Leadership by Design: Improving ROI Through Integrity, Alignment, and Agency with Paul Napper Ph.D. & Philippe Bouissou, Ph.D.

Paul Napper Ph.D. & Philippe Bouissou, Ph.D.


We all want a good return on our investment, especially when we invest in ourselves or our creative ideas. Decision-making can become cloudy when we limit the use of our intuition or when we are not in alignment with the purpose of our business. Without the right tools, it becomes easy to get stuck in the mire or to not advocate for ourselves in the best way possible. To unearth the tools experienced business leaders and educators use to advance the growth of themselves and their businesses, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two scholars who authored books on how to make lives and businesses sustainable. 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. And, Philippe Bouissou shares takeaways that make his book, Aligning the Dots, a litmus test for entrepreneurs when creating a successful and sustainable business.
