430. Change Contagion – With Professor Richard Boyatzis PHD and Mark Walsh

Author professor Richard Boyatzis joins me to talk how management isn’t about just IQ, competencies, Daniel Goleman, why leadership training doesn’t work, emotional contagion, neuroscience, nature, stress, renewal movements, play, hope, what leads to change, sobriety, weight loss, and narcissism.
