John Stix: How Passion Ignites Engagement

John Stix, keynote speaker for the DrivingSales Canadian Dealer Forum 2018, speaks at the Human Capital Institute in Denver about passion, company values and how to drive engagement.

I’m on a mission to personally speak to leaders around the world, and to tell our story in the hopes that you’ll find inspiration.

Year 10- I walked in the door of the dream that I helped create.

Imagine- from a basement apartment we started with nothing. The dream that I helped create, and I didn’t want to be there anymore.

I lost my passion.

It was a very hopeless feeling.

I knew that this was not sustainable.

This was something that could tear us apart, and tear us down.

So I did what any entrepreneur would do.

I went into my office, closed the door, and said, “I have to fix myself.”

My staff could sense that I was disengaged, and I’m not being authentic.

I became engaged with what that meant.

I started reading ancient philosophies, and studied what made leaders back then.

How did they engage before the internet?

I realized that I found my purpose as a purpose again.

It wasn’t marketing, sales or being a president.

It was about caring for people.

I forgot that we really showed we cared at one point.

And at that moment in time, I started to look inward to me as a leader, and what I could do.

We created a brand new mantra, company purpose and a whole set of company values.

“I’m in” is an emotion that binds us all together.

Try to look inward. Try to be vulnerable, and look inside to find your authentic self as a leader.

Through that you will find passion, and from that passion you will find happiness and a purpose that comes with engagement.

This is very motivating, thank you! You're so right, people and relationships are what matter. In personal life and business life!
