keynote speeches deliver practical methods for uniting teams for a meaningful mission and creating growth through trust and genuine connection.
Brett talks about the difficult social climate in which we currently live and what responsibility falls upon the shoulders of entrepreneurs to be a source of light for people. He also touches upon his view of leadership, how the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a shift in leadership mindset, the difference between managing and mentoring, how to unlock people’s hidden potential, the benefits of feedback and one-on-one communication, why stress makes us stronger rather than weaker, and so much more!
