fostering a community of people interested in exploring strengths
I don't know if you've ever had a chance to see Marcus on stage...but the guy is damn good at what he does. I work for him, and am rather close to "the man behind the curtain," and am even quite aware of many of the "quotable Marcusisms" that I've heard again and again - yet I'm still a fan boy when I see him in his element in front of a live audience. He really is that good - no smoke being blown here.
Engaging into the lens of a camera is something quite different however. Frankly, I think he's really good at that too. He's pretty easy to direct, and he's good at maintaining a presence and keeping you engaged. Again, not easy to do when the reality of the situation is you in a dark room, with lights shining on you, keeping energy/sincerity up while maintaining eye contact with a device...that has no eyes.
This is a collection of a few bloopers from about 8 hours of footage we captured with Marcus a couple years back.
It certainly gives me hope, because sometimes, it's even safe to laugh at a guru.
