Over the next several weeks, Stan and Chris will be embarking on a new mini-series, called “Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast.” The title comes from a concept in special operations, where operators move more methodically and slowly to make fewer mistakes.  In this series, we’re curious to hear how leaders are tackling unpredictability, being intentional in their leadership, and adapting to crises as they unfold. 


This week, we are teasing the mini-series with a conversation with Carl Liebert. Carl currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer of kwx of Keller Williams. A member of the United States Naval Academy’s basketball team, Carl went on to serve in the Navy, before navigating his way through a variety of positions in General Electric, Circuit City, Home Depot, 24Hour Fitness Worldwide, and USAA.


In this discussion, Stan and Chris learn more about how Carl navigates new industries and role positions. They get Carl’s take on the role that both truth, and curiosity, play in a board of directors meeting, and hear about how Carl thinks about his first 90 days at any position. We were really interested in hearing about the intentionality behind all of Carl’s decisions, as we start the “Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast” series of No Turning Back.
