MW060 — Coach and Wide-Angled Observer, Luke Iorio: A Way of Being

It’s no secret, as humans, we are all prone to being triggered by live events and encounters that cross our path each and every day. It’s in the acceptance of these conflicts that we are able to choose how we react and show up accordingly. But how could we get a deeper understanding of ourselves, and use our observations of others around us to show us where we can do better?

In this week’s Meaningful Moment, Luke discusses a thoughtful technique inspired by a recent interview with psychologist, Dr. Bill Crawford, which involves a deeper reflection and understanding of our expectations of others.

When a loved one — a family member or close friend — is triggered by a situation, how do we hope they will show up? What qualities and values do we want them to embrace? What lessons would we teach them and do we hope they will learn? And how can we use this hopefulness for others to then measure our own current state of being and how we exhibit our values in the face of daily challenges?

Listen in as Luke shares his own experience and offers guidance for embracing a deeper way of being in our own lives.

Meet the host, Luke Iorio
All you really need to know is this: Luke Iorio is a dad, a spouse, an entrepreneur, a conscious growth strategist, coach, blogger, podcaster, a wide-angled observer, and enthusiastic participant in the game of life who seeks to ask and answer, “What’s truly possible?”
So where does that all come from? Well, for that we need to answer this: How does a shy kid from the suburbs of New Jersey grow up to become a conscious strategist, sought-after coach and speaker, and disrupter of life’s “good enough” status quo?
In a nutshell, Luke intentionally pushed through some of his most palpable moments, or what he calls inflection points. These moments included standing on stage, gripping a microphone, and getting totally out of his comfort zone. This repeated intention to “choose different” has catapulted Luke toward stellar success.
So, what happens AFTER you choose…when you start to take meaningful action? That’s when an inflection point becomes an open road — a pathway to living your intended purpose.
Luke’s path looks something like this…he became President of The Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching at age 32, and has since graduated more than 11,000 coaches, leaders, athletes, and professionals across 44 countries, all of whom share his vision and desire for expanding our human potential and creating lasting, conscious change.
You could say Luke’s manifesto reads something like an everyday philosopher and spirited entrepreneur having been inspired early on by the likes of Napoleon Hill and Og Mandino. Nowadays, his intrinsic curiosity and wisdom is paying off as a media personality quoted on The Huffington Post, Fox Business, and Next Avenue, and most recently taking to the airwaves to entertain life’s pivotal questions with the help of celebrated thought leaders, mentors, and everyday unsung heroes.
