Greg is a founder, the founder and executive coach over at Above the Rim Executive coaching. Greg, first off, welcome to the show and welcome to the community. Well, thank you, Adam. This is just really exciting for me and I’m looking forward to working with you on this. All right, Greg. So lot of, lot of business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, watch this program and we’re all looking, myself included, on a way to, to, to get an edge and a way to get ahead and to really maximize, you know, our, our performance, but also our significance, which go hand in hand.
So we’re gonna go deep into this topic today, but before we do we’ll stop, we’ll start this episode the way that we start them all with our mission matters minute. So Greg, we at Mission Matters, we amplify stories for entrepreneurs, executives, and experts. That’s our mission. Greg, what mission matters to you?
Well, as an executive coach, one of the things that I find with a lot of people is they’re very good at what they do, but a lot of times they struggle find, trying to find out where they want to go, what they want to do their next opportunity. And they let their career happen to them. So what I really enjoy doing and what my mission is, is to help professionals learn how to play their career above rim, how to take control of their career destiny and do it on purpose.
That’s my mission. Yeah, it’s great. And love having mission-based executives and entrepreneurs on the line to share, you know, why they do what they do, how they’re doing it, and really what we can all learn from that so we grow together. So Great having Yan and I guess just to get us kicked off here, so where did all of this start for you?
Like, were you always an preneur or the entrepreneurial type or like how did that happen for you? I wouldn’t say that I was always an entrepreneurial type. Yeah, but I’ve always been curious and I’ve always loved exploring opportunities, so I did have my own business. After I came back from Japan, I was working with companies to help them enter the Japanese market.
Another thing that I did was with that situation, it was doing very, very well until nine 11 hit and that kind of collapsed that, and then, After 28 2008, I was working with a company Jaguar, land Rover. They relocated to the East coast. My family didn’t particularly want to relocate to the East Coast from Southern California.
Mm-hmm. And at that point in time, I started working with a career coach and then, I really felt the calling to work with individuals and it was that dream, that calling, so to speak, to do what I do. That made me jump out and be an entrepreneur, and that’s where I got started on this. Hmm. So I, I wanna stay in those early days a little bit longer here, because I know, sure.
Some people will watched this and they’ve, they’ve never you know, they’ve never worked with a career coach or an executive coach. They don’t even necessarily know what that means. Maybe they’ve heard some stories, some other things. So let’s take you back into the early days of when you worked with maybe your first coach.
Like did you immediately take to that process or were you already adept and understood it? Or like, like how did that piece come about? Well, that was actually a little bit of a complex process in that once I knew that my position was being relocated, I was trying to figure out what did I wanna do next.
And I wasn’t really sure what that looked like. And one of my thoughts was professional athletes, professional musicians entertainers, they have. Coaches, they have agents, they’re always looking for ways to improve their performance. Mm-hmm. And so I had an opportunity to interview a few career coaches.
I had an opportunity to work in a couple of environments where I had great exposure to some tremendous career coaches. So I started working with some of them. And then as I was doing that, I started helping my friends and in that process I found it something that I just really love to do. So the thought of, well, I wanna be better, so why wouldn’t I hire a coach?
Hmm. And you mentioned that you’d worked with maybe multiple during that time. Did I hear that right? That is correct, yes. Yeah. And what was, what was kind of like that process like? Because I know that, and I don’t mean their individual coaching styles, by the way, but I know that some people, maybe they’ve even even explored with a coach in the past and they’re like I didn’t, it wasn’t quite what I.
Was expecting, but the way I, I’ll just, you know, talk about myself for a moment here is that I’ve worked with different coaches along the way and some, you know, I always get something out of it. So I’m a huge fan of executive coaching. I mean, my audience knows that for sure. But you know, sometimes, you know, you get one thing from one coach, you get something from another.
So like, what was your experience like? Well, absolutely, that’s true. And I think being able to work with a coach that identifies how you work, how you do things. Mm-hmm. That’s an individual situation that not every coach is for Every person you, you really wanna take some time and look into it. And the coaches that I’ve found, Some are very skilled and very helpful at certain aspects.
Others have their strengths in other areas, and so I was able to cherry pick and learn a lot of different things from a number of them. Yeah. And so now, and, and just I’m, I’m kind of going through this timeline here. Mm-hmm. So now you know you’re getting these benefits. You’re, you’re working with these coaches, you’re really enjoying the process or processes for some of them.
And now at some point you’re probably running around telling your friends about all this. Stuff you’re learning and they’re just like asking you more and more questions and now you’re helping them. And it kind of absolutely snowballs. Like that’s how it happened, right? Like you weren’t, you weren’t sitting back like, you know what, this is what I, it’s just you’re probably having a cup of coffee or tea.
You’re talking about the last conversation you had, and then they won’t let you shut up. Or you won’t shut up one of the two. Right? Absolutely. Absolutely. Oh, that’s awesome. And you’re, you have friends that you’re helping or other people in your network and around you that shift to, let’s just say go full-time or to also like say, you know what, this is, this is my column.
This is what I love doing. This is what I wanna, I wanna make a go at. How did that take place? I think it was, Pretty shortly after I left Jaguar Land Rover and working with the different coaches, I, I had a discussion with my wife about it. Mm-hmm. Had her complete support. I, there were a number of other people in my network that I had discussions.
What does this. Look like, how is this gonna develop? I remember having good discussions with a friend of mine David, and we talked about, okay, well what am I gonna call the company and what does it mean to you? And he helped me come up with a name above the rim because back in the day, many, many years ago when I was playing basketball regularly, I could play above the rim.
And it’s fun when you have your game above the rim. Yeah. And so I really wanted to think about how can I help? My clients realize their ability and reach their peak in playing above the rim, and that that’s how I came up with that. It’s awesome. So when you are now, so now you, you, you know the direction you’re going.
Did you decide and or you know, kind of pick your niche of the executive market? I know you work with a lot of C-suite executives, you work with a lot of did you pick that immediately or did you know who you wanted to coach or who you wanted to help immediately? Like how’d that work out?
Well, one of the things that I’ve learned is I enjoy working with all levels of people. Mm-hmm. My primary client is probably mid-management and above, but I also like working with students because one of the things I discovered is as I’m working with mid-management people or even C-level people, they’re saying, Greg, I wish I learned.
Back when I was just out of college, what you’re teaching me now. And so I’ve made some strides in working with younger people as well and I thoroughly enjoy that. But one of the things in networking and I don’t believe in accidents. I don’t believe in coincidences, but there are a number of people that have happened into my life and into.
Opportunities to work with them, that we’ve been able to forge some really good relationships, and that’s the exciting thing. Yeah. And I know one of the concepts that you’re, that you’re definitely known for is is to kind of view your career as a journey. So when I, I mean, that’s definitely all the entrepreneurs and executives watch this.
I, I depending on the level of, you know, where they’re at, but I’ve always seen it as a journey and it’s, it’s. The zigs and the zags and not necessarily knowing always what’s coming next, especially as an entrepreneur. Let’s let’s go further into the concept. Let’s get into the idea of how we really take this content and this information and maybe and, and make a difference.
So elaborate maybe on the, on the career part and how we should be looking at it from your point of view. Well, a lot of people, they get their job and they. Start focusing on the day in, day out grind and, and what can I do to work and focus on what’s right in front of me? And they do very well at their work.
But I kind of have an analogy. It’s like someone who, if you’re playing basketball mm-hmm. And you’re dribbling up the court, when I taught coached my kids and taught them how to dribble, they would watch the ball while they’re dribbling, but they wouldn’t see anything in. Else. And so a lot of workers, they’re watching the ball while they’re dribbling, they’re watching their work, but they’re not seeing anything else.
And suddenly they’re trapped. They, they lose a job and they’re wondering, okay, now what do I do? Mm-hmm. So being able to look up and see what’s going on, being able to have an idea of, this is what I really love to do, this is what I want to do. So having that plan laid out, mm-hmm. But along with that, it’s really important to have that curiosity, that as you meet people, you are exposed to new opportunities that were not on your radar.
Mm-hmm. And that’s when your career can take a zig or a zag. Yeah. And it becomes a very exciting opportunity. And that’s why the career is a journey. And I look at that journey. It’s not just about what you’re doing and what your successes are. Mm-hmm. But who are you going along on that journey with?
Mm-hmm. How are you impacting them? How are they impacting you? And that’s what this journey’s really all about. Yeah. And I like that you mentioned that by the way, that it doesn’t always have to be a career transition from the standpoint of, of you know, maybe a, a displacement or like a re a restructuring or something like that.
Like you could be, you know, based off of you being proactive and, you know, being out there and networking or whatever. Like, like you said. No, absolutely. It says you could have a huge opportunity that puts itself in front of you that you didn’t even, maybe if you had your blinders on, you wouldn’t even see.
Right. Absolutely. 100%. Oh, so I want to I like to give, and obviously like at the end of this I’ll, I’ll give you an opportunity to leave, you know, website, all of that kind of stuff so that our audience can follow up and connect cause only so much of your methodology we’re going to be able to cover in, in a podcast interview.
But I do like our, our viewers and listeners. To walk away with some tips and some, some things that are, are actionable. So let’s maybe, and I know it’s gonna be different for every person. I, I understand that. But let’s, let’s think about if somebody’s never done any type of, let’s say, executive coaching, and they kind of think that they’re, you know, that they wanna do it, but they kind of are uncertain.
Like, how does somebody really know from your mind if they’re ready to, to move forward with a coach? That, that’s a very interesting question. And how do you really know if you’re ready to move forward? I think a lot of people don’t think about the idea of having a team, so they, they just think, okay, my career is what I do.
It’s very natural for me to keep going with this. Hmm. But they don’t think about, okay, what more can I learn? Or how can a coach help me? And one of the things that I found in talking with people that have signed up with me is they said, well, I had this idea of what I might be able to accomplish. Mm-hmm.
But what really surprised me is there’s so much more that I learned. There’s so much more that I got out of this. So, I would explore encourage every professional to seek out coaches, to talk with them and to look at what can I do? Is my career worth enough to invest in coaching to take myself to the next level?
I’m very good at what I do. Am I willing to be stretched? Am I willing to go places that might be a little bit uncomfortable? Mm-hmm. See where that might take me. Yeah. So on, on my end. I know, and, and I, there’s zero neuroscience behind what I’m about to say, Greg. This is just my opinion, but I feel like people are wired differently and some of their motivations are, are different.
So absolutely. Like some people when they’re, there’s a transition or something and maybe they’re going towards the proverbial, maybe hitting bottom or something. They think, okay, I need help, I need a coach. Some people, when they’re doing good, in my opinion, they’re like you know, okay, I need a coach.
Like cuz I wanna maintain or I want to go. Further, I tend to be the one that if I’m doing good, I’m like, I’m looking for a coach. I’m like, okay, I’m, I might be breaking into a new level here if all goes right. So I need some help. I need some different vantage points. So that’s on my end. In your experience, like are there different stages or times and points when people should be looking for a coach?
I, I think you’re 100% right that people are wired differently and the ones that. Are looking for a coach when they’re on top. Those are the ones that are really kinda leading and proactively controlling their career destiny. Mm-hmm. When you wait till you’re on the bottom, that can, that’s always a good time to hire a coach and work with a coach, but you have to do a lot of digging out at that time.
Yeah. And that’s when a lot of people are desperate and mm-hmm. Are you willing to. Open up and trust in the process of what that’s gonna take you. So that’s a critical point to to consider. So I do work with all, all stages. Mm-hmm. But the people that are most effective are the ones who aren’t feeling the need.
That darn it. I need to do something now because, yeah, my career is in trouble. Yeah. What do you think holds back some of the people that, like, they’re doing well, they’ve been doing well for a long time, who they, you know, intuitively, a lot of, a lot of people. Let me say many people and understand the concept that elite athletes, whether you’re Olympic level professional or otherwise, all have coaches.
So as what do you think holds, holds back some of those elite entrepreneurs or executives that have been doing well? Could be maybe doing better, but, and. Probably think they know they need a coach cuz they can look at, you know, Olympians and, and professionals, but they still, they still haven’t gone that next step.
What do you think holds them back? I think part of it is getting into the daily grind of doing what they’re doing and focusing on what’s in front of them. Rather than focusing, you know, picking their head up and looking at, okay, where is everything going? Mm-hmm. And that’s a tendency that a lot of people have.
And you know, you want to focus on what’s in front of you to a large degree, cuz you wanna have success there. Mm-hmm. But you want to be able to step back and plan. And so there’s a lot of people that are very good at what they do. Mm-hmm. But in part of doing. Very successfully what they are currently doing.
That’s kind of all encompassing. And so where’s the bandwidth to start coaching? And that can be a challenge. Yeah, I, I can see that so many irons in the fire stretched thin. Absolutely. You know, you’re taking care of your business, your employees, your department, your divisions, and your and the last thing you’re thinking about is yourself, which is kind of counterintuitive, and I’m guilty of doing it too, so I’m not picking on anybody out there.
It’s counterintuitive, but ultimately, if you’re out of that spot or not able to do what you need to do, then it kind of all suffers anyway. So it’s a, it’s a tricky balance. I get what you’re saying. It, it is very tricky and it is counterintuitive. But being able to pull back and look at that Yeah. Is where you can really take it to the next level.
Hmm. So speaking of taking it to the next level, Greg let’s go further into your practice and your, and your methodology. So above the RIM executive coaching, tell us more about, about the company. Well, I offer a number of different programs. I do one-on-one coaching. I do workshops, I do on demand, but primarily what I really love to do, Is to help my clients take a deep dive into who they are.
Why do they do what they do? Why do they want to do it, and where do they want to do it? I believe that if you are working 40, 50, 60, 70 hours a week, that’s something you should be enjoying. Yeah. A lot of professionals, they think, okay, the job, it’s just I need to get a salary and that’s all I need. I need salary and benefits.
I don’t need to enjoy my work because it’s work. But if you’re gonna spend that much time and you can enjoy it, isn’t that gonna be a much better experience? Would you rather have an opportunity where it’s exciting to wake up in the morning and go and do your work? Or do you want to begrudgingly have to go in every single day, push that boulder up the same hill every single day, go home, that boulder rolls back down the hill and you have to do the same thing the next day.
And that’s how a lot of people feel about their career. Hmm. Yeah. And so, and so the, the main thing is, is that there is another, another way maybe go into, and I know again, we won’t go into the, in your entire process, but maybe for, again, just to give the, the, the listeners or viewers that have never worked with an Eve executive coach, but are curious like tell me maybe a little bit more about your process and what that looks like.
Right. And as I go into that and help them understand who they are, why, why they’re going where they’re going, then I help them to. Understand the value that they’ve given to previous employers, the value of what they accomplish. Mm-hmm. And being able to own that. One of the challenges that a lot of people face when they’re going through their career and suddenly there is a layoff and suddenly there is stuff going on or, or they’re not happy with how their previous position ended.
There’s baggage and there’s something called imposter syndrome that creeps in. Mm-hmm. They’ve had great success, but there are things that are happening that are causing them to doubt that or causing them to doubt that people they are talking to will understand. So what I help them do is take a look at what they’ve achieved, break it down into components, learn how to talk about it in a precise way that makes sense, and then go through a step-by-step process where they actually take complete ownership.
Of what they’ve been able to achieve and what their value is, what their why is. Then as they go through the process and even creating marketing collateral so you’re not relying just on your resume, but there are so many different things you can use, such as executive bios, case studies, methodology, one sheets, so white papers, special reports.
But as you spend time creating those things, You’re taking such greater ownership in your head of who you are. Mm-hmm. That when you go into an interview, and I’ve had so many clients come back to me and say, Greg, the process that I went through, mm-hmm. It was stretching. It was at times painful, but at the end, being able to master those interviews and nail the interviews when the game is on the line and stopped shooting air balls when the game is on the line.
That has been so impactful and it’s helped me in so many different ways, and that’s one of the things I love when they come back to me and say, Greg, it worked. Yeah. That’s awesome. And, and that’s gotta be the gratifying part of of, of finishing a process. Cuz what I find is that especially for for good or great executive coaches, like it’s a, it’s a give and take.
So meaning just like it’s a stretching process for every client or every person that you work with. It’s a stretching process. Like there’s also a certain amount of stretching that goes on from the, from the coach’s point of view, because every person, but their emotional needs, they’re, they’re like anything, their situation, their story, their baggage at times, right?
Like the things that you have to take on as a coach, like that goes both ways. Am I off on that or? It completely goes both ways. And the wonderful thing is I learned so much from the people that I work with. That it’s constantly stretching me as well, and it allows me to pivot and do things. So I mean, I have learned so much from the people that I’ve had the.
Opportunity to work with definitely goes both ways. Absolutely. Yeah. And I see that, and for anyone that’s been, you know, coaching for a certain amount of time and has had the opportunity to work with, you know, elite individuals, I see that they just have a different energy in my opinion. Because it, because of going through that process over and over and over again, you can’t help but also get better yourself.
So good insight there. So what is like a, so we’re talking about, that’s the one-on-one component of this. So what is this? You mentioned they come back to you. So how long is typically an engagement in turn? And I know it could vary, but like in general, how long is a typical engagement that somebody works with you?
A typical engagement one-on-one is generally six to eight months. Mm-hmm. And it has to be, and I ask, I ask you that question by the way, so that people understand that have never worked with a coach. It’s not a magic like thing. You’re not taking a red or blue green pill, whatever. You’re, you’re like, it takes time and work.
Right? There is a lot of unlearning and relearning and it, it is not a magical process. It’s not an easy process. No. And. It does take time to, to do things. So I would recommend, you know, people start going to coaching even while they are working. Mm-hmm. Just to build that process and lay the foundation.
So one of the things that I have found is after the process when I, I’m doing one-on-one coaching. I’ve been putting on a lot of my programs into on-demand format. Mm-hmm. And so they’ve been coming back to me and working with me on a regular basis, whether that be once a month, whether that be mm-hmm.
Once a quarter talking about what’s going on at work helping them solve because they. They can’t go home necessarily and talk about it because people in their family don’t understand if they’re having challenges. There are things that they cannot say at work. So of course, being able to talk with another professional about these things.
And the interesting thing is, in the process of talking about it, so often they’re coming up with their own solution just by verbalizing what’s going on. Yeah. Yeah, that’s a thing. And for anybody out there that is you know, high performing or reach a certain level, like you, you probably do have the answer inside yourself.
But if it’s like you need somebody to help bring that out, it’s interesting how that works. Just a dialogue going back and forth with that really helps. So yeah, they’re, they’re coming back and, and they I have networking meetings in the evening that they can attend. So a lot of them that Work with me through that long process.
Mm-hmm. Or I also have a, an accelerated boot camp where they take everything that I do in four to six months and they do it in a extremely tight, busy. Eight weeks. Yeah. It’s a very challenging program. And once they finish that, they often go into what I call the alumni program where they have access to, continued access to the material, access to the new, new materials the networking events, and keep that synergy going of constantly keeping your eye eyes.
Off the ball, but keeping your eyes open to see where the opportunities are. Mm-hmm. Doing that consistent proactive networking with curiosity so that mm-hmm. Suddenly when an opportunity comes up, they can explore that and ha have those fun zigs in their journey. Yeah. Yeah. And, and that makes total sense.
And it’s great that you have also that community component on the back end in terms of the, the networking and otherwise, because I mean, it’s, I, if we were thinking about the gym or something, it’s pretty common sense. You have this goal, whether it’s to lose weight, get in shape, whatever your goal was, and then okay, you hit your goal and then you’re like, all right, I’m not gonna go to the gym anymore.
I’m done. I hit, I already hit my goal. All right. Like, what do you think is gonna happen? Right. Exactly. Oh, that’s awesome. Is there go a little bit further. You, you did mention the online component, but go a little bit further into like what that entails. Cause I know a lot of individuals, the, the, the on demand, you know, post pandemic and even maybe before that was just getting more and more popular to make things more accessible when people are, you know, available.
And I feel like that expands the market. So of, of people that can benefit from your work. So tell, tell us a little bit more about that. Go a little further. Absolutely. Well, when the pandemic hit. I started doing live workshops and had great success, but I was limited to what I could do because I had to be there each and every workshop.
Yeah. And there was limited amount of actual. Work that they could do in the workshop because there was a lot of content being delivered and, and helping people move through the process. So starting last year, I started converting all of my information into actual on demand, demand content. And this has really been quite exciting because people can go through it at their pace.
They can, you know, some people actually put it at 1.5 times the speed, speed it up. So they go through it a little bit quicker. They stop, they pause, they take notes, they review it. By having everything broken up into segments, into bite sized chunks, it makes them e, it easier for them to process it on their schedule when they can do it, but also easily go back and review it to help them with the process.
And that’s been a huge a advantage. Yeah, I, I’m a micro learner for sure. Like I need the bite size. Like that’s how I learned best. I’ve found obviously, well, I shouldn’t say obviously, but when I was coming up ranks of corporate America and taking all my exams and things like this, I don’t really think we had much in the form of micro learning as far as I can re recall.
But now after I started to get. Used to it and understood what it was. And then I started to, I just, the retention for me was just so much more. And I’m not against, again, an all day seminar or anything like that. I do that and I think those, but every, I feel like all these different learning styles, whether it’s one-on-one, whether it’s online, whether it’s.
The kind of the group format, I feel like they all attack your brain. Again, zero. I don’t know if there’s any real neuroscience, but for me they all attack the brain in a different way. And I just feel like the combination of utilizing all those things just make their, the retention and the possibility for, you know, true progress, which is the reason why someone would invest their time and money into something.
Along the lines of executive coaching, right. Absolutely. That’s 100%. You know, everyone learns differently. Yeah. So being able to put it in a way that allows them to get things visually, auditorially, tactily mm-hmm. Giving them a step-by-step process where they can actually work through it themselves.
See that, yeah. Go back and review it. It, it, it just makes it a greater learning experience and as you say, helps them to retain it much better. Other than which I’m gonna give you the opportunity to leave your website, things like that. But other than, which I do want my audience to do, other than going to check out your website and giving you a call, what’s something that they can do today?
Something small, something actionable, something that kind of gets them going, like, what’s an exercise or a thing they can do today to start heading in the right direction? What I would challenge them to do is take 15 minutes to really think about when they are working. What do they really enjoy doing with their work?
There are some things that they will enjoy. There are some things they won’t, but then write down what it is you, and then what is the process you go through and think about that and kind of jot down some ideas. Hmm. And then with that, think about when was the first time I really discovered when the light bulb flashed on and said, wow, I really enjoyed that.
Yes, and start thinking about why you’re doing what you’re doing. That that would be a great exercise just to sit down and think about it. That’s a good one. All right. As I mentioned in the beginning of this interview, so Greg is, and I’m happy to announce an author in one of our upcoming books some our best selling business leaders books.
And we’re not gonna go too far on this today, Greg, and this is intentional. So for everybody listening and watching this, the reason why we’re not is cuz we will be bringing Greg back on for a part two of this interview. But we do want a little teaser. And when he, and when Greg does come back on the show, The book will already be live and out there and and launched.
But keeping it high level. Greg, what are some of the things that you plan to present in the upcoming book? I’m focusing on the fact that your career is a journey. And how do you approach your career? And a lot of people, again, their, their career is a means to an end to support their family, but it’s nothing beyond that.
And if you can think about it as a journey and how that will impact you how that can help you. At the end of the day, have a career with growth, have a career with significance that goes far beyond the, the salary that you earn. How, how are you just impacting people? And so that’s what I’ll be getting into.
Fantastic. Well I’m gonna cut you off there, Greg, because I got a lot more questions, but I’m gonna wait till the book’s out for those. So that being said I mean, you got a lot going on above the riv executive coaching got this book coming out. Of course. I just have to ask, I mean, what’s next?
What’s next for you? What’s next for your firm? What’s next is finishing getting all my products, my programs on in the on demand. Yeah. But I have probably about 15 new concepts that I’m working on to put together new courses, new ideas. One of the things you and I discussed recently, we are on a call together with a number of other experts talking about AI and how is that impacting professionals and.
So that’s one thing that I’m gonna be attacking. And I have about five others that I’m looking at, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what the rest of 2023 has in store. And it, it’s been a good ride so far and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. Fantastic. And if somebody’s listening to this and they want to follow up and learn more about working with you and your team what’s the best way for them to do that?
There are two good ways to do that. Number one, My website is above the rim.us. Mm-hmm. Another good way is to find me on LinkedIn. Okay. And my LinkedIn URL is very easy to remember. All you need to remember is Greg l Johnson, so it’s www.linkedin.com/in/greg l Johnson. And connect with me. I do ask that, you know, my email address, but it’s very easy to find that it’s on the about section of my profile.
Yeah, fantastic. And we’ll put by the way. So we’ll put the links to your website, of course, in your LinkedIn profile, in the show notes so that our audience can just click on the links and head right on over.
