Michael Veltri

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.

Questions I ask Michael Veltri:

  • What is your definition of aikido as it applies to business and life?
  • What are some of the principles of your book?
  • Why is the mind-body connection so important?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • How to avoid becoming “successfully miserable” and avoid the success trap
  • Why it’s important to set up support structures
  • Why empathy is so important in the business world
