What is your Next Chapter?

Oct 31, 2016

This episode with Pam and Charlie really is about Change and Uncertainty because any time you travel to a foreign country, things rarely turn out the way you expect them to. Most of your expectations seem to get turned upside down, and are changed, like it or not. So… in order to have a great experience you learn to drop most all expectations and simply “go with the flow.”

Let’s start with some background. Pam and I have been in Italy for a little more than two weeks and have accomplished the foolish task of visiting 5 areas in that short time: We have stayed in Lake Como, Cinque Terre, Siracusa and Palermo Sicily, and finally Milan. And you know what? I’m about to keel over in exhaustion. 

Pam and I are moderately experienced travelers and yet we continue to learn and grow with each experience. We plan to talk about some of that growth today. 

Before I bring on Pam, I’d like you to know she is a Leadership Coach working with corporate executives, directors and managers. She plans all the details of our trips, while it is my job is to figure what we want to do once we get there. She's a planner. I’m a curious learner. We make a great team.

Our conversation today is with Molli Ezio, who goes by Ezio. Ezio is co-owner of one of the most famous restaurants in Northern Italy named La Darsena. Located in Lake Como, it is about as far north as you can get in Italy. The setting here is enchanting—a lake surrounded by dozens of magnificent little breathtaking Italian villages. In fact, George Clooney, Richard Branson, and Mark Zuckerberg all own villas here.

Molli Ezio, has led an industrious life, owning 6 hotels and restaurants in Lake Como only to realize that a 16 hour work-day didn’t allow him to be the kind of father he wanted to be to his children. So he eventually downsized to just one restaurant and hotel, La Darsena in Tremezzo, Lake Como.

In this interview Charlie and Ezio talk about the importance of family from a personal Italian point of view. And then we discuss the constant seasonal changes required to operate a world-class restaurant.

Please note that English is Ezio’s second language. Sometimes communication between the two becomes an adventure in translation. All the more fun!

Patricia Romboletti has more than 15 years of experience as a retained executive recruiter, providing C-Suite recruiting services for middle-market, closely held, and family-owned businesses.   For more than 4 years, she has served as a career strategist and coach for in-transition executives.

Charlie and Pat chat at length about the role of Curiosity in your career, both in search of a new career as well as advancement in your current career. It is the curious seeker/learner that lands the position they most desire. They are the ones who are never satisfied with the status quo, the ones looking for a better way or a stronger strategy or new idea.

Our hope is that this podcast will motivate you to allow your natural curiosity run wild and lead to exciting changes in your job or career.

Together again, Charlie and Terry discuss the fact that change and uncertainty are inevitable. Unpredictability and randomness are fertile grounds for creativity.

They use the book by Pixar's Ed Catmull, Creativity Inc. as a starting point for the conversation. Pixar executive Ed Catmull does a great job of explaining the wonder of change and uncertainty in life and in any creative endeavors.

This conversation is not meant solely for artists, but for all of us as we go though life not really knowing what will happen next. It's that "unknowing" that can bring out the best in each of us.
