Robb Holman – Lead the Way to Better Leadership | Ep. 131

Robb Holman is a life-long serial entrepreneur and the CEO of Holman International, a global leadership consultancy. He’s also the author of the best-selling book, Lead the Way. Today, Jesse and Robb talk leadership done differently.

“Light yourself on fire with passion and people will come from miles to watch you burn.” – Robb Holman

Robb Holman – What’s Firing Him Up?

Robb is a successful entrepreneur, speaker, coach, author and man of passion. His greatest passion is his family. Watching his wife and kids do what they love and being able to help and inspire them to do what they love, is what fires Robb up. The inspiration he gives to leaders is the same he gives to his family.

He doesn’t like to categorize his time. He doesn’t put on his work hat or his family hat. To Robb, that’s tiring and unhealthy and causes undue stress. He views his life as one wheel with many spokes. He is whoever he is wherever he goes. There’s an ease and expectancy to it. He’s free to be himself and feels liberating to Robb.

“Live a life of intentional gratitude.” – Rob Holman


Today so many people are into self-help they think if I could just be like this person or that person, I’d be a better me. Robb sees this as a fallacy and a huge waste of energy. Stop trying to make a better you or compare yourself to others. Robb challenges you to channel that energy into defining the seeds of greatness that are already in you. To Robb, this is what authenticity is really all about.

“We need to learn and be aware about the importance of going after the one.” – Robb Holman on focusing and being present
