Alex Dorr is a former professional basketball player for the Derby Trailblazers in Derby, England, and holds a master of science in international business, and a bachelor of science in business administration. His journey with the reality-based philosophy began with his internship with Reality-Based Leadership, when he was introduced to Cy Wakeman’s message and witnessed the incredible results her clients were experiencing. Over the next several years, Alex became a practitioner, living by the philosophy and determined to put its principles to the test. Whether it was international sales, event management, or even professional basketball, the philosophy’s core principles of ditching the drama and turning excuses into results continued to catapult him into career opportunities he could have never expected. As a young leader in the workplace, he noticed some common patterns that continued to emerge. It did not matter which side of the Atlantic Ocean Alex was on or what industry he was working in; there was one constant keeping people from achieving the results and happiness they longed for—drama. Inspired by how well the reality-based techniques allowed him to step into the power he already had as an employee while, at the same time, defusing drama and calling those he led to greatness, Alex began speaking and training. Today, he is a full-time member of Cy Wakeman’s team and a certified facilitator handpicked by Cy to deliver the reality-based message, collaborating with organizations to change their mindsets and succeed in spite of the challenging circumstances they face.
