Our Signature Move
"We live up to or down to the expectations of those with whom we live and work”. Life's greatest joys and pains are linked to our most critical relationships. The quality of our life is determined by the quality of our relationships.
Communication needs to be focused on meaning, not just the words that are used. This gets executed by confirming what's been said, and clarifying what we heard. People can use our own words against us if there is not a mutual understanding of meaning.
Emotions + Attitude + Feelings = Energy. Regardless of it being positive or negative, happy or sad, it's all pure energy. When directed toward mutually agreed upon outcomes, results can always be positive.
It's about the initial yes, and the inevitable no's. And understanding that when we comply, with other's needs more than our own, it results in stress, anxiety, and disappointment. Commitment is the fuel that energizes up and propels us, especially in the most challenging and difficult times.

When Hegele’s wife Angie passed away from cancer in 2010 at the age of 42, he was left to raise his four young children on his own. Every aspect of who he is as a person as well as the company he founded was about to be put to the ultimate test.
