Mark Silverman has the classic "rag to riches" story. Going from alcohol and substance abuse to homelessness to mansion and sports car and all the trappings of success.
His perspective has given him a wealth of knowledge and wisdom to share.
When we got on the subject of boundaries and relating with those around us, Mark shared some profound insights. We dove into the stages of boundary setting starting from the harsh oversetting to the humble and timid apologies and finally ending up setting boundaries with your knees and elbows. Those knees and elbows allow you to create space. You can be unapologetically you.
We talked about the consequences of doing that.
When Mark used to enter a room he was everyone's friend. He was a chameleon, shifting himself to reflect back wheat each person needed. He was eminently likeable.
When he started speaking his mind and sharing his real thoughts and setting appropriate boundaries, he was shocked to discover not everyone wanted to be his friend. He got in more verbal scuffles. And many people walked away hurt or offended.
Months or years later, many of those same people came back to say that he told them exactly what they needed to hear, even if it was offensive.
We unpack addiction, what it takes to be a great coach, and so much more!
