Forget About Pre-Covid, Win In The New Normal With John Register
How do you succeed in the new normal? Don't use the old stuff in the new environment. It doesn't work! Marla DiCarlo and Susan Frew present John Register, a Paralympic Silver Medalist, Combat Army Veteran, and Bestselling Author.
In this episode, John shares with Marla and Susan how you need to grow where you're planted. For John, "normal" refers to the rituals that lead you into a rhythm of elevation to arise and create desired results. So adjust your rituals to the new environment, and grow where you are! Tune in and be inspired by John's tenacity and grit.
John Register is a two-time Paralympian, Paralympic Games SilverMedalist, Persian Gulf War veteran, and TEDx Motivational Speaker. He embraced a “new normal” in becoming an amputee following a misstep over a hurdle while training for the 1996 Olympic Games, after participation in two consecutive Olympic trials.
An Oak Park, Illinois, native, Register discovered how to “amputate his fear of disability” and founded the U.S. Olympic Committee Military Sport Program in the early 2000s. He has launched a book titled: 10 Stories to Impact Any Leader: Journal Your Way to Leadership Success, as business leaders return to work with their staff amid stressful circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic and the recent unrest in our urban cities. Register teaches others through his “Hurdling Adversity” speeches and podcasts to “amputate their fear and embrace their new normal,” as they discover “stories within themselves.” He finds that “it is the personal stories that inspire teams more profoundly with greater impact.”
Register is a four-time All-American graduate of the University of Arkansas. He served six years in the U.S. Army—including in operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and in active-duty with the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program—winning nine gold medals in the Armed Services Competition and two world Military Championships.
