Personal Agency and Positive Disruption with Paul Napper PsyD & Daniel Burrus

Paul Napper PsyD & Daniel Burrus


Overstimulation is affecting us all. Everywhere we turn screens, people, and devices are battling for our attention. Without the right tools, it becomes easy to get stuck in the mire or not advocate for ourselves in the best way possible and focus our attention on the future. To discover how we can regain personal agency and make better decisions, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two authors about their literary guidebooks. Changemaker Paul Napper discusses key elements of his book, The Power of Agency, and the challenges many people face when making decisions in this overstimulated world. Futurist Daniel Burrus describes how we can become opportunity managers and make decisions with confidence using the tenets of his book, The Anticipatory Organization.
