ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Shawn is a blow-it-up, mess-with-people, risk-taking natural big thinker. He’s what would happen if disruption and divergence had a baby. He’s been working with leaders from all kinds of industries and backgrounds for three decades, and has sometimes even been called a corporate pastor because he walks with people—all people—with an open heart and a commitment to telling the truth. He has no trouble being the bull in the china shop to get people thinking differently about the world around them.
Robin is a naturally creative thinker, master of metaphor and analogies, and somewhere in between Michael and Shawn on the disruption meter. To almost everyone that she meets, she’s the one who’s way out there. She’s not afraid of thinking big and always interested in blowing sh*t up. But she met her match with Shawn because he’s challenged her to embrace being uncomfortable, which has helped her get real and grow. He’s definitely putting the radical in the relationship. Also, please feel free to call her “Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons.”
When it comes to risk, Michael is pretty much the opposite of Shawn. He used to think that he was a push-the-envelope kind of person until he started this disruption journey. Now he sees that he’s the one who often starts with a “no” and overthinks pretty much everything. He won’t apologize for thinking before he jumps, but he also knows that his life has been changed by these mindsets and heartsets. If you’re reading this with any reluctance, though, you’re definitely in his tribe.
