Kirk Weisler Show Notes

Kirk Weisler had a small adversity that really had a great impact on him. One that he didn’t really foresee or intend. As an assistant soccer coach he was warned by several parents, with all of the drama parents can bring, about an obstruction on the soccer field. Listen to Kirk tell his story of how he got bugged about it and how taking action changed his life forever.

Kirk was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and lived in several cities in Michigan and Tyler, Texas. Kirk was the middle of three sons.

After High School he lost more money than he made. After a couple of years he joined the US Army as a Ranger because he needed to gain some discipline.

After giving four years to his government he decided to serve two years to his God and serve a two year mission for his Church.

After that Kirk went a two-year college because he was rejected by every major university he applied to. That’s where he met his lovely wife Rebecca. After completing his degree Kirk was accepted to Brigham Young University where he received a degree in Organizational Behavior & Youth Leadership.

His unique background as a US Army Ranger, a member of the 19th Special Forces Chaplaincy, his work with At-Risk Youth and experience as a Master Storyteller & Team Builder make him a very fun, engaging, and sought after speaker.

Kirk is the Chief Morale Officer at Team Dynamics and works with companies and organizations around the globe. He is an expert speaker, author and creator of outrageously cool workplace cultures and high performance teams.

Over the past 17 years over 50,000 Leaders have specifically sought Kirk’s advice and wisdom on building teams, strengthening leaders and improving culture.

He authored the Best Smelling book, The Dog Poop Initiative and the semi–sweet best smeller, “The Cookie Thief.

Kirk currently lives in Phoenix AZ with “Wonderful wife Rebecca and thank God he has a lot of energy because they are busy raising six (remarkable) children.
