LOS ANGELES, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --IC Places, Inc. (OTC Pink:PNCH), IC Places is pleased to announce, after a great deal preparation, it will shoot the premier episode of UnCommon Denominator on June 13th 2014 from its sound stage at Empire Media Center in Glendale CA. The show, hosted by Steven Samblis, takes a modern day business man, guided by a mastermind group of business moguls, who set out each week armed only with an introduction to meet, and discover within the highest achievers on the planet, what made them successful and to find in them a UnCommon thread of greatness.
The show is the first in-house production by IC Places which will be a part of the premier launch lineup on Imagination TV.
The premier episode guest will be Best Selling Author and founder of The Human Potential Project, Chris Majer.
He is a modern day entrepreneur, innovator, and adventurer who has trekked the wilds of Africa, Alaska, and the Amazon. He is a Rugby player with a Master Degree who has taught hand-to-hand combat to Marines, performance principles to the Special Forces, and leadership, management, strategy and innovation to the corporate world.
Chris' work evolved out of his early days as a competitive rugby player. In 1981 he began by working exclusively with athletes to isolate and reproduce the elements of consistent winning performance. His success with individual athletes and teams caught the attention of the military and he and his firm spent nearly three years working with the Army to design new ways of training soldiers. This work culminated in a year long classified project with the Army's Special Forces.
In the mid 80s the firm began working with corporate clients, again generating remarkable results. Under Chris' leadership, the firm grew into a skilled team of professionals working globally. Chris was the principal architect of transformational projects for corporate clients such as AT&T, Cargill, Microsoft, Intel, EDS, Capital One, Amgen, and Allianz Life of North America.
Chris has spent over two decades developing innovative and highly effective approaches for enabling organizations of any size to maximize their performance. This transformational body of work is called Commitment Based Management.
He is the author of 20 white papers and The Power to Transform Passion, Power, and Purpose in Daily Life, which was published by Rodale.
Chris earned a MPA in Organizational Development from the University of Washington. He also studied extensively with philosopher Dr. Fernando Flores, known for his work on the foundations of commitment-based management. In addition he has been an Aikodo student and spent time with various martial arts teachers.
He has been featured in Time, People and Esquire and has appeared on the Today Show, Charlie Rose, and the MacNeil/Lehrer Report. Chris has also been a keynote speaker at venues around the world.
