Warwick Fairfax, the founder of Crucible Leadership, talks about how to go from setback to significance and how to not let your worst day define you. Crucible leadership is a philosophical and practical breakthrough for turning business and personal failures into the fuel for igniting a life of significance.


Warwick was only 26 when, as the fifth-generation heir to the media empire bearing his family name, he led — and lost — a multibillion-dollar public takeover bid. Consequently, the company founded by his great-great grandfather slipped from family control after 150 years.


Warwick is the Wall Street Journal best-selling author of Crucible Leadership: Embrace Your Trials to Lead a Life of Significance.  And, he holds an undergraduate degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford University and earned his MBA from Harvard Business School. Also, he is an International Coach Federation (ICF) certified executive coach.


Listen and learn about Warwick’s Crucible Experience, a setback and failure that changed the trajectory of his life. And, these Crucible Experiences are common. Crucible Leadership commissioned research that found 71 percent of people acknowledge experiencing one. 

Ultimately, Crucible Experiences are not the end of our stories. And, if we learn the lessons from them, they can fuel a life of significance.  


Finally, listen and learn as Warwick explains the the elements of moving beyond crucibles:

  1. Understanding how the crucible refined you
  2. Discovering how you were designed
  3. Casting a vision for a life on purpose dedicated to serving others
  4. Marshaling resilience while using your gifts and passions to bring your life of significance to reality
