The talk shiFt Podcast features interviews with “rock stars” from many different industries and backgrounds. Interviews are a central component of the Tom Leu’s Lifestyle Initiative Training™ resources.
As the host of the Ground Level TV show, writer and speaker, Tom Leu, has interviewed hundreds of people from multiple business, artistic, academic, and entertainment fields.
Tom’s passion is to interview the many “rock stars” among us and find out what makes them tick; what drives them toward their definition of “success.” The mission is to uncover and discover their key principles of success psychology, and philosophies of achievement both personally and professionally, and then share it with the tS audience. This isn’t celebrity gossip (many who we interview aren’t “celebrities”… yet), as much as it’s the sharing of success insights by movers & shakers in the real-world.
Tom shares these insights and calls them “RockStar” Revelations. The purpose is to inspire, to be inspired, and to learn from each other… taking what you like and leaving the rest, while putting it all into practice in the real-world where applicable.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a model, a musician, or a mechanic… the Tom’s purpose is to highlight how movers and shakers kick-ass in the real-world. It’s less about money, and more about the motivation, inspiration, and perseverance necessary to be the best at what you do the best.
talk shiFt™ interviews focus on philosophies of success, perseverance, recovery, risk-taking, failure, fear, uncertainty, change, communication, and personal achievement among other topics. It’s less about what you do and more about who you are. It’s for the 5%.
talk shiFt interview questions encourage critical thinking and contemplation. Deliberately deeper, philosophical discussions are the goal. Questions and conversations attempt to get at the core of each person’s truth, without a guarded, watered-down version being presented. We’ll ask interesting questions; fun questions; provocative questions. Without these types of questions… it’s just another interview, so what’s the point right? The end-game is revelation for the participant(s), the audience, and the interviewer.
“Being an on-air guest with Tom Leu felt like an episode of ‘Inside the Actor’s Studio.’ Great questions; great conversation. I came away from the interview feeling very fulfilled.” ~ Michael Corin, Anavox
