Diana WinklerDomestic Violence, Episodes, Physical Violence

Our episode today features Ken Keis who talks about how to live our lives on purpose instead of letting life happen to us. He shares his journey of growing up on a dairy farm and realizes that this was not the life he wanted for himself. He talks about his family originating from Hungary and the history of abuse that his parents endured. His inspiring story continues as he overcomes a learning disability of dyslexia and finally fulfills his dream of becoming an international author. He gives us practical and tangible steps to get out of the hole we find ourselves in and gain the courage to achieve our dreams. At the end of the show, Ken gives away a free copy of his book The Quest For Purpose! So you’ll definitely want to listen to this episode and take advantage of this offer.

Have you ever found yourself at a place in life where you just didn’t fit? Born and raised expected to take over his family’s dairy farm, Ken is no stranger to radical change and growth. It wasn’t until he owned a farm himself that he woke up one day at the crack of dawn (as usual) and asked himself, “if I did this for the next 20 years, would I be satisfied?” The answer was a resounding and immediate “NO!” Ken decided to take action. It was terrifying. But after an extremely awkward and intimidating conversation with his family–where he had to explain why he was breaking three generations of Eastern European family tradition–he began to pursue his passion in speaking and sales. Ken learned not to let fear hold him in a position where he would ultimately be miserable. It was the first step. Ten years as a sales trainer later, Ken found himself traveling worldwide as a speaker. At first it seemed like he was living the dream: highly sought after, hopping from country to country, bringing in a six-figure salary working for big names like Chrysler. Except that he never saw his wife or kids. And soon, the stress of never taking time off began to take its toll. Once again, Ken found himself in an unsustainable situation. He learned the hard way that what he values most is his family and health… and thankfully was able to make a change before it was too late. He became the leader of Consulting Resource Group, an organization that has helped more than 1 million people in 50,000 organizations worldwide improve employee satisfaction and productivity. Today, Ken’s passion remains leading others to experience the same clarity and joy he did by creating a life of purpose, and empowering leaders to empower others. With more than 4 million written words, 10,000 hours of consulting and speaking experience, and co-authoring of 10 professional development tools, Ken has had a profound impact on the world’s leadership landscape for the last 32 years.
