Freedom is fundamentally who we are as Americans. But despite speaking of freedom a lot, we rarely explore or want to accept the other side of that equation; accountability and responsibility.
Jean-Paul Sartre says, “Freedom is what we do with what is done to us.” Existentialists believe we act ourselves into being and are free to change who we are and become the thing we want to become.
In this episode, I’m exploring the concept of freedom in leadership and the mindset shift that is required to help others develop the ability to see how their own freedom demands accountability.
Perry believes the world deserves better leadership; that in every human interaction there is the opportunity to either build others up or tear them down; and that leadership is the choice we make in those moments.
These beliefs led Perry to create the Potential Leader Lab. He wanted to offer those who share his beliefs the space and safety to explore transformative ideas, experiment with new behaviors, and evolve into the leaders they were meant to be and that the world needs.
This is a framework he has used again and again with his Vistage peer advisory groups and companies like Turn-Key Tunneling, Convergint, Haughn & Associates, I Am Boundless, Ketchum & Walton, LSP Technologies, and Ahlum & Arbor.
Perry lives and works on the shores of Buckeye Lake in Ohio, in the mountains of northwest Georgia, and on the beach in Anna Maria, Florida with his amazingly creative wife Lisa. They have 2 rescue dogs and are intermittently visited by their 3 wonderful children throughout the year. Perry & Lisa are living life in crescendo and focused on exploring, experimenting, and evolving their vision of a life they have no desire to retire from.
