687: Align what you do with who you are, with Laura Gassner Otting

Here is a new term and topic I’ve now added to my vernacular and reality, “consonance”. Consonance is the agreement or compatibility between opinions or actions. What you will hear in this show is how having consonance in your life, or not, massively alters everything you do. My guest is Laura Gassner Otting. Her gig is helping people get “unstuck”  and finally achieve the extraordinary results they desire. She’s turned on by the audacity of The Big Idea and that larger-than-life goal you just can’t seem to shake. My muse is the message she communicates in her book, Limitless: How to Ignore Everybody, Carve Your Own Path, and Live Your Best Life. In the book Laura helps readers discover their consonance — how they align what they do with who they are — to achieve their limitless potential. Laura has served as a Presidential Appointee in Bill Clinton’s White House, helping shape AmeriCorps; left a leadership role at respected nonprofit search firm, Isaacson, Miller, to expand the startup ExecSearches.com and she founded and ran the Nonprofit Professionals Advisory Group. She is also the author of Mission-Driven, a book for those moving from profit to purpose.
