The Chasm Between Knowing And Doing
Play • 34 min

Within your organization, there is a great chasm between what you know and what you accomplish. You create lists of initiatives and tasks so long that they become overwhelming and somehow distract us from the actions that have actual importance.

In this episode, I’m exploring the mechanisms that stop us from doing despite knowing. The cognitive biases around our underestimation of time, cost, and risk, and the need to focus on creating processes and systems to ensure you and your team meet your desired outcomes.

Perry believes the world deserves better leadership; that in every human interaction there is the opportunity to either build others up or tear them down; and that leadership is the choice we make in those moments.

These beliefs led Perry to create the Potential Leader Lab. He wanted to offer those who share his beliefs the space and safety to explore transformative ideas, experiment with new behaviors, and evolve into the leaders they were meant to be and that the world needs.

This is a framework he has used again and again with his Vistage peer advisory groups and companies like Turn-Key Tunneling, Convergint, Haughn &  Associates, I Am Boundless, Ketchum & Walton, LSP Technologies, and Ahlum & Arbor.

Perry lives and works on the shores of Buckeye Lake in Ohio, in the mountains of northwest Georgia, and on the beach in Anna Maria, Florida with his amazingly creative wife Lisa. They have 2 rescue dogs and are intermittently visited by their 3 wonderful children throughout the year. Perry & Lisa are living life in crescendo and focused on exploring, experimenting, and evolving their vision of a life they have no desire to retire from.
