“We all have the liberty to choose the wave we want to surf.”
The Executive Surfer is a trilogy of stories about personal development as seen through the eyes of José Angel Navarro, a young management consultant, passionate about surfing, and Frank Skylar, Master Coach and COO of one of the most important consulting firms in the world.
During their search for the light to transcend to new levels of consciousness, both characters are faced with challenges in conference rooms and in the most defiant waves of the planet.
“The idea was born during a trip to Peru to train IBM’s sales force. There I met Igor Zlatar, VP of Sales and CEO of one of the country’s most important technology companies. He invited me to run waves that weekend together with another surfer, VP of Citibank. We toured the coast searching for the perfect wave. At the end we found ourselves in Cerro Azul, on top of a wave at the very place immortalized by the Beach Boys in their song Surfing Safari. This turned out to be one of the most extraordinary surf sessions I have ever experienced.”
“The Executive Surfer lives in all of us. It is a metaphor of the hero’s cycle. I hope this message will inspire my readers to advance toward new levels of productivity, abundance and growth.”
