Some of my favorite groups to work with are those who serve our communities each and every day. I was excited yesterday when I received my POST certificate so that the leadership training I provide for law enforcement agencies in Connecticut can now afford participants their much needed credits.

"I've been thinking about our conversation yesterday and woke up feeling hopeful this morning - the first time in a very long time. I wanted to pass on my gratitude, you're helping me focus!"

I received this text earlier today and am so grateful to be able to help my clients become stronger and more focused leaders. I love my speaking / training / and teaching, but coaching clients one on one offers another form of satisfaction...and I want more of it!

Anyone who has attended any of my presentations about Major League Leadership knows that David Ortiz was one of my favorite interviews for Lead Me Out to the Ballgame. On and off the field David demonstrates Major League Leadership, saying that one of his goals is to bring people together and to bring fun to the game! When I spoke to David he was open and friendly and had a big smile; he seemed genuinely interested in talking leadership with me! As the newest member of the MLB Hall of Fame I am confident Big Papi will continue demonstrating Major League Leadership and doing great things for the community!

Congratulations, Papi, well done!

I am proud to serve on the Board of Directors for Homes for the Brave, and was glad to be able to conduct a leadership training for their staff last month. It feels great to 'give back', and helping to serve those who served for us is rewarding on many levels.

Congratulations to the newest members of the MLB Hall of Fame, including the great Tony Oliva, who I had the honor of interviewing for Lead Me Out to the Ballgame. Tony shared with me how the managers he played for all did a great job of picking up their players when they needed it. Supporting our people is a key tenet of Major League Leadership, and one that Tony felt was key to leadership success!


I have the privilege and honor of working with and teaching many great veterans. I never get tired of saying, ‘thank you for your service’!

Today, and every day, we thank you.


A huge loss today to me personally and to the field of psychology and management as we lost Professor Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Mike was my doctoral mentor and had a profound impact on me and my career, and subsequently on my clients, students, and family.

Rest in Peace, Mike, and thank you for helping so many of us find our way into Flow.


Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi was born in Fiume, Italy on September 29, 1934, the son of Hungarian diplomat Alfred Csikszentmihalyi (né Hausenblasz) and Edith Jankovich de Jeszenicze. As a refugee in postwar Rome, he attended the Classical Gymnasium “Torquato Tasso,” and later developed an interest in psychology. He moved to the United States in 1956 to pursue that interest, attending the University of Chicago where he wrote a Ph.D on artistic creativity with Jacob W. Getzels. After spending six years teaching at Lake Forest College, he returned to Chicago to join the faculty in 1971. He remained there for three decades before moving to Claremont Graduate University where founded the Quality of Life Research Center in 2000 and taught until his retirement.

Csikszentmihalyi is best known for his work on the concept of “Flow,” used to describe a state of optimal experience where one’s skills match the challenges of a situation, and also for his role as a founder of the subfield of positive psychology. Underlying this work was his groundbreaking use of pagers and questionnaires to produce a database based on people’s self-reports of their ordinary experience. Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience became a bestseller in 1990, introducing conclusions based on his experiential database using warm, humanistic prose. The Evolving Self (1993), Creativity (1996), and Good Business (2003) expanded his theories in a variety of directions. Because his method generated a cross-section of daily experience, his psychology paid more attention to positive states like enjoyment and creativity than many of his predecessors, and formed the theoretical background of his collaboration with Martin Seligman on their influential 2000 article in American Psychologist that introduced positive psychology. This work was recognized by appointment as a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and his receipt of the 2009 Clifton Strengths Prize and the 2011 Széchenyi Prize.

In Chicago, Mihaly met Isabella Selega, a graduate student in Russian history, and they were married in 1961 at Saint Hyacinth’s. She was at her husband’s side when he passed away sixty years later. Their two children, Mark and Christopher, followed him into academics, and currently teach at UC-Berkeley and Cornell University. Mihaly was a loving father-in-law to their respective partners Annie Hope and Gemma Rodrigues, and a caring grandfather to Emily Isabella, Henry Stephen, Kinga Jane, Aschalew, Zofia Rose, and Iris Althea Diana Isabella.

Mihaly had a sharp sense of humor, especially his penchant for making absurd or ironic comments in a deliberately impassive manner. His empathetic nature and low-key style of presentation could also take people by surprise, and were one reason for his popularity and long-lasting friendships with students, colleagues and readers. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Center for Biological Diversity ( and Habitat for Humanity.


We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we will always be free. - Ronald Reagan

"We recommend Dr. Fero to any other emergency services, as well as any company, looking to increase the skills of their leaders.

Leadership in the fire service requires, respect, honesty, passion, relationships, communication and many other qualities. Dr. Fero discussed all of these with our members. He made our members think outside of their comfort zone and discuss what they felt they were good at and what they could improve upon. The discussions Dr. Fero fostered kept everyone engaged in a high energy atmosphere." - Thomas Lenart, Deputy Chief of Training, Greenwich Fire Department
