How to Brave the New Normal Together Through Personal Agency & Conscious Collective Action with Paul Napper & Aaron Dignan

Paul Napper & Aaron Dignan


     Do you ever take time to consider the synchronicities and connections you may not notice because you are too busy? Humans are subtly, nuanced creatures who are part of the heavens and the earth, but our new, highly-stimulated environments leave little time for magic or deep thought. Our minds are continuously bombarded with branded messages designed to make us take action in a direction we may not want to go. To discover how we can regain personal agency and reduce the amount of control industry-focused cultures have over us, Positive Psychology Podcast Host, Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two changemakers who encourage humans to discover their personal truth and carry it proudly throughout the day. Dr. Paul Napper works with individuals and companies to foster behavioral changes that promote better decision making through strengthening personal agency and reducing stimuli. And, Aaron Dignan guides notable Fortune 500 companies through leadership techniques that encourage heart-nourishing, human-focused decisions.
