Emptying Out the ‘Head Trash’
Ep. 87 - Meet Thresette Briggs, interviewed on TrailBlazersImpact Podcast, a designer of innovative, integrated performance solutions, who has been called a ‘voice’ for high-performance. Thresette Briggs saw the joy and unintended consequences of entrepreneurship while growing up. Her father was a source of inspiration given his business leadership and determination to succeed. But that often took him away from the family, and his young death at 56 weighed on her ambitions. Entrepreneurship was the dream, but she describes “head trash” needing to be emptied out for the journey ahead. So after enough time in the corporate world, Briggs knew with the right balance she could build up her career as a successful entrepreneur and mentor. Now she leads her firm Performance 3 as Chief Performance Officer. Thresette developed a coaching model so unique it was awarded a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office and uses it to guide organizations of all sizes who want to embark on business transformation.
