16 'Who' over 'what' with Brandon Dempsey

16 'Who' over 'what' with Brandon Dempsey

Brandon Dempsey is a super-passionate Dad of two kids. He had 13 siblings growing up.

He’s a serial entrepreneur currently running two companies. Brandon is also an Iron Man, author, speaker, professor, a non-profit leader, an adventurer and he runs a couple of nonprofits. All of this is only possible because Brandon his truly highly focussed and has clarity of vision on who he wants to be. He is a gifted strategist who is able to execute.

In this session Brandon shares his own learnings and his key-strategies on teaching his kids intentionality and being present. We talk about his value-set as a dad and how he himself applies intentionality and accountability to family life.

One very powerful concept Brandon shares is the “who” over “what”.

The most powerful takeaways for me as a Dad where:

  1. I want to be 100% present at home, phone off, watch off.
  2. My interaction with strangers has a huge impact on how my children interact with others, too.
  3. Take intention on how I can become the person I want to become and put guardrails in place where necessary.
  4. The concept of “building a better who” is more powerful than focusing on “what I want to do”.
