Unleashing Curiosity & Growth with O'Brien McMahon - A Father's Journey

The Quarterback DadCast

22-11-2023 • 1 hr 4 mins

A huge shoutout goes to Megan McCann, who graciously introduced our next guest, O'Brien McMahon.  For nearly the last 15 years, O'Brien has been providing fantastic Employee Benefits, Retirement, and Commercial Insurance programs to companies across the world at Lockton.  Additionally, he hosts the weekly People Business Podcast, which is a great listen!

However, today, we talk to O'Brien, the dad and learn how he is working hard to become that QB of his household!  Our discussion deepens into parenting, personal growth, and the power of referrals. McMahon shares his gratitude for precious home time with his two boys and his thoughts on the 'grinder' mentality.  We also explore curiosity, belief, grace, and forgiveness!

Additionally, we explore the power of storytelling and how he and his wife have applied their insights to raising two curious boys. The conversation also touches on the Medici Effect, which discusses how innovation comes from diverse industries, cultures, and disciplines when they all intersect, bringing ideas from one field into another.  This has been applied to his family's success strategy and how it translates to parenting, focusing on fostering individual interests and not rushing children through potentially character-building experiences.

We explore energy management, the influence of our childhood experiences, and the importance of clear communication with partners.   Don't miss out on the enlightening discussions on personal growth, including how feedback and openness to coaching can significantly impact our development.

Lastly, please go out and get a copy of O'Brien's new book, "How You Become You, " which is out this week!!!!
