Peter van Stralen  Speaker | Coach | Author | Former CEO Of The Grounds Guys ✈️🎥🌎 WORK + PLAY + CARE 🏄🏽‍♂️🚵🏼‍♂️⛺️ On an adventure with my family @epicfamilyroadtrip

Last night I had the privilege of speaking at the Rotary Club in the town where I grew up. I had a lot of fun reconnecting with old friends customers and fellow volunteer firefighters from the hall my brothers and I served on back in the day. #workplaycare #epicfamilyroadtrip #keynotespeaker

So proud of the amazing, giving and caring people at The Grounds Guys for raising $14k for charity. Thank you Candice for working so hard for the cause. You are changing lives and making a difference! Much love also to the RMHC organization for the incredibly important work you do. #rmhc #rmhctoronto #workplaycare #careleadership

Another spectacular day in Banff, Alberta, Canada 🇨🇦 with my family. We spent the day hiking and enjoying the beautiful Lake Louise area.

After 2 1/2 years on the road, exploring the world together as a family, we have developed a much deeper appreciation for each other’s company and for the time we are able to share together. Today is Daniel’s 14th birthday. We have watched him grow from a little boy to a young man these past years, and he is at least a foot taller since we began our journey. Happy birthday Daniel. We admire your curiosity for life, your sense of humour, your contribution to family conversation and your love for God. We love you very much. Happy birthday 🎁#epicfamilyroadtrip #workplaycare #familyadventures #familylife #jeeplife #overland #rvlife #winnebagolife

Happy Mother’s Day Carol! Thank you for being so loving, kind and adventurous! You inspire us everyday!! ❤️💕😍 We love you so much!

Happy Mother’s Day Mom! Thank you to my sister Julia for finding him posting this picture from many moons ago. This was back in the 70s when Mom and Dad took us all camping every summer on the beach in beautiful Picton, Ontario. @nellievanstralen I think you’ve earned the title “supermom” for successfully raising 15 children who honor and adore you. May you have a blessed day! #workplaycare #epicfamilyroadtrip

Spending time learning from the great speaking coach Lou Heckler at his lovely home in Gainesville Florida. Investing in skills development and learning is one of the best investments you can make. #workplaycare #careleadership #epicfamilyroadtrip

What an uplifting week!
You know that feeling you get when you surround yourself with ambitious, successful, caring people who are smarter than you? Just being in their presence inspires, challenges and elevates your thinking. —— This week my team (fam) and I had the privilege of interviewing three top executives at The Dwyer Group. I am conducting research for a new book I am working on, for my Keynote talks and for my coaching practice. —— First I had a conversation with Mike Bidwell, CEO of The Dwyer Group about the importance of intentionally guiding the culture of your organization and the amazing outcomes that are the result of a unified team all working towards a shared vision. (Mike knows a thing or two about producing results!) I spoke with Mary Thompson COO about the leadership lessons she has learned over the years, both as a USMC commander and as a business executive. She spoke about what happens when there is trust within a team and gave me a glimpse into the concepts in the book she is writing “The Art of Joyful Leadership”. (Can’t wait to read it)

I also had some awesome conversations with Dina Dwyer-Owens, co-chair of the board and past CEO, while mountain biking, boating and exploring her home town of Waco Texas together. We spoke about the importance of having clear strong values in business in family life and in every area of your life. —— The Dwyer Group is one of the world’s largest service-based franchise companies with 800 home office employees, 3500 franchisees doing almost $2 billion in services at homes and businesses in 9 countries.
They are well known and respected for their code of values which permeates the entire organization from the office of the CEO to the front line team members. —— Thank you Mike, Mary and Dina for taking the time to meet with me and for sharing your extensive knowledge and wisdom. —— If you are looking to create a better workplace for your team or for yourself, stay tuned ... I can’t wait to share everything I’ve learned with you! —— Tag a friend who loves learning about leadership, culture and employee engagement.
