Peter Haid Show Notes

Peter was out of balance. He entered a situation that required an entirely different level of teamwork. Luckily he realized that he needed to shift his attention and put some things on pause to focus on what matters. Listen to Peter tell his story as he shares much more about how to be bold, make a change and to go first.

Peter Haid, husband, and father of two wild toddler boys… was raised in beautiful Colorado and still resides there today.  As a kid, Peter could be found anywhere from the varsity golf team to building a potato launcher with friends in the garage. Shaped by his older brother’s pull towards adventure and his sister’s pure heart for scholastics, Peter landed somewhere in the middle.  He inherited his mother’s passion for helping others and his father’s business skills.

Peter joined the corporate world at the age of 18 and finished two degrees at CU Denver taking night classes. He has launched several startups but is most proud of the innovative, volunteer-boosting, platform nurtured out of his entrepreneurial MBA; a 501C3 non-profit.  His professional experience includes over sixteen years in business operations and customer experience management.  His current focus is 50% family and 50% lasered in on Customer Experience strategy and executive coaching.  He is honored to be considered a CX Expert by the CXPA and drive momentum into the human side of business.

Peter has a personal mission and a message.  His mission is “to gratefully be a loving husband, serve noble causes with integrity, and never lose a spirit of adventure in this rehearsal life”. His message is for millennials looking to fast track their leadership… “Pull your head out of your apps”.
