Don Scott

As a part of my series about “How to Slow Down To Do More” I had the pleasure to interview Don Scott, The Business Leader Coach, working with owners and leaders of substantial privately-held companies. He is a former Arthur Andersen partner, with 19 years there. In the next leg of his career, he was instrumental in building and running a billion dollar trust company operation. Don brings the unique combination of 35 years of business experience with a Master’s degree in psychology. He helps clients find clarity, and transform their businesses, careers, and lives in powerful ways.
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us the “backstory” about what brought you to this specific career path?
I grew up poor, in a place where expectations were low. I didn’t enroll in college until I was 20, but then completed my four-year degree in two years flat. I was driven. My personal boundaries were tight and confining. I worked, struggled, succeeded, fell down, and got back up. I was profoundly gifted at doing things the hard way. If the school of hard knocks gave a diploma, mine would have reached from floor to ceiling.
When I was about 50, I had an epiphany. I had always thought I would succeed my way out of my problems. It hit me like a ton of bricks, standing in front of my very nice desk, in my very nice study, in my very nice home. I was going to run out of time. And that none of that “stuff” meant didley squat. The trajectory of my life changed in ways I could not have imagined and I discovered how to help other “partially successful” people create that same magic in their lives.
