323: Ronnie Doss: Are you committed to getting the results you want?

Today I am especially excited to bring on our special guest, Ronnie Doss.

It is good to be back! We took a bit of a break here at the 18STRONG Podcast getting our new facility up and operational, but we are back and have some awesome guests and content in the pipeline!

I don’t even know how to describe Ronnie Doss. He has been executing leadership training for the last decade in more than 10 countries working with leaders at the highest level, including global organizations like American Express, AT&T, the US Military, and NASA.

His mission ultimately is very clear regardless of the organization he is working with, we don’t get what we want, we get what we are committed to.

We don’t get what we want, we get what we are COMMITTED to.

Ronnie Doss

Ronnie has authored two books: Leading Lions and Dig. He is also the host of The Emerge Podcast.

  • How he helps navigate the roads of staying on track with personal goals and not seeing failure as the absolute that we sometimes do. He also goes into how we don’t ever find balance, we just create it.
  • Why he has an emphasis on exercise with all clients he works with and how self betterment has to happen in both the mind and the body.

  • The concept of motivation and commitment and how if you don’t make time you don’t find time.
