Who's Got All of the Chips? It Could Be You!

Do You Play Poker Or, Have You Never Played Poker? 

The reality is that it doesn't matter!

Become better at your business through the skills of poker!

Interested? Then 'Do You Ever Wonder?' has got an episode for you!

Our special guest, Ellen Leikind, created Poker Divas to teach how the skills necessary to be a great poker player, are many of the same skills that will allow all of us to strive to reach our full potential in business!

Ellen's background includes entrepreneurship, corporate innovation, marketing positions for various companies AND as author of 'Poker Woman - How to win at love, life and business using the principles of poker'.

When asked she will tell you that 'I'm not a poker player, but a businesswoman who learned how the game of poker could enhance my professional performance!'

We spoke about how the game of poker can teach Teams to...

  • Create a culture where everyone is encouraged to participate,
  • Gain insights into each other’s personalities and motivations,
  • Look beyond politics, position, culture, and educational level,
  • Shift perceptions  and reduce unconscious bias,
  • Connect and discover what they have in common, and
  • Have a great time and learn life long business lessons.


Law firms can have a CLE tailored for them that uses poker to drill down on negotiation and even business development techniques.

We also discussed the newly developed B.O.L.D. System Course for becoming a Master Negotiator (TheBoldSystemCourse.com).

All in all the 30-minutes with Ellen went by very quickly, and as the owner of a business, in addition to hosting Do You Ever Wonder, one of my plans for the new year is now to take advantage of the tools that Ellen and PokerDivas.com can teach both myself and my employees.

During the episode you will get Ellen's contact info, but it is provided below as well...
