Our LiveLAB - Eric Fisher Academy has a runway show every ten weeks with their graduation ceremony. The runway shows at Eric Fisher Academy are a huge hit, drawing large crowds and community involvement.

Brendon Burchard: The World's Most Successful People Have 6 Surprising Habits In Common
by Marie Forleo
If you spend enough time reading books and listening to audios about finding the key to success — it’s inevitable that you’ll stumble upon contradicting advice. Of course, there’s not one right formula or approach to be successful. Different success methods work for different people. (Different methods also work for the same person at different stages of life.) But I always pay a bit more attention when a ‘key to success’ hypothesis is backed up by academic research. That’s why I was thrilled when my buddy Brendon Burchard told me about the high performance study he was doing for his latest book. Watch the video here.

We talk about misunderstandings people often have about coaching, and how we can coach our peers and even our managers to help them unleash their best work every day. Listen to the podcast here.
