How to Apply the Principles of Aikido to Entrepreneurship
My guest for this week’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is Michael Veltri. He is a keynote speaker, serial entrepreneur, leadership expert, and the author of the book, The Mushin Way to Peak Performance. He is also a professional athlete, two-time cancer survivor, and decorated Marine veteran. He and I discuss how the art of aikido can apply to your business.
From ancient Japanese warriors to brain science; from business titans to academic research, Michael tapped wide-ranging sources to develop a groundbreaking model for better decision-making. Surprisingly simple and eminently effective, Veltri’s approach has impacted some of the most prolific organizations and leaders in the world.
Veltri is also a master-instructor in the Japanese martial art of aikido. He brings his martial arts discipline and precision to every keynote speech inspiring, motivating, and educating audiences worldwide.
