Ep.228 | Paul Epstein | Make Better Decisions Faster

Confidence. When you see the word, what comes to mind?

“I want more of it.” 

That’s typically the response I get from people. What about you? What would your life and leadership look like if you had more confidence?

On today’s episode of the Coming Up Clutch with J.R.™ show, I sit down with Paul Epstein – the man who took the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers from #28 in sales to #2. NUMBER 2! I’d say it took some confidence to walk into a role in what seemed like a lose-lose situation. That’s Paul’s M.O. The guy has a track record in the NFL and NBA for making great decisions and turning low morale teams into confident and courageous overachievers, even in the most uncertain of times. And we tap into all of that on today’s show!

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • The two keys to overcoming uncertainty
  • How to close the confidence gap
  • How to make better decisions faster
  • The role of core values in building unshakeable confidence and making more impactful decisions
  • Maintaining resilience, acknowledging your worth, and living a values-driven life
  • The “Head, Heart, Hands” equation as a tool for making better decisions
