What if Your Crazy is Calling You to Your Genius?

Could it be that despite your fear, embracing the crazy or cracked parts of yourself might be immensely beneficial to your leadership? Let’s face it; we’ve all been through our battles. Some are more severe than others. Consider this; the pain you are experiencing is not designed to break you but rather to break you open. What if you opened up and allowed yourself to fully experience that cracking, knowing that it is through those cracks the light could penetrate and illuminate what you may have hidden from yourself?

Our guest for the next two episodes certainly understands that. Susan Clarke and her partner CrisMarie Campbell are the co-founders of Thrive Inc. They’ve spent 20 years helping men, women, couples, and teams to resolve difficult conflicts and create solid and thriving relationships.

Susan Clarke and her partner co-host a podcast, The Beauty of Conflict, and have given presentations on conflict resolution, communication, teamwork, and creative problem-solving at Fortune 100 companies like Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, AT&T, and Nationwide, and at the Gates Foundation, University of Washington Medical Center, San Francisco Giants, and many others.

Yet, at 24, Susan’s entrepreneurial path became a quest to find a solution to a terminal cancer diagnosis. What Susan discovered was Crazy, Cracked, Warm, and Deep, which is the name of her latest book; her memoir. This is a stirring history;

however, it’s also a primer on how to locate and remember the broken and separated parts in each of us, clearing the pain so the dark spots get the needed light to live forward.
