For the past eight years, I have been doing a deep dive into the subjects all men: don't want to talk about, think they know all about them they need to know, and are the stumbling blocks to their success and happiness: fear, ego, sorrow, guilt, shame, joy and love. As a result, I have what I believe are profound insights into how to be truly happy and as a result successful. I call it: Having a 6A life. This is not the typical "studies show that if you do this, you will be happier". Instead, it is a set of tools that will change your self-sabotaging beliefs and habits into self-fulfilling ones.
A Stanford BSEE and MBA, entrepreneur and inventor, Tom’s proprietary method is an extension of the principles of David Richo’s 5As. This, in combination with his experience as a Silicon Valley turn-around CEO and Vistage chair, allows Tom to address contention at the C level in ways that take the focus off the symptoms (the issue at hand) and on to the source (the underlying issues) for a long term permanent mitigation.
In addition to his 25+ years in Silicon Valley sales, marketing, R&D, and management, Tom is the founder of Willow Pond Ranch and the Vice Chairman of Breakthrough Men’s Community in Seaside.
Willow Pond Ranch provides the ideal retreat environment for week long intensive executive trainings that lead to reduced contention and new more effective problem solving modalities breaking ineffective habitual confrontations. One-on-one coaching is also available.
